Billy Corgan often senses a conflict between his discriminating, analytical, critical side (described in the previous chapter), and his tolerant, forgiving side (described below). Consequently, Corgan tends to seesaw - at times criticizing and correcting others while at others, forgiving them for the most egregious errors and inadequacies. Billy Corgan should strive to find a balance between clarity and justice on the one hand, and mercy and compassion on the other.
Corgan's urge to serve, help and improve the life of others is strong, and he is quite willing to make personal sacrifices to do so.
At heart he is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Billy Corgan 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 Corgan may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Billy Corgan usually keeps to himself.
Billy 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. Billy has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and he often feels the pain of others as if it were his own. Billy Corgan 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, Corgan 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. Billy 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. Corgan will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Corgan tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Billy Corgan 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. Billy Corgan 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 Corgan more than it bothers him.
Billy Corgan invests a tremendous amount of his creative energy into his relationships with others, particularly his marriage or other close partnerships. Billy feels that he needs others in order to be all that he can be, and he is disinclined to solitary activities and endeavors.
Working with people on a one-to-one basis to bring about mutual understanding, harmony, and satisfaction is an area in which Billy Corgan can really excel. Counseling or negotiating are talents of his.
Billy has lofty aspirations but does not struggle or labor to achieve them. His self-confidence and inner harmony attract success and benefit him in an almost magical way. His optimism and cheerful generosity also win Corgan many allies and successes in life.
However he also has a more somber side, which keeps Corgan's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Billy Corgan tends to seesaw between his faith, vision and high aspirations, and his caution and realism (or fear!). He cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and he accepts the need for hard work. His skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
Billy Corgan has a mature and often somber demeanor. He is serious, reserved, self-disciplined, highly responsible and conscientious. He progresses rather slowly in life, through his own efforts and persistence. He is also rather stern and judgmental, especially with himself. Cautious and careful, it is difficult for him to really let go, be spontaneous and playful. Billy likes to be in control of himself.
Although he takes himself and his responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of Billy Corgan that rebels against rules and restrictions and the need to contend with outside authority. Corgan can feel torn between conforming to the rules or fulfilling his obligations, and breaking free of them. His wilder side will now be described.
If he follows his true nature, his life is apt to be unconventional, unusual, controversial and full of insecurity and excitement. Billy Corgan cannot and will not be forced into a pre-set mold, and Billy finds it difficult to conform. His offbeat interests and tastes lead Corgan to ventures that others may consider too "far-out" or experimental. Billy Corgan has a very creative, inventive streak.
While he is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Billy Corgan also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
He is imaginative and sensitive to anything colorful, beautiful or magical. He is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, music and mysticism. His spiritual values color Billy's whole perspective and approach to life. He is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
