Although establishing a secure future is especially important to you, from time to time you can make a dramatic move based on a spontaneous decision. You may, however, need to develop self-discipline and overcome a tendency to spring into action without proper planning. You may also have to guard against getting too easily bored or discouraged. Luck, on the other hand, can come out of the blue and take you by surprise. Although you appear to be a traditionalist, you are actually quite progressive, but you need to go through a transformation of values in order to reach true spiritual awareness.

Your Secret Self
Your intellectual brightness may lead you to explore many avenues of expression, but this can also be a problem if you attempt to deal with too many projects at one time. More complex than you seem on the outside, you can be subtle, artistic, and extremely clever. Unfortunately, you also may be liable to a quick temper or impatience, but you may conceal this for your own purposes.
Highly creative, you possess a driving force that spurs you on to constantly seek new achievements. Naturally dramatic, but disliking to take orders from others, you may find it hard to accept criticism. You have a wonderful ability with people and are excellent at making contacts, but can alternate between being warm and responsive and being cold and indifferent. Beneath your external self-confidence you are prone to doubts and fears of inadequacy, so it is important to have an emotional support system of warm and loving friends or family.
Work & Vocation
You are hardworking, and your desire for power motivates you to seek leadership positions.
