Johann Strauss I
drive and ambition
He is very socially oriented and works well with others. He may be active in community affairs or unite with others of similar ideals and intentions to work toward a common goal. Progressive and democratic, Johann Strauss I is not concerned with hoarding personal power or having authority over others. He is a team player.
New, unconventional methods appeal to Strauss, especially ideas that involve bringing people together or creating fairer working conditions - such as networking, profit sharing, and job sharing. New technologies also interest him.
His energy level is high but somewhat erratic. Johann Strauss I can be impatient, rebellious and inconstant in pursuing his aims.
Johann Strauss I often buys things on impulse and he can be reckless with his material resources and money. Johann has certain possessions that he is extremely attached to and possessive of.
Strauss frequently meets a tremendous amount of resistance whenever he wants to assert himself in a decisive way or do something just for himself. This resistance stems from within (in the form of self-doubt, fear, or a heavy sense of responsibility toward others), as well as from practical and circumstantial limitations. Especially when initiating a project or acting independently, Johann Strauss I may tell himself that he is not really prepared, or that he is not good enough (yet), and he puts a lot of pressure on himself. Despite the obstacles, setbacks or lack of support he encounters, Johann Strauss I can accomplish a great deal with patience and perseverance. However, he is apt to aim too low and not realize how much he is truly capable of.
Johann Strauss I should try to recognize that he does not have to justify his existence or prove his worth through his accomplishments.
Ordinary life often seems drab and uninteresting to Johann and he must have something that stirs his imagination - a vision or ideal or dream to motivate him. Johann Strauss I has a strong urge to act out his fantasies or to live his dream, and Johann Strauss I will act where others merely talk or dream. Artistic creation, drama or other areas in which Strauss can express himself imaginatively are excellent for him.
Work that only serves his own narrow personal interests does not satisfy Johann Strauss I. He may lack the competitive edge, the fighting spirit, the "me first" attitude that is often required for material advancement and success. He also tends to either overestimate or underestimate his own power and abilities.
A strong home base may be the most important factor in Johann's choice of career and his success or lack thereof. Family support is crucial to Johann Strauss I, and he would not sacrifice his family for the sake of any advantage or achievement in the outside world. If Johann Strauss I has a solid foundation and a healthy relationship with his parents, he is likely to fulfill any of his aspirations for success.
Johann Strauss I is blessed with fluidity of speech and thought, and he uses his intellectual gifts or communicative skills to achieve his ambitions in life. Convincing, selling, persuading, reasoning, bringing ideas into public awareness are also part of Strauss' professional life.
Achieving his professional objectives or advancing in his career often requires considerable sacrifice on Johann's part. Specifically, Johann Strauss I often feels that he must deny or at least compromise some very essential aspect of his in order to succeed professionally, protect his reputation, or what have you - and this is something Strauss may or may not be willing to do. Pure, unrestrained self-expression may well be more important to him than "going places" in a worldly sense. This is not to say Johann Strauss I will not progress or succeed, only that he will do it on his own terms.
