Bob Peterson is a serious, 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 Peterson is 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 is skillful, meticulous, conscientious, and efficient, but his lack of self confidence and personal assurance hinder 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 is aware that early success is often short-lived and fragile and that time rewards those who are patient, which, in his case, is true. The psychological mechanisms described above are 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 his behavior all his 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 lazinessThe so-called “Saturnian” phases (at age 7, 14, 21, 28 or 29, and 35 years) will be transitional periods that give him an opportunity to resolve this complex in real life.
Bob Peterson values freedom and independence. He expends a great deal of energy to ensure that his private life expresses these values. To avoid being tied down, he is skittish when it comes to any profound involvement in a relationship. As a consequence, he might intellectualize his emotions and feelings and feel as though he can live more easily on friendship than on love. Extremely socially-minded but idealistic, he almost certainly feels an affinity with the ideals of some social reform movement. His imagination looks to the future.
Bob Peterson is emotional and tends to react suddenly and excessively as soon as his sensitivity is touched. Although he feels that his independence, freedom, and self-sufficiency are fundamental values, he is sometimes frustrated by his need to rely on his family or friends. Moreover, he does not always grant the freedom of other people the same respect as his own. Likewise, he is sometimes angered by expressions of maternal tenderness, as if he feared that it would doom him to eternal dependency. His ambivalent behavior, full of jagged edges, may be traced back to the relationship he had with his mother or a mother figure. Although he was dependent on them, they may have rejected him. Now this attitude is extended to any situation in which his sensitivity comes into play and emotional bonds are liable to form. To ward off his feelings of dependency, he sometimes tends to become destructive. Based on denial, his reactions might be fierce, impulsive, excessive, erratic, or contradictory.
Bob Peterson’s sensitivity may sometimes overwhelm his partners, and his compassion for the other is profound. He readily sacrifices his own interest to others, to provide help and assistance. A romantic as well as an idealist, Bob Peterson sometimes lacks discernment in the choice of his partners. He is fairly confused and evasive and has trouble expressing his feelings clearly. Nevertheless, he is capable of devoting himself entirely to the person he loves. He has a tendency to daydream and become lost in himself.
Bob Peterson’s birth chart indicates that he has an emotional function that 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 Peterson is fairly independent and has trouble finding emotional fulfillment. His youthful idealism subsided into disillusionment which has taught him to shield his sensitivity by being critical or ironic. Because he fears being overwhelmed by his feelings and does not readily yield to love, he prefers friendship. His ideal partner would be original, tender, and reassuring, apt to instill cheerfulness in their relationship, and bright enough to stimulate him intellectually. Were he to marry too young or too soon, he might find himself trapped in a stultifying situation.
Bob Peterson is emotional, and when it comes to romance, he lives in a dream world, all too often going from one lover to the next in search of an impossible love. His volatile moods leave him floundering in confusion. Because he tends to get involved with people who are elusive or in love with their own independence, it is likely that his life will be marked by a number of relationships. Each of these could bring great upheaval.
Bob Peterson 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 Peterson is a flexible individual who draws on sudden flashes of intuition as well as logical, rational thought. He has progressive, inventive, and sometimes utopian ideas that relate to human or social problems. He always strives to be in the vanguard, creating a better world for the future.
Bob Peterson 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 Peterson has a great deal of intuition but sometimes has problems organizing his thought processes and making an intellectual commitment. The concepts of boundary and structure are inimical to his mind, which is open and all-encompassing, premonitory, and web-like. His thoughts may be verbally indeterminate, vague, and ill defined. He tends to understand or sense things globally, without always noticing their component parts. Usually, he can’t see the trees for the forest. In daily life, although his perceptions are lively and subtle, he may display a kind of absent-mindedness out of a fear of annoying people with his shrewdness or of fighting to assert himself. His imagination sometimes escapes from the confines of logic, cringing from a confrontation with reality. This unwillingness to face the real world may cause relationship or career challenges.
