Born today, you are always filled with ideas -- ideas about the world and the people in it, ideas about the cosmos, ideas about metaphysical theory and phenomena, and ideas about what to have for lunch or dinner. You were born to put your brain to work, and by doing so, you will certainly ponder all manner of issues throughout your lifetime, from the most esoteric and philosophical to the more practical and routine.
Also born on this date are: Jason Bateman, actor; LL Cool J, actor and rapper; Faye Dunaway, actress; Jack Jones, singer; Andy Rooney, author, commentator and humorist; William Bendix, actor; Hal Roach, filmmaker; Albert Schweitzer, physician and humanitarian.
You enjoy, and are very good at, doing old things in new ways, and you always bring your own personal style to whatever task you are tackling at the moment. You don't like to be watched while working; you like to be left alone to do things as you will, and when you do have an audience, you can become quite defensive, often expecting criticism where there will be none. You can get over this.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
