This success can be quite long-lasting if you are able to avoid the pitfalls that commonly present themselves to those of your ilk. If you come into your own later in life, you may not enjoy such a lengthy reign, but you will nevertheless enjoy it fully -- if for no other reason than you understand just how long it took to find it! You take very little for granted, and you are determined to show those around you just how splendid life can be.
You can be highly social or quite withdrawn, depending on how you react emotionally to what is going on in your life. You can also startle others with the force of your personality and your ability to channel that force into your personal and professional endeavors.
