paragraphs concern the study of MARSHA's personality, as
induced by the positions of the planets and Rising sign. Some of the
character traits mentioned may seem completely contradictory and incompatible.
This is because the rough-hewn personality is a rarity.
individuals are made up of a subtle orchestration of many different tones
or aspects. However, serious introspection or detailed analysis should
make it possible to distinguish the opposing or diverging images comprising
MARSHA's overall character, and perhaps, in time, find the best and most
harmonious way to integrate them.
intuitive (to use C.G. Jung's terms), MARSHA is open to the reality of
the world, objects, and others. She has a special duality to her mind,
which is made up of equal parts of intellectual resources and sensitivity,
giving her great intuition and humanism. As a function of this latter,
she has a great sense her fellow woman, and the oracular art of divining
people's unconscious wishes and motivations - in fact, her advice is often
sought. In material terms, it gives her a talent for locating lost objects,
and a spirit of discovery and invention. Overall, MARSHA welcomes the signs
arriving from the outer world in a positive and liberal way, and even incites
them to promise more than they can
However, when something does not satisfy her, she has the ability to cheer
herself up rapidly, and is quick to discover whatever positive aspects
it may present. This involves a process of readaptation which requires
formidable ego transformations, and they are the challenge for MARSHA.
It is up to her to renew herself, to behave in such a way as to drain her
environment of fearsome or threatening aspects.
is usually perceived as an idealist. Deep within herself, she senses the
presence of a " new life. " It is the crucible of her ideal and all her
hopes. The " new life " may assume the garb of various philosophies of
liberation; whatever they may be, they all endeavor to revitalize alienated
modern woman, oppressed and downtrodden by Western civilization. However,
in her striving to free herself and her fellow women from a social contract
based on the power of sheer lucre and corrupt lobbies, MARSHA displays
a singular inclination to depend upon the very social forces she intends
to topple. The reason for this is that, because she is quite sociable,
the only thing she instinctively grasps profoundly is social action and
of her own personality is vague or even negative. In fact, her grandiose
personal gestures are motivated by a need to hide her unavowed feelings
of inferiority and, at times, her fear of strong personalities. But she
is above all an idealist. Hope is the prime mover of her spirit, and she
is continually traveling along the axis of the hope/despair polarity. As
she applies herself to ignoring whatever is impervious to her aspirations,
MARSHA should acquire some certainty of what is still possible - for her
and the world. In fact, in relation to her ideal, MARSHA behaves realistically,
although others are unable to perceive her realism because she expresses
herself in such an unconventional and eccentric fashion.
passionately committed to the quest and research she has initiated, and
will pursue it with determination if not fury. She judges and defines herself
in opposition to society, and human relations are vital to the evolution
of her personality. An elitist, she does not believe in human equality,
preferring individuality. She seeks a way to unite them without abolishing
their differences. She would like to create a utopian community with no
ideological imperatives, a self-ruled entity which would recognize its
own spirit as the only authority. Her definition of friendship is spiritual
love, because it establishes a subtle, vast, and delicate web of bonds,
not only between people, but between people and things. She imagines a
vow of true friendship as a form of freedom which reassures the freedom
of others, instead of threatening it. However, she should become aware
that this ideal harmony, which is often rather difficult to put into practice,
sometimes hides an unavowed fear of deep commitment to another person.
For this reason, her love life is among the more erratic.
and giving to the world in general, in certain special cases she may become
cold or even distant. She is determined to elude any perceived threat to
her freedom, and picks her way through a world of paradoxes and contradictions.
Her sensuality is associated with her imagination, and she loves people
not for what they are in reality, but for the way her imagination transfigures
them. The result is many a cruel disillusionment. But when she falls in
love, it's for real.
finds her work extremely rewarding. Daily life and routine activities are
excellent sources of self-fulfillment for her.
tends to live in an imaginary world; the distant and abstract sometimes
interests her more than what is right at hand and realistic.
time of MARSHA's birth, her Rising Sign was located in Scorpio (the Scorpion),
while the Sun was passing through the constellation of Aquarius (the Water
Bearer). A summary of the various clues mentioned above provide MARSHA's
personality profile; the following key words distill the essence of her
character and indicate certain contradictions which may be sources
- Independence - Charisma - Rebelliousness - Dignity - Originality - Shrewdness
- Fluctuation - Concentration - Irritability - Optimism - Inventive spirit
- Common sense - Sense of paradox.
and almost severe, lively and irritable, rebellious and haughty, MARSHA
is bound to have complex and ambiguous relations with other people. She
feels she is an exceptional human being, and her goal is to make her originality
and creativity manifest. Convinced of her superiority and the originality
of her mind, her faith in her solitary and individualistic lifestyle is
never shaken. Her inventive, inquiring mind is much gratified thereby.
Her sense of contradiction and taste for paradox will be a source of trouble
in her relationships with other people. But she is bound to explore new
horizons, far from the beaten track, in the hinterlands of invention and
in the three days prior to the New Moon's appearance, MARSHA is said to
be of the " Balsamic Moon " type. This soli-lunar configuration gives her
a spiritualistic character closely attached to generous humanitarian ideals.
She is sometimes sorely tried to limit herself to the narrow scope of individual
ambition. Indeed, she aims for a humanitarian ideal which would include
the outcasts and the unfortunate: she fervently hopes the meek will inherit
the Earth. To bring about this ideal, she is likely to seize every resource
placed at her disposal: physical effort, money (if she has it), speech,
her writings, and her poetic or artistic talents. However, she should be
wary of her unconscious guilt feelings. Actually, there is no reason for
her to devote herself to her mission entirely; a simple daily effort should
suffice to express her philosophy and free her conscience. Usually, the
three days preceding the New Moon will be time in the monthly lunar cycle
most favorable to her activities and her general energy level.
the influence of Jupiter dominating her birth chart, MARSHA has undeniable
social ambition and many resources with which to achieve it (see CAREER
POTENTIAL). Relatively confident in herself and her abilities, she has
the potential to be a leader and chief. It therefore seems probable that
she will rise to success. However, she should question herself about what
sort of success she seeks, and at what price. She should be aware that
the taste of victory may be bitter if she finds she has sacrificed other
aspects of life, like love, friendship, or creativity, to obtain it. She
must consciously select what she is willing to invest in order to secure
honor, money, and social consideration.
