Born today, you are always able to see the silver lining within every cloud, and even though you may not always peel away the gray exterior to get to that shiny core, you will almost always maintain a positive, forward-thinking attitude. There are those who might suggest that what you sometimes try to do is impossible, but you know no such word when it comes to pursuing your dreams or doing what you know to be right. When it comes to such things, you will follow your instincts to the end, confident that you will prevail regardless of the odds against you. You are the very definition of "dauntless," and your inner strength and fortitude are likely unmatched by anyone else born under your sign.
You are a straight shooter, and you play by the rules -- though when you have the opportunity to make those rules you do so with everyone's best interests at heart. You never want to win at someone else's expense; what you learn each day, you are more than willing to share with those around you.
Also born on this date are: Beyonce, singer; Wes Bentley, actor; Mitzi Gaynor, actress; Dick York, actor; Tom Watson, golfer; Ione Skye, actress; Damon Wayans, actor and comedian.
