Born today, you are likely, at some point in your life, to find yourself in a perfect position to call the shots and create exactly the life you want -- or at least the one that will be best for you in the long run. Before this happens, however, you may be something of a wanderer, traveling here and there, dabbling in this and that, learning what you can about the world and its peoples, experimenting with all manner of activities that promise either hefty rewards or no rewards at all. It is this exploration of all that life has to offer that will mold you into the kind of person who always weighs things rationally and in a manner that can lead to the best possible decisions. You aren't ever likely to choose unwisely for yourself or others.
You are quite adept at putting together puzzles of all kinds, especially those that require the pondering of circumstances and the putting together of seemingly random pieces of evidence into a coherent whole. You are never fooled by indicators pointing in impossible directions; you see what is wrong and align things to make sense and provide answers.
Also born on this date are: Prince Harry of Great Britain; Tommy Lee Jones, actor; Marco Polo, explorer; Dan Marino, football player; Agatha Christie, author; Oliver Stone, filmmaker; William Howard Taft, U.S. president; Gaylord Perry, baseball player; Merlin Olsen, football player and actor; Nipsey Russell, actor; Danny Nucci, actor; Jackie Cooper, actor; Fay Wray, actress; Josh Charles, actor; Tom Hardy, actor; Dave Annable, actor.
