Sophia Banks has a consciousness and an ideal of self. She is aware and knows how to act in accordance with her ideal.
Sophia Banks has a 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.
Sophia Banks has 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.
Sophia Banks has an extremely sensitive and receptive nature, and she tends to live in osmosis with her surroundings. Her individuality almost seems to be diluted in a flood of sensations and impressions which are continually washing over her, and she sometimes finds it difficult to communicate her feelings to other people or engage in any structured, analytical thought. This may stem from a misunderstanding with her teachers when she was a child. Unable to understand their disciplinary measures or authority, she may have withdrawn into herself in self-defense. It was then that she constructed her rich inner life, the part of her they could not invade, and cut many of her ties to the outside.
Because she enjoyed indulging in her inner life, it may have been difficult for her to acquire an objective vision of reality. As a result, even today, she tends to create imaginary problems for herself, regardless of the objective facts outside. Although her imagination is a source of inspiration and intuition, her fluid inner structure and organization sometimes make it difficult for her to grasp the essence of her dreams and share them with other people. She is not at all combative, and this tends to hinder her efforts to fit into society and assert herself productively.
She is likely to prefer fantasy to reality, but her refusal to abandon her unattainable dreams is a psychological trap she has fallen into without realizing it. She must understand that by running away from her obligations and commitments, she only increases the feelings of guilt and incompetence which made reality so distasteful in the first place. Once she free herself from this pernicious process, she has a great deal of potential for fulfilling herself in the outer world, either by devoting herself to some sort of social work or by cultivating her considerable artistic talents.
Sophia Banks generally tends to be motivated by activities which apply to social needs. She tends to give the best of herself in difficult situations which require crucial choices. Her 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.
Sophia Banks has adapted to the new environment very well. She is very sensitive to the needs of the people around her and is able to work well with others.
Sophia Banks is pragmatic and realistic. She evaluates people and things according to practical, common-sense criteria instead of abstract concepts. A sensualist and lover of luxury, she has a penchant for material comfort and takes great joy in physical pleasures. In relation to others, socially and privately, she likes to build stable relationships and is not especially fond of change. Her warmth gives her a great deal of ease when meeting people, as clients (for business purposes), but her close relations also benefit from this affection and her ability to express her feelings naturally and openly.
Sophia Banks has a lively, agile, and sensitive intellect. However, she does not always avail herself of it and may be confused or irrational in some situations. Although she enjoys playing with words, ideas, and concepts, her thought sometimes lacks discipline and structure. She is fairly preoccupied with details and may tend to waste her nervous and mental energy in futile verbal outpourings. Moreover, her feelings sometimes blur her objective vision of phenomena and people, which may cause her to make errors in judgment.
Sophia Banks 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 go 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.
Sophia Banks has a cool and distant demeanor. Although her demeanor is cool and distant, she is extremely sensitive. In some cases, her rather austere and rigid behavior and refusal to yield too readily to sentimentality discourage others from being too demonstrative of their tenderness and affection. She has spells of melancholy in which she does not feel worthy of being loved and tend to forbid herself emotional fulfillment. An austere or somewhat traumatic childhood experience may be the source of this behavior. It is difficult for her inner self to be detached from this past life, and she sometimes has trouble reconciling the image she has of herself as an adult with the one she acquired back then. The idea she has of herself as an individual is related to the image her parents projected onto her as a child. Nevertheless, the past is history, and she is now an adult. It should be easy for her to rid herself of these phantoms through self-work. She has the ability to overcome her mistakes and great endurance and will power to achieve her goals. Nevertheless, she must not repress her sensitivity in order to succeed.
Sophia Banks has a pragmatic and relatively realistic approach to life, although she is sometimes tormented by an insidious feeling of insecurity which interferes with her ability to grasp reality. Change unnerves her, and at certain times she tends to cling to old-fashioned customs or lifestyles. Insecurities might cause her to repress her emotional needs.
Sophia Banks has a love and sensuality that is all her own. She is not content with just being sexual, she wants to be loved for who she is.
Sophia Banks has a romantic nature and is seeking a soulmate. The world of her emotions is warm and inviting, the expression of true kindness. Tenderness, grace, and mildness rule her sensitivity, which is aroused by contact with nature and thrills to the idea of a secure, stable home.
Sophia Banks has a birth chart indicating an emotional function which is usually expressed carefully and reasonably. Distrustful of her emotional urges and somewhat wary of her feelings, she tries to rid herself of all partiality and try to get some perspective and distance before making an emotional commitment.
Sophia Banks has a contradictory character and cannot always reconcile her urges with reason. It is difficult for her to resist a person she’s interested in romantically, and she is liable to choose someone unsuitable, uncommitted, or fickle. She may find parenting fulfilling, and it could bring her maturity. As she becomes more peaceful, realistic, and consistent, her family life will come to the forefront. If she has children, she will nurture them as a symbol of her own fulfillment.
Sophia Banks has a difficult time when it comes to romance. She is easily dazzled by social status and is attracted to strong and powerful people. Nevertheless, fulfilling this desire may mean that she finds herself subject to the whims of a partner with a strong personality, and she may feel ill at ease in a social or society life that is too intense. She will find sanctuary and stability in her home, family life, and, if she chooses to have them, children.
Sophia Banks may be characterized by strong sensual and affectionate urges which drive her to seek pleasure. Her need for romantic fulfillment may compel her to marry, because she 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 she had indeed achieved success. However, privately, she might be less committed to certain obligations and duties.
Sophia Banks has an ardent and amorous character, and her relationships with the other sex are enlivened by intensity and passion. A charmer perpetually engaged in a quest for the ideal love, she is often more in love with the idea of love than with her partners. As a result, her love life may be subject to some instability. She is generally attracted to original people who defy norms, standards, and classifications, and expect them to amaze and fascinate her. Love is often a matter of luck with her. Even when a relationship falls apart, she does not see the experience as a failure or a tragedy; instead, she seems to learn valuable lessons from her mistakes. Psychologically, her emotion contributes positively and efficiently to her evolution. From another standpoint, her acute sensitivity predisposes her to original and subtle tastes; she is so receptive to beauty and attached to the concepts of truth and balance that they may all combine to yield remarkable creative potential.
Sophia Banks has a romantic imagination, soaring with idealism, dreams, and poetry. She is emotive and hypersensitive, making her especially vulnerable emotionally, since she is sometimes overwhelmed by her feelings and affects. Although she seeks an ideal soulmate, a partner with whom she could maintain blissful, smooth relations, she is sometimes met with disillusionment. Because her rather excessive sensitivity and her need to merge with the other are deep and powerful enough, they can submerge her judgment and discernment, so she sometimes forms extremely intense bonds too quickly with individuals who are not appropriate partners in many ways. When she meets someone, she falls under the enchantment of her dream of ideal love and cannot keep herself from delighting in a reverie of future romance, placing the other on a pedestal. Early on in the relationship, she yields to another of her characteristic urges and loses herself in the individual who is so dear to her, melding with them, only to awaken one morning and find herself as if in the arms of a stranger, greatly astounded and disappointed. Actually, her psyche is constructed in such a way as to make her sensitivity a function of the environment, in many cases; it follows the flow of momentary emotions and impressions. Before she takes on any major commitments, she should make a conscious effort to evaluate the relationship realistically, and see whether the person really reciprocates her intense love, for she may merely be in love with the mirage of an ideal partner. Her tendency to believe in her illusions may mark her as an easy prey for people with bad intentions. It would be a good idea for her to find a different object for her affections, or a form of sublimation, because she tends to be so disappointed by her great emotional investments. The delicacy and subtlety of her imagination procure artistic refinement for her, and she loves the arts, music, and literature, which could all be good sources of emotional involvement and fulfillment. Because her sensitivity also makes it easy for her to empathize with the psychological or social difficulties her peers are struggling with, she might also find it rewarding to commit herself to social work.
Sophia Banks has a good balance between her need for movement and her tendency to be sedentary. She is just as likely to adapt to situations which require outbursts of initiative as to those which demand patience and perseverance. From the outside, she seems to be detached and aloof, but on the inside she is an extremely complex individual, full of contradictions. Because she sometimes feels vulnerable emotionally, she tries to control not only her own feelings and urges, but may also strive to manipulate those of her partners. She aspires to a profound and enduring spiritual unity, but at the same time, the idea of abandoning herself and yielding to the other terrifies her. This anguish may be a source of rather extreme behavior patterns and a somewhat self-focused attitude which could damage the relationship. Because she is guarded and somewhat secretive, she tends to be suspicious and is especially uneasy about spontaneous intimacy, although she is fascinated by sexuality. Within the privacy of the couple, she will not express her feelings unless she is subject to some tension. Life may be peppered with frequent crises and feuds, arguments and spats which usually act as erotic provocation. This derivation of eroticism from anxiety tends to be one of the fundamental characteristics of her emotional and sexual functioning. As a result, she is likely to be attracted by stormy and complicated relationships.

This mental agitation could sometimes make her scattered, however, or lacking in coherence and discipline.
