Danny Gonzalez’s personality is mind-oriented. He understands and relates to the world around him via the medium of thought and intellect. Memorization, comparison, analysis, and the verbalization of his mental imagery are his favorite activities. He seeks to extend his personality by a mental outreach to a multitude of new ideas and factors, becoming acquainted with an ever-increasing variety of facets of human nature. Thus, language and symbolic expression, written or oral, are his primary resources in life, although they are also potential pitfalls. His eloquence, wit, and verve, his mastery of language, unquestionably give him power over other people (via communication) and things (science and technique). But taken to extremes, this faculty may lead to incoherency.
It is thus vital for him to find an outlet for his flow of verbal expression, he must explain, communicate, and speak. If it is dammed up, he will undoubtedly suffer. His flow of words is the expression of his vital energy, the proof that he is alive and well. If he is forced to be silent, he would be cut off from the bonds that hold him together. A kind of duality or split personality might emerge… remember Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde? “They” were a classic case. For all of the above reasons, he is naturally gregarious and sociable.
He makes friends quickly and easily. His contacts and networks are important to him, because they enable him to evolve. They are a source of self-fulfillment and identification. Any form of play is also important to him, and only severe depression will deprive him of his playfulness. He sometimes amuses himself by acting out a variety of roles on the stage of life, just for the fun of it. His animation and wit give him a talent for improvisation and adaptation. However, adaptability is a two-bladed sword. He is liable to find himself in a superficial bind, having jettisoned certain important ideas in order to move about more freely. He is also sensitive, but his emotions and feelings are sometimes subject to the scrutiny and censorship of his intellect. Thus, he cannot free himself to the strength of great passions and energies without idealizing them to a certain degree and giving them intellectual resonance. Wary of his irrational instincts and urges, he tends to control or repress them.
But he will do well to learn that the intellect is not omnipotent, especially where instinct is concerned. Inhabiting a complex inner world, he sometimes feels vulnerable, due to his emotionalism and sensitivity to the aggressions of the outer world. Because he relies first and foremost on his adaptability and agility to wriggle out of trouble, he may, on certain occasions, make rather dubious compromises with himself – all the more likely if his moral fiber is made of wax, as is often the case, instead of steel. The weaknesses he must overcome are instability, wishy-washiness, a lack of determination and coherence in his thought.
Due to the influence of Sagittarius (the Centaur-Archer) rising, I, like the half-animal, half-human Centaur, have a dual, ambivalent nature, vagrant and capricious. It is natural for me to be simultaneously conventional and rebellious. I can happily submit to society and convention for a time, only to emerge committed to rugged individualism, or vice-versa. My inner attachment to an ideal of liberty and emancipation does not prevent me from adopting a sociable, pleasant attitude at social events. This dichotomy in my personality grants me such useful social skills as adaptability and poise, but inside, I face a quest for my true identity and consciousness. My primary psychological task is to maintain the harmony reigning between the two entities dwelling within me. I must not limit myself to being either one or the other. I will achieve true psychic and existential stability by personifying a blend of these two behavioral tendencies. When I am comfortable with my individuality, I can radiate optimism and energy; flexible and elastic, I will delight in any change or unpredictability, without losing sight of my long-term purposes. Eminently social, I will express my true nature by becoming deeply involved with groups and taking on duties and responsibilities as a member. I will enjoy my ability to infuse them with my idealistic enthusiasm and visions for the future. My special gifts for dealing with energy make me apt to occupy a position of great social responsibility.
Danny Gonzalez is highly aware of psychological, metaphysical, or mystical questions. The future may hold a complete psychological metamorphosis in store for him.
Friendship and membership in groups are vital to Danny Gonzalez’s personal self-fulfillment.
At the time of Danny Gonzalez’s birth, his rising sign was located in Sagittarius (the Archer), while the sun was passing through the sign of Gemini (the Twins). A summary of the various clues mentioned above provide his personality profile. The following key words capture the essence of his character and indicate certain contradictions which may be sources of tension:
Impetuosity – Need for contact – Enthusiasm – Mental agitation – Group spirit – Frivolity – Impressionability – Dilettantism – Analytical mind – Worldly concerns – Communication – Projection – Inner duality.
An accurate sense of observation, keen intuition, an ability to analyze and recompose, and a far-reaching vision which integrates universal concerns: these are his chief mental qualities. However, these talents are part of a dissociated temperament, a personality whose duality gives it a multitude of facets. As a result, he displays unpredictable behavior which alternates between contradictory attitudes.
Serious at times and lighthearted at others, his enterprise and determination will yield without warning to a giddy nonchalance. His responsible, group-oriented nature will suddenly be overshadowed by signs of mental if not physical escape and absence.
He must become aware of his opposing traits in order to achieve the stability necessary to take full advantage of his many qualities.
By consciously rewarding one or the other of the tendencies he has recognized in himself, he will find inner peace. His environment will become less influential and upsetting; his efforts will be available for application to a specific goal, which will be all the more rewarding because he has chosen it with new awareness.
Born in the three days after the rising of the new moon, Danny Gonzalez is said to be a “new moon” lunar type. This “soli-lunar” configuration gives him a subjective character, somewhat impulsive and sometimes emotive. Generally, Danny does not see the world in objective terms; instead, he bases his attitude on the feelings various situations arouse inside him.
Likewise, in human relationships, Danny tends to project his imaginary reality onto others instead of seeing them for what they are. As a result, his judgements and reasoning are sometimes deprived of perspective.
Danny may want to make an effort to refrain from overinterpreting other people’s actions, because, being the product of his imagination in most cases, his interpretations are mistaken. If he applies himself to listening more openly, people may reveal their deeper motivations. He’ll be happier and more effective as a result.
