Born today, you are always on the lookout for that one perfect opportunity -- one that provides you with the chance to shine, to challenge yourself and to interact with like-minded individuals who share your talents and outlook, all so you can do what you feel you were meant to do with your life. Of course, such opportunities are few and far between, but you understand that the mere search itself can give you much of what you want, and most of what you feel you deserve. You have a healthy estimation of your own talents, and if you work to hone them rather than simply relying on confidence alone, you are bound to achieve the loftiest of goals.
You are never one to separate yourself from others, particularly when it comes to those who are less fortunate than yourself. You feel that life is a gift, and you want to share it with everyone -- especially those who look up to you for whatever reason. You are always generous with your time and attention.
