They have a problem with their mother. She is absent, or too occupied with work, household, friends, husband or her own diseases and problems. She can be an alcoholic. She has too little time to give love, caresses, attention, talks, hugs or protection. Their desire to feel their mother, touch her, feel her heart beat is not fulfilled. This can give them a very lonely feeling, a deep inner sadness which is there in the background, a feeling as if they could cry all the time.
On the other hand; their mother is too present, domineering, pushing them in the direction she thinks is necessary.

With their expansive nature they can easily dominate others. This can create hatred, envy and jealousy in others; who can then be out for revenge. This can come to them as a surprise because in principle they have good intentions. They can be attacked, stabbed, experience violence, cruelty, inhumanity, nastiness, and uncivilised criminal actions. They can be attacked because they did something bad to a group of people, as a kind of punishment, honour and revenge. Love relationships can be so passionate that a betrayal leads to violence.
