Bobbi Brown searches for stability. She wants to find a firm, unchanging structure for her life. But her efforts to achieve this ideal are often vain, because unconsciously, she is also inhabited by the opposite desire. Every time she reaches what she believes to be a good balance, she realizes she wants something entirely different. She should become aware that the concepts of stability and balance are difficult to apply to life. By definition, life is movement, change, and perpetual instability.
Bobbi Brown has a paternal complex. As a result, she has trouble finding her identity and developing a personality. She may have lacked a father figure during her childhood, which deprived her of the patterns or models which are usually helpful in structuring a personality. Because she lacked a paternal presence, she was forced to protect herself against negative influences and find her own system in order to grow and feel secure. Although this system was quite useful to her as a child, it has now settled in to such a degree that it interferes with her evolution. Psychological defense mechanisms and crutches which were once useful now encumber her mind or inhibit her developmental efforts. As a result, in certain situations, it is difficult for her to assert herself, and she tends to remain an awkward or passive observer. Because her authoritarian urges are mainly directed at herself rather than others, she sometimes feels guilty about her behavior. She judges herself severely, and sometimes punishes herself by setting difficult tasks for herself. Gradually, she should build up a strong inner discipline and acquire the strength to face the problems of existence in a detached and mature way.
Bobbi Brown’s personality and behavior are disrupted by a contradiction between the masculine and feminine archetypes ruling her psyche. Because her sensitivity is in conflict with her determination, her attitude and performance may sometimes be moody, fluctuating, and uncertain. Usually, she has the feeling she has to make superhuman efforts to succeed in assuaging her yearnings and fulfilling her ambitions. Her unconscious, sensitive side often disapproves of her conscious endeavors and stealthily works to defeat them, causing crucial omissions, mistakes, and gaps which effectively sabotage her plans. In her relationships, the images she builds up and projects on the other are contradictory. As a result, any bond, even if it is pleasant and positive, might also annoy her. She could find it dissatisfying and irritating at the same time.
Bobbi Brown is affectionate by nature, and loves playing a decisive and central role in her life. She is a charmer who needs to be loved and be seen as a consummate art. Aware of her personal magnetism and the power it gives her, Bobbi will make subtle changes in herself to attract positive attention. She is sophisticated and pleased to savor a lifestyle she sees as a consummate art.
Bobbi Brown struggles to fit in with society’s expectations and conventions. She finds it hard to mask her true feelings and to act like a normal person. The usual social values and rewards, like money, respect, and prestige, only mildly interest her. Her reluctance or inability to adapt to the demands of social life sometimes leads to mistakes, like leaving gaps in a job application or making a big mistake when bidding for a contract. But when her financial difficulties clear up, her emotional difficulties usually do too.
Bobbi Brown is an individualist who is convinced that her most precious basic values are freedom and independence. She has thrown off what she perceives as the burden of the convention and customs of her social class and adopted an innovative lifestyle. Her passionate convictions, bordering on proselytism, sometimes trouble her relationships, as she may be an uncompromising partner. She would do well to learn to recognize her own limitations and accept the responsibilities she has to other people, or she is liable to find herself continually embroiled in conflicting relationships. The roots of her somewhat extreme behavior probably lie in her relationship with her father or her teachers in childhood and adolescence. For one reason or another, she may have rejected the paternal image or refused to identify with her father, in the same way as she now refuses to adopt any values related to convention, tradition, or widespread usage. In every important life decision she makes as an adult, she is forced to rely on herself to elaborate the appropriate behavior, and the limits she must impose on her desires in relation to reality and the law.
Bobbi Brown is extremely sensitive and receptive and tends to live in osmosis with her surroundings. Her individuality almost seems to be diluted in a flood of sensations and impressions which are continually washing over her, and she sometimes finds it difficult to communicate her feelings to other people or engage in any structured, analytical thought. This may stem from a misunderstanding with her teachers when she was a child. Unable to understand their disciplinary measures or authority, she may have withdrawn into herself in self-defense. It was then that she constructed her rich inner life, the part of her they could not invade, and cut many of her ties to the outside. Because she enjoyed indulging in her inner life, it may have been difficult for her to acquire an objective vision of reality. As a result, even today, she tends to create imaginary problems for herself, regardless of the objective facts outside. Although her imagination is a source of inspiration and intuition, her fluid inner structure and organization sometimes make it difficult for her to grasp the essence of her dreams and share them with other people. She is not at all combative, and this tends to hinder her efforts to fit into society and assert herself productively. She is likely to prefer fantasy to reality, but her refusal to abandon her unattainable dreams is a psychological trap she has fallen into without realizing it. She must understand that by running away from her obligations and commitments, she only increase the feelings of guilt and incompetence which made reality so distasteful in the first place. Once she free herself from this pernicious process, she has a great deal of potential for fulfilling herself in the outer world, either by devoting herself to some sort of social work or by cultivating her considerable artistic talents.
Bobbi Brown generally tends to be motivated by activities which apply to social needs. She tends to give the best of herself in difficult situations which require crucial choices. Her ability to concentrate and her gift for solving problems by deductive reasoning are her chief resources in crisis situations or at turning points in her life.
Bobbi Brown is extremely sociable, in tune with others, tactful and diplomatic. She is also sensitive and discerning and will avoid anything crude or vulgar. As a result, she is sometimes offended by the harsh demands of existence. Relationships (the couple, or a partnership) take a central role in her life.
Bobbi Brown maintains strong ties with her past, and it often seems difficult for her to open her heart to new people. Her love affairs might exist on the surface level, because her lust and sensual desire rarely turn into a need to understand, protect, and care for the other. Moreover, it is difficult for her to meet partners who combine the ideals of the tender parent and the great lover.
Bobbi Brown is emotional and tends to react suddenly and excessively as soon as her sensitivity is touched. Although she feels that her independence, freedom, and self-sufficiency are fundamental values, she is sometimes frustrated by her need to rely on her family or friends. Moreover, she does not always grant the freedom of other people the same respect as her own. Likewise, she is sometimes angered by expressions of maternal tenderness, as if she feared that it would doom her to eternal dependency. Her ambivalent behavior, full of jagged edges, may be traced back to the relationship she had with her mother or a mother figure. Although she was dependent on them, they may have rejected her. Now this attitude is extended to any situation in which her sensitivity comes into play and emotional bonds are likely to form. To ward off her feelings of dependency, she sometimes tends to become destructive. Based on denial, her reactions might be fierce, impulsive, excessive, erratic, or contradictory.
Bobbi Brown has a sensitive and imaginative mind, which sometimes causes her trouble distinguishing dreams from reality. Her bubbling imagination provides her with a rich source of inspiration for spiritual or creative evolution, but it can be less helpful and positive when it comes to her self-assertion as responsible and self-sufficient. Although her psychic abilities drive her to fulfill herself through artistic activities like painting, drawing, music, or poetry, it may be difficult for her to market her talents in terms of a career. In a relationship, Bobbi Brown is extremely romantic and often sees people in a way that is less than true. Because of her tendency to idealize people, she may be disappointed when their true natures are eventually betrayed.
Bobbi Brown hides her sensitive side and prefers to protect her emotions. She is very sexual and enjoys relationships with people who share her desires. A career that allows her to be around troubled people would be especially rewarding to her.
Bobbi Brown’s personality is dominated by love and affectivity. She is subject to love at first sight, and her gallant heart sometimes leaps forth impulsively; her sensitivity is lively and powerful. Amorous rivalries and conquests may be a recurring theme throughout her life.
Bobbi Brown’s birth chart indicates an emotional function which is usually expressed carefully and reasonably. Distrustful of her emotional urges and somewhat wary of her feelings, she tries to rid herself of all partiality and try to get some perspective and distance before making an emotional commitment.
Bobbi Brown is understanding and knows how to empathize and get whatever she wants without even asking. Her artistic nature requires refined and elegant surroundings. Indeed, she enjoys the social whirl and is a talented hostess. In a relationship, she requires perfect harmony of feeling. Only a scrumptious person who is attentive, admiring, and perfectly understanding will be able to fulfill her.
As a result of her temperament, Bobbi Brown rushes into seduction with an almost juvenile fury. She becomes involved easily and quickly and parts ways just as painlessly. Bored by a relationship that is too serene, she is deeply aroused by argument and disagreement.
Bobbi Brown may be characterized by strong sensual and affectionate impulses which drive her to seek pleasure. Her need for romantic fulfillment may compel her to marry, because she also seeks the legal and social legitimacy the institution of marriage confers on an emotional bond. Indeed, the household is liable to be prosperous and even opulent, as if this offered further evidence that she had indeed achieved success. However, privately, she might be less committed to certain obligations and duties. At worst, she might deny the commitments that her optimism and expansiveness made her rush into too soon. If this were to be the case, the outward image of the couple’s success (wealth and comfort, etc.) would only be a façade which compensated for its emotional impoverishment and failure. Sooner or later, this hypocrisy might provoke a full-blown conflict. A second possibility is that a psychic incompatibility may gradually take root, pitting her romantic nature against the prerogatives of her career.
Bobbi Brown is a complex individual, full of contradictions. She sometimes feels vulnerable emotionally, so she tries to control not only her own feelings and urges, but may also strive to manipulate those of her partners. She aspires to a profound and enduring spiritual unity, but at the same time, the idea of abandoning herself and yielding to the other terrifies her. This anguish may be a source of rather extreme behavior patterns and a somewhat self-focused attitude which could damage the relationship. Because she is guarded and somewhat secretive, she tends to be suspicious and is especially uneasy about spontaneous intimacy, although she is fascinated by sexuality. Within the privacy of the couple, Bobbi Brown will not express her feelings unless she is subject to some tension. Life may be peppered with frequent crises and feuds, arguments and spats which usually act as erotic provocation. This derivation of eroticism from anxiety tends to be one of the fundamental characteristics of her emotional and sexual functioning. As a result, she is likely to be attracted by stormy and complicated relationships.
Bobbi Brown is plodding but realistic and pragmatic. Because she is chiefly preoccupied with the practical aspects of things, she is especially apt to develop more efficient production concepts. Although her good judgment and common sense provide her with an excellent ability to handle the tangible world (she is certainly clever, and can quickly assess the tangible value of things), her thought processes might be relatively impervious to abstract concepts and spiritual awakenings.
Bobbi Brown tries to shun subjectivity and be as objective as possible. Her thoughts are usually structured, and her reasoning, based on objective facts or experience, usually relates to practical goals.
