Serious and responsible, he tries to carry the world on his shoulders and rarely let others know that he needs help and support. Peter Gabriel denies or ignores his own emotional needs and feels that others will not accept him if he appears "weak". He is especially uncomfortable with emotional dependency, and will tell himself and others (even children) not to be a "baby". Peter Gabriel needs to accept that no one is self-sufficient all the time, and to be gentler with his "childish" emotional needs and wants. To others, he may appear to be rather hard-nosed and tough, with a businesslike attitude toward their personal concerns and feelings. Actually, no one is a truer friend. His feelings and loyalties run deep, but he often does not let people know how much he cares. Peter Gabriel also needs to learn to relax, enjoy himself, and play sometimes.
He is emotionally expressive and often dramatizes his feelings, acting them out or blowing them out of proportion. Peter Gabriel cannot hide his instinctive emotional reactions to people or situations, and he does not make any pretenses about his personal sympathies or antipathies.
Peter Gabriel has a childlike openness and playfulness which is very appealing to others, but which sometimes gets him into trouble, as Peter takes risks on impulse or whim.
He is temperamental and impatient and can be very difficult to live with. Peter Gabriel tends to respond with a temper tantrum (overt or subtle) if his desires are frustrated. Peter Gabriel becomes very irritable and bad-tempered if he does not have enough vigorous physical activities or other outlets for his aggressive, feisty spirit.
Although Gabriel gets hot under the collar rather easily (as mentioned above), he also has a certain degree of emotional self-control and composure which enables Peter Gabriel to rein in some of his more aggressive tendencies. This side of his is described below.
Peter Gabriel has an inner poise and balance that enables him to act in a cool, efficient manner during emotional traumas and stress. He keeps perspective and objectivity about highly charged emotional issues - sometimes to the chagrin of others who might wish that Gabriel would react more intensely. Peter is quietly supportive and faithful to his friends and loved ones.
Although Peter Gabriel was portrayed above as being assertive and combative, he has a diametrically opposed tendency as well: The urge to escape all contention and ugliness. This may mellow Peter's fiery reactions somewhat, or he may seesaw between the two. His softer side is described in the following paragraphs.
He is a dreamer, attracted to the inner, mystical side of life, and may have trouble distinguishing the real from the imagined or illusory. Peter does not enjoy confrontation and becomes very evasive when problems in his personal life or relationships arise, escaping into his imagination in order to avoid dealing with them directly. He is also rather gullible and naive about people, especially if his sympathy has been aroused. Peter Gabriel is very sensitive to music and can use it to bring himself into emotional balance and harmony.
Powerful and complex emotions stir Peter Gabriel, and his emotional life and closest personal relationships are apt to be tumultuous until Peter does some deep soul searching. Buried feelings and memories that he does not want to deal with may surface at unexpected times. Holding in fears, secrets, or "taboo" thoughts and feelings can only serve to intensify them, and Peter Gabriel needs to share them with someone who is sympathetic, trustworthy, and fairly objective. Ridding himself of emotional compulsions and deeply embedded patterns that do not serve him can be tremendously liberating, if Peter Gabriel is willing to do the necessary inner house cleaning.
He is open and unconventional in his attitude towards love relationships, romance, and sex. He enjoys socializing, bringing people together, and having many friends of both sexes. Peter Gabriel values friendship very highly and is, in fact, more comfortable being a friend than a lover. Peter desires an intellectual rapport or spiritual bond with his love partner, but deep intimacy and emotional bonding do not come easily to him. The roles of "husband" and "wife" in the traditional sense do not appeal to Gabriel, and he abhors jealousy and possessiveness since he feels that no person truly "belongs" to another. Peter Gabriel appreciates relationships where his love partner allows him plenty of freedom and is not very emotionally demanding.
When he cares about someone, Peter Gabriel likes to serve them by doing small thoughtful favors, helping them, or doing something tangible to show his affection.
Peter Gabriel has also considerable artistic or creative skill. In fact, Peter is suited for a profession involving beauty or pleasure or making people happy in some way.
While he may seek loving relationships and an "everlasting" love, this is not easy for Peter Gabriel to find - or more precisely, to sustain. When Peter becomes romantically involved with someone, either he or the other person will create rifts once a certain level of comfort and predictability has been achieved. Even if there is no outward break in the relationship, a certain emotional aloofness or dissatisfaction is apt to develop. This is because Peter Gabriel really wants both closeness and absolute freedom - a combination that is difficult to attain. However, if he does not at least attempt to honestly fulfill both of these urges, events seemingly out of the blue will wreak havoc in Peter's closest relationships.
He is strongly attracted to the opposite sex and his relationships tend to be harmonious. Peter Gabriel will probably marry for love and his mate will be a friend to him as well as a lover. The atmosphere in his family life is affectionate and protective.
