Born today, you will play both leading and supporting roles throughout your lifetime, often both at the same time. This happens naturally as you work hard to further your agenda and those of good friends, co-workers and partners to whom you have pledged loyalty and support. You derive almost as much pleasure from seeing others succeed as from your own success, for you understand that your contributions are essential to what they have achieved. You don't have to receive credit for what you do; your confidence serves you well in this regard, and provides the fulfillment that external praise and recognition otherwise would. You often do your best work out of the public eye, in the privacy of your "inner sanctum" -- be it an office, home or a secret getaway.
You are keenly interested in history and heritage, and in how that which has gone before affects you and the world around you on a daily basis. You are never one to assume that you know enough; you feel compelled to study and explore as much as possible, to augment your personal store of knowledge and experience.
