Paul Dempsey has a personality that is mind-oriented. He understands and relates to the world around him via the medium of thought and intellect. Memorization, comparison, analysis, and the verbalization of his mental imagery are his favorite activities. He seeks to extend his personality by a mental outreach to a multitude of new ideas and factors, becoming acquainted with an ever-increasing variety of facets of human nature. Thus, language and symbolic expression, written or oral, are his primary resources in life, although they are also potential pitfalls. His eloquence, wit, and verve, his mastery of language, unquestionably give his power over other people (via communication) and things (science and technique). But taken to extremes, this faculty may lead to incoherency.
It is thus vital for him to find an outlet for his flow of verbal expression, he must explain, communicate, and speak. If it is dammed up, he will undoubtedly suffer. His flow of words is the expression of his vital energy, the proof that he is alive and well. If he is forced to be silent, he would be cut off from the bonds that hold him together. A kind of duality or split personality might emerge… remember Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde? “They” were a classic case. For all of the above reasons, he is naturally gregarious and sociable.
He makes friends quickly and easily. His contacts and networks are important to him, because they enable him to evolve. They are a source of self-fulfillment and identification. Any form of play is also important to him, and only severe depression will deprive him of his playfulness. He sometimes amuse himself by acting out a variety of roles on the stage of life, just for the fun of it. His animation and wit give him a talent for improvisation and adaptation. However, adaptability is a two-bladed sword. He is liable to find himself in a superficial bind, having jettisoned certain important ideas in order to move about more freely. He is also sensitive, but his emotions and feelings are sometimes subject to the scrutiny and censorship of his intellect. Thus, he cannot free himself to the strength of great passions and energies without idealizing them to a certain degree and giving them intellectual resonance. Wary of his irrational instincts and urges, he tends to control or repress them.
But he will do well to learn that the intellect is not omnipotent, especially where instinct is concerned. Inhabiting a
Paul Dempsey has a high ideal of himself, a vibrant self-image. He has a taste for luxury and enjoys showing off in society. Dynamic and resourceful, he is gifted with a great deal of energy and enterprise and can usually complete the projects he really cares about. Although others enjoy his magnetism and generosity, they might not appreciate his aggressiveness. Endowed with ambition and generosity, he enjoys leadership roles as opportunities to display his righteousness and the nobility of his ideals. The truth is, due to deep-rooted insecurities, he might be driven to seek the approval and confirmation of his personal worth in the eyes of those around him. Time, maturity, and experience (the school of hard knocks!) will structure his personality and restore his confidence in his true purpose in life. He will do well to learn that the only true source of self-esteem lies in his real creations and accomplishments.

Paul Dempsey was born on the three days prior to the new moon's appearance. This soli-lunar configuration gives him a spiritualistic character closely attached to generous humanitarian ideals. Sometimes sorely tried to limit himself to the narrow scope of individual ambition, he aims for a humanitarian ideal which would include the outcasts and the unfortunate. Fervently hoping the meek will inherit the earth, he is likely to seize every resource placed at his disposal: physical effort, money (if he has it), speech, his writings, and his poetic or artistic talents. However, he should be wary of his unconscious guilt feelings. Actually, there is no reason for him to devote himself to his mission entirely; a simple daily effort should suffice to express his philosophy and free his conscience.
