Born today, you are quite soulful, with a romantic streak a mile wide. You are also something of a dreamer, and you sometimes forget that you have to build a life for yourself upon a solid foundation of realistic expectations, lest you meet with frustration, failure and disappointment again and again. You are fair and decent, and you treat other people with respect born of understanding and a genuine desire to get along. There are times, however, when you may not treat yourself as well as you do those around you. Indeed, you may even suffer emotional and physical hardship as a result -- hardship that would be avoidable if you would simply say no now and then and make choices that are in your own best interest. You can slip up in big ways, but you can also recover fully, given the time and opportunity to do so.
Your single life is important to you, surely, but it is almost certain to give way to a committed romantic relationship later in life, for you will not be able to resist the charms of that certain someone who can capture your heart when he or she finally does come along! You and this lucky person can give each other precisely what you both need.
Also born on this date are: Robert Downey Jr., actor; Heath Ledger, actor; Maya Angelou, poet; Anthony Perkins, actor; Muddy Waters, musician; Craig T.

Kelley, television writer and producer; Estelle Harris, actress.
