drive and ambition
Burkhard is aspiring, enterprising and forever following a bright and distant star, planning some new venture or investigating new potential. He is definitely "upwardly mobile" in either a material or spiritual sense. Gedeon Burkhard aims high and is not content with a mere quiet, secure existence. Gedeon likes to stretch his limits, see how far he can go and take risks. He is a positive thinker, expects success for himself, and is philosophical about failures. Burkhard is flexible and he bounces back from disappointments rather quickly, usually with another hopeful new idea he wants to try. His enthusiasm and confidence are contagious and enable Gedeon Burkhard to enlist the aid and support he needs for his projects. However, Gedeon Burkhard sometimes promises more than he can actually achieve, because he is overly optimistic or pays insufficient attention to the practicalities involved.
He also tends to get distracted and to have too many things going on at once. Although it is very difficult for him, there are times when Gedeon Burkhard simply must cultivate commitment, perseverance and persistence in order to make his dreams and goals reality. Too often Gedeon Burkhard falls short of what he could attain because he is unwilling to persist through the difficult or less exciting times.

Unless other factors in his chart suggest staying power and the ability to follow through, Gedeon Burkhard may be the person who initiates a new venture but cannot happily participate in the ongoing, sustained effort it requires. "Independent" is Burkhard's middle name! Gedeon Burkhard needs to be a totally free agent, to run his own show. Gedeon likes to introduce new concepts to people, and then move on.
His competitive drive and lofty ambitions (commented upon earlier) feed on either intense spiritual idealism or a rather inflated, grandiose idea of what Gedeon Burkhard can actually accomplish.

Sometimes Burkhard may be confused about exactly how and where to direct his energy and he often drifts along rather than making clear decisions about what he wants.
