Alyssa Edwards is a meticulous and dogged worker, gifted for tasks which require great precision and discipline. She might struggle with pessimism about her own self-worth and try to compensate for this feeling by constantly keeping busy and devoting herself almost entirely to those close to her.
Alyssa Edwards had a difficult time finding her identity. Perhaps her father or a father figure was absent physically or emotionally during her childhood, which deprived her of the patterns or models which are usually helpful in structuring a personality. Because she 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, she was forced to protect herself against negative influences and find her own system in order to grow and feel secure. Although this system was quite useful to her as a child, it has now settled in to such a degree that it interferes with her evolution. Psychological defense mechanisms and crutches which were once useful now encumber her mind or inhibit her developmental efforts. As a result, in certain situations, it is difficult for her to assert herself, and she tends to remain an awkward or passive observer. Because her authoritarian urges are mainly directed at herself rather than others, she sometimes feels guilty about her behavior. She judges herself severely, and sometimes punishes herself by setting difficult tasks for herself. Gradually, she should build up a strong inner discipline and acquire the strength to face the problems of existence in a detached and mature way.
Alyssa Edwards is fairly strong-willed, and she is mindful of going about her purposes with maximum efficiency. When she relates to other people, she sometimes has trouble expressing her emotions, but she does have a lively sensitivity and is capable of lasting passion. As she grows older, she is quite likely to come into her own and acquire great intellectual and spiritual wisdom. Her honesty, integrity, and sense of duty will win her recognition and appreciation. Passing time will be a very important factor in her destiny, and her greatest accomplishments will guarantee her stability and prosperity. Although she is not especially enterprising, she will move into a high career position as soon as she feels sure of her abilities.
Alyssa Edwards enjoys sharing and has a constant need for contact with others. She tends to be free and uninhibited in her relations with other people, rarely allowing herself to be influenced by convention or prevailing opinion; she associates with whomever she pleases. This attitude makes her life refreshing and exciting, and she is never bored. In career terms, she is quite gifted for any field related to communication, where her intellectual singularity and lively wit would make her an amazing hit. She would also be likely to succeed in any activity where the work required a multidisciplinary approach: teaching, advertising, politics, etc.
Alyssa Edwards has an inalienable awareness of the void and the vanity of existence. She is sometimes disoriented and deconstructed by an unknowable, unconscious force and tends to ignore or disparage the superficial pleasures and pains of daily life, preferring to dive into the depths of human experience as deeply as her intellectual, emotional, and spiritual capacities permit. Grappling with her “fundamental nature,” with the deepest and most primitive part of herself, she is sometimes aghast at the discovery of the sheer power of the life instinct and feels an imperious need to cope with it. This special consciousness she has 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 her at the outset. It is not easy for her to recognize herself in any social or narcissistic models or identify with any existing roles or attitudes, so she sometimes finds herself forced to construct and assert her own identity on a basis which may impress others with its intensity, if not its eccentricity.
Alyssa Edwards usually avoids getting close to people, because she fears they’ll leave her again. This is because she’s never had a stable relationship where she could be herself. She puts all her energy into her work, in the hope of gaining the respect and admiration she feels she deserves.
Alyssa Edwards has a sensitive nature. Although she may sometimes have trouble controlling her emotional reactions, they are nevertheless a source of vital energy for a constructive passion and may make an extremely positive contribution to her career. In relations with other people, she is quite friendly; she willingly reaches out to people and knows how to listen to their desires and their problems.
Alyssa Edwards is optimistic and happy to be alive. She is cheerful, expansive, and pleasant to have as an associate. She is generous (sometimes to a fault!) and gives of herself and her belongings unstintingly. This positive psychological outlook is the result of a happy childhood and especially an extremely beneficial maternal influence in infancy. She is quite likely to be a professional success; her vision of the world is perfectly adapted to prevailing opinion, and her urges and desires for personal expansion usually elicit a positive reaction from society. By old age, her good reputation and prominence may have earned her fame.
Alyssa Edwards has a sensitivity that can sometimes overwhelm her partners. Her compassion for the other is profound, and she readily sacrifices her own interest to help and assist. A romantic and idealist, she sometimes lacks discernment in the choice of her partners. She is fairly confused and evasive, and has trouble expressing her feelings clearly. Nevertheless, she is capable of devoting herself entirely to the person she loves. She has a tendency to daydream and become lost in herself.
Alyssa Edwards’s birth chart indicates that she has an emotional function which is usually expressed carefully and reasonably. Distrustful of her emotional urges and somewhat wary of her feelings, she tries to rid herself of all partiality and try to get some perspective and distance before making an emotional commitment.
Alyssa Edwards is outwardly inhibited, but her powerful and upsetting inner passions usually deny her emotions and feelings. She is more comfortable with her career, where her desire to progress and her taste for power give her wings. She will do well to admit that her emotions cannot be repressed indefinitely.
Alyssa Edwards had always been fascinated by the way emotions could differ from person to person. She had observed that the way someone approached love could be vastly different from another person, and it was an interesting observation to make. However, she couldn’t help but be conflicted by her own emotions. On one hand, she desired to surrender to a mystical union with her loved one, and on the other hand, she had a need to control and analyze her interactions. This made it difficult for her to be spontaneous, and she often reverted back to her analytical side.
Alyssa Edwards is a charismatic and ardent person, and her relationships are enlivened by intensity and passion. She is often more in love with the idea of love than with a partner, which can lead to some instability in her love life. She is generally attracted to original people who defy norms, standards, and classifications, and expect them to amaze and fascinate her. Her greatest contradictions surface when an intimate relationship is established; although she merges her ego entirely into the couple, she is likely to demand a total autonomy and liberty which are inimical to intimacy. If her partner charms and captivates her long enough, there is some possibility that they will form a more solid bond with her; otherwise, she is likely to yield to her need for novelty and fall under the spell of an entirely different person who exerts a new kind of charm for her. Midlife may be a turning point for her from this point of view, as her contradictory attitude may in some ways hide a compulsion to reject and deny the bonds of dependency inherent to a love relationship. Her behavior enables her to remain aloof, to commit herself only halfway without consciously admitting it to herself, and to avoid feeling guilty if and when she loses interest. An insatiable appetite for novelty and exaltation sometimes keeps her from forming stable relationships. Indeed, she is tormented by the struggle between her undeniable need for affection and an equally imperious desire for personal progress and emancipation. As a result of this inner turmoil, her romantic aspirations are usually sabotaged sooner or later by her conviction that her partner has become an obstacle to her individual progress. Because she thinks of love as a restraint, she may even eventually consciously refuse any emotional approach to love interests. However, she is also likely to meet “the one” who inspires her to initiate a change in her behavior.
Alyssa Edwards considered the input from her subjectivity and emotions as static which she tried to tune out to go straight to the essence of knowledge. As a result, regardless of her field of study, she tried to obtain perspective. She would elaborate a thought on the basis of fairly cold, abstract logic, supported by sober, concise, and immaculate reasoning. Her 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 her.
Alyssa Edwards expresses her thoughts and ideas in direct, spontaneous outbursts. She is fairly extroverted and eager to discover and understand the outer world. An idealist, she looks forward to a bright future but is sometimes subjective and reckless.
Alyssa Edwards has a structured mind and penetrating intelligence, but her thought processes tend to be somewhat plodding. This slow pace may be the consequence of some failure or humiliation during her formative years. She is fairly inhibited and pessimistic and tends to doubt in herself and her intellectual skills despite her undeniable gifts as a thinker. She should become aware that her thought patterns and habits are the sign that she is on the brink of a really big breakthrough which will give her an understanding of the complexity of things and phenomena; however, it will take time and effort. Her mind is deep and accurate and is attracted by the essence of things and their fundamental structure. As a result, she is particularly suited to the study of mathematics, architecture, engineering, or perhaps even politics. Her contribution to society will probably be most lasting and effective in the field of knowledge and expertise. Whatever career she chooses, she should learn to work alone, because she tends to be uncomfortable in some surroundings. She will also have to learn to conquer her impatience, because she tends to waste time agonizing over deadlines and schedules. Moreover, a lack of self-confidence could cause her to be fairly conventional and respectful of time-honored ways. Instead, she should find the courage to question her convictions.
Alyssa Edwards has a definite taste for expression and communication. She cannot survive without giving voice to her thoughts and speaking to other people. She delight in her own power to persuade, captivate, and sway an audience with her words. Especially attracted to anything new and original, she 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 she is fairly high strung, she may have trouble concentrating on a single subject for very long, unless it is a source of intellectual fascination or discovery. She may have to make some effort to overcome this inconsistency. Her open-mindedness offers her creativity, which is a valuable commodity in many occupations: teaching, communications, advertising, etc. Regardless of the career she chooses, her personal development will involve intellectual activity and progress.
