Consciousness and The Ideal of Self:
Lexi Rivera is searching for stability; she wants to find a firm, unchanging structure for her life. But her efforts to achieve this ideal are often vain, because unconsciously, she is also inhabited by the opposite desire. Every time she reaches what she believes to be a good balance, she realizes she wants something entirely different. She would do well to become aware that the concepts of stability and balance are difficult to apply to life. By definition, life is movement, change, and perpetual instability.
Lexi has a taste for luxury and magnificence, for a dazzling social life and a distinguished career. When things are going well for her, she tends to think of herself as the center of the universe, an attitude which those close to her do not always appreciate. Although she is quite likely to succeed in her ambition to become wealthy and popular and lead a remarkable life in the outer world, her lack of moderation and overweening self-confidence expose her to some danger. Her exaggerated optimism could create difficulties by causing her to make errors in judgment.
Lexi Rivera is a social butterfly who loves sharing and being in constant contact with others. They tend to be free and uninhibited in their relations with other people, rarely allowing themselves to be influenced by convention or prevailing opinion. This attitude makes their life refreshing and exciting, and they are never bored. In career terms, Lexi is quite gifted for any field related to communication, where their intellectual singularity and lively wit would make them an amazing hit. Lexi would also be likely to succeed in any activity where the work required a multidisciplinary approach: teaching, advertising, politics, etc.
Lexi Rivera has an inalienable awareness of the void and the vanity of existence. They are 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 their intellectual, emotional, and spiritual capacities permit. Grappling with their “fundamental nature,” with the deepest and most primitive part of themselves, they are sometimes aghast at the discovery of the sheer power of their instincts and feels an imperious need to cope with them. This special consciousness they have 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 them at the outset. It is not easy for them to recognize themselves in any social or narcissistic models, or identify with any existing roles or attitudes, so they sometimes find themselves forced to assert and express their own identity in a way which may strike their contemporaries as strangely intense if not eccentric.
Adaptation and Sensitivity:
Usually cool and distant in demeanor, Lexi Rivera represses her feelings and sensitivity and avoids the sort of situation where she 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 her love life, Lexi is capable of plunging all her energy into her work. She seeks social recognition through her career achievements.
Love and Sensuality:
Lexi Rivera has a sensual and affectionate nature which is sensitive to physical attraction. This type of sensitivity, combined with their productive urges, may be expressed in an artistic form. As for their feelings, they are usually slow to take root. But once they are conquered by love, they form a deep and lasting bond. Although they are loyal, they may also display a tendency to be somewhat possessive.
Lexi Rivera’s birth chart indicates an emotional function which is expressed in a direct and fairly impulsive way. She enjoys reaching out to other people and making discoveries. An eternal teenager with her gaze riveted on the future, she is imbued with an eminently subjective and personal idealism.
Shy and unsure of herself, Lexi Rivera is liable to be stuck on the sidelines of life despite her qualities, at least in the first part of her adult life. If she manages to overcome her inhibitions, she could have a brilliant career. Her private life should emerge from its melancholy and relative frigidity, improving with time and giving rise to a deep and enduring commitment. A lively and intelligent person, perhaps younger than her, should be able to draw her out of her shell.
Sensual and alluring, Lexi likes to attract and seduce. In her youth, her admirers were many and varied. However, she longs for stability and will find this with a partner who is socially brilliant but somewhat unconventional.
Lexi Rivera has a romantic imagination, soaring with idealism, dreams, and poetry. She is emotive and hypersensitive, making her especially vulnerable emotionally, since she is sometimes overwhelmed by her feelings and affects. Although she seeks an ideal soulmate, a partner with whom she could maintain blissful, smooth relations, she is sometimes met with disillusionment. Because her rather excessive sensitivity and her need to merge with the other are deep and powerful enough, they can submerge her judgment and discernment, so she sometimes forms extremely intense bonds too quickly with individuals who are not appropriate partners in many ways. When she meets someone, she falls under the enchantment of her dream of ideal love and cannot keep herself from delighting in a reverie of future romance, placing the other on a pedestal. Early on in the relationship, she yields to another of her characteristic urges and loses herself in the individual who is so dear to her, melding with them, only to awaken one morning and find herself as if in the arms of a stranger, greatly astounded and disappointed. Actually, her psyche is constructed in such a way as to make her sensitivity a function of the environment, in many cases; it follows the flow of momentary emotions and impressions. Before she takes on any major commitments, she should make a conscious effort to evaluate the relationship realistically, and see whether the person really reciprocates her intense love, for she may merely be in love with the mirage of an ideal partner. Her tendency to believe in her illusions may mark her as an easy prey for people with bad intentions. It would be a good idea for her to find a different object for her affections, or a form of sublimation, because she tends to be so disappointed by her great emotional investments. The delicacy and subtlety of her imagination procure artistic refinement for her, and she loves the arts, music, and literature, which could all be good sources of emotional involvement and fulfillment. Because her sensitivity also makes it easy for her to empathize with the psychological or social difficulties her peers are struggling with, she might also find it rewarding to commit herself to social work.
Mental and Intellect:
Lexi Rivera has a lively wit which gives her great agility and scope and a broad field of consciousness which enlivens her curiosity and makes her love variety and change. Her mind is alert and her speech is full of verve, humor, and sometimes impudence. These abilities are great resources in communication, discussion, and debate. She is a storehouse of information and ideas of every kind and delights in manipulating words and concepts, discovering new things, and sharpening her memory for trivial facts. This mental agitation could sometimes make her scattered, however, or lacking in coherence and discipline.
Lexi Rivera does not express her thoughts and ideas smoothly or easily. She tends to be subjective, seeking to know herself better through a process of introversion.
Lexi Rivera’s intellectual faculties and wit are sometimes slowed down because they are turned inward. Because Lexi Rivera tends to be oriented toward herself, she rarely tries to communicate with others for the simple pleasure of doing so. Indeed, Lexi Rivera sometimes feels misunderstood. Moreover, it seems difficult to Lexi Rivera to express the complexity of her inner perceptions.
In relations with other people, Lexi Rivera’s behavior is usually kind and benevolent. She exerts a certain charm, knows how to speak persuasively and convincingly, and is adept at smoothing the asperities of what she has to say when it is necessary. This aspect of her personality is a great advantage to her socially; however, in situations where she must either compete or deal with direct conflict and hostility, she may be somewhat at a loss for how to behave.
Lexi has an undeniable gift for oratory which could be applied to a communications-related occupation or to artistic expression (as a stage or screen actor). Writing and dance, two other arts which associate expression and movement, might also be fields in which she would excel.
Lexi has a lively and agile spirit, but tends to apply her mental abilities in a somewhat haphazard and disorderly way. She is curious and open-minded, approaching various life experiences with an attitude free of either dogmatism or prejudice. Her extremely lively mind leads her to have an opinion on every subject.
Although she enjoys manipulating expressions and concepts and amusing others and herself with witty remarks, her conversations could collapse into argument and conflict.
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. Actually, her overriding need to assert herself as an individual sometimes defeats discussion and prevents her from listening to the other person fairly. But if she were to succeed in disciplining her mind somewhat, she would have innumerable opportunities to apply her communications skills to a great career.
Moreover, she should be careful of her 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 her how to relax and improve control of her nervous and mental energies.
Lexi Rivera has a mind with an insatiable appetite for knowledge and an exceptional ability to learn. Without trying too hard, Rivera could probably accumulate encyclopedic erudition. Rivera’s intellectual curiosity is such that it is sometimes a drawback. Rivera sometimes has trouble limiting herself to a single subject without being distracted by a multitude of others. Discipline and a conscious effort at organization will be of great help to Rivera if she wants to deepen her learning and judgment.
Once Rivera’s intellectual faculties are disciplined, she 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.
