drive and ambition
Pelé seesaws between being too pushy, confrontational and insistent on doing things his way, and being too eager to please, without a clear, definite goal of his own. Pelé strives for a balance between acting independently and assertively - and working cooperatively and interdependently with others. He may feel frustrated at times that he cannot simply do what HE wants and that he must always accommodate the needs and desires of others. Or he may feel hesitant to act in a positive, assertive manner if he does not have the support and approval of other people. Either way, he is not a loner. Pelé achieves his goals by collaborating and joining forces with others, by being a team player. He is very concerned with the concept of fairness and becomes quite indignant and vocal if he senses someone is being taken advantage of. Pelé avoids extremism and favors a balanced, moderate approach to living. He is unlikely to push himself too hard or to become fanatically driven to reach his goals.
He is a doer and an achiever. Energetic, courageous, and often impatient, Pelé will forge ahead with his plans regardless of others' reservations. In fact, Edson do Nascimento often feels other people get in his way and he prefers working on his own. Pelé is active, assertive, and rather competitive as well.
While Pelé enjoys challenging himself to extend his abilities or try new activities, he is apt to bite off more than he can chew. Failures or accidents due to overestimating his prowess or capacities and being overly eager and poorly prepared, may result. Fortunately these disappointments or blunders do not dampen Pelé's spirits or his ambitions permanently; he has a lot of resilience and optimism. Most likely Pelé will need to develop his physical coordination and sense of timing in order to do some of the activities he dreams of doing.
Although enterprising and proactive, Pelé is also capable of ample much self-discipline, patience and effort. He may swing from confidence and trust in the future to pessimism and doubt, when it comes to achieving his aims in life.
Edson do Nascimento frequently meets a tremendous amount of resistance whenever he wants to assert himself in a decisive way, or do something just for himself. This resistance comes from within (in the form of self-doubt, fear, or a heavy sense of responsibility to others), as well as from practical and circumstantial limitations. Especially when initiating a project or acting independently, Pelé may tell himself that he is not really prepared, or that he is not good enough (yet), and he puts a lot of pressure on himself. Despite the obstacles, setbacks, or lack of support he encounters, Pelé can accomplish a lot in a patient, steady fashion. However, he is apt to aim too low, and not realize how much he is truly capable of.
Pelé should try to recognize that he does not have to justify his existence or prove his worth by his accomplishments.
Pelé is apt to receive much publicity and popularity through his professional pursuits, for he has a way of winning the hearts and trust of many people. Pelé has an instinct for what the masses of people will respond to emotionally, and this feeling-sense of what other people want enables him to succeed in sales, promotion, and so on. His career could also involve protecting and caring for people, and nurturing them in some capacity.
Pelé tends to want to take the easy road to success, and unless other factors in his chart suggest a capacity for effort or a lot of energy, laziness could interfere with achieving whatever ambitions Edson do Nascimento has. He tends to gain his objectives through his personal charm and appeal. Pelé also possesses a fine aesthetic sense which could be a prominent factor in his career.
