^^this guy has the misfortune of being Mr. Collins. that’s right, “the dreaded cousin, who is to inherit.” any woman in her right mind would want to vomit at the mere mention of his name let alone having to listen to him drone on and on about Fordyce’s sermons (except Charlotte but we’ll get to her later). but what makes this dude so fracking annoying?
he’s an aries male.
their motto is i am, and after it you can hear the audible whisper awesome…i am awesome? yea, he thinks like that.
the bright side to this guy is that he’s positive, energetic, confident, ambitious and outspoken. but he’s also impatient, selfish, foolhardy and cannot take the word “no.”
the most obvious scene where this takes place is when Mr. Collins proposes to Elizabeth and she has the audacity to say n-o. so he takes it that she doesn’t mean it. oh but wait, she does. so then he runs to the first girl who will give him any attention and marries her. but it’s not just anyone, he marries Lizzy's best friend! impulsive and rude? when an aries male feels slighted it's like being beaten by a battering ram: they will never let you forget it. exhibit a, “look how happy my wife is, aren’t you jealous?” ok so he doesn’t exactly say that but you have to admit it sounds an awful lot like that when she’s walking around his new crib.
let’s take a quick moment to analyze his relationship with Lady Catherine. How do you beat a ram? attention, or at least the allusion that you’re giving it. the big L.C. does this well: she gave him a house, she has to approve everything he does (which he takes as approval), and she listens to him blather about his own self importance. I hate this woman but she knows how it goes when you’ve got a ram on your hands!
no one, and i mean no one, likes being right more than an aries. an aries soul is brand new and therefore they will make more social blunders than the rest due to the fact that they only know what’s going on in their own heads. there is no “social conscious,” it’s all individual mind. so, when an aries (especially a male) screws up, he assumes it’s everyone else’s fault and if it is they get to say, “see? i was right!” be prepared because it can be a full blown nananana booboo, i told you so parade or it can be done the Mr. Collins way. a subtle letter may one day be found in your possession after something awful has happened to you or your family. the gist is, he is so glad he doesn’t share your pain that he feels the need to tell you that, and then tell everyone else.
no doubt this guy is a massive jerk but there are some upsides (let’s not screw Charlotte too much). he’s loyal, he’s always good for a laugh (whether at him or with him is up to the individual), and he loves. it may not be overly romantic like a cancer or passionate like a scorpio but it’s better than nothing at all (i’m looking at you aquarians).
so, that’s Mr. Collins!
