drive and ambition
He is aspiring, enterprising, and forever following some bright and distant star, planning some new venture or investigating new potentials. He is definitely "upwardly mobile" in either a material or spiritual sense. Plácido Domingo aims high and is not content simply with a quiet, secure existence. Plácido likes to stretch his limits, to see how far he can go, and to take risks. He is a positive thinker, expects success for himself, and is philosophical about failures. Domingo is flexible and he bounces back from disappointment rather quickly, usually with another hopeful new idea he wants to try. His enthusiasm and confidence are contagious and enable Plácido Domingo to enlist the aid and support he needs for his projects. However, Plácido Domingo sometimes promises more than he can actually achieve, because he is overly optimistic or pays insufficient attention to the practicalities involved.
He also tends to get distracted and to have too many things going at once. Although it is very difficult for him, there are times when Plácido Domingo simply must develop commitment, perseverance, and persistence in order to make his dreams and goals a concrete reality. Too often Plácido Domingo falls short of what he could attain because he is unwilling to persist through the difficult or less exciting times.
He also enjoys competition and usually does not take it too seriously. Sports and entrepreneurial endeavors are good ways to channel Plácido's energy.
Quick-witted and sharp-tongued, Plácido Domingo enjoys arguing, debating, and contesting other people's opinions. He is quite forthright and sometimes tactless. Domingo 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 Plácido's aggressive intellect.
Conflicts in his early childhood are apt to be played out in Plácido's later professional life. Unresolved rivalry with a parent or sibling may result in antagonism toward superiors or competitors. If Plácido Domingo can work through some of these past events, he will have even more energy and drive to achieve positive goals.
