Your ruling planet Mercury is associated with commerce, transportation, and communication; thus, you should not discount the power of your words.
"That is really intriguing, please tell me more." It's clear that you're having a great time.
Even if you could place more weight on deeds than words, you have to admit that the latter don't harm.
You like it when others take an interest in you and aren't hesitant to express their enthusiasm. It's not a little thing when someone gives you a compliment straight out.
You're a romantic at heart, therefore you spend a lot of time helping other people, which you don't mind doing since it comes easily to you.
But when someone really appreciates your good deeds and tells you so, that's when the reward really hits home.
It's common knowledge that you take risks in your romantic endeavours and other areas of life.
True love makes you swoon, but only when the other person is forthright and honest about how they feel.
Some may be surprised to learn how important words are to you, but it's clear they have a special place in your life.
To that end, it's quite helpful when someone validates you and expresses their true feelings to you.
