While José Carreras 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 José'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 José Carreras, 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. José Carreras 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. Carreras 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. José Carreras has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush his spirit. Carreras always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. José Carreras has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and he is philosophical about his mistakes. José 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.
Carreras 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, José's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of his worst faults.
José Carreras 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 Carreras.
Ownership gives José Carreras a sense of security, and he has a strong attachment to his possessions. José also has a natural instinct for or understanding of economics, finance, trade, and appraising the value of merchandise.
Realistic and practical, José Carreras 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 Carreras possesses self-discipline, concentration and perseverance. José Carreras also has a strong sense of responsibility and is very conscientious about fulfilling his obligations. Carreras often does things because he feels it is expected of him.
While he is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, José Carreras 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. José Carreras 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 José, whereas to many people they are a matter of conjecture or even illusory. José Carreras may not realize he has spiritual gifts because they come so naturally to him.
José Carreras deeply believes in his own power and his ability to survive any change and emerge victorious from any difficulty. José 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. José likes to live intensely and has no respect for people who are weak or avoid confronting life and their own destiny.
