Born today, you are not always willing to do the things required of you to reach your goals. Is this a matter of uncertainty or laziness? Absolutely not! In fact, you are one of the most certain, confident, energetic, proactive individuals born under your sign. So what prevents you from doing even the simplest thing to make your life easier or more successful? It's an easy answer -- you are highly principled, never willing to compromise for the sake of utility. You will not do anything you think is wrong or that is in any way contrary to your heart, mind or conscience -- even when you know that it could bring you handsome rewards in the short term. You're not one to sacrifice yourself in such a way.
You are extremely talented in your artistic leanings -- though you do not hold much stock in the notion of the "starving artist." You believe that creative individuals have a responsibility to themselves and to others to get out there and work in order to live. You are certainly no martyr to your craft!
