Although Guy Ballard comes across as a very private, somewhat wary and enigmatic individual (as described on the previous page), there is another, quite different side to him: a person who really wants to be noticed, known, loved and admired.
Proud and intensely individual, Guy Ballard really wants to stand out, to be the very best he can be, and to be recognized and appreciated for his unique contributions. Doing something well and being respected for it is extremely important to him, and he cannot tolerate being relegated to the background, taking orders from others, or being "just one of the team". Guy Ballard must put his personal stamp on whatever he does, and direct his own course in life. Guy Ballard needs to have a place where he can shine, express himself creatively, and be the one in charge.
Guy has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. Guy Ballard also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Guy Ballard, it is true that "the entire world's a stage" and he secretly (or perhaps not so secretly) desires to be the star or hero of the play. Guy wants to be great and to receive the love and applause of an adoring audience, even if the "audience" is just one other special person. He needs someone to believe in him and his dreams. Though Ballard appears radiantly self-confident and independent, he is actually very dependent on the affirmation, love and recognition of others. He cannot bear going unnoticed or unappreciated.
Guy Ballard also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person he loves feel special. Guy Ballard loves the magic of "being in love" and knows how to keep the romance alive in his relationships. He is also immensely loyal and will defend his loved ones and stand by them to the end - as long as they never offend his pride or betray his trust. However, Guy Ballard likes to be the strong one in his relationships and he really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, Guy needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as he is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with him.
Ballard's strengths are his zest and love for life, his creative power and his warm and generous heart. His primary fault is his tendency to be very egocentric, and so concerned with the impression he is making and with his own creative self-expression that he forgets there is another, larger world that does not revolve around him.
Guy Ballard craves intense experiences and is attracted to aspects of life that are strange, unfathomable, or taboo. He may hide his interests or inclinations, except from those who know Guy very intimately. Guy Ballard is rarely content with himself and his life, and he has an inner urge to be continually going farther or deeper than him ever have before. Guy has also a strong interest in social power and the role that money and economics play in people's lives.
Guy Ballard aims high, dreams big, and has a tremendous sense of what he is capable of achieving. Overconfidence, grandiosity, lack of humility and/or extreme discontent in modest circumstances may be his faults. Generally, however, Ballard's great expectations and enterprising spirit lead to success. Business, especially when there is an element of risk and speculation involved, is ideally suited to Guy.
However he also has a more somber side, which keeps Ballard's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Guy Ballard tends to seesaw between his faith, vision and high aspirations, and his caution and realism (or fear!). He cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and he accepts the need for hard work. His skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
Realistic and practical, Guy Ballard sets goals for himself that are modest enough for him to actually achieve. He is able to tackle long, difficult projects and see them through, for Ballard possesses self-discipline, concentration and perseverance. Guy Ballard also has a strong sense of responsibility and is very conscientious about fulfilling his obligations. Ballard often does things because he feels it is expected of him.
While he is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Guy Ballard also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
Guy is extremely sensitive and imaginative, and he can get lost in his dreams, fantasies and visions. He is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, as well as to the world of color, beauty, and emotion. Guy Ballard is also drawn to mysticism and he has deep spiritual aspirations and yearnings. Gentle and peace loving, Ballard may lack the will and competitive spirit needed to make his way in the world. He is often impractical and may seek to avoid or escape the harsh realities of life.
