Jed Elliott experiences their inner life as a process of growth and maturation, nurtured by their involvement with others and the positive and negative encounters this generates.
Because Jed Elliott is a social being oriented toward other people, his personal interests often mingle with those of his associates or those of the group to which he belongs. Jed is motivated by a need to work in common with other people and to share life’s pleasures and pain. His commitments to other people are of paramount importance to his personal development. This dependence may present difficulties with individual self-assertion and make it hard for him to make decisions alone. If Jed wants to achieve inner equilibrium, he must behave in such a way that his actions yield benefits to others as well as himself.
Jed Elliott demonstrates great interest in the outside world, social affairs, and anything else that contributes to the growth and development of society as a whole. Clubs, organizations, and other forms of partnership attract Jed’s attention and motivate Jed’s behavior. Jed tries to protect Jed from Jed’s subjectivity by adopting an impersonal approach to life. Devoted to the common cause, Jed’s destiny is no longer Jed’s alone. It is almost entirely controlled by the people whose cause Jed has espoused.
Sentimental and emotional, Jed Elliott lives in a world which is in continual contact with his dreams and subconscious. He cannot live without love, and, like water which flows into and takes on the shape of the vessel which contains it, he is always ready to submerge himself in another person. Stirred by forces he does not control, he may be aroused by passions which are impervious to the restraints of reason and logic. He is an emotive creature in harmony with the flow of his feelings, impulses, and urges.
The numerous contradictions and tensions which are a recurrent feature of Jed Elliott’s astral theme balance each other out and endow him with a stable, well-tempered character. Indeed, they are especially likely to protect him from unsolvable frustrations and, in terms of reality, will enable him to acquire a certain social and professional success without too much effort on his part. At that point, he must be careful not to take on too many responsibilities. His confidence in his ability to accomplish things may make him spread himself too thin.
