Born today, you thrive on creative endeavors of all kinds. You are never more content than when you are tackling something new that requires you to dig deep and explore as fully as possible your rich and varied interests. There may be those who doubt your ability to do well as much as you try to do, but your performance again and again silences the naysayers. You have a knack for jumping into something new and making a success out of it. The reason for this is your innate fearlessness -- something that sets you apart and guarantees that you will live an active and exciting life, no matter where it may take you.
You understand that your word is your bond, that once you have made a promise of any kind, you are bound to keep it no matter what happens. There may be times when circumstances make it impossible for you to deliver, but others understand that this is not your fault -- and you will always make up for it if you can.
