Born today, you are one who takes getting used to, as those who meet you are not always favorably impressed. You may even actively rub some people the wrong way at first. In time, however, those who don't simply turn away from you are likely to come under your unique spell -- which depends upon others recognizing the real you beneath the surface. This may take a while, of course, and you have the patience to wait it out -- but it also means that you may, at any given time, have only a handful of real friends whom you can count on through thick and thin.
You are a natural explorer, and you thrive on pursuing those goals that are uncommon and challenging -- physically, emotionally and psychologically. You can endure tremendous hardship of all kinds as you seek to be the best that you can be -- which is likely to be quite different from what others think you should be!
You often find yourself down in the dumps; try as you might, you are not always able to lift yourself up and carry on without the help of a friend or loved one. He or she knows just what you need to hear to help you recover from your darker moods -- and you must always show your gratitude for such dedication!
Also born on this date are: Johnny Cash, singer and songwriter; Erykah Badu, singer; Michael Bolton, singer; Jackie Gleason, actor and comedian; Fats Domino, musician; Victor Hugo, author; William Frawley, actor; Buffalo Bill Cody, Wild West showman; Tony Randall, actor; Robert Alda, actor; Ariel Sharon, Israeli leader; Betty Hutton, actress.
