Frank Castillo's fundamental needs, values, and orientation towards life are symbolized by the four astrological elements. Each person has their own unique balance of these four basic energies: fire (warmth, inspiration, enthusiasm), earth (practicality, realism, material interests), air (social and intellectual qualities), and water (emotional needs and feelings).
Castillo's "elemental make-up" is described below. Remember that most people are "unbalanced" or lopsided, and if Frank is lacking or deficient in a certain element (or elements), it simply means that he needs to consciously develop that particular aspect in order to appreciate and/or work harder in that dimension of life.
Sometimes we overestimate the element that we are least endowed with, sensing it as a lack within ourselves, but more often we neglect or ignore it. The qualities described below will be reiterated and explained in more detail in the following pages.
He is a fiery individual, filled with tremendous passion and zest for life. Frank thrives in situations where there is energy, excitement, action, movement, dynamism and drama. Along with his exuberant vitality and enthusiasm, Frank Castillo has an acute ability to visualize future possibilities, and an almost childlike faith in "what could be". Unless he has a vision, an aspiration, or a wonderful dream to believe in, Castillo is not completely happy. Frank Castillo has a great sense of the majesty, grandeur and adventure of life, but tends to overlook the magic in small things and everyday life.
Frank Castillo also has a strong urge to express himself spontaneously and creatively, without conforming to others' ways or conventions. Personal freedom and independence are very important to Frank and he resists being "owned" or dictated to. Castillo is secretly apt to feel that he is special or charmed - somehow above or beyond the realm of "ordinary" people and mundane life.
Frank Castillo has a dominant ego and can be excessively proud, dominating, or concerned with himself. Frank Castillo has a positive, vigorous, active approach to life, and bringing his intentions and desires to the fore feels more natural to him than going with the flow or merely allowing life to unfold. Frank Castillo is essentially very "yang" (assertive, competitive, outgoing, direct), and the "yin" qualities of passive acceptance, receptivity, gentleness, and subtlety do not come easily to him. Frank inspires others with his generous spirit, idealism, spark, confidence and joie de vivre, but he can also irritate them with his self-centeredness and insistence on expressing himself freely regardless of others' needs or opinions. Moreover, Frank Castillo has trouble being content in the present and would benefit by learning how to consciously pacify his restlessness and achieve the capacity for tranquility and peacefulness.
One of his primary challenges lies in developing a sense of security and stability and adopting a steady rhythm in life. Cultivating self-discipline, patience and endurance and learning to accept realistic limitations will enable Frank Castillo to be more productive and to implement some of his ideas and creative impulses. Frank Castillo is not always interested in the practicalities and compromises required to make his dreams a reality.
At times, Frank Castillo feels out of place in the world, restless, discontent, unable to find his niche and dissatisfied with mundane reality. This may have the positive effect of sparking Castillo's exploration of the creative, imaginative or spiritual side of life. However, Frank tends to resist growing up and learning how to effectively deal with adult responsibility. He also tends to be either bound up with the past or projecting into the future, thereby ignoring the present. To become more grounded in the here and now, Frank Castillo may find it helpful to get massages on a regular basis, make a practice of gentle, rhythmic exercise like walking or yoga, and eat substantial, heavy foods.
Frank has trouble dealing with emotions - both his own and those of others. Frank Castillo often ignores or discounts feelings and the emotional reality of a situation, thus seeming insensitive or uncaring to others. Castillo needs to develop the capacity to experience deep emotional ties, empathy, compassion and sensitivity to the feelings of others; however, this ability will only manifest later in life rather than in his youth.
Though he may appear emotionally self-sufficient or above it all, Frank's tendency to repress his feelings could have physical ramifications; as such, it would serve Castillo well to learn to acknowledge and express all of his emotions.
Castillo may also find that he craves fluids or the desire to live near bodies of water as a means to acquire balance.
