Relationship Issues. You have trouble meeting people, trouble with commitment. You are distant from siblings; your parents are overbearing or intrusive. Your children disappoint. Your parents are aging and need attention.
Work Issues. You don't like your job but are hesitant to make a change. Your life is all work and no play. You are not earning enough money. You dislike or cannot communicate effectively with your bosses.
Martial/Partner Issues. You and your partner argue frequently. Your relationship is volatile. You don't know how to talk to one another. You are not sexually compatible or have other sexual issues.
