Catherine Sutherland has a complex personality. She is astir with contradictory impulses and desires, some of them imperious. Although her rational mind is highly developed and seems to be the source of motivation for her behavior, the most significant realm of her psychology is her subconscious. Therein, a conflict between understanding and feeling is raging, between the psychological functions of thought and sensation. Until this conflict subsides, she might feel a sensation of emptiness. She is troubled by and unable to explain this feeling, which leads her to adopt an attitude of doubt and skepticism. This conflict, and its various ramifications, are the main obstacle to her individuation. Her task consists of becoming the master of the energies of her subconscious, and developing her consciousness in terms of the hidden and invisible. Her evolution will occur through a series of metamorphoses and rebirths. However, at certain points in her life, despite her caution and clear thinking, she finds herself in situations she neither desired nor planned, as a result of explosions and eruptions of the elements fermenting in her psyche. She always survives the worst physical, emotional, or intellectual tests, however, fairly unscathed, because of her ability to be reborn and start afresh.
Catherine Sutherland has an independent and individualistic temperament, sometimes aggravated by outer discipline and authority. Her need to preserve her originality and freedom often inspires her to display eccentric and unconventional behavior, even if it shocks the people around her. She is also reluctant to be tied down unnecessarily, so she may exaggerate her detached “lone wolf” aspect. Actually, she is passionately fond of developing a strict and monastic inner discipline. Others generally appreciate her intellectual qualities, the originality of her opinions, and the subtlety and keenness of her insights. However, her taste for paradox and provocation may not be for everyone. She is attracted by exploration and discovery and enjoys modernistic or futuristic settings. Although she is more mind-oriented than sensual, she is quite honest when expressing her emotions, which often feel more platonic than passionate.
Catherine Sutherland thrives on relating to other people. She cannot live without love!
Catherine Sutherland tends to live in an imaginary world; the distant and abstract sometimes interests her more than what is right at hand and realistic.
Catherine Sutherland has a good balance between her need for movement and her tendency to be sedentary. She is just as likely to adapt to situations which require outbursts of initiative as to those which demand patience and perseverance.
Catherine Sutherland was born seven to ten days after the rising of the new moon, and is said to be a “first quarter” lunar type. This “soli-lunar” configuration means that her character is strong-willed and sometimes proud, always determined to buck convention and innovate. Monotony is unbearable to her, and she chafes under the yoke of routine. As a result, she often runs into trouble with authority figures.
When overwhelmed by her conscience, she rages about how destructive it is to long for the past, how ridiculous it is to be old-fashioned, and how obsolete the old values are.
Generally speaking, her monthly energy flow crests about seven to ten-and-a-half days after the full moon. She would be wise to schedule intensive work phases at that time, as well as ambitious and demanding projects. At that time, her initiatives will be most successful, especially if she is trying to create something new, original, and cutting-edge!
