Born today, you are no stranger to waiting for what you think you deserve, and you will go through numerous periods in life that require a kind of superhuman patience that makes you the envy of all who know you. The truth is that you have a sense of destiny, of what you believe you are "meant for" in life, and you further believe that you cannot rush this in any way or bring about its realization any sooner than fate, faith or the stars themselves may allow. In the meantime, while waiting for what is rightfully yours, you will work hard to become the best you can be at whatever endeavor you have chosen as your life's work, to ensure that you are ready to claim your place when the opportunity arises.

It is important that you keep yourself in good shape at all times, getting the rest you need and eating right -- and providing yourself with recreation, too.
