Born today, you are always torn between the desire to express yourself freely and the need to center yourself and maintain balance in your daily life -- and it's not a battle you will find easy to win! You want to sail the wide world discovering as you go and indulging your every whim, and yet you recognize that to do so without relying upon a strong, reasonable and realistic foundation of knowledge and expectation you are likely to make little of your life in the process -- and that will never do!
Still, you are difficult to understand, and few know you well. There are times when this suits you perfectly well, and yet there are times in which you might wish you were less mysterious and flighty than you really are, for you would enjoy sharing your life with others in a way that you simply cannot.
Also born on this date are: Megan Fox, actress; Janet Jackson, singer; Pierce Brosnan, actor; Tori Spelling, actress; Liberace, musician and entertainer; Henry Fonda, actor; Adam Richman, actor and TV host; Danny Trejo, actor.
