Although Peter North is quite proud and likes to show off and impress other people with his accomplishments and appearance (as described on the previous page) - he is really quite practical, solid, and down to earth (as discussed below). Because of this, he is likely to actually earn the right to be admired - that is, to have actually done something to be proud of.
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 North's course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
Peter North 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 Peter North 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, North can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Peter North 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. Peter North 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 North for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, Peter North usually maintains his poise and equanimity. Peter North 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".
Peter 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 North's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Peter North lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to new horizons.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to North. Peter North has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy him; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Peter North may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
There is an ongoing, subtle conflict within Peter North, between his conscious attitudes and aspirations, and his deeper emotional and subconscious beliefs, needs, and feelings. This creates considerable inner stress and sometimes paralyzing indecision, mostly due to the fact that Peter may be trying to follow a path that is at odds with his subconscious desires. Chronic tightness or tension in his body may well be a signal that Peter North is denying or suppressing the messages from his subconscious or emotional self.
Ideally, Peter North will learn to accept the two quite different aspects of his and to express both of them. If he cannot do this, North is apt to attract many relationships into his life with people who reflect his denied or repressed qualities, and who seem to make his life difficult. (Read also chapter 4 in order to get a better picture of the duality described here.)
Peter has lofty aspirations but does not struggle or labor to achieve them. His self-confidence and inner harmony attract success and benefit him in an almost magical way. His optimism and cheerful generosity also win North many allies and successes in life.
North always seems to find the right words to verbalize his feelings, especially in regard to love and friendship. Peter North also has a keen sense of beauty and he probably appreciates art, music or poetry.
North seems to lack self-confidence and has a sense of anxiety and insecurity that has no obvious cause. Peter North tends to withdraw and his outlook in general could be a bit too negative. Peter North should beware of letting his emotional tension react to his physical well-being.
