Bo Svenson is patient. He is fond of routine, ritual, and any other events or ceremonies which mark the passage of time and the seasons. He 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, he is attached to his possessions and will make every effort to cling to them.
Bo Svenson has great strength of character. His courage and endurance enable him to accomplish even extremely arduous tasks. Although he sometimes behaves impulsively, he generally knows how to plan out an effective strategy, and, as a result, he reaches his goals without meeting any major obstacles. His forcefulness gives him certain leadership skills, which he may implement to creative and constructive ends.
You are a free thinker and individualist who believes that your most precious values are freedom and independence. You have thrown off the constraints of your social class and adopted an innovative lifestyle. Your passionate convictions can sometimes create conflict with your relationships, as you may be uncompromising in your dealings with others. You would do well to learn to recognize your own limitations and accept the responsibilities you have to other people. If you do not learn to do this, you are likely to be embroiled in conflicts repeatedly. The root of your somewhat extreme behavior may lie in your relationship with your father or teachers when you were young. For one reason or another, you may have rejected the paternal image or refused to identify with your father, in the same way as you now refuse to adopt any values related to convention, tradition, or widespread usage. In every important life decision you make as an adult, you are forced to rely on yourself to elaborate the appropriate behavior, and the limits you must impose on your desires in relation to reality and the law.
You are very sensitive and receptive, and you tend to live in osmosis with your surroundings. Your individuality almost seems to be diluted in a flood of sensations and impressions which are continually washing over you, and you sometimes find it difficult to communicate your feelings to other people or engage in any structured, analytical thought. This may stem from a misunderstanding with your teachers when you were a child. Unable to understand their disciplinary measures or authority, you may have withdrawn into yourself in self-defense. It was then that you constructed your rich inner life, the part of you they could not invade, and cut many of your ties to the outside. Because you enjoyed indulging in your inner life, it may have been difficult for you to acquire an objective vision of reality. As a result, even today, you tend to create imaginary problems for yourself, regardless of the objective facts outside. Although your imagination is a source of inspiration and intuition, your fluid inner structure and organization sometimes make it difficult for you to grasp the essence of your dreams and share them with other people. You are not at all combative, and this tends to hinder your efforts to fit into society and assert yourself productively. You are likely to prefer fantasy to reality, but your refusal to abandon your unattainable 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 increase the feelings of guilt and incompetence which made reality so distasteful in the first place. Once you free yourself from this pernicious process, you have a great deal of potential for fulfilling yourself in the outer world, either by devoting yourself to some sort of social work or by cultivating your considerable artistic talents.
Bo Svenson likes to plan things out before doing them. His behavior reflects this tendency. He will usually adopt relatively strict models elaborated on the basis of logical or moral reasons. He does not readily express his personal feelings or emotions, and may sometimes strike others as a rigid person. However, his conscientiousness and application make him thrive in a work environment, and he tends to treat social engagements and activities as a form of duty. Bo Svenson’s natural taste for clarity, detail, and technique would make him successful as a scientific researcher or high-tech designer.
Bo Svenson’s intellect is lively, agile, and sensitive. However, he does not always avail himself of it and may be confused or irrational in some situations. Although he enjoys playing with words, ideas, and concepts, his thought sometimes lacks discipline and structure. He is fairly preoccupied with details and may tend to waste his nervous and mental energy in futile verbal outpourings. Moreover, his feelings sometimes blur his objective vision of phenomena and people, which may cause him to make errors in judgment.
Bo Svenson is optimistic and happy to be alive. He is cheerful, expansive, and pleasant to associate with. He is extremely generous (sometimes to a fault!) and gives of himself and his belongings unstintingly. This positive psychological outlook is the result of a happy childhood and especially an extremely beneficial maternal influence in infancy. He is quite likely to be a professional success; his vision of the world is perfectly adapted to prevailing opinion, and his urges and desires for personal expansion usually elicit a positive reaction from society. By old age, his good reputation and prominence may have earned him fame.
Bo Svenson hides his sensitivity behind a cool exterior. He is conservative, respectful of tradition and convention, and likes to follow the rules. Because he needs stability to alleviate his feelings of frustration and sometimes emotional dependency, he has great faith in contracts which seal relationships. His ties to his past are fairly strong. They are a source of reassurance and safety, because his parents likely gave a lot to him.
Bo Svenson is looking for the ideal love. He tends to idealize his friends and lovers, and may prefer to dream of his soulmate instead of making love to one. He is more in love with the idea of love than anything else. His idealism may hide a fear of truly committing himself to a relationship; he tries to intellectualize everything. In time, two options will seem clear to him: an amorous friendship based on shared ideas and intellectual exchange, or an open relationship, free of all constraints except mutual respect.
Bo Svenson’s birth chart indicates an emotional function which is expressed in a direct and fairly impulsive way. He enjoys reaching out to other people and making discoveries. An eternal teenager with his gaze riveted on the future, he is imbued with an eminently subjective and personal idealism.
Bo Svenson is a romantic and idealistic person who is modest and inhibited. He tends to stay in the background and live vicariously through his imagination. Reality is less rosy, and his human qualities and virtues as a loving and devoted companion are not always recognized. To succeed in a happy relationship, he must become aware that he is the source of the positive or negative energy he invests and that in love and in life, he will reap what he sow.
Bo Svenson is very sincere, and he loves whole-heartedly. Loving friendships will play a major role in his destiny. He is independent-minded and will be happier in an open relationship than in a marriage, unless this is based on great mutual freedom. However, he is likely to marry too young or on an impulse. A second relationship with a person he admires for their generous and free-thinking nature will bring him greater happiness.
Bo Svenson may be characterized by strong urges for sensual and affectionate pleasure. These drives may compel you to seek out a romantic partner, as you also desire the legal and social legitimacy marriage confers. Indeed, the household may be prosperous and even opulent, as if this offered further evidence that you have truly achieved success. However, privately, you might be less committed to certain obligations and duties. At worst, you might deny the commitments that your optimism and expansiveness made you rush into too soon. If this were to be the case, the outward image of the couple’s success (wealth and comfort, etc.) would only be a façade which compensated for its emotional impoverishment and failure. Sooner or later, this hypocrisy might provoke a full-blown conflict. Alternatively, a psychic incompatibility may gradually take root, pitting your romantic nature against the prerogatives of your career.
You are hypersensitive and tend to relive the anxieties, apprehensions, and romantic absolutes of your first love relationships, which occurred around the ages of 13-14 years or 20-21 years. You are exquisitely sensitive, but almost completely barricaded behind a layer of aloofness. You will not settle for anything less than eternal commitment, total harmony, and absolute loyalty. You are sometimes presumed to be cold, even by those close to her. You usually hide your emotional reactions or do not even allow them to reach the level of your consciousness, in an effort to protect your sensitivity, which you see as your weak point. You are fairly vulnerable, even in the intimacy of a stable and established relationship. Usually, you will disguise your strong feelings as a kind of possessiveness or even jealousy. Certain misfortunes may arouse a negative emotional state inside you, and you feel unworthy of the love which is lavished on you. This psychological prohibition which rules over all of your desires and affects should loosen with the passage of time; likewise, your fear of approaching the other will diminish. As a result, the second part of your romantic life will be more rewarding. In any case, if you want to experience a harmonious love relationship and gratify yourself emotionally, the defense mechanisms you have elaborated to make yourself inaccessible to others will have to be dismantled. Any profound relationship will also require that you learn how to forget yourself occasionally in the other.
Bo Svenson is a complex individual, full of contradictions. On the outside, he seems detached and aloof, but on the inside, he is extremely vulnerable. Because he sometimes feels emotional vulnerability, he tries to control not only his own feelings and urges, but may also strive to manipulate those of his partners. He aspires to a profound spiritual unity, but at the same time, the idea of abandoning oneself and yielding to the other terrifies him. This anguish may be a source of rather extreme behavior patterns and a somewhat self-focused attitude which could damage the relationship. Because he is guarded and somewhat secretive, he tends to be suspicious and is especially uneasy about spontaneous intimacy, although he is fascinated by sexuality. Within the privacy of the couple, he will not express his feelings unless he 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 his emotional and sexual functioning. As a result, he is likely to be attracted by stormy and complicated relationships.
Bo Svenson has a rather irrational mind and a voracious intellect, which is usually subject to the rule of his prolific imagination. Although he is likely to have flashes of intuition which may prove to be correct, his thought processes are sometimes messy and confused. His mind, which is oriented in many different directions at the same time, is ruled by his emotions and feelings. In tune with psychic and parapsychic phenomena, his thinking requires only the adjunct of structure to rise from the level of a blurry, uncertain, undifferentiated mass to that of a really significant vision with a grip on the real world.
