Of a fairly introspective nature, Bryant McKinnie is attentive to her special inner qualities which enable her to perceive the very essence of the people she meets, the situations she encounters, and the objects she sees. She has the ability to understand through her intuition. This faculty is based upon an openness to the other, and thus a certain duality: a budding extroversion, and the predominance of the object over the subject (herself) in her consciousness. As a result, she has a strong sense of the group and would sacrifice her own ego rather than commit something that is a sin in her eyes, neglecting her social obligations or failing to fulfill her duties to the people she is close to. She can sometimes be perceived by others as unreliable or untrustworthy, due to a sort of opportunism or disloyalty. However, these are superficial characteristics. The real reason for her behavior is psychological and resides in the fact that she is ready to do anything to maintain the harmony of the group (or simply satisfy the expectations of the other). However, she sometimes lacks self-assertion, and this makes her contradictory and unreliable when she faces certain superficial decisions. Moreover, she has a chameleon-like ability to blend in with situations and prevailing moods. She is thus quite a success in social settings, and she thrives on friendships, partnerships, networks, and corporate liaisons. Her mind is amazingly flexible, arranging harmonious and productive encounters between people and ideas. All of her emotional health is invested in a desire to participate, to mingle, to exchange. Although she is consciously aware of an ardent desire to be sociable, unconsciously she blames herself for failing to achieve her ideal goal, which always seems to elude her. This is why she sometimes has phases of discouragement, followed by renewed zeal in her work efforts or group participation. Because she is always seeking the perfect group, the ideal form of cooperation, she sometimes despair of ever attaining it. She has a natural tendency to find common ground for people, to reconcile differing opinions and viewpoints, and she is partial to any arrangement which promotes cooperation or fellowship. Because she is not aggressive by nature, she knows how to make peace; she is a skillful diplomat and go-between. As a corollary to her opening to society, she is closely related to her environment. The society in which she moves contributes in large part to the formation of her character and attitude. Through social contacts and friendships, she has elaborated a personal code of
Due to the influence of Sagittarius (the Centaur-Archer) rising, Bryant McKinnie has a dual, ambivalent nature, vagrant and capricious. It is natural for him to be simultaneously conventional and rebellious. He can happily submit to society and convention for a time, only to emerge committed to rugged individualism, or vice-versa. His inner attachment to an ideal of liberty and emancipation does not prevent him from adopting a sociable, pleasant attitude at social events. This dichotomy in his personality grants him such useful social skills as adaptability and poise, but inside, he faces a quest for his true identity and consciousness. His primary psychological task is to maintain the harmony reigning between the two entities dwelling within him. He must not limit himself to being either one or the other. He will achieve true psychic and existential stability by personifying a blend of these two behavioral tendencies. When he is comfortable with his individuality, he can radiate optimism and energy; flexible and elastic, he will delight in any change or unpredictability, without losing sight of his long-term purposes. Eminently social, he will express his true nature by becoming deeply involved with groups and taking on duties and responsibilities as a member. He will enjoy his ability to infuse them with his idealistic enthusiasm and visions for the future. His special gifts for dealing with energy make him apt to occupy a position of great social responsibility.

Born in the three days after the rising of the new moon, Bryant McKinnie is said to be a “new moon” lunar type. This “soli-lunar” configuration gives him a subjective character, somewhat impulsive and sometimes emotive. Generally, he does not see the world in objective terms; instead, he bases his attitude on the feelings various situations arouse inside him. Likewise, in human relationships, he tends to project his imaginary reality onto others instead of seeing them for what they are. As a result, his judgements and reasoning are sometimes deprived of perspective. He may want to make an effort to refrain from overinterpreting other people's actions, because, being the product of his imagination in most cases, his interpretations are mistaken. If he applies himself to listening more openly, people may reveal their deeper motivations. He'll be happier and more effective as a result.
