Born today, you have an air of mystery surrounding you at all times, which makes you quite attractive to both sexes, for varying reasons. Some want to be with you, and others want to be you. If you weren't such a balanced individual, able to sort through complicated influences and navigate tricky emotional currents, this might prove rather dangerous. However, you are not the kind to let such things rule you in any way or dictate your fate; you remain in control of your heart and mind to such a degree that others have little influence over you, if any. Those who want to be you, or be with you, had better hope that you take them in of your own accord, because there's no other way it's going to work out for them!
Just as you can make your way through difficult emotional territory, you can address tricky intellectual puzzles as well, and this makes you an excellent leader who can inspire others and offer up real solutions to their problems. Politics is not out of the question for you -- but only if you can stomach the kind of duplicity that you would encounter in such a life, for it's not your way.
