Eddie Van Halen often seesaws between what his conscious reasoning tells him versus a belief in things which seem to defy logic. Eddie has a penchant for thinking big and being able to visualize the future, but he must beware of grandiose schemes and exaggerated claims.

Also, Eddie Van Halen is prone to severe wanderlust at times, so he should try to see as much of the world as he can.
Although he is perceptive and attuned to the personal, human side of any issue (as described above), Eddie Van Halen is also capable of considerable intellectual detachment and objectivity.

Eddie has an introverted frame of mind and tends to dissect or deeply analyze his own inner life and experiences as well as those of others.

Van Halen will notice that the description below contradicts some of the statements made in the previous paragraphs. So far, Eddie Van Halen's thinking was depicted as careful, conservative, methodical and possibly narrow or rigid, while the following information defines his mind as quick and innovative. Both are true! Eddie Van Halen incorporates both ways of thinking - the inspired-inventive and the deductive-ordered. Here is a description of the more free-flowing aspect:
His mind works in a rather electric, inspired, sometimes brilliant way, and Eddie Van Halen grasps new concepts very readily. However, his retention may be poor, as Van Halen tends to leap from one idea to another in a flash, and often without thoroughly digesting any of them.

Eddie has a highly sensitive nervous system and needs a relatively calm, stable environment to be at his best. Eddie Van Halen should avoid over stimulating, frenetic places in order to stay balanced.
