Because he is supportive and nurturing (as mentioned in the previous chapter), and also practical and well grounded (as described below), Michael Damian is a great source of solace and emotional support for other people. Michael Damian is actually more stable and solid than his rather mellow demeanor would suggest.
He is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of his greatest assets. Once Damian's course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
Michael Damian has a very practical nature; he wants to see concrete, tangible results for his efforts, and he is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of his "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for he has a great love of the physical world and he wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Michael Damian will work long and persistently, he also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and he wants to enjoy what he has worked for. In fact, Damian can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Michael Damian also loves the beauty of the natural world and he probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, his needs are simple and he is easy to please. Michael Damian has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless he is forced to do so. He is not very demanding emotionally, though he does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of his faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon Damian for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, Michael Damian usually maintains his poise and equanimity. Michael Damian also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. He makes an excellent parent, especially if he follows his instincts more often than "the experts".
Michael has three major faults: one is his bullheaded obstinacy. The second is his unwillingness to deviate from his safe, predictable routine. And the third is Damian's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Michael Damian lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to new horizons.
Leading groups and classes and being involved in community efforts, social activities, events or movements are areas where Michael Damian really shines and expresses his creativity. An awareness of politics or the larger social impact of individual actions comes naturally to him.
His life is apt to be blessed with more than his share of helpful friends, fortuitous relationships, and doors opening up to him at just the right time. Because Michael Damian is usually willing to share and to give back to others in a generous way, he continues to generate success in his life no matter how unfortunate prevailing circumstances are. Michael should beware, however, of becoming an opportunist.
However he also has a more somber side, which keeps Damian's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Michael Damian 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.
He is often plagued by feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions and self-doubt. Michael Damian has a cautious, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to his obligations and duties. Michael Damian tends to work and struggle more than necessary and to take himself too seriously.
Michael Damian deeply believes in his own power and his ability to survive any change and emerge victorious from any difficulty. Michael 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. Michael likes to live intensely and has no respect for people who are weak or avoid confronting life and their own destiny.
Michael Damian feels spiritually bonded with his friends, partners or associates. He is likely to have a good rapport and harmony in his relationships with the opposite sex and enjoys spending time with his partner.
