Born today, you are never one to let expectation stand in the way of doing the things you most want to do when you want to do them. Indeed, you are likely to make a life out of bucking trends and adopting behavior that is contrary to the kinds of rules and regulations that shape the expectations of so many people you know. You are keenly interested in what makes people tick, and you will stop at nothing to expand your knowledge of mankind -- good, bad and in-between.
Though you can be fiercely competitive and will fight tooth and nail to maintain the advantage when you fear someone might be trying to deprive you of it, you are also a proponent of peace and harmony. You want people to get along, and you seem to have a kind of magic touch that allows you to resolve conflicts quickly and creatively.
Also born on this date are: Kelly Clarkson, singer; Barbra Streisand, singer, actress, director; Chipper Jones, baseball player; Cedric the Entertainer, actor; Shirley MacLaine, actress and author.
