He has the type of mind that works well with others, but tends to be easily impressed.

Major Depositor: Moon: Considerations of home and family are often uppermost in his mind. He arrives at decision and major courses of action more on the basis of emotions than rational deliberation. He is emotionally very sensitive and tends to take on the emotional coloring of persons and events surrounding him. He may, in fact be quite shy, as defense against these influences.

Venus Preceding Sun : He tends to be impulsive and spontaneous, responsive and eager in relationships, which can sometimes lead to disappointment, leading in turn to his adopting a "cold" or indifferent attitude towards others as a mask. His personality is directed by both the intellect and the emotions, but primarily by the intellect.

Practical Director : Venus: He is concerned with the value and ideals behind his work, insisting on making a personal impression on everything he touches.
