Capone is more rigid and dogmatic than he realizes. His approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Al Capone takes his own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if he is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Al Capone may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to him. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Al may tenaciously cling to his grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
His overall outlook on life is serious, and Al Capone may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his step!
The conflict between spiritual needs and ideals versus material desires or limitations of the "real world" is one of Al's ongoing challenges. It may be hard for Al Capone to sort out his true values, especially when he is enmeshed in the demands of mundane life. Times of retreat, isolation, meditation and prayer could be helpful to Capone in this regard. Finding inner strength through spirituality and attunement to a higher source is ultimately the answer for him.
He is inclined to be somewhat timid and afraid to start something on his own, preferring that someone else tell him what to do. Al Capone can easily be deterred from pursuing his goals, which makes his advancement in life rather slow.

The direction Al Capone needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Al Capone has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that he is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Al Capone needs to foster mature self-discipline, self-control, and personal responsibility.
