Born today, you are not yourself an underdog, but you harbor a deep-seated affinity for underdogs everywhere. The more status you attain and the more power you hold, the harder you will work to ensure that those around you are able to fulfill their true potential, both professionally and personally. This is not entirely selfless on your part, however, for you thrive on the kind of recognition and acclaim that these philanthropic efforts win you. Still, it is good of you to do, and those who benefit from your altruism and generosity are unlikely to take it for granted. This is certainly a good thing, for you may well cut off anyone who undervalues your support, and you will not waste another moment trying to help him or her!
You tend to be rather emotional, and even volatile, when it comes to affairs of the heart, but you do your best to keep demonstrative behavior to a minimum. This can be confusing to anyone who tries to engage you on a romantic level. It takes you a long time to open up in this way -- but once you do, it will likely be for life.
