Born today, you are perhaps one of the most loyal, stalwart, faithful and patient individuals born under your sign. You can be counted on to take the high road in almost every conceivable situation. When it comes to conflict, you know better than most how to resolve it, and the nastier it may get, the more likely you are to come up with an unusual, lasting solution for which you are much appreciated and long remembered. You are trusted and trusting. You enjoy the company of others, and your company is much sought after. You know how to think about a problem and devise a solution, and you know how to take appropriate action when the time comes. Indeed, you sometimes seem to be all things to all people.
You are not all sweetness and light, however! The truth is, you do have a temper -- and it is a trait that you take great pains to control, for you know that if it gains control of you, it is likely to wreak havoc on your life and the lives of those closest to you. You must avoid jealousy above all else.
