In many ways, Andrea Giani contradicts himself! While he enjoys traveling and adventure (as mentioned in the previous chapter), Giani can be very slow to move. Stability and security are as important to him as exploring new worlds. Andrea Giani needs to find a place in his life to express both urges: the impulse to take risks and to go where he has never gone before, and the need for order, predictability, and staying with the tried-and-true.
He is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of his greatest assets. Once Giani's course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
Andrea Giani has a very practical nature; he wants to see concrete, tangible results for his efforts, and he is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of his "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for he has a great love of the physical world and he wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Andrea Giani will work long and persistently, he also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and he wants to enjoy what he has worked for. In fact, Giani can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Andrea Giani also loves the beauty of the natural world and he probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, his needs are simple and he is easy to please. Andrea Giani has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless he is forced to do so. He is not very demanding emotionally, though he does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of his faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon Giani for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, Andrea Giani usually maintains his poise and equanimity. Andrea Giani also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. He makes an excellent parent, especially if he follows his instincts more often than "the experts".
Andrea has three major faults: one is his bullheaded obstinacy. The second is his unwillingness to deviate from his safe, predictable routine. And the third is Giani's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Andrea Giani lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to new horizons.
Andrea Giani has a very dramatic, creative, expressive nature and he loves to perform. Andrea enjoys being the center of attention and he seeks to shine, to excel, and to be outstanding in some unique way. He is very involved in his own creativity and self-expression, and takes great pleasure in developing and using his special talents be they artistic, athletic or intellectual. Andrea Giani has a strong sense of pride.
Andrea Giani aims high, dreams big, and has a tremendous sense of what he is capable of achieving. Overconfidence, grandiosity, lack of humility and/or extreme discontent in modest circumstances may be his faults. Generally, however, Giani's great expectations and enterprising spirit lead to success. Business, especially when there is an element of risk and speculation involved, is ideally suited to Andrea.
Andrea Giani tends to be very impressionable and psychically open, and as a youngster, he may have been dominated in relationships with more forceful personalities. Afraid of confrontation, Giani may have become passive, identified himself as a helpless victim, or tried to achieve his desires in underhanded ways.
Andrea's hypersensitivity to his environment is likely to be a challenge for him in other ways as well. Pollutants, ugliness or dissonance in any form may affect Andrea Giani more than most people.
His physique tends to be sensitive and his vitality may be a bit low. Andrea Giani is very impressionable and somewhat unrealistic. Sometimes his idealism could be confused or impractical, and Giani can be rebellious or else apathetic.
Andrea Giani has a powerful personality and a tendency to run roughshod over others. Andrea tends to inflict his will on them whether or not they are receptive. He is likely to gain respect from others through the demonstration of physical strength and bravery.
