Born today, you have been endowed with a clear head, a keen eye and the ability to navigate difficult situations in a calm, straightforward, unflappable manner. You are what many would call a "cool customer," in that you refuse to let your emotions get the better of you, even when those around you are falling apart. Your ability to identify and address key issues is nearly unequalled by anyone else born under your sign, and you are always helping others sort things out and resolve problems in a manner that is most productive and long-lasting. You know that what you say and what you do are going to have an impact. It's likely true that you will be in the public eye at various times in your life, and you take this responsibility very seriously. You know that it is a rare honor to be a true role model.
What many may not know about you is that you are always searching for something that, to you, remains hidden -- even though you sense now and then that it is just around the next corner. It is this sense -- that what you want is just out of reach -- that motivates you, both professionally and personally. You are always on the go, always moving forward.
Also born on this date are: Billy Joel, singer-songwriter; Mike Wallace, journalist; Glenda Jackson, actress; Prince Fielder, baseball player; Rosario Dawson, actress; Candice Bergen, actress; Albert Finney, actor; John Brown, abolitionist leader; James L. Brooks, producer; John Corbett, actor; Tony Gwynn, baseball player; William Pene du Bois, author and illustrator; J.M. Barrie, writer.
