Born today, you have a unique way of looking at virtually everything, and this puts a smile on your face nearly all the time. It also sets you off down one path after another that is new, exciting and chock-full of opportunities for study, discovery and accomplishment. You believe that a life spent bettering oneself is a life well spent, and it's an endeavor you greatly enjoy. But more than that, you love helping others do the same, and you are very quick to spot the hidden potential that someone else might have deep within. When you find such a treasure, you will commit yourself to helping that person make the most of it. You are drawn to that which is new, including people. When you walk into a room, you will almost certainly talk first to the person you do not know, trying to draw him or her out so you can gain his or her trust and affection.
You display some odd behaviors when you are nervous, and you can be quite inconsistent and erratic at times -- even making decisions that seem to go directly against your best interests. Indeed, when you are on the spot, you tend to do and say things that make it almost impossible for you to get what you want!
Also born on this date are: Victoria Justice, actress; Seal, singer; Smokey Robinson, singer-songwriter; Jeff Daniels, actor; Nicolaus Copernicus, astronomer; Benicio Del Toro, actor; Justine Bateman, actress; Falco, singer; Amy Tan, writer; David Gandy, model; Roger Goodell, NFL commissioner; Ray Winstone, actor; Lee Marvin, actor.
