Justin Hills 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, Justin 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 Justin’s 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. Justin’s evolution will occur through a series of metamorphoses and rebirths. However, at certain points in his life, despite his caution and clear thinking, Justin finds himself in situations he neither desired nor planned, as a result of explosions and eruptions of the elements fermenting in his psyche. Justin always survives the worst physical, emotional, or intellectual tests, however, fairly unscathed, because of his ability to be reborn and start afresh.
As a partner, Justin might struggle to make compromises. He may appear frosty and distant at times, and he has a taste for challenging, provocative remarks. With himself, as well as with others, Justin is sometimes excessive and complicated. In a discussion, he will express strong, honest opinions. In crisis situations, Justin wishes for his efforts to be noticed. He is obsessed with the problem of death. Justin tends to believe it holds the secret of life – that death can be overcome.
Sometimes Justin’s anxiety about death is expressed as a search for answers – how can one learn to live with death, how can one detach oneself from the past and its flesh-curdlingly morbid realities… Decay, immobility, ultimate delivery – these images, which are all symbolically associated with death, sometimes haunt Justin.
Intellectually, Justin has powerfully developed intellectual faculties which yield the maximum effectiveness for his behavior. Deductive, analytical, prospective, Justin is at once a researcher, a detective, and a scientist. He is fairly introverted, and his discrimination tends to direct him toward the spheres of inner life. Justin is astute at drawing rational parallels between phenomena of different origins. His love life will be subject to desire and passion. But since he is more aroused by ideas and fantasies, Justin may experience lulls in intensity. When he yields to his penchant for emotional upheaval and his desire for coercion and pleasure, Justin may find himself sailing into the teeth of a hurricane-force gale.
Justin Hills is highly aware of psychological, metaphysical, or mystical questions. The future may hold a complete psychological metamorphosis in store for Justin Hills.
Justin Hills derives great rewards from every source of pleasure or creation (physical, artistic, or emotional). Justin Hills has a penchant for speculation.
At the time of Justin Hills’ birth, his rising sign was located in Cancer (the Crab), while the sun was passing through the sign of Scorpio (the Scorpion). Both signs are ruled by the same element, which indicates that his personality is likely to be cohesive. A summary of the various clues mentioned above provide his personality profile. The following key words capture the essence of his character and indicate certain contradictions which may be sources of tension:
Sensitivity – Pugnacity – Imagination – Charisma – Eccentricity – Dignity – Savings and thrift – Shrewdness – Concentration – Obstinacy – Positivism – Premonition – Common sense.
A combination of toughness and sensitivity, straightforward yet secretive, his inner life is intense and sometimes stormy. However, his inner dichotomy reassures him in his determination to succeed and strengthens his courage in overcoming the difficulties he may encounter.
His development will benefit greatly from his ability to build a secure foundation, a shelter where his sensitivity and emotions can be allowed free expression. Otherwise, his anxious side could win out.
Naturally endowed with psychic gifts, he has premonitions which have sharpened his sensitivity to the irrational world. He may be attracted to mysticism and the occult arts. If he works hard to control his imaginative, unconscious side, he should be capable of great progress in most anything he sets his mind to.
Born in the three days prior to the new moon’s appearance, Justin Hills is said to be of the “balsamic moon” type. This soli-lunar configuration gives him a spiritualistic character closely attached to generous humanitarian ideals. He is sometimes sorely tried to limit himself to the narrow scope of individual ambition.
Indeed, he aims for a humanitarian ideal which would include the outcasts and the unfortunate. He fervently hopes the meek will inherit the earth. To bring about this ideal, he is likely to seize every resource placed at his disposal: physical effort, money (if he has it), speech, his writings, and his poetic or artistic talents. However, he should be wary of his unconscious guilt feelings.
Actually, there is no reason for him to devote himself to his mission entirely; a simple daily effort should suffice to express his philosophy and free his conscience. Usually, the three days preceding the new moon will be time in the monthly lunar cycle most favorable to his activities and his general energy level.
