Alexis Gosselin is trying to overcome her feelings of insecurity. To do so, she needs a home: a dwelling, a territory, or perhaps a safe space or setting where she can rest, and let down her systems of defense against the outer world, which she finds aggressive and hostile. She is ready to make some sacrifices in order to maintain and consolidate the structure she has chosen. True inner security, based on real knowledge of herself, her abilities, and her shortcomings, her strengths and her weaknesses would no doubt be most effective and would allow her to remain open to the varieties of experience offered by the world.
Alexis Gosselin’s personality and behavior are liable to be disrupted by a contradiction between the masculine and feminine archetypes ruling his psyche. Because his sensitivity is in conflict with his determination, his attitude and performance may be moody, fluctuating, and uncertain. Usually, he has the feeling he has to make superhuman efforts to succeed in assuaging his yearnings and fulfilling his ambitions. His unconscious, sensitive side often disapproves of his conscious endeavors and stealthily works to defeat them, causing crucial omissions, mistakes, and gaps which effectively sabotage his plans. In his relationships, the images he builds up and projects on the other are contradictory. As a result, any bond, even if it is pleasant and positive, also grates on his nerves. He finds it dissatisfying and irritating at the same time.
You are very sensitive and receptive and tend to live in osmosis with your surroundings. Your individuality almost seems to be diluted in a flood of sensations and impressions which are continually washing over you, and you sometimes find it difficult to communicate your feelings to other people. This tide of emotion is a source of inspiration and intuition, but your fluid inner structure and organization sometimes make it difficult for you to grasp the essence of your dreams and share them with other people. You are not at all combative, and this tends to hinder your efforts to fit into society and assert yourself productively. You are likely to prefer fantasy to reality, but your refusal to abandon your unattainable dreams is a psychological trap you have fallen into without realizing it. You must understand that by running away from your obligations and commitments, you only increase the feelings of guilt which made reality so distasteful in the first place. Once you free yourself from this pernicious process, you have a great deal of potential for fulfilling yourself in the outer world, either by devoting yourself to some sort of social work or by cultivating your considerable artistic talents.
You have an inalienable awareness of the void and the vanity of existence. You are sometimes disoriented and deconstructed by an unknowable, unconscious force, and tend to ignore or disparage the superficial pleasures and pains of daily life. You prefer to dive into the depths of human experience as deeply as your intellectual, emotional, and spiritual capacities permit. Grappling with your “fundamental nature,” with the deepest and most primitive part of yourself, you are sometimes aghast at the discovery of the sheer power of your instincts and feel an imperious need to cope with them. This special consciousness you have been endowed with is somewhat beyond the bounds of conventional schools of human understanding and thought and may be a source of identity problems for you at the outset. It is not easy for you to recognize yourself in any social or narcissistic models, or identify with any existing roles or attitudes, so you sometimes find yourself forced to assert and express your own identity in a way which may strike your contemporaries as strangely intense if not eccentric.
Alexis Gosselin feels a great deal of energy trying to maintain her independence and freedom. She is skittish when it comes to any deep involvement in a relationship, so she tends to live more easily on friendships than on love. Alexis is extremely socially-minded, but idealistic.

You are a warm and communicative associate. Indeed, some people find you generous almost to a fault! You give of yourself and your resources unstintingly. Paradoxically, there are times when you are self-focused. You react instinctively, without taking the trouble to analyze a given situation, and are prone to misjudge. As a result, your everyday life may be riddled with a whole variety of practical problems. Indeed, you sense a conflict between your social life and your family and will sometimes find it hard to fulfill yourself in both spheres at the same time. Your attitude toward your private life may inhibit your ambitions for social or career expansion; at worst, society (the law) may impinge on your private life. You should be careful not to project your personal problems onto your partner. If, instead, the two of you analyzed the problem, you might be able to find opportunities to resolve it together.
Although your demeanor is cool and distant, you have a great sensitivity. In some cases, your rather austere and rigid behavior and your refusal to yield too readily to sentimentality discourage others from being too demonstrative of their tenderness and affection. You have spells of melancholy in which you do not feel worthy of being loved and tend to forbid yourself any emotional fulfillment whatsoever. An austere or somewhat traumatic childhood experience may be the source of this behavior. It is difficult for your inner self to be detached from this past life, and you sometimes have trouble reconciling the image you have of yourself as an adult with the one you acquired back then. The idea you have of yourself as an individual is related to the image your parents projected onto you as a child. Nevertheless, the past is history, and you are now an adult. Through self-work, you can rid yourself of these phantoms. You have the ability to overcome your mistakes, as well as great endurance and will power to achieve your goals. Nevertheless, you must not repress your sensitivity in order to succeed.

Alexis Gosselin: Due to your extreme sensitivity and irrepressible imagination, you sometimes have trouble distinguishing dreams from reality. Although your bubbling imagination provides an abundant source of inspiration for creative or spiritual evolution, it tends to be less helpful and positive in matters that concern your self-assertion as responsible and self-sufficient. Although your psychic faculties drive you to fulfill yourself through artistic activities like painting, drawing, music, or poetry, it may be difficult for you to market your talents in terms of a career.

You are an individual who is complex, full of contradictions. Because you sometimes feel vulnerable emotionally, you try to control not only your own feelings and urges, but may also strive to manipulate those of your partners. You aspire to a profound and enduring spiritual unity, but at the same time, the idea of abandoning yourself and yielding to the other terrifies you. This anguish may be a source of rather extreme behavior patterns and a somewhat self-focused attitude which could damage the relationship. Because you are guarded and somewhat secretive, you tend to be suspicious and are especially uneasy about spontaneous intimacy, although you are fascinated by sexuality. Within the privacy of the couple, you will not express your feelings unless you are subject to some tension. Life may be peppered with frequent crises and feuds, arguments and spats which usually act as erotic provocation. This derivation of eroticism from anxiety tends to be one of the fundamental characteristics of your emotional and sexual functioning. As a result, you are likely to be attracted by stormy and complicated relationships.
