Paul Wesley is a fiery, emotional creature. As a result of the preponderance of emotion, sensation, and feeling in his psychological make-up, he has acquired a deep sense of his individuality and uniqueness. He sometimes feels “different” – set apart from others. In order to justify this idea of himself, he attempts to behave differently, to impress the crowd, and the product of his efforts is usually rather grandiose and exaggerated.
It’s a self-perpetuating bind, because his impressive deeds usually earn recognition for him, and reinforce his self-assurance and his certainty that he does indeed stand head and shoulders above the rest. He sometimes makes an attempt to bluff and show off with an emotional display. He likes to take risks and give people advice. Nevertheless, at the basis of his conduct, there is a feeling of social anxiety, which is probably unconscious or unconfessed. He may fear being absorbed or enslaved by society.
The positive side of this unconscious anxiety is that it drives him to create, to counteract the deeply felt effects of time and the masses on his ego. By creating something, he can make his own individual mark on the world; he can organize it to reflect his own image, instead of allowing himself to be submerged by it. The preceding comments about creating the world in your own image are strong indications that he seeks to identify with his superego. The difference between his ideal of himself and the individual he knows himself to be in truth, measured in terms of his social recognition or the recognition of his creations (children, works of art, etc.), will determine his state of mind. It is therefore important for him to make these images match to a certain extent, to reduce the gap as much as possible.
The psychological dynamic described earlier explains many of the pluses and minuses in his personality. His dignity and self-assurance may border on vanity; his strong instinct and ambition combined with his somewhat exaggerated individualism incline him to be self-focused. He may be proud, but he is also courageous, determined, and generous. He has the skills of an educator or an artist; moreover, he is mysteriously lucky.
Paul Wesley thrives on relating to other people. He cannot live without love!
Paul Wesley tends to live in an imaginary world; the distant and abstract sometimes interest him more than what is right at hand and realistic.

Paul Wesley’s authority and determination often monopolize Paul Wesley’s energy, at the expense of Paul Wesley’s emotions. Or Paul Wesley may find Paul Wesley distracted from pursuing Paul Wesley’s goals by the whisperings of Paul Wesley’s heart. By middle age, however, Paul Wesley should reach a balance which gives liberal expression to all Paul Wesley’s gifts. Control over Paul Wesley’s emotions, pride, and passions should then give Paul Wesley access to the highest realms of self-realization.
Born in the three days after the rising of the new moon, Paul Wesley is said to be a “new moon” lunar type. This “soli-lunar” configuration gives him a subjective character, somewhat impulsive and sometimes emotive. Generally, he does not see the world in objective terms; instead, he bases his attitude on the feelings various situations arouse inside him.
Likewise, in human relationships, he tends to project his imaginary reality onto others instead of seeing them for what they are. As a result, his judgements and reasoning are sometimes deprived of perspective.
He may want to make an effort to refrain from overinterpreting other people’s actions, because, being the product of his imagination in most cases, his interpretations are mistaken. If he applies himself to listening more openly, people may reveal their deeper motivations. He’ll be happier and more effective as a result.
