Born today, you can be rather fussy at times, vacillating between this and that, professing to prefer one thing then moving on to the next in short order, without really landing on any single preference. This gives others the impression that you are flighty, mercurial or even without any scruples whatsoever -- which is simply not true. You care deeply about a great many things, but you are not one to tie your cart to any particular horse for very long. Why? You prefer to remain free, to let your instincts steer your course, to be open to as many options as are presented to you in life. Of course, this may make long-term relationships difficult -- unless you find exactly the right person!
You are serious and hard-working -- that is, you apply yourself fully to any endeavor, though it may not lead to a lengthy career in the true sense of the word. On the other hand, you may choose to devote yourself to a single line of work, where your steadfast nature will help you thrive.
Also born on this date are: Savannah Guthrie, television journalist; Louis Pasteur, microbiologist; John Amos, actor; Sydney Greenstreet, actor; Eva LaRue, actress; Johannes Kepler, astronomer; Marlene Dietrich, actress; Gerard Depardieu, actor; Cokie Roberts, journalist; Oscar Levant, actor and musician; Emilie de Ravin, actress.
