Jay Kristoff has a complex personality. He is astir with contradictory impulses and desires, some of them imperious. Although his rational mind is highly developed and seems to be the source of motivation for his behavior, the most significant realm of his psychology is his subconscious. Therein, a conflict between understanding and feeling is raging, between the psychological functions of thought and sensation (C.G. Jung's terms). Until this conflict subsides, he might feel a sensation of emptiness. He is troubled by and unable to explain this feeling, which leads him to adopt an attitude of doubt and skepticism. This conflict, and its various ramifications, are the main obstacle to his individuation. His task consists of becoming the master of the energies of his subconscious, and developing his consciousness in terms of the hidden and invisible. His evolution will occur through a series of metamorphoses and rebirths. However, at certain points in his life, despite his caution and clear thinking, he finds himself in situations he neither desired nor planned, as a result of explosions and eruptions of the elements fermenting in his psyche. He always survives the worst physical, emotional, or intellectual tests, however, fairly unscathed, because of his ability to be reborn and start afresh.
Jay Kristoff thrives on relating to other people. He cannot live without love!
Jay Kristoff tends to live in an imaginary world; the distant and abstract sometimes interests him more than what is right at hand and realistic.
Jay Kristoff has a good balance between his need for movement and his tendency to be sedentary. He is just as likely to adapt to situations which require outbursts of initiative as to those which demand patience and perseverance.
Jay Kristoff was born on the three and one-half days after the full moon rose. This “soli-lunar” configuration gives him an objective, rational, and lucid character. However, since the moon is opposite the sun at the time of the full moon, his objective tendencies are balanced by a more idealistic penchant. Because the forces pull him in two different ways – one toward dreams, the other toward reality – he may be aware of some inner contradictions which are causing practical and social difficulties for him. At times, he is too demanding of himself or others, comparing them to an ideal, whereas at others, he is too nonchalant and indulgent about life. He vacillates between two poles. One is elitist; the other is more earthy and perhaps vulgar at times. The result is a multifaceted self. Generally speaking, his monthly energy flow is strongest at the time of the full moon. He would be wise to schedule intensive work phases at that time, as well as ambitious and demanding projects.
