Born today, you are one of the boldest, most forthright, eager and able individuals born under your sign -- or is that just the potential that you display so often? The truth is that while you are quite capable of boasting all these traits, there is no guarantee that you will use them to the best possible advantage, for so much depends on timing, luck and your ability to control your baser impulses when the going gets tough. Timing and luck are what they are, and you simply have to wait to take advantage of them; the matter of self-control, however, is far more urgent. There are times when you may simply "lose it" over something that is actually rather trivial, only to experience grave setbacks as a result. You can avoid such meltdowns, however, simply by disciplining yourself and reining in your emotions.
You are not to be ignored in any situation. When you walk into a room, you will turn heads -- even if you have to do the unthinkable to make it happen. What you must never forget, however, is that even though you may actually be as good as you think you are at this or that, there is always someone better, just waiting to take you down.
