In addition to Rick's strong personal loyalties and the devotion he feels for his nearest and dearest relations (as described on the previous page), Rick Rubin has great compassion and sensitivity toward people in all walks of life. Rick Rubin has a gift for understanding and appreciating a wide variety of art and life styles.
Moreover, Rubin should be careful not to be taken advantage of by others. His good heart and innocent, unsuspecting attitude can make Rick Rubin a victim of others' greed. If this happens, Rick needs to avoid becoming bitter and resentful about life, and instead, to allow his great compassion and sensitivity to blossom and shine, rather than be dimmed by a few mistakes.
At heart he is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Rick Rubin as anything in the outer world, though he may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting his inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, he has a rich inner life, though Rubin may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Rick Rubin usually keeps to himself.
Rick shows great sensitivity and empathy toward others and often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. He is tolerant, forgiving and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. Rick has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and he often feels the pain of others as if it were his own. Rick Rubin sympathizes with the needy, the disadvantaged and the misfits of society. He is capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker or minister. However, Rubin tends to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of his kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon him. Rick has little sense of boundaries, or of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not his strong points.
He is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and he tries to avoid open conflict. Rubin will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Rubin tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Rick Rubin does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
His gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for he possesses great sensitivity, inspiration and limitless imagination. Rick Rubin has a strong affinity for beauty and love.
His faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than take strong, definite action to change his life for the better. He also tends to become so detached from his immediate environment that he lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around Rubin more than it bothers him.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Rubin. Rick Rubin has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. He is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Rick Rubin may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
His conscious intentions and goals are frequently opposed by his unconscious beliefs and desires. If Rick Rubin overrides his instincts and emotions because they seem to lead him in a direction diametrically opposed to the one he consciously desires, his emotions can become unruly. Poor relationships with women and/or difficulties in close one-on-one relationships are also a reflection of this tendency. However, if Rick Rubin attends to his emotional urges and feelings and listens to the voice of his intuition, dreams and gut feelings, he will derive greater satisfaction from a more balanced life.
He is blessed with abundant optimism, self-confidence and cheerful generosity. His good will and friendliness win him many allies. Rick Rubin also has grand visions and aspirations, and the desire to succeed in life in a big way. Rick expects the best, and usually gets it.
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 Rick's whole perspective and approach to life. He is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
