Born today, you are likely to dedicate your life to the pursuit of very private pleasures that only you can truly appreciate. You are not one to care very much at all what others think about how you spend your time and energy; you are out to please yourself and make your way in a complicated world -- not to please others or satisfy their needs and desires. You are outspoken, confident and virtually unshakeable in your beliefs; you're not likely to be persuaded otherwise by anyone, no matter how much expertise he or she may have. What is most important to you is your personal experience -- and that is something no one can share with you or understand. Your entire life is lived in response to what you encounter; in that way, you will always be singular and unique.
You are able to move comfortably from one group of people to another without falling out of step at all. You are so comfortable with other people, in fact, that it may seem that everyone is your good friend -- and you're not going to let anyone think otherwise, for you know how advantageous that can be.
Also born on this date are: Michael Jordan, basketball player; Paris Hilton, model; Bonnie Wright, actress; Joseph Gordon-Levitt, actor; Larry the Cable Guy, comedian; Denise Richards, model and actress; Jim Brown, football player; Jason Ritter, actor; Michael Bay, director; Rene Russo, actress; Lou Diamond Phillips, actor; Hal Holbrook, actor; Jerry O'Connell, actor; Mary Ann Mobley, actress and former Miss America; Buddy Ryan, football coach; Alan Bates, actor; Barry Humphries, actor and comedian; Arthur Kennedy, actor.
