Consciousness and The Ideal of Self:
NBA YoungBoy 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.
NBA YoungBoy has a paternal complex and, as a result, some trouble finding his identity. Perhaps his father or a father figure was absent physically or emotionally during his childhood, which deprived him of the patterns or models which are usually helpful in structuring a personality. Because he might have lacked a particular sense of security which could be provided by a paternal presence, as well as the examples of behavior to follow in confronting the difficulties inherent in every life, he was forced to protect himself against negative influences and find his own system in order to grow and feel secure.
Although this system was quite useful to him as a child, it has now settled in to such a degree that it interferes with his evolution. Psychological defense mechanisms and crutches which were once useful now encumber his mind or inhibit his developmental efforts. As a result, in certain situations, it is difficult for him to assert himself, and he tends to remain an awkward or passive observer. Because his authoritarian urges are mainly directed at himself rather than others, he sometimes feels guilty about his behavior. He judges himself severely, and sometimes punishes himself by setting difficult tasks for himself. Gradually, he should build up a strong inner discipline and acquire the strength to face the problems of existence in a detached and mature way.
At the moment of NBA YoungBoy’s birth, the two celestial “lights” (the sun and the moon) were symmetrically aligned. This is a portent of harmony between the masculine and feminine archetypes which is extremely beneficial. It is the source of balance and understanding between the two main psychological realms which may be said to compose the personality. NBA YoungBoy thus enjoys a positive complementarity and understanding between the conscious and unconscious aspects of his psyche, between his determination and his routines, between his drive for self-assertion and his receptivity, his ideal and his sensitivity.
NBA YoungBoy’s parents almost certainly reflected a positive image of the marriage relationship to him, and it is likely that they encouraged him to develop his own individuality. As a result, he was and is able to be comfortable with himself as he is instead of striving to attain his parents’ ideal. This has definitely contributed to the maintenance of a good relationship with them and the rest of the family.
In NBA YoungBoy’s emotional relationships with his peers, one of the effects of the masculine/feminine harmony is that the images his ego projects on the other are especially constructive. The bonds of the relationship are not felt to be constraints, the energy which flows between the two people is a source of mutual happiness, not regret. No major personal conflicts are projected onto the “other” – that is, the significant other.
You do not always feel in tune with society’s rules and conventions. The mask of sociability most well-adapted people wear is difficult for NBA YoungBoy to assume, and it is hard for him to act out the roles expected of him as a normal member of the community. The usual social values and rewards, like money, respect, and prestige, only mildly interest him. His refusal or inability to play the social game may make it hard for him to find a job, which may have negative consequences on his financial and legal status. Reluctant and unwilling to adapt to the demands of social life, he sometimes unwittingly makes mistakes when a new project is in the planning stages. For example, he may leave gaps in a job application, botch up an interview with a prospective employer, or make a big mistake when bidding for a contract. But his financial difficulties may clear up when his emotional ones do.
NBA YoungBoy is extremely sensitive and receptive and tends to live in osmosis with his surroundings. His individuality almost seems to be diluted in a flood of sensations and impressions which are continually washing over him, and he sometimes finds it difficult to communicate his feelings to other people. This tide of emotion is a source of inspiration and intuition, but his fluid inner structure and organization sometimes make it difficult for him to grasp the essence of his dreams and share them with other people. He is not at all combative, and this tends to hinder his efforts to fit into society and assert himself productively.
He is likely to prefer fantasy to reality, but his refusal to abandon his unattainable dreams is a psychological trap he has fallen into without realizing it. He must understand that by running away from his obligations and commitments, he only increases the feelings of guilt which made reality so distasteful in the first place. Once he frees himself from this pernicious process, he has a great deal of potential for fulfilling himself in the outer world, either by devoting himself to some sort of social work or by cultivating his considerable artistic talents.
Adaptation and Sensitivity:
Hypersensitive, NBA YoungBoy is extremely receptive to the mood in his surroundings. He is unconsciously able to perceive the parapsychic signals or aura people give off, in addition to their words. As a result, he is extremely compassionate and ready to devote himself to their well-being. His imagination has formulated the dream of an ideal life, and he sometimes feels ill-equipped for the realities of this existence. He tends to dodge difficult situations. With his partner, he seeks fusion.
YoungBoy 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.
His sensitivity and emotions are sometimes in conflict with his instincts. This inner discord makes him a fairly complicated relationship partner, and his behavior sometimes strikes others as mysterious or baffling. He is liable to switch from one attitude to the opposite. Sexuality is an important part of his life, and his relationships are most often motivated by his desires. Nevertheless, due to his unconscious inner battle, he does not often succeed in reconciling and fulfilling his emotional and sexual needs. Due to the strength of his instincts, passion may overwhelm him and drag him into situations he cannot always control, which intermingle erotic ecstasy and anguish, guilt, and aggressiveness.
Love and Sensuality:
In affairs of the heart, NBA YoungBoy is fairly shy, reserved, and discreet. Even in intimacy, he remains modest and does not always readily express his feelings. He’s sensitive and giving, wishing to be of service to those he loves. He would do well to trust that he deserves to be made as happy as he makes his partner.
YoungBoy’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.
Full of kindness and innocence, NBA YoungBoy would like to please everyone. He is a devoted companion and a marvelous hostess whose pleasure consists in making everyone around him happy. However, he may easily allow himself to be exploited or confuse love and pity. He should not always believe everything he hears and will have to use more common sense before he commits himself.
Repressing his emotions and equally unconcerned by the frivolous business of sexuality, NBA YoungBoy gets his kicks from debate and in the satisfaction of a job well done. Like his house, his relationship will be extremely well organized. No pointless bickering or small talk. He’ll prioritize sharing social success in his partnership.
Cautious and reserved, NBA YoungBoy is sometimes unwilling to open himself to others if he is not sure of being accepted. He will always hang back somewhat from his emotional urges, parceling out his expressions of affection, because he has learned – sometimes at his expense – that even the most harmonious relationships require some compromise. For him, “good fences make good neighbors,” and well-marked boundaries can prevent future suffering. Thus, even when he is in love, he remains fairly circumspect. When he finds himself attracted to a partner, he privately engages in a careful analysis of their personality and life story, endeavoring to know them profoundly, to see whether he is likely to be able to share his life and future with them. As a result of his sensitivity, he has a profound affinity for all of the arts. Music, literature, painting, and graphic arts are likely to enrich his existence and make it pleasant. He could progress in any career in which balance, order, and practicality predominate.
You have an ardent and amorous character, and your relationships are enlivened by intensity and passion. A charmer perpetually engaged in a quest for the ideal love, you are often more in love with the idea of love than with a partner. As a result, your love life may be subject to some instability. You are generally attracted to original people who defy norms, standards, and classifications, and expect them to amaze and fascinate you. Your greatest contradictions surface when an intimate relationship is established. Although you merge your ego entirely into the couple, you are likely to demand a total autonomy and liberty which are inimical to intimacy. If your partner charms and captivates you long enough, there is some possibility that they will form a more solid bond with you; otherwise, you are likely to yield to your need for novelty and fall under the spell of an entirely different person who exerts a new kind of charm for you. Midlife may be a turning point for you from this point of view. Your contradictory attitude may in some ways hide a compulsion to reject and deny the bonds of dependency inherent to a love relationship. Your behavior enables you to remain aloof, to commit yourself only halfway without consciously admitting it to yourself, and to avoid feeling guilty if and when you lose interest. An insatiable appetite for novelty and exaltation sometimes keeps you from forming stable relationships.
Indeed, you are tormented by the struggle between your undeniable need for affection and an equally imperious desire for personal progress and emancipation. As a result of this inner turmoil, your romantic aspirations are usually sabotaged sooner or later by your conviction that your partner has become an obstacle to your individual progress. Because you think of love as a restraint, you may even eventually consciously refuse any emotional approach to love interests. As an ascetic, you 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, you are also likely to meet “the one” who inspires you to initiate a change in your behavior.
From the outside, NBA YoungBoy seems to be detached and aloof, but on the inside he is an extremely complex individual, full of contradictions. Because he sometimes feels vulnerable emotionally, he tries to control not only his own feelings and urges, but may also strive to manipulate those of his partners. He aspires to a profound and enduring spiritual unity, but at the same time, the idea of abandoning himself and yielding to the other terrifies him. This anguish may be a source of rather extreme behavior patterns and a somewhat self-focused attitude which could damage the relationship. Because he is guarded and somewhat secretive, he tends to be suspicious and is especially uneasy about spontaneous intimacy, although he is fascinated by sexuality. Within the privacy of the couple, he will not express his feelings unless he is 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 his emotional and sexual functioning. As a result, he is likely to be attracted by stormy and complicated relationships.
Mental and Intellect:
Curious, skeptical, and pragmatic, NBA YoungBoy has a shrewd, inquisitorial mind. He always tries to detect the hidden mechanisms and processes behind the phenomena he observes. As a result, he has developed an ability to detect the truth behind appearances and the cause behind the effect. Although this way of thinking is based on a certain logic, and there is evidence of structure and cohesion in his deductive approach, it is not always purely intellectual. Indeed, its sources lie in a certain empiricism, in facts which have been experienced, so it is open to improvement. For this reason, its fields of application are highly diverse, although research in the hard sciences, psychology, and metaphysics seem to be the best career choices.
