They want to have a happy family together, where everyone is accepted and loved. They have a strong aversion to disharmony and quarrels. They like to do everything for a good atmosphere. They work hard, want a good income, like to do the housework. They have a tendency to give of themselves. It looks sometimes as if they do not have a life for themselves and they do not care about it.
Less obvious is their desire to be seen and respected for what they do. They like to be seen as unique and with special talents and insights. But they often lack the power and self-confidence to bring that side to the fore. They fear being excluded if they show their uniqueness, their desire to radiate. So they just adapt to what the rest of the group expects of them or to what they think others expect of them.
They often come from a broken family. Their parents were not happy together, had a lot of quarrels. They themselves often did not feel loved. It may be that they were adopted. Or they were the result of an adulterous relationship, so that the father could not really accept them as his.
Secrets in the family can give rise to discords, without the people knowing where they come from.
