You are an emotional creature. As a result of the preponderance of emotion, sensation, and feeling in your psychological make-up, you have acquired a deep sense of your individuality and uniqueness. You sometimes feel “different” – set apart from others. In order to justify this idea of yourself, you attempt to behave differently, to impress the crowd, and the product of your efforts is usually rather grandiose and exaggerated. It’s a self-perpetuating bind, because your impressive deeds usually earn recognition for you, and reinforce your self-assurance and your certainty that you do indeed stand head and shoulders above the rest. You sometimes make an attempt to bluff and show off with an emotional display. You like to take risks and give people advice. Nevertheless, at the basis of your conduct, there is a feeling of social anxiety, which is probably unconscious or unconfessed. You may fear being absorbed or enslaved by society. The positive side of this unconscious anxiety is that it drives you to create, to counteract the deeply felt effects of time and the masses on your ego. By creating something, you can make your own individual mark on the world; you can organize it to reflect your own image, instead of allowing yourself to be submerged by it. The preceding comments about creating the world in your own image are strong indications that you seek to identify with your superego. The difference between your ideal of yourself and the individual you know yourself to be in truth, measured in terms of your social recognition or the recognition of your creations (children, works of art, etc.), will determine your state of mind. It is therefore important for you to make these images match to a certain extent, to reduce the gap as much as possible. The psychological dynamic described earlier explains many of the pluses and minuses in your personality. Your dignity and self-assurance may border on vanity; your strong instinct and ambition combined with your somewhat exaggerated individualism incline you to be self-focused. You may be proud, but you are also courageous, determined, and generous. You have the skills of an educator or an artist; moreover, you are mysteriously lucky.
Due to the influence of Sagittarius (the Centaur-Archer) rising, I, like the half-animal, half-human Centaur, have a dual, ambivalent nature, vagrant and capricious. It is natural for me to be simultaneously conventional and rebellious. I can happily submit to society and convention for a time, only to emerge committed to rugged individualism, or vice-versa. My inner attachment to an ideal of liberty and emancipation does not prevent me from adopting a sociable, pleasant attitude at social events. This dichotomy in my personality grants me such useful social skills as adaptability and poise, but inside, I face a quest for my true identity and consciousness. My primary psychological task is to maintain the harmony reigning between the two entities dwelling within me. I must not limit myself to being either one or the other. I will achieve true psychic and existential stability by personifying a blend of these two behavioral tendencies. When I am comfortable with my individuality, I can radiate optimism and energy; flexible and elastic, I will delight in any change or unpredictability, without losing sight of my long-term purposes. Eminently social, I will express my true nature by becoming deeply involved with groups and taking on duties and responsibilities as a member. I will enjoy my ability to infuse them with my idealistic enthusiasm and visions for the future. My special gifts for dealing with energy make me apt to occupy a position of great social responsibility.

Born three and a half to seven days after the rising of the new moon, Maru Botana is said to be a “soli-lunar” lunar type, indicating that she may need to make an effort to free herself from the past. Something related to her childhood, parents, or ancestors is holding her back, impairing her effectiveness and could stand to be overcome. Due to her past, Maru Botana refuses tried-and-true models, is always fighting to justify her innovative viewpoints, and tends to break away from tradition. She is hardly ever aware that she is making career and lifestyle choices which are based on an urge to modify her relationship to society, and the rigid standards and models from the past.
