Born today, you enjoy being in charge, but you do not always like the attention, notoriety, criticism and lack of privacy that comes with it. You are very much at home in the driver's seat, yet at the same time, you like to be alone to think your own thoughts, devise your own plans, follow your own course and even make your own mistakes without having others scrutinize every little thing you do. You are also fiercely private; what you do at home -- and with whom -- is your own business and nobody else's. Indeed, it is this issue above all others that may well keep you from fulfilling your career destiny.
You have a great deal of good luck, and you are able to turn a little good luck into a lot -- to the extent that your competitors may simply throw up their hands in disgust, certain that they will be unable to keep up with you. You play to win, and like all Pisces natives, you can come up with imaginative tactics that enable you to do so.
