Born today, you are a strong, confident, forthright individual who is able to make many friends and navigate the difficult realm of rivalry and competition with a positive outlook, good spirits and a desire for fairness and parity. Though you have the strength and personal force required to get your way even when others stand against you, you prefer to discuss matters openly, to consider options and to negotiate with others in order for everyone to get what they want -- including you. You are not one to insist that you come out on top and others remain at the bottom; on the contrary, if it is possible for others to ascend the ladder of success with you, all the better! You are both traditional and progressive; you combine the best of old-school thinking with cutting-edge awareness and skill.
You can be so private in your personal affairs that others know little or nothing about you outside of your work or public life. Indeed, you will work tirelessly to protect your privacy and the privacy of family members. What you do behind closed doors is nobody's business, and you will see to it that it stays that way!
