Born today, you combine the imagination of a dreamer with the uncompromising practicality of someone who knows how to get things done. Indeed, it is this combination that will inform your greatest accomplishments and allow you to succeed where others have failed. You are often able to dream up ideas that even the best of those around you could never think of; just when one might be dismissed by others as "impossible," you have a way of proving that it not only can be done but should be done. You never lose sight of a chosen objective, and you aren't one to lose sight of the big picture even as you focus on the most minute details. You are able to implement a plan in such a way that failure is, quite simply, not an option.
Despite your hard-working, uncompromising approach to professional endeavors, and your seemingly hard-boiled character, you can be quite emotional, revealing at times a sensitivity that is rare among those born under your sign. You may harbor a surprising, secret belief that love is the reason for everything in life.
Also born on this date are: Lillian Gish, actress; Dwight D. Eisenhower, U.S. military leader and president; Ralph Lauren, fashion designer; William Penn, founder of Pennsylvania; e.e. cummings, poet.
