Bob Rae is a fiery, emotional creature. As a result of the preponderance of emotion, sensation, and feeling in his psychological make-up, Bob Rae has acquired a deep sense of his individuality and uniqueness. He sometimes feels “different” – set apart from others. In order to justify this idea of himself, Bob Rae attempts to behave differently, to impress the crowd, and the product of his efforts is usually rather grandiose and exaggerated. It’s a self-perpetuating bind, because his impressive deeds usually earn recognition for him, and reinforce his self-assurance and his certainty that he does indeed stand head and shoulders above the rest. Bob Rae sometimes makes an attempt to bluff and show off with an emotional display. He likes to take risks and give people advice. Nevertheless, at the basis of his conduct, there is a feeling of social anxiety, which is probably unconscious or unconfessed. He may fear being absorbed or enslaved by society. The positive side of this unconscious anxiety is that it drives him to create, to counteract the deeply felt effects of time and the masses on his ego. By creating something, Bob Rae can make his own individual mark on the world; he can organize it to reflect his own image, instead of allowing himself to be submerged by it. The preceding comments about creating the world in your own image are strong indications that Bob Rae seeks to identify with his superego. The difference between his ideal of himself and the individual he knows himself to be in truth, measured in terms of his social recognition or the recognition of his creations (children, works of art, etc.), will determine his state of mind. It is therefore important for Bob Rae to make these images match to a certain extent, to reduce the gap as much as possible. The psychological dynamic described earlier explains many of the pluses and minuses in his personality. His dignity and self-assurance may border on vanity; his strong instinct and ambition combined with his somewhat exaggerated individualism incline him to be self-focused. He may be proud, but he is also courageous, determined, and generous. Bob Rae has the skills of an educator or an artist; moreover, he is mysteriously lucky.

Born on the third day before the new moon, Bob Rae is said to be of the “balsamic moon” type. This soli-lunar configuration gives him a spiritualistic character closely attached to generous humanitarian ideals. He is sometimes sorely tried to limit himself to the narrow scope of individual ambition. Indeed, he aims for a humanitarian ideal which would include the outcasts and the unfortunate. He fervently hopes the meek will inherit the earth. To bring about this ideal, he is likely to seize every resource placed at his disposal: physical effort, money (if he has it), speech, his writings, and his poetic or artistic talents. However, he should be wary of his unconscious guilt feelings. Actually, there is no reason for him to devote himself to his mission entirely; a simple daily effort should suffice to express his philosophy and free his conscience. Usually, the three days preceding the new moon will be time in the monthly lunar cycle most favorable to his activities and his general energy level.
