drive and ambition
Clift is aspiring, enterprising and forever following a bright and distant star, planning some new venture or investigating new potential. He is definitely "upwardly mobile" in either a material or spiritual sense. Montgomery Clift aims high and is not content with a mere quiet, secure existence. Montgomery likes to stretch his limits, see how far he can go and take risks. He is a positive thinker, expects success for himself, and is philosophical about failures. Clift is flexible and he bounces back from disappointments rather quickly, usually with another hopeful new idea he wants to try. His enthusiasm and confidence are contagious and enable Montgomery Clift to enlist the aid and support he needs for his projects. However, Montgomery Clift sometimes promises more than he can actually achieve, because he is overly optimistic or pays insufficient attention to the practicalities involved.
He also tends to get distracted and to have too many things going on at once. Although it is very difficult for him, there are times when Montgomery Clift simply must cultivate commitment, perseverance and persistence in order to make his dreams and goals reality. Too often Montgomery Clift falls short of what he could attain because he is unwilling to persist through the difficult or less exciting times.
Montgomery Clift also enjoys competition and usually does not take it too seriously. Sports and entrepreneurial endeavors are good ways to channel Montgomery's energy.

Montgomery Clift likes to be the one in charge in his home and he puts a lot of energy into making it the way he wants it.
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, Montgomery Clift may be the person who initiates a new venture but cannot happily participate in the ongoing, sustained effort it requires. "Independent" is Clift's middle name! Montgomery Clift needs to be a totally free agent, to run his own show. Montgomery likes to introduce new concepts to people, and then move on.

He is suited for freelancing, or professions that involve lots of change, innovation, variety, irregular schedules, and the like. Montgomery Clift should expect the unexpected and numerous ups and downs in the course of his life. He may change course often, and try many different things.
Clift can be rather antagonistic toward those in authority. Even without realizing it, he may convey this attitude and he may well be threatening to those in power.
