Johnny Weir seems much more objective, unemotional and matter-of-fact than he really is. Despite his fussiness and perfectionism (described in the previous chapter), he is actually very caring and loving. Johnny Weir needs to make sure to openly express his feelings because otherwise, others do not realize how much he cares about them.
Johnny has powerful emotional attachments to the past, his family, his childhood, places he associates with safety and security, and his beginnings. It is very important to Weir to maintain a connection with his roots and heritage and keep family bonds strong. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, Weir tends to cling to whatever is dear to him - be it a person, a familiar place, or a cherished possession.
He is sympathetic, nurturing, supportive and very sensitive to the emotional needs of other people. Johnny likes to be needed and to care for others, and he often worries about the people he loves. Johnny Weir has a very strong need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, and much of his life centers on his home. He is more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society. Kindness, consideration and tenderness are more meaningful to Johnny Weir than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
He is primarily emotional and his views are often dominated by his feelings and his own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic or abstract principles. It is difficult for him to judge situations fairly and objectively because his personal sympathies and loyalties usually factor in. Johnny Weir takes things very personally and sometimes builds a wall around himself to shield himself from pain and rejection. Johnny Weir feels rather shy and vulnerable at heart. He also tends to be moody and experiences frequent mood swings. Johnny Weir needs to have a place and time in his life to withdraw, introspect, dream and replenish himself; otherwise Johnny Weir becomes cranky and unhappy with those around him.
Johnny Weir functions in an instinctive, irrational manner and likes to immerse himself in creative activities where he can express his feelings, imagination and instincts. Weir often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Johnny Weir also has a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
His compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are Weir's strong points. His faults include an inability to let go of the past and move forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency for self-pity when facing hardship.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Weir. Johnny Weir 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. Johnny Weir may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Johnny Weir is loving and well loved by others, and has a strong need for relationships that offer kindness, friendship and affection. His artistic and creative powers are also well developed and Johnny does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Weir, as are his personal appearance and attractiveness.
Although Johnny Weir prefers harmony and accord, he also has a confrontational side.
He is a positive, vital, energetic and active go-getter. He enjoys competition, and his initiative and self-confidence make Johnny Weir a winner.
Johnny Weir aims high, dreams big, and has a tremendous sense of what he is capable of achieving. Overconfidence, grandiosity, lack of humility and/or extreme discontent in modest circumstances may be his faults. Generally, however, Weir's great expectations and enterprising spirit lead to success. Business, especially when there is an element of risk and speculation involved, is ideally suited to Johnny.
While Johnny Weir deeply appreciates beauty and has a great desire for love, he is in no way frivolous or indiscriminate in his affections. Weir can be very frugal and sparing with both money and emotions.
While Johnny Weir 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!).
However he also has a more somber side, which keeps Weir's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Johnny Weir tends to seesaw between his faith, vision and high aspirations, and his caution and realism (or fear!). He cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and he accepts the need for hard work. His skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
Realistic and practical, Johnny Weir sets goals for himself that are modest enough for him to actually achieve. He is able to tackle long, difficult projects and see them through, for Weir possesses self-discipline, concentration and perseverance. Johnny Weir also has a strong sense of responsibility and is very conscientious about fulfilling his obligations. Weir often does things because he feels it is expected of him.
Although he takes himself and his responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of Johnny Weir that rebels against rules and restrictions and the need to contend with outside authority. Weir can feel torn between conforming to the rules or fulfilling his obligations, and breaking free of them. His wilder side will now be described.
At times Johnny Weir may feel an uncontrollable urge to radically alter his direction in life or to act in ways that seem eccentric or at least highly atypical. When his life becomes too predictable, Johnny may do something to upset the status quo, sometimes without realizing why or how he is doing it. These impulses may seem at odds with his conscious intent and desires for himself, and can be unsettling. However, there is a streak of unconventionality and creative genius in Johnny Weir that needs to be expressed now and then.
