He is very sensitive, cautious, and shy about showing others his feelings. Though he may love and care for someone a great deal, Arnaud Boetsch rarely expresses his feelings openly and freely. Very often Boetsch's love for someone is expressed by his wish to help him, do something tangible to benefit him or serve him in some way.
It is also difficult for him to receive warmth, affection or appreciation, for he often feels that he does not really deserve it or that "they do not really mean it". Boetsch may therefore come across as rather cool and aloof - much more so than he feels.
A deeply ingrained critical attitude often makes Arnaud difficult to live with. Arnaud Boetsch needs to learn to be gentler and less of a perfectionist with others and with himself.
He is emotionally expressive and often dramatizes his feelings by acting them out or blowing them out of proportion. Arnaud Boetsch cannot hide his instinctive emotional reactions to people or situations, and he does not make any pretenses about his personal sympathies or antipathies.
Arnaud Boetsch has a childlike openness and playfulness that is very appealing to others but sometimes gets him into trouble, as Arnaud takes risks on an impulse or a whim.
There is a side to Arnaud Boetsch that loves comfort and the easy life, and unless other factors in his chart indicate strong drive and ambition, Boetsch can be lazy and overly permissive with himself. He enjoys being taken care of and pampered, and self-indulgence is always a temptation for Boetsch. If Arnaud's parents made the unfortunate mistake of indulging him too much as a child, this may be a very hard habit to break. Arnaud Boetsch can be so softhearted and affectionate that it is hard to say no to him. Eating too many sweets is a vice Arnaud is particularly prone to.
He is tolerant and forgiving and always ready to overlook mistakes and give others a second chance. Arnaud Boetsch expects, and draws out, the best from people and he enjoys making others comfortable and happy. Because of his emotional generosity, his life is rich with friends, and often financial blessings as well.
His emotions are very intense, but often hidden. Like a volcano, one minute Arnaud Boetsch seems quite peaceful and the next, he is exploding with great force and unexpected fury. The intensity of his reactions often surprises even him. Arnaud has tremendous zeal and tends to be an emotional fanatic about things he cares about. His feelings and desires can be so compelling that he does things against his better judgment and reason. Boetsch can also be very manipulative, in a subtle way. His personal relationships are deeply emotional, passionate and often stormy and painful as well.
His love feelings and desires are easily aroused but he may find it difficult to sustain his romantic interest in relationships after the initial, exciting "chase and conquest". Arnaud Boetsch enjoys a dynamic partner with a strong independent streak, and he does not like things to become too peaceful or predictable in the love arena. Arnaud wants to see sparks fly once in awhile, even if it means instigating a fight.
Arnaud Boetsch often hides his affection, or finds his feelings difficult to express or get across to the person he loves. Being openly affectionate and trusting often does not seem safe to Arnaud. He may feel his love will not be appreciated or reciprocated. Arnaud Boetsch may get involved in secret love relationships or fall in love with a person who is quite unavailable to him. Love and sacrifice often seem to go hand in hand for Arnaud Boetsch - i.e. having to give something up to be with the one he loves, or having to relinquish a person or an aspect of an important love relationship.
Intimacy does not come easily to Arnaud Boetsch and he may appear cold or unfeeling to others due to his emotional reserve and caution. Perhaps due to painful relationships and separations in his early life, Boetsch does not trust others very easily and it takes a long time to break down all of his barriers and defenses. He may feel that he has few friends or people that really care about him. Arnaud Boetsch needs to learn to value and love himself more and to express his appreciation for others more openly.
He is prone to getting involved in highly intense, even obsessive relationships - "fatal attractions", so to speak. At its darkest, this urge for intensity in the personal arena may compel Arnaud Boetsch to choose friends or mates who are rather dangerous or dishonorable characters with a penchant for manipulating and inflicting pain on their "loved ones". On the other hand, Boetsch may be tempted to use his own sexuality or charm to play the same sort of game, to use love or friendship as a bargaining chip or to gain power over others. Even if his intentions are basically good, Arnaud Boetsch will find that his closest relationships are rather tumultuous affairs in which some rather unsavory aspects of his character (such as jealousy and the desire to dominate or to be a victim) keep surfacing. These are qualities that need to be understood and ultimately outgrown.
