There is a fundamental contradiction or opposition at the core of Gabby Barrett’s personality, but it does not shatter their integrity. However, it causes their inner world to be complex, divided, or even torn, without ever being totally dissociated, because every thought and action is a source of unification. As a result, intellectually Gabby Barrett is a talented syncretist. They are able to see the link between heterogeneous and diverse elements which do not appear to be related in the least. They can bring about surprising reconciliation, create unexpected bonds, combine beliefs which seem mutually incompatible.
Their imaginative powers also flow from the division in their psyche and are evidenced by inspirations, visions, and abilities which exceed the context of logic and reasoning. They allow themselves to be guided by irrational phenomena like foreshadowing or premonitions, which well up from the depths of their being. They are more of a medium than an intuitive, because intuition requires a clear consciousness of reality. They are borne along by currents and tides of knowledge and live in symbiosis with forces which overwhelm them. In fact, it is because of this relative passivity that they are more or less a medium, because they wish merely to perceive what surrounds them; they have no wish to impose their will. Although this attitude endows them with great potential for productivity, it may also become dangerous, if they find themselves overpowered by forces they can never totally control. They tend to perceive things as undifferentiated; they do not always see the world as an organized, structured, hierarchical entity. Instead, they are sensitive to energy flows, to invisible forces which they perceive and try to interpret. Their consciousness knows no bounds, and they do not feel confined by either space or time. But the image of the infinite imprinted on their imagination has a tendency to manifest itself with a lack of definition, in most of their thoughts and acts.
In relation to other people, they usually demonstrate warmth and humanism. They are a fairly pleasant companion, although their sensitivity can be annoying at times. They tend to identify with their friends to a great degree, instead of remaining apart and empathetic. In fact, they are capable of losing themselves in another person at times. They should take time to reflect upon the quality of what they bestow on others and on whom they bestow it. They would doubtless come to the conclusion that their devotion is motivated by guilt feelings; their giving is a way of escaping from themselves, and their broad tolerance sometimes merely hides a weak character. Their basic aptitude for compassion could inspire them to relieve human misery, either privately or professionally. Hospital or prison work would not frighten them, because they understand them as closed environments which are open in terms of the inner adventures and journeys they house. Inner adventures are one thing they understand.
In their ideal, they feel capable of easing the worst suffering, but sometimes as they help others overcome their problems, they are also trying to face up to their collective unconscious – that is, the final product of all their failures to assert themselves, from childhood right up to adulthood. Because of their hypersensitivity, they are a fairly delicate person. They tend to go through sorrowful or depressive phases, long psychic tunnels where their anguishes lurk. They would be wise to withstand them instead of trying to escape. If they could detect what triggered their lack of confidence in their unconscious, they might be healed.

Gabby Barrett is torn by a deep inner conflict between her intellectual, rational, methodical side and a more romantic, emotional, sensitive tendency. Her spontaneous urges and feelings are often restrained by her fussy, perfectionist reasoning; her idealistic ambitions and fantasies are stopped short by the moral and social considerations imposed by her intellect.
Conversely, her analytical skills and critical judgments might be at odds with her emotionalism and impressionability. She must work to make these two influences mutually comprehensible, to achieve, upon maturity, a well-balanced personality enriched by opposing elements. The most promising way to resolve the conflict is by moderating her sensitivity, developing her decision-making capacities, and channeling her energy. Without stifling her intuition and imagination, she must be wary of her tendency to escape into a dream world.
Born in the three days prior to the new moon’s appearance, Gabby Barrett is said to be of the “balsamic moon” type. This soli-lunar configuration gives her a spiritualistic character closely attached to generous humanitarian ideals. She is sometimes sorely tried to limit herself to the narrow scope of individual ambition.
Indeed, she aims for a humanitarian ideal which would include the outcasts and the unfortunate. She fervently hopes the meek will inherit the earth. To bring about this ideal, she is likely to seize every resource placed at her disposal: physical effort, money (if she has it), speech, her writings, and her poetic or artistic talents. However, she should be wary of her unconscious guilt feelings.
Actually, there is no reason for her to devote herself to her mission entirely; a simple daily effort should suffice to express her philosophy and free her conscience. Usually, the three days preceding the new moon will be time in the monthly lunar cycle most favorable to her activities and her general energy level.
