Though Julian may seem breezy, independent and freedom loving (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he is in fact not completely happy without a partner. He enjoys being on the move and exploring new territory, but wants a traveling companion! Julian yearns for fulfilling, yet non-restricting relationships.
Harmony and balance are his keynotes. Julian Ríos instinctively understands the need to accommodate other people's interests and desires, and he is always fair and willing to meet others half way. Tactful, diplomatic, and quite socially aware, Julian does all he can to avoid conflict and discord. His spirit is one of cooperation and compromise, and he often achieves through charm and discretion what would have been impossible to achieve with a direct, forceful approach.
Getting along with and pleasing others may be too important to Julian since he can be too dependent on the approval and opinions of other to make his own decisions. Julian will rarely act without seeking the counsel and feedback of other people. He prefers sharing and doing things with others rather than on his own. Being alone feels very unnatural to Julian Ríos, and he has a strong need for a partner and intimate one-on-one relationships.
Julian Ríos invests a great deal of his energy in personal love relationships and he is very idealistic and romantic about marriage. Julian Ríos seeks a partner who is his equal intellectually, and who is capable of a mental relationship as well as a physical and emotional one. He makes a thoughtful, considerate friend or lover, and he enjoys the traditional symbols of love - courtship, flowers, etc. Julian perceives relationships like an art that requires time, attention and creative effort. Julian Ríos appreciates a partner who is subtle and polished, never coarse or blunt.
Fairness and equality, both in his personal relationships and in the world, are extremely important to him. If Julian Ríos fights about anything, it is often about something he feels is unfair and unbalanced. Balance is very important to Julian. He believes in moderation in all things and avoids fanaticism and extremism at all costs.
Julian Ríos also has a strong need for beautiful, harmonious surroundings and a natural sense of artistic style and grace, which is reflected in the way Julian dresses and furnishes his home and workspace. Everything must be aesthetically pleasing and appropriate. Working with people as a counselor, advisor, consultant, or negotiator, or in an artistic field such as design or photography would be fulfilling to him.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Julian. Julian Ríos 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. Julian Ríos may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
There is an ongoing, subtle conflict within Julian Ríos between his conscious attitudes and aspirations and his deeper emotional and subconscious beliefs, needs and feelings. This creates considerable inner stress and sometimes paralyzing indecision, mostly due to the fact that Julian may be trying to follow a path that is at odds with his subconscious desires. Chronic tightness or tension in his body may well be a signal that Julian Ríos is denying or suppressing the messages from his subconscious or emotional self.
Ideally, Julian Ríos will learn to accept and express these two different sides of himself. Should he fail to do so, Julian is likely to be drawn into many relationships with people who reflect his denied or repressed qualities and seem to make his life difficult. (Also read chapter 4 in order to get a better picture of the duality described here.)
Julian 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 Julian 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. Julian Ríos needs to learn to follow his own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what his critics or the authorities may say.
Julian Ríos feels physically strong and fit and has a healthy sex-life. His actions are governed by a strong sense of honor and integrity. Julian is ambitious with a talent for organizing and a strong desire to succeed, insuring by that his professional success.
