Mistrust of emotion sometimes makes it difficult for those born on this day to open up to other people. However, once you do, you make a caring, helpful mate. In an intimate union, you are romantic and idealistic. Because you value companionship and friendship almost as much as love, you need a partner who challenges you intellectually. Close relationships can be problematic because you require space to pursue your various interests. Although you like to party and flirt, you really need the security of a stable love relationship. When you find the right person, you’ll probably stay together for a lifetime.
A highly skilled lover, you’re fascinated with the mechanics and techniques of sexuality. Although your style of lovemaking is emotionally cool and lighthearted, you have a serious appreciation for the physical joys of lovemaking. Your approach to the erotic pleasures of the body is direct, earthy, and unpretentious. Mental affinity with your lover is as important to you as physical rapport. Since you’re mainly motivated by curiosity, variety spices up your love life and keeps you interested between the sheets.
The intimate banter of sex games and other verbal enticements has a major impact on you. Whispering sweet nothings turns you on, and you love it when the lusty words morph into sexy reality. Expressing your secret desires verbally inflames them further and also clues your lover in to what you like doing and having done to you in bed.
You’re self-expressive and fluent in speech and writing. Naturally shrewd and insightful, you are good at detecting other people’s underlying motivations.
However, this emphasis on the intellect often comes at the expense of your own feelings and emotions. You’re not unsympathetic or unfeeling, yet intense emotions can make you anxious and uncomfortable.
