Born today, you can sometimes be rather self-indulgent, as your emotions are almost always very near the surface and you tend to react in a knee-jerk fashion, without thinking about the consequences, to whatever the world brings you. You will have learned, when young, to fight your way through all manner of obstacles. Indeed, your first instinct is to run rather than walk, to force rather than persuade, to take what you want rather than earn it. Later in life, however, you will surely learn the subtle art of negotiation. As you do, your character will ripen and soften to the degree that you are able to be somewhat more circumspect in your thoughts and behavior. Ultimately, selfishness can turn to selflessness, and you may become one of the most giving individuals born under your sign.
Much of your bluster is merely an attempt to conceal your native shyness and the feeling that you are simply not good enough. This is only a feeling, however, not the truth! The fact is that you are capable of holding your own in almost any competitive situation. You do have what it takes to win, no matter the game or the venue.
Also born on this date are: Joss Stone, singer; Joel Grey, actor; Jennifer Esposito, actress; Ethel Kennedy, activist and philanthropist; Meshach Taylor, actor; Lisa Stansfield, singer; Louise Lasser, actress; Dean Acheson, politician; Bill Irwin, actor and clown.
