Born today, you know how to make the most of even the mere suggestion of an opportunity, and you are quick to assess your odds and make adjustments to your strategy and tactics even as you are just starting out. You are quite adept at working with others, and you know how to get what you want from those around you by upping the ante and promising them a great deal in return. The trick, of course, is promising only what you can deliver, and packaging it in such a way that it seems to be a much sweeter deal than it might actually be. This is not deception, but "marketing" -- and you may be considered a self-made expert in putting things in the right box and wrapping it up with the perfect ribbon.
Your talents are easily recognizable, and it is likely that you will win the attention and praise of some important people at an early age. Take care, however! You must never let the pace of your professional life exceed your control; you always want to be the one in charge of your destiny!

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13
