You have an ideal of which you are only partially conscious, but it has a great influence on your psychology. You are determined to preserve your integrity and purity. Even though you may not be aware of it, you are often preoccupied by this predicament. How can you live in this world and remain true to yourself? How can you succeed in life without sacrificing your ideals? It’s the eternal philosophical dilemma. You have developed a solution, however; you elaborate a fairly strict code of behavior and try to obey it as much as possible. The path that you walk in life is straight and narrow.

You are offended by imperfection and try to find ways to correct it. You are eager to help, to be useful, to serve a great cause, but you sometimes do not know whom or what you seek to serve. Whatever purpose you adopt, you must learn to help without surrendering yourself entirely; you tend to try to disappear into the background of a hierarchy. You are sometimes attracted by readymade systems, which soothe a certain anxiety you have. You wouldn’t mind devoting yourself to a state, a big corporation, or a dogma. It would be reasonable and satisfying. But you sometimes forget to rebel a bit – to evaluate whether the end justifies the means. You are reassured by predictability. When you commit yourself, you want to know exactly where you are bound and how. This may be a bit of
