She knows how to be very strong-willed, independent, to some extent egocentric, strives to be a leader and take the first place everywhere. But the feminine essence does not leave her: she is a dependent, vulnerable, emotional woman who wants to find her protector and be loved. She will reveal her secret only to the one chosen one, and for everyone else Denise will remain a strong leader without disadvantages.

In childhood Denise's high susceptibility is often the reason for her changeable mood. She will be torn between her aspirations to be the first and the best and her need for protection and safety. Eventually Denise will get over it and, closer to adolescence, will learn to be responsible for herself. Parents should be patient and take a sincere interest in the girl's affairs in order to strengthen her self-confidence.
