In addition to Barrett's strong personal loyalties and the devotion he feels for his nearest and dearest relations (as described on the previous page), Barrett Blade has great compassion and sensitivity toward people in all walks of life. Barrett Blade has a gift for understanding and appreciating a wide variety of art and life styles.
Moreover, Blade should be careful not to be taken advantage of by others. His good heart and innocent, unsuspecting attitude can make Barrett Blade a victim of others' greed. If this happens, Barrett needs to avoid becoming bitter and resentful about life, and instead, to allow his great compassion and sensitivity to blossom and shine, rather than be dimmed by a few mistakes.
At heart he is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Barrett Blade as anything in the outer world, though he may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting his inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, he has a rich inner life, though Blade may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Barrett Blade usually keeps to himself.
Barrett shows great sensitivity and empathy toward others and often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. He is tolerant, forgiving and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. Barrett has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and he often feels the pain of others as if it were his own. Barrett Blade sympathizes with the needy, the disadvantaged and the misfits of society. He is capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker or minister. However, Blade tends to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of his kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon him. Barrett has little sense of boundaries, or of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not his strong points.
He is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and he tries to avoid open conflict. Blade will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Blade tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Barrett Blade does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
His gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for he possesses great sensitivity, inspiration and limitless imagination. Barrett Blade has a strong affinity for beauty and love.
His faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than take strong, definite action to change his life for the better. He also tends to become so detached from his immediate environment that he lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around Blade more than it bothers him.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Blade. Barrett Blade has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. He is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Barrett Blade may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Barrett Blade tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. Barrett Blade has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Barrett Blade often feels that he is at cross purposes with himself, for his conscious intentions and desires conflict with his subconscious emotional needs and drives. He is torn in two different directions. Barrett has difficulty satisfying both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Barrett sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to him or what Barrett really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
Blade can be an inspiring leader of a team or group effort. His dynamism and energy evokes the same in others, and he sees healthy competition between people as a plus. Generally, Barrett Blade enjoys fine health as well.
At times Barrett Blade may feel an uncontrollable urge to radically alter his direction in life or to act in ways that seem eccentric or at least highly atypical. When his life becomes too predictable, Barrett may do something to upset the status quo, sometimes without realizing why or how he is doing it. These impulses may seem at odds with his conscious intent and desires for himself, and can be unsettling. However, there is a streak of unconventionality and creative genius in Barrett Blade that needs to be expressed now and then.
Barrett Blade has a harmonious balance between his body, soul and spirit. He enjoys intellectual challenges from others, but tends to form his own mental attitudes and philosophies of life. He may be interested in studying human nature and matters of health.
