Although Ian Astbury is quite proud and likes to show off and impress other people with his accomplishments and appearance (as described on the previous page) - he is really quite practical, solid, and down to earth (as discussed below). Because of this, he is likely to actually earn the right to be admired - that is, to have actually done something to be proud of.
He is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of his greatest assets. Once Astbury's course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
Ian Astbury has a very practical nature; he wants to see concrete, tangible results for his efforts, and he is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of his "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for he has a great love of the physical world and he wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Ian Astbury will work long and persistently, he also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and he wants to enjoy what he has worked for. In fact, Astbury can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Ian Astbury also loves the beauty of the natural world and he probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, his needs are simple and he is easy to please. Ian Astbury has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless he is forced to do so. He is not very demanding emotionally, though he does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of his faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon Astbury for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, Ian Astbury usually maintains his poise and equanimity. Ian Astbury also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. He makes an excellent parent, especially if he follows his instincts more often than "the experts".
Ian has three major faults: one is his bullheaded obstinacy. The second is his unwillingness to deviate from his safe, predictable routine. And the third is Astbury's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Ian Astbury lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to new horizons.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Astbury. Ian Astbury has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. He is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Ian Astbury may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Ian Astbury feels that he has the support of his family or others in his environment for his creative efforts and personal goals, which enables him to act with confidence. He is able to satisfy both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. He is in harmony with himself and is therefore an effective individual.
Impulsive, restless and spontaneous, his life is apt to be somewhat unstable and full of sudden changes. Ian Astbury is extremely independent and craves excitement, adventure, freedom and discovery. Astbury has a rebellious streak and he often feels he is unusual and different from society's mainstream. The unorthodox and the novel appeal to him.
Astbury has a strong will and great determination and is willing to work hard to reach his goals. Ian Astbury often takes on more than his share and labors untiringly, sparing himself no pain in his work. Ian should guard against over-exerting himself physically.
