They are very strong, outgoing people. They have a lot of vitality and can stand a lot, but they hate being limited, kept small by their parents, relatives or spouse.
They want to achieve a lot and discover the world. They have many interests, in science, art, philosophy and spirituality. Often that is not understood by their family, husband or friends. Sometimes they become excluded in school and society because they are so different. Sometimes they limit themselves to get accepted, but limitation makes them sick and depressed. They need expansion very much. Often this works better for them later in life because then they are in more power of themselves and can do what they like. They can come into their strength, be a provider for many people and develop themselves. They can be very good hostesses because they are warm, friendly and communicative. They like connections and the exchange of ideas.
