Born today, you are always interested in getting yourself and your endeavors to the next level, and you will do anything and everything to ensure that progress is steady and uninterrupted, day after day. You are quite adept at handling the big things that come up, whether expected or unexpected. You do not shirk responsibilities, nor do you fear any kind of emotions, issues, deadlines, chores, rivals or competitors. Instead, you look forward to doing all you can to win the day and come out ahead. You will not, however, stoop to abusing others for personal gain. You insist that things be done in a fair and upright manner -- in this, you are a classic Virgo native. You know how to work a problem in such a way that your strengths are brought to bear and your weaknesses minimized. You are confident and eager, ambitious and enthusiastic.
You always have the guts to stand up against any kind of opposition or criticism, and you are careful to determine whether such things are worthy of any kind of response. The truth is that you do not fear what people say -- for that is nothing more than words that can be answered with confidence in one's own methods and beliefs.
