Born today, you are a curious mix of grounded responsibility and mercurial impulses. You have a quicksilver personality that is not likely to be restricted by the rules and regulations governing most other mortals. You know what you want, and you know how to get it -- and you're not likely to let anyone or anything stand in your way for long. You are able to size up a rival or a situation very quickly, and you put what you learn to good use almost immediately, formulating a plan that often guarantees success -- provided, of course, that you put it into motion at the right time. Do so, and you are likely to progress at a startling pace, leaving others in your dust.
Indeed, timing is everything to you; when you are out of sync -- with yourself, others or the world at large -- things can be quite difficult for you. You must always watch what is going on around you, to see how others are responding to the same kinds of influences that affect you most, so that you are able to adjust your own responses accordingly.
