Dixie D’Amelio is a fiery, emotional creature. As a result of the preponderance of emotion, sensation, and feeling in her psychological make-up, she has acquired a deep sense of her individuality and uniqueness. She sometimes feels “different” – set apart from others. In order to justify this idea of herself, she attempts to behave differently, to impress the crowd, and the product of her efforts is usually rather grandiose and exaggerated.
It’s a self-perpetuating bind, because her impressive deeds usually earn recognition for her, and reinforce her self-assurance and her certainty that she does indeed stand head and shoulders above the rest. She sometimes makes an attempt to bluff and show off with an emotional display. She likes to take risks and give people advice. Nevertheless, at the basis of her conduct, there is a feeling of social anxiety, which is probably unconscious or unconfessed. She may fear being absorbed or enslaved by society.
The positive side of this unconscious anxiety is that it drives her to create, to counteract the deeply felt effects of time and the masses on her ego. By creating something, she can make her own individual mark on the world; she can organize it to reflect her own image, instead of allowing herself to be submerged by it. The preceding comments about creating the world in her own image are strong indications that she seeks to identify with her superego. The difference between her ideal of herself and the individual she knows herself to be in truth, measured in terms of her social recognition or the recognition of her creations (children, works of art, etc.), will determine her state of mind. It is therefore important for her 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 her personality. Her dignity and self-assurance may border on vanity; her strong instinct and ambition combined with her somewhat exaggerated individualism incline her to be self-focused. She may be proud, but she is also courageous, determined, and generous. She has the skills of an educator or an artist; moreover, she is mysteriously lucky.
Dixie D’Amelio wants to wield power and enjoy social prestige. She feels quite at home in the modern world others find frightening.
Dixie D’Amelio has a strong personality; she is sometimes a little self-centered. Her fate is in her own hands!
At the time of my birth, Dixie’s rising sign was located in Aquarius (the Water Bearer), while the sun was passing through the sign of Leo (the Lion). A summary of the various clues mentioned above provide her personality profile. The following key words capture the essence of her character and indicate certain contradictions which may be sources of tension:
Independence – Narcissism – Rebelliousness – Determination – Originality – Pride and self-assurance – Fluctuation – Superiority – Irritability – Brilliance – Inventive spirit – Generosity – Sense of paradox – Optimism.
Dixie’s strong personality and straightforward nature displays marked egocentric tendencies. She is convinced of her internal greatness, and considers that she is predestined to accomplish some extraordinary purpose in life.
Generous and idealistic, Dixie has faith in herself and her ideas, and often figures she alone is capable of doing a good job. She tends to be somewhat eccentric, refusing common usage and custom. She will not hesitate to contradict or challenge anyone she does not agree with.
Although she finds competition stimulating, her common-sense deficit often limits the scope of her accomplishments. Very proud and short-tempered, Dixie must nevertheless learn how to deal with other people and accept criticism. Only then will she be able to accomplish the great mission with which she is invested.
Born in the seven to ten days after the full moon rose, Dixie is of the “last quarter” lunar type. As a result, her personality is fairly independent and self-sufficient. Her ideas are original and often bold, but, to her dismay, do not often garner a majority of followers.
Her sense of humor is her best communications tool, but she often switches to a more severe tone which breaks her charm over her audience, and her methods do not always please the masses.
Her lack of flexibility hinders her strategies and projects, and she would gain by developing her sense of diplomacy and tact. Although she is not unduly attached to success, because she is so used to being ahead of her time, her failures take a psychological toll on her. Because each setback wears her down a little more, she should try to avoid further disappointments by conforming to contemporary reality a little more closely.
