Born today, you are not always one to keep up with things as they develop, which requires you to come from behind when sprinting for the finish line. You are careful to consider all sides to an argument, and there may be times in which others are unaware of your genuine position on a given matter. You consider it an advantage, in certain situations, to hold your cards very close to the vest, concealing what you have from anyone else around you. You are unafraid of danger and consider it an unavoidable by-product of a life well lived; if something "bad" is going to happen, you consider it a matter of fate.
You can soar very high one moment and then, quite suddenly, sink into an emotional abyss without warning. Fortunately, you rarely let either extreme affect your productivity at work; they can, however, adversely affect your personal relationships if you do not tend to them with great care.
Also born on this date are: Abraham Lincoln, U.S. president; Robert Griffin III, football player; Charles Darwin, biologist and author; Bill Russell, basketball player; Christina Ricci, actress; Arsenio Hall, actor and talk show host; Josh Brolin, actor; Michael McDonald, singer; Jesse Spencer, actor; Ray Manzarek, musician; Lorne Greene, actor; Anna Pavlova, ballerina; Joanna Kerns, actress; Joe Garagiola, baseball player and broadcaster; Franco Zeffirelli, filmmaker.
