A Prince/ss of Darkness
You are a royal of the court of darkness. You delight in horror, in hearing terrible news about other people. You have no shame about wanting others to fail, and you will do what is needed to further your own goals, no matter who gets hurt in the process. You smile at tragedy, delight in ominous reports and wish only for terrible things on your enemies. You may have people you love and respect. After all, you are still a human beings and love is part of the equation. But you would throw it all away for some real, actual POWER. You wish you could control others, manipulate and direct as you like. You hold on to dark information and secrets, even years, waiting for the best time to use it. You may seem kind, but that's to further your goals. You may seem honest, but you will lie at the drop of a hat. You revel in your dark impulses, and nothing will sway you from their temptation.
Yin and Yang
You are a living example of that ancient Chinese symbol, the Yin/Yang principle. You are a mix of dark and light, a chaotic storm of impulses and emotions. It is hard to predict what you might do because you are drawn to both the darkness and the light. This is not an uncommon situation. After all, darkness and light are both present in most people, and it can be hard to tell them apart. Sometimes you feel and understand the delight of dark, rebellious deeds against a society you may despise. At other times, you want to help others, heal their wounds, and solve their problems. You move between these two places, visiting both but living in neither. Most people live on this balance, forever alternating until one side draws a bit more than the other - and the balance is broken. We would counsel you to keep yours and watch your own actions. When it seems like you are tipping too far, stop and adjust. Keep the balance right, and your life will probably be full of joy. Unbalance yourself, and you might get into extremes that are just not right for you.
A Knight for Goodness
You are a positive force in the world. A true champion for light and goodness. This isn't out of some naivety, you are wise to the darkness in the world. It's just that you CHOOSE to be good, because that's how you'd like to be treated and how you believe the world should be. You detest lying. You find success only alluring when it is done for humanitarian (or animal) goals. Money and power not only do not impress you, but often revolt you. People shouldn't have so much power over other people. Communication should be direct, equal and respectful. Your heart aches for all the people being mistreated and abused out there in the world, and you would help them all if you could. You find ways to help those around you as best you can and perhaps do some volunteer work to feel like you're helping in some way.
A Little Dark
You might consider yourself a bit of a dark person. There is SOME darkness in you, dark impulses that call to you sometimes. A desire to lie for the hell of it, or sabotage someone you dislike. Most of the time you don't heed these impulses, because you KNOW they are wrong. However, you cannot deny the little rush of pleasure you get at these dark thoughts. Sometimes it's just enough to have them to feel that pleasure. Sometimes, it takes a little mischief. That doesn't mean you're a bad person by any stretch of the imagination. We all have dark impulses, and we all have a bit of darkness in us. In you, it is perhaps a bit above average, a probable result of life experience that was not kind to you, or gave you hard feelings about other people. This may be a temporary period and may pass. Alternatively, it may grow into deeper darkness, and so we would say to you: beware.
