Born today, you never seem quite sure that you know what it is you are doing -- or what it is you want to be doing, which is a different thing altogether. You live your life as if by chance, letting yourself be gently guided this way and that by the winds of fate, or the stars, or mere accident if that is how you choose to look at it. What you are good at, of course, is taking advantage of opportunities as they arise -- particularly those that come to you out of nowhere, quite by surprise. You are often at your best when you have not been preparing for anything in particular, allowing you to do almost anything that may be required of you.
There are times when your personal affairs may be in something of a shambles, and this is because you tend to neglect those aspects of your life now and then and let your relationships suffer. Fortunately, you have a knack for attracting into your orbit very loyal and steadfast friends who are willing to forgive you for almost anything.
