For the most part they are ruled by their likes and dislikes, their happiness and their unhappiness and they express their emotions freely, like a child. However, they are less likely to see beyond their own emotional experience of a situation. Therefore, they have a great desire to feel at ease and emotionally comfortable and therefore have a strong connection to the home where they can feel this sense of connection to the self and the family. The home is their domain and they tend to hold on possessively to the family connections. When they are able to get beyond their own emotional states, these natives can use their social skills to effectively influence others – they are capable of having mass appeal.
