Born today, you look at life not so much as an adventure, but as a learning experience -- a journey of discovery during which you will observe, experiment, study and evolve. This is not meant to suggest, of course, that you are all work and no play; on the contrary, you know how to have as much fun as the next person, and you believe in the adage that "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." Though you are drawn to endeavors that are serious and promise to offer up important results, you do have a whimsical streak and can let it all go in favor of fun and games -- but only when you believe you can spare the time. You have a fine mind and can remember names and faces as well as facts and figures. You also know how to use your various talents to further your professional ends in a way that does not attract a lot of attention.
You are reliable and dependable -- when you choose to be. Though you can be quite a fine employee, one to be counted on and to be trusted with important responsibilities, the fact is that you are not destined to work for others. You do your best work on your own, and you enjoy the surprises that solo work can bring.
Also born on this date are: Joan Jett, singer; Debby Boone, singer; Scott Baio, actor; Andrea Bocelli, singer; Bonnie Hunt, actress; Shari Belafonte, actress; Tommy Lasorda, baseball manager; Tom Felton, actor; Elizabeth Bear, author; Tai Babilonia, figure skater; Nick Cave, singer-songwriter; Toni Basil, singer and choreographer.
