Born today, you love nothing more than a good secret, and it doesn't matter whether it is your own, a friend's, a loved one's or a complete stranger's! Fortunately, however, the joy you find in secrecy derives from knowing something others don't -- and that, in itself, means that it is highly unlikely you will ever betray a confidence in any way. You simply like keeping secrets -- not revealing them! When it comes to work and play, you are not always as balanced as you might be, and you may occasionally go for long periods without getting the rest you need.
You don't always choose to do things the way others do them or get where you are going by conventional means; you enjoy now and then breaking with all norms -- and traditions, too -- and charting a new path for yourself that you are confident will get you where you want to go -- often ahead of schedule and with a minimum of hardship.
Also born on this date are: Shemar Moore, actor; George Takei, actor; Luther Vandross, singer; Jessica Lange, actress; Crispin Glover, actor; Clint Howard, actor; Don Mattingly, baseball player.
