Bryce Love 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, Bryce is aware of the need for a solid and stable foundation as a prerequisite to any effective action.
Bryce Love is energetic and vigorous. His need to assert his individuality is actually motivated by an unconscious desire for power. His attitudes and actions are actually motivated by an immense need to power. His lively, alert, and determined behavior is actually the result of an excess of energy. He has a short temper and must learn to control his impulsiveness which might expose him to a great deal of unnecessary conflict.
You were born into a family of high achievers. Your parents were both highly successful professionals, and you were raised in an atmosphere of hard work and high expectations. You have developed a strong sense of self-reliance, and you are often uncompromising in your dealings with others. You often feel as though you are fighting an inner battle with your father or a father figure. The psychological models you received from your father or a father figure as a result of your interaction and your own interaction with authority may not have played a major role in shaping your relationships with the outer world and society. You may thus have been forced to compensate for this with individual determination. As a result, although you are skillful, meticulous, conscientious, and efficient, a lack of self-confidence and personal assurance sometimes makes you timid and hesitant. You sometimes feel as though you are only masquerading as a respectable, sober adult. You tend to be far too critical of yourself and rarely feel satisfied that you are living up to your ideal. These unnecessary guilt feelings may lead you to turn down the prominent career positions for which you are fully qualified. You are aware that early success is often short-lived and fragile and that time rewards those who know how to be patient and persistent, like you.
Bryce Love prefers to follow a plan devised according to a set of logical or moral reasons. His behavior reflects this tendency. He is a relatively strict conformist who adopts models based on logical or moral considerations. He does not easily express his personal feelings or emotions, and may come across as a rigid person. However, his conscientiousness and application make him thrive in a work environment, and he is tolerant of social engagements and activities. His natural taste for clarity, detail, and technique would make him successful as a scientific researcher or high-tech designer.
Bryce Love is sensitive and imaginative, and sometimes has trouble distinguishing dreams from reality. Although his bubbling imagination provides an abundant source of inspiration for creative or spiritual evolution, he tends to be less helpful and positive in matters that concern his self-assertion as responsible and self-sufficient in a relationship. In a relationship, Bryce is extremely romantic and does not always see others the way they really are.
Bryce Love is a complicated relationship partner because of his sensitivity and emotions. This inner discord makes him a fairly complicated person, and his behavior sometimes strikes others as mysterious or baffling. He is liable to switch from one attitude to the opposite. 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, Bryce Love does not often succeed in reconciling and fulfilling his emotional and sexual needs. Passion may overwhelm him and drag him into situations he cannot always control, which intermingle erotic ecstasy and anguish, guilt, and aggressiveness.
Bryce Love has fairly lofty amorous aspirations. The soulmate he imagines for himself is brilliant and dazzling with an array of talents and beauty. However, the gap between his splendid ideal and reality is sometimes wide. He should be careful not to confuse his romantic ideal with reality and become aware that his tendency to project may be a way of fleeing from himself.
Bryce Love's birth chart indicates that he is usually expressive and emotional. He is distrustful of his emotional impulses and is wary of his feelings. He tries to rid himself of all partiality and get some perspective and distance before making an emotional commitment.
Bryce Love is inhibited as an adolescent and still unsure of how to express his feelings. He is sensitive and discreet, the epitome of devotion and self-denial. He tends to be withdrawn, but he will energetically perform any chore for those he loves. A precious helpmate, he will adapt and devote himself body and soul to the one he chooses while remaining in the background.
Bryce Love is a very attractive and brilliant person. He is skilled in the art of relationships and attracts both social success and admirers. His need to be loved and admired may cause him to fall for flattery from a mediocre potential partner. He will only find happiness with a person who shares his tastes and who is willing to support him in his quest for social fulfillment.
Bryce Love has the fiery, importunate nature of a fervent lover. Indeed, affairs of the heart are one of his main purposes in life. His personal charm and magnetism give him nearly irresistible powers of seduction, and nearly every one of his well-aimed attempts at conquest leads to the fulfillment and satisfaction of his desires. Due to his impulsiveness and impatience to initiate new encounters, his approach to potential partners may sometimes lack delicacy.
You are an ardent and amorous 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.
Bryce Love is powerfully ruled by his determination and vital needs. His intellectual abilities come to the forefront when his purpose is to communicate his ideal and plot his action or strategy. He can be both logical and astute, and have gifts for theorizing but may sometimes lack perspective.
Bryce Love 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.
Bryce Love has a great deal of intuition, but sometimes has problems organizing his thoughts and making an intellectual commitment. The concepts of boundary and structure are inimical to his mind, which is open and all-encompassing, premonitory, and web-like. His thoughts may be verbally indeterminate, vague, and ill defined. He tends to understand or sense things globally, without always noticing their component parts. Usually, he can't see the trees for the forest. In daily life, although his perceptions are lively and subtle, he may display a kind of absent-mindedness out of a fear of annoying people with his shrewdness or of fighting to assert himself. His imagination sometimes escapes from the confines of logic, cringing from a confrontation with reality. This unwillingness to face the real world may cause relationship or career challenges.
