Your gifts are those of the heart. You have great empathy for people's unhappiness, and may often find yourself playing the role of good father to those friends and loved ones who need an understanding and nonjudgmental shoulder to cry on.

This chapter describes attitudes, needs and characteristic patterns in close one-to-one relationships.Both astrology and psychology teach us that nothing that occurs within a relationship is chance. Your birth horoscope describes what you are like inside, and therefore what kind of patterns, needs and compulsions you are likely to bring into your relationships with others.

But you are magnetically attracted to those more gregarious, outgoing women who exude charm and warmth and who seem to effortlessly make friends. Such a woman is a good balance for you, and this kind of relationship can be very fulfilling; for you can offer your partner a glimpse into the importance of inner resources and self-sufficiency, while she in turn can help you to feel more like [...] VI.
