Born today, you are not what you seem to be to most casual observers, but those who know you well understand that you are a solid, capable, well-meaning, determined, hardworking individual who has been endowed with tremendous talent -- and the desire to make the most of it. So what is it that other people are missing? To them, you seem rather shallow at times, unable to make the transition from amateur to professional, but this is an unfair assessment that is certainly only the product of taste. You do have what it takes to propel yourself to the highest levels of professional accomplishment. In fact, you can be found working toward just those kinds of goals at all times, even from an early age.
You can be rather erratic, especially when a situation becomes emotional for you, and you may occasionally have trouble holding on to personal relationships. You can be too quick to anger when your passions are near the surface, and not everyone can deal with this aspect of your personality.
Also born on this date are: Taylor Swift, singer; Jamie Foxx, actor; Dick Van Dyke, actor; Richard Zanuck, film producer; Steve Buscemi, actor; Ted Nugent, guitarist; Christopher Plummer, actor; John Davidson, actor; Wendie Malick, actress; Mary Todd Lincoln, U.S. first lady; Carlos Montoya, guitarist; Ben Bernanke, economist.
