Of a fairly introspective nature, Patrick Simmons is attentive to his special inner qualities which enable him to perceive the very essence of the people he meets, the situations he encounters, and the objects he sees. He has the ability to understand through his intuition. This faculty is based upon an openness to the other, and thus a certain duality: a budding extroversion, and the predominance of the object over the subject (Patrick Simmons) in his consciousness. As a result, Patrick Simmons has a strong sense of the group and would sacrifice his own ego rather than commit something that is a sin in his eyes, neglecting his social obligations or failing to fulfill his duties to the people he is close to. He can sometimes be perceived by others as unreliable or untrustworthy, due to a sort of opportunism or disloyalty. However, these are superficial characteristics. The real reason for his behavior is psychological and resides in the fact that he is ready to do anything to maintain the harmony of the group (or simply satisfy the expectations of the other). However, Patrick Simmons sometimes lacks self-assertion, and this makes him contradictory and unreliable when he faces certain superficial decisions. Moreover, Patrick Simmons has a chameleon-like ability to blend in with situations and prevailing moods. He is thus quite a success in social settings, and he thrives on friendships, partnerships, networks, and corporate liaisons. His mind is amazingly flexible, arranging harmonious and productive encounters between people and ideas. All of his emotional health is invested in a desire to participate, to mingle, to exchange. Although Patrick Simmons is consciously aware of an ardent desire to be sociable, unconsciously he blames himself for failing to achieve his ideal goal, which always seems to elude him. This is why Patrick Simmons sometimes has phases of discouragement, followed by renewed zeal in his work efforts or group participation. Because Patrick Simmons is always seeking the perfect group, the ideal form of cooperation, he sometimes despair of ever attaining it. He has a natural tendency to find common ground for people, to reconcile differing opinions and viewpoints, and he is partial to any arrangement which promotes cooperation or fellowship. Because Patrick Simmons is not aggressive by nature, he knows how to make peace; he is a skillful diplomat and go-between. As a corollary to his opening to society, Patrick Simmons is closely related to his environment. The society in which he moves contributes in large part to the formation of his character and attitude. Through social contacts and friendships,
Patrick Simmons was born with a dual nature – he is both conventional and rebellious. He can happily submit to society and convention for a time, only to emerge committed to rugged individualism, or vice versa. His inner attachment to an ideal of liberty and emancipation does not prevent him from adopting a sociable, pleasant attitude at social events. This dichotomy in his personality grants Patrick such useful social skills as adaptability and poise, but inside, he faces a quest for his true identity and consciousness. His primary psychological task is to maintain the harmony reigning between the two entities dwelling within him. He must not limit himself to being either one or the other. He will achieve true psychic and existential stability by personifying a blend of these two behavioral tendencies. When he is comfortable with his individuality, Patrick can radiate optimism and energy; flexible and elastic, he will delight in any change or unpredictability, without losing sight of his long-term purposes. Eminently social, Patrick will express his true nature by becoming deeply involved with groups and taking on duties and responsibilities as a member. He will enjoy his ability to infuse them with his idealistic enthusiasm and visions for the future.
Patrick Simmons yearns for a purpose in life, even faraway or abstract.
Patrick Simmons has a strong personality; he is sometimes a little self-centered. His fate is in his own hands!
At the time of your birth, your rising sign was located in Sagittarius (the Archer), while the sun was passing through the sign of Libra (the Scales). A summary of the various clues mentioned above provide your personality profile. The following key words capture the essence of your character and indicate certain contradictions which may be sources of tension:
Sociability – Enthusiasm – Adaptability – Group spirit – Emotionality – Impressionability – Tolerance – Analytical mind – Peaceful disposition – Worldly concerns – Sense of harmony – Projection – Worldliness.
Deeply social and liberal-minded, you have a great sense of diplomacy and a gift for reconciling differing viewpoints. Friendly and willing to be of service, you are unable to refuse an appeal for help, and your courtesy can tend toward a certain sentimentalism. As a result, you commit yourself to too many people at the same time, and may sometimes feel spread too thin.
As an artist or student of art, you have a profound sense of beauty (harmony, rhythm, composition, associations and juxtapositions, etc.). You like your independence, but will nevertheless bow to custom and usage in good grace. Your sense of fairness and justice is keen, and you spontaneously take up the cause of the defenseless.
Born on the third day after the full moon rose, you are said to be a “full moon” lunar type. This “soli-lunar” configuration gives you an objective, rational, and lucid character. However, since the moon is opposite the sun at the time of the full moon, your objective tendencies are balanced by a more idealistic penchant. Because the forces pull you in two different ways – one toward dreams, the other toward reality – you may be aware of some inner contradictions which are causing practical and social difficulties for you. At times, you are too demanding of yourself or others, comparing them to an ideal, whereas at others, you are too nonchalant and indulgent about life. You vacillate between two poles. One is elitist; the other is more earthy and perhaps vulgar at times. The result is a multifaceted self. Generally speaking, your monthly energy flow is strongest at the time of the full moon. You would be wise to schedule intensive work phases at that time, as well as ambitious and demanding projects.
