Consciousness and The Ideal of Self:
Ashley Alexander is searching for stability. Ashley Alexander wants to find a firm, unchanging structure for Ashley Alexander’s life. But Ashley Alexander’s efforts to achieve this ideal are often vain, because unconsciously, Ashley Alexander is also inhabited by the opposite desire. Every time Ashley Alexander reaches what Ashley Alexander believes to be a good balance, Ashley Alexander realizes Ashley Alexander wants something entirely different. Ashley Alexander should become aware that the concepts of stability and balance are difficult to apply to life. By definition, life is movement, change, and perpetual instability.
At the moment of Ashley Alexander’s 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 extremely beneficial. It is the source of balance and understanding between the two main psychological realms which may be said to compose the personality. Ashley thus enjoys a positive complementarity and understanding between the conscious and unconscious aspects of her psyche, between her determination and her routines, between her drive for self-assertion and her receptivity, her ideal and her sensitivity.
Ashley’s parents almost certainly reflected a positive image of the marriage relationship to her, and it is likely that they encouraged her to develop her own individuality. As a result, Ashley was and is able to be comfortable with herself as she is instead of striving to attain her parents’ ideal. This has definitely contributed to the maintenance of a good relationship with them and the rest of the family.
In Ashley’s emotional relationships with her peers, one of the effects of the masculine/feminine harmony is that the images her 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.
Adaptation and Sensitivity:
Lively and expressive, Ashley has a personality which is sometimes agitated but straightforward. Unconscious feelings of insecurity compel Ashley to act and sometimes to seek the admiration of others. As a result, Ashley is unable to bear idleness and routine, and is in search of perpetual excitement. Ashley’s reactions to others are highly individual and depend on the mood Ashley is in at any given moment. A person of decision, a businessperson or an athlete, Ashley often personifies boldness and impetuosity. Ashley’s love life is liable to be fiery, as it obeys the imperatives of Ashley’s desire for freedom and independence, and Ashley’s need for change.
Although Ashley Alexander’s demeanor is cool and distant, she is extremely sensitive. In some cases, her rather austere and rigid behavior and refusal to yield too readily to sentimentality discourage others from being too demonstrative of their tenderness and affection. She has spells of melancholy in which she does not feel worthy of being loved and tend to forbid herself any emotional fulfillment. An austere or somewhat traumatic childhood experience may be the source of this behavior. It is difficult for her inner self to be detached from this past life, and she sometimes has trouble reconciling the image she has of herself as an adult with the one she acquired back then. The idea she has of herself as an individual is related to the image her parents projected onto her as a child. Nevertheless, the past is history, and she is now an adult. It should be easy for her to rid herself of these phantoms through self-work. She has the ability to overcome her mistakes, as well as great endurance and will power to achieve her goals. Nevertheless, she must not repress her sensitivity in order to succeed.
Ashley Alexander has a nagging feeling of insecurity which affects her psychology and dampens her natural enthusiasm. Ashley Alexander’s need to take action and assert herself is sometimes disturbed by this gnawing fear.
Ashley Alexander is emotional and tends to react suddenly and excessively as soon as her sensitivity is touched. Although she feels that her independence, freedom, and self-sufficiency are fundamental values, she is sometimes frustrated by her need to rely on her family or friends. Moreover, she does not always grant the freedom of other people the same respect as her own. Likewise, she is sometimes angered by expressions of maternal tenderness, as if she feared that it would doom her to eternal dependency. Her ambivalent behavior, full of jagged edges, may be traced back to the relationship she had with her mother or a mother figure. Although she was dependent on them, they may have rejected her. Now this attitude is extended to any situation in which her sensitivity comes into play and emotional bonds are liable to form. To ward off her feelings of dependency, she sometimes tends to become destructive. Based on denial, her reactions might be fierce, impulsive, excessive, erratic, or contradictory.
Due to Ashley Alexander’s sensitivity and irrepressible imagination, she sometimes has trouble distinguishing dreams from reality. Although Ashley Alexander’s bubbling imagination provides an abundant source of inspiration for creative or spiritual evolution, it tends to be less helpful and positive in matters that concern Ashley Alexander’s self-assertion as responsible and self-sufficient. In a relationship, Ashley Alexander is extremely romantic and does not always see others the way they really are.
Love and Sensuality:

Celebrity Ashley Alexander has the fiery, importunate nature of a fervent lover. Indeed, affairs of the heart are one of her main purposes in life. Her personal charm and magnetism are compellingly seductive; unfortunately, her attempts at conquest do not always lead to the fulfillment and satisfaction of her desires. Due to her impulsiveness and impatience to initiate new encounters, her approach to those she is attracted to may sometimes lack tact and delicacy. As a result of the foregoing, it may be somewhat difficult for her to maintain stable and harmonious relationships. Indeed, her emotional behavior is subject to a conflict between her quest for love and her need to satisfy her lust. Her outpourings of affection and her need to be loved in return sometimes create complicated situations in which lust may be confused with love, or love may exist without lust, and she may feel unrequited or unfulfilled. This inner contradiction is a sign of her tendency to derive pleasure from suffering – either her own or that of her partner. The relationship thus becomes the setting for a sort of power struggle, weakening it as a source of psychological equilibrium. Nevertheless, she could sublimate this difficulty through artistic expression.

Because she sometimes feels vulnerable emotionally, she tries to control not only her own feelings and urges, but may also strive to manipulate those of her partners. She aspires to a profound and enduring spiritual unity, but at the same time, the idea of abandoning herself and yielding to the other terrifies her. This anguish may be a source of rather extreme behavior patterns and a somewhat self-focused attitude which could damage the relationship. Because she is guarded and somewhat secretive, she tends to be suspicious and is especially uneasy about spontaneous intimacy, although she is fascinated by sexuality. Within the privacy of the couple, she will not express her feelings unless she is subject to some tension. Life may be peppered with frequent crises and feuds, arguments and spats which usually act as erotic provocation. This derivation of eroticism from anxiety tends to be one of the fundamental characteristics of her emotional and sexual functioning. As a result, she is likely to be attracted by stormy and complicated relationships.
