Born today, you are likely to be buffeted by the winds of change and the mere chanciness of life, again and again, until you learn the art of anticipating and acting in concert with the world around you. As a youth, you may simply be too reactive and combative for your own good. As you age, you will discover that there are times when bending just a little will allow you to weather what comes in a much healthier way than if you simply stand your ground and take the brunt of it. You will also, as you put years under your belt and wisdom in your head, learn to read the signs that life puts before you. This will enable you to see what's ahead before it gets to you, allowing you to react in the best possible way.
You know how to work hard and play hard, and sometimes you enjoy yourself most when you are doing both at the same time. Indeed, you often believe that the harder you work, the more fun you will have, and you prove it daily. You know how to commit fully to anything you choose to do.
