Born today, you are one of the most solid and dependable individuals born under your sign -- or, perhaps, any sign! You are able to think on your feet, and at the same time you are an expert at making plans that stick -- and whether you are following a plan or improvising wildly, you have a knack for involving others in ways that make the best of their talents and promise the greatest possible rewards in the end. You're a mighty presence in any room, and others will flock to wherever you may be -- especially those who do not know you well or who know you by reputation alone. You are the kind of person other people want to be -- which makes you laugh, for you consider yourself quite ordinary. And that, right there, is the source of your greatest charm.
You like to dream big, and you will do everything you can to turn your dreams into reality. But you're not entirely self-concerned! You will set aside your goals for a time in order to help those who need assistance in order to reach their own. You have a great many admirers, and remarkably few detractors.
