Chapter 1: General Characteristics

 

     Your fundamentalneeds, values, and orientation towards life are symbolized by the fourastrological elements. Each person has their own unique balance of these fourbasic energies: fire (warmth, inspiration, enthusiasm), earth (practicality,realism, material interests), air (social and intellectual qualities), andwater (emotional needs and feelings).

 

    Your "elementalmake-up" is described below. Remember that most people are"unbalanced" or lopsided, and if you are lacking or deficient in acertain element (or elements), it simply means that you need to consciouslydevelop that aspect of yourself to learn to appreciate and/or to work harder inthat dimension of life.

 

    Sometimes we overvalue theelement that we are least endowed with, sensing it as a lack within ourselves,but more often we neglect or ignore it. The qualities described below will bereiterated and explained in more detail in the following chapters.

 

Fire and Earthare Strong (F,E,A,W Scores = 16,30,0,3):

 

    You have two strongimpulses which are somewhat at odds with one another but when blended can behighly creative and productive. On the one hand, there is the dreamer, thegambler, the idealist, the optimist who is full of hopeful confidence, spark,and creative energy. This is the side of you that believes in magic andextraordinary possibilities. Equally strong, however, is the conservative,practical, adult side which seeks security and stability, and which needs to beproductive in a concrete way.

 

    Having both of these urgescan lead to some internal predicaments, such as: Should I take the safe, welltraveled path which offers me security or one which is unpredictable but whichoffers more freedom and adventure? Is there a way for me to live my dreamsrather than simply wish and hope and fantasize about them? Can I bring mydreams to fruition without compromising too much for the sake of the market place?Can I be an idealist who is effective in the everyday mundane world? How can Iexpress myself freely as an individual, while also being responsible and takingcare of practical obligations and necessities? Should I be generous, or carefuland conservative? Should I play (and be more of a child) or work?

 

    If you give up one side ofthe equation (for instance, opting for security at the expense of yourcreativity or your ideals, or choosing to spend most of your time playing andenjoying your own creative pursuits without making any tangible contribution tothe world), you will feel unbalanced and unhappy.

 

    Your challenge is to learnto somehow have the best of both worlds - to have an inspiration or ideal toaim for and to do something tangible with it. Or, put another way, to bringplay and creativity and passion into your work. Your initiative, confidence andfaith combined with your practicality would make you quite successful inbusiness especially one of your own.

 

Air is Weak(F,E,A,W Scores = 16,30,0,3):

 

    You tend to lack theability to analyze yourself or your life in a detached, objective way. You feeland experience but do not necessarily understand or reflect upon yourexperience, and thus find it hard to communicate or talk about it. Reallytaking in what someone else has to say can be hard for you - you do not readilyadapt to new ideas or people, and as a result may become inflexible or limityour experience of life. A broadening education and exposure to differentcultures and types of people is very beneficial to you. Otherwise you are aptto be rigid and even prejudiced against those outside your own circle.(Arthritic conditions, poor flexibility, or poor circulation may reflect this).

 

    You also tend to distrustpeople who are free with words or to feel inferior to those who are morearticulate and intellectual than yourself. You learn much more readily bywatching, doing, or apprenticing than by reading or by being told aboutsomething.

 

Water is Weak(F,E,A,W Scores = 16,30,0,3):

 

    You have difficulty dealingwith your own and others' emotions. Feelings and the emotional reality of asituation are often ignored or discounted by you and you may thus seeminsensitive or uncaring to others. Deep emotional rapport, empathy, compassion,and sensitivity to the feelings of others is something that you need todevelop, and will be in more evidence later in life rather than in your youth.

 

    Though you may appearemotionally self-sufficient or above it all, your denied feelings can result inphysical problems, so it is wise and important for you to learn to acknowledgeand express all of your emotions.

 

    You may also find that youcrave a great deal of liquid, or to live near bodies of water, as a way to gainbalance.

 

 

 

 

Chapter 2: How You Approach Life and How You Appear ToOthers

 

    The following is adescription of your basic stance towards life, the way others see you, the wayyou come across, the face you show to the world. In Chapter 3 you will readabout the "The Inner You: Your Real Motivation", which describes thekind of person you are at heart and where your true priorities lie. Read thischapter and the next one and compare them - there may be significantdifferences between them, in which case "the inner you" may not shinethrough and others are in for some surprises when they get to know you at amore than superficial level. This chapter describes the costume you wear, yourrole in life, while Chapter 3 talks about the real person inside the costume.

 

Leo Rising:

 

    Ferociously proud andsomewhat vain, you like to be impressive and to be seen as Somebody Special.You are not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and are rarely content being in thebackground or in the subordinate position. You are a natural leader, and do nottake orders from others very well. You must have something of your own,something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that youcan develop and manage according to your own will and vision. Whatever you do,you do it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. You like to put your ownpersonal stamp on it.

 

    You also have a very strongsense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and are deeply offended ifsomeone treats you in a humiliating or dishonorable way. You will rarelyconfront the offender - you are too proud to do so - but you will lose youraffection and respect for them. You dislike pettiness and hate to be snubbed orignored.

 

    You admire others who arestrong individuals like yourself. When you befriend someone, you aretremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to makethat person happy. You are very giving and generous, but your gifts are neveranonymous - you expect recognition and appreciation for them. You also expect theintense loyalty that you offer to your dear ones to be reciprocated. However,you often have trouble working with people who are as strong as yourself, foryou do not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If you arenot in the leading role, you aspire to be and will compete with the person whois.

 

    You have great heart andcourage, and people often look to you for strength, encouragement, andaffirmation. You always have your best face forward and rarely allow others tosee you hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. You also have a very strong needfor love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although you don't like othersto realize just how important it is to you.

 

    Your outlook on life tendsto be very personal and rather self-centered. Your own self-expression,self-actualization and self-realization interests you more than anything else.You feel that if you do your best where you are, the rest of the world willtake care of itself.

 

Sun Square Asc.:

 

     Despite the fact thatyour core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees,you have a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and tohave a significant influence on people in your environment. You may doremarkable things in order to be noticed. However, you often don't get the fullrecognition you wish for.

 

Mars Trine Asc.:

 

     You are direct,honest, and to the point -- some might say excessively so. However, no one hasto guess who you are or what you want -- you're pretty much up front. Youradiate a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when you're at your best. You seem toenjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.

 

Saturn TrineAsc.:

 

     To others, you appearcapable, mature, and down to earth. Even when you were young, there was acertain practicality and responsibleness about you that inspired people to relyon you. You keep your cool in most situations.

 

Moon SextileAsc.:

 

     Your emotionalinstincts, feelings, and intuition play a big part in the decisions you makeand how you interact with the world, and generally your feelings are quiteaccurate and helpful to you. Also, establishing emotional rapport with thepeople you meet on a day to day level is rather easy for you. You appearsomewhat sympathetic and concerned, so that others are drawn to you, especiallywhen they need guidance or help.

 

Asc. OppositionMars/Saturn

 

    You tend to think of workas a hard and necessary chore and may feel that you have little freedom ofmovement because of pressure caused by your surroundings. You are likely tofeel hemmed in and consider dealing with others quite burdensome.

 

 

 

 

Chapter 3: The Inner You: Your Real Motivation

 

Ascendant in Leo andSun in Taurus:

 

    Although you are quiteproud and you like to show off and impress other people with youraccomplishments, appearance, etc., (as described in the previous chapter), youare really quite practical, solid, and down to earth also, (as will bediscussed below). Because of this, you are likely to actually earn the right tobe admired - that is, to have actually done something to be proud of.

 

Sun in Taurus:

 

    You are a steadfast andpatient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance, andconstancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of yourgreatest assets. Once your course is set, you pursue it tenaciously until it iscompleted, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway you from your purpose.

 

    You have a very practicalnature and want to see concrete, tangible results for your efforts, and you arenot one for spinning wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Mostof your "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements,well-being, and security, for you have a great love of the physical world andyou want to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though you will work long andpersistently, you also have a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and youwant to enjoy what you have worked for. In fact, you can be enormously lazy attimes and have a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthlypleasures. You also love the beauty of the natural world and probably prefer aserene country setting rather than an urban life style.

 

    At heart your needs aresimple and you are easy to please. You have a strong desire for security,stability, and peace, and will rarely make changes unless you are forced to doso. You are not very demanding emotionally, though you do crave lots ofphysical closeness and affection. Because of your faithfulness, emotional steadiness,and gentle strength, others often depend upon you for support. Though you hateupheaval and sudden changes, you usually maintain your poise and equanimity.You also have an innate sense of harmonizing with nature, allowing things togrow and unfold in their own time, and the patience to nurture something intobeing - be it a garden, a child, or some creative project. You make anexcellent mother or father, especially if you follow your instincts more oftenthan "the experts".

 

    You have three majorfaults: one is your bullheaded obstinacy. The second is your unwillingness todeviate from your safe, predictable routine. And the third is your tendency toalways insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, andfanciful - in other words, you lack the ability to play with ideas andpossibilities, to open your mind to the new.

 

Sun in 10thhouse:

 

     Your career,reputation, and public image are very important to you. You have a strongdesire to be influential or make your mark on the world. The merely personalsphere does not satisfy you; your ambitions include making a major contributionand receiving broad recognition for your unique effort and gifts. You mayundervalue the personal or inner side of life.

 

Sun OppositionMoon/Mars

 

    You are strong-willed,forceful and independent. You know what you want, but sometimes may act tooimpulsively causing quarrels or disagreement with others. You tend to judgeyourself and others quite severely, but you are very sincere, honest and trustworthy.

 

Sun ConjunctVenus/Uranus

 

    You are somewhat excitableand quickly aroused. You could be a little self-centered, but at the same timealso magnetic. You like to flirt and tend to fall in love at first sight, butthen transfer your affections to someone else for no apparent reason.

 

Sun OppositionNeptune/N. Node

 

    You may find it hard toestablish contact with other people and tend to look for more timid partners.You could have difficulty expressing your ideas to others as well as coming toan understanding with them.

 

 

 

 

Chapter 4: Mental Interests and Abilities

 

Mercury in Taurus:

 

    Your mind operates in avery deliberate and methodical manner and you dislike being rushed or forced togive an opinion before you have thoroughly ruminated and digested an idea. Youare also difficult to influence once your mind is made up.

 

    Though slower to grasp newconcepts or learn new skills, you are patient and persevering and, in fact,often become quite adept at whatever you put your mind and hand to, for you arewilling to devote much time and attention to it. You succeed not so muchbecause of your mental brilliance, but because you have the ability toconcentrate and follow a project through to its completion. You have anaptitude for singing or drawing.

 

Mercury in 10thhouse:

 

     You think a greatdeal about your career, your reputation and public image, and the way you makea contribution or impact on the world at large. Public speaking orcommunications of some other kind is likely to be an important aspect of thework you do.

 

Mercury TrineJupiter:

 

    You have an ongoinginterest in learning and expanding your mental horizons. You enjoy traveling,philosophical discussions, and exchanging ideas with those of differentexperiences and viewpoints. Broad-minded and fair, you are well-suited to law,consulting, diplomatic relations, and also business. You learn quickly, and canpick up on a new idea or concept with relative ease.

 

MercuryOpposition Jupiter/Neptune

 

    You have good powers ofperception and visualization and an intense imagination. Greatly inspired, youfeel optimistic and hopeful for the future. You are likely to talk a lot aboutyour plans and also are inclined to put on an act at times.

 

 

 

 

Chapter 5: Emotions: Moods, Feelings, Romance

 

Moon in Virgo:

 

    You are very sensitive,cautious, and shy about showing others your feelings. Though you may love andcare for someone a great deal, you rarely express those feelings openly andfreely. Very often your love for someone will be expressed by trying to helpthem, doing something tangible to benefit them, or serving them in some way.

 

    It is also difficult foryou to receive warmth, affection, or appreciation, for you often feel that youdon't really deserve it or that "they don't really mean it". You cantherefore seem rather cool and aloof, much more so than you feel.

 

    A deeply ingrained criticalattitude often makes you difficult to live with. You need to learn to begentler and less of a perfectionist with others and with yourself.

 

Moon in 3rdhouse:

 

     You often makedecisions solely for emotional or personal reasons, because something"feels right" or because you've always done it a certain way and youare uncomfortable changing it. Even when you think you're being rational, yourprejudices, intuitions, and feelings influence your thoughts a great deal. Youare comfortable talking about feelings and personal subjects, and sharingconfidences, which enables others to express their own inner feelings with youas well. You have good psychological insight into others.

 

Moon TrineJupiter:

 

    You are easygoing,agreeable, and tolerant, willing to overlook others' mistakes, forget the past,and begin again on a positive note. You enjoy making others comfortable andhappy, and sometimes overdo your generosity. You often feel that"everything will turn out all right no matter what I do", and sobecome lazy and lackadaisical.

 

Moon aspectsJupiter and Saturn:

 

    There is another side toyou as well, a rather introverted, self-contained, even pessimistic side whichtempers your good cheer and generosity, as discussed below.

 

Moon OppositionSaturn:

 

    Some rather acute fears ofbeing excluded, rejected, left out in the cold, or separated from loved onescan make you either extremely cautious about getting close to people or holdtightly to whoever gives you any warmth or security. You tend to withhold andclamp down on many of your feelings and your needs for nurturing and security,perhaps feeling they are unacceptable or will never be satisfied. Learning tobe open and trust others, to nurture yourself are important for you. Yourearliest years, especially your relationship with your mother, will determinewhether you will overcome your fears or retreat behind a mask ofself-sufficiency and indifference.

 

Moon SextilePluto:

 

     You have very deepfeelings and profound attachments to people you care about. Your relationshipto your mother, sisters, daughters, and other females in your life is apt to beincredibly close and intense. You may be easily manipulated too, when it comesto one of these important relationships, because you're so emotionally investedin it.

 

Venus in Aries:

 

    Your love feelings anddesires are easily aroused but it may be difficult to sustain your romanticinterest in a relationship after the initial, exciting "chase andconquest". You enjoy a partner who is dynamic and alive, someone with astrong independent streak, and you do not like things to become too peaceful orpredictable in the love arena. You want to see sparks fly once in awhile, evenif that means instigating a fight.

 

Venus in 10thhouse:

 

     Promoting beauty, thearts, or entertainment can make you very happy. You want to contributesomething positive and loving to the world at large and you want to berecognized for your beauty, artistic gifts, or loving generosity. You may"marry" your work - that is, be more involved in your career than inyour private life. You are a natural hostess or diplomat.

 

Venus SquareJupiter:

 

    You share freely whateveryou have, and your friends know they can always count on your generosity andsupport, both emotional and material. Your good-hearted acceptance andtolerance of others' foibles goes a long way in maintaining harmony in your relationships.You also have a lazy streak and sometimes avoid confronting difficult issues inrelationships simply because it seems like too much trouble and too petty. Youlike to socialize and will use any excuse to celebrate with friends. You cannottolerate too much restriction by your love partner, and encourage yourpartner's freedom as well.

 

Venus SquareJupiter and Venus Square Pluto:

 

    In contrast to theabove-mentioned open, tolerant, live-and-let-live policy you have in yourpersonal and social relationships, you have another, far more demanding andcompulsive side when you are emotionally involved. You may become obsessed withhaving great material comfort, especially if you are unfulfilled romantically.

 

Venus SquarePluto:

 

    You experience powerful,compelling emotional and sexual attractions, and you may feel that you havelittle choice or control over your desires. You have an intense need for loveand may be emotionally greedy or insatiable. Your love life is passionate andoften tumultuous and painful as well. Jealousy, power struggles, orpossessiveness can become areas of conflict in your relationships. Positively,you can be unusually creative and bring about beneficial and healing changes inthe lives of others, motivated by your deeply felt love.

 

Venus ConjunctSun/MC

 

    Others are drawn to youbecause of your affable, social and appealing disposition, and you are likelyto have many pleasant and friendly relationships. You also have strong artisticinclinations and may consider a creative field as a profession or hobby.

 

Venus ConjunctMercury/Saturn

 

    Chronically discontented,you are likely to be somewhat unstable in matters of love and affection. Youtend to be on the defensive and fear rejection and lack of acceptance. You haveto learn to overcome your fears and general shyness with people.

 

Venus OppositionMars/Neptune

 

    You have a propensity forclandestine and secret love affairs and tend to keep your relationships hidden.You could find yourself in some peculiar relationships where you or yourpartner could be reluctant to make an external commitment.

 

 

 

 

Chapter 6: Drive and Ambition: How You Achieve YourGoals

 

Mars in Sagittarius:

 

    You are aspiring,enterprising, and forever following some bright and distant star, planning somenew venture or investigating new potentials. You are definitely "upwardlymobile" in either a material or spiritual sense (or both). You aim highand are not content simply with a quiet, secure existence. You like to stretchyour limits, to see how far you can go, and to take risks. You are a positivethinker, expect success for yourself, and are philosophical about failures. Youare flexible and bounce back from disappointment rather quickly, usually withanother hopeful new idea you want to try. Your enthusiasm and confidence arecontagious and enable you to enlist the aid and support you need for yourprojects. However, you sometimes promise more than you can actually achieve,because you are overly optimistic or pay insufficient attention to thepracticalities involved.

 

    You also tend to getdistracted and to have too many things going at once. Although it is verydifficult for you, there are times when you simply must develop commitment,perseverance, and persistence in order to make your dreams and goals a concretereality. Too often you fall short of what you could attain because you areunwilling to persist through the difficult or less exciting times.

 

    You also enjoy competitionand usually do not take it too seriously. Sports and entrepreneurial endeavorsare good ways to channel your energy.

 

Mars in 5thhouse:

 

     You play vigorouslyand enjoy competitive games and physical rough-and-tumble activities. Athleticsand/or physical activities have great appeal for you. You take the initiativein sports and also in romance: you are ardent in pursuing ANYTHING you desire.

 

Jupiter SextileSaturn:

 

     You have the patienceand the stamina to realize your visions and bring them down to earth, a finebalance between hard work and realism, and a positive, hopeful spirit. You growthrough following systems and plans, and taking one step at a time. Overnightsuccess or instant enlightenment is not what you aim for. Your patient,well-balanced approach gives you credibility with many different types ofpeople, and you are apt to gain an excellent reputation for being able to dobig things without overreaching or becoming pretentious.

 

Saturn TrinePluto:

 

    You dedicate yourselfwholeheartedly to a cause, sacrifice much, and eliminate all superfluousactivities and interests. Others find your approach too severe and areunwilling to go along with you in the difficult circumstances that you arewilling to tolerate. Your determination and capacity for self-denial often helpyou get through the rough spots to the goal you are striving for.

 

Neptune QuincunxMC:

 

     Your professionalgoals and long-range ambitions may be vague and difficult for you to define forquite a long time. Partly this is due to the fact that they are not very conventional,concrete, or worldly. You're apt to have more of a spiritual vocation orcalling. Healing, counseling, the ministry, music, art -- or some combinationthereof -- may well be part of your role in life. On the other hand, you maysimply be confused and seemingly not ambitious at all in the professionalrealm.

 

 

 

 

Chapter 7: Growth and Expansion: Areas That You Enjoy

 

Jupiter in Capricorn:

 

     You have an innateshrewdness, and the ability to develop a clear strategy and follow it carefullyin order to reach your goals. You also have a natural sense of order,structure, and self-discipline. You are likely to excel, both because you areambitious and because it is very important to you to do a professional job, nomatter what field you are in, or how humble the task.

 

Jupiter in 6thhouse:

 

     You have a positiveand constructive attitude toward work and what other people might considerdrudgery. You enjoy helping people improve their lives, and the more serviceyou render, the more benefits and rewards you find coming back to you.Promoting health in some manner is a very good avenue for you.

 

JupiterOpposition Pluto:

 

    Your fortunes are apt tofluctuate wildly throughout your life. You can make and lose fortunes rathereasily, due to your risk-taking, speculating, and rather adventurousentrepreneurial endeavors. No matter how modest or "normal" yourappearance, you are actually inordinately ambitious, and lucky. You need alarge international arena in order to fulfill your ambitious and capacities.World travel and foreign exchange figures prominently in this.

 

JupiterOpposition Moon/Mercury

 

    You have a cheerful,optimistic nature and present yourself to the world in an open and invitingmanner. You are enterprising and always strive to enlarge the range of yourideas. You have the ability to create an entertaining social atmosphere.

 

 

 

 

Chapter 8: Areas That Challenge You Or Are DifficultFor You

 

Saturn in Pisces:

 

     You often have asense of longing or homesickness for something you cannot name or specify, andyou may have both a great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism andparapsychology.

 

     Overcoming feelingsof fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or oversensitivity is an important taskfor you.

 

Saturn in 9thhouse:

 

     Your attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics isvery conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, you maybelieve in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for anyidea presented to you. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. Onthe other hand, you may tenaciously cling to your grand philosophical ormetaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open andreceptive to others' insights and perspectives.

 

     Your overall outlookon life is serious, and you may feel that life or God will punish you if you donot watch your step!

 

SaturnOpposition Mars/Pluto

 

    You are not afraid of hardwork and leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of you objectives. You have astrong desire to overcome any difficulties or obstacles in your way and will dothis at all cost, even if it means having to use force.

 

 

 

    Now we will discusspatterns of behavior which you instinctively and habitually revert to whenunder stress - a mostly unconscious process and one which you are apt to overdobecause it is so familiar and thus easy for you. The direction you need tofollow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is alsodescribed.

 

N. Node inSagittarius:

 

    It is easy for you tobecome distracted from your purpose by the multitude of interesting choices,possibilities, and options available to you. You need to develop singlemindedness and focus. Until you direct your attention to some of the bigquestions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is reallyimportant to me and essential to my happiness?", you are apt to dabble, toscatter your energies in many directions engaging in activities which areentertaining but which are ultimately not fruitful or nourishing.

 

    Having an overall vision for your life and aligningyour daily activities so that they support rather than detract from your largerpurpose, is a significant step in your unfoldment.

 

N. Node in 5thhouse:

 

    The arena you are mostlikely to wrestle with these issues is in playful self-expression, games orsports, and creativity. Try to develop any artistic, expressive, creativepotentials you feel you possess, utilizing the qualities described above.

 

N. NodeOpposition Sun/Asc.

 

    You have a very obligingmanner and are always in search for new contacts. You are able to identify withpeople quite easily and probably will make many friends who can be of help toyou.

Pluto in 12thhouse:

Psychoanalysis, investigating your dreams, and other methods ofuncovering secrets are very interesting to you. You may be exceptionallyperceptive intuitively or psychically. Your emotions and subconscious energiesare complex, and periodic transformations and personal crises are sprinkledliberally throughout your lifetime.

 

Uranus ConjunctMercury/Venus

 

    You are very lively andhave the ability to enjoy every moment. Creative, inventive and colorful, youhave a lot of ideas and would make a good public speaker with quick answers toany questions. You like change and are always ready to try something new.

 

Neptune OppositionJupiter/Uranus

The Subconscious and Emotional Drive of Your Age Group

 

Pluto in Cancer:

 

    You are part of a 25 yeargroup of people who have strong feelings for home and country. You are asentimental group, and feel deeply attached to your family and your country.You cling to the familiar, are distrustful and fearful of different cultures,and consequently a great deal of racial and ethnic prejudice is common amongyour age group.

 

    Your need for closeness andtogetherness runs very deep and causes you to bond closely to family membersand old friends, and also makes you prone to be involved in mass movements andgroup activities because they feed your largely subconscious need foracceptance and support by others. Unfortunately, your age group is easilycarried away by a group frenzy and many of you often lack the integrity orcourage to think and act in an independent and rational way.

 

    Your generation is veryemotional and tenderhearted. Many of your group sacrificed a great deal to helpyour children or other family members, while other generations are unwilling togive as much as you have. Your tender feelings and regard for the well-being ofothers can spur your age group to make contributions towards the feeding of thehungry, care for the neglected, and support for the needy, particularlychildren and mothers. You are a group of people with a strong heart and ahelpful hand. Many of you have parents and/or children who are not nearly assupportive and helpful; many of your contributions are not completelyappreciated or even go unnoticed.
