Although Maurice Ravel has very strong feelings and often reacts to situations passionately (as described on the previous page), he is basically very tender and softhearted. There are at least two sides to Ravel: a rather jealous and guarded side, and a much more lenient, generous and forgiving side (discussed below).
At heart he is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Maurice Ravel as anything in the outer world, though he may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting his inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, he has a rich inner life, though Ravel may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Maurice Ravel usually keeps to himself.
Maurice shows great sensitivity and empathy toward others and often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. He is tolerant, forgiving and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. Maurice has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and he often feels the pain of others as if it were his own. Maurice Ravel sympathizes with the needy, the disadvantaged and the misfits of society. He is capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker or minister. However, Ravel tends to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of his kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon him. Maurice has little sense of boundaries, or of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not his strong points.
He is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and he tries to avoid open conflict. Ravel will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Ravel tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Maurice Ravel does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
His gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for he possesses great sensitivity, inspiration and limitless imagination. Maurice Ravel has a strong affinity for beauty and love.
His faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than take strong, definite action to change his life for the better. He also tends to become so detached from his immediate environment that he lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around Ravel more than it bothers him.
Maurice Ravel has a very dramatic, creative, expressive nature and he loves to perform. Maurice enjoys being the center of attention and he seeks to shine, to excel, and to be outstanding in some unique way. He is very involved in his own creativity and self-expression, and takes great pleasure in developing and using his special talents, whether these are artistic, athletic, or intellectual. Maurice Ravel has a strong sense of pride.
The above description of Maurice Ravel is so deeply ingrained that he has little objectivity and often little appreciation for other, different ways of approaching life. Maurice Ravel tends to be one-sided. There is little ambiguity in his makeup and he generally knows what he wants and what will make him happy.
He is direct, energetic, sometimes aggressive and combative. Maurice Ravel often feels that he needs to fight to get what he wants, and he tends to have a "me-first" attitude that angers or irritates others. He is hasty, restless, impatient and sometimes reckless.
Maurice Ravel undergoes deep, transformative changes in his life with relative ease and a minimum of conscious resistance. Because he does not avoid the depths, Ravel has access to a lot of personal power and strength. Without realizing it or seeking it, Maurice is apt to have quite a potent effect on the people he comes into contact with, even superficially. Others sense that Maurice Ravel is a force to be reckoned with.
