Alvin Sanders needs others in order to structure himself. Intuitively sensing this need, he seeks a balance between his individual ambitions and need to give to others, and be loved and recognized in return. Marriage and friendship could be realms to which he is especially devoted, but they may also prove to be a source of conflict and disillusion.
You were born into a difficult family situation. As a result, you may have had difficulty developing a strong sense of identity. You may have lacked a father figure, which could have left you without the patterns or models that are usually helpful in structuring a personality. Because you lacked the security that a father figure could provide, 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 helpful to you as a child, it has now settled into a place where it interferes with your progress. Psychological defense mechanisms and crutches which were once useful now encumber your mind or inhibit your developmental efforts. As a result, in some 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, you sometimes feel guilty about your behavior. You judge yourself harshly, and sometimes punish 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.
At the moment of your birth, the two celestial “lights” (the sun and the moon) were symmetrically aligned. This is a portent of harmony between the masculine and feminine archetypes which is beneficial. It is the source of balance and understanding between the two main psychological realms which may be said to compose the personality. You thus enjoy a positive complementarity and understanding between the conscious and unconscious aspects of your psyche, between your determination and your routines, between your drive for self-assertion and your receptivity, your ideal and your sensitivity. Your parents almost certainly reflected a positive image of the marriage relationship to you, and it is likely that they encouraged you to develop your own individuality. As a result, you were and are able to be comfortable with yourself as you are instead of striving to attain your parents’ ideal. This has definitely contributed to the maintenance of a good relationship with them and the rest of the family. In your emotional relationships with your peers, one of the effects of the masculine/feminine harmony is that the images your ego projects on the other are especially constructive. The bonds of the relationship are not felt to be constraints, the energy which flows between the two people is a source of mutual happiness, not regret. No major personal conflicts are projected onto the “other” – that is, the significant other.
Alvin Sanders is attractive and winning. 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.
Alvin Sanders maintained strong ties with his past, and it often seemed difficult for him to open his heart to new people. His love affairs existed on the surface level, because his lust and sensual desire rarely turned into a need to understand, protect, and care for the other. Moreover, it was difficult for him to meet partners who combined the ideals of the tender parent and the great lover.
Although you keep a tight grip on your emotions, you have an appetite for intense emotional thrills, especially in your relationships, and are sometimes upset by them. Feelings of insecurity may keep you from expressing your emotions, and you tend at times to become jealous or possessive of the person you love. The force of your emotional drives is intense and especially evident when you have been wounded in some way in the course of a love affair, or if you feel as though someone, a friend or lover, has betrayed you. You have a tendency to be masochistic and thrive on suffering. You may abandon yourself to your emotional fears and trifle with your inner vulnerability.
Alvin Sanders is a complicated person. His sensitivity and emotions are in conflict with his instincts, which makes him a difficult relationship partner. He often switches from one attitude to the opposite, and his sexuality is an important part of his life.

Due to the strength of his instincts, passion may overwhelm him and drag him into situations he cannot always control, which intermingle erotic ecstasy and anguish, guilt, and aggressiveness.
Alvin Sanders’ sensitivity often overwhelms his partners, and his compassion for the other is profound. He readily sacrifices his own interest to others, to provide help and assistance. A romantic as well as an idealist, he sometimes lacks discernment in the choice of his partners. He is fairly confused and evasive and has trouble expressing his feelings clearly. Nevertheless, he is capable of devoting himself entirely to the person he loves. He has a tendency to daydream and become lost in himself.

Alvin Sanders finds himself attracted to you. Your naughty appeal intrigues him, and he can’t help but feel overpowered by his lustful urges.

Alvin Sanders is emotional and impressionable, and he puts a lot of faith in love and in a reliable partner with whom he’ll feel secure. His intuition will help him to choose the right partner. Once he has found this person, he will be devoted and generous and will give himself body and soul to his chosen one. Sexuality will be an important part of this emotional union.
Alvin Sanders is an intuitive thinker. He does not reason things out through a long, articulate, logical discourse; instead, he seizes the visions or insights that spontaneously flash into his consciousness. He thus has a form of immediate knowledge of various phenomena which is based neither on reasoning nor on any elaborate thought process or method. As a result, if he is an extrovert, he will possess an inventive, innovative spirit gifted for improvisation. If he is an introvert, his mind will be an abundant source of personal inner truths.
Alvin Sanders expresses his thoughts and ideas in direct, spontaneous outbursts. He is fairly extroverted and eager to discover and understand the outer world. An idealist, he looks forward to a bright future but is sometimes subjective and reckless.
Alvin Sanders has a mind with an insatiable appetite for knowledge and an exceptional ability to learn. Without trying too hard, he could probably accumulate encyclopedic erudition. His intellectual curiosity is such that it is sometimes a plus. He sometimes has trouble limiting himself to a single subject without being distracted by a multitude of others. Discipline and a conscious effort at organization will be of great help to him if he wants to deepen his learning and judgment. Once his intellectual faculties are disciplined, he is likely to succeed in any of the following fields: teaching, historical scholarship, advertising, writing (journalistic or literary), travel, etc. – in fact, communication in any form.
In the formative years of childhood and adolescence, you may have undergone a conflicting situation which prevented you from developing your intellectual and imaginative faculties in a harmonious way. It may be somewhat 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 might 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.
Alvin Sanders has a definite taste for expression and communication. He cannot survive without giving voice to his thoughts and speaking to other people. He delights in his own power to persuade, captivate, and sway an audience with his words. Especially attracted to anything new and original, he immediately grasps the utility and value of the latest technology or philosophy, no matter how complicated it may be and has a knack for explaining it to the uninitiated and popularizing it. Because he is fairly high strung, he may have trouble concentrating on a single subject for very long, unless it is a source of intellectual fascination or discovery. He may have to make some effort to overcome this inconsistency. His open-mindedness gives him creativity, which is a valuable commodity in many occupations: teaching, communications, advertising, etc. Regardless of the career he chooses, his personal development will involve intellectual activity and progress.
