drive and ambition
John Lennon seesaws between being too pushy, confrontational, and insistent on doing things his way, and being too eager to please, without a clear, definite goal of his own. John Lennon strives for a balance between acting independently and assertively - and working cooperatively and interdependently with others. He may feel frustrated at times that he cannot simply do what HE wants to, that he must always accommodate the needs and desires of others. Or he may feel hesitant to act in a positive, assertive manner if he does not have the support and approval of other people. Either way, he is not a loner. John Lennon achieves his goals by collaborating and joining forces with others, by being a team player. He is very concerned with the concept of fairness and becomes quite indignant and vocal if he senses someone is being taken advantage of. John Lennon avoids extremism and favors a balanced, moderate approach to living. He is unlikely to push himself too hard or to become fanatically driven to reach his goals.
John Lennon expects to work hard for anything he accomplishes and he has no patience for people who do not pull their own weight. Work is a passion for John at times, and he pushes himself too hard. Lennon can also be too demanding of the people he works with.
If his energy is not invested in a job or career, John Lennon can become fanatic about his health, and may exercise or "work out" vigorously and perhaps excessively.
John Lennon has a very active and fertile imagination and his ambitions are never strictly mundane, practical, and concrete. John Lennon has a strong desire to act out his fantasies, dreams, visions, and ideals. Artistic creation, drama, or other areas in which Lennon can express himself imaginatively are excellent for him. Ordinary life seems drab and uninteresting to John, and he needs to have some big dream or something larger than his own narrow personal interests to live for. Sometimes he may be confused about exactly how and where to direct his energy and he often drifts along rather than making clear decisions about what he wants. John Lennon has a passive side and at times lacks the will power, physical energy, strength, and the fighting spirit to achieve his aims.
When John Lennon wants something, he can be amazingly persistent and unrelenting, even a bit obsessed, although quiet about it. In fact John may hide his deep purposes and intentions even from friends. Whenever he does a thing, it is done wholeheartedly and thoroughly - and if John Lennon does not want to do something that others wish him to do, somehow he will find a way out of it. Lennon is strong, though subtle.
Others may find John Lennon a bit strange and conditions in his immediate surroundings may not be as harmonious as Lennon would like them to be. Not very assertive about protecting his interests, he could attract people who will take advantage of him.
Lennon is intensely competitive, and may engage in furious battles of will, numerous conflicts, and possible public controversy, on his way to gaining his objectives. John Lennon could be drawn to activities that are dangerous, in the line of fire, so to speak. He puts himself on the line. Anger or recklessness could be his downfall.
In many ways John's rise in the world is an easy one, aided by his personal charm and attractiveness, his ability to please people, and his excellent social instincts. Artistic ambitions are also an aspect of this.
John's profession is apt to involve communications, language, carrying messages, sales, speaking, or teaching - put simply, getting ideas across. A great deal of social involvement, networking, and personnel skills also play a significant part in his professional role.
Lennon may well have an unusual destiny or pivotal role to play in a drama that involves much more than his own personal ambitions and professional aims. This could involve uncovering secrets, bringing deception, cruelty, or injustice to light, or making fundamental changes in some field. John's work may also include dealing with life and death situations, crises, and emergencies. Somewhere along the way, fate may force Lennon's hand - and it may require some self-sacrifice on his part. On the other hand, his real work may be rather subtle - a quiet transformation of a particular area or field. John Lennon is meant to do in-depth work.
He is very generous and his style of life is likely to be grandiose. A very gracious host, John Lennon displays a warm heart and gladness when he meets other people. John has the ability to radiate his inner happiness and show his affection for others.
He is very reserved and may try to avoid contact with others as much as possible. John Lennon tends to suppress or hide his feelings and could see himself as unappreciated or worthless. He is likely to go his own way and appreciate solitude.
His resistance and stamina are inclined to be a bit low and John Lennon tends to be easily influenced by others. He may leave himself open to being corrupted by others and should guard against involvement in situations that he may later regret.
