Consciousness and The Ideal of Self:
Merrick Hanna is trying to overcome his feelings of insecurity. To do so, he needs a home: a dwelling, a territory, or perhaps a safe space or setting where he can rest, and let down his systems of defense against the outer world, which he finds aggressive and hostile. He is ready to make some sacrifices in order to maintain and consolidate the structure he has chosen. True inner security, based on real knowledge of himself, his abilities, and his shortcomings, his strengths and his weaknesses would no doubt be most effective and would allow him to remain open to the varieties of experience offered by the world.
Merrick Hanna’s personality and behavior are liable to be disrupted by a contradiction between the masculine and feminine archetypes ruling your psyche. Because Merrick Hanna’s sensitivity is in conflict with your determination, your attitude and performance may sometimes be moody, fluctuating, and uncertain. Usually, Merrick Hanna has the feeling you have to make superhuman efforts to succeed in assuaging your yearnings and fulfilling your ambitions. Merrick Hanna’s unconscious, sensitive side often disapproves of your conscious endeavors and stealthily works to defeat them, causing crucial omissions, mistakes, and gaps which effectively sabotage your plans. In your relationships, the images you build up and projects on the other are contradictory. As a result, any bond, even if it is pleasant and positive, might also annoy you. You could find it dissatisfying and irritating at the same time.
Merrick Hanna is affectionate by nature, and love plays a decisive and central role in their life. They are a charmer who needs to love and be loved. Aware of their personal magnetism and the power it gives them, they will make subtle changes in themselves in order to attract positive attention. They are sophisticated and pleased to savor a lifestyle they see as a consummate art.
Merrick Hanna has great strength of character. His courage and endurance enable him to accomplish even extremely arduous tasks. Although he sometimes behaves impulsively, he generally knows how to plan out an effective strategy, and, as a result, he reaches his goals without meeting any major obstacles. His forcefulness gives him certain leadership skills, which he may implement to creative and constructive ends.
Merrick Hanna 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 the life instinct and feels an imperious need to cope with it.
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 construct and assert their own identity on a basis which may impress others with its intensity, if not its eccentricity.
Adaptation and Sensitivity:
Because Merrick Hanna is fond of method and order, he usually prefers to do things according to a pre-established plan. His behavior mirrors this tendency. He will adopt relatively strict models elaborated on the basis of logical or moral reasons. He does not readily express his personal feelings or emotions and may sometimes strike others as a rigid person. However, his conscientiousness and application make him thrive in a work environment, and he tends to treat social engagements and activities as a form of duty. His natural taste for clarity, detail, and technique would make him successful as a scientific researcher or high-tech designer.
Merrick Hanna maintains strong ties with their past, and it often seems difficult for them to open their heart to new people. Their love affairs might exist on the surface level, because their lust and sensual desire rarely turn into a need to understand, protect, and care for the other. Moreover, it is difficult for them to meet partners who combine the ideals of the tender parent and the great lover.
Merrick Hanna has a sensitive personality. They may jump to conclusions, which could disrupt relationships, as well as career plans. They are subject to cyclical energy flows and go from periods of feverish activity to periods of withdrawal and introspection. The aggressive element in their behavior may be explained by emotional problems they may have experienced in infancy: their mother, or a mother figure, may have had an energetic and volatile personality.
Merrick Hanna is emotional and tends to react suddenly and excessively as soon as their sensitivity is touched. Although they feel that their independence, freedom, and self-sufficiency are fundamental values, they are sometimes frustrated by their need to rely on their family or friends. Moreover, they do not always grant the freedom of other people the same respect as their own. Likewise, they are sometimes angered by expressions of maternal tenderness, as if they feared that it would doom them to eternal dependency. Their ambivalent behavior, full of jagged edges, may be traced back to the relationship they had with their mother or a mother figure. Although they were dependent on them, they may have rejected you. Now this attitude is extended to any situation in which their sensitivity comes into play and emotional bonds are liable to form. To ward off their feelings of dependency, they sometimes tend to become destructive. Based on denial, their reactions might be fierce, impulsive, excessive, erratic, or contradictory.
Merrick Hanna does not always readily reveal himself, and he tends to protect his sensitivity. He has a penchant for intense emotions. Sexuality is a prominent element in his life, and his relationships, which are usually passionate, are motivated by his desires. He likes to understand the hidden side of people, their secret or unconfessed motivations. He would thus find a career which placed him in contact with troubled people especially rewarding.
Love and Sensuality:
Merrick Hanna’s personality is dominated by love and affectivity. They are subject to love at first sight, and their gallant heart sometimes leaps forth impulsively; their sensitivity is lively and powerful. Amorous rivalries and conquests may be a recurring theme throughout their life.
Merrick Hanna’s birth chart indicates an emotional function which is expressed in a direct and fairly impulsive way. They enjoy reaching out to other people and making discoveries. An eternal teenager with their gaze riveted on the future, they are imbued with an eminently subjective and personal idealism.
Somewhat frustrated by nature, with an innate tendency to be dissatisfied with everything (to put it mildly), Merrick Hanna is determined to subject his sentimental and sexual urges to the control of his mind. If he is happy with the companion he has chosen, he will turn out to be an excellent partner, devoted to his flock.
Passionate and idealistic, Merrick Hanna has little desire to live out relationships according to society’s rules and customs. They are also attracted to people with original or eccentric personalities – artists, intellectuals, adventurers: all promising a relationship that is far from banal. However, Hanna will prove better at friendship than at sensuality which could quickly tire them.
Merrick Hanna has the fiery, importunate nature of a fervent lover. Indeed, affairs of the heart are one of his main purposes in life. His personal charm and magnetism give him nearly irresistible powers of seduction, and nearly every one of his well-aimed attempts at conquest leads to the fulfillment and satisfaction of his desires. Due to his impulsiveness and impatience to initiate new encounters, his approach to potential partners may sometimes lack delicacy.
From the outside, Merrick Hanna seems to be detached and aloof, but on the inside they are an extremely complex individual, full of contradictions. Because they sometimes feel vulnerable emotionally, they try to control not only their own feelings and urges, but may also strive to manipulate those of their partners. They aspire to a profound and enduring spiritual unity, but at the same time, the idea of abandoning themselves and yielding to the other terrifies them. This anguish may be a source of rather extreme behavior patterns and a somewhat self-focused attitude which could damage the relationship. Because they are guarded and somewhat secretive, they tend to be suspicious and are especially uneasy about spontaneous intimacy, although they are fascinated by sexuality. Within the privacy of the couple, they will not express their feelings unless they are subject to some tension. Life may be peppered with frequent crises and feuds, arguments and spats which usually act as erotic provocation. This derivation of eroticism from anxiety tends to be one of the fundamental characteristics of their emotional and sexual functioning. As a result, they are likely to be attracted by stormy and complicated relationships.
Mental and Intellect:
Merrick Hanna is an intuitive thinker. They do not reason things out through a long, articulate, logical discourse; instead, they seize the visions or insights that spontaneously flash into their consciousness. They thus have 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 Merrick Hanna is an extrovert, they will possess an inventive, innovative spirit gifted for improvisation. If they are an introvert, their mind will be an abundant source of personal inner truths.
Merrick Hanna does not express his thoughts and ideas smoothly or easily. He tends to be subjective, seeking to know himself better through a process of introversion.

Indeed, Merrick Hanna sometimes feels misunderstood. Moreover, it seems difficult to Merrick Hanna to express the complexity of his inner perceptions.
