Jamie Briggs has written a book about consciousness and the ideal of self.
Jamie Briggs has a confidence in himself sometimes falters, and he might try to compensate for this weakness by insisting on his authority over others. With the people he is emotionally committed to, the same nagging feelings of insecurity prevent him from expressing his generosity and love fully; his extreme independence sometimes hides an inability to abandon himself and a lack of assurance.
Jamie Briggs has a personality and behavior 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 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, also grates on his nerves. He finds it dissatisfying and irritating at the same time.
Jamie Briggs has a taste for luxury and magnificence, for a dazzling social life and a distinguished career. When things are going well for him, he tends to think of himself as the center of the universe, an attitude which those close to him do not always appreciate. Although he is quite likely to succeed in his ambition to become wealthy and popular and lead a remarkable life in the outer world, his lack of moderation and overweening self-confidence exposes him to some danger. His exaggerated optimism could create difficulties by causing him to make errors in judgment.
Jamie Briggs has an extremely sensitive and receptive nature, and tends to live in osmosis with his surroundings. His individuality almost seems to be diluted in a flood of sensations and impressions which are continually washing over him, and he sometimes finds it difficult to communicate his feelings to other people or engage in any structured, analytical thought. This may stem from a misunderstanding with his teachers when he was a child. Unable to understand their disciplinary measures or authority, he may have withdrawn into himself in self-defense. It was then that he constructed his rich inner life, the part of him they could not invade, and cut many of his ties to the outside.
Because he enjoyed indulging in his inner life, it may have been difficult for him to acquire an objective vision of reality. As a result, even today, he tends to create imaginary problems for himself, regardless of the objective facts outside. Although his imagination is a source of inspiration and intuition, his fluid inner structure and organization sometimes make it difficult for him to grasp the essence of his dreams and share them with other people. He is not at all combative, and this tends to hinder his efforts to fit into society and assert himself productively.
You are likely to prefer fantasy to reality, but your refusal to abandon your unattainable dreams is a psychological trap you have fallen into without realizing it. You must understand that by running away from your obligations and commitments, you only increase the feelings of guilt and incompetence which made reality so distasteful in the first place. Once you free yourself from this pernicious process, you have a great deal of potential for fulfilling yourself in the outer world, either by devoting yourself to some sort of social work or by cultivating your considerable artistic talents.
Jamie Briggs generally tends to be motivated by activities which apply to social needs. She tends to give the best of herself in difficult situations which require crucial choices. Her ability to concentrate and her gift for solving problems by deductive reasoning are her chief resources in crisis situations or at turning points in her life.
Jamie Briggs has adapted and become sensitive to different situations.
Jamie Briggs is hypersensitive, extremely receptive to the mood in her surroundings. She is unconsciously able to perceive the parapsychic signals or aura people give off, in addition to their words. As a result, she is extremely compassionate and ready to devote herself to their well-being. Her imagination has formulated the dream of an ideal life, and she sometimes feels ill-equipped for the realities of this existence. She tends to dodge difficult situations. With her partner, she seeks fusion.
Jamie Briggs has a love and sensuality that is both deeply emotional and intense.
Jamie Briggs has a sensual and affectionate nature which is sensitive to physical attraction. This type of sensitivity, combined with her productive urges, may be expressed in an artistic form. As for her feelings, they are usually slow to take root. But once she is conquered by love, she forms a deep and lasting bond. Although she is loyal, she may also display a tendency to be somewhat possessive.
Jamie Briggs has a birth chart indicating an emotional function which is expressed in a direct and fairly impulsive way. He enjoys reaching out to other people and making discoveries. An eternal teenager with his gaze riveted on the future, he is imbued with an eminently subjective and personal idealism.
Jamie has an extremely intuitive nature, and his seeming sixth sense makes him acutely sensitive to everything. He is emotional and impressionable. He identifies with and reflects the person he loves. Unable to distinguish between illusion and reality, he is liable to suffer from disillusionment. Several bonds or marriages are likely to be necessary before he learns how to be happy in a relationship.
Jamie Briggs is a sensual person. She enjoys comfort, in emotional as well as material terms. She appreciates solidity and security. She is extremely attached to her “belongings,” which is how she thinks of her lover, home, and, if she chooses to have them, children. Somewhat awkward and shy with some, she may be dazzled by physical beauty. However, once she has chosen her life partner, she will prove to be an extremely loyal mate.
Jamie Briggs has the fiery, importunate nature of a fervent lover. Indeed, affairs of the heart are one of his main purposes in life. His personal charm and magnetism give him nearly irresistible powers of seduction, and nearly every one of his well-aimed attempts at conquest leads to the fulfillment and satisfaction of his desires. Due to his impulsiveness and impatience to initiate new encounters, his approach to members of the other sex may sometimes lack delicacy.
Jamie Briggs has an ardent and amorous character, and her relationships are enlivened by intensity and passion. A charmer perpetually engaged in a quest for the ideal love, she is often more in love with the idea of love than with a partner. As a result, her love life may be subject to some instability. She is generally attracted to original people who defy norms, standards, and classifications, and expect them to amaze and fascinate her. Her greatest contradictions surface when an intimate relationship is established. Although she merges her ego entirely into the couple, she is likely to demand a total autonomy and liberty which are inimical to intimacy. If her partner charms and captivates her long enough, there is some possibility that they will form a more solid bond with her; otherwise, she is likely to yield to her need for novelty and fall under the spell of an entirely different person who exerts a new kind of charm for her.
Midlife may be a turning point for her from this point of view. Her contradictory attitude may in some ways hide a compulsion to reject and deny the bonds of dependency inherent to a love relationship. Her behavior enables her to remain aloof, to commit herself only halfway without consciously admitting it to herself, and to avoid feeling guilty if and when she loses interest. An insatiable appetite for novelty and exaltation sometimes keeps her from forming stable relationships.
Indeed, she is tormented by the struggle between her undeniable need for affection and an equally imperious desire for personal progress and emancipation. As a result of this inner turmoil, her romantic aspirations are usually sabotaged sooner or later by her conviction that her partner has become an obstacle to her individual progress. Because she thinks of love as a restraint, she may even eventually consciously refuse any emotional approach to love interests. As an ascetic, she will try to deflect the love function from its natural target and use the energy and bliss it generates for other purposes, the process psychologists call sublimation. However, she is also likely to meet “the one” who inspires her to initiate a change in her behavior.
Jamie Briggs has a strong mental and intellect.
Jamie Briggs has a somewhat plodding but realistic and pragmatic approach to life. Because he is chiefly preoccupied with the practical aspects of things, he is especially apt to develop more efficient production concepts. Although his good judgment and common sense provide him with an excellent ability to handle the tangible world, his thought processes might be relatively impervious to abstract concepts and spiritual awakenings.
