Born today, you are likely to experience so many highs in your life that it may seem impossible to have ever been at a low point at all, but the fact remains that you may spend a great deal of time and energy through the years keeping yourself from succumbing to the blues. You are prone to darker moods that can threaten your happiness, progress and eventual success in life. It is essential that you learn how to combat such moods and focus as much as possible on the good in life: the potential, the yearnings and loves that really define you. Only in that way can you make the most of what you have been endowed with by the stars and take advantage of the opportunities that life offers up, both personally and professionally. You can surely do this, but it will require continual effort. In this, you are no different from anyone else.
You know how to attract others into your orbit with your tremendous personal power -- and once you have them there, you keep them there. You inspire loyalty and hard work, but you also know how to teach others to be at their best in all things. Because excellence is the only real choice for you, it becomes the only real choice for those around you, as well.
