Leon Walker discusses consciousness and the ideal of self in his latest book.
Leon Walker is patient. He is fond of routine, ritual, and any other events or ceremonies which mark the passage of time and the seasons. He tries to be as pragmatic as possible and unconsciously senses that his relationship with material things will be the best foundation for his self-development and individuation. As a result, he is attached to his possessions and will make every effort to cling to them.
Leon Walker has an immense need to assert his individuality. His attitudes and actions are actually motivated by an unconscious desire for power. They puzzle the people close to him, who cannot understand whether his behavior is the result of pure selfishness or merely of an excess of energy. Leon Walker is lively, alert, and determined, but he is too easily distracted from goals by futile competition or opportunities to exhibit his power. He has a short temper and must learn to control his impulsiveness, which might expose him to a great deal of unnecessary conflict.
Leon Walker has an inalienable awareness of the void and the vanity of existence. He is sometimes disoriented and deconstructed by an unknowable, unconscious force and tend to ignore or disparage the superficial pleasures and pains of daily life, preferring to dive into the depths of human experience as deeply as his intellectual, emotional, and spiritual capacities permit. Grappling with his “fundamental nature,” with the deepest and most primitive part of himself, he is sometimes aghast at the discovery of the sheer power of his instincts and feels an imperious need to cope with them. This special consciousness he has been endowed with is somewhat beyond the bounds of conventional schools of human understanding and thought and may be a source of identity problems for him at the outset. It is not easy for him to recognize himself in any social or narcissistic models, or identify with any existing roles or attitudes, so he sometimes finds himself forced to assert and express his own identity in a way which may strike his contemporaries as strangely intense if not eccentric.
Leon Walker has adapted to situations well, displaying sensitivity and a good balance between need for movement and tendency to be sedentary.
Leon Walker is winning and attractive. He has an appetite for intense emotional experiences, especially in terms of his relationships. Enjoying the power of his personal appeal, he easily controls his emotions and only rarely reveals the true depth of his feelings.
Because his instincts take precedence over his sensitivity, he is capable of becoming jealous, possessive, and even rather harsh, without meaning to. More of a flirt than a voluptuary, he is attentive to desire. As a result, his love life will sometimes be casual and complicated.
Leon Walker 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.
Leon Walker believes that love and sensuality should be celebrated and indulged in without guilt or shame. He believes that they are one of the most powerful forces in the world and should be used to enrich both the individual and the relationship.
Leon Walker is looking for the ideal love and tends to idealize his friends and lovers. A bizarre character, he may prefer to dream of his soulmate instead of making love to one; he is more in love with the idea of love than anything else. His idealism may hide a fear of truly committing himself to a relationship; he tries to intellectualize everything. In time, two options will seem clear to him: an amorous friendship based on shared ideas and intellectual exchange, or an open relationship, free of all constraints except mutual respect.
Leon Walker'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.
Leon Walker finds attractiveness a little naughty. He may be so overcome by his lustful urges that he loses all sense of proportion. A passionate creature, he will lead a tormented love life. After a few failures, he should find the right match – someone tolerant who understands him and helps him rise above his instincts.
Leon Walker is an introverted idealist who hides his vulnerability as much from himself as from others. Unless he chooses a marriage of convenience that promotes the union of two ambitions, he might be better advised to opt for the single life and maintain his freedom and independence. Friendship will satisfy his need for affection and conversation.
Leon Walker has a good balance between his need for movement and his tendency to be sedentary. He is just as likely to adapt to situations which require outbursts of initiative as to those which demand patience and perseverance.
Leon Walker has an ardent and amorous character, and his relationships with the other sex 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 his partners. 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. Love is often a matter of luck with him. Even when a relationship falls apart, he does not see the experience as a failure or a tragedy; instead, he seems to learn valuable lessons from his mistakes. Psychologically, his emotion contributes positively and efficiently to his evolution. From another standpoint, his acute sensitivity predisposes him to original and subtle tastes; he is so receptive to beauty and attached to the concepts of truth and balance that they may all combine to yield remarkable creative potential.
Leon Walker has a strong mental and intellect.
Leon Walker has an intuitive thinker. He does not reason things out through a long, articulate, logical discourse; instead, he seize the visions or insights that spontaneously flash into his consciousness. He thus has a form of immediate knowledge of various phenomena which is based neither on reasoning nor on any elaborate thought process or method. As a result, if he is an extrovert, he will possess an inventive, innovative spirit gifted for improvisation. If he is an introvert, his mind will be an abundant source of personal inner truths.
Leon Walker expresses his thoughts and ideas in direct, spontaneous outbursts. He is fairly extroverted and eager to discover and understand the outer world. An idealist, he looks forward to a bright future but is sometimes subjective and reckless.
Leon Walker has a lively and agile spirit, but he tends to apply his mental abilities in a somewhat haphazard and disorderly way. He is curious and open-minded, approaching various life experiences with an attitude free of either dogmatism or prejudice. His extremely lively mind leads him to have an opinion on every subject. Although he enjoys manipulating expressions and concepts and amuses others and himself with witty remarks, his conversations could collapse into argument and conflict. Because he 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. Actually, his overriding need to assert himself as an individual sometimes defeats discussion and prevents him from listening to the other person fairly. But if he were to succeed in disciplining his mind somewhat, he would have innumerable opportunities to apply his communications skills to a great career. Moreover, he should be careful of his nerves, which are fairly high-strung. Any physical fitness activity would be beneficial; an Eastern discipline such as yoga or Tai-chi-chuan could teach him how to relax and improve control of his nervous and mental energies.
Leon Walker has a mind with an insatiable appetite for knowledge and an exceptional ability to learn. He without trying too hard, could probably accumulate encyclopedic erudition. His intellectual curiosity is such that it is sometimes a drawback. He sometimes has trouble limiting himself to a single subject without being distracted by a multitude of others.
Discipline and a conscious effort at organization will be of great help if he wants to deepen his learning and judgment. Once his intellectual faculties are disciplined, he is likely to succeed in any of the following fields: teaching, historical scholarship, advertising, writing (journalistic or literary), travel, etc: – in fact, communication in any form.
Leon Walker has a great deal of intuition but sometimes has problems organizing his thought processes and making an intellectual commitment. The concepts of boundary and structure are inimical to his mind, which is open and all-encompassing, premonitory, and web-like. His thoughts may be verbally indeterminate, vague, and ill defined. He tends to understand or sense things globally, without always noticing their component parts. Usually, he can't see the trees for the forest.
In daily life, although his perceptions are lively and subtle, he may display a kind of absent-mindedness, out of a fear of annoying people with his shrewdness or of fighting to assert himself. His imagination sometimes escapes from the confines of logic, cringing from a confrontation with reality. This unwillingness to face the real world may cause relationship or career challenges.
