Chad Butler is searching for stability; he wants to find a firm, unchanging structure for his life. But his efforts to achieve this ideal are often vain, because unconsciously, he is also inhabited by the opposite desire. Every time he reaches what he believes to be a good balance, he realizes he wants something entirely different. He would do well to become aware that the concepts of stability and balance are difficult to apply to life. By definition, life is movement, change, and perpetual instability.
Born under a new moon (when the moon and sun were in the same part of the sky), Chad Butler enjoys a positive balance between the conscious and unconscious aspects of his psyche. His determination and sensitivity balance one another and work together harmoniously. His inner life contributes to the relationships with other people which make up his outer life. His parents or teachers probably gave him the type of education which was adapted to his personality. As a result, his personality is basically balanced, which, of course, does not mean that his life is devoid of little asperities. Generally, the goals he sets for himself correspond to his skills. Without giving the matter much thought, he tends to follow prevailing trends and behave in a conventional enough way. He is subjective and sees the world according to his own perceptions instead of the way it really is.
You were raised in an austere and sober environment. As a result, you have developed a strong sense of self-sufficiency and a tendency to be uncompromising. You also have a touchy sense of your personal dignity and worth, and are often aware of the psychological models you received from your father or a father figure. However, your relationships with the outer world and society are largely shaped by your own determination. Despite being skillful, meticulous, conscientious, and efficient, you sometimes feel timid and hesitant, and you may have difficulty feeling satisfied with your accomplishments. These unnecessary guilt feelings may lead you to turn down prominent career positions. You are aware that success is often short-lived and fragile, and that patience and persistence are key to success.
Chad Butler has a profound and fertile inner life and a prolific imagination, but his energy resources are not always sufficient to follow through on and accomplish his multitude of dreams. He tends to live in osmosis with his environment, and effort and action take a heavy toll on him. Usually, he understands phenomena and events intuitively, without really making any effort; so he is not in the habit of disciplining or shaping his thought processes. Like his thoughts, his personality is rather amorphous and disorganized. As a result of this lack of structure, he may have some trouble asserting his individuality and making some personal contribution to society through his career. His tendency to shut out reality and dream impossible dreams, like his refusal of responsibility and duty, may be a source of some difficulty for him.
You have an inalienable awareness of the void and the vanity of existence. You are sometimes disoriented and deconstructed by an unknowable, unconscious force and tend to ignore or disparage the superficial pleasures and pains of daily life, preferring to dive into the depths of human experience as deeply as your intellectual, emotional, and spiritual capacities permit. Grappling with your “fundamental nature,” with the deepest and most primitive part of yourself, you are sometimes aghast at the discovery of the sheer power of your instincts and feels an imperious need to cope with them. This special consciousness you have been endowed with is somewhat beyond the bounds of conventional schools of human understanding and thought and may be a source of identity problems for you at the outset. It is not easy for you to recognize yourself in any social or narcissistic models, or identify with any existing roles or attitudes, so you sometimes find yourself forced to assert and express your own identity in a way which may strike your contemporaries as strangely intense if not eccentric.
Lively and expressive, Chad Butler has a personality which is sometimes agitated but straightforward. Unconscious feelings of insecurity compel him to act and sometimes to seek the admiration of others. As a result, he is unable to bear idleness and routine, and he is in search of perpetual excitement. His reactions to others are highly individual and depend on the mood he is in at any given moment. A person of decision, a businessperson or an athlete, Chad Butler often personifies boldness and impetuosity. His love life is liable to be fiery, as it obeys the imperatives of his desire for freedom and independence, and his need for change.
Chad Butler found it difficult to distinguish dreams from reality. Although his imagination could be an abundant source of inspiration for creative or spiritual evolution, it tended to be less helpful and positive when it came to matters of earning a decent living in the real world.

Chad Butler is a complicated person. His sensitivity and emotions are sometimes in conflict with his instincts, which makes him a fairly complicated relationship partner. His behavior sometimes strikes others as mysterious or baffling. 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, he does not often succeed in reconciling and fulfilling his emotional and sexual needs. Due to the strength of his instincts, passion may overwhelm him and drag him into situations he cannot always control, which intermingle erotic ecstasy and anguish, guilt, and aggressiveness.
Chad Butler is looking for the ideal love and tends to idealize his friends and lovers. A bizarre character, Chad may prefer to dream of his soulmate instead of making love to one; he is more in love with the idea of love than anything else.

Because he is fiery and instinctive, he may rush into an inappropriate match. If so, his need for independence and freedom would promptly loosen the bond that was turning into a leash. However, if he takes the time to make a wise decision, he might find himself open to a long-term commitment. The only possible spouse for him is someone who shares his taste for new horizons and respects his need for freedom.
For Chad Butler, idealism, friendship, and intellectual discussion sometimes seem to be more pleasurable than the affairs of the heart.

Nevertheless, he could be very happy with a person of high-minded aspirations, who would be a friend as well as a lover.
Chad Butler has the fiery, importunate nature of a fervent lover. Indeed, affairs of the heart are one of his main purposes in life.

Due to his impulsiveness and impatience to initiate new encounters, his approach to potential partners may sometimes lack delicacy.
Chad Butler has a rather irrational mind and a voracious intellect, which is usually subject to the rule of his prolific imagination. Although he is likely to have flashes of intuition which may prove to be correct, his thought processes are sometimes messy and confused. His mind, which is oriented in many different directions at the same time, is ruled by his emotions and feelings. In tune with psychic and parapsychic phenomena, his thinking requires only the adjunct of structure to rise from the level of a blurry, uncertain, undifferentiated mass to that of a really significant vision with a grip on the real world.

Discipline and a conscious effort at organization will be of great help to him if he wants to deepen his learning and judgment. Once his intellectual faculties are disciplined, he’s likely to succeed in any of the following fields: teaching, historical scholarship, advertising, writing (journalistic or literary), travel, etc. – in fact, communication in any form.
Chad Butler 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.
