Consciousness and The Ideal of Self:
J-Hope seems passive and more or less resigned to his fate, including his insecurity. Actually, J-Hope is fairly introverted and withdrawn, trying to make sense out of his inner confusion and fathom his inner depths.
Your personality and behavior are liable to be disrupted by a contradiction between the masculine and feminine archetypes ruling your psyche. Because your sensitivity is in conflict with your determination, your attitude and performance may be moody, fluctuating, and uncertain. Usually, you have the feeling you have to make superhuman efforts to succeed in assuaging your yearnings and fulfilling your ambitions. Your unconscious, sensitive side often disapproves of your conscious endeavors and stealthily works to defeat them, causing crucial omissions, mistakes, and gaps which effectively sabotage your plans. In your relationships, the images you build up and projects on the other are contradictory. As a result, any bond, even if it is pleasant and positive, also grates on your nerves. You find it dissatisfying and irritating at the same time.
J-Hope 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.
You are sober and reserved and may even strike people as rigid and austere at times. Perhaps J-Hope was raised in an atmosphere of rigor and sobriety as a child, and, as a result, became an adult a little too fast. In any case, J-Hope quickly acquired a spirit of self-sufficiency and a strong sense of his personal dignity and worth. At work, J-Hope is skillful, meticulous, conscientious, and efficient, but his lack of self confidence and personal assurance hinder his decision-making skills. Although J-Hope would deserve a prominent executive position, he might refuse any that are offered due to his fear of being in the limelight. J-Hope is aware that early success is often short-lived and fragile and that time rewards those who are patient, which, in J-Hope’s case, is true. The psychological mechanisms described above are probably the result of a paternal complex. In childhood, J-Hope’s identity may have been too strongly attached to that of his father or a father figure, for one of the following reasons:
– the bond with his father was too close,
– his father was absent and/or idealized,
– his father was too strict, etc.
In any case, this psychological particularity can act either as a handicap or as an opportunity for the individual to overcome himself. It will result in two groups of opposite but complementary reactions which will rule J-Hope’s behavior all his life:
– hypersensitivity or insensitivity
– intense life wish or discomfort with life
– obsession or renunciation
– skepticism or fanaticism
– asceticism or lust
– jealousy or indifference
– effort or laziness
The so-called “Saturnian” phases (at age 7, 14, 21, 28 or 29, and 35 years) will be transitional periods that give J-Hope an opportunity to resolve this complex in real life.
Behind a façade of fairly engaging idealism and a nearly palpable spirit of brotherhood and friendship, J-Hope hides a fear of emotional commitment. The truth is, J-Hope 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 J-Hope to know and love himself better.
J-Hope has an inalienable awareness of the void and the vanity of existence. J-Hope 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 J-Hope’s intellectual, emotional, and spiritual capacities permit. Grappling with J-Hope’s “fundamental nature,” with the deepest and most primitive part of J-Hope, J-Hope 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 J-Hope 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 J-Hope at the outset. It is not easy for J-Hope to recognize J-Hope in any social or narcissistic models or identify with any existing roles or attitudes, so J-Hope sometimes finds J-Hope forced to construct and assert J-Hope’s own identity on a basis which may impress others with its intensity, if not its eccentricity.
Adaptation and Sensitivity:
J-Hope is pragmatic and realistic. He evaluates people and things according to practical, common-sense criteria instead of abstract concepts. A sensualist and lover of luxury, he has a penchant for material comfort and takes great joy in physical pleasures. In relation to others, socially and privately, he likes to build stable relationships and is not especially fond of change. His warmth gives him a great deal of ease when meeting people, as clients (for business purposes), but his close relations also benefit from this affection and his ability to express his feelings naturally and openly.
J-Hope’s intellect is lively, agile, and sensitive. However, J-Hope does not always avail J-Hope of it and may be confused or irrational in some situations. Although J-Hope enjoys playing with words, ideas, and concepts, J-Hope’s thought sometimes lacks discipline and structure. J-Hope is fairly preoccupied with details and may tend to waste J-Hope’s nervous and mental energy in futile verbal outpourings. Moreover, J-Hope’s feelings sometimes blur J-Hope’s objective vision of phenomena and people, which may cause J-Hope to make errors in judgment.
Although J-Hope’s demeanor is cool and distant, he is extremely sensitive. In some cases, his rather austere and rigid behavior and 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 tends to forbid himself any emotional fulfillment. 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. It should be easy for him to rid himself of these phantoms through self-work. He has the ability to overcome his mistakes, as well as great endurance and will power to achieve his goals. Nevertheless, he must not repress his sensitivity in order to succeed.
Although J-Hope is pragmatic and relatively realistic, they are sometimes tormented by an insidious feeling of insecurity which interferes with their ability to grasp reality. Change unnerves them, and at certain times, they tend to cling to old-fashioned customs or lifestyles. Insecurities might cause them to repress their emotional needs.
Because J-Hope discovered his individuality early in life, he quickly developed an original and independent identity. His first taste of liberty may have led him to challenge the education and values he received from family and class tradition, and he was able to forge a strong, original personality and philosophy. His relationships are usually free of conflict, because he is able to reconcile his need for independence with his desire for affection. However, his partners should be open and lively people, able to keep pace with him in his rapid evolution. He has an inspired and extremely lively wit and a brisk interest in the future, technological progress, and new lifestyles. He would be especially successful in communications-related careers like journalism, film, TV, radio, and advertising. Although he is an individualist, he has a powerful desire to contribute to the evolution of society and better its development.
Due to J-Hope’s extreme sensitivity and irrepressible imagination, he sometimes has trouble distinguishing dreams from reality. Although his imagination can be an abundant source of inspiration for creative or spiritual evolution, it tends to be less helpful and positive in matters that concern earning a decent living out in the real world. In a relationship, J-Hope is extremely romantic and does not always see others the way they really are. He has elegant tastes and art and beauty are one of his chief pleasures in life.
Sensitivity and emotions sometimes conflict with J-Hope’s instincts. This inner discord makes J-Hope a fairly complicated relationship partner, and J-Hope’s behavior sometimes strikes others as mysterious or baffling. J-Hope is liable to switch from one attitude to the opposite. Sexuality is an important part of J-Hope’s life, and J-Hope’s relationships are most often motivated by J-Hope’s desires. Nevertheless, due to J-Hope’s unconscious inner battle, J-Hope does not often succeed in reconciling and fulfilling J-Hope’s emotional and sexual needs. Due to the strength of J-Hope’s instincts, passion may overwhelm J-Hope and drag J-Hope into situations J-Hope cannot always control, which intermingle erotic ecstasy and anguish, guilt, and aggressiveness.
Love and Sensuality:
J-Hope’s sensitivity may sometimes overwhelm their partners, and their compassion for the other is profound. They readily sacrifice their own interest to others, to provide help and assistance. A romantic as well as an idealist, they sometimes lack discernment in the choice of their partners. They are fairly confused and evasive and have trouble expressing their feelings clearly. Nevertheless, they are capable of devoting themselves entirely to the person they love. They have a tendency to daydream and become lost in themselves.
J-Hope’s birth chart indicates an emotional function which is usually expressed carefully and reasonably. Distrustful of J-Hope’s emotional urges and somewhat wary of J-Hope’s feelings, J-Hope tries to rid J-Hope of all partiality and tries to get some perspective and distance before making an emotional commitment.
According to the information above, J-Hope has a contradictory and somewhat enigmatic nature. J-Hope is both realistic and idealistic and does not always succeed in accomplishing J-Hope’s aspirations, though J-Hope certainly tries hard. For example, J-Hope’s taste for freedom is more often a hindrance than a true dynamic principle. In J-Hope’s relationships, J-Hope tends to fabricate illusions but may suddenly sober up next to a mate J-Hope will find dull and feel trapped in a routine. This contradiction may make J-Hope feel uncomfortable with J-Hope’s self.
In love, J-Hope has a high-minded ideal of purity. He believes it can be found in a fairly young or naive person, but he is hardly realistic about the situation. The ideal companion for J-Hope could easily become a staid person with prosaic ideas and dull, old-fashioned tastes. The type of marriage that would suit J-Hope would be one based on friendship or a fortunate coincidence of yearnings.
J-Hope 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. J-Hope is 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. J-Hope is 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. J-Hope is 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.
Mental and Intellect:
J-Hope has a rather irrational mind and a voracious intellect, which is usually subject to the rule of J-Hope’s prolific imagination. Although J-Hope is likely to have flashes of intuition which may prove to be correct, J-Hope’s thought processes are sometimes messy and confused. J-Hope’s mind, which is oriented in many different directions at the same time, is ruled by J-Hope’s emotions and feelings. In tune with psychic and parapsychic phenomena, J-Hope’s 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.
J-Hope does not express his thoughts and ideas smoothly or easily. J-Hope tends to be subjective, seeking to know himself better through a process of introversion.
My intellectual faculties and wit are sometimes slowed down because they are turned inward. Because I tend to be oriented toward myself, I rarely try to communicate with others for the simple pleasure of doing so. Indeed, I sometimes feel misunderstood. Moreover, it seems difficult to me to express the complexity of my inner perceptions.
In relations with other people, J-Hope’s behavior is usually kind and benevolent. He exerts a certain charm, knows how to speak persuasively and convincingly, and is adept at smoothing the asperities of what he has to say when it is necessary. This aspect of J-Hope’s personality is a great advantage to him socially; however, in situations where he must either compete or deal with direct conflict and hostility, he may be somewhat at a loss for how to behave.
J-Hope 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.
J-Hope has a structured mind and penetrating intelligence, but their thought processes tend to be somewhat plodding. This slow pace may be the consequence of some failure or humiliation during their formative years. They are fairly inhibited and pessimistic and tend to doubt in themselves and their intellectual skills despite their undeniable gifts as a thinker. They should become aware that their thought patterns and habits are the sign that they are on the brink of a really big breakthrough which will give them an understanding of the complexity of things and phenomena; however, it will take time and effort.
J-Hope’s mind is deep and accurate and is attracted by the essence of things and their fundamental structure. As a result, they are particularly suited to the study of mathematics, architecture, engineering, or perhaps even politics. Their contribution to society will probably be most lasting and effective in the field of knowledge and expertise. Whatever career they choose, they should learn to work alone, because they tend to be uncomfortable in some surroundings.
J-Hope will also have to learn to conquer their impatience, because they tend to waste time agonizing over deadlines and schedules. Moreover, a lack of self-confidence could cause them to be fairly conventional and respectful of time-honored ways. Instead, they should find the courage to question their convictions.
