He is not easily moved by emotional displays and can be curiously detached from his own emotions and those of others. It is almost as if he could turn his feelings on and off at will; Ed should be careful not to leave the switch "off" too often, for he could easily become too impersonal. Family relationships and attachments are not as important to him as they are to most people and Powers often considers his friends closer to him than his blood relatives. Certainly, Powers' sympathy and concern extends much beyond his immediate family. In his personal relationships, Ed Powers insists upon a certain amount of independence and the freedom to pursue friendships with as many people, of both sexes, as he chooses. Ed does not appreciate a jealous, possessive partner.
Ed Powers feels comfortable in an atmosphere that is open and experimental, and he has little taste for convention and tradition.
He is likely to be a great collector of things - a real pack rat in fact - for his belongings give Ed Powers a sense of security and continuity with the past, which is important to him. Antiques or things with sentimental value from Ed's past are especially dear to him.
Ed Powers may also cling rather tightly to money and possessions, keeping them "in the family" rather than sharing freely with those outside of his immediate circle.
Ed has conflicting emotional desires and needs which complicate his personal life and relationships. He may feel that he cannot depend on his love partner to take care of him or perhaps Powers cannot decide what he really wants in love relationships: a parent or a lover. If his needs for emotional sustenance and love are not satisfied, overeating (especially sweets) can become a problem.
Ed Powers often feels that he must do something or be something other than what he is in order to receive approval and acceptance from others. He is very sensitive to criticism and easily feels left out or neglected, and though he may appear cool or distant, Powers actually cares very much about being included. Because he is so sensitive, it may seem easier for Ed Powers to withdraw into a shell rather than risk the emotional bumps and bruises he may endure once he lets others really know him in an intimate, personal way. His reserve and caution make establishing close emotional relationships with others difficult, and Ed Powers becomes very attached to the few people he considers "real friends". Powers can gain inner security and strength through periods of solitude if he views them as times to nourish himself and develop his own interests, rather than as times of loneliness.
In love relationships, Ed Powers desires a deep, intense and passionate union with his beloved and forms very strong emotional bonds and attachments. Ed "marries" the person he loves at a very deep emotional level, and is often extremely possessive and jealous of anyone who may pose a threat to that union. Powers can be very demanding of his love partner. Ed Powers tends to be somewhat suspicious of his partner's relationships, even if they are merely platonic. If he is ever betrayed, Ed Powers is capable of hating with as much force and intensity as he once loved. He is attracted to people who have an aura of mystery about them.
Promoting beauty, the arts, or entertainment can make Ed Powers very happy. Ed wants to contribute something positive and loving to the world at large and he wants to be recognized for his beauty, artistic gifts, or loving generosity. Ed Powers may "marry" his work - that is, being more involved in his career than in his private life. Powers is a natural host or diplomat.
Intimacy does not come easily to Ed Powers and he may appear cold or unfeeling to others due to his emotional reserve and caution. Perhaps due to painful relationships and separations in his early life, Powers does not trust others very easily and it takes a long time to break down all of his barriers and defenses. He may feel that he has few friends or people that really care about him. Ed Powers needs to learn to value and love himself more and to express his appreciation for others more openly.
Ed Powers has a need to mix with people expressing the same feelings and having the same interests that he has. Ed shares his artistic concerns with others and is likely to join groups or associations that deal with art in some way.
