In addition to Mike's strong personal loyalties and the devotion he feels for his nearest and dearest relations (as described on the previous page), Mike Pagliarulo has great compassion and sensitivity toward people in all walks of life. Mike Pagliarulo has a gift for understanding and appreciating a wide variety of art and life styles.
Moreover, Pagliarulo should be careful not to be taken advantage of by others. His good heart and innocent, unsuspecting attitude can make Mike Pagliarulo a victim of others' greed. If this happens, Mike needs to avoid becoming bitter and resentful about life, and instead, to allow his great compassion and sensitivity to blossom and shine, rather than be dimmed by a few mistakes.
At heart he is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Mike Pagliarulo 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 Pagliarulo may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Mike Pagliarulo usually keeps to himself.
Mike 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. Mike has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and he often feels the pain of others as if it were his own. Mike Pagliarulo 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, Pagliarulo 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. Mike 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. Pagliarulo will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Pagliarulo tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Mike Pagliarulo 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. Mike Pagliarulo 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 Pagliarulo more than it bothers him.
Pagliarulo is very attracted to world travel, foreign cultures and studies that expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world.
Mike Pagliarulo is philosophically inclined and concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting an overall picture of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy his mind much of the time.
There is an ongoing, subtle conflict within Mike Pagliarulo 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 Mike 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 Mike Pagliarulo is denying or suppressing the messages from his subconscious or emotional self.
Ideally, Mike Pagliarulo will learn to accept and express these two different sides of himself. Should he fail to do so, Pagliarulo 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.)
Mike Pagliarulo has a harmonious balance between his body, soul and spirit. He enjoys intellectual challenges from others, but tends to form his own mental attitudes and philosophies of life. He may be interested in studying human nature and matters of health.
