Consciousness and The Ideal of Self:
Hayden Summerall is trying to overcome his feelings of insecurity. To do so, he needs a home: a dwelling, a territory, or perhaps a safe space or setting where he can rest, and let down his systems of defense against the outer world, which he finds aggressive and hostile. He is ready to make some sacrifices in order to maintain and consolidate the structure he has chosen. True inner security, based on real knowledge of himself, his abilities, and his shortcomings, his strengths and his weaknesses would no doubt be most effective and would allow him to remain open to the varieties of experience offered by the world.
Hayden Summerall is affectionate by nature, and love plays a decisive and central role in his life. He is a charmer who needs to love and be loved. Aware of his personal magnetism and the power it gives him, he will make subtle changes in himself in order to attract positive attention. He is sophisticated and pleased to savor a lifestyle he sees as a consummate art.
Hayden Summerall does not always feel in tune with society’s rules and conventions. The mask of sociability most well-adapted people wear is difficult for Hayden to assume, and it is hard for Hayden to act out the roles expected of him as a normal member of the community. The usual social values and rewards, like money, respect, and prestige, only mildly interest Hayden. Hayden’s refusal or inability to play the social game may make it hard for Hayden to find a job, which may have negative consequences on Hayden’s financial and legal status. Reluctant and unwilling to adapt to the demands of social life, Hayden sometimes unwittingly makes mistakes when a new project is in the planning stages. For example, Hayden may leave gaps in a job application, botch up an interview with a prospective employer, or make a big mistake when bidding for a contract. But Hayden’s financial difficulties may clear up when Hayden’s emotional ones do.
Hayden Summerall is sober and rather reserved and may even strike people as harsh and austere at times. Perhaps Hayden was raised in an atmosphere of rigor and sobriety, and, as a result, grew up very fast. Hayden has acquired a spirit of self-sufficiency, tend to be rather uncompromising, and has a touchy sense of personal dignity and worth. It is almost as though Hayden were fighting an inner battle with a father figure. The psychological models Hayden received from a father figure as a result of Hayden’s interaction and Hayden’s own interaction with authority may not have played a major role in shaping Hayden’s relationships with the outer world and society. Hayden may thus have been forced to compensate for this lack with individual determination.
As a result, although Hayden is skillful, meticulous, conscientious, and efficient, a lack of self-confidence and personal assurance sometimes makes Hayden timid and hesitant. Hayden sometimes feels as though Hayden is only masquerading as a respectable, sober adult. Hayden tend to be far too critical of Hayden’s self and rarely feel satisfied that Hayden is living up to Hayden’s ideal. These unnecessary guilt feelings may lead Hayden to turn down the prominent career positions for which Hayden is fully qualified. Hayden is aware that early success is often short-lived and fragile and that time rewards those who know how to be patient and persistent, like Hayden.
Hayden Summerall has a profound and fertile inner life and a prolific imagination, but their energy resources are not always sufficient to follow through on and accomplish their multitude of dreams. They tend to live in osmosis with their environment, and effort and action take a heavy toll on them. Usually, they understand phenomena and events intuitively, without really making any effort; so they are not in the habit of disciplining or shaping their thought processes. Like their thoughts, their personality is rather amorphous and disorganized. As a result of this lack of structure, they may have some trouble asserting their individuality and making some personal contribution to society through their career. Their tendency to shut out reality and dream impossible dreams, like their refusal of responsibility and duty, may be a source of some difficulty for them.
Adaptation and Sensitivity:
Freedom and independence are primary values for Hayden. 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.
Due to Hayden Summerall’s extreme sensitivity and irrepressible imagination, he sometimes has trouble distinguishing dreams from reality. Although his bubbling imagination provides an abundant source of inspiration for creative or spiritual evolution, it tends to be less helpful and positive in matters that concern his self-assertion as responsible and self-sufficient. Although his psychic faculties drive him to fulfill himself through artistic activities like painting, drawing, music, or poetry, it may be difficult for him to market his talents in terms of a career. In a relationship, Hayden is extremely romantic and does not always see others the way they really are. Because of his tendency to idealize people, he may be disappointed when their true natures are eventually betrayed.
Hayden Summerall does not always readily reveal himself, and he tends to protect his sensitivity. He has a penchant for intense emotions. Sexuality is a prominent element in his life, and his relationships, which are usually passionate, are motivated by his desires. He likes to understand the hidden side of people, their secret or unconfessed motivations. He would thus find a career which placed him in contact with troubled people especially rewarding.
Love and Sensuality:
Hayden Summerall’s personality is dominated by love and affectivity. He is subject to love at first sight, and his gallant heart sometimes leaps forth impulsively; his sensitivity is lively and powerful. Amorous rivalries and conquests may be a recurring theme throughout his life.
Hayden Summerall’s birth chart indicates 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.
Vivacious and spontaneous, Hayden is quite outspoken and frank. He enjoys provoking surprise and may develop an exhibitionist side. Encounters of friendships with uncommon people or in unusual circumstances play a great role in his life. He is quite independent and is unlikely to settle down permanently, unless he finds a talented mate who loves and understands him as a friend and equal.
Passionate and idealistic, Hayden Summerall has little desire to live out his relationships according to society’s rules and customs. He is also attracted to people with original or eccentric personalities – artists, intellectuals, adventurers: all promising a relationship that is far from banal. However, Hayden Summerall will prove better at friendship than at sensuality which could quickly tire him.
Hayden Summerall may be characterized by 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 his romantic nature against the prerogatives of his career.
Hayden Summerall is hypersensitive and tends to relive the anxieties, apprehensions, and romantic absolutes of their first love relationships, which occurred around the ages of 13-14 years or 20-21 years. They are exquisitely sensitive, but almost completely barricaded behind a layer of aloofness. They will not settle for anything less than eternal commitment, total harmony, and absolute loyalty. They are sometimes presumed to be cold, even by those close to them. They usually hide their emotional reactions or do not even allow them to reach the level of their consciousness, in an effort to protect their sensitivity, which they see as their weak point. They are fairly vulnerable, even in the intimacy of a stable and established relationship. Usually, they will disguise their strong feelings as a kind of possessiveness or even jealousy. Certain misfortunes may arouse a negative emotional state inside them, and they feel unworthy of the love which is lavished on them. This psychological prohibition which rules over all of their desires and affects should loosen with the passage of time; likewise, their fear of approaching the other will diminish. As a result, the second part of their romantic life will be more rewarding. In any case, if they want to experience a harmonious love relationship and gratify themselves emotionally, the defense mechanisms they have elaborated to make themselves inaccessible to others will have to be dismantled. Any profound relationship will also require that they learn how to forget themselves occasionally in the other.
Hayden has a great emotional ideal, full of subtlety and tenderness. However, Hayden tends to be overwhelmed by imagination and may not be selective enough when choosing a partner. Romantic and trusting nature may make Hayden vulnerable. Although Hayden strives to establish peaceful, uncomplicated relations, Hayden sometimes experience painful disappointments. Artistic delicacy and refinement provides Hayden with sincere love of arts, music, and literature. Hayden is likely to be gifted poet.
Mental and Intellect:
Hayden Summerall is an intuitive thinker. He does not reason things out through a long, articulate, logical discourse; instead, he seizes the visions or insights that spontaneously flash into his consciousness. He thus has a form of immediate knowledge of various phenomena which is based neither on reasoning nor on any elaborate thought process or method. As a result, if Hayden Summerall is an extrovert, he will possess an inventive, innovative spirit gifted for improvisation. If Hayden Summerall is an introvert, his mind will be an abundant source of personal inner truths.
Hayden Summerall expresses his thoughts and ideas carefully, but with a relative lack of spontaneity. He is rather introverted and looks inside himself for the solutions to the problems he encounters in life. Because he tends to mistrust customary thought patterns, his opinion is usually highly personal.
