What does Jack Avery’s psychology tell us about them?

Consciousness and The Ideal of Self:

Jack Avery is patient. Jack Avery is fond of routine, ritual, and any other events or ceremonies which mark the passage of time and the seasons. Jack Avery tries to be as pragmatic as possible and unconsciously senses that Jack Avery’s relationship with material things will be the best foundation for Jack Avery’s self-development and individuation. As a result, Jack Avery is attached to Jack Avery’s possessions and will make every effort to cling to them.

Jack Avery has an inalienable awareness of the void and the vanity of existence. Jack 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 Jack’s intellectual, emotional, and spiritual capacities permit. Grappling with Jack’s “fundamental nature,” with the deepest and most primitive part of Jack, Jack is sometimes aghast at the discovery of the sheer power of Jack’s instincts and feels an imperious need to cope with them. This special consciousness Jack 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 Jack at the outset. It is not easy for Jack to recognize Jack in any social or narcissistic models, or identify with any existing roles or attitudes, so Jack sometimes finds Jack forced to assert and express Jack’s own identity in a way which may strike Jack’s contemporaries as strangely intense if not eccentric.

Adaptation and Sensitivity:

Freedom and independence are primary values for Jack Avery. 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.

Jack Avery maintains strong ties with his past, and it often seems difficult for him to open his heart to new people. His love affairs might exist on the surface level, because his lust and sensual desire rarely turn into a need to understand, protect, and care for the other. Moreover, it is difficult for him to meet partners who combine the ideals of the tender parent and the great lover.

Although Jack’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. Jack has spells of melancholy in which he does not feel worthy of being loved and tends to forbid himself emotional fulfillment. An austere or somewhat traumatic childhood experience may be the source of this behavior. It is difficult for Jack’s 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 Jack 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 Jack is now an adult. It should be easy for Jack to rid himself of these phantoms through self-work. He has the ability to overcome his mistakes and great endurance and will power to achieve his goals. Nevertheless, Jack must not repress his sensitivity in order to succeed.

Behind a façade of fairly engaging idealism and a nearly palpable spirit of brotherhood and friendship, Jack Avery hides a fear of emotional commitment. The truth is, Jack 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 Jack to know and love himself better.

Jack is emotional and tends to react suddenly and excessively as soon as his sensitivity is touched. Although he feels that his independence, freedom, and self-sufficiency are fundamental values, he is sometimes frustrated by his need to rely on his family or friends. Moreover, he does not always grant the freedom of other people the same respect as his own. Likewise, he is sometimes angered by expressions of maternal tenderness, as if he feared that it would doom him to eternal dependency. His ambivalent behavior, full of jagged edges, may be traced back to the relationship he had with his mother or a mother figure. Although he was dependent on them, they may have rejected him. Now this attitude is extended to any situation in which his sensitivity comes into play and emotional bonds are liable to form. To ward off his feelings of dependency, he tends to become destructive. Based on denial, his reactions are sometimes fierce, impulsive, and excessive, erratic, or contradictory.

Love and Sensuality:

Jack has fairly lofty amorous aspirations. The soulmate Jack imagines for himself is brilliant and dazzling with an array of talents and beauty. However, the gap between Jack’s splendid ideal and reality is sometimes wide. Jack should be careful not to confuse his romantic ideal with reality and become aware that Jack’s tendency to project may be a way of fleeing from himself.

Jack’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.

With both dependent and independent tendencies, Jack is torn between a strong thirst for liberty and a penchant to be somewhat submissive. Although this inner contradiction tinges Jack’s personality with an odd and captivating charm, it is also the source of ambivalent behavior and many of Jack’s disappointments in love. Jack will have to find a viable solution to his contradictory desires, because otherwise, he will be subject to baffling and dangerous infatuations which will leave him full of regrets and recrimination when the enchantment fades.

Attractive and brilliant, Jack Avery is very skilled in the art of relationships and attracts both social success and admirers. His need to be loved and admired may cause him to fall for flattery from a mediocre potential partner. He will only find happiness with a person who shares his tastes and who is willing to support him in his quest for social fulfillment.

Mental and Intellect:

Powerfully ruled by my determination and vital needs, my intellectual abilities come to the forefront when my purpose is to communicate my ideal and plot my action or strategy. I can be both logical and astute and have gifts for theorizing but may sometimes lack perspective.

He tries to shun subjectivity and be as objective as possible. His thoughts are usually structured, and his reasoning, based on objective facts or experience, usually relates to practical goals.

Jack sometimes makes mistakes in judgment, and his understanding of things is not always in tune with social realities or prevailing opinion. His judgments tend to be hasty; his decisions are reckless. Moreover, he tends to overestimate his abilities and usually aim higher than might be realistic. Once an enterprise or project is underway, he may try to avoid obstacles by dodging certain duties.

Because his vision of the world differs somewhat from social realities, he should be extremely careful and scrupulous in regard to legal matters, in order to avoid any complications of that type. He is sometimes slightly dishonest in his relations; he may break promises or attempt to duck responsibility.

However, he should realize that such conduct toward other people is also a form of unconscious self-loathing. If he continues to behave in such a way, he is exposing himself to the same lack of sincerity from his partners.

Jack Avery has a great deal of intuition but sometimes has problems organizing his thought processes and making an intellectual commitment. The concepts of boundary and structure are inimical to his mind, which is open and all-encompassing, premonitory, and web-like. His thoughts may be verbally indeterminate, vague, and ill defined. He tends to understand or sense things globally, without always noticing their component parts. Usually, he can’t see the trees for the forest.

In daily life, although his perceptions are lively and subtle, he may display a kind of absent-mindedness out of a fear of annoying people with his shrewdness or of fighting to assert himself. His imagination sometimes escapes from the confines of logic, cringing from a confrontation with reality. This unwillingness to face the real world may cause relationship or career challenges.
