Because he is supportive and nurturing (as mentioned in the previous chapter), and also practical and well grounded (as described below), Pierre Balmain is a great source of solace and emotional support for other people. Pierre Balmain is actually more stable and solid than his rather mellow demeanor would suggest.
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 Balmain's course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
Pierre Balmain 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 Pierre Balmain 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, Balmain can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Pierre Balmain 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. Pierre Balmain 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 Balmain for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, Pierre Balmain usually maintains his poise and equanimity. Pierre Balmain 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".
Pierre 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 Balmain's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Pierre Balmain lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to new horizons.
Leading groups and classes, and being involved in community efforts, social activities, events or movements are areas where Pierre Balmain really shines and expresses his creativity. An awareness of politics or the larger social impact of individual actions is natural to him.
Pierre Balmain tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. Pierre Balmain has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
He is very open and receptive to the spiritual, intangible, and subtle realms, and can easily receive or give conscious guidance based on his inner attunement. Pierre Balmain takes many things for granted, such as the existence of an afterlife or the effects of subtle influences like aromatherapy, spiritual healing, etc. These things seem obvious to Pierre, whereas to many people they are a matter of conjecture or even illusory. Pierre Balmain may not realize he has spiritual gifts because they come so naturally to him.
He is strong-willed, forceful and independent. Balmain knows what he wants, but sometimes may act too impulsively, causing quarrels or disagreement with others. Pierre Balmain tends to judge himself and others quite severely, but he is very sincere, honest and trustworthy.
Pierre Balmain has a basic need to fit in with others and is always willing to cooperate. He enjoys working with others as a team and is a well liked comrade.
