Born today, you are certainly more aggressive than almost everyone else born under your sign, but you are also highly sensitive, with a keen awareness of the sufferings of others -- and the combination of these traits really is rather perfect! You can put up quite a fight when you have to, but you are always quick to promote the peace once you have won the battle.
When it comes to love and romance, you are something of an enigma, and anyone who tries, with romantic intentions, to get close to you is sure to have a difficult time of it, for you do not respond to the "classic" cues, and tend to respond to romantic attention in unusual ways.
Also born on this date are: James Cagney, actor; Donald Sutherland, actor; Erle Stanley Gardner, author; David Hasselhoff, actor; Phyllis Diller, actress; Luke Bryan, singer.
