You have a dual nature. Two tendencies dwell within your psyche: one is related to your instincts and endows you with supreme strength and intense material desires, and the other flows from a higher psychic authority, the superego or human ideal, and inspires you with a precise awareness of your purpose and dignity as a human being among your fellows. The distinctiveness, if not the opposition, between these two tendencies is likely to trouble your quest for inner harmony at times. However, the difficulty you must overcome is not limited to a conflict between these two natures. Instead, you must choose which direction the energy generated by the contradiction will take. In other words, in more practical terms, if you identify with the power residing in society and the complex interactions of human beings, you can find one goal, one direction in which the power can lead. The positive side of this nature is the cohesive and all-encompassing understanding you derive from it. In daily life, you could be a resourceful and valuable organizer, designer, leader, or legislator. In fact, you have the native skills necessary for managing and leading a team of co-workers. The coherence of your thought is apt to enable you to budget and organize human energies for maximum profit and minimum loss. Overlooking from the outset trivial details and a tendency to be unable to see the forest for the trees, you can implement global, methodical systems and structures to solve problems. On another level, you have a nature profoundly attached to morality and ethics. You conceive of ethics as a practical system for human relations, not an idealistic and unattainable dream. Indeed, it should be noted that it is inexact to call you an idealist. If you seek an ideal, it is based on what already exists, by organizing it and putting it into practice, by seeing it operate smoothly and efficiently. Your originality comes from the fact that you always strive to go beyond common sense in search of a new perspective, which would enrich the spirit and transform values. All of these skills and resources predispose you to devote yourself to society. In the process, however, you are likely to overdo it to such a degree that your own personality is overshadowed. That is, you would identify too heavily with your social mask (your persona) and lose awareness of your individuality.
Due to the influence of Aquarius rising, you have an independent and individualistic temperament, sometimes aggravated by outer discipline and authority. In endeavoring to preserve your originality and freedom, you often resort to eccentric and unconventional behavior, even if it shocks the people around you. You are also reluctant to be tied down unnecessarily, so you may exaggerate your detached “lone wolf” aspect. Actually, you are troubled by pervasive feelings of inner anxiety which sometimes force you to inhibit your emotional and instinctive urges. You have developed near-stoic self-control. Although, as a result, you appear to be more serious and reliable, you have lost some of your carefree joy and spontaneity. Others generally appreciate your solemnity and your intellectual qualities, the originality of your opinions, and the subtlety and keenness of your insights. However, your taste for paradox and provocation may not be for everyone. You are attracted by exploration and discovery and enjoy modernistic or futuristic settings. Although you are more mind-oriented than sensual, you are quite honest when expressing your emotions, which often feel more platonic than passionate.

Born seven to ten days after the full moon, you are said to be a “first quarter” lunar type. This “soli-lunar” configuration means that your character is strong-willed and sometimes proud, always determined to buck convention and innovate. Monotony is unbearable to you, and you chafe under the yoke of routine. As a result, you often run into trouble with authority figures. When overwhelmed by your conscience, you rave about how destructive it is to long for the past, how ridiculous it is to be old-fashioned, and how obsolete the old values are. Generally speaking, your monthly energy flow crests about seven to ten-and-a-half days after the full moon. You would be wise to schedule intensive work phases at that time, as well as ambitious and demanding projects. At that time, your initiatives will be most successful, especially if you are trying to create something new, original, and cutting-edge!
