Born today, you know how to make the best of an unfortunate situation. You can always be counted on to pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start over again when you have the opportunity to do so, but with more knowledge and experience that can help you travel swiftly down the road to success. You understand that life is a series of trial-and-error opportunities, and that nothing is as good the first time as it can eventually be with a little practice. You are always willing to pay your dues and put in the time you need to become an expert at something. You will work hard, confident that the effort will pay off eventually -- allowing you to play hard, too! You know how to turn failure into success.
You may sometimes be thought to have a more retiring nature, but this certainly doesn't last for long! It results, of course, from your occasional forays into quiet intensity -- but soon your true, colorful self resurfaces, making misidentification all but impossible.
