Bryant Myers is determined to obtain a superlative grip on his emotional urges; he practices holding back his impulses and controlling them. Although it is not an easy apprenticeship, he wants to be able to bear strain with patience, endurance, and stamina. More than anyone else, he is aware of the need for a solid and stable foundation as a prerequisite to any effective action.
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.
You are sober and reserved and may even strike people as rigid and austere at times. Perhaps you were raised in an atmosphere of rigor and sobriety as a child, and, as a result, became an adult a little too fast. In any case, you quickly acquired a spirit of self-sufficiency and a strong sense of your personal dignity and worth. At work, you are skillful, meticulous, conscientious, and efficient, but your lack of self confidence and personal assurance hinder your decision-making skills. Although you would deserve a prominent executive position, you might refuse any that are offered due to your fear of being in the limelight. You are aware that early success is often short-lived and fragile and that time rewards those who are patient, which, in your case, is true. The psychological mechanisms described above are probably the result of a paternal complex. In childhood, your identity may have been too strongly attached to that of your father or a father figure, for one of the following reasons:- the bond with your father was too close,- your father was absent and/or idealized,- your father was too strict, etc.In any case, this psychological particularity can act either as a handicap or as an opportunity for the individual to overcome yourself. It will result in two groups of opposite but complementary reactions which will rule your behavior all your life:- hypersensitivity or insensitivity- intense life wish or discomfort with life- obsession or renunciation- skepticism or fanaticism- asceticism or lust- jealousy or indifference- effort or lazinessThe so-called “Saturnian” phases (at age 7, 14, 21, 28 or 29, and 35 years) will be transitional periods that give you an opportunity to resolve this complex in real life.
Bryant Myers generally tends to be motivated by activities which apply to social needs. He tends to give the best of himself in difficult situations which require crucial choices. His ability to concentrate and his gift for solving problems by deductive reasoning are his chief resources in crisis situations or at turning points in his life.
Bryant Myers is an eloquent speaker and compulsive charmer, with a powerful personal magnetism which may sometimes make him seem arrogant or smug. He cares a great deal about his reputation and will try hard to be admired and appreciated by the people around him. Fond of social events and parties, he likes to be the host, to entertain and charm a captive audience of guests. Indeed, he has special dramatic and artistic talents of the caliber necessary for success in film, theater, fashion, or art in general. He enjoys displaying his generosity, but he also displays a short temper at times; he is easily offended. His partner will have to be a brilliant person, strong and sure of themselves, devoted to him and capable of enhancing his reputation.
You are emotional and tend to react suddenly and excessively as soon as your sensitivity is touched. Although you feel that your independence, freedom, and self-sufficiency are fundamental values, you are sometimes frustrated by your need to rely on your family or friends. Moreover, you do not always grant the freedom of other people the same respect as your own. Likewise, you are sometimes angered by expressions of maternal tenderness, as if you feared that it would doom you to eternal dependency. Your ambivalent behavior, full of jagged edges, may be traced back to the relationship you had with your mother or a mother figure. Although you were dependent on them, they may have rejected you. Now this attitude is extended to any situation in which your sensitivity comes into play and emotional bonds are likely to form. To ward off your feelings of dependency, you sometimes tend to become destructive. Based on denial, your reactions might be fierce, impulsive, excessive, erratic, or contradictory.
Bryant Myers was having a difficult time 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, he was extremely romantic and did not always see others the way they really were.
Bryant Myers does not always readily reveal himself, and he tends to protect his sensitivity. He has a penchant for intense emotions, sexuality being a prominent element in his life, and his relationships, which are usually passionate, are motivated by his desires. He likes to understand the hidden side of people, their secret or unconfessed motivations. He would thus find a career which placed him in contact with troubled people especially rewarding.
Bryant Myers is looking for the ideal love and tends to idealize his friends and lovers. A bizarre character, he may prefer to dream of his soulmate instead of making love to one; he is more in love with the idea of love than anything else. His idealism may hide a fear of truly committing himself to a relationship; he tries to intellectualize everything. In time, two options will seem clear to him: an amorous friendship based on shared ideas and intellectual exchange, or an open relationship, free of all constraints except mutual respect.
Bryant Myers was born with an emotional function that is expressed in a direct and fairly impulsive way. He enjoys reaching out to other people and making discoveries. An eternal teenager with his gaze riveted on the future, he is imbued with an eminently subjective and personal idealism.
Bryant Myers is understanding and knows how to get what he wants without asking. His artistic nature requires refined and elegant surroundings. Indeed, he enjoys the social whirl and is a talented host. In a relationship, he requires perfect harmony of feeling. Only a scrumptious person who is attentive, admiring, and perfectly understanding will be able to fulfill him.
Bryant Myers is hesitant and sometimes unstable when it comes to relationships and has a somewhat tumultuous love life. As a partner, he reaches out and then pulls back, giving and then refusing. Actually, he is far more in love with his liberty and his dreams of love than with reality. He sometimes yields to strange attractions which appear incomprehensible to him once he has recovered his senses. Only a friendly lover, who can be a loyal and understanding companion, can provide him with complete emotional stability.
Bryant Myers is an intuitive thinker. He does not reason things out through a long, articulate, logical discourse; instead, he seizes the visions or insights that spontaneously flash into his consciousness. He thus has a form of immediate knowledge of various phenomena which is based neither on reasoning nor on any elaborate thought process or method. As a result, if he is an extrovert, he will possess an inventive, innovative spirit gifted for improvisation. If he is an introvert, his mind will be an abundant source of personal inner truths.
Bryant Myers does not express his thoughts and ideas smoothly or easily. He tends to be subjective, seeking to know himself better through a process of introversion.
Bryant Myers has an intellectual faculty and wit that are sometimes slowed down because they are turned inward. Because he tends to be oriented toward himself, he rarely tries to communicate with others for the simple pleasure of doing so. Indeed, he sometimes feels misunderstood. Moreover, it seems difficult for him to express the complexity of his inner perceptions.
Bryant Myers has a lively and agile spirit. He is curious and open-minded, approaching various life experiences without either dogmatism or prejudice. As a result of the liveliness of his mind, 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 he 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 he 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.
