Bob Hartman was a meticulous and dogged worker, gifted for tasks which require great precision and discipline. He might struggle with pessimism about his own self-worth and try to compensate for this feeling by constantly keeping busy and devoting himself almost entirely to those close to him.
Bob Hartman’s personality and behavior are liable to be disrupted by a contradiction between the feminine and masculine archetypes ruling his psyche. Because his sensitivity is in conflict with his determination, his attitude and performance may be moody, fluctuating, and uncertain. Usually, he has the feeling he has to make superhuman efforts to succeed in assuaging his yearnings and fulfilling his ambitions. His unconscious, sensitive side often disapproves of his conscious endeavors and stealthily works to defeat them, causing crucial omissions, mistakes, and gaps which effectively sabotage his plans. In his relationships, the images he builds up and projects on the other are contradictory. As a result, any bond, even if it is pleasant and positive, also grates on his nerves. He finds it dissatisfying and irritating at the same time.
Bob Hartman is extremely vigorous and energetic and has an immense need to assert his individuality. His attitudes and actions are actually motivated by an unconscious desire for power. They puzzle the people close to him, who cannot understand whether his behavior is the result of pure selfishness or merely of an excess of energy. Bob is lively, alert, and determined, but he is too easily distracted from goals by futile competition or opportunities to exhibit his power. He has a short temper and must learn to control his impulsiveness, which might expose him to a great deal of unnecessary conflict.
Bob Hartman is a free thinker 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 Hartman is hypersensitive, receptive to the mood in his surroundings, and unconsciously able to perceive the parapsychic signals or aura people give off. As a result, he is extremely compassionate and ready to devote himself to their well-being. His imagination has formulated the dream of an ideal life, and he sometimes feels ill-equipped for the realities of this existence. He tends to dodge difficult situations. With his partner, he seeks fusion.
Bob Hartman 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 Hartman sometimes finds sensitive and emotive, and cringe from life, passively hope for a better future, utopian society, or transcendent state of consciousness. However, by taking refuge in dreams, he may expose himself to adversity, both socially and in his private life.
Bob Hartman has a difficult time trusting people and often reacts in a way that is destructive. His sensitivity makes it difficult for him to depend on others and he often feels like he needs to be independent. This attitude is due to the fact that he was rejected by his mother which led to him developing a fear of dependency. To avoid feeling this way, he often acts in a way that is destructive. This includes being impulsive, excessive, and erratic.
Bob Hartman is looking for the ideal love and tends to idealize his friends and lovers. A bizarre character, he 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.
Bob Hartman’s birth chart indicates an emotional function which is usually expressed carefully and reasonably. Distrustful of his emotional urges and somewhat wary of his feelings, he tries to rid himself of all partiality and try to get some perspective and distance before making an emotional commitment.
Bob Hartman is subject to anxiety and sees himself as a fragile person at the mercy of uncontrollable emotions and feelings strong enough to overwhelm him. He tends to resign himself to circumstances and is liable to confine himself to a state of regretful self-denial, unless he seize an opportunity to forge his moral strength in a constructive relationship, a religion, or a belief which lends his structure. His choice of a partner is thus crucial. Only a person who is tender yet strong, and reassuring yet flexible will be apt to help him find emotional fulfillment.
Bob Hartman is equally sensitive to both outer and inner beauty. He may arouse great love or he could become a muse and inspire great works of art. He could find happiness with a partner who knows how to awaken his more exalted emotions and can communicate with him on an artistic or spiritual plane.
Bob Hartman has a great emotional ideal. 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 Hartman is a complex individual who is often fraught with anxiety. Because of this, he is drawn to stormy and complicated relationships. He strives for profound spiritual unity, but at the same time, the idea of surrendering himself to the other terrifies him. This anguish often leads to extreme behavior patterns and a self-focused attitude which could damage the relationship. Because he is guarded and secretive, Bob is suspicious and uneasy about spontaneous intimacy. Life is often peppered with frequent crises and feuds, arguments and spats which act as erotic provocation. This tendency to derive eroticism from anxiety is one of the fundamental characteristics of Bob’s emotional and sexual functioning. As a result, he is likely to be attracted to stormy and complicated relationships.
Bob Hartman sometimes 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 Hartman 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 Hartman has a structured mind and penetrating intelligence, but his thought processes tend to be somewhat plodding. This slow pace may be the consequence of some failure or humiliation during his formative years. Bob is fairly inhibited and pessimistic and tends to doubt in himself and his intellectual skills despite his undeniable gifts as a thinker. He should become aware that his thought patterns and habits are the sign that he is on the brink of a really big breakthrough which will give him an understanding of the complexity of things and phenomena; however, it will take time and effort. Bob’s mind is deep and accurate and is attracted by the essence of things and their fundamental structure. As a result, Bob is particularly suited to the study of mathematics, architecture, engineering, or perhaps even politics. His contribution to society will probably be most lasting and effective in the field of knowledge and expertise. Whatever career he chooses, Bob should learn to work alone, because he tends to be uncomfortable in some surroundings. He will also have to learn to conquer his impatience, because he tends to waste time agonizing over deadlines and schedules. Moreover, a lack of self-confidence could cause him to be fairly conventional and respectful of time-honored ways. Instead, Bob should find the courage to question his convictions.
