Your Secret Self
A creative mentality allows you to combine wit with insight, often reflecting people’s characteristics back to them in a most subtle yet challenging way. An interest in human nature generally can take you beyond business and sociability to a humanitarian desire to do something meaningful. This may involve fighting for causes, freedom, or your dream, but it will stop you from becoming restless and give you greater satisfaction. Possible blocks to this process may involve a lack of faith in your own abilities or indecision as to your choices. This doubt may result in your taking a secondary role rather than making full use of the power available to you. Since you respond well to encouragement, you may receive motivation from reading about the lives of those you admire and respect; remember that every step you take toward fulfilling your own dreams also works to inspire others. Give others inspiration rather than unwelcome criticism.

In business, this insight will enable you to work well with people and intuit the outcome of financial propositions.

Alternatively, you may use these gifts in the therapeutic world, where you can also exercise your natural humanitarianism. Your keen intellect and sense of the dramatic is likely to draw you to a career on the stage, and since you are also likely to be blessed with an exceptional voice, this could serve you well as a singer or politician. A career in music or teaching could also make good use of your talents. Having a strong sense of independence and not liking to take orders may encourage you to work for yourself.
