Born today, you always think that you are on the verge of the next big thing -- and indeed, you may well be! You do have grand notions and a way of seeing the world that makes room for all types of people and all the things they may believe, but you are always on the lookout for something better than what others are willing to settle for. You are a natural born student, and your ability to examine yourself, those around you and the world at large in a critical fashion allows you to shape and reshape your thinking again and again. Anyone who expects you to be entirely consistent in all things is bound to be surprised, for you are constantly evolving -- and your views can differ greatly from one phase to another.
You are prone to highly emotional responses to what happens to you in life, so you are capable of experiencing the highest highs and the lowest lows. You will learn to rely on a few close friends and loved ones to keep you on an even keel. When depression strikes, your best weapon against it is hard work.
