You are a loner. You are sometimes withdrawn and have a fairly chilly, nonchalant personality. Although you are introverted, you are extremely rational. You are wary at times of the outer world, your senses, and even your intellect, because they might all be sources of illusion.

Readings which others would find abstract and intellectual impress you as reflections of important and lively realities. As a result, you have a penchant for reflection and philosophical study. You are intrigued by difficult problems and enjoy solving them. There is no difficulty which can discourage you from the goal you have decided to reach for yourself.

In fact, you tend to like mountain climbing, because of the effort it requires. It’s a great joy for you. Alone at the peak, you can contemplate and understand everything. In pursuit of this absolute center (positive or negative) which animates you, you are shrewd and persistent. Stamina and endurance are resources of which you are quite confident. Your existence and organism are arranged to optimize them; others may consider you slow, but you are really just playing it safe, because, unconsciously, you know time is on your side. When you take an initiative, it is after careful forethought and preparation. Your great composure, ability to resist and overcome obstacles and wickedness, and your foresight give you a great potential to accomplish total self-control.

Born on the third day before the new moon, you have a spiritual character that is closely attached to humanitarian ideals. You are sometimes sorely tested to keep yourself within the narrow scope of individual ambition, but you aim for a humanitarian ideal which would include the outcasts and the unfortunate. You fervently hope the meek will inherit the earth. To bring about this ideal, you are likely to use every resource available to you- physical effort, money (if you have it), speech, your writings, and your poetic or artistic talents.
