Born today, you are one of those individuals who knows how to come from behind and take the world very much by surprise with your ability and your audacity. You are never in a hurry, however; you are more than willing to wait your turn -- provided you sense that your turn will come sooner rather than later! You are perfectly willing to do what you are told as long as doing so advances your personal agenda -- and, ultimately, your career.
There may come a time in your life, most likely during middle age, in which you are drawn to something new that reshapes your life in many ways. One who is afraid of change or the unexplored would turn away from any such calling, but you're more than willing to see where previously untraveled roads will take you -- and you are not afraid of any changes that may result from any new journey.
Also born on this date are: Ludwig Van Beethoven, composer; Chase Utley, baseball player; Laurie Holden, actress; Pope Francis, leader of the Catholic church; Eugene Levy, actor; Chris Matthews, political commentator and speechwriter.
