Born today, you are not one of those flighty individuals who enjoy fleeting relationships or one-night stands. Rather, you prefer to get to know people deeply, on a level that is eschewed by most. You are not one for small talk; when you engage someone in conversation, it is likely to be about the important issues of the day, and there will surely be a purpose behind the give-and-take of ideas and information. You want to get things done, to have an impact, to be remembered for contributing to the world in a positive and lasting way -- and it is very likely that you will be! You are not in it for recognition or reward. You do what you do because you feel compelled to do it -- because you see the need for substantive, lasting improvements in the world around you.
You are reliable, honest and fair. You are also eager to see others prevail. In this way, you are a classic Virgo native, on a mission to restore justice to the world in ways both large and small. You are usually quite easygoing, but when angered you can become volatile -- if only temporarily.
Also born on this date are: Mother Teresa, religious leader; Chris Pine, actor; Macaulay Culkin, actor; Melissa McCarthy, actress and comedian; Geraldine Ferraro, politician; Branford Marsalis, musician; Michael Jeter, actor; John Mulaney, comedian; Dylan O'Brien, actor; Antoine Lavoisier, chemist; Will Shortz, puzzle expert; Mike Colter, actor; Chris Burke, actor; Shirley Manson, singer.
