drive and ambition
Wilde 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. Oscar Wilde aims high and is not content with a mere quiet, secure existence. Oscar 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. Wilde 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 Oscar Wilde to enlist the aid and support he needs for his projects. However, Oscar Wilde 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 Oscar Wilde simply must cultivate commitment, perseverance and persistence in order to make his dreams and goals reality. Too often Oscar Wilde falls short of what he could attain because he is unwilling to persist through the difficult or less exciting times.
Oscar Wilde also enjoys competition and usually does not take it too seriously. Sports and entrepreneurial endeavors are good ways to channel Oscar's energy.
Quick-witted and sharp-tongued, Oscar Wilde enjoys arguing, debating, and contesting other people's opinions. He is quite forthright and sometimes tactless. Wilde can be very convincing about his point of view, but he is prone to a "hard-sell" approach that sometimes backfires. Challenging mental work is an apt venue for Oscar's aggressive intellect.
He is intensely willful and can create trouble for himself by rather unconsciously forging ahead, without realizing that he is trampling over people. Sometimes, if Oscar Wilde cannot get what he wants directly, he will try to dominate, manipulate or seek power in a covert, subtle sort of way.
He is likely to feel depressed frequently and has a strong desire to overcome it, but may not be able to count on much support from others. Oscar Wilde tends to separate himself from others and he feels like being expelled from society.
He is likely to play a role of great responsibility in his life and Oscar Wilde takes his tasks very seriously, which places considerable burden on him as a result. He may have been unusually ambitious or mature at a tender age. Oscar Wilde progresses and attains his aspirations through dedication and perseverance, rather than fortune.
Indecision and confusion over his ambitions or direction in life may hold Oscar back from achieving anything solid, especially in his early life. He is very much a dreamer and his interests and inclinations may not translate very readily into concrete goals. Personal glory or accomplishment can never be Wilde's sole motivation or drive in life. Ministering to others in some way may be his calling, however. Alternatively, Oscar Wilde could use his dreamy, imaginative energies in creative ways - in the arts, music or entertainment.
In many ways Oscar's rise in the world is an easy one, aided by his personal charm and attractiveness, his ability to please people and his excellent social instincts. Artistic ambitions are another manifestation of such.
Oscar Wilde has a tendency to say things that may unintentionally put off those in a position to advance his career and professional ambitions. Perhaps it is not what Oscar says, but the manner in which he says it or the timing. At times Oscar Wilde is apt to feel that he must stifle certain thoughts and opinions in order to succeed in reaching his goals. Mostly, however, Wilde will need to be shrewd, tactical and conscious of how his words will affect his listeners.
