In addition to having an independent spirit, as described in the previous chapter, René Angélil is also objective, pragmatic and quite ambitious. He is likely to work his way to the top of the ladder in some corporation, academic community or the like through his astute strategies combined with his willingness to take risks. René Angélil aims to be the authority, the one in charge. At times his impulsiveness may be at odds with his conservative, responsible side (which is discussed below). Angélil could experience ongoing internal tension between pleasing himself and acting spontaneously versus doing what he needs to do to get ahead and realize his long-range ambitions.
Serious, disciplined and quietly ambitious, he is driven to prove himself and to achieve material accomplishments and success. His work, his position in the world, and his contributions to society are very important to Angélil. René Angélil will persevere through enormous hardship and frustration in order to reach a goal he has set for himself, and he often sacrifices much in the area of personal relationships and home life in order to do so.
René Angélil has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show his inner feelings and needs. René Angélil seems to always be in control, capable, efficient and strong. He is often the person in the family or group who is given more responsibility (and more work) than the others. He is highly conscientious and even as a child he possessed great maturity, soberness, and worldly wisdom.
He is basically a pragmatic realist, and though he may have all sorts of dreams, ideals and colorful theories, he feels that the ultimate test of a concept is its practical usefulness. René has an innate shrewdness and business sense, and there is a bit of the cynic in him as well.
He is clear-headed, detached and objective, and is not swayed by emotional dramatics. He is often authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. René Angélil has a great respect for tradition and even if he does not agree with certain laws, he will abide by them or strive to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Cautious and conservative, René Angélil plays by the rules.
He is subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to get to know intimately, and never superficial. He is a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving himself (and others) permission to feel, play, be spontaneous and silly, and sometimes weak and vulnerable is not easy for Angélil.
Angélil's strong points are his depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. His faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to Angélil. René Angélil has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy him; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. René Angélil may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
The above description of René Angélil is so deeply ingrained that he has little objectivity and often little appreciation for other, different ways of approaching life. René Angélil tends to be one-sided. There is little ambiguity in his makeup and he generally knows what he wants and what will make him happy.
Realistic and practical, René Angélil sets goals for himself that are modest enough for him to actually achieve. He is able to tackle long, difficult projects and see them through, for Angélil possesses self-discipline, concentration and perseverance. René Angélil also has a strong sense of responsibility and is very conscientious about fulfilling his obligations. Angélil often does things because he feels it is expected of him.
Although he takes himself and his responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of René Angélil that rebels against rules and restrictions and the need to contend with outside authority. Angélil can feel torn between conforming to the rules or fulfilling his obligations, and breaking free of them. His wilder side will now be described.
The unusual and unorthodox appeal to Angélil, and he does not allow tradition, convention or other people's expectations to dictate how he is going to live his life. René Angélil craves freedom, adventure, excitement and discovery, and is not afraid of change. René Angélil possesses inventive and creative genius.
While he is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, René Angélil also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
He is imaginative and sensitive to anything colorful, beautiful or magical. He is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, music and mysticism. His spiritual values color René's whole perspective and approach to life. He is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
René Angélil has a harmonious balance between his body, soul and spirit. He enjoys intellectual challenges from others, but tends to form his own mental attitudes and philosophies of life. He may be interested in studying human nature and matters of health.
Angélil seems to lack self-confidence and has a sense of anxiety and insecurity that has no obvious cause. René Angélil tends to withdraw and his outlook in general could be a bit too negative. René Angélil should beware of letting his emotional tension react to his physical well-being.
