Rosaceae is the first diverging lineage of the Rosales in the Apg3 classification.
In the Plant theory Rosaceae are in Subphase 1.
The Sulphur quality of Phase 6 is strong. They have an issue with love and marriage. But it is not love alone, it also has to do with building a family, having to work for an income to feed and raise the children. It gives a combination of having to be a good lover and spouse and having to be a mate, working together.
They also have a naïve idea about love. They are a bit childish, thinking that when someone loves them they will do everything for them all the time. They expect too much and can be quite demanding. The opposite can also happen, that they give too much with the idea that they have to give when they love.
The basic theme is that of love between man and wife, between love partners. The heart is symbolic of love and that is where they often have problems. They talk often about their heart as in a "broken heart". The rose is another symbol of love, romantic love. They often develop ailments from a disappointed love, a loved one who was not in love with them and the like. They get the idea that they cannot be loved, or even deeper, that they are not loveable at all.
They have the tendency to idealise love. They can be very romantic, waiting for the ideal love, the "prince on the white horse". Brings forth a sense of gentleness toward the self and others. Helps to release memories of events in life's journey that were not gentle.
Giving in love
Once they are in a love relationship, they have the tendency to give all they have. They believe that one has to give to their loved one. They do so, but so much that they do not see that it's out of balance. They are very sweet for their loved ones, as sweet as a peach or cherry. They are often very cheerful in order to bring happiness.
They tend to give more than they get back. They live for their love to such a degree that there's no living space for them, no air for them to breathe. The air is there but they cannot reach it because they give of themselves too much. In the end they feel that they are empty, that they have given all in vain and nothing comes back. Then they become irritable, making nasty remarks, or express their irritation constantly. They seem to have thorns.
Love as such in the world we live in and how to establish a family that survives.
