Amanda Asad is determined to obtain a superlative grip on her emotional urges; she practices holding back her impulses and controlling them. Although it is not an easy apprenticeship, she wants to be able to bear strain with patience, endurance, and stamina. More than anyone else, Amanda is aware of the need for a solid and stable foundation as a prerequisite to any effective action.
Amanda Asad often finds herself at odds with society’s rules and conventions. The mask of sociability most people wear is difficult for her to assume, and it is hard for her to act out the roles expected of her as a normal member of the community. The usual social values and rewards, like money, respect, and prestige, only mildly interest her. Her refusal or inability to play the social game may make it hard for her to find a job, which may have negative consequences on her financial and legal status. Reluctant and unwilling to adapt to the demands of social life, she sometimes unwittingly makes mistakes when a new project is in the planning stages. For example, she may leave gaps in a job application, botch up an interview with a prospective employer, or make a big mistake when bidding for a contract. But her financial difficulties may clear up when her emotional ones do.
Amanda Asad is pragmatic and realistic. She evaluates people and things according to practical, common-sense criteria instead of abstract concepts. A sensualist and lover of luxury, she has a penchant for material comfort and takes great joy in physical pleasures. In relation to others, socially and privately, she likes to build stable relationships and is not especially fond of change. Her warmth gives her a great deal of ease when meeting people, as clients (for business purposes), but her close relations also benefit from this affection and her ability to express her feelings naturally and openly.
Amanda Asad was having a difficult time distinguishing dreams from reality. Although her imagination could be an abundant source of inspiration for creative or spiritual evolution, it tended to be less helpful and positive in matters that concerned earning a decent living out in the real world. In a relationship, Amanda was extremely romantic and did not always see others the way they really were. She had elegant tastes and art and beauty were one of her chief pleasures in life.
Amanda Asad’s sensitivity and emotions are sometimes in conflict with her instincts. This inner discord makes her a fairly complicated relationship partner, and her behavior sometimes strikes others as mysterious or baffling. She is liable to switch from one attitude to the opposite. Sexuality is an important part of her life, and her relationships are most often motivated by her desires. Nevertheless, due to the strength of her instincts, passion may overwhelm her and drag her into situations she cannot always control, which intermingle erotic ecstasy and anguish, guilt, and aggressiveness.
Amanda Asad enjoys captivating people with the elegance and ease of her expression. She is a witty and engaging flirt, an avid player of the game of love. As a result, the history of her affections is liable to be episodic, a long series of chapters about conquests or fleeting love affairs. She may carry on some love relationships by writing letters.
Amanda Asad’s birth chart indicates an emotional function which is expressed in a direct and fairly impulsive way. She enjoys reaching out to other people and making discoveries. An eternal teenager with her gaze riveted on the future, Amanda is imbued with an eminently subjective and personal idealism.
Amanda Asad will emerge from an inhibited adolescence to become a person who knows what they want. She is quite possessive, and her likes and dislikes are strong and forthright. As time passes, her home and possibly children, to which she would be deeply attached, will become her focus.
Amanda Asad enjoys flirting and having fun with love, preferring to play the game of love rather than become passionately engaged. She avoids intense passion, believing that it can have few serious consequences. She enjoys fluttering from one good-looking face to the next, enjoying her ability to charm.
Amanda Asad has the ardent, importunate nature of a fervent lover. Indeed, affairs of the heart are one of her main purposes in life. Her personal charm and magnetism give her nearly irresistible powers of seduction, and nearly every one of her well-aimed attempts at conquest leads to the fulfillment and satisfaction of her desires. Due to her impulsiveness and impatience to initiate new encounters, her approach to members of the other sex may sometimes lack delicacy.
Amanda Asad may be characterized by strong sensual and affectionate urges which drive her to seek pleasure. Her need for romantic fulfillment may compel her to marry, because she 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 she had indeed achieved success. However, privately, she might be less committed to certain obligations and duties. At worst, she might deny the commitments that her optimism and expansiveness made her rush into too soon. If this were to be the case, the outward image of the couple’s success (wealth and comfort, etc.) would only be a façade which compensated for its emotional impoverishment and failure. Sooner or later, this hypocrisy might provoke a full-blown conflict. A second possibility is that a psychic incompatibility may gradually take root, pitting her romantic nature against the prerogatives of her career.
Amanda Asad’s intellect is simultaneously subjective and sensitive, acute and intuitive, always practical and deeply rooted in human experience. With her memory and imagination combined with her shrewdness, she would be a gifted project manager, businesswoman, or scholar of history or literature.
Amanda Asad tries to shun subjectivity and be as objective as possible. Her thoughts are usually structured, and her reasoning, based on objective facts or experience, usually relates to practical goals.
