Consciousness and The Ideal of Self:
Katy Perry senses that she has instincts which may be dangerous, and she tries to restrain and control them. As a result, she may adopt a fairly ascetic lifestyle. Her attitude, which denies the vital importance of the most archaic and darkest forces within her, is not entirely innocuous. If Katy Perry hopes for a more harmonious development, she will do well to realize that instincts can be tamed; they do not react positively to being trampled.
Katy Perry’s complex and sometimes rather extremist personality is rooted in an instinctual drive which dwarfs mere rationalism. Katy Perry finds the dark side of existence alluring and is attracted to mystery and the occult. Katy Perry delightedly immerses herself in the depths of human experience, stretching her intellectual, emotional, and spiritual resources to their maximum.
Adaptation and Sensitivity:
Katy Perry is winning and attractive. Katy Perry has an appetite for intense emotional experiences, especially in terms of relationships. Enjoying the power of personal appeal, Katy Perry easily controls emotions and only rarely reveals the true depth of feelings.
Because instincts take precedence over sensitivity, Katy Perry is capable of becoming jealous, possessive, and even rather harsh, without meaning to. More of a flirt than a voluptuary, Katy Perry is attentive to desire. As a result, love life will sometimes be casual and complicated.
Although Katy Perry’s demeanor is cool and distant, she is extremely sensitive. In some cases, her rather austere and rigid behavior and her refusal to yield too readily to sentimentality discourage others from being too demonstrative of their tenderness and affection. She has spells of melancholy in which she does not feel worthy of being loved and tends to forbid herself emotional fulfillment. An austere or somewhat traumatic childhood experience may be the source of this behavior. She may have suffered rejection in her infancy, and, as a result, lacked the parental love which is essential to the cohesion of a personality and identity. In order to feel secure, and to protect herself from ever suffering rejection or abandonment again, she withdrew into herself and developed her aloofness as a defense mechanism. When she finally lets down her defenses and allows herself to express her feelings, she tends to become impassioned and exalted. She is fairly introverted and egocentric and has a powerful sense of her own identity.
Katy Perry keeps a tight grip on her emotions, has an appetite for intense emotional thrills, is sometimes upset by them, feels insecure, becomes jealous or possessive, has intense emotional drives, is masochistic, and abandons herself to her emotional fears.
Love and Sensuality:
Aware that Katy Perry was taught to experience love in a certain way by her family, social class, or religion, she is determined to experiment with a new style. Her idealistic aspirations may be a form of escapism. They encourage her to cast off conventional romantic practices and customs and embark on new adventures.
Katy Perry’s birth chart indicates an emotional function which is usually expressed carefully and reasonably. Distrustful of her emotional urges and somewhat wary of her feelings, she tries to rid herself of all partiality and try to get some perspective and distance before making an emotional commitment.
Katy Perry is fond of extremes; she needs to possess those she loves entirely. Her love life is usually complicated and pain-stricken; she knows this and tries her best to protect herself. Generally, she falls in love with those who resemble her – saints or sinners, but always passionate.
Katy Perry is attracted to freewheeling, independent partners, but sometimes has trouble adapting to their lifestyle. Her companion may have independent leanings, but life with them will not always be satisfying for her. Perhaps a marriage with a more conventional partner would be more appropriate for her.
Katy Perry has an ardent and amorous character, and her relationships are enlivened by intensity and passion. A charmer perpetually engaged in a quest for the ideal love, she is often more in love with the idea of love than with a partner. As a result, her love life may be subject to some instability. She is generally attracted to original people who defy norms, standards, and classifications, and expects them to amaze and fascinate her. Her greatest contradictions surface when an intimate relationship is established. Although she merges her ego entirely into the couple, she is likely to demand a total autonomy and liberty which are inimical to intimacy. If her partner charms and captivates her long enough, there is some possibility that they will form a more solid bond with her; otherwise, she is likely to yield to her need for novelty and fall under the spell of an entirely different person who exerts a new kind of charm for her. Midlife may be a turning point for her from this point of view. Her contradictory attitude may in some ways hide a compulsion to reject and deny the bonds of dependency inherent to a love relationship. Her behavior enables her to remain aloof, to commit herself only halfway without consciously admitting it to herself, and to avoid feeling guilty if and when she loses interest. An insatiable appetite for novelty and exaltation sometimes keeps her from forming stable relationships.
Indeed, she is tormented by the struggle between her undeniable need for affection and an equally imperious desire for personal progress and emancipation. As a result of this inner turmoil, her romantic aspirations are usually sabotaged sooner or later by her conviction that her partner has become an obstacle to her individual progress. Because she thinks of love as a restraint, she may even eventually consciously refuse any emotional approach to love interests. As an ascetic, she 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, she is also likely to meet “the one” who inspires her to initiate a change in her behavior.
Mental and Intellect:
Curious, skeptical, and pragmatic, Katy Perry has a shrewd, inquisitorial mind. Katy Perry always tries to detect the hidden mechanisms and processes behind the phenomena Katy Perry observes. As a result, Katy Perry has developed an ability to detect the truth behind appearances and the cause behind the effect. Although this way of thinking is based on a certain logic, and there is evidence of structure and cohesion in Katy Perry’s deductive approach, it is not always purely intellectual. Indeed, its sources lie in a certain empiricism, in facts which have been experienced, so it is open to improvement. For this reason, its fields of application are highly diverse, although research in the hard sciences, psychology, and metaphysics seem to be the best career choices.
Katy Perry tries to shun subjectivity and be as objective as possible. Her thoughts are usually structured, and her reasoning, based on objective facts or experience, usually relates to practical goals.
Katy Perry has a lively and agile spirit. She is curious and open-minded, approaching various life experiences with an attitude free of dogmatism and prejudice. As a result of her great mental vitality, she tends to have an opinion on every subject, but she does not always have the patience necessary to examine a subject in-depth.
She enjoys manipulating expressions and concepts and amusing herself with witty remarks, satire, and controversy. If she learned to control her flow of words and elaborate her thoughts more, she could make a talented communicator. Because she is often too hasty to formulate and construct the arguments which would back up and inform her ideas, she is sometimes misunderstood.
She is often blind to the rashness of her judgments and convinced they are well-founded and objective, which sometimes irritates the people around her. If she were to succeed in disciplining her mind somewhat, she would have innumerable opportunities to apply her communications skills to a great career. However, she would do well to be careful of her nerves.
