You are an expressive and passionate person. As a result of the high levels of emotion, sensation, and feeling in your psychological make-up, you have acquired a deep sense of your individuality and uniqueness. You sometimes feel “different” – set apart from others. In order to justify this idea of yourself, you attempt to behave differently, to impress the crowd, and the product of your efforts is usually rather grandiose and exaggerated. It’s a self-perpetuating bind, because your impressive deeds usually earn recognition for you, and reinforce your self-assurance and your certainty that you do indeed stand head and shoulders above the rest. You sometimes make an attempt to bluff and show off with an emotional display. You like to take risks and give people advice. However, at the basis of your conduct, there is a feeling of social anxiety, which is probably unconscious or unconfessed. You may fear being absorbed or enslaved by society. The positive side of this unconscious anxiety is that it drives you to create, to counteract the deeply felt effects of time and the masses on your ego. By creating something, you can make your own individual mark on the world; you can organize it to reflect your own image, instead of allowing yourself to be submerged by it. The preceding comments about creating the world in your own image are strong indications that you seek to identify with your superego. The difference between your ideal of yourself and the individual you know yourself to be in truth, measured in terms of your social recognition or the recognition of your creations (children, works of art, etc.), will determine your state of mind. It is therefore important for you to make these images match to a certain extent, to reduce the gap as much as possible. The psychological dynamic described earlier explains many of the pluses and minuses in your personality. Your dignity and self-assurance may border on vanity; your strong instinct and ambition combined with your somewhat exaggerated individualism incline you to be self-focused. You may be proud, but you are also courageous, determined, and generous. You have the skills of an educator or an artist; moreover, you are mysteriously lucky.

Born on the day before the full moon, you are said to be a gibbous moon lunar type. This “soli-lunar” configuration gives you a rich, complex personality, although you are sometimes troubled by the feeling that you are struggling to do something great. Indeed, a feeling that you are lacking something may preoccupy you until you find a spiritual or humanitarian cause worthy of your devotion. Devotion will be important to you as a foundation for your inner and outer development. If you fail to encounter a great and noble cause to which you are willing to pledge yourself, you could always make do with a person whose aura and magnetism attract you. Whatever you decide, it is by working to serve a cause or another person that you will approach your own self-transformation.
