Consciousness and The Ideal of Self:
Joshua Weissman seems passive and more or less resigned to his fate, including his insecurity. Actually, Joshua is fairly introverted and withdrawn, trying to make sense out of his inner confusion and fathom his inner depths.
At the moment of Joshua Weissman’s birth, the two celestial “lights” (the sun and the moon) were symmetrically aligned. This is a portent of harmony between the masculine and feminine archetypes which is extremely beneficial. It is the source of balance and understanding between the two main psychological realms which may be said to compose the personality. Joshua thus enjoys a positive complementarity and understanding between the conscious and unconscious aspects of his psyche, between his determination and his routines, between his drive for self-assertion and his receptivity, his ideal and his sensitivity.
Joshua’s parents almost certainly reflected a positive image of the marriage relationship to him, and it is likely that they encouraged him to develop his own individuality. As a result, Joshua was and is able to be comfortable with himself as he is instead of striving to attain his parents’ ideal. This has definitely contributed to the maintenance of a good relationship with them and the rest of the family.
In Joshua’s emotional relationships with his peers, one of the effects of the masculine/feminine harmony is that the images his ego projects on the other are especially constructive. The bonds of the relationship are not felt to be constraints, the energy which flows between the two people is a source of mutual happiness, not regret. No major personal conflicts are projected onto the “other” – that is, the significant other.
Joshua Weissman’s character is fairly strong-willed, and he is mindful of going about his purposes with maximum efficiency. When he relates to other people, he sometimes has trouble expressing his emotions, but he does have a lively sensitivity and is capable of lasting passion. As he grows older, he is quite likely to come into his own and acquire great intellectual and spiritual wisdom. His honesty, integrity, and sense of duty will win him recognition and appreciation. Passing time will be a very important factor in his destiny, and his greatest accomplishments will guarantee him stability and prosperity. Although he is not especially enterprising, he will move into a high career position as soon as he feel sure of his abilities.
Joshua Weissman is extremely sensitive and receptive 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 often finds it difficult to communicate his feelings to other people. This tide of emotion is a source of inspiration and intuition, but due to his lack of inner structure and organization, it is difficult for him to grasp the essence of his dreams and share them with other people. He is not at all combative, and this hinders his efforts to fit into society and assert himself productively. His tendency to prefer fantasy to reality and his refusal to abandon his unattainable dreams is a psychological trap he has fallen into without realizing it.
Joshua Weissman must understand that by escaping from his obligations and commitments, he only increases the feelings of guilt and incompetence which made reality so distasteful in the first place. Once he frees himself from this pernicious process, he has a great deal of potential for fulfilling himself in the outer world, either by devoting himself to the community or by cultivating his considerable artistic talents.
Adaptation and Sensitivity:
Because Joshua Weissman is fond of method and order, he usually prefers to do things according to a pre-established plan. His behavior mirrors this tendency. He will adopt relatively strict models elaborated on the basis of logical or moral reasons. He does not readily express his personal feelings or emotions and may sometimes strike others as a rigid person. However, his conscientiousness and application make him thrive in a work environment, and he tends to treat social engagements and activities as a form of duty. His natural taste for clarity, detail, and technique would make him successful as a scientific researcher or high-tech designer.
Joshua Weissman’s intellect is lively, agile, and sensitive. However, he does not always avail himself of it and may be confused or irrational in some situations. Although he enjoys playing with words, ideas, and concepts, his thought sometimes lacks discipline and structure. He is fairly preoccupied with details and may tend to waste his nervous and mental energy in futile verbal outpourings. Moreover, his feelings sometimes blur his objective vision of phenomena and people, which may cause him to make errors in judgment.
Optimistic and happy to be alive, Joshua Weissman is a cheerful, expansive, pleasant associate to have. Joshua is extremely generous (sometimes to a fault!) and gives of himself and his belongings unstintingly. This positive psychological outlook is the result of a happy childhood and especially an extremely beneficial maternal influence in infancy. Joshua is quite likely to be a professional success; his vision of the world is perfectly adapted to prevailing opinion, and his urges and desires for personal expansion usually elicit a positive reaction from society. By old age, Joshua’s good reputation and prominence may have earned him fame.
Joshua Weissman’s sensitivity and emotions are sometimes in conflict with his instincts. This inner discord makes Joshua Weissman a fairly complicated relationship partner, and Joshua Weissman’s behavior sometimes strikes others as mysterious or baffling. Joshua Weissman is liable to switch from one attitude to the opposite. Sexuality is an important part of Joshua Weissman’s life, and Joshua Weissman’s relationships are most often motivated by Joshua Weissman’s desires. Nevertheless, due to Joshua Weissman’s unconscious inner battle, Joshua Weissman does not often succeed in reconciling and fulfilling Joshua Weissman’s emotional and sexual needs. Due to the strength of Joshua Weissman’s instincts, passion may overwhelm Joshua Weissman and drag Joshua Weissman into situations Joshua Weissman cannot always control, which intermingle erotic ecstasy and anguish, guilt, and aggressiveness.
Love and Sensuality:
Joshua Weissman is looking for the ideal love and tends to idealize his friends and lovers. A bizarre character, Joshua Weissman may prefer to dream of his soulmate instead of making love to one; Joshua Weissman is more in love with the idea of love than anything else.

Joshua Weissman is an idealistic, outgoing, and fantasy-driven being who is extremely complex when it comes to questions of love. Joshua has an angelic vision of the phenomenon and is seeking magic and enchantment. Although Joshua has a keen understanding of other people, Joshua is tempted to project his aspirations onto a person who does not correspond wholly to his ideal. Joshua is just as likely to find an exceptional or unconventional partner with whom Joshua might share friendship and mutual freedom as to commit himself to a person who turns out to reject all that Joshua stands for. Joshua should thus avoid any temptation to rush into an affair.

Joshua Weissman has a lively and agile spirit. He is curious and open-minded, approaching various life experiences without either dogmatism or prejudice. As a result of the liveliness of his mind, he tends to have an opinion on every subject, but he does not always have the patience or perspective necessary to examine a subject and gain in-depth knowledge of it.
Joshua enjoys manipulating expressions and concepts and amuses himself with witty remarks, satire, and controversy. If he learned to control his flow of words better and elaborate his thoughts more, he might make a talented communicator.
Because Joshua is often too hasty to formulate and construct the arguments which would back up and inform his ideas, he is sometimes misunderstood. He is often blind to the rashness of his judgments and convinced they are well-founded and objective, which sometimes irritates the people around him. If Joshua were to succeed in disciplining his mind somewhat, he would have innumerable opportunities to apply his communications skills to a great career. However, he would do well to be careful of his nerves.
Joshua Weissman has a definite taste for expression and communication. Joshua cannot survive without giving voice to Joshua’s thoughts and speaking to other people. Joshua delights in Joshua’s own power to persuade, captivate, and sway an audience with Joshua’s words.
Especially attracted to anything new and original, Joshua immediately grasps the utility and value of the latest technology or philosophy, no matter how complicated it may be, and has a knack for explaining it to the uninitiated and popularizing it. Because Joshua is fairly high strung, Joshua may have trouble concentrating on a single subject for very long, unless it is a source of intellectual fascination or discovery. Joshua may have to make some effort to overcome this inconsistency.
Joshua’s open-mindedness offers Joshua creativity, which is a valuable commodity in many occupations: teaching, communications, advertising, etc. Regardless of the career Joshua chooses, Joshua’s personal development will involve intellectual activity and progress.
