Consciousness and The Ideal of Self:
Travis Barker’s confidence in himself sometimes falters, and he might try to compensate for this weakness by insisting on his authority over others. With the people he is emotionally committed to, the same nagging feelings of insecurity prevent him from expressing his generosity and love fully; his extreme independence sometimes hides an inability to abandon himself and a lack of assurance.
You have a paternal complex and, as a result, some trouble finding your identity. Perhaps your father or a father figure was absent physically or emotionally during your childhood, which deprived you of the patterns or models which are usually helpful in structuring a personality. Because you 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, you were forced to protect yourself against negative influences and find your own system in order to grow and feel secure.
Although this system was quite useful to you as a child, it has now settled in to such a degree that it interferes with your evolution. Psychological defense mechanisms and crutches which were once useful now encumber your mind or inhibit your developmental efforts. As a result, in certain situations, it is difficult for you to assert yourself, and you tend to remain an awkward or passive observer. Because your authoritarian urges are mainly directed at yourself rather than others, you sometimes feel guilty about your behavior. You judge yourself severely, and sometimes punishes yourself by setting difficult tasks for yourself. Gradually, you should build up a strong inner discipline and acquire the strength to face the problems of existence in a detached and mature way.
Adaptation and Sensitivity:
Lively and expressive, Travis Barker has a personality which is sometimes agitated but straightforward. Unconscious feelings of insecurity compel him to act and sometimes to seek the admiration of others. As a result, he is unable to bear idleness and routine, and he is in search of perpetual excitement. His reactions to others are highly individual and depend on the mood he is in at any given moment. A person of decision, a businessperson or an athlete, he often personifies boldness and impetuosity. His love life is liable to be fiery, as it obeys the imperatives of his desire for freedom and independence, and his need for change.
Travis’ intellect is lively, agile, and sensitive. However, he does not always avail himself of it and may be confused or irrational in some situations. Although he enjoys playing with words, ideas, and concepts, his thought sometimes lacks discipline and structure. He is fairly preoccupied with details and may tend to waste his nervous and mental energy in futile verbal outpourings. Moreover, his feelings sometimes blur his objective vision of phenomena and people, which may cause him to make errors in judgment.
Travis Barker maintain strong ties with his past, and it often seems difficult for him to open his heart to new people. His love affairs might exist on the surface level, because his lust and sensual desire rarely turn into a need to understand, protect, and care for the other. Moreover, it is difficult for him to meet partners who combine the ideals of the tender parent and the great lover.
Optimistic and happy to be alive, Travis Barker is a cheerful, communicative, and pleasant associate to have. His expansive nature is related to his gratification in childhood, which probably occurred in favorable surroundings with a mother or mother figure who was loving, indulgent, and generous. He is extremely kind-hearted himself and gives of himself and his wealth unstintingly. His bountifulness, which many people appreciate somewhat selfishly, may arise from a confusion between his desires and reality.
Out of either shyness or caution, Travis Barker hides and protects his sensitivity behind a fairly cool, aloof exterior. He is fairly conservative, respectful of tradition and convention, and likes to follow the rules. Because he needs stability to alleviate his feelings of frustration and sometimes emotional dependency, he has great faith in contracts which seal relationships. His ties to his past are fairly strong. They are a source of reassurance and safety, because his parents likely gave a lot to him.
Travis Barker sometimes has trouble distinguishing dreams from reality due to his extreme sensitivity and irrepressible imagination. Although his imagination can be an abundant source of inspiration for creative or spiritual evolution, it tends to be less helpful and positive in matters that concern earning a decent living out in the real world. In a relationship, Travis is extremely romantic and does not always see others the way they really are. He has elegant tastes and art and beauty are one of his chief pleasures in life.
Travis Barker’s sensitivity and emotions are sometimes in conflict with his instincts. This inner discord makes him a fairly complicated relationship partner, and his behavior sometimes strikes others as mysterious or baffling. He is liable to switch from one attitude to the opposite. Sexuality is an important part of his life, and his relationships are most often motivated by his desires. Nevertheless, due to his unconscious inner battle, he does not often succeed in reconciling and fulfilling his emotional and sexual needs. Due to the strength of his instincts, passion may overwhelm him and drag him into situations he cannot always control, which intermingle erotic ecstasy and anguish, guilt, and aggressiveness.
Love and Sensuality:
Travis Barker 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.
Travis Barker’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.
Travis Barker might struggle to feel comfortable with himself. He’s assertive in his relationships, especially with love interests, and at times, this could lead to conflict. He may be passionate. His instincts predominate over his reason and his senses supersede or distort his feelings, so his relationships are often jerky and abrupt. He would do well to find an activity that could channel his enormous potential. That will keep him from giving up on love.
Travis Barker’s view of love and his partner is distorted by the filter of his dreams and ideals. He goes from disillusionment to disappointment, becoming infatuated with unavailable people or getting involved with weak and unreliable characters. His youth will therefore be an emotionally unstable period, full of conflict, breakups, and abandonment. Maturity should help him to resolve the inner conflict that’s responsible for these disappointments. If he can see and accept his partner as they really are, he will be able to revive the love he needs to ensure his emotional wellness.
You have the fiery, importunate nature of a fervent lover. Indeed, affairs of the heart are one of your main purposes in life. Your personal charm and magnetism are compellingly seductive; unfortunately, your attempts at conquest do not always lead to the fulfillment and satisfaction of your desires. Due to your impulsiveness and impatience to initiate new encounters, your approach to those you are attracted to may sometimes lack tact and delicacy. As a result of the foregoing, it may be somewhat difficult for Travis Barker to maintain stable and harmonious relationships. Indeed, his emotional behavior is subject to a conflict between his quest for love and his need to satisfy his lust. His outpourings of affection and his 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 he may feel unrequited or unfulfilled. This inner contradiction is a sign of his tendency to derive pleasure from suffering – either his own or that of his partner. The relationship thus becomes the setting for a sort of power struggle, weakening it as a source of psychological equilibrium. Nevertheless, Travis Barker could sublimate this difficulty through artistic expression.
Cautious and reserved, Travis Barker is sometimes unwilling to open himself to others if he is not sure of being accepted. He will always hang back somewhat from his emotional urges, parceling out his expressions of affection, because he has learned – sometimes at his expense – that even the most harmonious relationships require some compromise. For Travis, “good fences make good neighbors,” and well-marked boundaries can prevent future suffering. Thus, even when he is in love, he remains fairly circumspect. When he finds himself attracted to a partner, he privately engages in a careful analysis of their personality and life story, endeavoring to know them profoundly, to see whether he is likely to be able to share his life and future with them. As a result of his sensitivity, Travis has a profound affinity for all of the arts. Music, literature, painting, and graphic arts are likely to enrich his existence and make it pleasant. He could progress in any career in which balance, order, and practicality predominate.
You have a romantic imagination, soaring with idealism, dreams, and poetry. I am emotive and hypersensitive, making me especially vulnerable emotionally, since I am sometimes overwhelmed by my feelings and affects. Although I seek an ideal soulmate, a partner with whom I could maintain blissful, smooth relations, I am sometimes met with disillusionment. Because my rather excessive sensitivity and my need to merge with the other are deep and powerful enough, they can submerge my judgment and discernment, so I sometimes form extremely intense bonds too quickly with individuals who are not appropriate partners in many ways. When I meet someone, I fall under the enchantment of my dream of ideal love and cannot keep myself from delighting in a reverie of future romance, placing the other on a pedestal. Early on in the relationship, I yield to another of my characteristic urges and lose myself in the individual who is so dear to me, melding with them, only to awaken one morning and find myself as if in the arms of a stranger, greatly astounded and disappointed. Actually, my psyche is constructed in such a way as to make my sensitivity a function of the environment, in many cases; it follows the flow of momentary emotions and impressions. Before I take on any major commitments, I should make a conscious effort to evaluate the relationship realistically, and see whether the person really reciprocates my intense love, for I may merely be in love with the mirage of an ideal partner. My tendency to believe in my illusions may mark me as an easy prey for people with bad intentions. It would be a good idea for me to find a different object for my affections, or a form of sublimation, because I tend to be so disappointed by my great emotional investments. The delicacy and subtlety of my imagination procure artistic refinement for me, and I love the arts, music, and literature, which could all be good sources of emotional involvement and fulfillment. Because my sensitivity also makes it easy for me to empathize with the psychological or social difficulties my peers are struggling with, I might also find it rewarding to commit myself to social work.
Mental and Intellect:
Curious, skeptical, and pragmatic, Travis Barker 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.
Travis 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.
