Born today, you are quite upbeat and likable, but there is something of a shadow that lurks just beneath your affable exterior. Your life is likely to progress according to alternating phases of happiness and productivity, and depression and stagnation -- but, fortunately, you will always know when one phase is about to give way to another. You needn't suffer as a result of your moodiness; you can actually make it work for you if you take the time to learn as much about yourself as you possibly can. You prefer to work as a member of a close-knit team that shares responsibilities and communicates openly and honestly.
You are largely practical, but you can indulge in flights of fancy now and then -- it is likely that one or two may result in the kinds of ideas that can make your life a big success! You know how to turn a dream into a reality, and you understand that even slow progress can get you where you want to go.
Also born on this date are: Joan Didion, author; Margaret Cho, comedian; Carrie Hamilton, actress; Walt Disney, animator; Jim Messina, singer and songwriter; Little Richard, rocker; Fritz Lang, filmmaker.
