Burseraceae is one of the main Families in the Sapindales in the Apg3 classification.
In the Plant theory Burseraceae is placed in Subphase 3.
The members of this family have a strong cultural connection with religion, Christianity and spirituality, like Olibanum and Myrrh. This expresses their quality of devotion. They feel like special people who want to do their best to be seen as special. It makes them pleasing, adapting to the authorities, to higher beings, the angels and God. If they are unappreciated they feel a failure and in the end guilty, as if they have done something wrong or a crime.
They can get into a conflict between family matters and cultural rules. Or their own development as a person or artist comes into conflict with society and family.
