You have a broad face with strong bones, beautiful and expressive eyes.
You may be a possessive parent, egotistical and selfish in temperament, and a braggart .
You are not satisfied with the material heights you attain and are always aspiring towards greater intellect, greater wealth, greater status, and greater respectability.
Often you think you have achieved more than you really have; nevertheless, you are never satisfied, for you think you deserve more than you have received. You always strive to reach the top of the mountain.
Involvement in work is intense and whole-hearted.
You may be seen working adroitly on the subtle problems of life, whether related to physical sciences, psychology, or to concrete and technological problems in engineering, industry or economics.
There is a suddenness in your actions which gives your an element of surprise and unpredictability.
However involved you may seem in a pursuit or relationship, you can suddenly end it.
You are loyal to your friends, but that friendship can end suddenly.
The world exists only for your convenience and the satisfaction of your desires.
In your social relationships, contradiction and self-aggrandizement seem to predominate.

This word contains a world of occult meaning within itself; and it may not be prudent on my part to disclose the whole of its meaning now. It will be sufficient for the present purpose to give a general indication of its significance.
This synonym--Panchasyam -- shows that the sign is intended to represent the five Brahmas -- viz., Isanam, Aghoram, Tatpurusham, Vamadevam, and Sadyojatam: -- the five Buddhas.
The Sukarahasy Upanishad will show that the ancient Aryan philosophers looked upon Narayana as the Jivatma.*
The Vaishnavites may not admit it. But as an Advaiti, I look upon Jivatma as identical with Paramatma in its real essence when stripped of its illusory attributes created by Agnanam or Avidya--ignorance.
( * In its lowest or most material state, as the life-principle which animates the material bodies of the animal and vegetable worlds, and c. --Ed. Theos.)
The Jivatma is correctly placed in the fifth sign counting from Mesham, as the fifth sign is the putrasthanam or the son's house according to the rules of Hindu Astrology.
I will only add here that unless the nature of this sign is fully comprehended it will be impossible to understand the real order of the next three signs and their full significance.
If the real orthography of the name by which the sign in question is indicated is properly understood, it will readily be seen that the next three signs are not what they ought to be.
( * Nevertheless it is a true one. The Jiv-atma in the Microcosm (man) is the same spiritual essence which animates the Macrocosm (universe), the differentiation, or specific difference between the two Jivatmas presenting itself but in the two states or conditions of the same and one Force.
Hence,"this son of Paramatma" is an eternal correlation of the Father-Cause. Purusha manifesting himself as Brahma of the"golden egg"and becoming Viradja--the universe.
We are"all born of Aditi from the water" (Hymns of the Maruts, X. 63, 2), and"Being was born from not-being" (Rig-Veda, Mandala I, Sukta 166).--Ed. Theos.)"
