Born today, you are one of the most powerful people born under your sign, and the heat from the blazing furnace of your soul is sure to be felt by everyone with whom you come in contact on a daily basis, personally and professionally. Your passions are very near the surface; you never experience anything without experiencing it 100 percent, with your emotions fully engaged. Your passions are stirred by even the minutest stimulus, and it is impossible for you to go through your day without running the gamut from love to hate, joy to anger. Fortunately, you know how to channel all that feeling into endeavors that are wholly worthwhile; this can bring you tremendous success and inspire others in the process. You can ultimately be very important and do very important things!
You are no stranger to adversity, and you are adept at finding alternative ways of doing things in order to get around obstacles or challenges that threaten to derail you completely. You respond with tremendous energy and resolve to anyone who says you cannot do something -- the word "no" means "yes" to you more often than not!
