Born today, you are easy to identify in a crowd, as you carry yourself in such a way and emit such unique energy, that you are virtually unmistakable, no matter what the situation or prevailing circumstances might be. You are an upstanding, honest and hardworking individual who does not suffer fools. Indeed, one of your lifetime goals is to reduce the incidences of foolishness in your corner of the world.
You have a quick mind and the ability to put two and two together in all kinds of ways that sometimes adds up to four. There are times, however, when something you are working on is worth far more than the sum of its parts. You know how to take something routine and make it quite extraordinary.
Also born on this date are: Mariska Hargitay, actress; Ernie Kovacs, TV comedian, writer and actor; Richard Dean Anderson, actor; John Hancock, patriot and founding father; Edouard Manet, painter; Chita Rivera, actress.
