Born today, you are certainly original, but that doesn't mean you go against the grain at all times. Rather, you pick and choose with great care when to do what is expected or required, and when to go off on your own and do things entirely your way -- and even when you do eschew the rules and push the boundaries, others are usually more than pleased with the results.
Your relationships are always very deep and satisfying; you have little use for the kinds of casual encounters that please some others. You want to know all you can about people, and you are perfectly willing to let them know all they want about you. You prefer to keep secrets about your romantic life -- but even then it is only to protect the one you love more than yourself!
Also born on this date are: LeBron James, basketball player; Tyrese Gibson, singer; Davy Jones, singer and actor; Meredith Vieira, TV host; Rudyard Kipling, author and poet; Bo Diddley, musician; Patti Smith, singer.
