Born today, you are something of an adventurer, but you are never reckless or foolhardy in your approach. Rather, you take the time to learn all you can about what may lie ahead, and you do everything you can to prepare yourself physically, mentally and emotionally for the challenges that you will likely face. You understand that your way of life is not always easy and that you will incur some serious risk at times, but you are confident that what you are after in the long run is surely worth that risk. And what is it that you are after? Because it is so important to you to uphold your ideals, you seek accomplishment that reflects those ideals -- and succeeding at that can be very difficult!
You are likely to be widely admired, but you maintain a realistic view of yourself and your abilities. You're not the kind to blow your own horn; indeed, your first instinct when faced with praise from others is to turn away from it. Modesty comes naturally to you -- sharply contrasting with your abilities and accomplishments in the eyes of others.
