The greatest weakness of Aj is their sexual energy-their sensuality in particular. They must keep their spinal column flexible, for their energy seeks to be channeled. They will develop paranormal powers if they are able to use their internal energy. Self-discipline is their closest ally. Kan in this position indicates a spirit that is far along the path and needs to live intensely in order to grow. This intensity makes Aj either very desired or very disliked.
Kej in the right hemisphere provides exceptional imagination and inspiration. It tempers Aj’s usual pragmatism. Kej makes those born under Aj sensitive to art, particularly music and painting. They have an equal understanding of the feminine and masculine visions.
Kawoq in the left hemisphere influences the tendency to make big plans as well as to seek social justice and work for the well being of all. Aj are emotionally dependent on their partners and maintain strong ties with their family. Family comes first, and despite their sexual appetite, they seek fidelity. Family and close friends respect them.
Imox as they destiny sign creates conflict for Aj with their inner personality, manifesting as nonconformity. This sign brings unrestrained impulsiveness, and this enriches Aj’s lives with unusual experiences and make them particularly intrigued with mysticism, though they do not make this the focus of their life given their affinity for pragmatism and provable facts. Aj are passionate about the countryside, and this is where they will become highly spiritual and refined.

Famous People born under Aj: Barack Obama, Larry King, Quentin Tarantino, Maria Callas, Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung
