Jacques Torres is a person who is oriented towards the mind. He understands and relates to the world around him through thought and intellect. He enjoys memorization, comparison, analysis, and verbalizing his mental imagery. He seeks to extend his personality by a mental outreach to a multitude of new ideas and factors, becoming acquainted with an ever-increasing variety of facets of human nature. Thus, language and symbolic expression, written or oral, are his primary resources in life. However, they are also potential pitfalls. His eloquence, wit, and verve, his mastery of language, unquestionably give him power over other people (via communication) and things (science and technique). But taken to extremes, this faculty may lead to incoherency. It is thus vital for him to find an outlet for his flow of verbal expression. He must explain, communicate, and speak. If it is dammed up, he will undoubtedly suffer. His flow of words is the expression of his vital energy, the proof that he is alive and well. If he is forced to be silent, he would be cut off from the bonds that hold him together. A kind of duality or split personality might emerge… remember Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde? “They” were a classic case. For all of the above reasons, Jacques Torres is naturally gregarious and sociable. He makes friends quickly and easily. His contacts and networks are important to him, because they enable him to evolve. They are a source of self-fulfillment and identification. Any form of play is also important to him, and only severe depression will deprive him of his playfulness. He sometimes amuses himself by acting out a variety of roles on the stage of life, just for the fun of it. His animation and wit give him a talent for improvisation and adaptation. However, adaptability is a two-bladed sword. He is liable to find himself in a superficial bind, having jettisoned certain important ideas in order to move about more freely. He is also sensitive, but his emotions and feelings are sometimes subject to the scrutiny and censorship of his intellect. Thus, he cannot free himself to the strength of great passions and energies without idealizing them to a certain degree and giving them intellectual resonance. Wary of his irrational instincts and urges, he tends to control or repress them. But he will do well to learn that the intellect is not omnipotent, especially where instinct is concerned. Inhabiting a complex inner world,
Due to the influence of Virgo rising, your personality is ruled by reason. Your intellectual functions tend to predominate over your emotional or sentimental impulses. Your mind, which is analytical and critical, is naturally questioning and skeptical; you have great faith in rational positivism and strive to be pragmatic. You have a considerable potential for accomplishment. Although others generally appreciate your conscientious, scrupulous conduct, your devotion to others and realism, they might be critical of your meek behavior and tendency to overthink. Indeed, you are so meticulous that you often “cannot see the forest for the trees” and may fret and worry unnecessarily over tiny details. However, with patience, diligence, and a strong work ethic, you can overcome your tendency to suppress your feelings and build a more rewarding life for yourself.

Born on the seventh or eighth day after the New Moon, you are said to be a “Quarter-Lunar” type. This configuration means that your character is strong-willed and sometimes proud, always determined to buck convention and innovate. Monotony is unbearable to you, and you chafe under the yoke of routine. As a result, you often run into trouble with authority figures. When overwhelmed by your conscience, you rave about how destructive it is to long for the past, how ridiculous it is to be old-fashioned, and how obsolete the old values are. Generally speaking, your monthly energy flow peaks around the tenth and a half day after the full moon. You would be wise to schedule intensive work phases at that time, as well as ambitious and demanding projects. At that time, your initiatives will be most successful, especially if you are trying to create something new, original, and cutting-edge!
