Bryan Tanaka senses that he has instincts which may be dangerous, and he tries to restrain and control them. As a result, he may adopt a fairly ascetic lifestyle. His attitude, which denies the vital importance of the most archaic and darkest forces within him, is not entirely innocuous. If he hopes for a more harmonious development, he will do well to realize that instincts can be tamed; they do not react positively to being trampled.
You have a paternal complex, which means that you have trouble finding your identity. Possibly your father or a father figure was absent physically or emotionally during your childhood, which deprived you of the patterns or models which are usually helpful in structuring a personality. Because you might have lacked a particular sense of security which could be provided by a paternal presence, as well as the examples of behavior to follow in confronting the difficulties inherent in every life, you were forced to protect yourself against negative influences and find your own system in order to grow and feel secure. Although this system was quite useful to you as a child, it has now settled in to such a degree that it interferes with your evolution. Psychological defense mechanisms and crutches which were once useful now encumber your mind or inhibit your developmental efforts. As a result, in certain situations, it is difficult for you to assert yourself, and you tend to remain an awkward or passive observer. Because your authoritarian urges are mainly directed at yourself rather than others, you sometimes feel guilty about your behavior. You judge yourself severely, and sometimes punishes yourself by setting difficult tasks for yourself. Gradually, you should build up a strong inner discipline and acquire the strength to face the problems of existence in a detached and mature way.
Bryan Tanaka has 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, Bryan Tanaka 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.
Bryan Tanaka is optimistic and happy to be alive. He is a cheerful, expansive, pleasant associate to have. 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. He is quite 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.
Although Bryan Tanaka's demeanor is cool and distant, he is extremely sensitive. In some cases, his rather austere and rigid behavior and his refusal to yield too readily to sentimentality discourage others from being too demonstrative of their tenderness and affection. He has spells of melancholy in which he does not feel worthy of being loved and tend to forbid himself any emotional fulfillment whatsoever. An austere or somewhat traumatic childhood experience may be the source of this behavior. It is difficult for Bryan Tanaka's inner self to be detached from this past life, and he sometimes has trouble reconciling the image he has of himself as an adult with the one he acquired back then. The idea he has of himself as an individual is related to the image his parents projected onto him as a child. Nevertheless, the past is history, and he is now an adult. Through self-work, he can rid himself of these phantoms. He has the ability to overcome his mistakes, as well as great endurance and will power to achieve his goals. Nevertheless, he must not repress his sensitivity in order to succeed.
Bryan Tanaka has a nagging feeling of insecurity which affects his psychology and dampens his natural enthusiasm. His need to take action and assert himself is sometimes disturbed by this gnawing fear.
Because you discovered your individuality early in life, you quickly developed an original and independent identity. Your first taste of liberty may have led you to challenge the education and values you received from family and class tradition, and you were able to forge a strong, original personality and philosophy. Your relationships are usually free of conflict, because you are able to reconcile your need for independence with your desire for affection. However, your partners should be open and lively people, able to keep pace with you in your rapid evolution. You have an inspired and extremely lively wit and a brisk interest in the future, technological progress, and new lifestyles. You would be especially successful in communications-related careers like journalism, film, TV, radio, and advertising. Although you are an individualist, you have a powerful desire to contribute to the evolution of society and better its development.
Bryan Tanaka had trouble distinguishing dreams from reality. Although his bubbling imagination provided an abundant source of inspiration for creative or spiritual evolution, it tended to be less helpful and positive in matters that concerned his self-assertion as responsible and self-sufficient. In a relationship, Bryan Tanaka was extremely romantic and did not always see others the way they really were.
Bryan Tanaka has a sensual and affectionate nature which is sensitive to physical attraction. This type of sensitivity, combined with his productive urges, may be expressed in an artistic form. As for his feelings, they are usually slow to take root. But once he is conquered by love, he forms a deep and lasting bond. Although he is loyal, he may also display a tendency to be somewhat possessive.
Bryan Tanaka's birth chart indicates an emotional function which is usually expressed carefully and reasonably. Distrustful of his emotional urges and somewhat wary of his feelings, Bryan tries to rid himself of all partiality and try to get some perspective and distance before making an emotional commitment.
Bryan Tanaka is loyal and righteous. He often thinks and behaves quite freely. He has an imperious need to express himself, to be on the move, to externalize his energy. Because he is fiery and instinctive, he may rush into an inappropriate match. If so, his need for independence and freedom would promptly loosen the bond that was turning into a leash. However, if he takes the time to make a wise decision, he might find himself open to a long-term commitment. The only possible spouse for him is someone who shares his taste for new horizons and respects his need for freedom.
Bryan Tanaka enjoyed the comfort of the bed. He appreciated the solidity and security it provided. He was attached to his “belongings,” which to him meant his lover, home, and, if he chose to have them, children. He was somewhat awkward and shy with some, but he was dazzled by physical beauty once he had chosen his life partner. He was extremely loyal to them.
You have a romantic imagination, soaring with idealism, dreams, and poetry. You are emotive and hypersensitive, making you especially vulnerable emotionally, since you are sometimes overwhelmed by your feelings and affects. Although you seek an ideal soulmate, a partner with whom you could maintain blissful, smooth relations, you are sometimes met with disillusionment. Because your rather excessive sensitivity and your need to merge with the other are deep and powerful enough, they can submerge your judgment and discernment, so you sometimes form extremely intense bonds too quickly with individuals who are not appropriate partners in many ways. When you meet someone, you fall under the enchantment of your dream of ideal love and cannot keep yourself from delighting in a reverie of future romance, placing the other on a pedestal. Early on in the relationship, you yield to another of your characteristic urges and lose yourself in the individual who is so dear to you, melding with them, only to awaken one morning and find yourself as if in the arms of a stranger, greatly astounded and disappointed. Actually, your psyche is constructed in such a way as to make your sensitivity a function of the environment, in many cases; it follows the flow of momentary emotions and impressions. Before you take on any major commitments, you should make a conscious effort to evaluate the relationship realistically, and see whether the person really reciprocates your intense love, for you may merely be in love with the mirage of an ideal partner. Your tendency to believe in your illusions may mark you as an easy prey for people with bad intentions. It would be a good idea for you to find a different object for your affections, or a form of sublimation, because you tend to be so disappointed by your great emotional investments. The delicacy and subtlety of your imagination procure artistic refinement for you, and you love the arts, music, and literature, which could all be good sources of emotional involvement and fulfillment. Because your sensitivity also makes it easy for you to empathize with the psychological or social difficulties your peers are struggling with, you might also find it rewarding to commit yourself to social work.
Bryan Tanaka is a complex individual, full of contradictions. Because he sometimes feels vulnerable emotionally, Bryan tries to control not only his own feelings and urges, but may also strive to manipulate those of his partners. He aspires to a profound spiritual unity, but at the same time, the idea of abandoning oneself and yielding to the other terrifies him. This anguish may be a source of rather extreme behavior patterns and a somewhat self-focused attitude which could damage the relationship. Because Bryan is guarded and somewhat secretive, he tends to be suspicious and is especially uneasy about spontaneous intimacy, although he is fascinated by sexuality. Within the privacy of the couple, Bryan will not express his feelings unless he 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 Bryan's emotional and sexual functioning. As a result, he is likely to be attracted by stormy and complicated relationships.
Bryan Tanaka is realistic and pragmatic. Because he is chiefly preoccupied with the practical aspects of things, he is especially apt to develop more efficient production concepts. Although his good judgment and common sense provide him with an excellent ability to handle the tangible world, his thought processes might be relatively impervious to abstract concepts and spiritual awakenings.
Bryan Tanaka 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.
Bryan Tanaka has a lively and agile spirit. He is curious and open-minded, approaching various life experiences without either dogmatism or prejudice. As a result, he tends to have an opinion on every subject, but he does not always have the patience or perspective necessary to examine a subject and gain in-depth knowledge of it. He enjoys manipulating expressions and concepts and amuses himself with witty remarks, satire, and controversy. If Bryan learned to control his flow of words better and elaborate his thoughts more, he might make a talented communicator. Because he is often too hasty to formulate and construct the arguments which would back up and inform his ideas, he is sometimes misunderstood. He is often blind to the rashness of his judgments and convinced they are well-founded and objective, which sometimes irritates the people around him. If Bryan were to succeed in disciplining his mind somewhat, he would have innumerable opportunities to apply his communications skills to a great career. However, he would do well to be careful of his nerves.
In the formative years of childhood and adolescence, you may have had difficulty integrating new ideas and concepts or giving your thought structure and coherence. You may have a distaste for study, which might require a great deal of effort for you. You may harbor feelings of insecurity that are so acute that they may undermine your will and therefore your ability to compete. However, if you overcame these emotions, you would see that you have plenty of marketable skills and that many satisfactory solutions to your feelings of ineptitude and inadequacy are within your reach. Because this psychological complex may be related to childhood or adolescent opposition to parental or academic authority, you may not readily accept people who represent law enforcement agencies or power as an adult. You may display some hostility or vindictiveness toward them as a matter of principle. You should sometimes be careful of what you say.
