Your Secret Self
Your inner sensitivity may not always be obvious from your confident front. Being a problem-solver who is looking for deeper meaning in life, you often intuitively know the answer to other people’s dilemmas. Responsible, with a strong need for love and affection, you are willing to go to great lengths to create harmony, even to the point of making sacrifices for others. You run the risk of caring so much, however, that even with the best of intentions you may become domineering or interfering. By using the power of love, you are able to overcome obstacles and forgive others to create the peace you so strongly seek.
Dramatic, proud, and strong-willed, you do not like to be in subservient positions. A good awareness of values and an innate business sense enable you to turn any situation to your advantage as long as you do not become too preoccupied with material concerns. Although charming, at times you may have to guard against being too outspoken or verbally cutting. Nevertheless, with your inner strength and charismatic personality, you only have to apply the necessary self-discipline to achieve outstanding success in life.
PRIMARY STAR’S INFLUENCE

However; it also warns against rashness, destructive behavior; obstinacy, and vengeful acts.
Linked to your Sun’s degree, Antares imparts an interest in education, politics, or business dealing with the public. You are probably idealistic, optimistic, and willing to fight for just causes. Antares also bestows a talent for writing and a religious outlook that seeks knowledge and wisdom. Although Antares confers honor and riches, these are not necessarily long-lasting.

Work & Vocation
Your keen intelligence and excellent communication skills point to a remarkable capacity for achievement. You may have to guard against taking on too much, or overcome a tendency to doubt yourself.

Being naturally sociable as well as having shrewd business acumen point you toward careers that may incorporate both of these characteristics, such as sales, publishing, or media. Alternatively, you may want to use your highly creative approach to life through writing or the the arts. A philosophical or humanitarian leaning may be satisfied through occupations such as charity work, religion, or becoming a philanthropist.

Love & Relationships
Idealistic and honest, you need to choose your partners carefully; otherwise it may be difficult for anyone to live up to your high expectations. Although your naturally friendly personality ensures that you have many friends, having two sides to your nature implies that you may alternate between being optimistic, spontaneous, and affectionate and appearing indifferent or withdrawn. These changing moods can leave others wondering or bewildered. Often looking for an almost spiritual bond, you can go to great lengths to help those you love.
