Born today, you are a singularly creative individual with tremendous drive and vision and the ability to turn the mere shell of an idea into something three-dimensional and complex. You enjoy all manner of endeavors, from the private to the very public, from solo work to group efforts, from the sublime to the ridiculous. It's engagement and involvement that you are after, and as long as you feel you are being afforded the opportunity to express yourself and work to peak capacity, then you will be happy. You are not after notoriety, fame, fortune or praise; you are after something that comes only from doing a thing that feels right over the long haul. You are after an inner contentment that no one will ever be able to take from you -- and you may have it.
You see attention as a means to an end, and you will endure it as long as it pays off for you. You are perfectly willing to pay a high price for the things you want, but the thing you most want, above all else, is something that you may find for free, and that is a happy, contented, long-term love. It's yours to find -- and to enjoy.
