Behind Redgrave's strong, proud appearance (described in the previous chapter), there is a very tender, sensitive, sentimental, feeling person. He is probably much shyer and more private than initially presumed.
Corin has powerful emotional attachments to the past, his family, his childhood, places he associates with safety and security, and his beginnings. It is very important to Redgrave to maintain a connection with his roots and heritage and keep family bonds strong. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, Redgrave tends to cling to whatever is dear to him - be it a person, a familiar place, or a cherished possession.
He is sympathetic, nurturing, supportive and very sensitive to the emotional needs of other people. Corin likes to be needed and to care for others, and he often worries about the people he loves. Corin Redgrave has a very strong need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, and much of his life centers on his home. He is more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society. Kindness, consideration and tenderness are more meaningful to Corin Redgrave than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
He is primarily emotional and his views are often dominated by his feelings and his own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic or abstract principles. It is difficult for him to judge situations fairly and objectively because his personal sympathies and loyalties usually factor in. Corin Redgrave takes things very personally and sometimes builds a wall around himself to shield himself from pain and rejection. Corin Redgrave feels rather shy and vulnerable at heart. He also tends to be moody and experiences frequent mood swings. Corin Redgrave needs to have a place and time in his life to withdraw, introspect, dream and replenish himself; otherwise Corin Redgrave becomes cranky and unhappy with those around him.
Corin Redgrave functions in an instinctive, irrational manner and likes to immerse himself in creative activities where he can express his feelings, imagination and instincts. Redgrave often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Corin Redgrave also has a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
His compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are Redgrave's strong points. His faults include an inability to let go of the past and move forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency for self-pity when facing hardship.
Leading groups and classes, and being involved in community efforts, social activities, events or movements are areas where Corin Redgrave really shines and expresses his creativity. An awareness of politics or the larger social impact of individual actions is natural to him.
He is an original! Corin Redgrave radiates a sort of electrical excitement about the things he is interested in, and conveys this to others, but he also gets bored rather quickly. Corin does not mind being a bit unusual or breaking a few rules either.
He is very open and receptive to the spiritual, intangible, and subtle realms, and can easily receive or give conscious guidance based on his inner attunement. Corin Redgrave takes many things for granted, such as the existence of an afterlife or the effects of subtle influences like aromatherapy, spiritual healing, etc. These things seem obvious to Corin, whereas to many people they are a matter of conjecture or even illusory. Corin Redgrave may not realize he has spiritual gifts because they come so naturally to him.
His emotions are very intense and Corin Redgrave is excited quite easily. Love is very important to him and he is constantly seeking emotional fulfillment, but he will not waste time with casual relationships.
Corin Redgrave has a sense of good fellowship and comradeship and is very much at ease in contact with others. Redgrave works successfully with others in his community, groups or associations and may get some assistance from some very powerful and influential people.
