Consciousness and The Ideal of Self:
Due to Russell Westbrook’s unconscious feelings of insecurity, he is a serious, steadfast individual who tries to stay grounded. His ambitions are strong, and he will always be seeking a higher social position. He sometimes adopts a strategy of solitude and introversion.
Russell Westbrook’s complex and sometimes rather extremist personality is rooted in an instinctual drive which dwarfs mere rationalism. He finds the dark side of existence alluring and is attracted to mystery and the occult. He delightedly immerses himself in the depths of human experience, stretching his intellectual, emotional, and spiritual resources to their maximum.
Adaptation and Sensitivity:
Usually cool and distant in demeanor, Russell Westbrook represses his feelings and sensitivity and avoids the sort of situation where he might be forced to express them. This inhibition is related to a feeling of not having been loved enough. In many cases, to the detriment of his love life, Russell Westbrook is capable of plunging all his energy into his work. He seeks social recognition through his career achievements.
Russell Westbrook has a sensitive personality. He may jump to conclusions, which could disrupt relationships, as well as career plans. He is subject to cyclical energy flows and go from periods of feverish activity to periods of withdrawal and introspection. The aggressive element in his behavior may be explained by emotional problems he may have experienced in infancy: his mother, or a mother figure, may have had an energetic and volatile personality.
Russell Westbrook is an expansive, affable, and communicative associate. Indeed, some people find him generous almost to a fault! He gives of himself and his resources unstintingly. Paradoxically, there are times when he is self-focused. He reacts instinctively, without taking the trouble to analyze a given situation, and are prone to misjudge. As a result, his everyday life may be riddled with a whole variety of practical problems. Indeed, he senses a conflict between his social life and his family and will sometimes find it hard to fulfill himself in both spheres at the same time. His attitude toward his private life may inhibit his ambitions for social or career expansion; at worst, society (the law) may impinge on his private life. He should be careful not to project his personal problems onto his partner. If, instead, the two of you analyzed the problem, you might be able to find opportunities to resolve it together.
Although Russell Westbrook’s demeanor is cool and distant, he is extremely sensitive. In some cases, his rather austere and rigid behavior and his refusal to yield too readily to sentimentality discourage others from being too demonstrative of their tenderness and affection. He has spells of melancholy in which he does not feel worthy of being loved and tends to forbid himself emotional fulfillment. An austere or somewhat traumatic childhood experience may be the source of this behavior. He may have suffered rejection in his infancy, and, as a result, lacked the parental love which is essential to the cohesion of a personality and identity. In order to feel secure, and to protect himself from ever suffering rejection or abandonment again, he withdrew into himself and developed his aloofness as a defense mechanism. When he finally lets down his defenses and allows himself to express his feelings, he tends to become impassioned and exalted. He is fairly introverted and egocentric and has a powerful sense of his own identity.
Due to nagging feelings of insecurity, Russell Westbrook sometimes tries to justify himself to others and gain their approval by showing that he is worthy of their affection. Nevertheless, his pessimism remains, and the severe taboos he unconsciously place on himself sometimes keep him from developing quickly.
Russell Westbrook is emotional and tends to react suddenly and excessively as soon as his sensitivity is touched. Although he feels that his independence, freedom, and self-sufficiency are fundamental values, he is sometimes frustrated by his need to rely on his family or friends. Moreover, he does not always grant the freedom of other people the same respect as his own. Likewise, he is sometimes angered by expressions of maternal tenderness, as if he feared that it would doom him to eternal dependency. His ambivalent behavior, full of jagged edges, may be traced back to the relationship he had with his mother or a mother figure. Although he was dependent on them, they may have rejected him. Now this attitude is extended to any situation in which his sensitivity comes into play and emotional bonds are liable to form. To ward off his feelings of dependency, he tends to become destructive. Based on denial, his reactions are sometimes fierce, impulsive, and excessive, erratic, or contradictory.
Russell Westbrook is an extremely sensitive and imaginative person, who sometimes has trouble distinguishing dreams from reality. Although his bubbling imagination provides an abundant source of inspiration for creative or spiritual evolution, it tends to be less helpful and positive in matters that concern his self-assertion as responsible and self-sufficient. Although his psychic faculties drive him to fulfill himself through artistic activities like painting, drawing, music, or poetry, it may be difficult for him to market his talents in terms of a career. In a relationship, he is extremely romantic and does not always see others the way they really are. Because of his tendency to idealize people, he may be disappointed when their true natures are eventually betrayed.
Love and Sensuality:
Russell Westbrook tries to express his affections in the most graceful and harmonious way possible. Indeed, he has an innate sense of harmony and strives for a love relationship characterized by balance and perfection. He tends to idealize both his partner and the institution of marriage. Any disillusionment he encounters in the pursuit of his ideal may be experienced as a frustration. He does not always ply his powers of seduction skillfully.
Russell Westbrook’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.
Somewhat aloof and inhibited when it comes to emotion, Russell Westbrook might be more comfortable at work than in love. His desire to progress and his taste for power give him wings. He will do well to admit that his emotions cannot be repressed indefinitely and that no matter how well he succeeds professionally, he cannot be truly happy unless he fosters an intimate bond.
Russell Westbrook is an impassioned being, almost exclusively devoted to his feelings, which rule his destiny. He is fairly impetuous and tends to ignore any other path than that of the emotions; as a result, he sometimes charges ahead blindly without really knowing where he will end up. Nevertheless, his emotional vagaries can have major consequences. His marriage could become a crucial factor in his fate.
Mental and Intellect:
Curious, skeptical, and pragmatic, Russell Westbrook has a shrewd, inquisitorial mind. He always tries to detect the hidden mechanisms and processes behind the phenomena he observes. As a result, he has developed an ability to detect the truth behind appearances and the cause behind the effect. Although this way of thinking is based on a certain logic, and there is evidence of structure and cohesion in his deductive approach, it is not always purely intellectual. Indeed, its sources lie in a certain empiricism, in facts which have been experienced, so it is open to improvement. For this reason, its fields of application are highly diverse, although research in the hard sciences, psychology, and metaphysics seem to be the best career choices.
Russell Westbrook 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.
Russell Westbrook has a great deal of intuition but sometimes has problems organizing his thought processes and making an intellectual commitment. The concepts of boundary and structure are inimical to his mind, which is open and all-encompassing, premonitory, and web-like. His thoughts may be verbally indeterminate, vague, and ill defined. He tends to understand or sense things globally, without always noticing their component parts. Usually, he can’t see the trees for the forest.
In daily life, although his perceptions are lively and subtle, he may display a kind of absent-mindedness, out of a fear of annoying people with his shrewdness or of fighting to assert himself. His imagination sometimes escapes from the confines of logic, cringing from a confrontation with reality. This unwillingness to face the real world may cause relationship or career challenges.
