Born today, you are not always on your best behavior, and you don't always subscribe to the kinds of rules, regulations and expectations that guide others as they make their way in the world. You can be counted on to do and say precisely what you want at any given moment, even to the extent that you may turn your allies against you -- at least for a time. What others might not realize, however, is this behavior is often calculated to yield certain results.
You can be trusted with a great deal of responsibility, and when you give someone your word, he or she can rely on it through thick and thin. It will surprise no one when you rise to the top of your given profession and do much to secure lasting success for yourself and your friends and partners.
