Born today, you are one of the most straightforward, no-nonsense individuals born under your sign. You also have a great deal of talent, and these traits are likely to give you a great advantage in almost all of life's most important and meaningful endeavors. Of course, "important" and "meaningful" are, in the main, what you make them -- and you know how to do just that! Even from an early age you will do things in a way that ups the ante and maximizes your potential rewards, and as you reach your professional maturity you are likely to score a kind of success that makes you the envy of other successful people. You aren't the kind to boast or to lord it over others; you go about your business in a rather quiet manner, and sometimes you don't even attract attention doing what you do. In the end, however, you are always going to win recognition and admiration for your accomplishments.
There is much about yourself that you try to keep hidden from view. When it comes to your personal affairs, you insist that others respect your privacy, especially when and if your work brings you into the public eye in any way. You aren't one to sacrifice privacy for success! You can be quite emotional, but not everyone knows this, of course.
