Born today, you are known for an inner strength that translates into action on all fronts: the personal, the professional and the mystical. You are able to use these powers throughout life, transforming the ordinary endeavor into an extraordinary journey of discovery and accomplishment. Despite this, you are also quite realistic and down-to-earth; you recognize what must be done, and you do it -- day after day. You are not the kind to get so caught up in the details of something that you are, in effect, paralyzed; rather, you continue to move forward, confident that staying active will help you to learn the most important lessons as necessary.
Though you can be fiery and volatile, you prefer to remain calm and rational about things -- a common Libra trait, and one for which you will be grateful as it keeps you from engaging in unnecessary battles! You understand the need for balance in all aspects of your life.
Also born on this date are: Charlton Heston, actor; Rutherford B. Hayes, U.S. president; Liev Schreiber, actor; Christoph Waltz, actor; Buster Keaton, actor and comic; Melissa Benoist, actress; Jackie Collins, author; Tony La Russa, baseball manager; Anne Rice, author.
