In addition to Chris' strong personal loyalties and the devotion he feels for his nearest and dearest relations (as described on the previous page), Chris Martin has great compassion and sensitivity toward people in all walks of life. Chris Martin has a gift for understanding and appreciating a wide variety of art and life styles.
Moreover, Martin should be careful not to be taken advantage of by others. His good heart and innocent, unsuspecting attitude can make Chris Martin a victim of others' greed. If this happens, Chris 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 Chris Martin 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 Martin may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Chris Martin usually keeps to himself.
Chris 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. Chris has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and he often feels the pain of others as if it were his own. Chris Martin 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, Martin 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. Chris 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. Martin will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Martin tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Chris Martin 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. Chris Martin 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 Martin more than it bothers him.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to Martin. Chris Martin has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy him; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Chris Martin may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Chris has to overcome considerable hardship in order to fulfill his personal destiny. However, he does have the strength and stamina necessary to do so. Support and helpful guidance from his father or other significant men in his life may well be lacking. In fact, their disapproval of Chris and their harsh criticism are apt to be two of his greatest handicaps, and at times he may feel quite discouraged and alone. But true self-reliance and a solid sense of his own powers may well be the silver lining to that cloud in his life. Chris Martin needs to learn to follow his own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what his critics or the authorities say.
Although he takes himself and his responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of Chris Martin that rebels against rules and restrictions and the need to contend with outside authority. Martin can feel torn between conforming to the rules or fulfilling his obligations, and breaking free of them. His wilder side will now be described.
The unusual and unorthodox appeal to Martin, and he does not allow tradition, convention or other people's expectations to dictate how he is going to live his life. Chris Martin craves freedom, adventure, excitement and discovery, and is not afraid of change. Chris Martin possesses inventive and creative genius.
While he is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Chris Martin also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
Chris is extremely sensitive and imaginative, and he can get lost in his dreams, fantasies and visions. He is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, as well as to the world of color, beauty, and emotion. Chris Martin is also drawn to mysticism and he has deep spiritual aspirations and yearnings. Gentle and peace loving, Martin may lack the will and competitive spirit needed to make his way in the world. He is often impractical and may seek to avoid or escape the harsh realities of life.
He is apt to be a fanatic in some way, and cannot go halfway in anything he does. His extremism may seem (and actually be) obsessive and somewhat blind. That is, Chris Martin does not always consciously understand why he feels as driven or intense about a given course of action as he does. There is a strong element of fate or inevitability in Martin's life. A significant death or loss in his close relationships is apt to profoundly influence Chris Martin and shape important decisions in his life, and he may consciously seek out intense, life-or-death experiences as well.
Martin has a strong will and great determination and is willing to work hard to reach his goals. Chris Martin often takes on more than his share and labors untiringly, sparing himself no pain in his work. Chris should guard against over-exerting himself physically.
