The old keynote is the strong desire for coffee. And it is not only a desire, it also gives an amelioration. It helps them to go on and not be bothered by setbacks, problems, hindrances and weakness. They want to keep up their appearance and hate showing their weakness. Their image must be as if in control. But there is a naïve quality to it. They want to stay fresh and cheerful, helpful and caring. They continue doing this even in situations when they are used and abused. Other can easily lean on them and drain their energy. In the end they feel weak and empty, drained and squeezed. It feels as if others or they themselves have squeezed all the energy out of them, like a squeezed orange.
