Born today, you are a brave and forthright person, one with tremendous vision and the ability to see the truth when it is right in front of you -- and that, as you might suppose, is rare. Rarer still is your ability and willingness to name the truth when you see it and, in the course of everyday activities, call out those who refuse to see it or who peddle in lies and deceptions. You love to speak truth to power!
Also born on this date are: Savannah Guthrie, reporter and morning TV co-anchor; Louis Pasteur, scientist; John Amos, actor; Sydney Greenstreet, actor; Eva Larue, actress; Johannes Kepler, scientist and astronomer; Marlene Dietrich, actress.
In love, you are just as forthright. Whether you have a crush or have fallen head over heels for someone, you will face that truth head-on, embrace your feelings and share them with the object of your affection. Will you always get the desired response in return? Certainly not -- but that's no reason not to be honest in love, as far as you are concerned.
