You have a fine mind and though you haven't had much formal education you have developed your brain to a great extent. You are extremely devoted to your family and would let no stone go unturned if you could help your friends. People appreicate your good nature, and your true friends are legion. Your generosity has become a by-word amongst your friends. Don't overdo it.
