The ruler of the sign, Saturn, gives you a touch of coldness, or withdrawal into yourself, but it also makes for a firm and authoritarian character, with a strong sense of duty and responsibilities. You are of a reserved disposition, and your survival instinct urges you to spare your energy and set a rigorous discipline for yourself. You remarkably use the time factor: you are a painstaking and methodical worker, and your unremitting nature sees you through all obstacles. You decide on your line of conduct long in advance, so as not to let any surprise hinder your plans whatsoever. You have a deep and level-headed personality. You take things in slowly but surely, making sure that you're not leaving anything out. You have a great power of focus, and you generally examine and compare facts thoroughly before you accept them. In romance, you are a sceptic. You behave in a reserved and discreet manner, and reason generally keeps you from yielding to the impulses of your heart. Yet, your affections are deep and lasting if the bond that unites you is based on security, tenderness and constant care and attention. In company, you often remain discreet; but you are a refined diplomatist and good counselor, who generally attracts the interest of quality personalities. You seldom share your secrets; your feelings and emotions are "imprisoned in a fortress", where you retire at times of solitude (which you enjoy doing). You are ambitious but also patient. Your personal merit and the seriousness and persistence of your efforts should eventually bring you success. Most of the time, the spheres of activity where you work your way up the best are familiar fields, official channels, or positions involving considerable responsibilities. Thanks to your clear-mindedness, you always keep something to fall back on, so as to secure your long-range plans. In some cases, you aim at moral or spiritual elevation, which then brings about a certain austerity regarding material values.
