Born today, you are ever hopeful, diligent and eager to move forward toward some shining indication of opportunity and potential. You have been endowed with tremendous spirit and talent, and you will put them to good use at all times, particularly when the going gets tough, the overall mood is bleak and things are not looking good. At times like that you shine -- and you will find that your positive outlook and ability to see past any temporary downturn will inspire others and give them the strength they need to carry on as well. You are a born planner -- you are always coming up with new ideas and new ways to implement them. You may find, however, that you're not always able to set those plans in motion on your own. Fortunately, you know how to attract others into your orbit and assemble a crack team!
You don't overcomplicate things, particularly your personal life. You like whom you like, and you dislike very few. You do not succumb to every attraction, but you engage your wits so that you can proceed with care at all times. You are never one to wear your heart on your sleeve, nor do you ignore what it is telling you at any given moment. You keep emotions in balance most of the time.
Also born on this date are: Malia Obama, presidential daughter; Eva Marie Saint, actress; Calvin Coolidge, U.S. president; Gina Lollobrigida, actress; Gloria Stuart, actress; Bill Withers, singer-songwriter; Abigail Van Buren and Ann Landers, advice columnists; Geraldo Rivera, television personality; Nathaniel Hawthorne, writer; Neil Simon, playwright; Pam Shriver, Olympic tennis player.
