You are troubled by and unable to explain this feeling, which leads you to adopt an attitude of doubt and skepticism. This conflict, and its various ramifications, are the main obstacle to your individuation. Your task consists of becoming the master of the energies of your subconscious, and developing your consciousness in terms of the hidden and invisible. Your evolution will occur through a series of metamorphoses and rebirths. However, at certain points in your life, despite your caution and clear thinking, you find yourself in situations you neither desired nor planned, as a result of explosions and eruptions of the elements fermenting in your psyche. You always survive the worst physical, emotional, or intellectual tests, however, fairly unscathed, because of your ability to be reborn and start afresh. As a partner, you might struggle to make compromises. You may appear frosty and distant at times, and you have a taste for challenging, provocative remarks. With yourself, as well as with others, you are sometimes excessive and complicated. In a discussion, you will express strong, honest opinions. In crisis situations, you wish for your efforts to be noticed. You are obsessed with the problem of death. You tend to believe it holds the secret of life – that death can be overcome. Sometimes your anxiety about death is expressed as a search for answers – how can one learn to live with death, how can one detach oneself from the past and its flesh-curdlingly morbid realities… Decay, immobility, ultimate delivery – these images, which are all symbolically associated with death, sometimes haunt you.Intellectually, you have powerfully developed intellectual faculties which yield the maximum effectiveness for your behavior. Deductive, analytical, prospective, you are at once a researcher, a detective, and a scientist. You are fairly introverted, and your discrimination tends to direct you toward the spheres of inner life. You are astute at drawing rational parallels between phenomena of different origins. Your love life will be subject to desire and passion. But since you are more aroused by ideas and fantasies, you may experience lulls in intensity. When you yield to your penchant for emotional upheaval and your desire for coercion and pleasure, you may find yourself sailing into the teeth of a hurricane-force gale.
Due to the influence of Capricorn rising, Bryn Terfel has a personality which is relatively aloof and introspective. In fact, he is not inclined to submit to anyone's influence, and leads the independent life of the individualist. Sometimes skeptical (if not pessimistic) and resigned, he is still shrewd and objective in his insights and judgments. He has a fairly severe, “no-frills” vision of life, and only the pure, bare essence really matters to him. His personal stability tends to be founded on enduring values – philosophical or scientific facts in relation to spiritual values. Sometimes he seems detached and weary, or disillusioned, and he does not appreciate the social whirl. He does not readily express his feelings and emotions, but he feels a need to protect and restrain an inner sensitivity and emotionality. His sense of time, a true instinct, is very important. It rules and coordinates all of his activities.
Bryn Terfel tends to place his emotions in the forefront. He is sensitive and sometimes vulnerable to influences from the outer world.
Bryn Terfel is attentive to work and profit. He will probably be financially comfortable throughout his life.
At the time of your birth, your rising sign was located in Capricorn (the Goat), while the sun was passing through the sign of Scorpio (the Scorpion). A summary of the various clues mentioned above provide your personality profile. The following key words capture the essence of your character and indicate certain contradictions which may be sources of tension:
Pugnacity – Need for security – Charisma – Inhibition – Dignity – Application – Shrewdness – Methodical mind – Concentration – Forethought – Optimism – Loyalty – Common sense.
Ambitious and passionate, but secretive and reserved, you have a stormy and sometimes difficult character. Dominating, you might show a certain edginess, repressing the expression of your sensitivity and mocking that side of others. But you are short-tempered and vulnerable, and react with causticity when you feel your ego is threatened. Your keen and penetrating intelligence and your lucidity make you curious about the hidden aspects of things—the action behind the scenes. As a result, you may take pleasure in divulging people's emotional secrets. But on another level, you can expose the dysfunctional elements of something, resulting in a positive change. Your endurance and stubbornness give you the energy necessary for long-term projects. You alone can decide whether your goals will satisfy your own personal ambition, or a more vast and humanistic ideal.
Born on the night of the full moon, you are a “lunar type.” This configuration gives you a strong objective character, but also a more idealistic inclination. Because the moon is opposite the sun at the time of the full moon, your objective tendencies are balanced by a more passionate character. Because the forces that pull on you are different – one toward dreams, the other toward reality – you may experience some inner contradictions that are causing practical and social difficulties for you. At times you are too demanding of yourself or of others, comparing them to an ideal standard. At other times, you are too nonchalant and indulgent, lacking the seriousness necessary for achieving success. You vacillate between two poles, one elitist and the other more earthy. Generally speaking, your monthly energy flow is strongest at the time of the full moon. It would be wise to schedule intensive work phases at that time, as well as ambitious and demanding projects.
