Consciousness and The Ideal of Self:
Gabby Barrett is patient. Gabby Barrett is fond of routine, ritual, and any other events or ceremonies which mark the passage of time and the seasons. Gabby Barrett tries to be as pragmatic as possible and unconsciously senses that Gabby Barrett’s relationship with material things will be the best foundation for Gabby Barrett’s self-development and individuation. As a result, Gabby Barrett is attached to Gabby Barrett’s possessions and will make every effort to cling to them.
Born under a new moon (when the moon and sun were in the same part of the sky), Gabby Barrett enjoys a positive balance between the conscious and unconscious aspects of their psyche. Their determination and sensitivity balance one another and work together harmoniously. Their inner life contributes to the relationships with other people which make up their outer life. Their parents or teachers probably gave them the type of education which was adapted to their personality.
As a result, their personality is basically balanced, which, of course, does not mean that their life is devoid of little asperities. Generally, the goals they set for themselves correspond to their skills. Without giving the matter much thought, they tend to follow prevailing trends and behave in a conventional enough way. They are subjective and see the world according to their own perceptions instead of the way it really is.
Gabrielle Barrett has an inalienable awareness of the void and the vanity of existence. She is sometimes disoriented and deconstructed by an unknowable, unconscious force and tends to ignore or disparage the superficial pleasures and pains of daily life, preferring to dive into the depths of human experience as deeply as her intellectual, emotional, and spiritual capacities permit. Grappling with her “fundamental nature,” with the deepest and most primitive part of herself, she is sometimes aghast at the discovery of the sheer power of the life instinct and feels an imperious need to cope with it.
This special consciousness she has 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 her at the outset. It is not easy for her to recognize herself in any social or narcissistic models or identify with any existing roles or attitudes, so she sometimes finds herself forced to construct and assert her own identity on a basis which may impress others with its intensity, if not its eccentricity.
Adaptation and Sensitivity:
Hypersensitive, Gabby Barrett is extremely receptive to the mood in her surroundings. Gabby Barrett is unconsciously able to perceive the parapsychic signals or aura people give off, in addition to their words. As a result, Gabby Barrett is extremely compassionate and ready to devote herself to their well-being. Gabby Barrett’s imagination has formulated the dream of an ideal life, and Gabby Barrett sometimes feels ill-equipped for the realities of this existence. Gabby Barrett tends to dodge difficult situations. With Gabby Barrett’s partner, Gabby Barrett seeks fusion.
Gabby Barrett’s intellect is lively, agile, and sensitive. However, Gabby does not always avail herself of it and may be confused or irrational in some situations. Although Gabby enjoys playing with words, ideas, and concepts, her thought sometimes lacks discipline and structure. Gabby is fairly preoccupied with details and may tend to waste her nervous and mental energy in futile verbal outpourings. Moreover, Gabby’s feelings sometimes blur her objective vision of phenomena and people, which may cause her to make errors in judgment.
Out of either shyness or caution, Gabby Barrett hides and protects her sensitivity behind a fairly cool, aloof exterior. Gabby Barrett is fairly conservative, respectful of tradition and convention, and like to follow the rules. Because Gabby Barrett needs stability to alleviate her feelings of frustration and sometimes emotional dependency, Gabby Barrett has great faith in contracts which seal relationships. Gabby Barrett’s ties to her past are fairly strong. They are a source of reassurance and safety, because her parents likely gave a lot to her.
Gabby Barrett’s sensitivity and emotions are sometimes in conflict with her instincts. This inner discord makes her a fairly complicated relationship partner, and her behavior sometimes strikes others as mysterious or baffling. She is liable to switch from one attitude to the opposite. Sexuality is an important part of her life, and her relationships are most often motivated by her desires. Nevertheless, due to her unconscious inner battle, she does not often succeed in reconciling and fulfilling her emotional and sexual needs. Due to the strength of her instincts, passion may overwhelm her and drag her into situations she cannot always control, which intermingle erotic ecstasy and anguish, guilt, and aggressiveness.
Love and Sensuality:
Gabby Barrett is looking for the ideal love and tends to idealize her friends and lovers. A bizarre character, she may prefer to dream of her soulmate instead of making love to one; she is more in love with the idea of love than anything else. Her idealism may hide a fear of truly committing herself to a relationship; she tries to intellectualize everything. In time, two options will seem clear to her: an amorous friendship based on shared ideas and intellectual exchange, or an open relationship, free of all constraints except mutual respect.
Gabby Barrett’s birth chart indicates an emotional function which is expressed in a direct and fairly impulsive way. She enjoys reaching out to other people and making discoveries. An eternal teenager with her gaze riveted on the future, she is imbued with an eminently subjective and personal idealism.
Gabby Barrett is profoundly sensitive and is easily submerged by her emotions. She is not always able to muster the moral strength to assert herself in the real world. Her character tends to make her flee from her responsibilities and, in love, to yield to the vicissitudes of fate, like a wispy reed. As a result, she may easily allow herself to be seduced or gobbled up, because she cannot say no or she is too sensitive to pity. Her happiness will depend on the one she meets, unless she frees herself through artistic, mystical, or psychic sublimation.
Gabby Barrett is hesitant and sometimes unstable romantically and may have a somewhat tumultuous love life. As a partner, Gabby Barrett reaches out and then pulls back, gives and then refuses. Actually, Gabby Barrett is far more in love with Gabby Barrett’s liberty and Gabby Barrett’s dreams of love than with reality. Gabby Barrett sometimes yields to strange attractions which appear incomprehensible to Gabby Barrett once Gabby Barrett has recovered Gabby Barrett’s senses. Only a friendly lover, who can be a loyal and understanding companion, can provide Gabby Barrett with complete emotional stability.
Gabby Barrett has an ardent and amorous character, and her relationships are enlivened by intensity and passion. A charmer perpetually engaged in a quest for the ideal love, Gabby Barrett is often more in love with the idea of love than with a partner. As a result, her love life may be subject to some instability. Gabby Barrett is generally attracted to original people who defy norms, standards, and classifications, and expects them to amaze and fascinate her. Her greatest contradictions surface when an intimate relationship is established. Although Gabby Barrett merges her ego entirely into the couple, she is likely to demand a total autonomy and liberty which are inimical to intimacy. If her partner charms and captivates her long enough, there is some possibility that they will form a more solid bond with her; otherwise, Gabby Barrett is likely to yield to her need for novelty and fall under the spell of an entirely different person who exerts a new kind of charm for her. Midlife may be a turning point for Gabby Barrett from this point of view. Her contradictory attitude may in some ways hide a compulsion to reject and deny the bonds of dependency inherent to a love relationship. Her behavior enables her to remain aloof, to commit herself only halfway without consciously admitting it to herself, and to avoid feeling guilty if and when she loses interest. An insatiable appetite for novelty and exaltation sometimes keeps Gabby Barrett from forming stable relationships.
Indeed, Gabby Barrett is tormented by the struggle between her undeniable need for affection and an equally imperious desire for personal progress and emancipation. As a result of this inner turmoil, her romantic aspirations are usually sabotaged sooner or later by her conviction that her partner has become an obstacle to her individual progress. Because Gabby Barrett thinks of love as a restraint, she may even eventually consciously refuse any emotional approach to love interests. As an ascetic, Gabby Barrett 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, Gabby Barrett is also likely to meet “the one” who inspires her to initiate a change in her behavior.
Mental and Intellect:
Gabby Barrett has a rather irrational mind and a voracious intellect, which is usually subject to the rule of her prolific imagination. Although she is likely to have flashes of intuition which may prove to be correct, her thought processes are sometimes messy and confused. Her mind, which is oriented in many different directions at the same time, is ruled by her emotions and feelings. In tune with psychic and parapsychic phenomena, her 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.
Gabby Barrett expresses her thoughts and ideas carefully, but with a relative lack of spontaneity. Gabby is rather introverted and looks inside herself for the solutions to the problems she encounters in life. Because Gabby tends to mistrust customary thought patterns, her opinion is usually highly personal.
Gabby Barrett’s intellectual faculties and wit are sometimes slowed down because they are turned inward. Because Gabby Barrett tends to be oriented toward herself, she rarely tries to communicate with others for the simple pleasure of doing so. Indeed, Gabby Barrett sometimes feels misunderstood. Moreover, it seems difficult to Gabby Barrett to express the complexity of her inner perceptions.
