Born today, you are a passionate individual who sometimes jumps into things without heeding any warnings. This can be hazardous at times, surely, but you believe in the age-old axiom that "readiness is all," and so you do your best to prepare yourself for any sort of eventuality. You enjoy doing things that haven't been done before and learning all you can from endeavors that are previously untried. You enjoy a challenge, and you thrive on situations that require you to react immediately to changing circumstances. Your instincts are keen, and you listen to them -- most of the time.
You continue to look forward, regardless of setbacks. When bad things happen, you turn them into opportunity and potential -- even if it means that you will be taking two steps forward and one step back in the process. You do not place much stock in that which is temporary, whether good or bad; it's only the long-term that really interests you -- and inspires you.
Also born on this date are: John Schneider, actor; Robin Wright, actress; Felix Hernandez, baseball player; Patricia Arquette, actress; Sonja Henie, Olympic skater and actress; Mary Pickford, actress; Betty Ford, U.S. first lady; John Havlicek, basketball player; Catfish Hunter, baseball player.
