Born today, you bring your skills, opinions and uniqueness to everything you do; you are nothing if not genuine. Others will trust in your authenticity throughout your lifetime. You are always willing to back up your words with action and do what you say you are going to do. Some may say that you are impulsive and, at times, dangerous -- but at least you are consistent! Rarely does anyone have to guess about what stand you will take or what you will do in the face of a challenge.
You will jump at virtually any professional opportunity, even if it is unconventional; those career choices that are longshots are most attractive to you. Though you do try to balance your career and your personal life, when push comes to shove, you will choose work over anything else in most cases.
Also born on this date are: Bob Saget, actor and comedian; Craig Ferguson, comedian and TV host; Sugar Ray Leonard, boxer; Carlos Pena, baseball player; Enya, singer; Taj Mahal, singer and songwriter; Bill Paxton, actor; Dennis Hopper, actor and director.
