Alessandro Borghese has a confidence in himself that sometimes falters. He tries to compensate for this weakness by insisting on his authority over others, but with the people he is emotionally committed to, his nagging feelings of insecurity prevent him from expressing his generosity and love fully. His extreme independence sometimes hides an inability to abandon himself and a lack of assurance.
You may be subject to mood swings, going from phases of frenzy combined with a feeling of omnipotence and exaltation to phases of apathy and inertia. During your “highs,” your behavior is vigorous and dynamic, but it is also likely to be somewhat excessive. These periods tend to be interspersed with “lows,” phases of sluggishness and inhibition, which compensate for your immense need to assert yourself as an individual. How can you find a way out of this vicious cycle which uses up so much of your energy? You would have to understand that the source of your attitudes and behavior is an unconscious desire for power. We suggest that you meditate upon power, skills, mastery, challenge, desire, and need, your brothers (or brother substitutes, such as friends, cousins, or classmates) – who are key figures – and your adversaries. This should enlighten you. Of course, once you have a clear awareness of your career ambitions and profound desires, you are sure to have plenty of energy to accomplish them.
Alessandro Borghese does not always feel in tune with society’s rules and conventions. The mask of sociability most well adapted people wear is difficult for him to assume, and it is hard for him to act out the roles expected of him as a normal member of the community. The usual social values and rewards, like money, respect, and prestige, only mildly interest him. His refusal or inability to play the social game may make it hard for him to find a job, which may have negative consequences on his financial and legal status. Reluctant and unwilling to adapt to the demands of social life, he sometimes unwittingly makes mistakes when a new project is in the planning stages. For example, he may leave gaps in a job application, botch up an interview with a prospective employer, or make a big mistake when bidding for a contract. But his financial difficulties may clear up when his emotional ones do.
Alessandro Borghese is winning and attractive. He has an appetite for intense emotional experiences, especially in terms of his relationships. Enjoying the power of his personal appeal, he easily controls his emotions and only rarely reveals the true depth of his feelings. Because his instincts take precedence over his sensitivity, he is capable of becoming jealous, possessive, and even rather harsh, without meaning to. More of a flirt than a voluptuary, he is attentive to desire. As a result, his love life will sometimes be casual and complicated.
Alessandro Borghese is emotional and tends to react suddenly and excessively as soon as his sensitivity is touched. Although he feels that his independence, freedom, and self-sufficiency are fundamental values, he is sometimes frustrated by his need to rely on his family or friends. Moreover, he does not always grant the freedom of other people the same respect as his own. Likewise, he is sometimes angered by expressions of maternal tenderness, as if he feared that it would doom him to eternal dependency. His ambivalent behavior, full of jagged edges, may be traced back to the relationship he had with his mother or a mother figure. Although he was dependent on them, they may have rejected him. Now this attitude is extended to any situation in which his sensitivity comes into play and emotional bonds are liable to form. To ward off his feelings of dependency, he tends to become destructive. Based on denial, his reactions are sometimes fierce, impulsive, and excessive, erratic, or contradictory.
Alessandro Borghese is sometimes afraid to love – the world of his feelings is characterized by a certain chill and restraint. But he is not unfeeling; on the contrary, his sensitivity is so delicate that he is careful to protect it.

He is generally attracted to original people who defy norms, standards, and classifications, and expect them to amaze and fascinate him. Love is often a matter of luck with him.
