Born today, you are a highly thoughtful, quietly expressive, easygoing, loyal and upstanding individual. You are also something of an adventurer, which may come as a surprise to many -- even those who know you best. To every endeavor you give the most you can give, and you believe that only in excellence can one truly find happiness. This can be quite a harsh judgment against those who do not live up to your high standards -- but then, you don't really concern yourself with such people, do you? You devote yourself to your own endeavors.
You enjoy working with friends, but this doesn't mean you won't clash with them on certain key issues. Even then, however, you do so in a rational, thoughtful way.
Also born on this date are: Neil Armstrong, astronaut and first man on the moon; Maureen McCormick, actress; Patrick Ewing, basketball player; Loni Anderson, actress; John Huston, director; Terri Clark, singer.
