Dean Gladstone is a philosopher and author who has written extensively on the nature of consciousness.
Dean Gladstone is a meticulous and dogged worker, gifted for tasks which require great precision and discipline. He might struggle with pessimism about his own self-worth and try to compensate for this feeling by constantly keeping busy and devoting himself almost entirely to those close to him.
Dean Gladstone has an extremely sensitive and receptive nature, tending to live in osmosis with his surroundings. His individuality almost seems to be diluted in a flood of sensations and impressions which are continually washing over him, and he sometimes finds it difficult to communicate his feelings to other people. This tide of emotion is a source of inspiration and intuition, but his fluid inner structure and organization sometimes make it difficult for him to grasp the essence of his dreams and share them with other people. He is not at all combative, and this tends to hinder his efforts to fit into society and assert himself productively.
Dean Gladstone is likely to prefer fantasy to reality, but his refusal to abandon his unattainable dreams is a psychological trap he has fallen into without realizing it. He must understand that by running away from his obligations and commitments, he only increases the feelings of guilt which made reality so distasteful in the first place. Once he free himself from this pernicious process, he has a great deal of potential for fulfilling himself in the outer world, either by devoting himself to some sort of social work or by cultivating his considerable artistic talents.
Dean Gladstone has a good balance between his need for movement and his tendency to be sedentary. He is just as likely to adapt to situations which require outbursts of initiative as to those which demand patience and perseverance.
Dean Gladstone values freedom and independence. He expends a great deal of energy to ensure that his private life expresses them. To avoid being tied down, he tends to be skittish when it comes to any profound involvement in a relationship. As a consequence, he might intellectualize his emotions and feelings and feel as though he can live more easily on friendship than on love. Extremely socially-minded but idealistic, he almost certainly feels an affinity with the ideals of some social reform movement. His imagination looks to the future.
Dean Gladstone has a sensitive and affectionate nature. He seeks tenderness and gentleness more than passion. His relationships with others are smooth and pleasant, and he has a natural sense of tact and social grace.
Dean Gladstone has a sensitive nature. Although he may sometimes have trouble controlling his emotional reactions, they are nevertheless a source of vital energy for a constructive passion and may make an extremely positive contribution to his career. In relations with other people, he is quite friendly; he willingly reaches out to people and knows how to listen to their desires and their problems.
Dean Gladstone is an expansive, affable, and communicative associate. Indeed, some people find him generous almost to a fault! He gives of himself and his resources unstintingly. Paradoxically, there are times when he is self-focused. He reacts instinctively, without taking the trouble to analyze a given situation, and is prone to misjudge. As a result, his everyday life may be riddled with a whole variety of practical problems. Indeed, he senses a conflict between his social life and his family and will sometimes find it hard to fulfill himself in both spheres at the same time. His attitude toward his private life may inhibit his ambitions for social or career expansion; at worst, society (the law) may impinge on his private life. He should be careful not to project his personal problems onto his partner. If, instead, the two of you analyzed the problem, you might be able to find opportunities to resolve it together.
Dean Gladstone has a cool and distant demeanor, although his sensitivity is very apparent. In some cases, his rather austere and rigid behavior and his refusal to yield too readily to sentimentality discourage others from being too demonstrative of their tenderness and affection. He has spells of melancholy in which he does not feel worthy of being loved and tend to forbid himself any emotional fulfillment whatsoever. An austere or somewhat traumatic childhood experience may be the source of this behavior. It is difficult for his inner self to be detached from this past life, and he sometimes has trouble reconciling the image he has of himself as an adult with the one he acquired back then. The idea he has of himself as an individual is related to the image his parents projected onto him as a child. Nevertheless, the past is history, and he is now an adult. Through self-work, he can rid himself of these phantoms. He has the ability to overcome his mistakes, as well as great endurance and will power to achieve his goals. Notwithstanding, he must not repress his sensitivity in order to succeed.
Dean Gladstone has a fairly engaging idealism and a nearly palpable spirit of brotherhood and friendship. The truth is, he prefers to observe life from afar rather than come down and dirty his hands in it. However, this fearful and distant attitude will not necessarily enable him to know and love himself better.
Dean Gladstone explores the love and sensuality of other cultures.
Dean Gladstone has attractions that are usually immediate and intense. They rise quickly to fever pitch. The story of these passions is often dramatic to excess, combining all the plot elements of a classic love tragedy: jealousy, possessiveness, agony as an erotic stimulant, etc.
Dean Gladstone has a birth chart indicating an emotional function which is usually expressed carefully and reasonably. Distrustful of his emotional urges and somewhat wary of his feelings, he tries to rid himself of all partiality and try to get some perspective and distance before making an emotional commitment.
Dean Gladstone is Romantic and idealistic although inhibited in love. He tends to seek the impossible. Although his love life may be marked by disappointments, he will never ignore his imagination. His ideal of independence may nevertheless be frustrated by the constraints inherent to married life.
Dean has a good balance between his need for movement and his tendency to be sedentary. He is just as likely to adapt to situations which require outbursts of initiative as to those which demand patience and perseverance. When it comes to romance, Dean is sometimes indecisive. His behavior may baffle his partners; a hesitation waltz in which he yields to affection and then suddenly bolts. Unfortunately, his timing is usually a little bit wrong – he may pass up or spoil a relationship which would have been extremely fulfilling. He tends to be especially attracted to people with a strong sexual aura; however, they are the type who could torment him or take advantage of his weaknesses.
Dean Gladstone has a strong sensual and affectionate urges which drive him to seek pleasure. His need for romantic fulfillment may compel him to marry, because he also seeks the legal and social legitimacy the institution of marriage confers on an emotional bond. Indeed, the household is liable to be prosperous and even opulent, as if this offered further evidence that he had indeed achieved success. However, privately, he might be less committed to certain obligations and duties. At worst, he might deny the commitments that his optimism and expansiveness made him rush into too soon. If this were to be the case, the outward image of the couple's success (wealth and comfort, etc.) would only be a façade which compensated for its emotional impoverishment and failure. Sooner or later, this hypocrisy might provoke a full-blown conflict. A second possibility is that a psychic incompatibility may gradually take root, pitting your romantic nature against the prerogatives of your career.
Dean Gladstone is cautious and reserved. He is sometimes unwilling to open himself to others if he is not sure of being accepted. He will always hang back somewhat from his emotional urges, parceling out his expressions of affection, because he has learned – sometimes at his expense – that even the most harmonious relationships require some compromise. For him, “good fences make good neighbors,” and well-marked boundaries can prevent future suffering. Thus, even when he is in love, he remains fairly circumspect. When he finds himself attracted to a partner, he privately engages in a careful analysis of their personality and life story, endeavoring to know them profoundly, to see whether he is likely to be able to share his life and future with them. As a result of his sensitivity, he has a profound affinity for all of the arts. Music, literature, painting, and graphic arts are likely to enrich his existence and make it pleasant. He could progress in any career in which balance, order, and practicality predominate.
Dean has an ardent and amorous character, and his relationships are enlivened by intensity and passion. A charmer perpetually engaged in a quest for the ideal love, he is often more in love with the idea of love than with a partner. As a result, his love life may be subject to some instability. He is generally attracted to original people who defy norms, standards, and classifications, and expect them to amaze and fascinate him. His greatest contradictions surface when an intimate relationship is established. Although he merges his ego entirely into the couple, he is likely to demand a total autonomy and liberty which are inimical to intimacy. If his partner charms and captivates him long enough, there is some possibility that they will form a more solid bond with him; otherwise, he is likely to yield to his need for novelty and fall under the spell of an entirely different person who exerts a new kind of charm for him. Midlife may be a turning point for him from this point of view. His contradictory attitude may in some ways hide a compulsion to reject and deny the bonds of dependency inherent to a love relationship. His behavior enables him to remain aloof, to commit himself only halfway without consciously admitting it to himself, and to avoid feeling guilty if and when he loses interest. An insatiable appetite for novelty and exaltation sometimes keeps him from forming stable relationships. Indeed, he is tormented by the struggle between his undeniable need for affection and an equally imperious desire for personal progress and emancipation. As a result of this inner turmoil, his romantic aspirations are usually sabotaged sooner or later by his conviction that his partner has become an obstacle to his individual progress. Because he thinks of love as a restraint, he may even eventually consciously refuse any emotional approach to love interests. As an ascetic, he will try to deflect the love function from its natural target and use the energy and bliss it generates for other purposes, the process psychologists call sublimation. However, he is also likely to meet “the one” who inspires him to initiate a change in his behavior.
Dean Gladstone has a strong mental and intellect.
Dean Gladstone has a fairly skeptical temperament which relies on remarkable analytical and critical faculties. He is sensitive and curious, a keen observer of facts who collects detailed information he will later pore over and analyze. This type of logical, rational mind is extremely efficient for elaborating methods or sorting and classifying information. However, it sometimes lacks flexibility or broad-mindedness.
Dean expresses his thoughts and ideas in direct, spontaneous outbursts. He is fairly extroverted and eager to discover and understand the outer world. An idealist, he looks forward to a bright future but is sometimes subjective and reckless.
Dean Gladstone has an undeniable gift for oratory which could be applied to a communications-related occupation or to artistic expression (as a stage or screen actor). Writing and dance, two other arts which associate expression and movement, might also be fields in which he would excel.
Dean Gladstone has a structured mind and penetrating intelligence, but his thought processes tend to be somewhat plodding. This slow pace may be the consequence of some failure or humiliation during his formative years. He is fairly inhibited and pessimistic and tends to doubt in himself and his intellectual skills despite his undeniable gifts as a thinker. He should become aware that his thought patterns and habits are the sign that he is on the brink of a really big breakthrough which will give him an understanding of the complexity of things and phenomena; however, it will take time and effort.
His mind is deep and accurate and is attracted by the essence of things and their fundamental structure. As a result, he is particularly suited to the study of mathematics, architecture, engineering, or perhaps even politics. His contribution to society will probably be most lasting and effective in the field of knowledge and expertise. Whatever career he chooses, he should learn to work alone, because he tends to be uncomfortable in some surroundings.
He will also have to learn to conquer his impatience, because he tends to waste time agonizing over deadlines and schedules. Moreover, a lack of self-confidence could cause him to be fairly conventional and respectful of time-honored ways. Instead, he should find the courage to question his convictions.
