Pope John XXIII
drive and ambition
Pope John XXIII avoids direct confrontation as much as possible and is uncomfortable with aggressiveness, competition and personal power. His ego drive is not very dominant and Angelo Roncalli is not especially ambitious or eager to push his way to the top. He may feel inadequate in situations that call for strong, forceful action. The only instance in which Pope John XXIII will really fight is when he senses that his loved ones - or something dear to him- are being jeopardized, in which case he is a fierce defender. Pope John XXIII has a very strong protective side. He acts on impulse and instinct and may lash out at anyone he perceives as threatening to Pope John XXIII's home or family. However, Pope John XXIII will rarely initiate a confrontation. His goals also tend to be very personal and centered on family closeness and inner satisfaction rather than worldly achievement.
He is sensitive to stress and does not handle a high-pressured, competitive atmosphere very well. Pope John XXIII is very touchy, irritable and difficult to live with when there are many demands or stressful situations at work. His energy level varies and is very dependent on the emotional harmony (or lack thereof) in his home. A supportive partner is very instrumental in helping Angelo Roncalli to achieve his goals and desires.
Angelo Roncalli is attracted to feisty, dynamic, strong-willed people, and he seems to need a lot of fireworks in his personal relationships. Pope John XXIII can be very combative, or get involved with people who are. Ideally Pope John XXIII will join with people who are energetic and ambitious, but not too domineering or aggressive.
He enjoys risky, exciting activities and cannot tolerate too much routine, tedium, or inactivity. Unless other factors in his chart suggest staying power and the ability to follow through, Pope John XXIII may be the person who initiates a new venture but cannot happily participate in the ongoing, sustained effort it requires. "Independent" is Angelo Roncalli's middle name! Pope John XXIII needs to be a totally free agent, to run his own show. Pope John XXIII likes to introduce new concepts to people, and then move on.
While Pope John XXIII is often charged with energy and inspired about what he wants to do (as mentioned earlier), there is a dreamy, visionary, or passive side to him as well. His energy level may fluctuate from being superabundant to rather lax.
Unlike some who have hopes and fantasies, Angelo Roncalli is a person who tries to live out these dreams, no matter how impractical or fantastic they seem. Pope John XXIII has a quixotic, idealistic streak. He may be more inspired to work for some higher cause than simply for his own personal achievement.
He is very inspirational, but may lack the energy to put his ideas into action. Pope John XXIII is inclined to feel tired a lot and may not have enough push to follow through. Angelo Roncalli can be rebellious at times, but he knows his limits.
He may have to overcome something in his background or personal past in order to achieve his long-range goals and ambitions. Sometimes Pope John XXIII is apt to feel pulled in two different directions - what others expect of him or what he needs to do to progress, versus what his old conditioning or his emotional predisposition would have him do. Overcoming the pull of the past is the key.
He is a bit restless and always seems to be in motion. Pope John XXIII probably had the desire to go his own way early in life, wanting to learn from his own mistakes and experiences. His plans for the future are far-reaching and Pope John XXIII may choose an unusual career.
