Prince Charles of Wales
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. Prince Charles aims high and is not content simply with a quiet, secure existence. Charles 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. Windsor 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 Prince Charles to enlist the aid and support he needs for his projects. However, Prince Charles 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 Prince Charles simply must develop commitment, perseverance, and persistence in order to make his dreams and goals a concrete reality. Too often Prince Charles 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 Charles' energy.
Windsor plays vigorously and enjoys competitive games and physical rough-and-tumble activities. Athletics and/or physical activities have great appeal for him. Prince Charles takes the initiative in sports and also in romantic relationships: he is ardent in pursuing anything he desires.
Prince Charles has a strong sense of mission and he instinctively knows that to achieve anything great, one must eliminate superfluous activities, and give oneself wholly to the goal one wishes to accomplish. His zeal, enthusiasm, and clarity of purpose enable Prince Charles to succeed and to achieve whatever he aims for. Prince Charles has a strong will, but he is usually quiet and understated about it.
Prince Charles has a desire to accomplish projects with others for the good of all. Charles could form associations or groups of people where he can further the pursuit of mutual objectives. His achievements are likely to generate prestige for Windsor.
His desire for a beautiful home, a comfortable, pleasing lifestyle, and time to relax and enjoy himself may well be the motivation for going out into the world and trying to achieve outward success. Prince Charles may seesaw at times between his professional drives and desire for status, and the appeal of a rich personal life and home comforts.
Prince Charles needs to have a strong spiritual base to his life in order to achieve anything in concrete, external terms. That is, fulfilling any ambitions he has for himself will depend upon whether or not Windsor feels connected to a higher source. Clarifying his own role or direction in life may take Prince Charles some time, so he is apt to be a "late bloomer" when it comes to outward expression and success in material terms.
Prince Charles possesses great zeal and passion for achieving his aspirations in life, and can be something of a fanatic when he sets his sights on a goal. Charles could do research work, psychological investigation, even detective work - anything that involves delving beneath the surface for hidden elements. A great love of mystery and exploring the unknown fuels many of Charles' personal ambitions.
Prince Charles seems to lack confidence in himself and worries about being compromised or exposed. He may feel that he is unable to defend himself and tends to withdraw from close relationships. It is more important to Charles to do the right thing than to be popular.
Although Prince Charles vigorously pursues his own interests, he can work together with others just as energetically. He is a fighter, a good colleague and a comrade in arms. Very active in the career world, Charles stands up for work and is willing to fight for it.
