Born today, you have a knack for sizing up other people very quickly, and while this can certainly serve you well in certain situations, you may at times encounter problems when your personal affairs are dictated by too quickly judging those you encounter. Still, you are rarely if ever one to use what you think about people against them; you are positive, friendly, accepting and always willing to let people change your mind about them. You do not like gossip and innuendo, probably because you often find yourself the subject of such talk -- and though you are very good at turning away from such attention, what you do hear can at times hurt you very deeply.
You have many talents, and you would no doubt shine in any one of a wide variety of jobs, but that job that allows you to do things your way and indulge your creative side is really the one for you. Like so many Taurus natives, you are somewhat torn between your need for autonomy and your ability to work with others.
Also born on this date are: William Shakespeare, playwright and poet; Shirley Temple Black, actress and ambassador; George Lopez, comedian; Taio Cruz, singer; Valerie Bertinelli, actress; Lee Majors, actor; Roy Orbison, singer.
