People born in this part of the, possess an innate "natural understanding' and intuition. They absorb knowledge easily, especially of the history of countries and people, and as well as matters relating to travel, exploitation of lands, research, exploration and such like things.
They are more mentally ambitious than they appear to be in the ordinary way, but they feel they must know their subject thoroughly before they speak or write about it.
They have great loyalty to friends or to any cause they take up, provided they feel they are trusted or looked up to.

The strongest and weakest characters are found in this Sign. Some are inclined to gratify their innate sense of luxury and self-indulgence, and if this side of the nature is the one that controls, they are likely to be too easy going, to be too receptive to their surroundings, to become influenced by false friends, to give way to fraudulent schemes and in some cases are inclined to become addicted to drugs or drink.
If, however, persons born in this part of the year find some purpose worth living for, they rise to the emergency as few others can. These are the people that one meets sometimes in life who surprise their friends by their sudden change of character.
They can, in a moment, throw off any form of weakness or self-indulgence and rise to any height of self-denial. All persons born in this part of the year have a dual element as the mainspring of their nature. It simply depends on which of the two roads they have decided to follow.

They would do best by aiming at some form of public life, such as in municipal affairs or in connection with politics, government life, or positions of responsibility and trust. They love to search out or investigate the unknown the philosophical or the mysterious.
Although by nature generous, they have at heart a curious dread of poverty and for that reason do not allow their generous instincts to get the better of them unless they are under the influence of someone they love. In such a case they become easily influence and are likely to give away all they possess. Money has not value in their eyes. It is something to be used, or as a means to an end and nothing more.
