Born today, you are likely to develop into one of the most determined and competitive individuals born under your sign. When younger, you may have been quite shy and retiring, more than willing to let others have their way even if it meant they were going to walk all over you. With maturity, however, come confidence, know-how and wisdom, and you will develop these in abundance. Once you do, you can step out and assert your independence and autonomy in no uncertain terms -- fighting for yourself at every turn. What is most significant is that you will also learn to fight for others -- those who may be unable to fight for themselves. Indeed, you will derive great happiness from doing your part to aid those who need your help.
You will attract a great many admirers -- and more than a few critics, as well. The critics, for the most part, are those who do not understand your motives, who are not interested in getting to know the real you, and who cannot, for whatever reason, compete with you on the same high level.
