J. Mascis seems passive and more or less resigned to his fate, including his insecurity. Actually, he is fairly introverted and withdrawn, trying to make sense out of his inner confusion and fathom his inner depths.
J. Mascis’s personality and behavior are liable to be disrupted by a contradiction between the masculine and feminine archetypes ruling his psyche. Because his sensitivity is in conflict with his determination, his attitude and performance may sometimes be moody, fluctuating, and uncertain. Usually, he has the feeling he has to make superhuman efforts to succeed in assuaging his yearnings and fulfilling his ambitions. His unconscious, sensitive side often disapproves of his conscious endeavors and stealthily works to defeat them, causing crucial omissions, mistakes, and gaps which effectively sabotage his plans. In his relationships, the images he builds up and projects on the other are contradictory. As a result, any bond, even if it is pleasant and positive, might also annoy him. He could find it dissatisfying and irritating at the same time.
You were raised in an atmosphere of sobriety and rigor. As a result, you grew up very fast, acquiring a spirit of self-sufficiency. You are rather uncompromising, and have a touchy sense of your personal dignity and worth. It is almost as though you were fighting an inner battle with your father or a father figure. The psychological models you received from your father or a father figure as a result of your interaction and your own interaction with authority may not have played a major role in shaping your relationships with the outer world and society. You may thus have been forced to compensate for this with individual determination. As a result, although you are skillful, meticulous, conscientious, and efficient, a lack of self-confidence and personal assurance sometimes makes you timid and hesitant. You sometimes feel as though you are only masquerading as a respectable, sober adult. You tend to be far too critical of yourself and rarely feel satisfied that you are living up to your ideal. These unnecessary guilt feelings may lead you to turn down the prominent career positions for which you are fully qualified. You are aware that early success is often short-lived and fragile and that time rewards those who know how to be patient and persistent, like you.
J. Mascis resent having to impose limitations on themselves, and they may sometimes try to dodge obligations and commitments. The obstacles and hindrances reality places on their path to personal and social development tend to depress them. They sometimes brood bitterly about the frustrations to their self-fulfillment and might have a fairly pessimistic vision of society and its possibilities.
You are an individualist who believes that the most important values in life are freedom and independence. You have thrown off the conventions and traditions of your social class and adopted an innovative lifestyle. Your passionate convictions can sometimes conflict with your relationships, as you are an uncompromising partner. You should learn to recognize your own limitations and accept the responsibilities you have to other people, or you are likely to have continual conflict in your relationships. The roots of your extreme behavior may lie in your relationship with your father or teachers when you were younger. For one reason or another, you may have rejected the paternal image or refused to identify with your father, in the same way you currently refuse to adopt any values related to convention, tradition, or widespread usage. In every important life decision you make as an adult, you are forced to rely on yourself to elaborate the appropriate behavior, and the limits you must impose on your desires in relation to reality and the law.
J. Mascis is aware of the void and the vanity of existence. Sometimes, he is disoriented and deconstructed by an unknowable, unconscious force, and he tends to ignore or disparage the superficial pleasures and pains of daily life. He prefers to dive into the depths of human experience as deeply as his intellectual, emotional, and spiritual capacities permit. Grappling with his “fundamental nature,” with the deepest and most primitive part of himself, he 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 he 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 him at the outset. It is not easy for him to recognize himself in any social or narcissistic models or identify with any existing roles or attitudes, so he sometimes finds himself forced to construct and assert his own identity on a basis which may impress others with its intensity, if not its eccentricity.
J. Mascis is a sensitive and gentle person. He is sociable and devoted to others. His mother or a mother-figure had a strong influence on his psyche, and his childhood was an important time in his life. He still identifies with vivid childhood memories; they are the basis for his reveries, for his extreme sensitivity, and for habits which he may be slow to break. However, he will thrive in the shelter of a family setting, soothed by the presence of a spouse and children. He is fond of security and routine; being somewhat impressionable and anxious, he may have trouble adjusting to situations which are unfamiliar.
J. Mascis has a sensitive personality. He may jump to conclusions, which could disrupt relationships, as well as career plans. He is subject to cyclical energy flows and goes from periods of feverish activity to periods of withdrawal and introspection. The aggressive element in his behavior may be explained by emotional problems he may have experienced in infancy: his mother, or a mother figure, may have had an energetic and volatile personality.
J. Mascis is a person who hides their sensitivity behind a cool, aloof exterior. They are conservative, respectful of tradition and convention, and like to follow the rules. Because they need stability to alleviate their feelings of frustration and sometimes emotional dependency, they have great faith in contracts which seal relationships. Their ties to their past are fairly strong. They are a source of reassurance and safety, because their parents likely gave a lot to them.
J. Mascis was born with a sensitive and imaginative mind, which sometimes made it difficult for him to differentiate between dreams and reality. Although his imagination can be an abundant source of inspiration for creative or spiritual evolution, it often fails him when it comes to matters of practicality and financial stability in the real world. With regard to relationships, J. Mascis is extremely romantic and often sees others in a way that is not entirely accurate. His tastes in art and beauty are elegant, and beauty is one of his chief pleasures in life.
J. Mascis is looking for the ideal love and tends to idealize his friends and lovers. A bizarre character, he may prefer to dream of his soulmate instead of making love to one; he is more in love with the idea of love than anything else. His idealism may hide a fear of truly committing himself to a relationship; he tries to intellectualize everything. In time, two options will seem clear to him: an amorous friendship based on shared ideas and intellectual exchange, or an open relationship, free of all constraints except mutual respect.
J. Mascis’ birth chart indicates that he has an emotional function that 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.
According to the foregoing, it appears that you are somewhat split between the various tendencies in your character. There is a conflict between freedom and attachment, between your ambitions and your need for security, and between your natural self-focus and your altruism. As a result, your mood may be somewhat whimsical and wayward; your youth was almost certainly wayward. Once you settle down, you will develop a great love for your family, especially for your children, if you choose to have them. You will be tolerant, easygoing, and appreciate being able to express your individuality in a long-term commitment.
J. Mascis is an introverted idealist who hides your vulnerability as much from others as from himself. He tends to be misunderstood unless he chooses a marriage of convenience that promotes the union of two ambitions. He might be better advised to opt for the single life and maintain his freedom and independence. Friendship will satisfy his need for affection and conversation.
J. Mascis is attracted to wide open spaces and distant horizons; as a scholar, he feels an affinity for higher studies such as philosophy or law. However, foreign languages or contacts abroad might also interest him.
J. Mascis expresses their thoughts and ideas in direct, spontaneous outbursts. They are fairly extroverted and eager to discover and understand the outer world. An idealist, they look forward to a bright future but are sometimes subjective and reckless.
