Born today, you are no stranger to controversy, and you may feel that it is in the stars for you to be at the center of pivotal events again and again throughout your lifetime. This may well be the case, so what you must learn to do with your life is to control those events rather than be a victim of circumstance. The more you can take charge of what happens to you and around you, the more you can pursue a course in life that gives you what you want, both in material rewards and in overall personal satisfaction. Relinquish control or, worse, fail to claim it in the first place, and you're likely to see other people succeed in your stead, making your dreams become their reality -- and that is not an acceptable outcome!
You may have harbored certain insecurities when you were young that prove difficult to shake as you grow older, but shake them you must if you are going to do the things you have set out to do. You have a great deal of confidence, but at times, quite paradoxically, you are unable to maintain the healthiest self-image -- and this conflict may cause you hardship.
