At the exact minute of your birth, the astrological sign that is rising on the eastern horizon is designated the Ascendant or Rising Sign. The Ascendant is how you dawn on the world, how you present yourself to others. If someone were to guess your astrological sun sign, they would guess it based on what you show the world, which is your rising sign. Its the characteristics and personality traits that you put forth for all to see. Its the stained glass window that you project outward for the rest of your chart to flow through.
Those with their rising in the sign of Virgo are typically realistic, critical, systematic, detail-oriented, selective, analytical, timid, fussy, thoughtful, and particular. You have a clever, resourceful mind and acquiring new information and using it in a practical way are significant to you. At times you can be a bit of a perfectionist, making it difficult for others to live up to your high expectations. However, you are excellent at discovering the flaw in every circumstance and this can be a useful skill if you know how to utilise it correctly. Be mindful that you do not become fault-finding in your personal relationships, as this can turn a pleasant pairing ugly fast. These high standards are not only directed at outer situations but you can be rather critical of yourself as well; keep an eye on the negativity you produce. Over-analysing can lead to excessive worrying over minute details that are insignificant. This sort of tension can lead to physical illness if not tempered. It would be beneficial to you to find a way to absorb what happens while not becoming bitter or spiteful, regretting your past decisions or resenting others for their actions. There may be deeper issues at work in regards to feeling as though you are somehow not good enough which leads to negative thinking. You are likely to age very well. Anxiety and a nervous tension can cause you to stay slim. Decisive action and certainty may elude you at times. You must learn to aid and serve others as this is your life lesson. Virgo is ruled by Mercury and therefore its placement in your chart will be significant.
Shhh! Capricorn prefers to plan sexual encounters and then proceed according to plan. A seduction feels like cooperation, foreplay like a warm-up, and intercourse feels like work. Read all about Capricorn sexuality here.
If the planets symbolize the forces and energies that happen in different situations, then the aspects between the planets symbolize how these energies work together and integrate with each other. There are challenging and easy aspects between the planets and it is up to the individual to choose how they are going to utilize the aspect energies for a positive outcome. The aspects between planets are said to speak to each other. Depending on which planets are aspecting each other and the rest of the natal chart, will determine which planet is dominate and which is not in the aspect between them. But ultimately it is up to the individual to decide how they are going to use the aspects of planets in their chart with their free will, in a meaningful and productive way.
You can be unwilling to entertain another persons point of view, preferring to hold tight to your own. Objectivity may also be difficult for you due to self-centredness. You enjoy communicating to others about all the things you love, think, or feel but are disinterested in hearing about other people. You are witty, with a sharp mind and a hunger for knowledge and new stimulation. If you are unable to experience novel situations, you become disinterested in your life; consistent mental stimulus is imperative for you. You are well able to convey your views and can be adept at persuading others, though you need to apply a greater focus while listening to people. Often you are trying to figure out what your next point in the conversation will be and miss out on what was said. You run on a high voltage and may develop little nervous habits. Finding an outlet for your anxiety by use of your hands may alleviate this nervous energy. In addition, try to focus more on what other people are contributing to the situation rather than being immersed in your own talents.
You are highly responsive, both physically and mentally, to the environment that you find yourself in. Naturally you are full of energy and feel a need to be always active. Quickly disinterested, you require a good deal of mental stimulation to keep your mind busy, lending to your preference towards being a part of many endeavours all at once. You are self-sufficient, unique, inventive, and a revolutionary thinker who is always open to new ideas. In fact, finding fresh ways of doing things or progressive philosophies are a valuable part of life for you and you strive to inspire others to engage in these with you. Your gut intuition is unusually strong and accurate. However, you require complete freedom to be able to use this intuition in whatever way feels right to you, reacting to situations without being hindered by other obligations. Careers that entail the same, monotonous work day in and day out are not for you and you would do best with work that uses your superb ability to adapt to changing circumstances and allows you some room for creativity. You would never abide by others demanding that you do something and telling you in what way you must execute your task. It is important to you to discover things for yourself, in your own time. Your thinking does not follow the typical step-by-step process that most others adhere to. Instead, your thinking is more abstract and conclusions tend to just find their way into your mind seemingly from thin air, though this is just your intuition working its magic and providing you with unparalleled insight. Scientific and technological subject appeal to you and you are usually one of the first to try out new gadgets or concepts. Astrological topics and anything related to supernatural phenomena will also hold your attention. You are an articulate communicator, in both the written and spoken word, which readily exchanges fresh and unconventional information with other people.
It would be beneficial for you to develop tolerance and patience when you encounter opposing opinions or views from others. People may find you egotistical and self-absorbed. The key to attracting others is to practice being humble instead. You have an instinctual knowledge of what needs to be done and how to go about it, however you can often be unaware of the amount of sacrifice you may be requiring from other people or what they may require. You may arrogantly go about behaving as though you can do no wrong, and this causes tension for others when they pick up on this aura; no one is infallible. Keep yourself open to what other people bring to the table; show them that their ideas are welcome. Do not give way to idealistic fantasy and try to be accepting of peoples beliefs. Use your ability to lead others to their benefit rather than for your own self-indulgent needs.
There is potential for transformation and a rebirth of sorts if you are willing to put forth effort. Change is a large theme in your life and is there to help you develop and grow. You have excellent self-restraint and dedication during trying periods. Intuitively you are aware that these periods will not go on forever and that if you just allow things to flow where they may, in time the situation will improve naturally. You may be involved with the public somehow as your drive seems to seek this situation out; you feel that somehow this is position is fated. Emotionally you are able to restrict your feelings as well as mentally guide your thinking so as to not become wrapped up in overly intense displays. Others look to you as a leader for you are controlled, disciplined, truthful, sensible, and dependable, with a good head on your shoulders. There is an innate understanding that you must work hard for the merits you attain and this allows you to display a good deal of patience when rising in achievement. It may be important for you to take time for yourself to recover your energies, as you can sometimes feel communication with others is puzzling or frightening somehow. Traditional education methods may not suit you; you prefer to be able to absorb knowledge and wisdom through experience.
You are drawn to all things unconventional, untraditional, eccentric, or just plain odd. The old-fashioned way of doing things is not for you and you will not pay old traditions any mind when you are making your decisions. Searching for new experiences, you are always ready and willing to go off on a random adventure. You enjoy keeping up to date with all of the newest technology and often are the first to have the latest gadgets and gizmos. You are very independent and need a great deal of space to venture forward into the world. Progressive and innovative, you strive for change and reform of some sort. You think outside the box and can be madly brilliant with finding creative answers to whatever problem you are presented with. Artistic and highly intuitive, you must find an outlet to express these gifts. You are able to remove yourself from the lower impulses of human nature and call on your more enlightened self for guidance and purpose. Many times situations sort of just happen to you, spontaneously and seemingly at random; you can never quite know what to expect in your life. Some unseen force seems to be protecting you as you can get big breaks just when you felt time were running out.
You are brave, self-confident, full of energy, driven, and optimistic. Competing with others is enjoyable for you and you tend to win using your confidence and intuition. Your strong will has allowed you to learn self-discipline, creating a force that permits you to rise to truly powerful positions. Your physical health is amazing as you heal easily and have endless amounts of energy. However, it is important that you are able to keep active physically or this immense energy of yours will turn destructive. Every effort is made on your part to achieve success in an honourable fashion. You are likely to be a good leader and have a talent for administrating. Hard-working, courageous, and assertive, you gain the admiration of others and will champion for them if they are being unjustly treated.
You are drawn to lifes many mysteries and enjoy uncovering hidden truths, even if there are some risks involved in doing so. You feel happiest when in the midst of an emotionally intense situation and therefore have no trouble handling circumstances where others are emoting dramatically, instead you dig to the heart of the issue and help to remedy the problem. Instinctively you understand that in order to be truly close to someone, emotions must be brought to the surface, no holds barred, and you strive to accomplish this intimate connection. You are not one to toy with someones feelings. Subjects pertaining to religion, science, mythical or mystical studies, sexuality, psychological evaluation, fiction based on scientific evidence, dying, the afterlife, or curing ailments are all fascinating for you. Your strong intuition helps you to truly comprehend what other people are feeling and going through. Gaining knowledge is pleasurable to you and you soak up new data like a sponge. Your feelings run much deeper than what you express to others. You work diligently and are dedicated to doing your job, even when much energy and will are required. Somehow you have a knack for figuring out just what the main issue is in any challenge and how to work through it. Your analytical mind would do well in the field of psychology or therapy, as you do well dissecting peoples thoughts and feelings accurately. Your will-power is exceptionally strong and you do not easily give up.
You are likely to be emotionally underdeveloped. Opening up to others is not easy for you due to your being unable to move past previous hurts, always fearful that the same will happen once more. You keep both your money and your feelings to yourself. Innately, you know that nothing comes for free and you would rather not pay the price unless it is truly worth having. Rather than expressing your emotions to another, you will tend to purchase tokens of affection, as it seems to be easier for you to handle them rejecting your present than for them to reject you emotionally. You deeply desire to be loved but you are unable to be intimately close to another. Inside, you are insecure and do not believe you are worthy of being loved. It is only when you transform this way of thinking that your life will turn around for the better. You deserve as much love as anyone does, though this needs to come to you on your own. Try to let go of what happened in the past and move forward with your life.
Your demeanour is usually stern and sombre and others may think you generally do not care about much. These observations are untrue as it is more so that you are being careful about who you reveal yourself to. You desire warmth and affection though it is very challenging for you. In order for you to receive affection, you will need to show it first. You cannot purchase other peoples feelings. Letting loose and having a good time without reservation is hard for you. Working diligently towards a practical result is something you can more readily comprehend, but emotions? They confuse you. It is uncommon that you engage in fun just for the sake of fun. Work tends to be fun for you which is baffling to others. Oddly enough, there is the occasional moment where you will distract yourself with something and leave the work to build up. You must find equilibrium between the serious side of life and enjoying yourself.
You may seek out romantic partners that do not treat you the way they should. If you find a way to appreciate the person you are, others will also. Safety and stability are valuable to you though you are unsure how to acquire them. You often worry about losing monetary assets or the people you care for. These feelings may become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Allow yourself to open up to others and forget past hurt. Look your problems right in the eye and deal with them; it is the one path to conquering them.
When faced with much difficulty you can become very pessimistic and down on your luck. Acting responsibly is important though life has put these challenges in place for you to grow in strength and wisdom. You are more likely than others to comprehend that there is more to life than being happy. However, this does not require that you must live in misery. Your loneliness stems from your unwillingness to accept that people do truly care for you. Again, it is likely your own insecurities colouring reality for you. If you want to draw love towards you, then you must first act in a caring fashion.
You are guarded about sharing your interests with others because you are fearful that they will reject you. In your relationships you may be mildly envious or try to possess your partner, as you tend to be so afraid of losing what is yours that you cling to it. However, this tendency only works to distance your partner from you as they feel trapped, creating the exact thing that you were worried about. No amount of force can keep someone that does not wish to be kept. Feelings of love should be allowed to be expressed freely, without control being placed on them. Try to keep in mind that the challenges you are facing in life are only there to aid in your growth.
You have a tendency towards being self-centred, emotionally reserved, unconcerned with the feelings of others, afraid, worrying, and self-doubting. You are ambitious, willing to do anything to achieve your aims. Exhibiting caution, you carefully, dutifully wade through life, never skirting your responsibilities. Life is a serious business to you and you work yourself harder than you should at times; attempt a less sombre approach and it might surprise you. Rather than trying something new, you enjoy engaging in what you are accustomed to. You often feel as though you are inadequate, causing you to be lonely and insecure. Anything you attempt to succeed at must be bought with due diligence; you will spend a long while working towards your goals before they are achieved. Interruptions may postpone your plans often, unfortunately. You may also have trouble with the paternal parental figure in your life or people who are in charge. This placement can create considerable challenges for you, however it does bestow you with perseverance and the ability to wait as long as is needed to achieve your goals. It would be beneficial for you to learn how to be giving to others without looking for something in return. Past life karma insists that you act in kindness and generosity in this lifetime, as you had been too self-interested and uncaring in the past. Fate is forcing you to develop ways to work with others in a caring manner.
In addition to the above, you must find a way to conquer your critical nature. You expect nothing less than perfect from yourself and other people, causing you to criticise yourself sternly when you fall short in any way. Try to be a little more realistic in your expectations as they are often not possible to achieve. Your high expectations create a lot of tension and irritability for you. Sometimes you believe that other people are trying to limit you, when the truth is that you are subconsciously drawing in these negative situations to teach you that you must practice tolerance and ease up on yourself and other people. The intent of your tribulations is to show you that you do not need to take life so seriously.
You achieve your aspirations by being dedicated, diligent, forward-thinking, persevering, structured, and on occasion through coincidental good fortune; you tend to get lucky in attaining your goals. People feel they can trust you to be counted on as you are a dependable sort. What you promise, you make sure to deliver. This constancy draws others to you. Whatever you require to accomplish your endeavours seems to come to you somehow, even if it is in the last moments. You are able to achieve equilibrium between what is possible and what is actual. You are able to work well on a team; however you usually feel more at ease when working on your own. You are patient in your work efforts and persist regardless the duration, as you know the effort will be rewarded in the end.
You like to keep your feelings under a tight reign. This placement helps to balance your feelings even when circumstances are difficult. Others may be frantic during these times, yet you remain calm and collected. You are reasonable and unbiased during stressful situations which help you to solve the underlying issue amidst emotional chaos. This placement allows you to concentrate more effectively. You do not skirt your duties and people know they can rely on you to do what you have committed to doing. You are loyal to those in your circle and to the people you feel close to, supporting them behind the scenes. You dislike being idle and enjoy watching the fruit of your labour. Mentally you tend to stick to the conservative route, letting tradition guide you. Frivolous thoughts for the sake of fun are not really your cup of tea; you take a more sombre approach. However, you are not always able to show your feelings towards those you care for. It would be beneficial if you could develop a more open manner and convey these inner emotions outwardly to them somehow. You are independent and methodical, as well as having a good ability to organise, handle money and business, and behave diplomatically when interacting with people. You are very patient and willing to persevere until you have reached your goal. You are ethical, dutiful, faithful, and fair.
You are mentally quick and attentive, having no trouble making decisions. You enjoy engaging in challenging conversations or arguing a case in good sport, and strategic games are appealing to you as well. Reading is a favourite pastime and you gather bits of information from everything you can get a hold of. Your brain is usually spinning with new concepts that you express to others confidently, in a way that is powerfully convincing. When you wish to be funny, you prefer sarcasm or dark comedy to the obvious, light-hearted stuff. Your hand coordination is exceptionally good and it is unlikely that you have a strong preference between your left and right hand, often using both with equal skill. Communicating with your hands is also common for you, though you communicate enthusiastically in general. You would do well in positions of leadership, sales, management, or promotion. People naturally appoint you to take control of a situation as you are confident and decisive, able to direct others easily and effectively. You have a talent for the written word and are particularly good at articulating critique. Never fearful of letting others know when they are incorrect on an issue, though you may be too blunt at times and would do well to develop some tack in those situations. You have a good head on your shoulders and your practical reasoning aids you in achieving whatever you can dream up. Technical skill is also present and you usually excel in mathematics. Your self-confidence and capable decision-making shines through in anything you undertake. There is a tension within you when you are idle and therefore you prefer staying continuously active. This tendency keeps you working on many different endeavours at once, and you certainly have enough energy for them all. However, it would be beneficial for you to find a way to incorporate some down time into your hectic life, perhaps by participating in the quieter forms of martial arts such as Tai Chi or maybe looking into meditative practices. Any sort of sport will also help you to release the over-abundant energy within you.
You are imaginative with a good deal of idealism and an excellent intuition due to your heightened sensitivity. You are caring, warm, kind, empathetic, and enjoy a bit of romance. You are a great listener and others know you will be open-minded and accepting when they reveal their troubles to you. You are able to inspire through your artistic endeavours and talents, and these projects are deeply emotionally satisfying for you. Large bodies of water tend to fascinate you, especially if you can couple this love with a creative venture such as photographing the ocean. You do not mind having to give something up if it means you can aid someone else. In order to remain stable and secure in your emotions, you must find an outlet for the creativity within. You are interested in subjects pertaining to the mystical realm and may even have a knack for this field if you can properly focus your energies. You are very sensitive to the energy around you and can easily be influenced by negative people or circumstances. It would be beneficial for you to stay in beautiful environments with limited tension as much as possible. In fact, you probably go to a great length of trouble to keep tensions out of the interactions you have with others, preferring to always keep your dealings harmonious. You are very giving with your efforts to come to the aid of people who may need you; serving people is part of your path and you value it highly. It is possible that you may have visions of the future while you sleep.
You are spontaneous, responsive, and innovative with an active vitality and ability to make confident decisions with ease. The mundane daily schedule of life is unappealing to you and if forced to endure this monotonous ordeal day in and day out, you are likely to feel trapped. You need something to be happening, something new and different, especially if it is a type of activity where you can express your agility and well-timed pace; relaxation may be a challenge for you as you require being constantly active. Much of your energy may come from the high-strung nerves you possess and the internal restlessness you feel regularly. You strive to be a part of projects that require reforming a system or changing tradition somehow. Highly self-sufficient, you dislike having to answer to anyone and need a great deal of space to get into whatever tickles your fancy at the moment. You are often the leader in whatever endeavours you start on, providing inspirational guidance to those working with you. 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. You can be rebellious when given instruction, however you also sense when it is important for you follow without causing issue. Though you work to create change, you are keen to observe when the price of change may be too high. You have a magnetic personality that draws others to you and when you lead, you do not do so because you are power-hungry but rather because you have great insight into what is likely to happen and how best to maneuver the situation to succeed. Often your life is full of unexpected and rather strange circumstances, though you do not mind having to handle them as you are always up for enhancing your abilities.
You are generally happy, accepting, positive, laid-back, and generous. You want to spread some of the joy you feel to others, though at times you may give too much of yourself. In your mind, whatever you set out to accomplish will work out somehow and this can cause you to put in very little effort or concern. If something is difficult, you may exert only sluggish attempts of solving the issue. This is particularly true in regards to your emotions. You are also likely to indulge in tasty cuisine more than you should which causes you trouble in maintaining your figure and can lead to larger problems in the future. This placement bestows you with a pleasing personality, an idealistic viewpoint, an ethical nature, open-mindedness, good fortune, and monetary aid from friends and familial ties. You highly dislike dishonest behaviour and prefer to act honourably at all times; you have a very strong moral compass. You enjoy thinking about philosophy and can be rather devoted to your beliefs even if you do not belong to any specific religion. You are self-assured and do not suffer with the insecurities that many are plagued with; you know who you are and what you are capable of. When you do encounter trouble, it does not keep you down for long but rather you are likely to find your problems quite humorous. In fact, you try to insert a good deal of laughter and joy into your life in general. You hope to see others improving themselves and their situations and you are happy to aid them in doing so if it fosters their advancement. The main concern with this placement is to be mindful of your tendency towards laziness and over-indulgence. You are well-loved by others due to your upstanding nature.
The Planets in astrology symbolize what is being addressed. They behave as actors in a production. What is happening on stage? The signs in astrology are the way that the actors behave on stage. They ask the question how? How is the planet motivated? How are they living their life, in their highest good or in their shadow? The signs describe in detail how the actor might react, behave or conduct themselves.
In nature, a goat will strive to climb to the top of the hill and a Capricorn, being half goat, is no different. They will try to achieve great heights on their own merit. Capricorns are conventional, coordinated, systematic, dutiful, trustworthy, sincere, effective, reasonable, controlled, commanding, driven, serious, and willing to wait as long as is necessary to attain their goals. However, they can also be anxious, negative, penalising, doubtful, inflexible, and close-minded (learn about compatibility with Capricorn here). They do well in positions where they must utilise their excellent coordinating talents alongside their diligent nature and honourable work ethic. Coming up short on their responsibilities worries them.
Due to their reserved demeanour, they may seem the lone-wolf type. Capricorns can put up impenetrable walls in order to maintain their safety from harsh realities. You cannot keep them from pursuing their dreams. They will cling to their obligations and take work very seriously. Capricorns feel inadequate somehow and this compels them to work harder to achieve. They desire the respect of others and wish to be looked up to.
Capricorns enjoy strategising; they will make sure to analyse a situation thoroughly before deciding on a course of action. You can depend on them to come through during an emergency situation. They are also sound counsel, when needed. Capricorns are not usually hostile, though they can be intimidating if they feel threatened somehow.
Often times a Capricorn will feel lonely and misunderstood, highly attuned to any slights directed their way. If Capricorns are in a bad place mentally or emotionally, they may become punishing or vengeful towards those who have wronged them. Capricorns need a great deal of warmth and affection, though may keep others at arms length, believing they may be wounded otherwise. However, they are exceptionally faithful to those they are closest to. Being esteemed, admired, and appreciated are vital to them.
They feel most secure with a steady cash flow, as they are anxious to lose their material assets. Capricorns are unlikely to take risks in order to gain fortune, they would prefer to take the slow and steady course, investing in a sure bet. Not much will deter a Capricorn from their goal and they can muster enormous fortitude when they have decided on a course of action. Instant gratification is not their style; they are aware that what is truly worth having will require many sacrifices. Working diligently and steadily can revitalise them. Capricorns are also likely to be frugal and enjoy forming collections of items precious or interesting to them. Wastefulness is not something they can abide by. Wasting of their time is part of this; they prefer to spend time in conversation only when they have something they wish to convey.
Capricorns will need to curb their insecurities in order to tap into their artistic potential; self-doubt will limit them. It is imperative that they develop confidence in their abilities and combat negative thinking patterns. Capricorns can accomplish anything if they only put their minds to it; where there is a will, there is a way and Capricorns definitely have a strong will!
Capricorns are able to endure a great many challenges and delays in order to attain their objectives, which is important, as their road will be laden with them unfortunately. Going through these challenges causes them to learn discipline, fostering growth in enlightenment by releasing their focus on material aims. Working may prove to be relaxing to a Capricorn; often they will use this as a form of escape from daily life. However, they can become workaholics if they are not careful. They do not really know how to unwind and are usually at their best when their lives are full of activities for them to do.
Capricorns are considerate and independent. They may not possess the grand charisma that some of the other signs do but they are kind, diplomatic, and caring individuals. They are easily able to empathise with others due to their own difficult emotions. Romantically, Capricorns can be just as enamoured and affected as the rest of them, though they are usually unable to express those feelings outwardly. They will take the time to get to know someone thoroughly before committing to them, preferring to take into consideration long-term goals and values. However, once they are committed they tend to remain so, as they feel they can work through any difficulty if they give it their all.
You like to keep your thoughts and secrets to yourself and may quietly dwell on perceived hurts and betrayals. You are naturally distrustful of others intentions and therefore do not expose your true emotions until someone has been thoroughly vetted, if even then. Emotional intimacy in personal relationships is difficult for you as you prefer keeping your feelings under lock and key; vulnerability feels somehow unsafe to you. All of your actions are expressed in an intense fashion, you care intensely and loathe intensely. You are passionate to the core; nothing is done halfway. This passion can express itself as a tendency to dominate your significant others or treat them as though they were objects that only you hold rights to; be mindful of the green-eyed monster. It is possible that your maternal parental figure was also dominating towards you. You find it difficult to let go of any past hurts or disloyalty and may harbour feelings of spite, bitterness, or remorse. Often these strong inner demons are kept secret. It is imperative that you vent these frustrations somehow and find a way to move beyond previous occurrences; forgiving others will be far healthier for you. Still waters run deep with you, and you would be dissatisfied with shallow, insincere interactions; you attempt to delve as far as you can into anothers essence. You will achieve a great deal if you can only learn self-control and restraint. You are driven, enthusiastic, self-sufficient, assertive, passionate, dedicated, and willing to wait as long as it takes to accomplish your goals. You also possess a great deal of personal magnetism. Sexuality or death may be on-going themes in your psyche.
Mentally you are reasonable, logical, sombre, self-controlled, impartial, sensible, and clear-headed; fanciful assertions do not sway you. You need factual data before you can get behind a concept. You are naturally sceptical, though at times this makes you pessimistic. You will tend to tackle challenges in a practical way, keeping a cool head regardless of the situation. As long as you remain interested in a subject, you can put forth great levels of focus and to achieve the outcome you desire. Detail-oriented, you are unlikely to forget what most people would over-look or deem insignificant. Your serious approach to life may come across to others as humourless, dull, or unhappy and you usually have a good deal going on mentally. Your mind is meticulous, controlled, and well-organised which contributes to a good business sense as well as an ability for administrative tasks. Forward-thinking, you have an excellent talent for strategy and can easily devise a scheme for successfully reaching long-term goals. You require a certain amount of seclusion to consolidate your thoughts or engage in solitary activities; you make a great student. You understand that time is a valuable commodity and therefore do not waste yours when you can be achieving something more meaningful.
In a romantic partner, you are most interested by someone who can increase your personal development in some way, especially your perception or awareness. You prefer your love interest to be out-going, adventurous, full-of-life, and open-minded as you would like to experience all that life has to offer with them, especially if these adventures involve travel. You enjoy immersing yourself in new cultural experiences that can broaden your horizons. It is imperative that you are able to relate to your significant other on a mental or spiritual level and you like to convey your goals, wishes, and values to them. However, romanticism is not your style and your partner may find you a bit too laid-back or informal, which can instil doubt of your intentions towards them. Nevertheless, you are still apt to be idealistic about romantic feelings. There is a tendency towards feeling that the grass is always greener somewhere else and this may keep you from staying with a partner for the long haul; it will be helpful for your partner to keep up the excitement that is felt in the early stages of a relationship or to be able to help you expand your mind, as these will hold your interest. You are compassionate, caring, giving, and a positive thinker with an inclination towards religion which you choose to convey through humanitarian or philanthropic efforts, together with your loved one.
You express your energy in a passive, cooperative fashion. You are likely to avoid confrontations in general, preferring to deal with issues indirectly. Being in the lime-light would only make you uncomfortable and therefore you prefer to work out of sight. Unfortunately, you will often rather lose something rather than compete for it. You are not particularly concerned with ambitious pursuits and will not engage in competition to get ahead and this can come across to others as cowardly. Being at the top is not something you would strive for and you are better suited to an assisting position, or aiding or benefiting others somehow. Realistic strategy is difficult for you and it may be a good idea to elicit help when planning ahead. Never certain what exactly it is that you want to do with your life, you wander about aimlessly in search of spiritual fulfilment. You can be quite a daydreamer with an idealistic view, possibly devoting yourself towards religion or spiritual matters. There are artistic inclinations here that can be fruitful if you are able to devote yourself to developing them. You may seem calm on the exterior, though there is a lot happening on the inside. You are also tactful and subtle with a great sense of humour and a strong intuition. However, indecision wreaks havoc in your life and you may be prone to escapism by substance abuse to avoid your duties. It is imperative that you develop self-discipline. Make an effort to create the changes you want to see in your life, do not expect life to hand them to you on a silver platter.
The current state of human affairs is likely to mean a great deal to you. You feel we are all tied together and should collaborate for a better future. It is likely that you will become involved in many projects where you are working with a large team of people, as you believe this will help you to grow as a person. Due to your innovative ideas, great common sense, sociability, and intellectual pursuits you are able to coordinate with almost anyone. You are friendly and accepting with strong intuition.
