Born today, you are not always quick to determine where you fit in, either in your personal life or professional affairs. This is not because you don't have keen self-awareness, however. The trouble is that your personality has so many very different facets, it is impossible for you to pigeonhole yourself in any way. The truth is that while everyone is unique, you take the very concept of "unique" to a new level: You are very much yourself in all things and are not driven by a need to belong -- though you feel the desire to do so occasionally.
You enjoy stories of heroism and derring-do, and you often fancy yourself the kind of person who could ride in on a white horse and save the day! You carry yourself well and have a certain style all yours -- and that informs everything you do. You may, at times, be mocked by others for being somewhat eccentric in your manners and behavior.
Also born on this date are: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, composer; Eva Peron, Argentinian first lady; Gary Cooper, actor; Traci Lords, actress; Johannes Brahms, composer; Johnny Unitas, football player; Robert Browning, poet; Darren McGavin, actor; Anne Baxter, actress.
