You are usually clever, quick-thinking, and informed in the sphere of your engagement. You are an active and energetic person, who does not like to idly waste time, who knows what you want, and will strive to achieve it through hard work, persistence, and determination. You are able to use your material resources in effective and economical manner.
You are also able to create material prosperity and comfort for yourself and your family members. You strive for a healthy, balanced, harmonious life, and don't spare you efforts in order to attain it, as well as stimulate others around you to various useful activities. You possess good organizational skills and know how to create suitable conditions for people to do work, to make them become interested and involved, and only then demand results from them. You highly value quality in work and are intolerant of lack of discipline and laziness.
You like beautiful, high quality items, as well as tasty, healthy food. You like it when people evaluate you based on your merits, and don't impinge on your independence in selecting solutions or methods of action.
One of your weak points is an inability to plan for alternative events for lengthy periods of time. You often find yourself overloaded with tasks, chores, and work that appear seemingly from nowhere, and require time to prepare for important events. You have difficulty foreseeing approaching danger or failure in business. Unexpected turns of events that you could not foresee frustrate and unnerve you, knock you out of balance. You find it difficult to spend much time waiting for the outcome of any undertaking, especially if there's little confidence in its success.
You are recommended to frequently review your views on various aspects of life, and to put aside any outdated and unworkable traditions and habits. Dry logic of facts should not suppress in you the appreciation of all that is new and unusual. Moderate your conservatism and stubbornness. More often compare yourself to others, cultivate flexibility in your ways of competing.
You tend to rely on your intuition in your assessments of people, not suspecting that you greatly overestimate this ability in yourself and that you are not immune from arriving at erroneous conclusions and prognoses. The consequence of this may be inappropriate or mis-attributed suspicions, and undue harshness in dealing with others, which can put you in an awkward ethical position. Try to have more restraint and tact in such questions.
Another one of your problems is your inability to control your emotions in relation to people who are close to you, who don't obey your instructions and guidance, if their actions contradict your logic and common sense.

Your family members and close ones may feel upset and disappointed with you due to such contrasts in your behavior.
With you lack of restraint you can alienate your loved ones. Try to be more patient, don't rush to tell the truth to a person's face. Being excessively direct usually does not work in your favor. Cool down first, then think about what is better to say, to whom, and in which manner.
Learn to relax, to switch you focus from work to pleasant ways to take a break. Try to look at conflicts from the side of humor. You are usually endowed with a good sense of humor - it can calm you and let you vent your emotions in an acceptable form.
Read fiction more often. Go to the theater - such leisure activities will soften your harsh character and help you to nurture and cultivate refinement and nobility of your sentiments and feelings.
