While John Densmore usually comes across a tactful and diplomatic (as described on the previous page), he can also be surprisingly blunt and direct, especially when people get to know him better. Perhaps John's gift is to say very honest and candid things in a way that will not alienate people. Alternatively, he may vacillate between being gracious and "telling it like it is".
He is a gambler and an adventurer at heart, one who loves to take risks, to discover and explore new worlds, and to travel the untried path rather than the safe, reliable one. He is independent, freedom loving, and often very restless. He needs a lifestyle that provides opportunities for travel, movement, change, and meeting new people. A steady routine, which offers much in the way of security but little in the way of space and freedom, is odious to him.
To John Densmore, life is a journey and an adventure that is endlessly interesting and rich with possibilities, and it may be difficult for him to decide where to focus his attention and efforts. John Densmore probably traveled around and experimented with many different paths before he settled on a particular career. Or he may go from one project to the next, for once the challenge and vital interest is gone, he is very quick to move on. Commitment, discipline, focus and concentration are not his strong points. Densmore can be irresponsible and disinclined to take on the burdens and limitations of adult life.
An incurable optimist, he has big dreams, aspirations and hopes for the future and is usually engaged in pursuing a far-off goal. John Densmore has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush his spirit. Densmore always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. John Densmore has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and he is philosophical about his mistakes. John has the ability to sense future trends, to see the big picture, and he likes to theorize and speculate. However, he gets annoyed with all the details and practical requirements required to implement his theories.
Densmore expresses himself in a very open, direct and straightforward manner and is often blunt and tactless as well. Because he does not take himself too seriously, he may not realize how deeply his candid statements can wound more sensitive souls. In fact, though he may not realize it, John's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of his worst faults.
John Densmore enjoys being in close relationships but also needs freedom and he does not do well with a possessive, clinging, or emotionally demanding partner. He is quite generous, and heartily dislikes pettiness in others. Someone who shares his ideals, his sense of fun and his zest for life would be the right companion for Densmore.
Ownership gives John Densmore a sense of security, and he has a strong attachment to his possessions. John also has a natural instinct for or understanding of economics, finance, trade, and appraising the value of merchandise.
He is assertive, energetic, active, courageous and vital. John Densmore has a very strong physical drive that expresses itself as sexuality and passion, a desire to compete with others, and a tendency to fight. John Densmore has a victorious spirit and the will to win.
While John Densmore does have a strong drive, he frequently holds himself back. One of his challenges lies in learning to endure frustration and to patiently overcome the obstacles in his life (or his own internal caution and resistance!).
John has to overcome considerable hardship in order to fulfill his personal destiny. However, he has the strength and stamina necessary to do so. Support and helpful guidance from his father or other significant men in his life may well be lacking. In fact, their disapproval of John and their harsh criticism are apt to be two of his greatest handicaps, and at times he may feel quite discouraged and alone. But true self-reliance and a solid sense of his own powers may well be the silver lining to that cloud in his life. John Densmore needs to learn to follow his own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what his critics or the authorities may say.
Although he takes himself and his responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of John Densmore that rebels against rules and restrictions and the need to contend with outside authority. Densmore can feel torn between conforming to the rules or fulfilling his obligations, and breaking free of them. His wilder side will now be described.
If he follows his true nature, his life is apt to be unconventional, unusual, controversial and full of insecurity and excitement. John Densmore cannot and will not be forced into a pre-set mold, and John finds it difficult to conform. His offbeat interests and tastes lead Densmore to ventures that others may consider too "far-out" or experimental. John Densmore has a very creative, inventive streak.
Along with his energy and drive, John Densmore has high ideals and an active fantasy life. There is a dreamer and an idealist in Densmore, as well as a doer and a fighter. John wants to win but not at the expense of others, and this may be somewhat of a dilemma for him.
While he is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, John Densmore also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
He is very open and receptive to the spiritual, intangible, and subtle realms, and can easily receive or give conscious guidance based on his inner attunement. John Densmore takes many things for granted, such as the existence of an afterlife or the effects of subtle influences like aromatherapy, spiritual healing, etc. These things seem obvious to John, whereas to many people they are a matter of conjecture or even illusory. John Densmore may not realize he has spiritual gifts because they come so naturally to him.
John Densmore deeply believes in his own power and his ability to survive any change and emerge victorious from any difficulty. John has tremendous inner resources and strength. Intense, strong willed, and zealous, he pursues his desires and goals with complete dedication and singleness of purpose, and he may be somewhat compulsive and even fanatical at times. John likes to live intensely and has no respect for people who are weak or avoid confronting life and their own destiny.
John Densmore has a harmonious and graceful manner along with an appreciation of beautiful, perhaps even artistically furnished surroundings. John may be quite attractive and he is likely to make a favorable impression on everyone.
