The personality of Hyacinthaceae has problems with relationships in general and more especially with their spouse. They are very gentle and pleasing for others, but have the feeling that their adapting behaviour is not seen and not reciprocated. Then they feel taken for granted, used and even abused.

It is interesting to look at some Genera of Hyacinthaceae, especially Scylla and Charybdis. In Greek mythology the sea monster Charybdis lived under a small rock on one side of a narrow channel, a sea strait. Opposite her was Scylla, another sea monster, that lived inside a much larger rock. Sailors attempting to avoid one of them would come in reach of the other. Scylla and Charybdis therefore means to be presented with two opposite dangers, the task being to find a route that avoids both. Charybdis swallowed a huge amount of water three times a day, before belching it back out again, creating large whirlpools capable of dragging a ship underwater. This gives the idea of having to find ones way between two, Phase 3, bad things, Phase 6.
