Born today, you are not always the most visible or vociferous individual, but your influence is felt wherever you go and in whatever you do. You have the kind of nature that allows you to go where you please, do what you want and mix and mingle with all kinds of people without rocking the boat too much. Those around you always know that your presence, participation and involvement -- whether direct or indirect -- has had a major influence on their lives. You are not always in a social mood, but you will always engage in social affairs that you feel will benefit yourself and others.
You're likely to enjoy great longevity, both personally and professionally. When you begin to score even minor successes, you will certainly be noticed, and you'll be able to parlay those early successes and that early notoriety into something much bigger and more rewarding as time passes. It may not happen quickly, but it will almost certainly happen.
