The specificity of your personality can be summed up by your nostalgic yearning for your roots – a “paradise lost” which is also a source of energy and vitality. Your power is linked to memory. You inhabit a present which draws sustenance from the past, from continuity and timelessness. The power of memory can either be dynamic or static. The consciousness of an inaccessible past can either immobilize you in melancholy and nostalgia, or shine as an ideal which motivates you to recreate a new harmony.

Because you are sometimes self-centered, attentive to and protective of your inner self, you may tend to withdraw into your shell when you encounter aggression from the outer world. As a result, you may sometimes become distant and secretive. Your tendency to be rather short-tempered and easily offended, a classic flaw, is also the consequence of your need for protection and security.

You were born on the seventh to tenth day after the new moon. As a “soli-lunar” configuration, this means that you are strong-willed and often proud.
