Born today, you are more than capable of holding your own in almost any situation that may arise, yet you are not one to display overconfidence, blow your own horn or advertise your strengths to the world at large. You try to live as quiet a life as possible, finding comfort and meaning in friends, family and faith -- even if this faith is actually unique to you, not shared by anyone else you know. Your work may bring you into the public eye at times, but you can always be counted on to disappear again into your own private world, where true contentment can be found. You are talented, versatile and able to "reinvent" yourself when you choose.
When it comes to love, you can be quite tenacious, unwilling to take no for an answer from your prospective spouse. This approach may disappoint you and annoy others along the way, but you will eventually find that special someone who knows exactly how to match your unique strength with his or her own.
Also born on this date are: Denzel Washington, actor; Dame Maggie Smith, actress; John Legend, singer-songwriter; Seth Meyers, comedian and television host; Woodrow Wilson, U.S. president; Sienna Miller, actress; Nichelle Nichols, actress; Martin Milner, actor; Earl Hines, bandleader.
