Alvaro Dias is trying to overcome his feelings of insecurity. To do so, he needs a home: a dwelling, a territory, or perhaps a safe space or setting where he can rest, and let down his systems of defense against the outer world, which he finds aggressive and hostile. He is ready to make some sacrifices in order to maintain and consolidate the structure he has chosen. True inner security, based on real knowledge of himself, his abilities, and his shortcomings, his strengths and his weaknesses would no doubt be most effective and would allow him to remain open to the varieties of experience offered by the world.
Alvaro Dias has a paternal complex and, as a result, some trouble finding his identity. Perhaps his father or a father figure was absent physically or emotionally during his childhood, which deprived him of the patterns or models which are usually helpful in structuring a personality. Because he might have lacked a particular sense of security which could be provided by a paternal presence, as well as the examples of behavior to follow in confronting the difficulties inherent in every life, he was forced to protect himself against negative influences and find his own system in order to grow and feel secure. Although this system was quite useful to him as a child, it has now settled in to such a degree that it interferes with his evolution. Psychological defense mechanisms and crutches which were once useful now encumber his mind or inhibit his developmental efforts. As a result, in certain situations, it is difficult for him to assert himself, and he tends to remain an awkward or passive observer. Because his authoritarian urges are mainly directed at himself rather than others, he sometimes feels guilty about his behavior. He judges himself severely, and sometimes punishes himself by setting difficult tasks for himself. Gradually, he should build up a strong inner discipline and acquire the strength to face the problems of existence in a detached and mature way.
Alvaro Dias’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 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.
You are a free thinker who is convinced that your most precious basic values are freedom and independence. You have thrown off what you perceive as the burden of the convention and customs of your social class and adopted an innovative lifestyle. Your passionate convictions sometimes trouble your relationships, as you may be an uncompromising partner. You would do well to learn to recognize your own limitations and accept the responsibilities you have to other people, or you are liable to find yourself continually embroiled in conflicting relationships. The roots of your somewhat extreme behavior probably lie in your relationship with your father or your teachers in childhood and adolescence. For one reason or another, you may have rejected the paternal image or refused to identify with your father, in the same way as you now refuse to adopt any values related to convention, tradition, or widespread usage. In every important life decision you make as an adult, you are forced to rely on yourself to elaborate the appropriate behavior, and the limits you must impose on your desires in relation to reality and the law.
Alvaro Dias generally tends to be motivated by activities which apply to social needs. He tends to give the best of himself in difficult situations which require crucial choices. His ability to concentrate and his gift for solving problems by deductive reasoning are his chief resources in crisis situations or at turning points in his life.
Alvaro Dias prefers to stick to a pre-established plan in order to avoid confusion and chaos. His behavior reflects this tendency. He will usually adhere to models that have been developed on the basis of logical or moral reasons. He may come across as a rigid person, but this is only an act of self-discipline. He is conscientious and able to thrive in a work environment, which is why he would make a successful scientist or high-tech designer.
Alvaro Dias has a sensitive personality. He may jump to conclusions, which could disrupt relationships, as well as career plans. He is subject to cyclical energy flows and goes from periods of feverish activity to periods of withdrawal and introspection. The aggressive element in his behavior may be explained by emotional problems he may have experienced in infancy: his mother, or a mother figure, may have had an energetic and volatile personality.
You are emotional and tend to react suddenly and excessively as soon as your sensitivity is touched. Although you feel that your independence, freedom, and self-sufficiency are fundamental values, you are sometimes frustrated by your need to rely on your family or friends. Moreover, you do not always grant the freedom of other people the same respect as your own. Likewise, you are sometimes angered by expressions of maternal tenderness, as if you feared that it would doom you to eternal dependency. Your ambivalent behavior, full of jagged edges, may be traced back to the relationship you had with your mother or a mother figure. Although you were dependent on them, they may have rejected you. Now this attitude is extended to any situation in which your sensitivity comes into play and emotional bonds are liable to form. To ward off your feelings of dependency, you sometimes tend to become destructive. Based on denial, your reactions might be fierce, impulsive, excessive, erratic, or contradictory.
Alvaro Dias often finds himself afraid to love. His emotions are restrained, and he’s careful not to let them get out of hand. He has a strong determination to control his feelings and keep them in line with reason, which can sometimes stand in the way of intimacy and happiness.
Alvaro Dias’ birth chart indicates an emotional function which is usually expressed carefully and reasonably. Distrustful of his emotional urges and somewhat wary of his feelings, he tries to rid himself of all partiality and try to get some perspective and distance before making an emotional commitment.
Alvaro Dias lives in a state of psychic tension, resenting the gap between what he really experiences and the ideals he wishes for. He is hesitant, irresolute, and impressionable. His love life is characterized by some confusion, and he usually wants to stay on the sidelines. If he marries, the relationship may be the product of resignation or pure reason.
Alvaro Dias thinks you are sensible and level-headed on the outside, but on the inside, you are a true romantic at heart. You dream of a devoted admirer who will carry you off, far from home and who, most of all, will cure your latent emotional depression. But real life is more mundane and you may end up with a partner who won’t share the burden of practical constraints and responsibilities and chases after adventure. Maturity will help you to make a second relationship a happier one.
Alvaro Dias may be characterized by strong sensual and affectionate urges which drive him to seek pleasure. His need for romantic fulfillment may compel him to marry, because he also seeks the legal and social legitimacy the institution of marriage confers on an emotional bond. Indeed, the household is liable to be prosperous and even opulent, as if this offered further evidence that he had indeed achieved success. However, privately, he might be less committed to certain obligations and duties.
Alvaro Dias considers the input from his subjectivity and emotions as dynamic, which he tries to tune out to go straight to the essence of knowledge. As a result, regardless of his field of study, he tries to obtain perspective. He will elaborate a thought on the basis of fairly warm, abstract logic, supported by candid, concise, and immaculate reasoning. His choice areas of study could be mathematics, philosophy, legislation, or political science. Ideologies, theories, and any other system of reasoning could serve as “food for thought” for him.
Alvaro Dias tries to shun subjectivity and be as objective as possible. His thoughts are usually structured, and his reasoning, based on objective facts or experience, usually relates to practical goals.
In adulthood, you may have experienced a situation in which you were prevented from developing your intellectual and imaginative faculties in a harmonious way. This could be difficult for you to integrate new ideas and concepts or to give your thought structure and coherence. You may have a distaste for study, which may require a great deal of effort for you. You may harbor feelings of insecurity that are so acute that they may undermine your will and therefore your ability to compete. However, if you overcame these emotions, you would see that you have plenty of marketable skills and that many satisfactory solutions to your feelings of ineptitude and inadequacy are within your reach. Because this psychological complex may be related to childhood or adolescent opposition to parental or academic authority, you may not readily accept people who represent law enforcement agencies or power as an adult. You may display some hostility or vindictiveness toward them as a matter of principle. You should sometimes be careful of what you say.
