Suzi Barrett is a meticulous and dogged worker, gifted for tasks which require great precision and discipline. She might struggle with pessimism about her own self-worth and try to compensate for this feeling by constantly keeping busy and devoting herself almost entirely to those close to her.
At the moment of your birth, the two celestial “lights” (the sun and the moon) were symmetrically aligned. This is a sign of harmony between the masculine and feminine archetypes, which is extremely beneficial. It is the source of balance and understanding between the two main psychological realms which may be said to compose the personality. You thus enjoy a positive complementarity and understanding between the conscious and unconscious aspects of your psyche, between your determination and your routines, between your drive for self-assertion and your receptivity, your ideal and your sensitivity. Your parents almost certainly reflected a positive image of the marriage relationship to you, and it is likely that they encouraged you to develop your own individuality. As a result, you were and are able to be comfortable with yourself as you are instead of striving to attain your parents’ ideal. This has definitely contributed to the maintenance of a good relationship with them and the rest of the family. In your emotional relationships with your peers, one of the effects of the masculine/feminine harmony is that the images your ego projects on the other are especially constructive. The bonds of the relationship are not felt to be constraints, the energy which flows between the two people is a source of mutual happiness, not regret. No major personal conflicts are projected onto the “other” – that is, the significant other.
Suzi Barrett 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 which 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 by causing her to make errors in judgment.
You are sober and reserved and may even strike people as rigid and austere at times. Perhaps you were raised in an atmosphere of rigor and sobriety as a child, and, as a result, became an adult a little too fast. In any case, you quickly acquired a spirit of self-sufficiency and a strong sense of your personal dignity and worth. At work, you are skillful, meticulous, conscientious, and efficient, but your lack of self confidence and personal assurance hinder your decision-making skills. Although you would deserve a prominent executive position, you might refuse any that are offered due to your fear of being in the limelight. You are aware that early success is often short-lived and fragile and that time rewards those who are patient, which, in your case, is true. The psychological mechanisms described above are probably the result of a paternal complex. In childhood, your identity may have been too strongly attached to that of your father or a father figure, for one of the following reasons:- the bond with your father was too close,- your father was absent and/or idealized,- your father was too strict, etc.In any case, this psychological particularity can act either as a handicap or as an opportunity for the individual to overcome yourself. It will result in two groups of opposite but complementary reactions which will rule your behavior all your life:- hypersensitivity or insensitivity- intense life wish or discomfort with life- obsession or renunciation- skepticism or fanaticism- asceticism or lust- jealousy or indifference- effort or lazinessThe so-called “Saturnian” phases (at age 7, 14, 21, 28 or 29, and 35 years) will be transitional periods that give you an opportunity to resolve this complex in real life.
Suzi Barrett is extremely sensitive and receptive, living 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. This tide of emotion is a source of inspiration and intuition, but 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 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.
Suzi Barrett usually keeps her feelings under control and avoids situations where she might have to express them. This inhibition is related to a feeling of not having been loved enough. In many cases, this detriment to her love life causes her to pour all her energy into her work. She seeks social recognition through her career achievements.
Suzi Barrett’s intellect is lively, agile, and sensitive. 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.
Suzi Barrett is a cheerful, expansive, pleasant associate to have. She is extremely generous (sometimes to a fault!) and gives of herself and her belongings unstintingly. This positive psychological outlook is the result of a happy childhood and especially an extremely beneficial maternal influence in infancy. She is quite likely to be a professional success; her vision of the world is perfectly adapted to prevailing opinion, and her urges and desires for personal expansion usually elicit a positive reaction from society. By old age, her good reputation and prominence may have earned her fame.
Suzi Barrett’s sensitivity and emotions are often in conflict with her instincts. This inner discord makes her a fairly complicated relationship partner, and her behavior sometimes strikes others as mysterious or baffling. She is liable to switch from one attitude to the opposite. Sexuality is an important part of her life, and her relationships are most often motivated by her desires. Nevertheless, due to her unconscious inner battle, she does not often succeed in reconciling and fulfilling her emotional and sexual needs. Due to the strength of her instincts, passion may overwhelm her and drag her into situations she cannot always control, which intermingle erotic ecstasy and anguish, guilt, and aggressiveness.
Suzi Barrett has fairly lofty amorous aspirations. The soulmate she imagines for herself is brilliant and dazzling with an array of talents and beauty. However, the gap between her splendid ideal and reality is sometimes wide. She should be careful not to confuse her romantic ideal with reality and become aware that her tendency to project may be a way of fleeing from herself.
Suzi Barrett’s birth chart indicates that she has an emotional function that is expressed in a direct and fairly impulsive way. She enjoys reaching out to other people and making discoveries. An eternal teenager with her gaze riveted on the future, she is imbued with an eminently subjective and personal idealism.
Suzi Barrett is fairly conventional and strict when it comes to matters of love and emotional relations. She does not feel talented in this area, and generally finds herself quite competent professionally. Her schedule leaves her little time to be attentive to her own moods and urges or the messages from her heart. For Suzi, relationships will be a serious, businesslike matter, which satisfies her ambition and interests.
Suzi Barrett must not confuse the heart’s logic with sexual needs. This is the psychological rule at the root of her suffering and disappointments. Carried away by an overwhelming physical attraction, she may find herself in the arms of a jealous partner. She would be well advised to take a long, hard look at her feelings before committing to a long-term relationship.
Suzi Barrett has the passionate, importunate nature of a fervent lover. Indeed, affairs of the heart are one of her main purposes in life. Her personal charm and magnetism are compellingly seductive; unfortunately, her attempts at conquest do not always lead to the fulfillment and satisfaction of her desires. Due to her impulsiveness and impatience to initiate new encounters, her approach to those she is attracted to may sometimes lack tact and delicacy. As a result of the foregoing, it may be somewhat difficult for her to maintain stable and harmonious relationships. Indeed, her emotional behavior is subject to a conflict between her quest for love and her need to satisfy her lust. Her outpourings of affection and her need to be loved in return sometimes create complicated situations in which lust may be confused with love, or love may exist without lust, and she may feel unrequited or unfulfilled. This inner contradiction is a sign of her tendency to derive pleasure from suffering – either her own or that of her partner. The relationship thus becomes the setting for a sort of power struggle, weakening it as a source of psychological equilibrium. Nevertheless, she could sublimate this difficulty through artistic expression.
Suzi Barrett has a mental aptitude for comparing, evaluating, and weighing information. This intellectual modus operandi has enabled her to develop an innate sense of values, both artistic and ethical, as well as a remarkable ability to relate to other people. Her appreciative, conciliatory attitude makes her a skillful diplomat able to untangle conflict situations deftly and with ease. In other situations, her artistic spirit is sensitive to a wide variety of harmonies.
Suzi Barrett tries to shun subjectivity and be as objective as possible. Her thoughts are usually structured, and her reasoning, based on objective facts or experience, usually relates to practical goals.
In relations with other people, Suzi Barrett’s behavior is usually kind and benevolent. She exerts a certain charm, knows how to speak persuasively and convincingly, and is adept at smoothing the asperities of what she has to say when it is necessary. This aspect of her personality is a great advantage to her socially; however, in situations where she must either compete or deal with direct conflict and hostility, she may be somewhat at a loss for how to behave. She has an undeniable gift for oratory which could be applied to a communications-related occupation or to artistic expression (as a stage or screen actor). Writing and dance, two other arts which associate expression and movement, might also be fields in which she would excel.
