Born today, you are more than willing to put up with hardship, misunderstandings, unfair treatment and a constant onslaught of personal and professional threats if it means you are moving closer to achieving your goals and making a name for yourself in the life and career of your choice. You are tenacious, uncompromising and fiercely competitive, yet at the same time, you can be quite sensitive, loving and generous to those less fortunate than you. You have a certain style that others find charming and almost irresistible. It is no accident that you are often surrounded by admirers; they are drawn to you as a moth to a flame.
You have many clear abilities that could, in time, be used to further a career that might lead you to the threshold of greatness, but it's unlikely that you will have to choose one, for the profession that will bring you the most success and contentment is likely to choose you. Once it does, you'll answer that call with all you've got.
