Cucurbitaceae is the main family in the Order Cucurbitales.
In the Plant theory it is placed in Subphase 5.
The chlorine element of Phase 7 can be seen in the fear of losing family and friends, the holding onto the family.
The fluorine element is reflected in the fear of poverty, the desire to have a lot of money and the gambling with money to get more.
The Nitrogen element of Subphase 5 exaggerates the desire to make money and the fear of poverty. The combination of Nitrogen and Chlorine is the expansion of water, as in the fruits of this family, huge fruit with enormous amounts of fluids, the largest fruits of the Plant kingdom. Some of the fruits are even explosive, like Ecballium elaterium.
Work, money, business
They have a strong drive to make money, to have a good business that earns a lot. They have a big fear of poverty. This gets exaggerated once they have lost money or their business has gone bankrupt. It can happen when they have been cheated in business and money is stolen from them. They always have a fear they will not have enough, that it is not enough for the future or for their pension.
They can work very hard to get things done, to make their business flourish. They feel that one has to attend the business continuously in order to make it flourish. They can also let others work hard for them, making money by having employees work for them. They can also make big investments to make more money. They can gamble on the stock market for bigger profits. Sometimes it can lead to a kind of gambling and they can lose a lot of money.
They try to insure their possessions in all possible ways.
They often work so hard to be able to relax en enjoy later in life, to be able to enjoy their wealth.
They work hard for their family, making enough money to taking care of their children and family. Often they have a kind of family business, where many members of the family work together for the family income and wealth. The father, the leader of the group or family, can be quite domineering, expecting everyone to participate in the family business. They prefer to stay at home, their safe port. They only travel for business. Their home is their castle, their safe investment for the future and for the family.
They can have the wish to invest in their children. Since they had little education or opportunities in life they want their children to do better. They also hope that their children will give them a good life in return later in life, during old age. They can be very disappointed when that do not happen.
