The specificity of my personality can be summed up by my nostalgic yearning for my roots – a “paradise lost” which is also a source of energy and vitality. My power is linked to memory. I inhabit a present which draws sustenance from the past, from continuity and timelessness. The power of memory can either be dynamic or static. The consciousness of an inaccessible past can either immobilize me in melancholy and nostalgia, or shine as an ideal which motivates me to recreate a new harmony. My attitude and approach to the past are of key importance. If I think of it as a refuge, my obsession with it may be such that my progress is impeded. If, on the contrary, I think of it as a starting point or launching pad for my comprehension of the human condition, I will integrate it into my self-realization process. I possess a potential for great maturation and wisdom.
I am relatively slow-moving and may feel protected from the outer world by an armor of education, family surroundings (my most cherished environment), and social status. For this reason, I tend to limit the scope of my activities to a single well-defined sphere, and, within the boundaries I have established, release the entire spectrum of my rich and varied emotional expression. Sometimes I may feel overwhelmed by the prospect of situations which will introduce me to unfamiliar factors and elements; I see them as intrusions. Before I judge an event, a person, or a thing, I attempt to absorb it into my private universe. Of a fairly subjective and introverted turn of mind, I define everything in terms of the sensation it arouses in me as my consciousness embraces it. This predominance of sensation gives my extreme sensory finesse. My perceptions are intense, keen, penetrating right to the heart of people and things. My imagination, which is a function of my perceptions, is also lively, colorful, and prolific.
Because I am sometimes self-centered, attentive to and protective of my inner self, I may tend to withdraw into my shell when I encounter aggression from the outer world. As a result, I may sometimes become distant and secretive. My tendency to be rather short-tempered and easily offended, a classic flaw, is also the consequence of my need for protection and security. Despite my sensitivity, and my ability to be genuinely virtuous, I am not always gentle. My outbreaks of hostility are all the more wounding because of their rarity. However, more than aggressiveness, my stubbornness, slow insistence, and undying determination are the extremes which may complicate my life.
Once again, the family setting is vitally important to me. My attachment to my family in general and my mother or a mother figure, in particular, is deep. The way I resolve (or has resolved) the transition to adulthood and independence will be crucial to my well-being, both in terms of my inner harmony (the sensation and sensitivity which comprise my identity) and in terms of my romantic relationships.
With Capricorn rising, Shane Dawson has a personality which may seem somewhat aloof, withdrawn, and introspective. In fact, Shane is not inclined to submit to anyone’s influence, and leads the independent, solitary life of the individualist. Sometimes skeptical (if not pessimistic) and resigned, Shane is still shrewd and objective in Shane’s insights and judgments. Shane has a fairly severe, “no-frills” vision of life, and only the pure, bare essence really matters to Shane. Impatient and sometimes restless, Shane sometimes chafes under the limits and restraints of social realities and convention. Fairly rebellious by nature, Shane sees Shane as striving for freedom from the bonds of earthly existence, which Shane finds confining. Shane’s personal stability tends to be founded on enduring values – philosophical or scientific facts in relation to spiritual values. Sometimes Shane seems detached and weary, or disillusioned, and Shane does not appreciate the social whirl. Shane does not readily express Shane’s feelings and emotions, but deep inside, Shane has great sensitivity. Shane’s sense of time, a true instinct, is very important. It rules and coordinates all of Shane’s activities.
Shane Dawson yearns for a purpose in life, even faraway or abstract.
Shane Dawson has a somewhat secretive personality; he is tempted if not compelled to live a somewhat withdrawn life.
At the time of Shane Dawson’s birth, his rising sign was located in Capricorn (the Goat), while the sun was passing through the sign of Cancer (the Crab). 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:
Sensitivity – Need for security – Imagination – Inhibition – Eccentricity – Application – Savings and thrift – Methodical mind – Suspicion – Forethought – Obstinacy – Loyalty – Premonition.
In appearance Shane Dawson is stable, serene, and even placid. But this thick outer shell merely conceals and protects a pool of exquisite sensitivity. He keeps his fertile imagination in check with cold and uncompromising logic, and represses the impulses from his heart with systematic wariness, or perhaps even painful denial. Persistent and serious, he generally takes action with calm, forethought, and method.
His concern for the future, which sometimes turns to anxiety, is expressed by a penchant for savings and parsimoniousness. This form of expression is reflected in his attitude toward his emotional bonds: he intends for them to be lasting and deep. Torn between his need for independence and his hunger for affection, he will go through a series of intense and exclusive involvements interspersed with periods of solitude he will find more or less unbearable. Maturity should bring him the wisdom to find a balance and reconcile the opposing tendencies tugging at him. At that point, all of his talents and faculties will find effective expression.
Born three and a half to seven days after the rising of the new moon, Shane Dawson is said to be a “crescent moon” lunar type. This “soli-lunar” configuration indicates that Shane may need to make an effort to free himself from the past. Something related to his childhood, parents, or ancestors is holding him back, impairing his effectiveness and could stand to be overcome.
Due to his past, Shane refuses tried-and-true models, is always fighting to justify his innovative viewpoints, and tends to break away from tradition. He is hardly ever aware that he is making career and lifestyle choices which are based on an urge to modify his relationship to society, and the rigid standards and models from the past.
