drive and ambition
Once Félicien-César David sets his mind on a goal, his dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. César pursues his ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Félicien labors patiently and steadfastly until he achieves what he wants - or until it is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that all is lost. He is a reliable, consistent and productive worker, and he often shoulders more of the workload than his co-workers, usually without complaint. He often ends up with the nitty-gritty work. He prefers a regular routine, with definite hours and clearly defined responsibilities and tasks. In fact, establishing a pattern or routine is very important to his success because once he gets started in a certain direction, it is easy for Félicien-César David to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Félicien-César David has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for him to overcome before César gets going; but once he gets a momentum going, his energy level is strong and steady.
He is interested in concrete results and solid, practical achievements. Félicien-César David needs to have some tangible product or contribution to show for his efforts, and cannot be content with only intangible rewards (such as having a good time, learning, or spiritual enrichment). Material well-being and security is also a large factor in determining what he does. Félicien's stamina and persistence are his greatest assets, but they can also work against him; he can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Félicien-César David also tends to play it safe, and to limit himself as a result.
Asserting himself and being direct and forceful about what he wants is often very difficult for Félicien. Though he may have a great deal of energy and drive, Félicien-César David lacks confidence or simply the desire to put himself and his interests first. On the positive side, César can be very unselfish, working more for the benefit of others than for himself.
However, Félicien-César David denies his own desires and needs too much, and he is likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage his finest efforts.
Félicien-César David has a positive, "can-do" attitude and he tackles life's challenges with relish. He is self-confident and has a strong will to succeed, to see how much he can do and how far he can go. No matter what César accomplishes, he does not rest on his laurels. Félicien wants to keep on going, to do even bigger things. He is proactive, enterprising and enthusiastic about new projects. He is not happy in situations that do not offer him challenges and the potential for future growth - no matter how secure or satisfactory they may seem in other respects. He enjoys competition, but Félicien-César David competes mostly with himself, to see how much of his vision and potential he can really achieve. He makes a good leader, inspiring courage and confidence in others. Félicien-César David usually enjoys good health and a high level of vitality.
Félicien-César David seeks out risky and even dangerous activities, primarily for the excitement they provide. Impulsive, daring, impatient and unconventional, Félicien-César David cannot sit still for very long and he has no capacity for "doing things as they have always been done". He is a defiant and independent person who can go it alone if need be. César can be extremely bossy and pushy and is prone to sudden, erratic outbursts, especially when he has to wait for what he wants. Courage and a taste for the unorthodox or outrageous are César's strengths.
His competitive drive and lofty ambitions (commented upon earlier) feed on either intense spiritual idealism or a rather inflated, grandiose idea of what Félicien-César David can actually accomplish. His energy level is apt to fluctuate from being very high, as noted earlier, to rather low, as mentioned in the following paragraphs.
While Félicien-César David is often charged with energy and inspired about what he wants to do (as mentioned earlier), there is a dreamy, visionary, or passive side to him as well. His energy level may fluctuate from being superabundant to rather lax.
Félicien-César David has a streak of the pacifist or defeatist in him. Learning to assert himself in a strong, clear, forthright manner and developing stamina in the face of obstacles are necessary to counter such tendencies. To accomplish all he is capable of, it would also be very beneficial for Félicien-César David to work on building up his physical energy. Félicien needs to get regular exercise, eat healthfully, get plenty of rest (something he may require more than an average amount of), and especially avoid activities and people who dissipate and waste his time.
He is industrious and diligent and has the power to establish himself in the world. He is very ambitious and tends to strive for public recognition. Although he may not be looking for trouble, Félicien-César David could easily get into disputes or quarrels.
A strong home base may be the most important factor in Félicien's choice of career and his success or lack thereof. Family support is crucial to Félicien-César David, and he would not sacrifice his family for the sake of any advantage or achievement in the outside world. If Félicien-César David has a solid foundation and a healthy relationship with his parents, he is likely to fulfill any of his aspirations for success.
Félicien-César David tends to want to take the easy road to success, and unless other factors in his chart suggest a capacity for effort or a lot of energy, laziness could interfere with achieving whatever ambitions César has. He tends to gain his objectives through his personal charm and appeal. Félicien-César David also possesses a fine aesthetic sense which could be a prominent factor in his career.
Félicien has grand aspirations and may be inordinately ambitious at times. In other words, he is liable to be discontent with small successes and to feel like a failure unless he achieves extraordinary things. Félicien-César David should avoid get-rich-quick schemes that promise tremendous returns in return for little energy expenditure. Even if they do seem to succeed, César's ideals and values could be compromised.
He is a bit restless and always seems to be in motion. Félicien-César David probably had the desire to go his own way early in life, wanting to learn from his own mistakes and experiences. His plans for the future are far-reaching and Félicien-César David may choose an unusual career.
