Consciousness and The Ideal of Self:
Paul Wesley needs others in order to structure himself. He intuitively senses this need and seeks a balance between his individual ambitions and need to give to others and be loved and recognized in return, although it sometimes eludes him. Marriage and friendship could be realms to which he is especially devoted, but they may also prove to be a source of conflict and disillusion.
Paul Wesley is extremely vigorous and energetic and has an immense need to assert his individuality. His attitudes and actions are actually motivated by an unconscious desire for power. They puzzle the people close to him, who cannot understand whether his behavior is the result of pure selfishness or merely of an excess of energy. He is lively, alert, and determined, but he is too easily distracted from goals by futile competition or opportunities to exhibit his power. He has a short temper and must learn to control his impulsiveness, which might expose him to a great deal of unnecessary conflict.
Paul Wesley has a taste for luxury and magnificence, for a dazzling social life and a distinguished career. When things are going well for Paul, he tends to think of himself as the center of the universe, an attitude that those close to him do not always appreciate. Although Paul is quite likely to succeed in his ambition to become wealthy and popular and lead a remarkable life in the outer world, his lack of moderation and overweening self-confidence expose him to some danger. His exaggerated optimism could create difficulties for him by causing him to make errors in judgment.
Paul Wesley enjoys sharing and has a constant need for contact with other people. He tends to be free and uninhibited in his relations with other people, rarely allowing himself to be influenced by convention or prevailing opinion; he associates with whomever he pleases. This attitude makes his life refreshing and exciting, and he is never bored. In career terms, he is quite gifted for any field related to communication, where his intellectual singularity and lively wit would make him an amazing hit. He would also be likely to succeed in any activity where the work required a multidisciplinary approach: teaching, advertising, politics, etc.
Paul Wesley has an inalienable awareness of the void and the vanity of existence. Paul Wesley is sometimes disoriented and deconstructed by an unknowable, unconscious force and tends to ignore or disparage the superficial pleasures and pains of daily life, preferring to dive into the depths of human experience as deeply as his intellectual, emotional, and spiritual capacities permit. Grappling with his “fundamental nature,” with the deepest and most primitive part of himself, Paul Wesley is sometimes aghast at the discovery of the sheer power of the life instinct and feels an imperious need to cope with it.
This special consciousness Paul Wesley has been endowed with is somewhat beyond the bounds of conventional schools of human understanding and thought and may be a source of identity problems for Paul Wesley at the outset. It is not easy for Paul Wesley to recognize himself in any social or narcissistic models or identify with any existing roles or attitudes, so Paul Wesley sometimes finds himself forced to construct and assert his own identity on a basis which may impress others with its intensity, if not its eccentricity.
Adaptation and Sensitivity:
Because Paul Wesley is fond of method and order, he usually prefers to do things according to a pre-established plan. His behavior mirrors this tendency. He will adopt relatively strict models elaborated on the basis of logical or moral reasons. He does not readily express his personal feelings or emotions and may sometimes strike others as a rigid person. However, his conscientiousness and application make him thrive in a work environment, and he tends to treat social engagements and activities as a form of duty. His natural taste for clarity, detail, and technique would make him successful as a scientific researcher or high-tech designer.
Love and Sensuality:
Paul Wesley has a romantic nature and is seeking a soulmate. The world of his emotions is warm and inviting, the expression of true kindness. Tenderness, grace, and mildness rule his sensitivity, which is aroused by contact with nature and thrills to the idea of a secure, stable home.
Paul Wesley’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.
Paul Wesley is pragmatic and realistic as well as ambitious and wants to get ahead in the world. His partnership could be a means of doing so. Although he has many virtues and carefully attends to his duties, he has an unfortunate tendency to doubt in himself in any matter related to his emotions. It would be regrettable if, after a few failures, he sacrificed his emotional fulfillment on the altar of his ambition and need for normalcy.
Paul Wesley’s spontaneity may be charming, but he is often carried away by his desires, seeing life only through the eyes of his loved one. It all comes tumbling down, along with his dreams… But not for long, as his feelings are constantly resurging (like the tide). When he reaches maturity, he will channel his love and dreams into his family life.
Paul Wesley may be characterized by strong sensual and affectionate urges which drive him to seek pleasure. His need for romantic fulfillment may compel him to marry, because he also seeks the legal and social legitimacy the institution of marriage confers on an emotional bond. Indeed, the household is liable to be prosperous and even opulent, as if this offered further evidence that he had indeed achieved success. However, privately, he might be less committed to certain obligations and duties.
Mental and Intellect:
Paul Wesley’s intellect, which is simultaneously subjective and sensitive, acute and intuitive, always practical and deeply rooted in human experience, predisposes him to a people-oriented activity. With his memory and imagination combined with his shrewdness, he would be a gifted project manager, businesswoman, or scholar of history or literature.
Paul Wesley expresses his thoughts and ideas in direct, spontaneous outbursts. He is fairly extroverted and eager to discover and understand the outer world. An idealist, he looks forward to a bright future but is sometimes subjective and reckless.
Paul Wesley has a lively and agile spirit, but he tends to apply his mental abilities in a somewhat haphazard and disorderly way. He is curious and open-minded, approaching various life experiences with an attitude free of either dogmatism or prejudice. His extremely lively mind leads him to have an opinion on every subject.
Although he enjoys manipulating expressions and concepts and amuses others and himself with witty remarks, his conversations could collapse into argument and conflict.
Because he is often too hasty to formulate and construct the arguments which would back up and inform his ideas, he is sometimes misunderstood. He is often blind to the rashness of his judgments and convinced they are well-founded and objective, which sometimes irritates the people around him. Actually, his overriding need to assert himself as an individual sometimes defeats discussion and prevents him from listening to the other person fairly. But if he were to succeed in disciplining his mind somewhat, he would have innumerable opportunities to apply his communications skills to a great career.
Moreover, he should be careful of his nerves, which are fairly high-strung. Any physical fitness activity would be beneficial; an Eastern discipline such as yoga or Tai-chi-chuan could teach him how to relax and improve control of his nervous and mental energies.
Paul Wesley sometimes makes mistakes in judgment, and his understanding of things is not always in tune with social realities or prevailing opinion. His judgments tend to be hasty; his decisions are reckless. Moreover, he tends to overestimate his abilities and usually aims higher than might be realistic. Once an enterprise or project is underway, he may try to avoid obstacles by dodging certain duties.
Because his vision of the world differs somewhat from social realities, he should be extremely careful and scrupulous in regard to legal matters, in order to avoid any complications of that type. He is sometimes slightly dishonest in his relations; he may break promises or attempt to duck responsibility.
However, he should realize that such conduct toward other people is also a form of unconscious self-loathing. If he continues to behave in such a way, he is exposing himself to the same lack of sincerity from his partners.
Paul Wesley has a definite taste for expression and communication. He cannot survive without giving voice to his thoughts and speaking to other people. He delights in his own power to persuade, captivate, and sway an audience with his words.
Especially attracted to anything new and original, he immediately grasps the utility and value of the latest technology or philosophy, no matter how complicated it may be, and has a knack for explaining it to the uninitiated and popularizing it. Because he is fairly high strung, he may have trouble concentrating on a single subject for very long, unless it is a source of intellectual fascination or discovery. He may have to make some effort to overcome this inconsistency.
His open-mindedness offers him creativity, which is a valuable commodity in many occupations: teaching, communications, advertising, etc. Regardless of the career he chooses, his personal development will involve intellectual activity and progress.
