Once wild, the love of someone special tamed your heart, allowing you to become greater than the sum of your parts. Be careful, though. Even with the civilizing effect of your friends, your feral side can get you into serious trouble..

Never afraid of your own personality or sexuality, you are always in charge and make sure everyone knows it. However, don't be afraid to let go of the reigns every now and then. The universe won't collapse without your guidance.
