Taxonomy
Cucurbitales is one of the Orders in Fabidae, part of the Nitrogen‑fixing clade. The Order of the Cucurbitales in the Apg3 classification consists of the Families Apodanthaceae, Anisophylleaceae, Begoniaceae, Coriariaceae, Corynocarpaceae, Cucurbitaceae, Datiscaceae, Tetramelaceae.
In the Plant theory the Nitrogen‑fixing clade is in Phases 5 to 7. Cucurbitales is in Phase 7.
The chlorine element of Phase 7 can be seen in the fear of losing the family and friends, the holding onto the family.
The fluorine element is reflected in the fear of poverty, the desire to have a lot of money and the gambling with money to get more.
The Nitrogen element of Subphase 5 exaggerates the desire to make money and the fear of poverty. The combination of Nitrogen and Chlorine is the expansion of water, as in the fruits of this family, huge fruit with enormous fluids, the largest fruits of the Plant kingdom. Some of the fruits are even exploding, like Ecballium elaterium.

Work, money, business.
They have a strong drive to make money, to have a good business, that earns a lot. They have a big fear of poverty. This gets exaggerated once they have lost money or their business has gone bankrupt. It can happen when they have been cheated in business and money is stolen from them. They always have a fear they will not have enough, that it is not enough for the future or for their pension.
They can work very hard to get things done, to make their business flourish. They feel that one has to attend to the business continuously in order to make it flourish. They can also let others work hard for them, making money by having employees work for them. They can do make investments for making more money. They can gamble on the stock market for bigger profits. Sometimes it can lead to a kind of gambling and they can lose much money.
They try to insure their possessions in all possible ways.

Family, home
They work hard for their family, making enough money to taking care of their children and family. Often they have a kind of family business, where many members of the family work together for the family income and wealth. The father, the leader of the group or family, can be quite domineering, expecting everyone to participate in the family business. They prefer to stay athome, their safe haven. They only travel for business. Their home is their castle, their safe investment for the future and for the family.

Mind
Fear: poverty; disease.
