Bethany Ciotola’s personality is mind-oriented. She understands and relates to the world around her via the medium of thought and intellect. Memorization, comparison, analysis, and the verbalization of her mental imagery are her favorite activities. She seeks to extend her personality by a mental outreach to a multitude of new ideas and factors, becoming acquainted with an ever-increasing variety of facets of human nature. Thus, language and symbolic expression, written or oral, are her primary resources in life, although they are also potential pitfalls. Her eloquence, wit, and verve, her mastery of language, unquestionably give her power over other people (via communication) and things (science and technique). But taken to extremes, this faculty may lead to incoherency.
It is thus vital for her to find an outlet for her flow of verbal expression, she must explain, communicate, and speak. If it is dammed up, she will undoubtedly suffer. Her flow of words is the expression of her vital energy, the proof that she is alive and well. If she is forced to be silent, she would be cut off from the bonds that hold her together. A kind of duality or split personality might emerge… remember Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde? “They” were a classic case. For all of the above reasons, she is naturally gregarious and sociable.
She makes friends quickly and easily. Her contacts and networks are important to her, because they enable her to evolve. They are a source of self-fulfillment and identification. Any form of play is also important to her, and only severe depression will deprive her of her playfulness. She sometimes amuse herself by acting out a variety of roles on the stage of life, just for the fun of it. Her animation and wit give her a talent for improvisation and adaptation. However, adaptability is a two-bladed sword. She is liable to find herself in a superficial bind, having jettisoned certain important ideas in order to move about more freely. She is also sensitive, but her emotions and feelings are sometimes subject to the scrutiny and censorship of her intellect. Thus, she cannot free herself to the strength of great passions and energies without idealizing them to a certain degree and giving them intellectual resonance. Wary of her irrational instincts and urges, she tends to control or repress them.
But she will do well to learn that the intellect is not omnipotent, especially where instinct is concerned. Inhabiting a complex inner world, she sometimes feels vulnerable, due to her emotionalism and sensitivity to the aggressions of the outer world. Because she relies first and foremost on her adaptability and agility to wriggle out of trouble, she may, on certain occasions, make rather dubious compromises with herself – all the more likely if her moral fiber is made of wax, as is often the case, instead of steel. The weaknesses she must overcome are instability, wishy-washiness, a lack of determination and coherence in her thought.
Bethany Ciotola, due to the influence of Scorpio rising, has a powerful, forthright, passionate nature with a penchant for possessiveness, be it material, mental, or spiritual. Her own mind proceeds from a fairly skeptical, steadfast, realistic viewpoint, but she is curious about and critical of different ideas. She tends to reject any outside authority. She feels perfectly capable of making her own decisions and can easily sweet-talk people into letting her have her own way. Her personality also gives her the potential to be a gifted investigator and diagnostician in any field. Her skills include detecting and uncovering the hidden aspects of people and things. Her other natural resources are her rigid and unilateral determination, her capacity for self-control, and the stubbornness and energy with which she overcomes obstacles. It is important for her to channel her energy into structured activities, or she may become dissipated. Sports or physical exercise will also be beneficial to her well-being.
Bethany Ciotola is highly aware of psychological, metaphysical, or mystical questions. The future may hold a complete psychological metamorphosis in store for Bethany Ciotola.

Her sense of humor is her best communications tool, but she often switches to a more severe tone which breaks her charm over her audience, and her methods do not always please the masses.
Her lack of flexibility hinders her strategies and projects, and she would gain by developing her sense of diplomacy and tact. Although she is not unduly attached to success, because she is so used to being ahead of her time, her failures take a psychological toll on her. Because each setback wears her down a little more, she should try to avoid further disappointments by conforming to contemporary reality a little more closely.
