Although inspiration can take you to great heights, mental discipline is essential in order to avoid plummeting to equally great lows. The combination of your universal understanding and natural mystical potential, however, can be developed to bring much wisdom into your life and the lives of others.
Personal magnetism and the need for constant variety suggest that you will make many contacts and experience different circumstances in your life, with a possibility of involvements abroad.
