Born today, you are both a dreamer and a doer, and you can often be found alone, running, biking, swimming, hiking, climbing or otherwise pumping the blood through your body while deep in thought. You can become very unhappy -- and actively cranky -- when you don't have something important to ponder and think about, but conversely you are happier than most when you are able to turn thought into action and make your dreams come true. You enjoy sharing your ideas with others -- but they have to share your outlook, your tastes and your overall intelligence. You don't open up to just anybody!
If it sounds like an audience can make you happy, it's true -- but it's not a requirement. You can satisfy yourself on your own by indulging in flights of fancy of all kinds.
Also born on this date are: Billy Ray Cyrus, singer; Sean Connery, actor; Tim Burton, director; Gene Simmons, singer and reality TV personality; Rachael Ray, chef and TV personality; Elvis Costello, singer; Blair Underwood, actor; Regis Philbin, TV personality.
