Anna Kate has an ideal of which she is only partially conscious, but it has a great influence on her psychology. She is determined to preserve her integrity and purity. Even though she may not be aware of it, she is often preoccupied by this predicament. How can she live in this world and remain true to herself? How can she succeed in life without sacrificing her ideals? It’s the eternal philosophical dilemma. She has developed a solution, however; she elaborates a fairly strict code of behavior and try to obey it as much as possible. The path that she walks in life is straight and narrow. She yearns for a life that would reflect the ideal she has set for herself, as free as possible from irrational mysteries and human failings.
In fact, although she may sometimes seem a bit rigid, a bit lacking in perspective, it is because her mind understands the macrocosm through the microcosm, and she must observe the completed system before she will form her opinion. She is especially good at sorting and choosing, because her mind is like a filter. It rejects the impurities and only accepts the pure and useful. Analysis, deductive reasoning, and a sense of experimentation are her qualities. She possesses great meticulousness and precision which make her a quick and efficient worker. However, she may rely too strongly on her analytical faculties, to the detriment of an overall perception of reality.
She likes purity and therefore justice. Thus, she is sensitive to human suffering, especially as a result of social injustice, and she will try to remedy the situation according to what she has learned. Once again, the overriding themes of her personality emerge. She wants to preserve an ideal, avoid deterioration, change, adulteration. She is offended by imperfection and try to find ways to correct it. She is eager to help, to be useful, to serve a great cause, but she sometimes does not know whom or what she seeks to serve. Whatever purpose she adopts, she must learn to help without surrendering herself entirely; she tends to try to disappear into the background of a hierarchy. She is sometimes attracted by readymade systems, which soothe a certain anxiety she has. She wouldn’t mind devoting herself to a state, a big corporation, or a dogma. It would be reasonable and satisfying. But she sometimes forgets to rebel a bit – to evaluate whether the end justifies the means. She is reassured by predictability. When she commits herself, she wants to know exactly where she is bound and how. This may be a bit of an obstacle to her love life. She tends to keep a tight rein on her urges, to inhibit her emotions.
She would not want them to upset her carefully organized existence, after all! But she would do well to learn not to perceive spontaneity as such a threat. Powerful passions and sentiments may overwhelm her, since she tends to prefer reason, moderation, and reality. But her tendency to be so cautious, so analytical and intellectual, carries its own risk – that she will never dare to live life to the fullest.
Anna Kate has high social aspirations. She believes that by gaining total control of her intellect, feelings, and instincts, she can achieve them.
At the time of Anna Kate’s birth, her rising sign was located in Pisces (the Fish), while the sun was passing through the sign of Virgo (the Virgin). A summary of the various clues mentioned above provide her personality profile. The following key words capture the essence of her character and indicate certain contradictions which may be sources of tension:
Emotionalism – Modesty – Pliancy – Analytical thought – Humbleness and reserve – Strict logic – Idealism – Attention to detail – Perfectionism – Intuition – Worry and anxiety – Premonition – Nervousness.
She is torn by a deep inner conflict between her intellectual, rational, methodical side and a more romantic, emotional, sensitive tendency. Her spontaneous urges and feelings are often restrained by her perfectionist reasoning. Her idealistic ambitions and fantasies are stopped short by the moral and social considerations imposed by her intellect.
Conversely, her analytical skills and critical judgments are influenced by her emotionalism and impressionability. She must work to make these two influences mutually comprehensible to achieve, upon maturity, a well-balanced personality enriched by opposing elements. The most promising way to resolve the conflict is by harnessing her emotionalism, developing her decision-making capacities, and channeling her energy. Without stifling her intuition and imagination, she must be wary of her tendency to escape into a dream world.
