Born today, you are a clever, quick-witted, highly resourceful individual, and you are determined to make the most of your talents as you work for your advancement and for the good of others. You are a good planner, and you know how to set your plans in motion in a timely, efficient manner. Your effectiveness is augmented by your flexibility and your ability to see change coming, which allow you to react appropriately. You don't ever feel the need to announce your intentions; you trust that your actions will speak for you and be understood by all who observe them. There may be times when you overestimate how well others know you, and when you are misunderstood in some way, it does tend to cause you a good deal of frustration.
Though you seem to do most things by the book, you are able to improvise, change the rules and give new strategies and tactics a try -- though you are always careful to anticipate, as best you can, all possible outcomes. You don't like surprises, especially when you have much on the line.
