Born today, you are always keen to explore places you do not know, and for this reason you will be drawn to foreign countries and exotic locales throughout your very busy lifetime. You learn a great deal from the behavior of others, and it is therefore much more than scenery that draws you to a particular place; you want, rather, to learn about the culture of a place, to immerse yourself in the way other people live and to develop a strong, lasting connection to them -- even if that means maintaining it from afar when at last you return home. Like so many born under your sign, you know what makes people tick -- but there may be times in which that isn't enough to understand or explain your behavior. Indeed, you often do things without knowing why -- especially when it comes to taking advantage of professional opportunities. You know how to make the most of a hunch.
You are recognized for your sense of fun and style. You can turn heads simply by walking into a room, and others are very likely to hang upon your every word -- when you choose to speak. The truth is that you can be rather shy, and you're not always willing to open up in front of a crowd. Private conversation is quite different, however; you enjoy one-on-one encounters.
Also born on this date are: Julia Roberts, actress; Edith Head, costume designer; Cleo Laine, actress; Jane Alexander, actress; Joaquin Phoenix, actor; Bill Gates, computer mogul; Jonas Salk, medical researcher; Dennis Franz, actor; Charlie Daniels, singer.
