Gandhi works well with the public and has an instinct for what the public wants and will respond to. Having a "nest" is not especially important to Mohandas, and he may invest more of his emotional energy into his career or public life than in his private life. Providing and caring for others, in a professional capacity is very likely.
Mohandas has conflicting emotional desires and needs which complicate his personal life and relationships. He may feel that he cannot depend on his love partner to take care of him or perhaps Gandhi cannot decide what he really wants in love relationships: a parent or a lover.

Mohandas Gandhi has a buoyant, cheerful disposition and he reaches out to others in a warm, open, friendly way.

Although Mohandas Gandhi was portrayed above as being assertive and combative, he has a diametrically opposed tendency as well: The urge to escape all contention and ugliness. This may mellow Mohandas' fiery reactions somewhat, or he may seesaw between the two. His softer side is described in the following paragraphs.
The beauty and harmony of his surroundings has a very powerful effect on Gandhi's emotions. He is very sensitive and cannot stand to be in an atmosphere where there is discord or dissonance.

Mohandas has intense desires and feelings and his personal relationships are deeply emotional, passionate, and often stormy and painful as well.

In love relationships, Mohandas Gandhi desires a deep, intense, passionate union with his beloved and forms very strong emotional bonds and attachments. Mohandas "marries" the person he loves at a very deep emotional level, and is often extremely possessive and jealous of any threat to that union. Gandhi can be very demanding with his love partner. Mohandas Gandhi tends to be somewhat suspicious of even platonic, friendly relationships his partner has. If he is ever betrayed, Mohandas Gandhi is capable of hating with as much force and intensity as he once loved. He is attracted to people who have an aura of mystery about them.
Gandhi is very much aware of his personal appearance, attractiveness, and charm, and he can be rather narcissistic.

Mohandas uses tact or charm to get what he wants rather than intense effort or force. His desire for love and affection colors everything Mohandas Gandhi does.
Mohandas Gandhi is extremely amorous and it is difficult for him to go without romantic relationships for very long.

Doing creative work or artistic work can also satisfy the very strong desire for love and beauty that Mohandas feels.
Money is apt to be an issue in Gandhi's life, not because he does not have it but because he cannot or will not hold on to it. Mohandas Gandhi has a free-handed, generous, open attitude and would prefer to spend and enjoy and partake in the pleasures of the moment rather than save, discipline himself, or budget. At his worst, Mohandas Gandhi wants an easy ride, and friends will often let Mohandas freeload because he is such an agreeable, friendly, pleasant sort. Or, he could let other people take advantage of his hospitality and tolerance.
Gandhi also avoids confronting difficult issues in relationships simply because it is too much trouble or too petty. Mohandas Gandhi just want to have a good time.
It is absolutely essential for Mohandas Gandhi not to deceive himself when it comes to love relationships, romance, or the true nature of other people. Mohandas 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 result. On the other hand, it is also possible that Mohandas Gandhi 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.
Intimate relationships are the arena in which Mohandas Gandhi plumbs the depths of which he is capable. He could fall intensely and fanatically in love and be obsessive, extraordinarily jealous, or deeply involved with partners who are. Gandhi will experience both heaven and hell in his closest relationships. There is undoubtedly a peculiarly karmic, fated quality to these relationships which, though difficult, will teach Mohandas Gandhi things about himself and about love that he could learn in no other way. Often Mohandas Gandhi will enter relationships which he knows rationally will be very difficult but, which he nevertheless cannot resist. Mohandas Gandhi needs not berate himself for these "bad" choices; instead he needs to learn what he can from them.
