Bryce Dallas Howard needs others in order to structure herself. She intuitively senses this need and seeks a balance between her individual ambitions and need to give to others and be loved and recognized in return, although it sometimes eludes her. Marriage and friendship could be realms to which she is especially devoted, but they may also prove to be a source of conflict and disillusion.
Bryce Dallas Howard has a paternal complex and, as a result, some trouble finding her identity. Perhaps her father or a father figure was absent physically or emotionally during her childhood, which deprived her of the patterns or models which are usually helpful in structuring a personality. Because she 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, she was forced to protect herself against negative influences and find her own system in order to grow and feel secure. Although this system was quite useful to her as a child, it has now settled in to such a degree that it interferes with her evolution. Psychological defense mechanisms and crutches which were once useful now encumber her mind or inhibit her developmental efforts. As a result, in certain situations, it is difficult for her to assert herself, and she tends to remain an awkward or passive observer. Because her authoritarian urges are mainly directed at herself rather than others, she sometimes feels guilty about her behavior. She judges herself severely, and sometimes punishes herself by setting difficult tasks for herself. Gradually, she should build up a strong inner discipline and acquire the strength to face the problems of existence in a detached and mature way.
Bryce Dallas Howard may be subject to mood swings, going from phases of frenzy combined with a feeling of omnipotence and exaltation to phases of apathy and inertia. During your “highs,” your behavior is vigorous and dynamic, but it is also likely to be somewhat excessive. These periods tend to be interspersed with “lows,” phases of sluggishness and inhibition, which compensate for your immense need to assert yourself as an individual. How can you find a way out of this vicious cycle which uses up so much of your energy? You would have to understand that the source of your attitudes and behavior is an unconscious desire for power. We suggest that you meditate upon power, skills, mastery, challenge, desire, and need, your brothers (or brother substitutes, such as friends, cousins, or classmates) – who are key figures – and your adversaries. This should enlighten you. Of course, once you have a clear awareness of your career ambitions and profound desires, you are sure to have plenty of energy to accomplish them.
Bryce Dallas Howard is usually cool and distant in demeanor, repressing her feelings and sensitivity and avoiding the sort of situation where she might be forced to express them. This inhibition is related to a feeling of not having been loved enough. In many cases, to the detriment of her love life, she is capable of plunging all her energy into her work. She seeks social recognition through her career achievements.
Bryce Dallas Howard's sensitivity and emotions are sometimes in conflict with her instincts. This inner discord makes her a fairly complicated relationship partner, and her behavior sometimes strikes others as mysterious or baffling. She is liable to switch from one attitude to the opposite. Sexuality is an important part of her life, and her relationships are most often motivated by her desires. Nevertheless, due to her unconscious inner battle, she does not often succeed in reconciling and fulfilling her emotional and sexual needs. Due to the strength of her instincts, passion may overwhelm her and drag her into situations she cannot always control, which intermingle erotic ecstasy and anguish, guilt, and aggressiveness.
Bryce Dallas Howard is sensitive and compassionate, readily sacrificing her own interests to help and assist others. She is romantic and idealistic, but sometimes lacks discernment in the choice of her partners. She is fairly confused and evasive and has trouble expressing her feelings clearly, but is capable of devoting herself entirely to the person she loves.
Bryce Dallas Howard's birth chart indicates an emotional function which is expressed in a direct and fairly impulsive way. She enjoys reaching out to other people and making discoveries. An eternal teenager with her gaze riveted on the future, she is imbued with an eminently subjective and personal idealism.
Bryce Dallas Howard's timidity causes her to maintain a withdrawn and unapproachable exterior. She may be uncomfortable with herself and have irrational anxieties or fears, which makes it difficult for her to prove her other qualities, like a sense of duty, perseverance, and good organizational skills. She accepts her circumstances as her fate and is liable to limit herself to regretful self-denial unless she throws herself into a career and becomes a shrewd businessperson. She is quite likely to marry someone who will dominate her but whose gentleness will help her find self-fulfillment.
Bryce Dallas Howard's love life is full of ambivalence. Although she is sentimental, she is likely to be fickle sometimes, and despite her deep sensual urges, she may sometimes be extremely idealistic and spiritual. The result is relative instability and confusion. She might suddenly allow herself to be enchanted by a dream person when she is in the midst of trying to control her sex drive and attain true spiritual fulfillment. Conversely, she may commit herself to an exceptional marriage based on mutual devotion and great high-mindedness.
You are a passionate and ardent 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.
