Born today, you are often to be found in the center of things, trying to keep everyone calm when there is a risk of things boiling over in some way. You thrive on fair dealing for everyone, and you will never stoop to taking undue advantage of anyone at any time -- even if it were to benefit you in some way. Despite the fact that you are a pacifist by nature, you are certainly not bland or forgettable. On the contrary, you are quite an exciting individual, and others are likely to remember you long after even the most quick and casual interaction. There is just something about you that sticks with people! It is likely that you will be widely admired throughout your lifetime.
What may surprise many is that you have a rather unique, even controversial, sense of humor. You are often making jokes about things that others would consider off-limits, simply because you see things from an unusual point of view. You never mean to offend -- though you may, at times, do just that.
Also born on this date are: Mahatma Gandhi, Indian leader; Sting, singer and songwriter; Kelly Ripa, actress and TV host; Avery Brooks, actor; Richard III, king of England; Groucho Marx, actor and comic; Bud Abbott, comic; Annie Leibovitz, photographer; Richard Hell, singer; Donna Karan, designer; Lorraine Bracco, actress.
