You have a complex personality. You are stirred with contradictory impulses and desires, some of them imperious. Although your rational mind is highly developed and seems to be the source of motivation for your behavior, the most significant realm of your psychology is your subconscious. Therein, a conflict between understanding and feeling is raging, between the psychological functions of thought and sensation (C.G. Jung's terms). Until this conflict subsides, you might feel a sensation of emptiness. 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

Born on the day before the new moon, you are said to be of the “balsamic moon” type. This soli-lunar configuration gives you a spiritualistic character closely attached to generous humanitarian ideals. You are sometimes sorely tried to limit yourself to the narrow scope of individual ambition. Indeed, you aim for a humanitarian ideal which would include the outcasts and the unfortunate. You fervently hope the meek will inherit the earth. To bring about this ideal, you are likely to seize every resource placed at your disposal: physical effort, money (if you have it), speech, your writings, and your poetic or artistic talents. However, you should be wary of your unconscious guilt feelings. Actually, there is no reason for you to devote yourself to your mission entirely; a simple daily effort should suffice to express your philosophy and free your conscience. Usually, the three days preceding the new moon will be time in the monthly lunar cycle most favorable to your activities and your general energy level.
