Even though he is emotionally intense and can be somewhat of a pressure cooker at times (as described on the previous page), Danny Wood is very grounded and stable at heart, as described in more detail below. His essentially sensible, practical nature enables Danny Wood to direct some of his powerful feelings and drives into productive channels.
He is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of his greatest assets. Once Wood's course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
Danny Wood has a very practical nature; he wants to see concrete, tangible results for his efforts, and he is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of his "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for he has a great love of the physical world and he wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Danny Wood will work long and persistently, he also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and he wants to enjoy what he has worked for. In fact, Wood can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Danny Wood also loves the beauty of the natural world and he probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, his needs are simple and he is easy to please. Danny Wood has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless he is forced to do so. He is not very demanding emotionally, though he does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of his faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon Wood for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, Danny Wood usually maintains his poise and equanimity. Danny Wood also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. He makes an excellent parent, especially if he follows his instincts more often than "the experts".
Danny has three major faults: one is his bullheaded obstinacy. The second is his unwillingness to deviate from his safe, predictable routine. And the third is Wood's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Danny Wood lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to new horizons.
Danny Wood invests a tremendous amount of his creative energy into his relationships with others, particularly his marriage or other close partnerships. Danny 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 promote mutual understanding, harmony, and satisfaction is an area in which Danny Wood can really excel. Counseling or negotiating are talents of his.
Danny 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 Wood many allies and successes in life.
Danny Wood is extremely sensitive, compassionate and giving, often to his own detriment. His ideals and spiritual values motivate Danny Wood, and he cannot live for personal gain or materialistic concerns alone. There must be an element of beauty, magic, imagination, inspiration or creativity in what he does. Otherwise Danny Wood becomes listless and aimless. The arts, theater, music and/or charitable work are ideally suited to Danny.
Danny Wood deeply believes in his own power and his ability to survive any change and emerge victorious from any difficulty. Danny has tremendous inner resources and strength. Intense, strong willed, and zealous, he pursues his desires and goals with complete dedication and singleness of purpose, and he may be somewhat compulsive and even fanatical at times. Danny likes to live intensely and has no respect for people who are weak or avoid confronting life and their own destiny.
His mind is very active and his judgment usually is sound. Although Danny Wood's thinking is influenced by his feelings, he is inclined to think in realistic and practical terms. He is in control of his feelings and is able to express them rationally.
Wood depends a great deal on other people's reactions to him and rarely acts until he sees how he affects others. Danny Wood must learn to be direct and straightforward, rather than evasive or manipulative. Danny should also learn to rely heavily on his hunches.
