What does Shakira’s psychology tell us about them?

Consciousness and The Ideal of Self:

Her confidence in herself sometimes falters, and she might try to compensate for this weakness by insisting on her authority over others. With the people she is emotionally committed to, the same nagging feelings of insecurity prevent her from expressing her generosity and love fully; her extreme independence sometimes hides an inability to abandon herself and a lack of assurance.

Shakira has a paternal complex and, as a result, some trouble finding her identity. Perhaps her father or a father figure was absent physically or emotionally during her childhood, which deprived her of the patterns or models which are usually helpful in structuring a personality. Because she might have lacked a particular sense of security which could be provided by a paternal presence, as well as the examples of behavior to follow in confronting the difficulties inherent in every life, she was forced to protect herself against negative influences and find her own system in order to grow and feel secure.

Although this system was quite useful to her as a child, it has now settled in to such a degree that it interferes with her evolution. Psychological defense mechanisms and crutches which were once useful now encumber her mind or inhibit her developmental efforts. As a result, in certain situations, it is difficult for her to assert herself, and she tends to remain an awkward or passive observer. Because her authoritarian urges are mainly directed at herself rather than others, she sometimes feels guilty about her behavior. She judges herself severely, and sometimes punishes herself by setting difficult tasks for herself. Gradually, she should build up a strong inner discipline and acquire the strength to face the problems of existence in a detached and mature way.

Shakira has a taste for luxury and magnificence, for a dazzling social life and a distinguished career. When things are going well for her, she tends to think of herself as the center of the universe, an attitude that those close to her do not always appreciate. Although she is quite likely to succeed in her ambition to become wealthy and popular and lead a remarkable life in the outer world, her lack of moderation and overweening self-confidence expose her to some danger. Her exaggerated optimism could create difficulties for her by causing her to make errors in judgment.

Shakira is sober and rather reserved and may even strike people as harsh and austere at times. Perhaps Shakira was raised in an atmosphere of rigor and sobriety, and, as a result, grew up very fast. Shakira has acquired a spirit of self-sufficiency, tends to be rather uncompromising, and has a touchy sense of her personal dignity and worth. It is almost as though Shakira were fighting an inner battle with her father or a father figure. The psychological models Shakira received from her father or a father figure as a result of her interaction and her own interaction with authority may not have played a major role in shaping her relationships with the outer world and society. Shakira may thus have been forced to compensate for this lack with individual determination.

As a result, although Shakira is skillful, meticulous, conscientious, and efficient, a lack of self-confidence and personal assurance sometimes makes Shakira timid and hesitant. Shakira sometimes feels as though Shakira is only masquerading as a respectable, sober adult. Shakira tends to be far too critical of herself and rarely feel satisfied that Shakira is living up to her ideal. These unnecessary guilt feelings may lead Shakira to turn down the prominent career positions for which Shakira is fully qualified. Shakira is aware that early success is often short-lived and fragile and that time rewards those who know how to be patient and persistent, like Shakira.

Shakira is an ardent free thinker and individualist who is convinced that her most precious basic values are freedom and independence. She has thrown off what she perceives as the burden of the convention and customs of her social class and adopted an innovative lifestyle. Her passionate convictions, bordering on proselytism, sometimes trouble her relationships, as she may be an uncompromising partner. She would do well to learn to recognize her own limitations and accept the responsibilities she has to other people, or she is liable to find herself continually embroiled in conflicting relationships.

The roots of her somewhat extreme behavior probably lie in her relationship with her father or her teachers in childhood and adolescence. For one reason or another, she may have rejected the paternal image or refused to identify with her father, in the same way as she now refuses to adopt any values related to convention, tradition, or widespread usage. In every important life decision she makes as an adult, she is forced to rely on herself to elaborate the appropriate behavior, and the limits she must impose on her desires in relation to reality and the law.

Shakira has a profound and fertile inner life and a prolific imagination, but her energy resources are not always sufficient to follow through on and accomplish her multitude of dreams. She tends to live in osmosis with her environment, and effort and action take a heavy toll on her. Usually, she understands phenomena and events intuitively, without really making any effort; so she is not in the habit of disciplining or shaping her thought processes. Like her thoughts, her personality is rather amorphous and disorganized. As a result of this lack of structure, she may have some trouble asserting her individuality and making some personal contribution to society through her career. Her tendency to shut out reality and dream impossible dreams, like her refusal of responsibility and duty, may be a source of some difficulty for her.

Shakira generally tends to be motivated by activities which apply to social needs. Shakira tends to give the best of herself in difficult situations which require crucial choices. Shakira’s ability to concentrate and her gift for solving problems by deductive reasoning are her chief resources in crisis situations or at turning points in her life.

Adaptation and Sensitivity:

An eloquent speaker and compulsive charmer, Shakira has a powerful personal magnetism which may sometimes make her seem arrogant or smug. She cares a great deal about her reputation and will try hard to be admired and appreciated by the people around her. Fond of social events and parties, Shakira likes to be the host, to entertain and charm a captive audience of guests. Indeed, she has special dramatic and artistic talents of the caliber necessary for success in film, theater, fashion, or art in general. Shakira enjoys displaying her generosity, but she also displays a short temper at times; she is easily offended. Her partner will have to be a brilliant person, strong and sure of themselves, devoted to her and capable of enhancing her reputation.

Shakira has a sensitive and affectionate nature. She seeks tenderness and gentleness more than passion. Her relationships with others are smooth and pleasant, and she has a natural sense of tact and social grace.

Shakira has a sensitive personality. She may jump to conclusions, which could disrupt relationships, as well as career plans. She is subject to cyclical energy flows and goes from periods of feverish activity to periods of withdrawal and introspection. The aggressive element in her behavior may be explained by emotional problems she may have experienced in infancy: her mother, or a mother figure, may have had an energetic and volatile personality.

Love and Sensuality:

Shakira’s personality is dominated by love and affectivity. She is subject to love at first sight, and her gallant heart sometimes leaps forth impulsively; her sensitivity is lively and powerful. Amorous rivalries and conquests may be a recurring theme throughout her life.

Shakira’s birth chart indicates an emotional function which is expressed in a direct and fairly impulsive way. Shakira enjoys reaching out to other people and making discoveries. An eternal teenager with her gaze riveted on the future, Shakira is imbued with an eminently subjective and personal idealism.

Due to a conflict between Shakira’s sensitivity and ideals, she will have trouble finding the perfect harmony she seeks in love. She is proud and delighted to shine and will not settle for anything less than a starring role. As a result, she demands quite a bit of her partner. Whereas she sees marriage as an opportunity for social advancement, she is liable to strike up with a mate more interested in ideas than success (unless they are always busy with their friends). Nevertheless, after age 40, she may find harmonious fulfillment.

Shakira tends to be attracted to strong-minded people, with whom she is likely to compete. She enjoys having a sparring partner. Because fleeting adventures seem dissatisfying to her, she may sometimes forego love completely in order to devote all her energy to her career.

Mental and Intellect:

Shakira sometimes considers the input from her subjectivity and emotions as static which she tries to tune out to go straight to the essence of knowledge. As a result, regardless of her field of study, she tries to obtain perspective. She will elaborate a thought on the basis of fairly cold, abstract logic, supported by sober, concise, and immaculate reasoning. Her choice areas of study could be mathematics, philosophy, legislation, or political science. Ideologies, theories, and any other system of reasoning could serve as “food for thought” for Shakira.

Shakira expresses her thoughts and ideas in direct, spontaneous outbursts. She is fairly extroverted and eager to discover and understand the outer world. An idealist, Shakira looks forward to a bright future but is sometimes subjective and reckless.

Shakira has a lively and agile spirit. She is curious and open-minded, approaching various life experiences without either dogmatism or prejudice. As a result of the liveliness of her mind, she tends to have an opinion on every subject, but she does not always have the patience or perspective necessary to examine a subject and gain in-depth knowledge of it.

She enjoys manipulating expressions and concepts and amuses herself with witty remarks, satire, and controversy. If she learned to control her flow of words better and elaborate her thoughts more, she might make a talented communicator.

Because she is often too hasty to formulate and construct the arguments which would back up and inform her ideas, she is sometimes misunderstood. She is often blind to the rashness of her judgments and convinced they are well-founded and objective, which sometimes irritates the people around her. If she were to succeed in disciplining her mind somewhat, she would have innumerable opportunities to apply her communications skills to a great career. However, she would do well to be careful of her nerves.

Shakira has a mind with an insatiable appetite for knowledge and an exceptional ability to learn. Without trying too hard, Shakira could probably accumulate encyclopedic erudition. Shakira’s intellectual curiosity is such that it is sometimes a drawback. Shakira sometimes has trouble limiting herself to a single subject without being distracted by a multitude of others.

Discipline and a conscious effort at organization will be of great help if Shakira wants to deepen her learning and judgment. Once Shakira’s intellectual faculties are disciplined, Shakira is likely to succeed in any of the following fields: teaching, historical scholarship, advertising, writing (journalistic or literary), travel, etc: – in fact, communication in any form.
