Born today, you are a baffling combination of traits that would seem to be contradictory were you not proof that they can coexist within one human being. You are a generous individual with a certain selfishness that keeps you thinking about "No. 1"; you are hard-working, and yet you will drop everything to enjoy even a few moments of stolen leisure; you are quite disciplined, and yet you can turn on a dime and let things fall apart for lack of attention or care; and you are committed to endeavors that you love, yet you sometimes lack the drive to be the best that you can be. Others do not always know what makes you tick, and even those closest to you will shake their heads and admit that you are, in many ways, a complete mystery to them. But are you a mystery to yourself? That's the real question!
You know yourself better than most people know you, but that doesn't always make things easier for you. The truth is that your life is going to be one of constant self-discovery. One thing is for sure: You are a force of nature and someone to be reckoned with in love, work and play.
Also born on this date are: Mitt Romney, businessman and Massachusetts governor; Ron Jeremy, adult film star; James Taylor, singer-songwriter; Liza Minnelli, actress and singer; Aaron Eckhart, actor; Al Jarreau, musician; Darryl Strawberry, baseball player; Gordon MacRae, actor; Courtney B. Vance, actor; Jack Kerouac, author; Titus Welliver, actor; Edward Albee, playwright.
