drive and ambition
Moby is extremely strong-willed and he pursues his goals and desires with passionate dedication and determination. He is capable of total concentration and tremendous discipline, and he is very difficult to influence or sway once his mind is made up. When Moby wants something, Moby can be very one-sided and almost obsessed with it. He is very instinctive and does not always consciously know why he feels as strongly and deeply as he does.
He also tends to be secretive and unwilling to reveal his aims and intentions, and the intensity of his will and desire may not initially be apparent to others. However, Moby is very forceful in a quiet and subtle way. Moby often manipulates or forces his will upon other people, without being overtly aggressive. He is not interested in confrontation but he is a formidable foe if he encounters opposition or aggression. Moby is courageous and has a rather primitive, raw side as well.
Asserting himself and being direct and forceful about what he wants is often very difficult for Moby. Though he may have a great deal of energy and drive, Moby lacks confidence or simply the desire to put himself and his interests first. On the positive side, Moby can be very unselfish, working more for the benefit of others than for himself.
However, Moby denies his own desires and needs too much, and he is likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage his finest efforts.
Moby has the gift of endurance and perseverance, as well as the willingness to work hard to achieve his objectives. Once he decides he wants something or makes a commitment, Moby will do it "even if it takes forever". Self-discipline comes naturally to Moby and he instinctively realizes that any creative achievement is "10% inspiration, 90% perspiration". Moby chooses practical, realistic goals and pursues them step-by-step in a well-planned, orderly fashion. Moby likes to concentrate on one thing at a time and he does a thorough job. He enjoys working in solitude, and often feels he does his best work when he is alone.
Although he is patient and steady when pursuing an objective, when Moby finally loses patience he loses it completely! In addition to having great tenacity and perseverance, Moby has a daring and rebellious side as well:
He enjoys risky, exciting activities and cannot tolerate too much routine, tedium or inactivity. Unless other factors in his chart suggest staying power and the ability to follow through, Moby may be the person who initiates a new venture but cannot happily participate in the ongoing, sustained effort it requires. "Independent" is Moby's middle name! Moby needs to be a totally free agent, to run his own show. Moby likes to introduce new concepts to people, and then move on.
While Moby is often charged with energy and inspired about what he wants to do (as mentioned earlier), there is a dreamy, visionary, or passive side to him as well. His energy level may fluctuate from being superabundant to rather lax.
Moby has a very active and fertile imagination and Moby's ambitions are never strictly mundane, practical and concrete. Moby has a strong desire to act out his fantasies, dreams, visions and ideals. Artistic creation, drama, or other areas in which Moby can express himself imaginatively are ideally suited to him. Ordinary life seems drab and uninteresting to Moby, and he needs to have some lofty dream or something grander than his own narrow personal interests to live for. Sometimes Moby may be confused about exactly how and where to direct his energy and he often drifts along rather than making clear decisions about what he wants. Moby has a passive side and at times lacks the will power, physical energy, strength and fighting spirit to achieve his aims.
When Moby wants something, he can be amazingly persistent and unrelenting - even a bit obsessed - although quiet about it. In fact Moby may even hide his underlying intentions from friends. Whenever he does anything, he does so wholeheartedly and thoroughly - and if Moby does not want to do something that others wish him to do, he will somehow find a way out of it. Moby is strong, though subtle.
He is very sensitive to the inner qualities of sincerity, honesty, integrity and good will. Moby notices these qualities (or the lack thereof) more quickly than others and brings them up frequently. He is philosophical about life and very perceptive, but may have an exaggerated sense of his own wisdom and depth of understanding of religious, metaphysical, artistic, or intuitive subjects.
Language, words, communication, networking, clarity of speech or writing, being a messenger or go-between - these are key features in his career, as well as how Moby goes about achieving his goals and ambitions. "Work smarter, not harder" is Moby's motto.
