There is a conflict between staying at home, supported by their parents, and starting a new relationship. They would like to fall in love, have a relationship and marriage. But they are too shy make that step towards a starting relationship. They feel too dependent on their family, do not have the guts to step out of the family and go out to meet new people. It is too difficult to stand on their own, they feel they need the support of their family and parents.
In the extreme this leads to people who never leave home, they stay with their parents and or siblings and never marry. When they do have a relationship they are dependent on the other person. Their total dependency can scare the other person so much that they end the relationship. Then they are alone again and go back to live with their family.
It is as if only a miracle can make them find a partner to marry, as if they could only get into a relationship by a love potion. In all cases there is a great deal of entanglement. They are interwoven with other people, they do not stand on their own. This gives the sensation of twisting, being curved around each other, holding on to the others.
On the other hand there is a desire to be independent, to be themselves in relationships. When they can do that they feel brighter. That is the well-known amelioration from stretching. With stretching they become bigger and stronger, they do not feel so cramped and folded.
Confusion of identity. Duality.
Fear of not getting married.
Refusal to share its materiality, which is mud and dirt.
