Born today, you are unlikely to discover your true destiny at an early age. In fact, your exploratory wanderings may well lead you far and wide while you are young, introducing you to all manner of endeavors, professional and otherwise, as well as the people who regularly engage in them. You are never likely to abandon your native curiosity, even after you do find your niche, and you will enjoy learning about the world and all it has to offer even when you are quite old. Indeed, you are often more interested in the lessons you may learn through a given project than in the success it may bring you -- for success is fleeting, while a lesson truly learned is remembered forever.
You can expect to go through many alternating periods of high productivity and low output. When you are not working at peak capacity, you may actually become quite dissatisfied with yourself and the world around you. You must never let this inclination get the better of you, however: The sun will surely rise tomorrow!
