John Heinz has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life that colors everything he does. Caution and realism are his virtues though John limits himself at times by being too careful, shy or fearful, not believing in himself enough, or lacking the required assertiveness. Others find John Heinz difficult to get to know intimately, as Heinz tends to distance himself from them or to outwardly adopt a rather stern, "adult" demeanor.
His vitality tends to be a bit low and John may have to fight against the tendency to be inactive. Easily discouraged, John Heinz is inclined toward pessimism. Perhaps his upbringing was too authoritative, causing problems in his relationship with his parents.
John Heinz tends to be very sensitive to his surroundings and is strongly influenced by the prevailing conditions surrounding him. John may feel that he has more obligations than he can properly handle, and that it is hopeless to even try.

Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which John Heinz instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that he is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for him. The direction John Heinz needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
He is capable of withstanding outside influences and remaining constant and steady on his path, but when under stress John Heinz becomes downright obstinate and implacable, resisting any change no matter how necessary or desirable the change may be. Tenaciously trying to preserve the status quo and hold on to what he has, he is apt to ignore the subtle signals he receives about needing to do something differently, which often leads to a crisis.
John Heinz needs to learn the limits of his ability to control life, and to accept and even embrace change and loss of the familiar, in order to allow for new life and growth. "Letting go" is a major life lesson for him. Heinz also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward his appetites and desires, as John Heinz tends to overindulge and/or deny himself excessively.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where John Heinz has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Heinz will see these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual dependency involved. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
