you're the opinionated humanitarians who carry around a soapbox to lecture to the world. You're spontaneous, innovative, rebellious, progressive, intuitive, driven by the need for freedom, original and detached. You can also be erratic, cold, dictatorial, egotistical, explosive, cunning and temperamental. You make many acquaintances but only have a few intimate friends. You have an innate desire to understand the universe and the reason behind everything. Filled with nervous energy, nature is your panacea. You debunk rules, love books and intellectual challenges. You're usually light years ahead of everyone else.                   

Occupations you excel in will give you some form of freedom. You could be an astrologer, astronomer, airline pilot or astronaut, an electrician, hypnotist, writer, master debater, ecologist, photographer, inventor, reformer, media personality, speaker or scientist.
