Born today, you tend to keep to yourself whenever circumstances allow, but that's not likely to be very much of the time, as you are almost sure to be forced into the public eye at some point -- and once you're there, privacy and solitude are likely to be rarities in your life. Fortunately, you are not one of those introverts who simply cannot mix and mingle or work well with others; on the contrary, you are perfectly able to be productive in all manner of group settings. You like to give orders, but you must always take care that you do not do so when it is inappropriate.
When you decide on a course of action, you do all you can to prepare yourself for success. Why do a thing, you ask yourself, if you're not going to do it well? You will study long and hard to learn how to do a thing better than those around you. You can be quite ambitious.
Also born on this date are: Martina McBride, singer; Jason Belmonte, professional bowler; Wil Wheaton, actor; Tim Gunn, TV personality; Clara Bow, actress; Peter Jennings, newsman.
