Born today, you go about your business without giving much thought at all to what other people think of you, your endeavors or the overall impact you may or may not have on the world at large. You believe that to base your contentment, whether personal or professional, on what other people think is simply foolishness, and you will live your life free of those kinds of ties and limitations.
You can at times be guilty of overindulgence, for you like all that is considered the "best" in life and will do all you can to provide yourself with it again and again. This can result in all manner of setbacks if you are not careful, and you must always guard against doing damage to your body or your mind by giving yourself too much of that which, in moderation, poses little danger at all.
Also born on this date are: Johnny Cash, singer and songwriter; Erykah Badu, singer; Michael Bolton, singer; Jackie Gleason, actor and comedian; Fats Domino, musician; Victor Hugo, author; Buffalo Bill Cody, Wild West showman.
