"...Romantic vision and the gift of imagination
You are one of the world's true romantics, for your intensely active imagination must always inject into ordinary circumstances an aura of meaning, potential and purpose without which you find daily life inconsequential and sometimes suffocating. The great strength of your nature lies in your well-developed relationship to the creative power of the unconscious, which allows you to look into the future and envisage potentials which are not immediately apparent in the present. Because of this, you tend to see opportunities which others miss. You have a habit of living mostly in the future, always looking toward the next project and the next stage of the journey. Yours is a temperament which will never stagnate, because whatever you have accomplished, it is experienced not as a final achievement but as a temporary stage on the way to something bigger, better, more enriching and more meaningful..."
"...The romantic vision rejects life's limitations
However, because of your emphasis on the imaginative and intuitive side of life, you run the risk of forgetting worldly limits. You tend to be on rather poor terms with day-to-day reality and its responsibilities and demands, because these thwart the vision that means so much to you. You may resent the boredom of a routine job, feeling secretly that you are entitled to something more special and glamourous; or you may dislike having to bind yourself to domestic obligations because these stop the flow of the imagination. You may also resist having to select one thing to which you must apply yourself, preferring to feel that you have many potentials open in the future; and this could result in you becoming a "jack of all trades" who dabbles in everything and produces nothing lasting. This is the "one day when I grow up..." syndrome, which may be appropriate in youth but which begins to feel rather uncomfortable with the passing of the years..."
"...You will sooner or later need to make better friends with the physical world. This effort can be rewarding and exciting because your sensual nature, although often repressed or neglected, is powerful and capable of great intensity and pleasure, and your uncannily accurate intuition can also be applied to practical matters to ensure your success. Any achievement of a material kind can be enormously rewarding to you, and you possess a rare capacity to respond to nature and to the beauty of the physical world - if you will only stop running away from what you call "lower" or "unimportant". In very personal matters such as sexual expression your unease with the body can also make you shy and awkward, and here too there might be a promise of much greater fulfilment if you can allow yourself to experience the powerful demands of the instincts which you sometimes fear. Your perception of physical reality may be too negative, and it is possible that family attitudes in your early life have contributed to your undervaluing of yourself in this realm of life. If you can learn the art of being an ordinary mortal in a sometimes unromantic world, then your unusual and powerful imaginative gifts will always bring you new adventures as well as earning you concrete rewards. ..."
"...Interest in people and need for social involvement dominate
You thrive on being where all the interesting people are, where ideas are being born and new trends started, and where you can be seen, heard, and part of what in American slang is called "where it's all happening". Whether your interests are more cerebral (political or philosophical), or concerned with cultural events and trends (the latest best- selling novel, the new play, the innovative opera production), or an expression of more extraverted activities (sport, fashion), you are always one of the first to take up new things and people, and one of the last to leave the party. You genuinely like people - provided they are not too depressing and refrain from smearing theiremotional problems all over the happy atmosphere - and you are interested in what others have to say; and generally people like you too, for you possess a happy spirit that generates its own excitement and is open-hearted and tolerant of others' eccentricities. Beneath the surface of your apparently light-hearted and optimistic approach to life you are not a shallow person, and you know the value and strength of friendships and social bonds...."
"...Humanitarian concerns deepen your
You are not merely sociable; you are socially concerned, and people matter to you not only because they provide you with pleasure (a convivial evening with friends can always relax you and make you happy). They also matter from a broader, more humanitarian point of view. You believe in the rights of others, and your vision of human nature is a positive one, full of potential. You are interested in fostering growth or progress in society in some way, whether in the educational, cultural or spiritual realm, and you combine a facility for working cooperatively with an ideology or personal philosophy that aims to help others on some level. You are a diplomatic person, and have managed to master the art of being able to put forth original and innovative ideas while appearing to be completely nonaggressive. You make full and excellent use of the royal "we", although for you "we" means the group. Thus the group usually believe that they, rather than you, came up with the idea first. Because you are neither arrogant nor self-seeking, you can permit this without feeling demeaned, as long as the objective is reached; and therefore you are a formidable person when it comes to organisation work and the manipulation of group dynamics..."
"...What you are not so good at is difficult emotional confrontations. There is an ethereal, airy and butterfly-like quality about you which some people might call elusive. You can be delightful and charming and witty, but you tend to fade away and vanish in the nicest possible way if too many demands are placed upon you. You like a lot of people a lot of the time, not one person with intensity all of the time; and you tend to keep the emotional doorways and fire escapes clear because you are fundamentally restless at heart and become easily bored - by routines, routine ideas, and routine people..."
"...A natural gift for handling the public
Whether you admit it or not, you love being in the public eye. You have an instinctive feeling for what constitutes a good performance and know how to handle a group, for you combine natural acting ability with elegance of expression; and your ideas are strongly flavoured with whatever is new, lively and currently relevant. Even if you are not actively ambitious, these qualities make you sought after in your work. You are not materially grasping, and your ambition is not readily identifiable in the ordinary way. But you enjoy expressing what you believe in, and also thrive on the feeling that you are needed, that you have opened people's minds a little, that you have brought some quality of beauty or happiness into their lives.
It is hard for anyone to penetrate past your public face, for the pleasing, friendly and intelligent personality which you project is automatic and never fails you. Whatever you are like when you wake up in the morning, few people ever see it, for you not only need to be liked by people; it is a matter of ethics. You like to be bright and light and positive, and you have considerable pride about dumping your personal problems onto others. After all, to your mind, they have enough of their own. You would do well in fields such as teaching, counselling, group organising or media; or even theatre or film, for you have a natural aptitude for playing to the unconscious needs of the audience and offering them what they did not even realise they wanted. Thus you depend upon others for your livelihood, and you prefer it that way; for your work and your feeling of belonging to a larger human family are inextricably bound together..."
"...A hidden need for solitude causes feelings of loneliness
In contrast to the sociable, articulate and outgoing qualities of your personality, there is another protagonist in your inner psychic drama. This hidden side of you comprises all those qualities which you have had to exclude from your conscious values and behaviour in order to pursue your fulfilling personal and professional involvements with others. Your shadow-side is not the humanitarian and humanist that you are, for this part of you actively dislikes people, preferring solitude and quiet, and finding a group of more than three rather strenuous, irritating and even boring. It is hard for you to express this antisocial shadow, for this might mean offending others by withdrawing too harshly from them; and it would also mean questioning your belief that the welfare of others is more important than your own..."
in early life leave scars and feelings of mistrust
Some secret loneliness or unhappiness springing from your childhood has made you a good deal more suspicious about other people's motives than you appear. Probably one or both of your parents was unable to express genuine affection and warmth, and made love conditional upon good behaviour; and your shadow-side does not trust others, believing them to be out for what they can get. This dark side of your personality always looks for the strings and conditions attached to any offering from another person, and is determined to defend your more vulnerable feelings lest you be hurt or used as you felt you were early in life.
You hold within you a dark and rather negative vision of life, which might permit happiness for others but never for you. Thus there is something very inconsistent about your usually positive philosophy, for you cannot seem to apply it to yourself. Because of your unconscious defensiveness, you tend to withhold your real feelings from people, and you are prone to accumulating a certain amount of unspoken resentment because you try to please too much of the time while secretly feeling you are being taken advantage of. Thus your friendly sociability sometimes serves as a mask and a protection against spells of deep depression and loneliness, to which you are curiously prone. Your shadow expects others to reject you, which reflects not only a very destructive image of other people, but, more importantly, reflects your own deep denigration of your worth. Try to face your spells of negative feeling, for you are a moodier and more melancholy person than you like to admit; and you tend to let others take advantage of you, which you call being needed, because you are afraid of rejection and loneliness. Perhaps you need to learn to do a little more rejecting yourself, rather than surrounding yourself with people you do not feel deeply drawn to just for the sake of company..."
"...A psychologically absent figure
It seems that, on a deep level, you did not know your father at all. It is on the inner level that this experience has occurred, although your father may have actually been physically absent in your childhood as well; but even if he was present, it is on the inner level that you have been "unfathered". There is a sense of emptiness or lack in connection with your experience of your father, and there is as a result a kind of lost quality about you yourself. No matter how much you achieve in life, you are a perpetual observer watching it all unfold on a cinema screen, without a sense of direct involvement in your own life. This rather lonely and lost quality has its roots in your childhood, and it is not wholly negative; for you have learned to develop a quality of detachment and self-containment which is of great value. But you need a great deal of encouragement and approval from others, because you were somehow not "real" to your father in early life and are therefore not always "real" to yourself now..."
"...Selflessness and self-sacrifice
The subjective image of your mother portrayed in your birth horoscope is a poignant one. There is much of the mythic or archetypal Suffering Woman contained in this image, and probably your mother experienced many difficult circumstances in her life - either in her own childhood or in her marriage, or through illness or financial difficulty, or through the necessity of sacrificing her most cherished desires in order to look after others. Although your mother may have made sacrifices willingly because of her love and need of her family, nevertheless you have within you considerable guilt about her unhappiness, and a deep unconscious conviction that you are in some way responsible for redeeming her sacrifices through your own self-sacrifice. This places a great inner obligation on you, which you may carry without realising it, yet which has probably led you to choose a field of work where you have to deal with and help the pain or confusion of others. The experience of passive suffering and sacrifice which you have inherited through your relationship with your mother gives you a deep well of compassion, sensitivity and responsiveness to the emotional needs of others. This receptivity is a gift, which can be expressed either in an artistic field where sensitivity to the moods of the audience is required, or in the helping professions where it is so obviously needed..."
"...A tendency to excess
Your motto in love is that more is better. This means more romance, more candlelight, more courtly declarations of affection, and, perhaps, more partners. You may justify your profligacy by means of an ideology which says that people should not possess each other, or a spiritual vision which says that you need the right soul-mate, or an aesthetic ideal which tells you that your present companion is not quite perfect. Or you may simply be honest about your love of variety. But you are going to have certain difficulties if you make the decision to commit yourself to one man for a lifetime. It is not that you cannot love; for, if anything, you love to excess, and throw your whole self into it. But you crave adventure too, and you are deeply idealistic about love; and time and familiarity are the enemies of such a romantic spirit. No relationship, however passionate, will automatically remain mysterious and challenging if you do not nurture its unpredictability by frequent holidays and travel with your man, frequent absences from the domestic front with its endless responsibilities, and frequent admonitions to yourself not to take your partner for granted. Otherwise you might be faithful from a sense of honour and idealism, but not from real inclination. It would be better to be honest about your own restlessness, for there are many levels on which your adventurous spirit can be lived out, and some of them can include a stable relationship and do not necessitate deceit and betrayal. But it would be better not to repress this side of yourself, for then you are really asking for trouble. You are more prone than many people to falling in love at first sight, at the wrong time, in the wrong place, and with someone other than the person with whom you came in the door..."

Marilyn Monroe's Biography
Birth Name: Norma Jean Mortenson
American actress, outstandingly famous as a sex symbol and subject of a lush nude calendar, photographed on 5/27/1949.
Marilyn was born in the charity ward of the Los Angeles General Hospital. Both her mom and her grandmom suffered from mental illness, probably manic depression. She maintained that one of her earliest memories was that of her mom trying to smother her with a pillow. Her mom paid a couple $25 a week to take care of her and she lived with these foster parents until she was seven. After her mom was hospitalized with a breakdown, Norma Jeane was placed in an orphanage and a series of foster homes, where she was sexually assaulted several times. She later said she had been raped when she was 11.
She left school with a youthful and short marriage at the age of 15 to merchant marine James Dougherty. Only 5' 1", she matured early into a shapely 110 lbs. Deeply insecure about her abilities, she was chronically late. When astrologer Richard Ideman remarked that New York was a lonely town, she said, "Any town is lonely when you don't know who you are." She had, nonetheless, a sly wit; once asked by a reporter what she wore to bed, she replied "Chanel No.5." Her drug and alcohol dependency was long-standing and well known among her intimates.
Marilyn made a second marriage to baseball player Joe DiMaggio, then to writer Arthur Miller (a NY Times article gave June 29, 1956, 7:21 PM in White Plains, NY). She was romantically involved at one time or another to Marlon Brando, Frank Sinatra, Yves Montand and director Elia Kazan.
Hundreds of biographies have been written about her by everyone from her lovers to her plumber. One lesbian relationship was related in a biography by her maid.
Historians find no documented evidence that Marilyn had an affair with Robert Kennedy, though there is credible evidence that she was intimate with John Kennedy, starting sometime in the 1950s. By the '60s, the relationships was so obvious that aides warned him to be more discreet. During the Thousand Days of his administration they continued to meet, though not at the White House, and she told her friends about the trysts.
She met Robert Kennedy in February 1962 and many reports state that he soon shared her favors. By early summer she was telling friends that he would marry her. They were together at the home of Peter Lawford in late June and then, suddenly, both brothers cut her off and she was told to not contact either of them again. She began trying, without success, to reach Bobby by phone. She slumped into a deep depression, survived a drug overdose and told friends she had had an abortion. A close friend later recalled that "she looked like death."
The gossip continued for years that she was intimate with both Kennedy men and that they were involved in her death. She possessed handwritten notes from Bobby and had kept a diary. She was privy to numerous secrets about the Kennedys and their underworld connections. Moreover, she was unstable and might talk at any time. A world-famed celebrity, the actress had the power to do incalculable damage to the Kennedy image.
Monroe died of a drug overdose on 8/05/1962, Hollywood, CA. The prior night she had called Lawford about 10:00 PM, expressing fear that she had taken too many sleeping pills. She died sometime that night and about 3:00 AM, her housekeeper called her psychiatrist. She was found in her bed, nude, with a telephone in her hand. At 4:25 AM the housekeeper called the police. Her diary and personal notes were never found.
