Born today, you are confident that you are one of the most down-to-earth, straightforward individuals born under your sign -- so why do you often feel misunderstood? You are not, in fact, but you think you are, and that's what really counts, isn't it? You hunger for approval, which has both positive and negative effects on your various relationships.
You often wear your heart on your sleeve, and yet at the same time you can be just as often confused by your emotions -- which don't always seem to follow any sort of logic. But isn't that the point of emotions? It is imperative that you learn to say and do only what you mean, so that others are not left wondering about your true motives.
Though you are by nature sweet, nurturing, friendly, generous, and -- as suggested above -- eager to please, the fact is that you also have quite a temper. When you are angry, woe betide anyone who crosses you, for you will lash out in ways that can be dangerous both emotionally and physically. These explosions do not last long, however, and you are quick to make amends if you can.
