Warm, loving and generous in his relationships, Mikhail Baryshnikov inspires tremendous devotion and loyalty in his loved ones. This is good, since he would never settle for anything less! Mikhail wants to be adored and worshipped like the royalty he feels he is, and it is difficult for anyone to resist the warmth and attention Baryshnikov lavishes on those he cares about. Mikhail Baryshnikov has a great deal of pride and needs to be recognized and appreciated. The way to really hurt his feelings is to ignore him. He is genuine, sincere, and has a strong sense of personal integrity. Mikhail Baryshnikov hates emotional games and dishonesty.
He is emotionally expressive and often dramatizes his feelings by acting them out or blowing them out of proportion. Mikhail Baryshnikov cannot hide his instinctive emotional reactions to people or situations, and he does not make any pretenses about his personal sympathies or antipathies.
Mikhail Baryshnikov has a childlike openness and playfulness that is very appealing to others but sometimes gets him into trouble, as Mikhail takes risks on an impulse or a whim.
He is easygoing, agreeable and tolerant, willing to overlook others' mistakes, forget the past, and begin anew on a positive note. He enjoys making others comfortable and happy, and he sometimes overdoes his generosity. Mikhail Baryshnikov often feels that "everything will turn out all right no matter what I do", thereby becoming lazy and lackadaisical.
There is another side to Mikhail Baryshnikov as well, a rather introverted, self-contained, even pessimistic side which tempers his good cheer and generosity, as discussed below.
Serious and emotionally reserved, Mikhail Baryshnikov was probably never an exuberant, playful child, and he rarely expresses himself in a spontaneous, childlike manner. He is cautious about letting others get close to him and sometimes withdraws from people altogether. At times, Mikhail Baryshnikov feels lonely or isolated, even when he is with people. Learning to appreciate his own company and find satisfying solitary activities is essential to Mikhail's emotional well-being.
In addition to Mikhail's rather introverted, serious or self-contained side, he has a wild streak and urge for emotional freedom that breaks through erratically. Mikhail Baryshnikov craves both stability and excitement, and the conflict between these two impulses can make Baryshnikov rather tense and irritable. However, they can also balance each other out. His freer and unpredictable side will now be described.
His emotional attitudes and instincts tend to be quite liberal. Mikhail Baryshnikov does not want to be caged or dictated to, and he feels everyone is entitled to do as they please in their personal and emotional affairs. Baryshnikov tends to surround himself with people who are unusual, creative, open-minded, unpredictable, restless and changeable, and his relationships - with women in particular - may be somewhat unstable as a result. However, Mikhail Baryshnikov enjoys an element of surprise and unpredictability.
Tremendously softhearted and sympathetic, Mikhail Baryshnikov gives very selflessly and devotedly to those he loves and often allows others to become overly dependent upon him. More compassionate than passionate, Mikhail Baryshnikov may become romantically involved with a person because he or she expresses a need for love, rather than out of mutual pleasure or attraction.
He is drawn to sensitive, imaginative, gentle souls - poets, musicians, dreamers - or to someone Mikhail feels he can have a deep spiritual relationship with. Mikhail Baryshnikov idealizes love and has a very beautiful, romantic vision of what love relationships can be.
Mikhail Baryshnikov often hides his affection, or finds his feelings difficult to express or get across to the person he loves. Being openly affectionate and trusting often does not seem safe to Mikhail. He may feel his love will not be appreciated or reciprocated. Mikhail Baryshnikov may get involved in secret love relationships or fall in love with a person who is quite unavailable to him. Love and sacrifice often seem to go hand in hand for Mikhail Baryshnikov - i.e. having to give something up to be with the one he loves, or having to relinquish a person or an aspect of an important love relationship.
It is absolutely essential for Mikhail Baryshnikov not to deceive himself when it comes to love relationships, romance, or the true nature of others. Mikhail tends to be in love with love, and can be incredibly naive and easily seduced. Confusion, disappointments, and regrettable mistakes in both emotional and financial matters may ensue. On the other hand, it is also possible that Mikhail Baryshnikov will use his attractiveness or charm to deceive others. Clarity, directness, honesty and realism regarding romantic relationships and people in general need to be developed.
He is prone to getting involved in highly intense, even obsessive relationships - "fatal attractions", so to speak. At its darkest, this urge for intensity in the personal arena may compel Mikhail Baryshnikov to choose friends or mates who are rather dangerous or dishonorable characters with a penchant for manipulating and inflicting pain on their "loved ones". On the other hand, Baryshnikov may be tempted to use his own sexuality or charm to play the same sort of game, to use love or friendship as a bargaining chip or to gain power over others. Even if his intentions are basically good, Mikhail Baryshnikov will find that his closest relationships are rather tumultuous affairs in which some rather unsavory aspects of his character (such as jealousy and the desire to dominate or to be a victim) keep surfacing. These are qualities that need to be understood and ultimately outgrown.
