Born today, you have a way of falling into opportunities, just as one might fall into a swimming pool! Still, it matters not how you encounter it, because once you recognize that a new opportunity has presented itself, you're likely to make the most of it, turning it into both a personal and a professional triumph in some way. Once you set your sights on a goal, you're not likely to give up on it for any reason, even if it means making sacrifices and exposing yourself to serious threats as you move toward it. You can be quite slow and methodical when you have to be, but you prefer to let instinct dictate the pace. This means that sometimes you will charge ahead with little regard for safety or propriety, doing what you will simply because you want to. At times, such methods will surely attract criticism from those who do not understand your motives or appreciate your unabashed ways.
You have something of an artistic temperament, in that your feelings and instincts take precedence over intellect or information. While that may work for you as things start out, you do recognize that there are times when you must engage your brain if you're going to reach the top.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Certain key events keep you guessing as they don't seem to add up to anything you can really put your finger on. Keep studying trends.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can expect some things to be much harder than usual, as certain obstacles are more impenetrable than you may have expected.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can get things done through negotiation and persuasion, but trying to force anything outright is not likely to be effective.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- One who has tried your patience in the past is likely to surprise you by falling in line before anyone else. It's a good sign!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Those who need something from you are going to have to wait their turn. You must be first in line to help yourself.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You will want to pay particular attention to the things that you can neither see nor hear. Is this possible? Let someone show you how.
