Bob Siebenberg has a complex personality. He is stirred with contradictory impulses and desires, some of them imperious. Although his rational mind is highly developed and seems to be the source of motivation for his behavior, the most significant realm of his psychology is his subconscious. Therein, a conflict between understanding and feeling is raging, between the psychological functions of thought and sensation (C.G. Jung’s terms). Until this conflict subsides, he might feel a sensation of emptiness. He is troubled by and unable to explain this feeling, which leads him to adopt an attitude of doubt and skepticism. This conflict, and its various ramifications, are the main obstacle to his individuation.

He always survives the worst physical, emotional, or intellectual tests, however, fairly unscathed, because of his ability to be reborn and start afresh. As a partner, he might struggle to make compromises. He may appear frosty and distant at times, and he has a taste for challenging, provocative remarks. With himself, as well as with others, he is sometimes excessive and complicated. In a discussion, he will express strong, honest opinions. In crisis situations, he wishes for his efforts to be noticed. He is obsessed with the problem of death. He tends to believe it holds the secret of life – that death can be overcome. Sometimes his anxiety about death is expressed as a search for answers – how can one learn to live with death, how can one detach oneself from the past and its flesh-curdlingly morbid realities… Decay, immobility, ultimate delivery – these images, which are all symbolically associated with death, sometimes haunt him. Intellectually, he has powerfully developed intellectual faculties which yield the maximum effectiveness for his behavior. Deductive, analytical, prospective, he is at once a researcher, a detective, and a scientist. He is fairly introverted, and his discrimination tends to direct him toward the spheres of inner life. He is astute at drawing rational parallels between phenomena of different origins. His love life will be subject to desire and passion. But since he is more aroused by

You were born seven to ten days after the new moon, which is said to be a “soli-lunar” configuration. This means that you are strong-willed and sometimes proud, always determined to buck convention and innovate. Monotony is unbearable to you, and you chafe under the yoke of routine. As a result, you often run into trouble with authority figures. When overwhelmed by your conscience, you rave about how destructive it is to long for the past, how ridiculous it is to be old-fashioned, and how obsolete the old values are.

At that time, your initiatives will be most successful, especially if you are trying to create something new, original, and cutting-edge!
