Consciousness and The Ideal of Self:
Tana is patient. Tana is fond of routine, ritual, and any other events or ceremonies which mark the passage of time and the seasons. Tana tries to be as pragmatic as possible and unconsciously senses that Tana’s relationship with material things will be the best foundation for Tana’s self-development and individuation. As a result, Tana is attached to Tana’s possessions and will make every effort to cling to them.
Tana has a taste for luxury and magnificence, for a dazzling social life and a distinguished career. When things are going well for Tana, she tends to think of herself as the center of the universe, an attitude that those close to her do not always appreciate. Although Tana 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. Tana’s exaggerated optimism could create difficulties for her by causing her to make errors in judgment.
Tana Mongeau is fairly strong-willed, and is mindful of going about her purposes with maximum efficiency. When she relates to other people, she sometimes has trouble expressing her emotions, but she does have a lively sensitivity and is capable of lasting passion. As she grows older, she is quite likely to come into her own and acquire great intellectual and spiritual wisdom. Her honesty, integrity, and sense of duty will win her recognition and appreciation. Passing time will be a very important factor in her destiny, and her greatest accomplishments will guarantee her stability and prosperity. Although she is not especially enterprising, she will move into a high career position as soon as she feels sure of her abilities.
Tana Mongeau is extremely sensitive and receptive and 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 Unable to understand their disciplinary measures or authority, she may have withdrawn into herself in self-defense.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 frees 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.
Tana Mongeau has an inalienable awareness of the void and the vanity of existence. Tana Mongeau is sometimes disoriented and deconstructed by an unknowable, unconscious force and tends to ignore or disparage the superficial pleasures and pains of daily life, preferring to dive into the depths of human experience as deeply as Tana Mongeau’s intellectual, emotional, and spiritual capacities permit. Grappling with Tana Mongeau’s “fundamental nature,” with the deepest and most primitive part of Tana Mongeau, Tana Mongeau is sometimes aghast at the discovery of the sheer power of Tana Mongeau’s instincts and feels an imperious need to cope with them. This special consciousness Tana Mongeau has been endowed with is somewhat beyond the bounds of conventional schools of human understanding and thought and may be a source of identity problems for Tana Mongeau at the outset. It is not easy for Tana Mongeau to recognize Tana Mongeau in any social or narcissistic models, or identify with any existing roles or attitudes, so Tana Mongeau sometimes finds Tana Mongeau forced to assert and express Tana Mongeau’s own identity in a way which may strike Tana Mongeau’s contemporaries as strangely intense if not eccentric.
Adaptation and Sensitivity:
Mild and sensitive, Tana Mongeau is deeply human. Tana Mongeau is sociable and sincerely devoted to others. Tana Mongeau’s mother or a mother-figure had a strong influence on Tana Mongeau’s psyche, and Tana Mongeau’s childhood was an important time in Tana Mongeau’s life. Tana Mongeau still identifies with vivid childhood memories; they are the basis for Tana Mongeau’s reveries, for Tana Mongeau’s extreme sensitivity, and for habits which Tana Mongeau may be slow to break. However, Tana Mongeau will thrive in the shelter of a family setting, soothed by the presence of a spouse and children. Tana Mongeau is fond of security and routine; being somewhat impressionable and anxious, Tana Mongeau may have trouble adjusting to situations which are unfamiliar.
Tana Mongeau’s intellect is lively, agile, and sensitive. However, Tana does not always avail herself of it and may be confused or irrational in some situations. Although Tana enjoys playing with words, ideas, and concepts, her thought sometimes lacks discipline and structure. Tana is fairly preoccupied with details and may tend to waste her nervous and mental energy in futile verbal outpourings. Moreover, Tana’s feelings sometimes blur her objective vision of phenomena and people, which may cause her to make errors in judgment.
Tana Mongeau is emotional and tends to react suddenly and excessively as soon as her sensitivity is touched. Although she feels that her independence, freedom, and self-sufficiency are fundamental values, she is sometimes frustrated by her need to rely on her family or friends. Moreover, she does not always grant the freedom of other people the same respect as her own. Likewise, she is sometimes angered by expressions of maternal tenderness, as if she feared that it would doom her to eternal dependency. Her ambivalent behavior, full of jagged edges, may be traced back to the relationship she had with her mother or a mother figure. Although she was dependent on them, they may have rejected her. Now this attitude is extended to any situation in which her sensitivity comes into play and emotional bonds are liable to form. To ward off her feelings of dependency, she sometimes tends to become destructive. Based on denial, her reactions might be fierce, impulsive, excessive, erratic, or contradictory.
Love and Sensuality:
Tana Mongeau enjoys captivating people with the elegance and ease of her expression. She is a witty and engaging flirt, an avid player of the game of love. As a result, the history of her affections is liable to be episodic, a long series of chapters about conquests or fleeting love affairs. She may carry on some love relationships by writing letters.
Tana Mongeau’s birth chart indicates an emotional function which is expressed in a direct and fairly impulsive way. Tana enjoys reaching out to other people and making discoveries. An eternal teenager with Tana’s gaze riveted on the future, Tana is imbued with an eminently subjective and personal idealism.
Somewhat eccentric, sensitive, and imaginative, Tana Mongeau has a sort of sixth sense which enables her to perceive others with extreme keenness. She will find family life and possibly parenthood fulfilling, and it will bring her maturity. As she becomes more peaceful, realistic, and consistent, her family life will come to the forefront. She will adore her loved ones or children and protect them as symbols of her own fulfillment.
Due to Tana Mongeau’s intellectual temperament, she is sometimes more interested in verbal or social exchanges than in actual lovemaking. She enjoys flirting and tends to have fun with love rather than become passionately engaged. Because she avoids intense passion, she tends to flutter from one good-looking face to the next, enjoying her ability to charm. She believes that played this way, the game of love can have few serious consequences.
Tana Mongeau has a great emotional ideal, full of subtlety and tenderness. However, she tends to be overwhelmed by her imagination and may not be selective enough when choosing a partner. Her romantic and trusting nature may make her vulnerable. Although she strives to establish peaceful, uncomplicated relations, she sometimes experiences painful disappointments. Her artistic delicacy and refinement provide her with a sincere love of the arts, music, and literature. She is likely to be a gifted poet.
From the outside, Tana Mongeau 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.
Mental and Intellect:
Tana Mongeau’s intellect, which is simultaneously subjective and sensitive, acute and intuitive, always practical and deeply rooted in human experience, predisposes her to a people-oriented activity. With her memory and imagination combined with her shrewdness, she would be a gifted project manager, businesswoman, or scholar of history or literature.
