drive and ambition
Charles Baudelaire has a warrior's attitude - decisive, courageous, and bold. Charles tends to always want action, even when waiting for an appropriate time or not doing something (simply letting things alone to resolve themselves) would actually be more efficient and effective. He absolutely cannot tolerate being passive or even patient about getting what he wants. Charles Baudelaire feels that it is up to him to take the initiative and he goes after his goal or desire very aggressively.
He is also self-reliant, does not depend on others to do things for him or help him along, and Charles Baudelaire is often irritated when other people offer advice or direction. Cooperation rarely comes easily to him. He is willful and can be quite oblivious to others' desires or feelings when he is pursuing something he wants. He is highly competitive, enjoys a challenge or a good fight, and may be downright pugnacious at times. Abounding in energy and enthusiasm at the start of a new venture, Charles Baudelaire needs a very positive response and encouragement to sustain his interest in it. If a project is not successful rather quickly, he is apt to drop it and move on to something else, rather than rework or refine it. The desire to blaze a trail, to do things in a new way - the Baudelaire way - is very strong in him. Baudelaire can discover, invent, and initiate new things, but is impatient and may lack the stamina and perseverance needed to complete a long-term project.
Baudelaire is attracted to feisty, dynamic, strong-willed people, and he seems to need a lot of fireworks in his personal relationships. Charles Baudelaire can be very combative, or get involved with people who are. Ideally Charles will join with people who are energetic and ambitious, but not too domineering or aggressive.
Intensely restless, dynamic, and energetic, he is always on the go. When Charles Baudelaire wants something, he wants it NOW, and he acts decisively, impulsively, sometimes hastily and prematurely. Impatient, high-strung, and often nervous and tense, Charles finds it difficult to slow down, pace himself, or relax. He is fiercely individualistic and independent, self-willed and intolerant of restraints and restrictions imposed by others. Charles Baudelaire has a reckless disregard for authority and can be extremely rebellious. Cooperating with others is not his strong point! He is often brutally frank and abrupt with people, and can be quite impersonal when he is pursuing a desired goal. He may have an explosive temper when his will is blocked. Charles Baudelaire has a superabundance of energy and he needs much personal freedom to do things in his own style and at his own pace.
While Charles Baudelaire is often charged with energy and inspired about what he wants to do (as mentioned earlier), there is a dreamy, visionary, or passive side to him as well. His energy level may fluctuate from being superabundant to rather lax.
Ordinary life often seems drab and uninteresting to Charles and he must have something that stirs his imagination, some vision or ideal or dream to motivate him. Charles Baudelaire has a strong urge to act out his fantasies or to live his dream, and he will act upon things that others only talk or dream about. Artistic creation, drama, or other areas in which Baudelaire can express himself imaginatively are excellent for him.
Work that serves only his own narrow personal interests does not satisfy Charles Baudelaire. He may lack the competitive edge, the fighting spirit, the "me-first" attitude that is often required for material advancement and success. He also tends to either overestimate or underestimate his own power and abilities.
When Charles Baudelaire wants something, Charles Baudelaire goes after it with passionate zeal and is sometimes so driven by his desire that he loses all objectivity. Charles gets so deeply involved in whatever he is pursuing that he becomes one-sided, even fanatical. Strong-willed and stubborn, Charles Baudelaire insists on having his way no matter the cost. He is fascinated with power. Charles Baudelaire often tries to overpower anything or anyone he perceives as an obstacle, if not physically then by the force of his will. Baudelaire can be ruthless and impersonal when it comes to achieving his ambitions and goals in life. Charles has enormous energy and is capable of extraordinary effort and great achievement. Baudelaire can also become a compulsive workaholic.
Charles Baudelaire has a strong desire for public attention and the need to be important. Charles wants to be recognized for his efforts and wants to be in a leading role. He is willing to cooperate and enjoys team work as the leader of a group.
He is likely to feel depressed frequently and has a strong desire to overcome it, but may not be able to count on much support from others. Charles Baudelaire tends to separate himself from others and he feels like being expelled from society.
His career is apt to involve beauty, adornment, the arts, or entertainment. His personal charm and appeal are significant factors in his profession, as well. Charles Baudelaire is very good at selling and promoting - whether it is himself, or his product or company.
Baudelaire's profession may be unusual, very innovative and progressive, or outside the "mainstream", providing alternative services or products. A certain uneven, erratic quality characterizes Charles' career and rise in the professional arena. Sudden changes of fortune, unexpected upsets, and twists of fate are likely.
His professional goals and long-range ambitions may be vague and difficult for Charles Baudelaire to define for quite a long time. This is partly due to the fact that they are not very conventional, concrete, or worldly. Charles is apt to have more of a spiritual vocation or calling. Healing, counseling, the ministry, music, art - or some combination thereof - may well be part of his role in life. On the other hand, Charles Baudelaire may simply be confused and seemingly not ambitious at all in the professional realm.
Charles Baudelaire feels that he knows who he is and therefore is confident that he can achieve his objectives. He may consider marriage as his sole aim in life and could become completely bound up in his marriage and family life.
His self-control is well developed and Charles Baudelaire is patient, cautious and responsible. Baudelaire knows that success comes with hard work and is willing to do his share. Charles likes to be by himself and to do his own thing, but at times he may also feel lonely and deserted.
