Born today, you are one of the most quiet, private and even retiring individuals born under your sign, and yet this doesn't by any means suggest that you are without feeling; on the contrary, while you do not make a display of it, you are also perhaps the single most passionate Sagittarian -- and that is surely saying something! You feel deeply about almost everything, and even the most routine endeavor can take on tremendous meaning when you are engaged in it, for no small detail escapes your notice. You are led by your heart, but you are also highly intelligent and can translate feeling into thought with tremendous facility. Others may not know quite how to approach you, but that is fine with you; you prefer to be alone more often than not.
If you are propelled into the public eye, you will always do everything you can to protect that privacy. Your home life is your business, and what you do behind closed doors is sure to stay behind closed doors. You are certainly not one to air your dirty laundry in public!
Also born on this date are: Emily Dickinson, poet; Bobby Flay, celebrity chef; Michael Clarke Duncan, actor; Susan Dey, actress; Dan Blocker, actor; Kenneth Branagh, actor and director; Dorothy Lamour, actress; Fionnula Flanagan, actress; Chet Huntley, newscaster; Rod Blagojevich, former Illinois governor.
