Although Marc Anthony approaches life instinctively and intuitively (as described on the previous page), he also has a very analytical, rational, unemotional side as well, as discussed below. He may at times feel conflicting urges: to live passionately and dangerously, or to be conservative and play it safe.
At heart Marc Anthony is modest and humble, and he rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Marc Anthony has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and he prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Anthony can be relied upon to be careful, efficient, and thorough in his work and he takes pride in doing a job well. What he may lack in self-confidence Marc Anthony often makes up for in skill - developing expertise, technical knowledge, and competency in some specialized area. He is adept at using his hands to create or fix things, and meticulous attention to detail and careful craftsmanship are his forte. Some would say he is a little too meticulous, for Anthony can be extremely critical and petty if everything is not done exactly as he thinks it should be, and he worries about things that other people consider trivial and unimportant. Marc Anthony likes to organize, categorize, and arrange everything into a logical system, and he is often distinctly uncomfortable when something does not fit into a neat category. Disorganization vexes Anthony. He probably wishes that he were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Anthony can be mercilessly self-critical as well. Whether in his environment or within himself, Anthony tends to focus on the flaws, with a desire to improve, refine, and perfect. He is strictly factual, truthful, and scrupulously honest in his self-estimation, and he often does not give himself enough praise or credit.
He is also highly discriminating and may be especially particular about his diet, hygiene, and health habits. Marc has high aesthetic standards and refined sensitivities, and will be bothered by elements in his surroundings (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that others overlook. His tastes are simple, understated, but refined. Coarseness, bluntness, and vulgarity really offend him. Anthony can be difficult to live with sometimes because of his fastidiousness, his sensitivity, and his idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though Marc Anthony seems rather cool and self-contained, he has a very helpful nature and he enjoys serving others. He is content to be in a supportive, assisting role rather than in the lead. He is quietly devoted to the ones he cares for.
He is careful and cautious in his approach to life, realistic, practical, and disinclined to gamble. Marc Anthony analyzes before he acts. He is too serious sometimes. Allowing himself to play and to make mistakes would be of great health for Anthony!
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to Anthony. Marc Anthony has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy him; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Marc Anthony may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
He is blessed with abundant optimism, self-confidence, and cheerful generosity. His good will and friendliness win him many allies. Marc Anthony also has grand visions and aspirations, and the desire to succeed in life in a big way. Marc expects the best, and usually gets it.
However he also has a heavier side which keeps Anthony's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Marc Anthony 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 doubting or "heavy" side is described below.
Marc has to overcome considerable hardship in order to fulfill his personal destiny. However, he does have 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 Marc 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. Marc Anthony needs to learn to follow his own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what his critics or the authorities say.
Although he takes himself and his responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of Marc Anthony that rebels against rules and restrictions and answering to outside authority. Anthony can feel torn between conforming or fulfilling his obligations, and breaking free of them. His wilder side will now be described.
Innovative, original, unorthodox, and unconventional, he identifies with the role of rebel, reformer, or iconoclast. Marc Anthony insists upon a great deal of personal freedom and does not easily adapt himself to others' needs and wishes. Marc needs a lifestyle that allows him to be spontaneous. Often he feels that he is somehow different from other people and outside the mainstream of society.
While he is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Marc Anthony 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. Marc Anthony 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 Marc, whereas to many people they are a matter of conjecture or even illusory. Marc Anthony may not realize he has spiritual gifts because they come so naturally to him.
Inwardly he is zealous and fanatical, though he may hide his personal desires and intentions, and the intensity of his feelings. He is driven by a deep inner sense of destiny and mission and an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition. Marc has an infatuation with power and is incredibly willful and stubbornly fixated on achieving greatness or being someone Special. Marc Anthony tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma, and he often seeks to emulate them. Marc has potential for tremendous good or tremendous evil.
Marc Anthony tends to think and act bravely and has a positive and firm demeanor. Marc has what it takes to make his own way in life. He may be a bit excitable, but never shy away from a good argument.
His comprehension is exceptional and Marc Anthony reacts to everything very quickly. Anthony shows deep respect for knowledge and feels that he must learn everything there is to know. Studying probably was encouraged early on and Marc Anthony was raised to be successful.
