Born today, you always prefer those episodes in life that are positive and full of potential -- and you will strive mightily to avoid anything negative, be it in your personal life or professional affairs. You cannot abide saying goodbye, and you are almost certain to have a large circle of friends whom you will never let go of, no matter what. Home is very important to you, and you will never let home be too far away, even when you find yourself traveling long distances for long periods of time. You will always remain in touch with family and friends who give you the inspiration and the encouragement you need to face all of life's challenges.
Despite this overall truth, you are very much in command of your emotions, and you never wear your heart on your sleeve. You realize that if you let your emotions get the better of you, you will not enjoy the success for which you are striving day in and day out.
Also born on this date are: Coolio, rapper; Jerry Garcia, singer and musician; Tempestt Bledsoe, actress; Francis Scott Key, poet; William Clark, explorer; Dom DeLuise, actor and comedian; Robert Cray, singer and guitarist; Herman Melville, author; Yves Saint Laurent, designer.
