Born today, you know what power is, and you know how to wield it wisely and effectively -- on most occasions. There are times, however, when your personal peccadillos prevent you from doing what you would otherwise know is right, and compel you to behave in ways that may have even those who know you best shaking their heads in disbelief. You are so confident that it rarely occurs to you that you might be making a mistake; even if you were to entertain the thought that error is possible, you would nevertheless believe that you could undo whatever went wrong and make everything right again with anyone who really matters. You are impulsive and often whimsical; you don't always follow the rules, for you don't always feel they apply to you.
Only a very few are likely to be welcomed into your inner circle, and those few only because you are confident that they will accept you for exactly who you are. You despise pretense, yet you feel you have to pretend to be one thing or another when dealing with most people. Your true friends are those who know and love the real you.
Also born on this date are: King Henry VIII of England; John Elway, football player; Mel Brooks, filmmaker; Kathy Bates, actress; John Cusack, actor; Pat Morita, actor; Gilda Radner, actress and comedian; Jessica Hecht, actress; Gil Bellows, actor; Richard Rodgers, composer; Mary Stuart Masterson, actress; Bruce Davison, actor; Elon Musk, entrepreneur; Felicia Day, actress; Mike White, filmmaker and actor.
