drive and ambition
Frank Zappa is extremely strong-willed and he pursues his goals and desires with passionate dedication and determination. He is capable of total concentration and tremendous discipline, and he is very difficult to influence or sway once his mind is made up. When Frank Zappa wants something, Zappa can be very one-sided and almost obsessed with it. He is very instinctive and does not always consciously know why he feels as strongly and deeply as he does.
He also tends to be secretive and unwilling to reveal his aims and intentions, and the intensity of his will and desire may not initially be apparent to others. However, Zappa is very forceful in a quiet and subtle way. Frank Zappa often manipulates or forces his will upon other people, without being overtly aggressive. He is not interested in confrontation but he is a formidable foe if he encounters opposition or aggression. Frank is courageous and has a rather primitive, raw side as well.
He is a team player and collaborates well with others who share his goals, ideals and intentions. Frank Zappa can coordinate group efforts and inspire people to work toward a common goal.
Team sports are also a lot of fun for Frank, and he could be a leader, coach or director of any group endeavor.
Frank Zappa seeks out risky and even dangerous activities, primarily for the excitement they provide. Impulsive, daring, impatient and unconventional, Frank Zappa 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. Zappa 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 Zappa's strengths.
He is highly attuned to the intangible or unseen world. Thus, Frank's drive and ambitions in life are likely to be colored by his subtle awareness and his mystical or intuitive sensitivity. Imagination, "make believe", creative fantasy and the ability to visualize may also be aspects of his career. Frank Zappa has the ability to "channel" healing or inspirational messages.
Frank Zappa really wants to leave his mark on the world in some way, to achieve stature and recognition for his contributions, and he is not willing to take a back seat - at least not for very long. In order to achieve his aims, though, Frank Zappa will have to compromise and "give" more than he may be willing to. Thus, conflicts with others, particularly important men in his life, may arise. To accomplish his goals, Frank may have to set aside some of his self-centeredness, and learn from these men! However, Frank Zappa may also be required at some point to make a break in order to hold his own and fulfill his own destiny.
His career is apt to involve beauty, adornment, the arts or entertainment. His personal charm and appeal are significant factors in his profession as well. Frank Zappa is very good at selling and promoting - be it himself, his product or his company.
Frank has an aptitude for detective or research work, or any field that involves digging beneath the surface for the hidden elements. An interest in psychology, hypnosis and subconscious forces or subliminal messages may well be a key factor in his career.
Whatever his choice of profession, Frank Zappa is apt to feel a sense of inner mission about it and may pursue it with great zeal and intensity.
Frank very much wants to be in a position to be able to positively influence and help many people. However, he may believe that he has to sacrifice his idealism or convictions in order to achieve his ambitions. At times his desire for prominence, popularity or stature may make Frank Zappa do things that put him in a dubious position vis-à-vis his superiors.
