Born today, you are a born adventurer, but you are not always one to venture into the unknown alone; you often want to be accompanied by someone who shares your appreciation of the new and untried, because an experience shared is better than one enjoyed on your own. Indeed, communication and interplay between yourself and other individuals is likely to be the centerpiece of your entire life -- personally and professionally. You have a way of making things better for others even as you focus on your affairs. You will have learned at an early age that people are willing to listen to you; you will begin to use this to your full advantage as you enter adulthood -- and with maturity will come expertise!
Despite your seeming emotional strength, you should and must be handled with kid gloves, even by those who love you dearly. There is a sensitivity that resides in your core that compels you to see the world in such a way that you can be easily hurt emotionally and psychologically.
Also born on this date are: Pam Dawber, actress; Melina Mercouri, actress; Jean-Claude Van Damme, actor and martial artist; George C. Scott, actor; Jesse Helms, U.S. senator; Chuck Berry, rocker; Peter Boyle, actor.
