drive and ambition
Éluard 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. Paul Éluard aims high and is not content with a mere quiet, secure existence. Paul 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. Éluard 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 Paul Éluard to enlist the aid and support he needs for his projects. However, Paul Éluard 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 Paul Éluard simply must cultivate commitment, perseverance and persistence in order to make his dreams and goals reality. Too often Paul Éluard falls short of what he could attain because he is unwilling to persist through the difficult or less exciting times.
Paul Éluard also enjoys competition and usually does not take it too seriously. Sports and entrepreneurial endeavors are good ways to channel Paul's energy.
He has passionate convictions and will fight for them when challenged. Paul Éluard is willing to dedicate a great deal of his energy and force to an important cause, and he will act decisively on his beliefs, rather than simply espousing them.
Sometimes Éluard gets so involved and identified with his ideas that he cannot really be receptive to anyone who opposes him philosophically.
He may find it difficult to communicate with others and has a tendency to quarrel. It is hard for Paul Éluard to express himself and his ideas and opinions may often be challenged by others. Because of frequent disagreements, Paul is likely to feel that his relationships are incompatible.
Eccentric, individualistic and very excitable, Paul Éluard can create a stir wherever he goes. If he is not careful, Éluard could often find himself involved in quarrels or even violent assaults. To avoid trouble, it would be wise for Paul Éluard to learn to deal with others without anger.
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 Paul Éluard goes about achieving his goals and ambitions. "Work smarter, not harder" is Éluard's motto.
Paul Éluard needs to have a strong spiritual base to his life in order to achieve anything in concrete, external terms. That is, fulfilling any ambitions he has for himself will depend upon whether or not Éluard feels connected to a higher source. Clarifying his own role or direction in life may take Paul Éluard some time, so he is apt to be a "late bloomer" when it comes to outward expression and success in material terms.
Deep, compelling drives which Paul Éluard does not entirely understand are apt to be the source of his rather extraordinary ambitions. He may find that a drive for dominance, power, and control arises out of the rather problematic and intense relationships Paul had with one or both of his parents. If Paul Éluard is willing to delve deeply into his own fears and inner life, clearing away much of the conditioning of his earliest years, he will indeed discover tremendous inner resources which can be used to fuel his rise in the world.
Paul Éluard tends to have a very deep soul-life and a great need for deep spiritual understanding and truth. Paul has the ability to open himself up to the spiritual dimensions and what he may learn could prove to be of permanent value to him.
