Paul has a complex personality. He is astir with contradictory impulses and desires, some of them imperious. Although his rational mind is highly developed and seems to be the source of motivation for his behavior, the most significant realm of his psychology is his subconscious. Therein, a conflict between understanding and feeling is raging, between the psychological functions of thought and sensation (C.G. Jung's terms). Until this conflict subsides, he might feel a sensation of emptiness. He is troubled by and unable to explain this feeling, which leads him to adopt an attitude of doubt and skepticism. This conflict, and its various ramifications, are the main obstacle to his individuation. His task consists of becoming the master of the energies of his subconscious, and developing his consciousness in terms of the hidden and invisible. His evolution will occur through a series of metamorphoses and rebirths. However, at certain points in his life, despite his caution and clear thinking, he finds himself in situations he neither desired nor planned, as a result of explosions and eruptions of the elements fermenting in his psyche. He always survives the worst physical, emotional, or intellectual tests, however, fairly unscathed, because of his ability to be reborn and start afresh.
As a partner, you might struggle to make compromises. You may appear frosty and distant at times, and you have a taste for challenging, provocative remarks. With yourself, as well as with others, you are sometimes excessive and complicated. In a discussion, you will express strong, honest opinions. In crisis situations, you wish for your efforts to be noticed. You are obsessed with the problem of death. You tend to believe it holds the secret of life – that death can be overcome.
Sometimes your anxiety about death is expressed as a search for answers – how can one learn to live with death, how can one detach oneself from the past and its flesh-curdlingly morbid realities… Decay, immobility, ultimate delivery – these images, which are all symbolically associated with death, sometimes haunt you.
Intellectually, you have powerfully developed intellectual faculties which yield the maximum effectiveness for your behavior. Deductive, analytical, prospective, you are at once a researcher, a detective, and a scientist. You are fairly introverted, and your discrimination tends to direct you toward the spheres of inner life. You are astute at drawing rational parallels between phenomena of different origins. Your love life will be subject to
Paul has a independent and individualistic temperament, sometimes aggravated by outer discipline and authority. His need to preserve his originality and freedom often inspires him to display eccentric and unconventional behavior, even if it shocks the people around him. He is also reluctant to be tied down unnecessarily, so he may exaggerate his detached “lone wolf” aspect. Actually, he is passionately fond of developing a strict and monastic inner discipline. Others generally appreciate his optimism and intellectual qualities, the originality of his opinions, and the subtlety and keenness of his insights. However, his taste for paradox and provocation may not be for everyone. He is attracted by exploration and discovery and enjoys modernistic or futuristic settings. As a result, he may feel somewhat out of place socially in a traditional environment. It is important for him to commit himself to groups which share his ideals and conceptions of their purpose and that he assume responsibilities, such as transmitting the enthusiasm of his visionary projections. He is exceptionally talented for parceling out energy, and could successfully assume an executive or managerial role. Although he is more mind-oriented than sensual, he is quite honest when expressing his emotions, which often feel more platonic than passionate.
Paul thrives on relating to other people. He cannot live without love!
Paul has a tendency to live in an imaginary world; the distant and abstract sometimes interests him more than what is right at hand and realistic.
Paul has a good balance between his need for movement and his tendency to be sedentary. He is just as likely to adapt to situations which require outbursts of initiative as to those which demand patience and perseverance.
Paul Born in the three days after the rising of the new moon, you are said to be a “new moon” lunar type. This “soli-lunar” configuration gives you a subjective character, somewhat impulsive and sometimes emotive. Generally, you do not see the world in objective terms; instead, you base your attitude on the feelings various situations arouse inside you. Likewise, in human relationships, you tend to project your imaginary reality onto others instead of seeing them for what they are. As a result, your judgements and reasoning are sometimes deprived of perspective. You may want to make an effort to refrain from overinterpreting other people's actions, because, being the product of your imagination in most cases, your interpretations are mistaken. If you apply yourself to listening more openly, people may reveal their deeper motivations. You'll be happier and more effective as a result.
