Here we see a mature man. Often he has light brown hair and hazel eyes. He is most likely the astrological sign Cancer (June 21 - July 22).  He is fair, emotional,  moody,  changeable,  testing,  home loving,  kind,  considerate, focusing,  worrying and sometimes cranky or crabby. He can often be found as a doctor, minister, priest, metaphysician, cook, restaurant owner or even home maker.

He offers wise council or advice. He likes to be dominant or in charge. He takes responsibility and is available to offer help. He may be connected with a church in some way.

At this time in his life,  he may be prone to dishonesty,  and obviously has a stubborn streak. He is a powerful man,  and needs to be careful not to abuse his authority,  for it may bring disaster. Be cautious of losing either virtue or money.
