You are a passionate and emotional person. As a result of the preponderance of emotion, sensation, and feeling in your psychological make-up, you have acquired a deep sense of your individuality and uniqueness. You sometimes feel “different” – set apart from others. In order to justify this idea of yourself, you attempt to behave differently, to impress the crowd, and the product of your efforts is usually rather grandiose and exaggerated. It’s a self-perpetuating bind, because your impressive deeds usually earn recognition for you, and reinforce your self-assurance and your certainty that you do indeed stand head and shoulders above the rest. You sometimes make an attempt to bluff and show off with an emotional display. You like to take risks and give people advice. Nevertheless, at the basis of your conduct, there is a feeling of social anxiety, which is probably unconscious or unconfessed. You may fear being absorbed or enslaved by society. The positive side of this unconscious anxiety is that it drives you to create, to counteract the deeply felt effects of time and the masses on your ego. By creating something, you can make your own individual mark on the world; you can organize it to reflect your own image, instead of allowing yourself to be submerged by it. The preceding comments about creating the world in your own image are strong indications that you seek to identify with your superego. The difference between your ideal of yourself and the individual you know yourself to be in truth, measured in terms of your social recognition or the recognition of your creations (children, works of art, etc.), will determine your state of mind. It is therefore important for you to make these images match to a certain extent, to reduce the gap as much as possible. The psychological dynamic described earlier explains many of the pluses and minuses in your personality. Your dignity and self-assurance may border on vanity; your strong instinct and ambition combined with your somewhat exaggerated individualism incline you to be self-focused. You may be proud, but you are also courageous, determined, and generous. You have the skills of an educator or an artist; moreover, you are mysteriously lucky.
5 Minutes for Mom Susan Due to the influence of Libra rising, you treasure harmony and will actively, if not passionately, strive to achieve it, both in your social life (in your relationships with others) and in your private life (in terms of art, grace, and physical beauty).

Still, you’ll do well to choose your partners carefully, and avoid rushing into marriage just to placate someone else’s anxiety. Your sense of grace and beauty must also find an outlet, such as dance, if you are not to feel frustrated. Social and sociable, you commit yourself entirely to your relationships and may take great pains to restore peace in your surroundings or mend bruised feelings in those around you.

You were born on the third day after the new moon, a lunar type known as a soli-lunar. This configuration gives you a subjective character, somewhat impulsive and sometimes emotive. Generally, you don’t see the world in objective terms; instead, you base your attitude on the feelings various situations arouse inside you. Likewise, in human relationships, you tend to project your imaginary reality onto others instead of seeing them for what they are. As a result, your judgements and reasoning are sometimes deprived of perspective. You may want to make an effort to refrain from overinterpreting other people’s actions, because, being the product of your imagination in most cases, your interpretations are mistaken. If you apply yourself to listening more openly, people may reveal their deeper motivations. You’ll be happier and more effective as a result.
