Born today, you are not one to give up for any reason. This is especially true when you are confident that your way is the right way, that you are onto something valuable, important and lasting, or when you feel yourself rising to an occasion that may be quite rare, never to be enjoyed again. In short, you thrive on doing that which is rarely done and which, once done, may perhaps never be able to be repeated. There is a conflict within you, however: the need to accomplish, which brings its own inner rewards, versus the need to be noticed and accepted, which ultimately brings you the greatest outward enjoyment.
When it comes to love, you may also be quite conflicted. The love of what you do is likely to collide quite often with your love for another person. Both endeavor and individual will demand of you much, and you may never be able to give each what it needs of you at any one time. Compromise, then, will be the name of the game.
