Born today, you are one of the most down-to-earth, natural, easygoing individuals born under your sign, but that certainly doesn't mean that you're likely to roll over in response to a serious threat or challenge. On the contrary, you can be quite a fighter when you need to be, able and willing to engage any enemy for long periods of time without giving a thought to the possibility of exhaustion. Indeed, stamina is perhaps your greatest single attribute, and it will serve you well in both personal and professional scenarios. There are some who may call you selfish or at least self-absorbed, but they simply don't see that you are constantly reaching out to others to help them in any way you can. You are generous with your time and resources.
Something of a visionary, you are eager to do what has never been done before -- and so you will! Early in life, you no doubt enjoyed opportunities that are rare for someone so young, and they have paved the way to a kind of success that very few enjoy. Others are likely to rally around you in support of any cause you might champion.
