Jim Jefferies has written a book about consciousness and the ideal of self.
Jim Jefferies 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.
Jim Jefferies has a paternal complex and, as a result, some trouble finding his identity. Perhaps his father or a father figure was absent physically or emotionally during his childhood, which deprived him of the patterns or models which are usually helpful in structuring a personality. Because he might have lacked a particular sense of security which could be provided by a paternal presence, as well as the examples of behavior to follow in confronting the difficulties inherent in every life, he was forced to protect himself against negative influences and find his own system in order to grow and feel secure.
Although this system was quite useful to him as a child, it has now settled in to such a degree that it interferes with his evolution. Psychological defense mechanisms and crutches which were once useful now encumber his mind or inhibit his developmental efforts. As a result, in certain situations, it is difficult for him to assert himself, and he tends to remain an awkward or passive observer. Because his authoritarian urges are mainly directed at himself rather than others, he sometimes feels guilty about his behavior. He judges himself severely, and sometimes punishes himself by setting difficult tasks for himself. Gradually, he should build up a strong inner discipline and acquire the strength to face the problems of existence in a detached and mature way.
Jim Jefferies 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 that 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 for him by causing him to make errors in judgment.
Adaptation and Sensitivity:
There is a good balance between your need for movement and your tendency to be sedentary. You are just as likely to adapt to situations which require outbursts of initiative as to those which demand patience and perseverance.
Jim Jefferies usually cool and distant in demeanor, but he represses his feelings and sensitivity and avoids the sort of situation where he might be forced to express them. This inhibition is related to a feeling of not having been loved enough. In many cases, to the detriment of his love life, he is capable of plunging all his energy into his work. He seeks social recognition through his career achievements.
Jim Jefferies 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.
Jim Jefferies has written extensively about the power of love and sensuality. He believes that these two elements are essential to a fulfilling and fulfilling relationship.
Jim Jefferies' personality is dominated by love and affectivity. He is subject to love at first sight, and his gallant heart sometimes leaps forth impulsively; his sensitivity is lively and powerful. Amorous rivalries and conquests may be a recurring theme throughout his life.
Jim's birth chart indicates 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.
Jim Jefferies is fairly independent, having trouble finding emotional fulfillment. His youthful idealism subsided into disillusionment which has taught him to shield his sensitivity by being critical or ironic. Because his fear being overwhelmed by his feelings and do not readily yield to love, he prefers friendship. His ideal partner would be original, tender, and reassuring, apt to instill cheerfulness in his relationship, and bright enough to stimulate him intellectually. Were he to marry too young or too soon, he might find himself trapped in a stultifying situation.
Jim Jefferies is passionate and idealistic, having little desire to live out his relationships according to society's rules and customs. He is also attracted to people with original or eccentric personalities – artists, intellectuals, adventurers: all promising a relationship that is far from banal. However, he will prove better at friendship than at sensuality which could quickly tire him.
Jim Jefferies has a cautious and reserved nature. He is sometimes unwilling to open himself to others if he is not sure of being accepted. He will always hang back somewhat from his emotional urges, parceling out his expressions of affection, because he has learned – sometimes at his expense – that even the most harmonious relationships require some compromise. For Jim, “good fences make good neighbors,” and well-marked boundaries can prevent future suffering. Thus, even when he is in love, he remains fairly circumspect. When he finds himself attracted to a partner, he privately engages in a careful analysis of their personality and life story, endeavoring to know them profoundly, to see whether he is likely to be able to share his life and future with them. As a result of his sensitivity, Jim has a profound affinity for all of the arts. Music, literature, painting, and graphic arts are likely to enrich his existence and make it pleasant. Jim could progress in any career in which balance, order, and practicality predominate.
Jim Jefferies has an ardent and amorous character, and his relationships are enlivened by intensity and passion. A charmer perpetually engaged in a quest for the ideal love, he is often more in love with the idea of love than with a partner. As a result, his love life may be subject to some instability. He is generally attracted to original people who defy norms, standards, and classifications, and expect them to amaze and fascinate him. His greatest contradictions surface when an intimate relationship is established. Although he merges his ego entirely into the couple, he is likely to demand a total autonomy and liberty which are inimical to intimacy. If his partner charms and captivates him long enough, there is some possibility that they will form a more solid bond with him; otherwise, he is likely to yield to his need for novelty and fall under the spell of an entirely different person who exerts a new kind of charm for him. Midlife may be a turning point for him from this point of view. His contradictory attitude may in some ways hide a compulsion to reject and deny the bonds of dependency inherent to a love relationship. His behavior enables him to remain aloof, to commit himself only halfway without consciously admitting it to himself, and to avoid feeling guilty if and when he loses interest. An insatiable appetite for novelty and exaltation sometimes keeps him from forming stable relationships. Indeed, he is tormented by the struggle between his undeniable need for affection and an equally imperious desire for personal progress and emancipation. As a result of this inner turmoil, his romantic aspirations are usually sabotaged sooner or later by his conviction that his partner has become an obstacle to his individual progress. Because he thinks of love as a restraint, he may even eventually consciously refuse any emotional approach to love interests. As an ascetic, he 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, he is also likely to meet “the one” who inspires him to initiate a change in his behavior.
Jim has a great emotional ideal, full of subtlety and tenderness. However, he tends to be overwhelmed by his imagination and may not be selective enough when choosing a partner. His romantic and trusting nature may make him vulnerable. Although he strives to establish peaceful, uncomplicated relations, he sometimes experiences painful disappointments. His artistic delicacy and refinement provide him with a sincere love of the arts, music, and literature. He is likely to be a gifted poet.
Jim Jefferies has a guarded and somewhat secretive personality. He is suspicious and uneasy about spontaneous intimacy, although he is fascinated by sexuality. Within the privacy of the couple, he will not express his feelings unless he is subject to some tension. Life may be peppered with frequent crises and feuds, arguments and spats which usually act as erotic provocation. This derivation of eroticism from anxiety tends to be one of the fundamental characteristics of his emotional and sexual functioning. As a result, he is likely to be attracted by stormy and complicated relationships.
