Born today, you are one of the most creative -- and productive -- individuals born under your sign. Always ready to embrace the next new opportunity, you rack up so many personal successes that it may seem at times as if you are simply immune to the kinds of setbacks and failures that plague all the mere mortals around you.
You know how to make room in your life for others, no matter how busy you may be at any given time. You recognize that success is not the same as contentment, and that the latter is dependent upon far more than work, recognition and reward. You are warm and communicative and always ready to do what you must to maintain healthy, open and trusting relationships.
Also born on this date are: Ginger Rogers, actress and dancer; Ruben Blades, singer, songwriter, bandleader; Roald Amundsen, explorer; Pinchas Zukerman, violinist; Will Ferrell, actor; Corey Feldman, actor.
