Born today, you are compelled to be involved in what is going on around you, and you cannot abide sitting by and letting the world turn without exerting some kind of influence yourself. It's essential, of course, if you are to be effective at taking part in the world's affairs, that you know yourself, understand your strengths and weaknesses, and have a clear view of what it is you wish to accomplish. In other words, it's necessary at all times for you to have a clear goal in mind, for without it, your efforts are sure to be rather ineffectual, and you are likely to sink into an emotional abyss as a result.
You are quite adept at expressing yourself, and you may be one of the most accomplished communicators born under your sign. You aren't one to engage in written or spoken language that is complicated or flowery; you prefer to get your message across in the simplest, most straightforward manner possible.
Also born on this date are: Abigail Adams, U.S. first lady; Demi Moore, actress; Barbara Boxer, U.S. senator; Leonardo DiCaprio, actor; Jonathan Winters, comedian; Kurt Vonnegut Jr., author; George S. Patton, U.S. military leader.
