Born today, you have tremendous stores of creative energy that can always be counted on to propel you further than you might ever hope to go -- provided you are engaged in an endeavor that truly allows you to make the best use of your copious talents. Apply yourself in such a way, stay focused and always use your skills for good rather than ill, and you're sure to proceed directly to the threshold of success. Once you cross that threshold, you're likely to stay there for quite some time. Indeed, when you find yourself at the top, you'll be reluctant to give up your place for anything!
You keep track of talent, and you like knowing who your closest competitors are -- though you never see competition as something that leaves losers out and favors only the winners. On the contrary, competition, to you, is the very thing that inspires, motives and keeps one going.
