What does Bob Geldof’s psychology tell us about them?

Bob Geldof sensed that he needed others in order to structure himself. Intuitively sensing this need, he sought a balance between his individual ambitions and need to give to others and be loved and recognized in return. However, it sometimes eluded him. Marriage and friendship could be realms to which he was especially devoted, but they may also prove to be a source of conflict and disillusion.

Bob Geldof:

I don’t always feel in tune with society’s rules and conventions. The mask of sociability most well-adapted people wear is difficult for me to assume, and it is hard for me to act out the roles expected of me as a normal member of the community. The usual social values and rewards, like money, respect, and prestige, only mildly interest me. My refusal or inability to play the social game may make it hard for me to find a job, which may have negative consequences on my financial and legal status. Reluctant and unwilling to adapt to the demands of social life, I sometimes unwittingly make mistakes when a new project is in the planning stages. For example, I may leave gaps in a job application, botch up an interview with a prospective employer, or make a big mistake when bidding for a contract. But my financial difficulties may clear up when my emotional ones do.

Bob Geldof was sober and reserved and may even strike people as rigid and austere at times. Perhaps he was raised in an atmosphere of rigor and sobriety as a child, and, as a result, became an adult a little too fast. In any case, he quickly acquired a spirit of self-sufficiency and a strong sense of his personal dignity and worth. At work, he was skillful, meticulous, conscientious, and efficient, but his lack of self confidence and personal assurance hindered his decision-making skills. Although he would deserve a prominent executive position, he might refuse any that are offered due to his fear of being in the limelight. He was aware that early success is often short-lived and fragile and that time rewards those who are patient, which, in his case, was true. The psychological mechanisms described above were probably the result of a paternal complex. In childhood, his identity may have been too strongly attached to that of his father or a father figure, for one of the following reasons: the bond with his father was too close, his father was absent and/or idealized, his father was too strict, etc. In any case, this psychological particularity can act either as a handicap or as an opportunity for the individual to overcome yourself. It will result in two groups of opposite but complementary reactions which will rule your behavior all your 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 you an opportunity to resolve this complex in real life.

Bob Geldof experienced friction with others. His vision of other people was sometimes clouded by feelings of insecurity, and his need to obtain acceptance at any price sometimes drove him to make too many concessions or compromises.

Bob Geldof is an ardent free thinker and individualist who is convinced that his most precious basic values are freedom and independence. He has thrown off what he perceives as the burden of the convention and customs of his social class and adopted an innovative lifestyle. His passionate convictions, bordering on proselytism, 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.

Bob Geldof is a very sensitive person who is very receptive to his surroundings. He often finds it difficult to communicate his feelings to other people because he is constantly inundated with sensations and impressions. This tide of emotion is a source of inspiration and intuition, but due to his lack of inner structure and organization, it is difficult for him to grasp the essence of his dreams and share them with other people. He is not at all combative, and this hinders his efforts to fit into society and assert himself productively. His tendency to prefer fantasy to reality and his refusal to abandon his unattainable dreams is a psychological trap he has fallen into without realizing it. He must understand that by escaping from his obligations and commitments, he only increases the feelings of guilt and incompetence 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 the community or by cultivating his considerable artistic talents.

Bob Geldof was physically and mentally free. He enjoyed youth and the freedom to wander. He had a strong desire to find his purpose in life and found it in various belief systems. He had a gift for philosophy and was attracted to the faraway. He was likely to travel in the future.

Bob Geldof has a lively and curious intelligence, the very opposite of empty rhetoric and studiousness. He is agile and adaptable and can not only analyze difficult situations objectively but also demonstrate a profound comprehension when faced with a psychological problem.

Bob Geldof maintains strong ties with his past, and it often seems difficult for him to open his heart to new people. His love affairs exist on the surface level, because his lust and sensual desire rarely turn into a need to understand, protect, and care for the other. Moreover, it is difficult for him to meet partners who combine the ideals of the tender parent and the great lover.

Bob Geldof 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.

Bob Geldof was optimistic and happy to be alive. He was a cheerful, expansive, pleasant associate to have. He was extremely generous (sometimes to a fault!) and gave of himself and his belongings unstintingly. This positive psychological outlook was the result of a happy childhood and especially an extremely beneficial maternal influence in infancy. He was quite likely to be a professional success; his vision of the world was perfectly adapted to prevailing opinion, and his urges and desires for personal expansion usually elicited a positive reaction from society. By old age, his good reputation and prominence may have earned him fame.

Bob Geldof 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.

Bob Geldof is a very shy person when it comes to matters of the heart. He is reserved and discreet and does not always readily express his feelings. He is sensitive and giving, wishing to be of service to those he loves. He would do well to trust that he deserves to be made as happy as he makes his partner.

Bob Geldof’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, Bob is imbued with an eminently subjective and personal idealism.

Bob Geldof was feeling romantic, cheerful, and seductive as he attracted affection and success. He was quite sociable and genuinely devoted to everyone’s happiness, and the one who knew how to appreciate and pamper him would find him to be truly a prize. Marriage should provide him with an entertaining lifestyle, which included contact with prominent people or the artistic world.

Bob Geldof tends to be wary of passion and sometimes tries to make his feelings obey reason and logic. He keeps a cool head, observing from afar the romantic imbroglios of others, which he enjoys analyzing and deciphering. He is skillful at playing hard-to-get or at any other little tricks or techniques which will ensure his success when he wants it. He is likely to remain uncommitted until middle age, keeping his hand in (as it were) with little adventures and romps. But he may change after midlife.

Bob Geldof has the fiery, importunate nature of a fervent lover. Indeed, affairs of the heart are one of Bob’s main purposes in life. His personal charm and magnetism give him nearly irresistible powers of seduction, and nearly every one of his well-aimed attempts at conquest leads to the fulfillment and satisfaction of his desires. Due to his impulsiveness and impatience to initiate new encounters, Bob’s approach to members of the other sex may sometimes lack delicacy.

Bob Geldof has a mental aptitude for comparing, evaluating, and weighing information. This intellectual modus operandi has enabled him to develop an innate sense of values, both artistic and ethical, as well as a remarkable ability to relate to other people. His appreciative, conciliatory attitude makes him a skillful diplomat able to untangle conflict situations deftly and with ease. In other situations, his artistic spirit is sensitive to a wide variety of harmonies.

Bob Geldof expresses his thoughts and ideas in direct, spontaneous outbursts. He is fairly extroverted and eager to discover and understand the outer world. An idealist, he looks forward to a bright future but is sometimes subjective and reckless.

Bob Geldof tends to make mistakes in judgment, and his understanding of things is not always in tune with social realities or prevailing opinion. His judgments tend to be hasty; his decisions are reckless. Moreover, he tends to overestimate his abilities and usually aims higher than might be realistic. Once an enterprise or project is underway, he may try to avoid obstacles by dodging certain duties. Because his vision of the world differs somewhat from social realities, he should be extremely careful and scrupulous in regard to legal matters, in order to avoid any complications of that type. He is sometimes slightly dishonest in his relations; he may break promises or attempt to duck responsibility. However, he should realize that such conduct toward other people is also a form of unconscious self-loathing. If he continues to behave in such a way, he is exposing himself to the same lack of sincerity from his partners.
