Born today, you are not always the most affable of individuals, in part because you are so self-absorbed that you do not always connect with those around you. Also, you tend to be a rather serious-minded individual, one who prefers to deal with people to get things done, rather than to enjoy their company. You can, at times, put people off by sharing your more controversial opinions -- but you never see any benefit in keeping silent when you have something to say! You prefer to go it alone when it comes to your work, and it is likely you will choose a profession that gives you a great deal of freedom while providing you with all the solitude you desire.
When it comes to love, you are something of a mystery, and most who find themselves attracted to you find you difficult to get to know. What you require, of course, is someone very much like yourself, who understands who you are because he or she is much the same! You are not a fan of "courtship."
Also born on this date are: Hank Williams Sr., singer and songwriter; John Ritter, actor; Charles Martinet, actor; Roddy McDowall, actor; Anne Bancroft, actress; William Carlos Williams, poet; Ken Kesey, author; Baz Luhrmann, director; Rita Rudner, comedian.
