Bobby Sherman searches for stability in life. However, he constantly finds himself wanting something different. Stability and balance are difficult to achieve in life, because life is always moving, changing, and unstable.
At the moment of your birth, the two celestial “lights” (the sun and the moon) were symmetrically aligned. This was a portent of harmony between the masculine and feminine archetypes, which was extremely beneficial. It was the source of balance and understanding between the two main psychological realms which may be said to compose the personality. You thus enjoyed a positive complementarity and understanding between the conscious and unconscious aspects of your psyche, between your determination and your routines, between your drive for self-assertion and your receptivity, your ideal and your sensitivity. Your parents almost certainly reflected a positive image of the marriage relationship to you, and it was likely that they encouraged you to develop your own individuality. As a result, you were and are able to be comfortable with yourself as you are instead of striving to attain your parents’ ideal. This has definitely contributed to the maintenance of a good relationship with them and the rest of the family. In your emotional relationships with your peers, one of the effects of the masculine/feminine harmony is that the images your ego projects on the other are especially constructive. The bonds of the relationship are not felt to be constraints, the energy which flows between the two people is a source of mutual happiness, not regret. No major personal conflicts are projected onto the “other” – that is, the significant other.
Bobby Sherman has a taste for luxury and magnificence, for a dazzling social life and a distinguished career. When things are going well for him, he tends to think of himself as the center of the universe, an attitude which those close to him do not always appreciate. Although he is quite likely to succeed in his ambition to become wealthy and popular and lead a remarkable life in the outer world, his lack of moderation and overweening self-confidence expose him to some danger. His exaggerated optimism could create difficulties by causing him to make errors in judgment.
Bobby Sherman tends to have a profound and fertile inner life and a prolific imagination, but his energy resources are not always sufficient to follow through on and accomplish his multitude of dreams. He tends to live in osmosis with his environment, and effort and action take a heavy toll on him. Usually, he understands phenomena and events intuitively, without really making any effort; so he is not in the habit of disciplining or shaping his thought processes. Like his thoughts, his personality is rather amorphous and disorganized. As a result of this lack of structure, he may have some trouble asserting his individuality and making some personal contribution to society through his career. His tendency to shut out reality and dream impossible dreams, like his refusal of responsibility and duty, may be a source of some difficulty for him.
Lively and expressive, Bobby Sherman has a personality which is sometimes agitated but straightforward. Unconscious feelings of insecurity compel him to act and sometimes to seek the admiration of others. As a result, he is unable to bear idleness and routine, and he is in search of perpetual excitement. His reactions to others are highly individual and depend on the mood he is in at any given moment. A person of decision, a businessperson or an athlete, he often personifies boldness and impetuosity. His love life is liable to be fiery, as it obeys the imperatives of his desire for freedom and independence, and his need for change.
Bobby Sherman has a lively and curious intelligence, the very opposite of empty rhetoric and studiousness. He is agile and adaptable and can not only analyze difficult situations objectively but also demonstrate a profound comprehension when faced with a psychological problem.
Bobby Sherman maintains strong ties with his past, and it often seems difficult for him to open his heart to new people. His love affairs might exist on the surface level, because his lust and sensual desire rarely turn into a need to understand, protect, and care for the other. Moreover, it is difficult for him to meet partners who combine the ideals of the tender parent and the great lover.
Bobby Sherman is optimistic and happy to be alive. He is cheerful, expansive, and pleasant to associate with. He is extremely generous (sometimes to a fault!) and gives of himself and his belongings unstintingly. This positive psychological outlook is the result of a happy childhood and especially an extremely beneficial maternal influence in infancy. Bobby Sherman is likely to be a professional success; his vision of the world is perfectly adapted to prevailing opinion, and his urges and desires for personal expansion usually elicit a positive reaction from society. By old age, his good reputation and prominence may have earned him fame.
Bobby Sherman tends to keep to himself, preferring to stay out of the limelight. He is not always forthcoming with his feelings, preferring to keep his emotions hidden. He is very passionate about sex, and his relationships are usually heated affairs, driven by his desires. He enjoys getting to know people on a deeper level, understanding their hidden motivations.
In matters of the heart, Bobby Sherman is fairly shy, reserved, and discreet. Even in intimacy, he remains modest and does not always readily express his feelings. He’s sensitive and giving, wishing to be of service to those he loves. He would do well to trust that he deserves to be made as happy as he makes his partners.
Bobby Sherman’s birth chart indicates that he has an emotional function which is usually expressed carefully and reasonably. Sherman distrusts his emotional urges and is 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.
As a result of this conflict between the conscious, active, masculine principle of Bobby Sherman’s psyche and the unconscious, passive, feminine principle, Bobby Sherman is continually subject to nervous tension, which wears him out and exhausts him. His mind and body are always feverishly active. Bobby Sherman always tends to do too much, to become obsessed with insignificant details, or to panic when faced with the unexpected. Bobby Sherman is likely to marry a partner who’s younger than he, either chronologically or in terms of their sense of duty. But perhaps his second marriage will be more reasonable and satisfying.
Bobby Sherman is sometimes rather uncomfortable in the world of emotion, and so is more aware of his companion’s financial resources. However, he will be quite attached to his domestic life and will demonstrate great emotional loyalty. He could look forward to a harmonious and happy marriage with a partner who runs an efficient household.
Bobby Sherman has the fiery, importunate nature of a fervent lover. Indeed, affairs of the heart are one of his main purposes in life. His personal charm and magnetism give him nearly irresistible powers of seduction, and nearly every one of his well-aimed attempts at conquest leads to the fulfillment and satisfaction of his desires. Due to his impulsiveness and impatience to initiate new encounters, his approach to potential partners may sometimes lack delicacy.
You are an ardent and amorous person, and your relationships are enlivened by intensity and passion. A charmer perpetually engaged in a quest for the ideal love, you are often more in love with the idea of love than with a partner. As a result, your love life may be subject to some instability. You are generally attracted to original people who defy norms, standards, and classifications, and expect them to amaze and fascinate you. Your greatest contradictions surface when an intimate relationship is established. Although you merge your ego entirely into the couple, you are likely to demand a total autonomy and liberty which are inimical to intimacy. If your partner charms and captivates you long enough, there is some possibility that they will form a more solid bond with you; otherwise, you are likely to yield to your need for novelty and fall under the spell of an entirely different person who exerts a new kind of charm for you.
Midlife may be a turning point for you from this point of view. Your contradictory attitude may in some ways hide a compulsion to reject and deny the bonds of dependency inherent to a love relationship. Your behavior enables you to remain aloof, to commit yourself only halfway without consciously admitting it to yourself, and to avoid feeling guilty if and when you lose interest. An insatiable appetite for novelty and exaltation sometimes keeps you from forming stable relationships. Indeed, you are tormented by the struggle between your undeniable need for affection and an equally imperious desire for personal progress and emancipation. As a result of this inner turmoil, your romantic aspirations are usually sabotaged sooner or later by your conviction that your partner has become an obstacle to your individual progress. Because you think of love as a restraint, you may even eventually consciously refuse any emotional approach to love interests. As an ascetic, you will try to deflect the love function from its natural target and use the energy and bliss it generates for other purposes, the process psychologists call sublimation. However, you are also likely to meet “the one” who inspires you to initiate a change in your behavior.
Bobby Sherman was powerfully ruled by his determination and vital needs. His intellectual abilities came to the forefront when he communicated his ideal and plotted his action or strategy. He could be both logical and astute, and had gifts for theorizing but may sometimes lack perspective.
Bobby Sherman 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.
You have a lively and agile spirit, but you tend to apply your mental abilities in a somewhat haphazard and disorderly way. You are curious and open-minded, approaching various life experiences with an attitude free of either dogmatism or prejudice. Your extremely lively mind leads you to have an opinion on every subject. Although you enjoy manipulating expressions and concepts and amuses others and yourself with witty remarks, your conversations could collapse into argument and conflict. Because you are often too hasty to formulate and construct the arguments which would back up and inform your ideas, you are sometimes misunderstood. You are often blind to the rashness of your judgments and convinced they are well-founded and objective, which sometimes irritates the people around you. Actually, your overriding need to assert yourself as an individual sometimes defeats discussion and prevents you from listening to the other person fairly. But if you were to succeed in disciplining your mind somewhat, you would have innumerable opportunities to apply your communications skills to a great career. Moreover, you should be careful of your nerves, which are fairly high-strung. Any physical fitness activity would be beneficial; an Eastern discipline such as yoga or Tai-chi-chuan could teach you how to relax and improve control of your nervous and mental energies.
Bobby Sherman has a mind that is constantly hungry for knowledge. He has an exceptional ability to learn and can quickly accumulate encyclopedic knowledge in any subject he chooses. His intellectual curiosity can sometimes be a drawback, as he is easily distracted by a multitude of other subjects. However, with discipline and a conscious effort at organization, Bobby Sherman can be successful in any field, including teaching, historical scholarship, advertising, writing (journalistic or literary), travel, and more.
