Born today, you have been endowed with a strong and colorful personality. You have the wherewithal to do the kinds of things that others are not willing to do in order to succeed. It is this last trait that can prove your downfall if you are not careful; living with no limits as you navigate life's more complicated avenues can be quite a danger for you. You require a little more self-control than you are wont to give yourself in order to make the most of the opportunities that present themselves to you. Further, you often make the mistake of believing what others say about you, especially when it is praise. You need to be more realistic about your own abilities.
You are quite optimistic, but you also have a cynical streak that can, at times, cause you to treat people poorly. You are likely to strain many a relationship in this way, until you learn to rein yourself in and avoid lashing out at those closest to you. Still, when you apologize, you almost always mean it -- and are almost always believed.
Also born on this date are: Rob Lowe, actor; Kurt Russell, actor; Gary Sinise, actor; Nat King Cole, singer; Patrick Duffy, actor; Billy Corgan, musician; Bobby Jones, golfer; Bayard Rustin, civil rights leader.
