Consciousness and The Ideal of Self:
Nash Grier is determined to obtain a superlative grip on his emotional urges; he practices holding back his impulses and controlling them. Although it is not an easy apprenticeship, he wants to be able to bear strain with patience, endurance, and stamina. More than anyone else, he is aware of the need for a solid and stable foundation as a prerequisite to any effective action.
Nash Grier is sober and rather reserved and may even strike people as harsh and austere at times. Perhaps Nash was raised in an atmosphere of rigor and sobriety, and, as a result, grew up very fast. Nash has acquired a spirit of self-sufficiency, tends to be rather uncompromising, and has a touchy sense of his personal dignity and worth. It is almost as though Nash were fighting an inner battle with his father or a father figure. The psychological models Nash received from his father or a father figure as a result of his interaction and his own interaction with authority may not have played a major role in shaping his relationships with the outer world and society. Nash may thus have been forced to compensate for this lack with individual determination.
As a result, although Nash is skillful, meticulous, conscientious, and efficient, a lack of self-confidence and personal assurance sometimes makes Nash timid and hesitant. Nash sometimes feels as though Nash is only masquerading as a respectable, sober adult. Nash tends to be far too critical of himself and rarely feels satisfied that Nash is living up to his ideal. These unnecessary guilt feelings may lead Nash to turn down the prominent career positions for which Nash is fully qualified. Nash is aware that early success is often short-lived and fragile and that time rewards those who know how to be patient and persistent, like Nash.
Adaptation and Sensitivity:
Physical and mental freedom are vital to Nash Grier. Nash Grier’s youth and home may have been of the rootless, wandering type, which could have given Nash Grier a taste for movement and independence. Nash Grier needs to be aware that Nash Grier’s life has a purpose and hunt for it in various belief systems, both traditional and new age. In fact, Nash Grier has an unmistakable gift for philosophy. The faraway appeals to Nash Grier, and travel is likely to be an important aspect of Nash Grier’s life.
Love and Sensuality:
Nash Grier 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.
Nash Grier’s birth chart indicates a somewhat introverted emotional function which is influenced by the cultural values traditional to his family and social class. Because he does not always trust his emotional urges and reactions, he generally prefers to hang back and acquire some perspective before committing himself emotionally.
Nash Grier’s emotional involvement might be the source of some dissatisfaction for him. The usual romantic behavior and the lifestyle values prevailing in this area are not really appropriate for him. As a result, he seeks few intimate emotional relationships or contacts. He tends to stay in the background and fulfill his emotional needs by sublimating. He might not attain full romantic satisfaction until he reaches middle age.
Although Nash is naturally fairly emancipated and relaxed, he is always held back by a network of scruples and obligations. He is likely to commit wisely, rather than for love or out of discouragement. Nevertheless, he will find the atmosphere of the home somewhat constricting and should continue to pursue a career outside in order to relieve the pressure.
An idealistic, outgoing, and fantasy-driven being, Nash Grier is extremely complex when it comes to questions of love. He has an angelic vision of the phenomenon and is seeking magic and enchantment. Although he has a keen understanding of other people, he is tempted to project his aspirations onto a person who does not correspond wholly to his ideal. He is just as likely to find an exceptional or unconventional partner with whom he might share friendship and mutual freedom as to commit himself to a person who turns out to reject all that he stands for. He should thus avoid any temptation to rush into an affair.
Nash Grier 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 members of the other sex may sometimes lack delicacy.
Nash Grier has an ardent and amorous character, and his relationships 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 a partner. 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. His greatest contradictions surface when an intimate relationship is established. Although he merges his ego entirely into the couple, he is likely to demand a total autonomy and liberty which are inimical to intimacy. If his partner charms and captivates him long enough, there is some possibility that they will form a more solid bond with him; otherwise, he is likely to yield to his need for novelty and fall under the spell of an entirely different person who exerts a new kind of charm for him. Midlife may be a turning point for him from this point of view. His contradictory attitude may in some ways hide a compulsion to reject and deny the bonds of dependency inherent to a love relationship. His behavior enables him to remain aloof, to commit himself only halfway without consciously admitting it to himself, and to avoid feeling guilty if and when he lose interest. An insatiable appetite for novelty and exaltation sometimes keeps him from forming stable relationships.
Indeed, he is tormented by the struggle between his undeniable need for affection and an equally imperious desire for personal progress and emancipation. As a result of this inner turmoil, his romantic aspirations are usually sabotaged sooner or later by his conviction that his partner has become an obstacle to his individual progress. Because he thinks of love as a restraint, he may even eventually consciously refuse any emotional approach to love interests. As an ascetic, he 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, he is also likely to meet “the one” who inspires him to initiate a change in his behavior.
Nash Grier has a romantic imagination, soaring with idealism, dreams, and poetry. Nash is emotive and hypersensitive, making Nash especially vulnerable emotionally, since Nash is sometimes overwhelmed by Nash’s feelings and affects. Although Nash seeks an ideal soulmate, a partner with whom Nash could maintain blissful, smooth relations, Nash is sometimes met with disillusionment. Because Nash’s rather excessive sensitivity and Nash’s need to merge with the other are deep and powerful enough, they can submerge Nash’s judgment and discernment, so Nash sometimes forms extremely intense bonds too quickly with individuals who are not appropriate partners in many ways. When Nash meets someone, Nash falls under the enchantment of Nash’s dream of ideal love and cannot keep Nash from delighting in a reverie of future romance, placing the other on a pedestal. Early on in the relationship, Nash yields to another of Nash’s characteristic urges and loses Nash in the individual who is so dear to Nash, melding with them, only to awaken one morning and find Nash as if in the arms of a stranger, greatly astounded and disappointed. Actually, Nash’s psyche is constructed in such a way as to make Nash’s sensitivity a function of the environment, in many cases; it follows the flow of momentary emotions and impressions. Before Nash takes on any major commitments, Nash should make a conscious effort to evaluate the relationship realistically, and see whether the person really reciprocates Nash’s intense love, for Nash may merely be in love with the mirage of an ideal partner. Nash’s tendency to believe in Nash’s illusions may mark Nash as an easy prey for people with bad intentions. It would be a good idea for Nash to find a different object for Nash’s affections, or a form of sublimation, because Nash tends to be so disappointed by Nash’s great emotional investments. The delicacy and subtlety of Nash’s imagination procure artistic refinement for Nash, and Nash loves the arts, music, and literature, which could all be good sources of emotional involvement and fulfillment. Because Nash’s sensitivity also makes it easy for Nash to empathize with the psychological or social difficulties Nash’s peers are struggling with, Nash might also find it rewarding to commit Nash to social work.
