Bryan W. Simon feels 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 were born into a family of strong individuals, each of whom provided you with the model or pattern you lacked in your own childhood. Although your father was present physically, he may have been emotionally absent, which left you feeling insecure and unprotected. You were forced to confront the difficulties inherent in every life on your own, and this forced you to develop a system to help you grow and feel secure. Although this system was helpful during your childhood, it has now settled into a groove which limits your ability to grow and develop. As a result, in some 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, you sometimes feel guilty about your behavior. You judge yourself harshly, and sometimes punish 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.
At the moment of your birth, the two celestial “lights” (the sun and the moon) were symmetrically aligned. This is a portent of harmony between the masculine and feminine archetypes which is extremely beneficial. It is the source of balance and understanding between the two main psychological realms which may be said to compose the personality. You thus enjoy 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 is 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.
Bryan W. Simon is a free thinker and individualist who is convinced that his most precious basic values are freedom and independence. He has thrown off what he perceas
You are very sensitive and receptive, and you tend to live in osmosis with your surroundings. Your individuality almost seems to be diluted in a flood of sensations and impressions which are continually washing over you, and you sometimes find it difficult to communicate your feelings to other people. This tide of emotion is a source of inspiration and intuition, but your fluid inner structure and organization sometimes make it difficult for you to grasp the essence of your dreams and share them with other people. You are not at all combative, and this tends to hinder your efforts to fit into society and assert yourself productively. You are likely to prefer fantasy to reality, but your refusal to abandon your unattainable dreams is a psychological trap you have fallen into without realizing it. You must understand that by running away from your obligations and commitments, you only increase the feelings of guilt which made reality so distasteful in the first place. Once you free yourself from this pernicious process, you have a great deal of potential for fulfilling yourself in the outer world, either by devoting yourself to some sort of social work or by cultivating your considerable artistic talents.

Bryan W. Simon maintains strong ties with his past, and it often seems difficult for him to open his heart to new people.

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 a lively and inspired 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.
In a relationship, Bryan W. Simon often finds it difficult to distinguish dreams from reality. Although his bubbling imagination provides an abundant source of inspiration for creative or spiritual evolution, it often lacks the accuracy and detail necessary to be helpful and positive in matters concerning his self-assertion as responsible and self-sufficient. Although he is very romantic, Bryan W. Simon often sees others in a less than accurate light.

Bryan W. Simon's sexuality is an important part of his life, and his relationships are most often motivated by his desires. Nevertheless, due to his unconscious inner battle, he does not often succeed in reconciling and fulfilling his emotional and sexual needs.

Bryan W. Simon is prone to errors in judgment, often unable to distinguish between true and false, between the love of prestige and his feelings of compassion and pity. He often sacrifices his own ambitions to contribute to a partner's glory without receiving much in return, or he may smother them under the weight of his own aspirations. He would do well to gain more insight into himself before making a commitment.
Bryan W. Simon is fairly indecisive about his emotions. Although he has engaged in a variety of experiments in order to know himself and his preferences better, he might still find himself unable to make a commitment. He tends to be somewhat happy-go-lucky, yielding to whatever opportunity circumstances present, and may maintain several relationships simultaneously. It may not necessarily be easy for him to establish a lasting commitment, but it is not impossible.
You have the ardent, importunate nature of a fervent lover. Indeed, affairs of the heart are one of your main purposes in life. Your personal charm and magnetism are compellingly seductive; unfortunately, your attempts at conquest do not always lead to the fulfillment and satisfaction of your desires. Due to your impulsiveness and impatience to initiate new encounters, your approach to those you are attracted to may sometimes lack tact and delicacy. As a result of the foregoing, it may be somewhat difficult for you to maintain stable and harmonious relationships. Indeed, your emotional behavior is subject to a conflict between your quest for love and your need to satisfy your lust. Your outpourings of affection and your need to be loved in return sometimes create complicated situations in which lust may be confused with love, or love may exist without lust, and you may feel unrequited or unfulfilled. This inner contradiction is a sign of your tendency to derive pleasure from suffering – either your own or that of your partner. The relationship thus becomes the setting for a sort of power struggle, weakening it as a source of psychological equilibrium. Nevertheless, you could sublimate this difficulty through artistic expression.
You are hypersensitive and tend to relive the anxieties, apprehensions, and romantic absolutes of your first love relationships, which occurred around the ages of 13-14 years or 20-21 years. You are exquisitely sensitive, but almost completely barricaded behind a layer of aloofness. You will not settle for anything less than eternal commitment, total harmony, and absolute loyalty. You are sometimes presumed to be cold, even by those close to her. You usually hide your emotional reactions or do not even allow them to reach the level of your consciousness, in an effort to protect your sensitivity, which you see as your weak point. You are fairly vulnerable, even in the intimacy of a stable and established relationship. Usually, you will disguise your strong feelings as a kind of possessiveness or even jealousy. Certain misfortunes may arouse a negative emotional state inside you, and you feel unworthy of the love which is lavished on you. This psychological prohibition which rules over all of your desires and affects should loosen with the passage of time; likewise, your fear of approaching the other will diminish. As a result, the second part of your romantic life will be more rewarding. In any case, if you want to experience a harmonious love relationship and gratify yourself emotionally, the defense mechanisms you have elaborated to make yourself inaccessible to others will have to be dismantled. Any profound relationship will also require that you learn how to forget yourself occasionally in the other.
Bryan W. Simon has an emotional ideal which is full of subtlety and tenderness. He tends to be overwhelmed by his imagination and may not be selective enough when choosing a partner. His romantic and trusting nature may make him vulnerable. Although he strives to establish peaceful, uncomplicated relations, he sometimes experiences painful disappointments. His artistic delicacy and refinement provide him with a sincere love of the arts, music, and literature. He is likely to be a gifted poet.
You are an incredibly complex individual, full of contradictions. Sometimes you feel vulnerable emotionally, so you try to control not only your own feelings and urges, but may also strive to manipulate those of your partners. You aspire to a profound and enduring spiritual unity, but at the same time, the idea of abandoning yourself and yielding to the other terrifies you. This anguish may be a source of rather extreme behavior patterns and a somewhat self-focused attitude which could damage the relationship. Because you are guarded and somewhat secretive, you tend to be suspicious and are especially uneasy about spontaneous intimacy, although you are fascinated by sexuality. Within the privacy of the couple, you will not express your feelings unless you are 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 your emotional and sexual functioning. As a result, you are likely to be attracted by stormy and complicated relationships.
Bryan W. Simon ruled powerfully 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.
