Born today, you are not always what other people think you are -- nor do you really ever try to be. In fact, you often feel compelled to be something other than what you seem, if only to satisfy a yearning to be different, inexplicable or unconventional. Like many others born under your sign, you harbor a deep internal conflict between a part of yourself that wants to be liked and a part that doesn't care a whit for the opinions of others. It is this conflict that will be the single greatest influence on your life, either internally or externally, in terms of what you think and feel, and what you are able to do and accomplish. It is likely that you will change course dramatically at least once, or perhaps even two or three times in your life, always seeking an outlet for your abilities and greater satisfaction for your curiosity.
You have quite a sense of humor, and your ability to surprise yourself and those around you with a few well-chosen words can be quite disarming. This will continue to be a valuable tool throughout your life. Indeed, your unique method of communicating with others may prove to be a strength no one else can match.
Also born on this date are: Taylor Lautner, actor; Jennifer Aniston, actress; Brandy Norwood, actress and singer; Thomas Edison, inventor; Sheryl Crow, singer-songwriter; Burt Reynolds, actor; Sarah Palin, politician; Tina Louise, actress; Leslie Nielsen, actor; Damian Lewis, actor; Eva Gabor, actress; Sidney Sheldon, writer; Sergio Mendes, bandleader.
