Born today, you are never one to balk at a problem or challenge, but this certainly doesn't mean you are not sensibly fearful of things that could pose a danger to you. The fact is that you actually enjoy facing your fears, and that's what gives you the impetus to move forward when others would hang back, to charge ahead when others would retreat, to embrace what comes when others would do all they can to avoid it.
You are not always as transparent as others think you are, and, indeed, this is often by design. You intentionally keep the truth about the "inner you" -- your ideals, beliefs and other intangible aspects of your personality -- very much to yourself. Indeed, you may at times be mistaken for one who is the perfect opposite of you!
Also born on this date are: James Baldwin, author; Myrna Loy, actress; Mary-Louise Parker, actress; Victoria Jackson, actress and comedian; Peter O'Toole, actor; Margot Robbie, actress.
