Tenderhearted and sympathetic to an unusual degree, Aristide Briand has an understanding of other people's feelings and needs which borders on telepathy. Aristide Briand is extremely compassionate and cannot bear to see any fellow creature - human or animal - suffer. Because of his kindness and nonjudgmental attitude, people suffering from pain or confusion are drawn to Briand for help, which he readily gives. Sometimes Briand's soft-heartedness is taken advantage of.
He is a gentle, poetic soul and has a great love and affinity for music. Because many of his feelings are vague and he cannot easily verbalize how he experiences life, music seems a natural language for Briand. He is also extremely romantic and often "in love with love".
Briand works well with the public and has an instinct for what the public wants and will respond to. Having a "nest" is not especially important to Aristide, and he may invest more of his emotional energy into his career or public life than in his private life. He is likely to be engaged in providing and caring for others in a professional capacity.
Gregarious and fun loving, he is always out to have a good time. Aristide Briand tends to "play now, pay later" and is prone to overspend, overeat, drink too much, and in general overdo, and even more so when in the company of others. It is hard for Aristide Briand to say no, especially when Briand's emotions or appetites are involved. Generous to a fault, he is likely to be very free both with money and with affection.
There is another side to Aristide Briand as well, a rather introverted, self-contained, even pessimistic side which tempers his good cheer and generosity, as discussed below.
Some rather acute fears of being excluded, rejected, left out in the cold or separated from loved ones can make Aristide Briand either extremely cautious about getting close to people or clingy toward whoever gives him any warmth or security. Aristide Briand tends to withhold and clamp down on many of his feelings and craves nurturing and security, perhaps feeling that they are unacceptable or will never be satisfied. Learning to be open and trust others to nurture him is important to him. His earliest years, especially Briand's relationships with his mother, will determine whether Aristide Briand will overcome his fears or retreat behind a mask of self-sufficiency and indifference.
In addition to Aristide's rather introverted, serious or self-contained side, he has a wild streak and urge for emotional freedom that breaks through erratically. Aristide Briand craves both stability and excitement, and the conflict between these two impulses can make Briand rather tense and irritable. However, they can also balance each other out. His freer and unpredictable side will now be described.
Aristide Briand craves excitement, change and discovery, and cannot tolerate a routine or lifestyle that offers little in the way of surprise or challenge. Excitable, spontaneous and enthusiastic about anything new, he may be perceived by others as being too impulsive, especially in personal relationships. It is not easy for Aristide Briand to make or keep commitments, since he does not know how he will be feeling from one day to the next. Emotional freedom is very important to Briand. His domestic life may be very unstable - but Briand likes it that way.
Aristide Briand has a dreamy nature and an inclination to be influenced or led easily by other people. Aristide looks for the perfect mate and dream of fulfillment. Aristide Briand must learn to deal with his extreme idealism and to face life a little more realistically.
Tremendously softhearted and sympathetic, Aristide Briand gives very selflessly and devotedly to those he loves and often allows others to become overly dependent upon him. More compassionate than passionate, Aristide Briand may become romantically involved with a person because he or she expresses a need for love, rather than out of mutual pleasure or attraction.
He is drawn to sensitive, imaginative, gentle souls - poets, musicians, dreamers - or to someone Aristide feels he can have a deep spiritual relationship with. Aristide Briand idealizes love and has a very beautiful, romantic vision of what love relationships can be.
Aristide is attracted to foreigners, exotic places, traveling and people who can expand his horizons, teach him something, or show him places and worlds he has never experienced before. Sharing a philosophy or ideal with his love partner is important to him.
Moreover, Aristide Briand feels love and kinship for people everywhere, not only for his own family, nationality, or group. Finding similarities and making links between people from differing backgrounds or with different perspectives is a gift of his.
He is romantic and amorous and has a well-developed sexual nature. Aristide expresses his feelings openly, but sometimes could feel hurt if people do not respond to him. Aristide Briand also has a strong drive to express himself in artistic ways.
