Álvaro Torres senses that he has instincts which may be dangerous, and he tries to restrain and control them. As a result, he may adopt a fairly ascetic lifestyle. His attitude, which denies the vital importance of the most archaic and darkest forces within him, is not entirely innocuous. If he hopes for a more harmonious development, he will do well to realize that instincts can be tamed; they do not react positively to being trampled.
You have a patriarchal complex and, as a result, some trouble finding your identity. Perhaps your father or a father figure was absent physically or emotionally during your childhood, which deprived you of the patterns or models which are usually helpful in structuring a personality. Because you 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, you were forced to protect yourself against negative influences and find your own system in order to grow and feel secure. Although this system was quite useful to you as a child, it has now settled in to such a degree that it interferes with your evolution. Psychological defense mechanisms and crutches which were once useful now encumber your mind or inhibit your developmental efforts. As a result, in certain situations, it is difficult for you to assert yourself, and you tend to remain an awkward or passive observer. Because your authoritarian urges are mainly directed at yourself rather than others, you sometimes feel guilty about your behavior. You judge yourself severely, and sometimes punishes yourself by setting difficult tasks for yourself. Gradually, you should build up a strong inner discipline and acquire the strength to face the problems of existence in a detached and mature way.
His 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.
Álvaro Torres has a great potential for creative, constructive accomplishments; however, it is sometimes difficult for him to gain access to this part of himself. He is confident in himself and life but may tend to be nonchalant. He sometimes needs a little stimulation to get himself rolling and take some initiative. His optimism and inner certainty do not always drive him to give his utmost efforts to achieve a goal. The communications skills he possesses are an advantage as well as a handicap. He makes use of his theatrical gifts, convincing eloquence, and ability to listen. The best careers for him would be teaching, communications, philosophy, the legal profession, theater, and public relations.
You are an individual who is convinced of the importance of freedom and independence. You have chosen to lead an innovative lifestyle, and your passionate convictions can sometimes clash with your relationships. You may be a demanding partner, and you may have difficulty recognizing your own limitations. Your behavior may be due to your relationship with your father or teachers in childhood, or you may have rejected conventional values in your adulthood. In every important life decision, you must rely on yourself to develop the appropriate behavior. And, as with all important decisions, you must impose limits on your desires in relation to reality and the law.
You are an intensely sensitive person who is easily drawn in by your surroundings. You often have a difficult time communicating your feelings to other people, and you often find it difficult to think analytically. This may be because when you were a child, your teachers did not understand your defensive reactions and punished you instead. As a result, you withdrew into yourself and created a strong inner life that they could not invade. Because you enjoyed indulging in your imagination, it may have been difficult for you to develop an objective view of reality. As a result, you tend to create imaginary problems for yourself, regardless of the objective facts outside. Although your imagination is a source of inspiration and intuition, your fluid inner structure and organization sometimes make it difficult for you to understand the essence of your dreams and share them with other people. You are not at all combative, and this often hampers your efforts to fit into society and assert yourself productively. You are more likely to prefer fantasy to reality, but your refusal to abandon your 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 and incompetence that 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 kind of social work or by cultivating your considerable artistic talents.
Álvaro Torres 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.
Mild and sensitive, Álvaro Torres is deeply human. He is sociable and sincerely devoted to others. His mother or a mother-figure had a strong influence on his psyche, and his childhood was an important time in his life. He still identifies with vivid childhood memories; they are the basis for his reveries, for his extreme sensitivity, and for habits which he may be slow to break. However, he will thrive in the shelter of a family setting, soothed by the presence of a spouse and children. He is fond of security and routine; being somewhat impressionable and anxious, he may have trouble adjusting to situations which are unfamiliar.
Álvaro Torres hides his sensitivity behind a cool exterior. He is conservative, respectful of tradition and convention, and likes to follow the rules. Because he needs stability to alleviate his feelings of frustration and sometimes emotional dependency, he has great faith in contracts which seal relationships. His ties to his past are fairly strong. They are a source of reassurance and safety, because his parents likely gave a lot to him.
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 tend to become destructive. Based on denial, your reactions are sometimes fierce, impulsive, and excessive, erratic, or contradictory.
Álvaro Torres has a sensual and affectionate nature which is sensitive to physical attraction. This type of sensitivity, combined with his productive urges, may be expressed in an artistic form. As for his feelings, they are usually slow to take root. But once he is conquered by love, he forms a deep and lasting bond. Although he is loyal, he may also display a tendency to be somewhat possessive.
Álvaro Torres’s birth chart indicates that he has an emotional function that is usually expressed carefully and reasonably. He distrusts his emotional urges and somewhat wary of his feelings, so he tries to rid himself of all partiality and get some perspective and distance before making an emotional commitment.
According to the aforesaid, it appears that Álvaro Torres is more or less torn between two different sides of his nature. His desire to impress conflicts with his attachment to the nest; his social ambitions contradict his need for security; and his natural self-focus is hard to reconcile with his altruism. He is likely to marry a prominent person – one he can be proud of. His own social position may disappoint him, but his family will give him satisfactions he missed out on.
Álvaro Torres likes to attract and seduce. In his youth, his admirers were many and varied. However, he longs for stability and will find this with a partner who is socially brilliant but somewhat unconventional.
You are hypersensitive and tend to relive the anxieties, apprehensions, and romantic absolutes of your first love relationships, which occurred around the ages of 13-14 years or 20-21 years. You are exquisitely sensitive, but almost completely barricaded behind a layer of aloofness. You will not settle for anything less than eternal commitment, total harmony, and absolute loyalty. You are sometimes presumed to be cold, even by those close to her. You usually hide your emotional reactions or do not even allow them to reach the level of your consciousness, in an effort to protect your sensitivity, which you see as your weak point. You are fairly vulnerable, even in the intimacy of a stable and established relationship. Usually, you will disguise your strong feelings as a kind of possessiveness or even jealousy. Certain misfortunes may arouse a negative emotional state inside you, and you feel unworthy of the love which is lavished on you. This psychological prohibition which rules over all of your desires and affects should loosen with the passage of time; likewise, your fear of approaching the other will diminish. As a result, the second part of your romantic life will be more rewarding. In any case, if you want to experience a harmonious love relationship and gratify yourself emotionally, the defense mechanisms you have elaborated to make yourself inaccessible to others will have to be dismantled. Any profound relationship will also require that you learn how to forget yourself occasionally in the other.
Álvaro Torres has a rather rational mind and a restrained intellect, which is usually subject to the rule of his methodical imagination. Although he is likely to have flashes of intuition which may prove to be correct, his thought processes are sometimes orderly and clear. His mind, which is oriented in many different directions at the same time, is ruled by his emotions and feelings. In tune with psychic and parapsychic phenomena, his thinking requires only the adjunct of structure to rise from the level of a blurry, uncertain, undifferentiated mass to that of a really significant vision with a grip on the real world.
Álvaro Torres expresses his thoughts and ideas in direct, spontaneous outbursts. He is fairly introverted and eager to discover and understand the inner world. An idealist, he looks forward to a bright future but is sometimes subjective and reckless.
You have a lively and agile spirit, but you tend to apply your mental abilities in a somewhat haphazard and disorderly way. You are curious and open-minded, approaching various life experiences with an attitude free of either dogmatism or prejudice. Your extremely lively mind leads you to have an opinion on every subject. Although you enjoy manipulating expressions and concepts and amuses others and yourself with witty remarks, your conversations could collapse into argument and conflict. Because you are often too hasty to formulate and construct the arguments which would back up and inform your ideas, you are sometimes misunderstood. You are often blind to the rashness of your judgments and convinced they are well-founded and objective, which sometimes irritates the people around you. Actually, your overriding need to assert yourself as an individual sometimes defeats discussion and prevents you from listening to the other person fairly. But if you were to succeed in disciplining your mind somewhat, you would have innumerable opportunities to apply your communications skills to a great career. Furthermore, you should be careful of your nerves, which are fairly high-strung. Any physical fitness activity would be beneficial; an Eastern discipline such as yoga or Tai-chi-chuan could teach you how to relax and improve control of your nervous and mental energies.
You can be very impulsive in your decisions, often acting before you fully understand the consequences. You tend to be rash and take risks, which can lead to problems down the road. You tend to overestimate your abilities, which can lead to making poor choices. And, because your vision of the world differs somewhat from social realities, you need to be especially careful when it comes to legal matters. If you continue to behave in this way, your partners may begin to lose trust in you.
You have a strong and genuine interest in expression and communication. You can’t survive without sharing your thoughts and speaking to others. You enjoy using your voice to persuade, captivate, and sway an audience. Especially drawn to anything new and original, you quickly understand the value of the latest technology or philosophy, no matter how complicated it may be, and are able to explain it to the uninitiated and popularize it. Because you are high-strung, you may have trouble concentrating on a single subject for very long, unless it’s a source of fascination or discovery. You may have to make some effort to overcome this inconsistency. Your open-mindedness offers you creativity, which is a valuable commodity in many occupations: teaching, communications, advertising, etc. Regardless of the career you choose, your personal development will involve intellectual activity and progress.
Álvaro Torres has a great deal of intuition but sometimes has problems organizing his thought processes and making an intellectual commitment. The concepts of boundary and structure are inimical to his mind, which is open and all-encompassing, premonitory, and web-like. His thoughts may be verbally indeterminate, vague, and ill defined. He tends to understand or sense things globally, without always noticing their component parts. Usually, he can’t see the trees for the forest. In daily life, although his perceptions are lively and subtle, he may display a kind of absent-mindedness out of a fear of annoying people with his shrewdness or of fighting to assert himself. His imagination sometimes escapes from the confines of logic, cringing from a confrontation with reality. This unwillingness to face the real world may cause relationship or career challenges.
