Bob Arum is a steadfast individual who tries to stay grounded. His ambitions are strong, and he will always be seeking a higher social position. He sometimes adopts a strategy of solitude and introversion.
Bob Arum has a great potential for creative, constructive accomplishments; however, it is sometimes difficult for him to gain access to this part of himself. He is confident in himself and life but may tend to be nonchalant. Sometimes he needs a little stimulation to get himself rolling and take some initiative. His optimism and inner certainty do not always drive him to give his utmost efforts to achieve a goal. The communications skills he possesses are an advantage as well as a handicap. He makes use of his theatrical gifts, convincing eloquence, and ability to listen. The best careers for him would be teaching, communications, philosophy, the legal profession, theater, and public relations.
Bob Arum enjoys sharing and needs contact with others. He is free and unconstrained in his relations with others, rarely allowing himself to be influenced by convention or prevailing opinion; he associates with whomever he pleases. This attitude makes his life refreshing and exciting, and he is never bored. In career terms, Bob Arum is quite gifted for any field related to communication, where his intellectual singularity and lively wit would make him an amazing hit. He would also be likely to succeed in any activity where the work required a multidisciplinary approach: teaching, advertising, politics, etc.
Bob Arum is a very sensitive person who is receptive to the surroundings. His individuality almost seems to be diluted in a flood of sensations and impressions which are continually washing over him, and it sometimes difficult for him to communicate his feelings to other people. This tide of emotion is a source of inspiration and intuition, but his fluid inner structure and organization sometimes make it difficult for him to grasp the essence of his dreams and share them with other people. He is not at all combative, and this tendency hampers his efforts to fit into society and assert himself productively. He is likely to prefer fantasy to reality, but his refusal to abandon his unattainable dreams is a psychological trap he has fallen into without realizing it. He must understand that by running away from his obligations and commitments, he only increases the feelings of guilt which made reality so distasteful in the first place. Once he free himself from this pernicious process, he has a great deal of potential for fulfilling himself in the outer world, either by devoting himself to some sort of social work or by cultivating his considerable artistic talents.
Bob Arum feels physical and mental freedom are vital to him. His youth and home may have been of the rootless, wandering type, which could have given him a taste for movement and independence. He needs to be aware that his life has a purpose and hunt for it in various belief systems, both traditional and new age. In fact, he has an unmistakable gift for philosophy. The faraway appeals to him, and travel is likely to be an important aspect of his life.
Bob Arum feels resentful when he has to impose limitations on himself, and he sometimes tries to dodge obligations and commitments. The obstacles and hindrances reality places on his path to personal and social development depress him. He sometimes broods bitterly about the frustrations to his self-fulfillment and might have a fairly pessimistic vision of society and its possibilities.
Bob Arum felt the strong urge to leave the room. He had never been so embarrassed in his life.
Bob Arum is sometimes afraid to love. The world of his feelings is characterized by a certain chill and restraint. But he is not unfeeling; on the contrary, his sensitivity is so delicate that he is careful to protect it. His determination to maintain control of his feelings and force his emotions to obey the laws of reason may stand in the way of intimacy and joy.
Bob Arum’s birth chart indicates an emotional function which is usually expressed carefully and reasonably. He distrusts his emotional urges and somewhat wary of his feelings, so he tries to rid himself of all partiality and get some perspective and distance before making an emotional commitment.
Bob Arum is loyal and righteous. He often thinks and behaves freely. He has an imperious need to express himself, to be on the move, and to externalize his energy. When he does decide to commit himself, he will likely accept marriage, because legal validity is important to him. No doubt he will choose a companion who shares his taste for liberty and new horizons.
Bob Arum is sensible and level-headed on the outside, but he is a true romantic at heart. He dreams of a devoted admirer who will carry him off, far from home and who, most of all, will cure his latent emotional depression. But real life is more mundane and he may end up with a partner who won’t share the burden of practical constraints and responsibilities and chases after adventure. Maturity will help him to make a second relationship a happier one.
Bob Arum has an ardent and amorous character, and his relationships are enlivened by intensity and passion. A charmer perpetually engaged in a quest for the ideal love, he is often more in love with the idea of love than with a partner. As a result, his love life may be subject to some instability. He is generally attracted to original people who defy norms, standards, and classifications, and expect them to amaze and fascinate him. His greatest contradictions surface when an intimate relationship is established. Although he merges his ego entirely into the couple, he is likely to demand a total autonomy and liberty which are inimical to intimacy. If his partner charms and captivates him long enough, there is some possibility that they will form a more solid bond with him; otherwise, he is likely to yield to his need for novelty and fall under the spell of an entirely different person who exerts a new kind of charm for him.
Midlife may be a turning point for him from this point of view. His contradictory attitude may in some ways hide a compulsion to reject and deny the bonds of dependency inherent to a love relationship. His behavior enables him to remain aloof, to commit himself only halfway without consciously admitting it to himself, and to avoid feeling guilty if and when he loses interest. An insatiable appetite for novelty and exaltation sometimes keeps him from forming stable relationships. Indeed, he is tormented by the struggle between his undeniable need for affection and an equally imperious desire for personal progress and emancipation. As a result of this inner turmoil, his romantic aspirations are usually sabotaged sooner or later by his conviction that his partner has become an obstacle to his individual progress. Because he thinks of love as a restraint, he may even eventually consciously refuse any emotional approach to love interests. As an ascetic, he will try to deflect the love function from its natural target and use the energy and bliss it generates for other purposes, the process psychologists call sublimation. However, he is also likely to meet “the one” who inspires him to initiate a change in his behavior.
Bob Arum has a great emotional ideal, full of subtlety and tenderness. However, he tends to be overwhelmed by his imagination and may not be selective enough when choosing a partner. His romantic and trusting nature may make him vulnerable. Although he strives to establish peaceful, uncomplicated relations, he sometimes experiences painful disappointments. His artistic delicacy and refinement provide him with a sincere love of the arts, music, and literature. He is likely to be a gifted poet.
Bob Arum considers the input from his subjectivity and emotions as static which he tries to tune out to go straight to the essence of knowledge. As a result, regardless of his field of study, he tries to obtain perspective. He will elaborate a thought on the basis of fairly cold, abstract logic, supported by sober, concise, and immaculate reasoning. His choice areas of study could be mathematics, philosophy, legislation, or political science. Ideologies, theories, and any other system of reasoning could serve as “food for thought” for him.
Bob Arum tries to shun subjectivity and be as objective as possible. His thoughts are usually structured, and his reasoning, based on objective facts or experience, usually relates to practical goals.
Bob Arum is a very persuasive person. He has a lot of charm and can smooth over the rough edges of what he has to say when needed. He also has a skill for orating. If he chose to, Bob Arum could be a great public speaker or an actor. He also has a gift for writing and for dance.
Bob Arum has a lively and agile spirit. He is curious and open-minded, approaching various life experiences without either dogmatism or prejudice. As a result of the liveliness of his mind, he tends to have an opinion on every subject, but he does not always have the patience or perspective necessary to examine a subject and gain in-depth knowledge of it. Bob Arum enjoys manipulating expressions and concepts and amuses himself with witty remarks, satire, and controversy. If Bob Arum learned to control his flow of words better and elaborate his thoughts more, he might make a talented communicator. Because Bob Arum is often too hasty to formulate and construct the arguments which would back up and inform his ideas, he is sometimes misunderstood. Bob Arum is often blind to the rashness of his judgments and convinced they are well-founded and objective, which sometimes irritates the people around him. If Bob Arum were to succeed in disciplining his mind somewhat, he would have innumerable opportunities to apply his communications skills to a great career. However, he would do well to be careful of his nerves.
