Because he is practical and well grounded, as described in the previous chapter, and also very devoted and nurturing (as described below), Albert Ayler is a source of solace and emotional support for other people. However, Ayler tends to be much moodier and more emotional than his rather solid, steady, down-to-earth appearance would suggest.
Albert has powerful emotional attachments to the past, his family, his childhood, places he associates with safety and security, and his beginnings. It is very important to Ayler to maintain a connection with his roots and heritage and keep family bonds strong. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, Ayler tends to cling to whatever is dear to him - be it a person, a familiar place, or a cherished possession.

Albert Ayler has a very strong need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, and much of his life centers on his home. He is more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society. Kindness, consideration and tenderness are more meaningful to Albert Ayler than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
He is primarily emotional and his views are often dominated by his feelings and his own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic or abstract principles. It is difficult for him to judge situations fairly and objectively because his personal sympathies and loyalties usually factor in. Albert Ayler takes things very personally and sometimes builds a wall around himself to shield himself from pain and rejection. Albert Ayler feels rather shy and vulnerable at heart. He also tends to be moody and experiences frequent mood swings. Albert Ayler needs to have a place and time in his life to withdraw, introspect, dream and replenish himself; otherwise Albert Ayler becomes cranky and unhappy with those around him.
Albert Ayler functions in an instinctive, irrational manner and likes to immerse himself in creative activities where he can express his feelings, imagination and instincts. Ayler often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Albert Ayler also has a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
His compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are Ayler's strong points. His faults include an inability to let go of the past and move forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency for self-pity when facing hardship.
The urge to learn and to communicate is essential to Albert Ayler, and he expresses himself very well through writing, teaching or sharing ideas and information. Ayler is persuasive and fluent with language.
Restless and inquisitive, Albert enjoys being mobile and taking short trips and excursions in order to see for himself what is going on in the world around him.
Albert Ayler is loving and well loved by others, and has a strong need for relationships that offer kindness, friendship and affection. His artistic and creative powers are also well developed and Albert does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Ayler, as are his personal appearance and attractiveness.
While Albert Ayler deeply appreciates beauty and has a great desire for love, he is in no way frivolous or indiscriminate in his affections. Ayler can be very frugal and sparing with both money and emotions.
Realistic and practical, Albert Ayler sets goals for himself that are modest enough for him to actually achieve. He is able to tackle long, difficult projects and see them through, for Ayler possesses self-discipline, concentration and perseverance. Albert Ayler also has a strong sense of responsibility and is very conscientious about fulfilling his obligations. Ayler often does things because he feels it is expected of him.
Inwardly he is zealous and fanatical, though he may hide his personal desires and intentions, as well as the intensity of his feelings. He is driven by a deep inner sense of destiny and mission and an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition. Albert is infatuated with power, incredibly willful and stubbornly fixated on achieving greatness or being someone Special. Albert Ayler tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma, and he often seeks to emulate them. Albert has potential for tremendous good or tremendous evil.
His vitality is very strong and he is likely to be a workaholic. If Albert Ayler is not careful, he may work so hard that he becomes exhausted, leaving himself open to physical breakdown. Albert Ayler also has a strong drive to win and to dominate others.
Ayler depends a great deal on other people's reactions to him and rarely acts until he sees how he affects others. Albert Ayler must learn to be direct and straightforward, rather than evasive or manipulative. Albert should also learn to rely heavily on his hunches.
