Pope Paul VI
drive and ambition
Pope Paul VI 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. Pope Paul VI 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 and 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. Pope Paul VI 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. Pope Paul VI 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.

In some ways Pope Paul VI may feels that he has little choice about his role in society.

Pope Paul VI delves into the hidden side of life, things which may have been purposefully concealed or repressed, and brings these things to light. Pope Paul VI could come into direct conflict with the authorities or powers-that-be as a result. He is apt to have extraordinary ambitions, and could also become overly zealous and fanatical.
Often Pope Paul VI feels like he is being pulled in two directions - what he needs to do to fulfill his long-range ambitions, and what he actually feels like doing. This may make it difficult for Pope Paul VI to be constant and consistent in pursuing goals, career aims, etc.

He is subject to frequent changes of mood and tends to lose courage quickly.
