You are generous both in material goods and in the things of spirit with the people you love. Nor will you allow people to refuse your gifts.

On job evaluations, your boss often notes your persistence, another product of your fixed nature. Being where you should be, regardless of adverse circumstances, is your second nature. You don’t respect people who can’t keep a schedule.
Your faults in included a stubborn, intractable nature where your mind can’t be changed for love or money. At times, you are overly possessive and jealous. However, all this is easily overshadowed by your warm, loving and down-to-earth nature.
