Consciousness and The Ideal of Self:
Isabelle Eriksen is determined to obtain a superlative grip on her emotional urges; she practices holding back her impulses and controlling them. Although it is not an easy apprenticeship, she wants to be able to bear strain with patience, endurance, and stamina. More than anyone else, she is aware of the need for a solid and stable foundation as a prerequisite to any effective action.
Isabelle Eriksen has a paternal complex and, as a result, some trouble finding her identity. Perhaps her father or a father figure was absent physically or emotionally during her childhood, which deprived her of the patterns or models which are usually helpful in structuring a personality. Because she might have lacked a particular sense of security which could be provided by a paternal presence, as well as the examples of behavior to follow in confronting the difficulties inherent in every life, she was forced to protect herself against negative influences and find her own system in order to grow and feel secure.
Although this system was quite useful to her as a child, it has now settled in to such a degree that it interferes with her evolution. Psychological defense mechanisms and crutches which were once useful now encumber her mind or inhibit her developmental efforts. As a result, in certain situations, it is difficult for her to assert herself, and she tends to remain an awkward or passive observer. Because her authoritarian urges are mainly directed at herself rather than others, she sometimes feels guilty about her behavior. She judges herself severely, and sometimes punishes herself by setting difficult tasks for herself. Gradually, she should build up a strong inner discipline and acquire the strength to face the problems of existence in a detached and mature way.
Born under a new moon (when the moon and sun were in the same part of the sky), Isabelle Eriksen enjoys a positive balance between the conscious and unconscious aspects of her psyche. Her determination and sensitivity balance one another and work together harmoniously. Her inner life contributes to the relationships with other people which make up her outer life. Her parents or teachers probably gave her the type of education which was adapted to her personality.
As a result, her personality is basically balanced, which, of course, does not mean that her life is devoid of little asperities. Generally, the goals she sets for herself correspond to her skills. Without giving the matter much thought, she tends to follow prevailing trends and behave in a conventional enough way. She is subjective and sees the world according to her own perceptions instead of the way it really is.
Adaptation and Sensitivity:
Isabelle Eriksen is winning and attractive. She has an appetite for intense emotional experiences, especially in terms of her relationships. Enjoying the power of her personal appeal, she easily controls her emotions and only rarely reveals the true depth of her feelings.
Because her instincts take precedence over her sensitivity, she is capable of becoming jealous, possessive, and even rather harsh, without meaning to. More of a flirt than a voluptuary, she is attentive to desire. As a result, her love life will sometimes be casual and complicated.
Optimistic and happy to be alive, Isabelle Eriksen is a cheerful, expansive, pleasant associate to have. She is extremely generous (sometimes to a fault!) and gives of herself and her belongings unstintingly. This positive psychological outlook is the result of a happy childhood and especially an extremely beneficial maternal influence in infancy. She is quite likely to be a professional success; her vision of the world is perfectly adapted to prevailing opinion, and her urges and desires for personal expansion usually elicit a positive reaction from society. By old age, her good reputation and prominence may have earned her fame.
Love and Sensuality:
Isabelle Eriksen tries to express her affections in the most graceful and harmonious way possible. Indeed, she has an innate sense of harmony and strives for a love relationship characterized by balance and perfection. She tends to idealize both her partner and the institution of marriage. Any disillusionment she encounters in the pursuit of her ideal may be experienced as a frustration. She does not always ply her powers of seduction skillfully.
Isabelle Eriksen’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.
Isabelle Eriksen is fond of extremes; she needs to possess those she loves entirely. Her love life is usually complicated and pain-stricken; she knows this and tries her best to protect herself. Generally, she falls in love with those who resemble her – saints or sinners, but always passionate.
Isabelle Eriksen has high hopes and their capacity for love could be eroded if they connect with someone who is more interested in their own affairs than in ensuring the happiness of their relationship. In this situation, their charm means that they will never be short of a shoulder to cry on. A second marriage may be happier than the first.
Isabelle Eriksen may be characterized by strong sensual and affectionate urges which drive her to seek pleasure. Her need for romantic fulfillment may compel her to marry, because she 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 she had indeed achieved success. However, privately, she might be less committed to certain obligations and duties. At worst, she might deny the commitments that her optimism and expansiveness made her 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 her romantic nature against the prerogatives of her career.
Mental and Intellect:
Curious, skeptical, and pragmatic, Isabelle Eriksen has a shrewd, inquisitorial mind. She always tries to detect the hidden mechanisms and processes behind the phenomena she observes. As a result, she has developed an ability to detect the truth behind appearances and the cause behind the effect. Although this way of thinking is based on a certain logic, and there is evidence of structure and cohesion in her deductive approach, it is not always purely intellectual. Indeed, its sources lie in a certain empiricism, in facts which have been experienced, so it is open to improvement. For this reason, its fields of application are highly diverse, although research in the hard sciences, psychology, and metaphysics seem to be the best career choices.
Isabelle Eriksen tries to shun subjectivity and be as objective as possible. Her thoughts are usually structured, and her reasoning, based on objective facts or experience, usually relates to practical goals.
