You are also committed, protective, nurturing, domestic, community conscious and family oriented. You are a person who likes to offere help and comfort to those in need. You have a natural penchant for working with the old, the young, the sick, or the underprivileged. Although you may have considerable creative and artistic talents, you will probably devote yourself to an occupation that shows concern for the betterment of the community.
You are a sympathetic and kind person, generous with personal and material resources. You have the capacity for being a great nuturer, or parent, as you enjoy sharing your warmth with others. Wisdom, balance, and understanding are the cornerstones of your life, and these define your approach to life in general. Your extraordinary wisdom and the ability to understand the problems of others stems from an early age. This allows you to easily span the generation gap and assume an important role in life early on.
You have the innate talent to uplift the spirit of others, especially during hard times. You may do this through service and others accomplish this through art, music, or writing. You’re destiny is often to restore faith in hearts that are broken.
You are open and honest with all relationships, but most of all, you enjoy being in a meaningful relationship with someone you care about, and the rest of your life revolves around this. A caretaker type, you are apt to attract partners who are somewhat weaker and more needy than yourself; someone you can care for and protect. In these relationships, there must be complete harmony. You don’t function well in stressful relationships that become a challenge, and therefore, hard for you to control. It is the same with friends, you are loyal and trustworthy.
But there is a tendency for you to become dominating and controlling. You can also be too exacting and demanding of yourself and rigid, to the point of stubborness. In this regard, you may at times sacrifice yourself (or your loved ones) for the welfare of others and even have difficulty distinguishing helping from interfering. It’s also likely that you worry way too much.
However, you have a vulnerable side as well. You are your own critic that can sometimes be severe which constantly tells you that you are not good enough. The key is to be as loving, caring and respectful of yourself as you are too others.
