Consciousness and The Ideal of Self:
North West senses that they have instincts which may be dangerous, and they try to restrain and control them. As a result, North West may adopt a fairly ascetic lifestyle. North West’s attitude, which denies the vital importance of the most archaic and darkest forces within them, is not entirely innocuous. If North West hopes for a more harmonious development, they will do well to realize that instincts can be tamed; they do not react positively to being trampled.
North West has a paternal complex and, as a result, some trouble finding their identity. Perhaps their father or a father figure was absent physically or emotionally during their childhood, which deprived them of the patterns or models which are usually helpful in structuring a personality. Because they 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, they were forced to protect themselves against negative influences and find their own system in order to grow and feel secure.
Although this system was quite useful to them as a child, it has now settled in to such a degree that it interferes with their evolution. Psychological defense mechanisms and crutches which were once useful now encumber their mind or inhibit their developmental efforts. As a result, in certain situations, it is difficult for them to assert themselves, and they tend to remain an awkward or passive observer. Because their authoritarian urges are mainly directed at themselves rather than others, they sometimes feel guilty about their behavior. They judge themselves severely, and sometimes punishes themselves by setting difficult tasks for themselves. Gradually, they should build up a strong inner discipline and acquire the strength to face the problems of existence in a detached and mature way.
Your personality and behavior are liable to be disrupted by a contradiction between the masculine and feminine archetypes ruling your psyche. Because your sensitivity is in conflict with your determination, your attitude and performance may be moody, fluctuating, and uncertain. Usually, you have the feeling you have to make superhuman efforts to succeed in assuaging your yearnings and fulfilling your ambitions. Your 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, also grates on your nerves. You find it dissatisfying and irritating at the same time.
North West has a taste for luxury and magnificence, for a dazzling social life and a distinguished career. When things are going well for North West, North West tends to think of North West as the center of the universe, an attitude which those close to North West do not always appreciate. Although North West is quite likely to succeed in North West’s ambition to become wealthy and popular and lead a remarkable life in the outer world, North West’s lack of moderation and overweening self-confidence expose North West to some danger. North West’s exaggerated optimism could create difficulties by causing North West to make errors in judgment.
Adaptation and Sensitivity:
Because North West is fond of method and order, North West usually prefers to do things according to a pre-established plan. North West’s behavior mirrors this tendency. North West will adopt relatively strict models elaborated on the basis of logical or moral reasons. North West does not readily express North West’s personal feelings or emotions and may sometimes strike others as a rigid person. However, North West’s conscientiousness and application make North West thrive in a work environment, and North West tends to treat social engagements and activities as a form of duty. North West’s natural taste for clarity, detail, and technique would make North West successful as a scientific researcher or high-tech designer.
North West has a lively and curious intelligence, the very opposite of empty rhetoric and studiousness. North West is agile and adaptable and can not only analyze difficult situations objectively but also demonstrate a profound comprehension when faced with a psychological problem.
North West has a sensitive and affectionate nature. North West seeks tenderness and gentleness more than passion. North West’s relationships with others are smooth and pleasant, and North West has a natural sense of tact and social grace.
North West has a sensitive personality. North may jump to conclusions, which could disrupt relationships, as well as career plans. North is subject to cyclical energy flows and goes from periods of feverish activity to periods of withdrawal and introspection. The aggressive element in North’s behavior may be explained by emotional problems North may have experienced in infancy: North’s mother, or a mother figure, may have had an energetic and volatile personality.
North West does not always readily reveal themselves, and they tend to protect their sensitivity. They have a penchant for intense emotions. Sexuality is a prominent element in their life, and their relationships, which are usually passionate, are motivated by their desires. They like to understand the hidden side of people, their secret or unconfessed motivations. They would thus find a career which placed them in contact with troubled people especially rewarding.
Love and Sensuality:
I have a romantic nature and am seeking a soulmate. The world of my emotions is warm and inviting, the expression of true kindness. Tenderness, grace, and mildness rule my sensitivity, which is aroused by contact with nature and thrills to the idea of a secure, stable home.
North West’s birth chart indicates an emotional function which is usually expressed carefully and reasonably. Distrustful of North West’s emotional urges and somewhat wary of North West’s feelings, North West tries to rid North West of all partiality and try to get some perspective and distance before making an emotional commitment.
As a result of this conflict between the conscious, active, masculine principle of North West’s psyche and the unconscious, passive, feminine principle, North West is continually subject to nervous tension, which wears North West out and exhausts North West. North West’s mind and body are always feverishly active. North West always tends to do too much, to become obsessed with insignificant details, or to panic when faced with the unexpected. North West is likely to marry a partner younger than North West is, either chronologically or in terms of their sense of duty. But perhaps North West’s second marriage will be more reasonable and satisfying.
As a happy-go-lucky wanderer, North West often sees the grass as being greener elsewhere, including in terms of relationships. North West will no doubt end up marrying the person who is most devoted. Tender and faithful, this person will leave North West free to live as they wish, while protecting them or lovingly raising their children.
North West has an ardent and amorous character, and their relationships are enlivened by intensity and passion. A charmer perpetually engaged in a quest for the ideal love, North West is often more in love with the idea of love than with a partner. As a result, their love life may be subject to some instability. North West is generally attracted to original people who defy norms, standards, and classifications, and expect them to amaze and fascinate them. Their greatest contradictions surface when an intimate relationship is established. Although North West merges their ego entirely into the couple, they are likely to demand a total autonomy and liberty which are inimical to intimacy. If their partner charms and captivates North West long enough, there is some possibility that they will form a more solid bond with them; otherwise, North West is likely to yield to their need for novelty and fall under the spell of an entirely different person who exerts a new kind of charm for them.
Midlife may be a turning point for North West from this point of view. Their contradictory attitude may in some ways hide a compulsion to reject and deny the bonds of dependency inherent to a love relationship. Their behavior enables them to remain aloof, to commit themselves only halfway without consciously admitting it to themselves, and to avoid feeling guilty if and when they lose interest. An insatiable appetite for novelty and exaltation sometimes keeps North West from forming stable relationships.
Indeed, North West is tormented by the struggle between their undeniable need for affection and an equally imperious desire for personal progress and emancipation. As a result of this inner turmoil, their romantic aspirations are usually sabotaged sooner or later by their conviction that their partner has become an obstacle to their individual progress. Because North West thinks of love as a restraint, they may even eventually consciously refuse any emotional approach to love interests. As an ascetic, North West 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, North West is also likely to meet “the one” who inspires them to initiate a change in their behavior.
From the outside, North West 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:
North West’s intellect, which is simultaneously subjective and sensitive, acute and intuitive, always practical and deeply rooted in human experience, predisposes North West to a people-oriented activity. With North West’s memory and imagination combined with North West’s shrewdness, North West would be a gifted project manager, businesswoman, or scholar of history or literature.
North West tries to shun subjectivity and be as objective as possible. Their thoughts are usually structured, and their reasoning, based on objective facts or experience, usually relates to practical goals.
In relations with other people, North West’s behavior is usually kind and benevolent. They exert a certain charm, know how to speak persuasively and convincingly, and are adept at smoothing the asperities of what they have to say when it is necessary. This aspect of their personality is a great advantage to them socially; however, in situations where they must either compete or deal with direct conflict and hostility, they may be somewhat at a loss for how to behave.
North West 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 they would excel.
