Born today, you are not the kind to retreat in the face of a challenge, and in fact you are known for charging ahead at some risk to yourself even when the odds are long and the opposition fierce. You are a creative individual, always thinking outside the box to come up with plans that will take your opponents by surprise; you know how to use the element of surprise to your advantage in almost all dealings, be they personal or professional. You are an inspiring individual; you know what to say to others to get the best out of them, even under the most difficult circumstances. Though you are a born leader, you can certainly roll up your sleeves and work alongside those you command. You are solid and down to earth.
You are at your best when your abilities are on full display and you can flex your muscles to get things done -- not because you enjoy being the center of attention, but because it makes you feel useful in mind, body and spirit. Indeed, being useful and achieving lasting results are most important to you.
Also born on this date are: Vanessa Hudgens, actress; Nostradamus, soothsayer; Patty Duke, actress; Spike Jones, bandleader; Charlie Rich, singer-songwriter; Shirley Jackson, author; Lee Remick, actress; Tycho Brahe, astronomer; Bill Buckner, baseball player; Jimmy Doolittle, pilot; Dee Wallace, actress.
