Bryce Petty is fairly individualistic. Although he sometimes mingles with groups for their competitive atmosphere, he will rarely join in them wholeheartedly, preferring to work on his own projects independently. A lack of confidence in himself may sometimes create challenges in relationships. His lack of self-esteem may also sometimes inhibit the full expression of his generosity and love.
You have a paternal complex, which means that you have trouble finding your identity. Perhaps your father wasn't around physically or emotionally, which deprived you of the patterns and models that are usually helpful in structuring a personality. Because you lacked a sense of security that could be provided by a paternal presence, as well as the examples of behavior to follow in confronting the difficulties inherent in every life, you were forced to protect yourself against negative influences and find your own system in order to grow and feel secure. Although this system was quite helpful to you as a child, it has now settled in to such a degree that it interferes with your evolution. Psychological defense mechanisms and crutches which were once useful now encumber your mind or inhibit your developmental efforts. As a result, in certain 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 rather than others, you sometimes feel guilty about your behavior. You judge yourself severely, and sometimes punishes 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.
Bryce Petty's personality and behavior are liable to be disrupted by a contradiction between the masculine and feminine archetypes ruling his psyche. Because his sensitivity is in conflict with his determination, his attitude and performance may sometimes be moody, fluctuating, and uncertain. Usually, Bryce has the feeling he has to make superhuman efforts to succeed in assuaging his yearnings and fulfilling his ambitions. His unconscious, sensitive side often disapproves of his conscious endeavors and stealthily works to defeat them, causing crucial omissions, mistakes, and gaps which effectively sabotage his plans. In Bryce's relationships, the images he builds up and projects on the other are contradictory. As a result, any bond, even if it is pleasant and positive, might also annoy him. He could find it dissatisfying and irritating at the same time.
Bryce Petty has a great potential for creative, constructive accomplishments; however, it is sometimes difficult for him to gain access to this part of himself. He is confident in himself and life but may tend to be nonchalant. He sometimes needs a little stimulation to get himself rolling and take some initiative. His optimism and inner certainty do not always drive him to give his utmost efforts to achieve a goal. The communications skills he possesses are an advantage as well as a handicap. He makes use of his theatrical gifts, convincing eloquence, and ability to listen. The best careers for him would be teaching, communications, philosophy, the legal profession, theater, and public relations.
Bryce Petty is fairly strong-willed, and he is mindful of going about his purposes with maximum efficiency. When he relates to other people, he sometimes has trouble expressing his emotions, but he does have a lively sensitivity and is capable of lasting passion. As he grows older, he is quite likely to come into his own and acquire great intellectual and spiritual wisdom. His honesty, integrity, and sense of duty will win him recognition and appreciation. Passing time will be a very important factor in his destiny, and his greatest accomplishments will guarantee him stability and prosperity. Although he is not especially enterprising, he will move into a high career position as soon as he feels sure of his abilities.
Bryce Petty usually keeps a cool and distant demeanor, repressing his feelings and sensitivity. This inhibition is related to a feeling of not having been loved enough. In many cases, this hurts his love life. He's capable of plunging all his energy into his work, seeking social recognition through his career achievements.
Bryce Petty has a lively and curious intelligence, the very opposite of empty rhetoric and studiousness. He is agile and adaptable and can not only analyze difficult situations objectively but also demonstrate a profound comprehension when faced with a psychological problem.
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 liable to form. To ward off your feelings of dependency, you tend to become destructive. Based on denial, your reactions are sometimes fierce, impulsive, and excessive, erratic, or contradictory.
Due to your hypersensitivity and irrepressible imagination, you sometimes have trouble distinguishing dreams from reality. Although your bubbling imagination provides an abundant source of inspiration for creative or spiritual evolution, it tends to be less helpful and positive in matters that concern your self-assertion as responsible and self-sufficient. Although your psychic faculties drive you to fulfill yourself through artistic activities like painting, drawing, music, or poetry, it may be difficult for you to market your talents in terms of a career. In a relationship, you are extremely romantic and do not always see others the way they really are. Because of your tendency to idealize people, you may be disappointed when their true natures are eventually betrayed.
Bryce Petty has a romantic nature and is seeking a soulmate. The world of his emotions is warm and inviting, the expression of true kindness. Tenderness, grace, and mildness rule his sensitivity, which is aroused by contact with nature and thrills to the idea of a secure, stable home.
Bryce Petty's birth chart indicates that he has an emotional function that is usually expressed carefully and reasonably. Distrustful of his emotional urges and somewhat wary of his feelings, Bryce tries to rid himself of all partiality and try to get some perspective and distance before making an emotional commitment.
Bryce Petty is shy and unsure of himself, liable to be stuck on the sidelines of life despite his qualities, at least in the first part of his adult life. If he manages to overcome his inhibitions, he could have a brilliant career. His private life should emerge from its melancholy and relative frigidity, improving with time and giving rise to a deep and enduring commitment. A lively and intelligent person, perhaps younger than him, should be able to draw him out of his shell.
When it comes to romance, Bryce Petty is easily dazzled by social status and is attracted to strong and powerful people. Nevertheless, fulfilling this desire may mean that he finds himself subject to the whims of a partner with a strong personality, and he may feel ill at ease in a social or society life that is too intense. He will find sanctuary and stability in his home, family life, and, if he chooses to have them, children.
You are an extremely complex individual, full of contradictions. Because you sometimes feel vulnerable emotionally, 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.
Bryce Petty is somewhat plodding but realistic and pragmatic. Because he is chiefly preoccupied with the practical aspects of things, Bryce Petty is especially apt to develop more efficient production concepts. Although his good judgment and common sense provide him with an excellent ability to handle the tangible world (he is certainly clever, and can quickly assess the tangible value of things), his thought processes might be relatively impervious to abstract concepts and spiritual awakenings.
Bryce Petty expresses his thoughts and ideas in direct, spontaneous outbursts. He is fairly extroverted and eager to discover and understand the outer world. An idealist, Bryce looks forward to a bright future but is sometimes subjective and reckless.
Bryce Petty is a very likable person. He's kind, persuasive, and charming. However, when he has to compete or deal with direct conflict and hostility, he may be at a loss. Bryce has a gift for oratory, which could be put to use in a communications-related occupation or in the arts (especially stage or screen acting). Writing and dance might also be good fields for him.
Bryce Petty has a great deal of intuition but sometimes has problems organizing his thought processes 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.
