Born today, you have every reason to think that life, in all its wonder and mystery, will work out to your liking. You have been endowed with tremendous talent, and you are likely to be granted numerous opportunities to explore and develop that talent to the fullest. You know what is most important in life -- at least for yourself. What you must do, therefore, is live your life in a straightforward, organic fashion, without trying to be something you are not; do that, and the world can absolutely be your oyster! You may discover that it is sometimes difficult to balance your emotional needs with your professional aspirations, but if you give everything the time and consideration it deserves, you should remain healthy and prevail.
Though you are usually soft-spoken, certain things can get a rise out of you, prompting you to raise your voice, stamp your feet and indulge in a good old-fashioned rant or tantrum. When this happens, others had best get out of your way -- quickly!
