They love anything that is new and novel oftentimes not finishing or following through. They can be restless, egotistical and impatience as they feel they must keep moving on. As friends, they will behave in a protecting manner as they are great warriors able to charge to anyone’s aid. These folks are romantic and passionate they take great strides to prove their worth to the object of their affections.
