Berkeley Gerth is patient. Berkeley Gerth is fond of routine, ritual, and any other events or ceremonies which mark the passage of time and the seasons. Berkeley Gerth tries to be as pragmatic as possible and unconsciously senses that his relationship with material things will be the best foundation for his self-development and individuation. As a result, Berkeley Gerth is attached to his possessions and will make every effort to cling to them.
Berkeley Gerth is a very vigorous and energetic person. He has an immense need to assert his individuality, and this motivation often leads him to rush into action despite the frequent threat of risk and danger. Because he has very little control over his energy and impulses, he sometimes injures himself bodily or starts arguments without really meaning to do so. He has a short temper and would do well to learn to control his recklessness, which exposes him to a great deal of unnecessary conflict and adversity. He is also likely to start projects which are not really appropriate to him, only to be forced to quit soon after. Before he makes any important decision, he must learn to stop and ask himself if what he is about to do is really positive for him.
Berkeley Gerth was born with a psychological particularity that can act either as a handicap or as an opportunity for the individual to overcome themselves. It will result in two groups of opposite but complementary reactions which will rule his behavior all his life: hypersensitivity or insensitivity, intense life wish or discomfort with life, obsession or renunciation, skepticism or fanaticism, asceticism or lust, jealousy or indifference, effort or laziness. The so-called “Saturnian” phases (at age 7, 14, 21, 28 or 29, and 35 years) will be transitional periods that give him an opportunity to resolve this complex in real life.
Berkeley Gerth does not like change. It scares her and makes her feel insecure. Sometimes she likes to cling to old-fashioned customs or lifestyles because they make her feel safe. When she feels insecure, she might repress her emotional needs.
Berkeley Gerth is a free thinker who believes in freedom and independence. He has thrown off what he perceives as the burdens of convention and customs and adopted an innovative lifestyle. His passionate convictions border on proselytism, and sometimes trouble his relationships, as he may be an uncompromising partner. He would do well to learn to recognize his own limitations and accept the responsibilities he has to other people, or he is liable to find himself continually embroiled in conflicting relationships. The roots of his somewhat extreme behavior probably lie in his relationship with his father or his teachers in childhood and adolescence. For one reason or another, he may have rejected the paternal image or refused to identify with his father, in the same way as he now refuses to adopt any values related to convention, tradition, or widespread usage. In every important life decision he makes as an adult, he is forced to rely on himself to elaborate the appropriate behavior, and the limits he must impose on his desires in relation to reality and the law.
You are a highly sensitive person who is easily absorbed into your surroundings. Your individuality seems to be diluted by a continuous flow of sensations and impressions, which often overwhelms you. It can be difficult for you to communicate your feelings to other people, and your emotions are a source of inspiration and intuition. However, your fluid inner structure and organization can make it difficult for you to understand your dreams and share them with other people. You are not at all combative, and this can hinder your efforts to fit into society and assert yourself productively. You are more likely to prefer fantasy to reality, but your reluctance to abandon your dreams is a psychological trap you have fallen into without realizing it. You must understand that by running away from your obligations and commitments, you only make things worse. Once you free yourself from this negative process, you have a great deal of potential for fulfilling yourself in the outer world, either by devoting yourself to some kind of social work or by developing your artistic talents.
Berkeley Gerth has an inalienable awareness of the void and the vanity of existence. He 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 his intellectual, emotional, and spiritual capacities permit. Grappling with his “fundamental nature,” with the deepest and most primitive part of himself, he is sometimes aghast at the discovery of the sheer power of his instincts and feels an imperious need to cope with them. This special consciousness he 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 him at the outset. It is not easy for him to recognize himself in any social or narcissistic models, or identify with any existing roles or attitudes, so he sometimes finds himself forced to assert and express his own identity in a way which may strike his contemporaries as strangely intense if not eccentric.
Berkeley Gerth is extremely sociable, in tune with others, and tactful and diplomatic. He also has a need to be accepted and respected, and is sensitive and discerning.

Berkeley Gerth has a sensitive personality. He may jump to conclusions, which could disrupt relationships, as well as career plans. He is subject to cyclical energy flows and goes from periods of feverish activity to periods of withdrawal and introspection. The aggressive element in his behavior may be explained by emotional problems he may have experienced in infancy: his mother, or a mother figure, may have had an energetic and volatile personality.
Although you maintain a cool and distant demeanor, you are extremely sensitive. In some cases, your rather austere and rigid behavior and your refusal to yield too readily to sentimentality discourage others from being too demonstrative of their tenderness and affection. You have spells of melancholy in which you do not feel worthy of being loved and tend to forbid yourself any emotional fulfillment whatsoever. An austere or somewhat traumatic childhood experience may be the source of this behavior. It is difficult for your inner self to be detached from this past life, and you sometimes have trouble reconciling the image you have of yourself as an adult with the one you acquired back then. The idea you have of yourself as an individual is related to the image your parents projected onto you as a child. Nevertheless, the past is history, and you are now an adult. Through self-work, you can rid yourself of these phantoms. You have the ability to overcome your mistakes, as well as great endurance and will power to achieve your goals. Nevertheless, you must not repress your sensitivity in order to succeed.

A charmer perpetually engaged in a quest for the ideal love, she is often more in love with the idea of love than with her partners. As a result, her love life may be subject to some instability. She is generally attracted to original people who defy norms, standards, and classifications, and expect them to amaze and fascinate her. Love is often a matter of luck with her.

Berkeley Gerth was an intuitive thinker. He did not reason things out through a long, articulate, logical discourse; instead, he seized the visions or insights that spontaneously flashed into his consciousness. He thus had a form of immediate knowledge of various phenomena which was based neither on reasoning nor on any elaborate thought process or method. As a result, if he was an extrovert, he would possess an inventive, innovative spirit gifted for improvisation. If he was an introvert, his mind would be an abundant source of personal inner truths.

Discipline and a conscious effort at organization will be of great help to her if she wants to deepen her learning and judgment.

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.
