drive and ambition
Peter Gabriel 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. Peter Gabriel 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 to, 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. Peter Gabriel 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. Peter Gabriel 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.
Quick-witted and sharp-tongued, Peter Gabriel enjoys arguing, debating, and contesting other people's opinions. He is quite forthright and sometimes tactless. Gabriel can be very convincing about his point of view, but he is prone to a "hard-sell" approach which sometimes backfires. Challenging mental work is a good avenue for Peter's aggressive intellect.
Peter Gabriel has a very active and fertile imagination and his ambitions are never strictly mundane, practical, and concrete. Peter Gabriel has a strong desire to act out his fantasies, dreams, visions, and ideals. Artistic creation, drama, or other areas in which Gabriel can express himself imaginatively are excellent for him. Ordinary life seems drab and uninteresting to Peter, and he needs to have some big dream or something larger than his own narrow personal interests to live for. Sometimes he may be confused about exactly how and where to direct his energy and he often drifts along rather than making clear decisions about what he wants. Peter Gabriel has a passive side and at times lacks the will power, physical energy, strength, and the fighting spirit to achieve his aims.
To achieve his long-range goals and ambitions, the process must be interesting and mentally stimulating, as Gabriel gets bored with work that is not challenging intellectually. Peter Gabriel needs variety and social stimulation as well. One problem he may have is saying the wrong thing at the wrong time, or to the wrong person. Peter needs to watch his words. His tongue or even his sense of humor can get Peter Gabriel in trouble with superiors at times.
Peter Gabriel 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 Gabriel has. He tends to gain his objectives through his personal charm and appeal. Peter Gabriel also possesses a fine aesthetic sense which could be a prominent factor in his career.
He is attracted to careers which are somewhat unusual, creative, or avant-garde, and which offer Peter Gabriel a maximum amount of freedom and independence. The nine-to-five routine is really not his cup of tea. Peter may make his living in diversified ways rather than focusing on one specific area or talent, and he is happiest when he can create a place in the world for his unique combination of different talents and interests. It is hard and unnatural for Peter Gabriel to try to fit himself into a ready-made mold.
Gabriel relates to others with great feeling and empathy and is able to feel out the mood of people so that he can appeal to their deepest emotional concerns. Peter Gabriel is likely to build his personal relationships on a spiritual basis.
