Love & Relationships
Intelligent and knowledgeable, you have an authoritative poise that attracts many admirers. Being responsible and thoughtful, you are honest and direct. If you believe in someone, you will be very supportive and reassuring. Although you are caring, your inclination to take charge of situations implies that at times you may become self-imposing or domineering. It is therefore better to merely suggest to others a course of action or let them make up their own mind. You admire emotionally balanced people who are contented and happy. Your need for a secure foundation in life often adds emphasis to the importance of your marriage, or, if you are single, of a strong home base.
