Common Traits of the Twyford's
The Twyford family have been linked to the planet Saturn causing them to be mysterious, egocentric and complex. They take up new activities enthusiastically but lack application, constantly requiring new interests. Moving from one interest to another as apparently purposelessly as a bumble bee buzzing around. Changing horses in the middle of the stream is another small quirk in the Twyford personality which makes decisivness, and carrying out a decision particularly hard for them. They refract changes in their own surroundings and can often become over optimistic and very self-centered. 114
