The combination of independence, self-reliance (as described in Chapter 2) and perseverance and dedication (as described below) enables Pasquale Gravina to succeed in an independent line of work. Pasquale has both the initiative to take a pioneering step and the persistence to see it through. Gravina should note, however, that his stubbornness and self-reliance often cause him to cling to his own convictions and Pasquale Gravina is often unreceptive to others' suggestions, assistance, advice or support.
He is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of his greatest assets. Once Gravina's course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
Pasquale Gravina has a very practical nature; he wants to see concrete, tangible results for his efforts, and he is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of his "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for he has a great love of the physical world and he wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Pasquale Gravina will work long and persistently, he also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and he wants to enjoy what he has worked for. In fact, Gravina can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Pasquale Gravina also loves the beauty of the natural world and he probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, his needs are simple and he is easy to please. Pasquale Gravina has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless he is forced to do so. He is not very demanding emotionally, though he does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of his faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon Gravina for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, Pasquale Gravina usually maintains his poise and equanimity. Pasquale Gravina also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. He makes an excellent parent, especially if he follows his instincts more often than "the experts".
Pasquale has three major faults: one is his bullheaded obstinacy. The second is his unwillingness to deviate from his safe, predictable routine. And the third is Gravina's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Pasquale Gravina lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to new horizons.
Pasquale Gravina has a clear sense of his own self and he therefore conveys a strong impression to others of who he is and what he wants. Assertive and self-motivated, Gravina can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but he competes and often clashes with other strong individuals. Pasquale Gravina feels a need to be in control of his own life and he can be too self-involved, too immersed in his own interests, and oblivious to others at times.
Gravina's subconscious needs and feelings blend well with his conscious intentions and desires, therefore Pasquale Gravina is able to proceed with his life's pursuits relatively unhampered by internal resistance or inconsistency. Pasquale's male-female relationships will also reflect this state of internal harmony.
Pasquale Gravina has a mature and often somber demeanor. He is serious, reserved, self-disciplined, highly responsible and conscientious. He progresses rather slowly in life, through his own efforts and persistence. He is also rather stern and judgmental, especially with himself. Cautious and careful, it is difficult for him to really let go, be spontaneous and playful. Pasquale likes to be in control of himself.
He prefers more serious kinds of conversation with his friends and neighbors rather than small talk. Because his communication is clear and concise, Pasquale Gravina can impress others by taking control of negotiations or business dealings.
