Although Eddie Money appears gentle and sympathetic toward others (as explained in the previous chapter), he is also a "warrior". Money sometimes feels torn between these two facets of his character: the sensitive, tenderhearted, home-loving side, and the assertive, competitive, risk-taking side. People who first meet Eddie Money often think that he is a "softy", but later find out that he is strong willed and pursues his goals aggressively.
He is a person who thrives on challenge, and he often feels that he must battle his way through life, relying on no one and nothing but his own strength, intelligence and courage. Eddie Money believes in being totally honest, true to himself and his own vision and convictions, even if it means standing alone. Honesty, integrity, personal honor and authenticity are Money's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Eddie Money craves the freedom to do things in his own way, and he works very well independently. Cooperating with others or carrying out another's will is not his style. Eddie likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Eddie Money loves action and if others are settling down into a nice, comfortable little rut, then he is always ready to stir things up, do something new, make changes and introduce some fresh blood. Routine and sameness are tantamount to death for him. He is not afraid of trying something that has never been done before, and even though he may sometimes be perceived as a fool, Eddie Money also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Money, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Eddie Money believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Eddie Money hates being ill or in a position of dependency. Accepting his own human limitations and emotional needs is often difficult for him.
He is basically aggressive in his attitudes and less adept at relating to others, picking up on subtle messages and nuances, listening, nurturing and harmonizing. He is often so fired up about his own projects or goals that he inadvertently runs over or ignores other people's feelings and interests. Being receptive and appreciative of others' contributions, ideas and feelings would be highly instrumental in improving Money's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Eddie Money to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Eddie Money would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Eddie Money to do so.
Money is very attracted to world travel, foreign cultures and studies that expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world.
Eddie Money is philosophically inclined and concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting an overall picture of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy his mind much of the time.
Eddie Money is loving and well loved by others, and has a strong need for relationships that offer kindness, friendship and affection. His artistic and creative powers are also well developed and Eddie does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Money, as are his personal appearance and attractiveness.
Eddie Money often feels that he is at cross purposes with himself, for his conscious intentions and desires conflict with his subconscious emotional needs and drives. He is torn in two different directions. Eddie has difficulty satisfying both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Eddie sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to him or what Eddie really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
Although Eddie Money prefers harmony and accord, he also has a confrontational side.
He is assertive, energetic, active, courageous and vital. Eddie Money has a very strong physical drive that expresses itself as sexuality and passion, a desire to compete with others, and a tendency to fight. Eddie Money has a victorious spirit and the will to win.
His life is apt to be blessed with more than his share of helpful friends, fortuitous relationships, and doors opening up to him at just the right time. Because Eddie Money is usually willing to share and to give back to others in a generous way, he continues to generate success in his life no matter how unfortunate prevailing circumstances are. Eddie should beware, however, of becoming an opportunist.
While Eddie Money deeply appreciates beauty and has a great desire for love, he is in no way frivolous or indiscriminate in his affections. Money can be very frugal and sparing with both money and emotions.
While Eddie Money does have a strong drive, he frequently holds himself back. One of his challenges lies in learning to endure frustration and to patiently overcome the obstacles in his life (or his own internal caution and resistance!).
However he also has a more somber side, which keeps Money's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Eddie Money 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.
Eddie has to overcome considerable hardship in order to fulfill his personal destiny. However, he has 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 Eddie 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. Eddie Money needs to learn to follow his own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what his critics or the authorities may say.
Although he takes himself and his responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of Eddie Money that rebels against rules and restrictions and the need to contend with outside authority. Money can feel torn between conforming to the rules or fulfilling his obligations, and breaking free of them. His wilder side will now be described.
Impulsive, restless and spontaneous, his life is apt to be somewhat unstable and full of sudden changes. Eddie Money is extremely independent and craves excitement, adventure, freedom and discovery. Money has a rebellious streak and he often feels he is unusual and different from society's mainstream. The unorthodox and the novel appeal to him.
