It would be beneficial for you to keep physically active and disperse the enormous amount of restlessness within you. You are naturally assertive and spirited, easily fighting for the things that you believe in or for others that are being taken advantage of. However, you must develop self-restraint if you are to reach your full potential. Competition spurs you on and you are driven to beat out all others in the game of your choosing or even just in general. Sometimes attracting with honey is far more conducive to accomplishing your goals than using brute force; be more diplomatic when interacting with people. You work diligently, bravely, and energetically. Try to be more lenient on yourself and others when something goes array as no one is perfect, not even you. Sometimes you have built up such a name for yourself that you do a complete turn-around and laze about, expecting your previous work will tide you over.

Your general lack of patience and constant rushing about makes you susceptible to accidental injuries, particularly involving heat or sharp objects. You can be reckless because you do not plan your actions ahead. You have a negative reaction to any sort of perceived restriction on you and can be a bit of a rule-breaker. As a leader, it is imperative that you curb your dominance or you will be seen as a tyrannical dictator rather than a leader.

This placement can either muddle things up or pull forth a magnetic quality, contingent upon the rest of your horoscope. There is a battle going on inside, the conformist versus the rebel, traditionalist versus the progressive, the realist versus the dreamer, conventional versus the alternative. Pressure builds up while you are fighting within, this then that then back again.

Allow yourself the time needed as you can become impatient and burst emotionally during stressful moments, only to feel regretful once your temper calms down. It is important that you develop a way to sooth yourself during these moments as they may cause you to act rashly. Much of your outrage is due to your tendency to keep your emotions bottled up until you cannot control them any further, and then you erupt. You need to learn how to express these feelings in more positive ways before they reach an intolerable level.

You would make an excellent investigator as you are naturally gifted in the field. Psychological evaluation is another area that you are talented in and there is a strong interest in topics related to the afterlife and mystical studies.

The mystical realm tends to fascinate you though you must be mindful not to become engrossed in negative spiritual endeavours such as calling on dark spirits, hypnosis, and the like, as they will bring you trouble.
Self-restraint is not your strong point and you have a difficult time saying no to temptations. You are likely to have issues with substance abuse at some point in your life, though you need to curb these cravings as they will only bring you grief. You can be a bit delusional and would do well to develop some practicality; you need to keep your feet on the ground if you are to accomplish anything.

However, your sensitive emotions can be easily abused by those who may play the victim just to take advantage of your kindness. These situations have the potential to drag you down drastically.

However, you are not one to listen when others try to advise you; you feel you must go through the situation yourself to comprehend it fully and then come to your own conclusions and observations, even if this can be destructive at times. Previous life karma is good and you have been able to keep your temper and impulses relatively balanced. Continue on the path you have started in your past; your intuitive nature serves you well.

Though you work to create change, you are keen to observe when the price of change may be too high.

Frequently things seem like a struggle to you and this gives way to a pessimistic view leading you to sometimes struggle with depression. Fortunately, you are very dutiful and a hard worker which allows you to power through whatever obstacle that comes your way. There is a tendency to greater luck in the later stages of life versus the earlier ones, therefore keep moving forward as your hard work will eventually pay off.
You possess an eccentric mind with an aptitude for thinking outside-the-box. This coupled with a strong intuition and will-power allows you to lead others into interesting, original endeavours. It is beneficial for you to listen to and develop your intuition as yours may be more accurate than most. You like to find fresh and often unusual ways of doing things. There is never a dull moment with you around and this stimulating personality attracts others to you. Unfortunately, your unique individuality may cause you to feel discontent and lonely at times; it is not often easy to be ahead of your time. Its a good thing that you enjoy your freedom and have an independent nature. However, at times you will find yourself a bit anxious and high-strung, with a high degree of mental activity that can cause you to neglect your physical state.
The work environment you find yourself in can have a large impact on your health and well-being. You require work conditions to be free of conflict and generally enjoyable, as you are extremely sensitive to the energy around you. You can soak up negativity if it is present and this will impact your health a great deal, whether the ailments are real or imagined. Alternative medicine may prove more beneficial to you than conservative methods. Be careful about colleagues harbouring hidden intentions; they may not be as wholesome as they seem. It is likely that you will expend too much of yourself for your job; try not to become a victim.
You are particularly talented in money matters with astute observations, tolerance, and perseverance in this area. Finding yourself with an unusual need for material gains, you must be careful not to treat those close to you as objects as well. It may be necessary for you to learn to remove yourself from the grasp your possessions have on you and try to readily share what you acquire instead. There is a tendency with this placement for your assets to be under tight control, whether this be of your own accord or from an outside source. Behaving honourably in your financial dealings will be crucial.
