Born today, you have a hard time dealing with people who are not genuine in their dealings with you or anyone else. You demand a kind of confidence and transparency from everyone you encounter, in part because these qualities define you. You have no time for anyone who would try to deceive you or attempt to hide the truth from you. When you ask a question, you expect an honest, straightforward answer; when you ask for a favor, you consider it done unless you are told otherwise -- and anyone who simply lets it go without doing it or communicating with you in some way is making an adversary of the wrong person, surely!
You have a heightened energy; when you walk into a room, you change things significantly, though at times quite subtly, for the better. If there is tension, you relax it; if there is hardship, you make things easier; if there is animosity, you know how to promote understanding. You put people first in everything you do.
Also born on this date are: Jeff Foxworthy, comedian; Chris Christie, New Jersey governor; Macy Gray, singer; Swoosie Kurtz, actress; Jo Anne Worley, actress.
