She represents the feminine strength and sensuality, the image of self-value, it is to learn to sustain and preserve material resources, to have the dignity to bow down to the power of the instincts and acknowledge. With her we come to full expression of ones sensuality, the value of the body and the pleasures which preserve and enrich life. A mature self-sufficient woman who organizes a comfortable home and family, one who takes responsibility willingly. She is generous, pragmatic and for the protection of her own wealth and territory she can destroy just as good as she can create. Happily she gives material help in demanding situations, generous and willing to indulge herself and others if it suits her purposes.
Inverse: A slave to her own generosity.
