Histoire. Né vers 800, près de Limoges, Saint Rodolphe, plus connu sous le nom de Raoul, devient évêque de Bourges.

Caractère. Plutôt introvertis, ils attachent beaucoup d'importance à leur vie intérieure et spirituelle. Discrets, peu expansifs, ce sont des solitaires. Travailleurs, volontaires, opiniâtres, ils vont jusqu'au bout de leur entreprise. En amour, ils sont possessifs, voire jaloux. Bons et généreux, leur morale est stricte. Ils ont peu d'amis, mais les choisissent avec soin et leur fidélité est inébranlable.
