His desire for harmonious relationships and surroundings is so strong that he avoids personal confrontation or any expression of intense, unpleasant emotions. Rudolf Nureyev is an idealist who would like to paint the world in pastel colors, and live in peace and harmony with others at all times. He is able to see points of similarity and unity with people who are vastly different from him, and befriend many different types of people. He is a considerate and thoughtful friend, and has a real flair for making others feel accepted and appreciated. Inwardly, Rudolf Nureyev is often torn with indecision and is much more at odds with himself than others would ever guess based on his flawless disposition.
Rudolf has strong attachments to his past, the place where he grew up, his heritage and family traditions. In fact, Rudolf Nureyev may be unable to step out of the habits and roles that he learned as a child. Nureyev's ties to his mother are very strong and Rudolf also seeks nurturing and protection from his spouse and other family members.
He needs love, affection, nurturing and enjoys being pampered - all of which is fine, as long as Rudolf Nureyev is willing to give as well as receive the attention and "babying". Rudolf has a rather childish dependency on loved ones, which can make him cling to them, or be very uncomfortable with any conflict that could conceivably lead to separation. Creating a loving family is certainly a challenge for Rudolf - one that can be enormously satisfying if he can achieve it, and a source of great sadness if he cannot.
Some rather acute fears of being excluded, rejected, left out in the cold or separated from loved ones can make Rudolf Nureyev either extremely cautious about getting close to people or clingy toward whoever gives him any warmth or security. Rudolf Nureyev tends to withhold and clamp down on many of his feelings and craves nurturing and security, perhaps feeling that they are unacceptable or will never be satisfied. Learning to be open and trust others to nurture him is important to him. His earliest years, especially Nureyev's relationships with his mother, will determine whether Rudolf Nureyev will overcome his fears or retreat behind a mask of self-sufficiency and indifference.
In addition to Rudolf's rather introverted, serious or self-contained side, he has a wild streak and urge for emotional freedom that breaks through erratically. Rudolf Nureyev craves both stability and excitement, and the conflict between these two impulses can make Nureyev rather tense and irritable. However, they can also balance each other out. His freer and unpredictable side will now be described.
Rudolf Nureyev tends to have strange quirks, idiosyncrasies or domestic habits, and he may feel that he does not fit in with "normal" people. These could be endearing eccentricities, or truly outlandish tastes and behavior. Establishing a steady routine and rhythm in his life and relationships would be very beneficial but may not be easily achieved. Ideally Rudolf Nureyev could create a unique lifestyle that affords him a lot of personal space, freedom and flexibility to follow his own somewhat erratic rhythms - yet at the same time provides him with a modicum of order and consistency. There is also a current of emotional discontent or restlessness within Rudolf that may be reflected in unstable personal relationships of the on again/off again variety. Rudolf Nureyev craves change and excitement whether he realizes it consciously or not.
His love feelings and desires are easily aroused but he may find it difficult to sustain his romantic interest in relationships after the initial, exciting "chase and conquest". Rudolf Nureyev enjoys a dynamic partner with a strong independent streak, and he does not like things to become too peaceful or predictable in the love arena. Rudolf wants to see sparks fly once in awhile, even if it means instigating a fight.
Promoting beauty, the arts or entertainment can make Rudolf Nureyev very happy. Rudolf wants to contribute something positive and loving to the world at large and he wants to be recognized for his beauty, artistic gifts or loving generosity. Rudolf Nureyev may be "married to" his work - namely he may be more involved in his career than in his private life. Nureyev is a natural host or diplomat.
Intimacy does not come easily to Rudolf Nureyev and he may appear cold or unfeeling to others due to his emotional reserve and caution. Perhaps due to painful relationships and separations in his early life, Nureyev does not trust others very easily and it takes a long time to break down all of his barriers and defenses. He may feel that he has few friends or people that really care about him. Rudolf Nureyev needs to learn to value and love himself more and to express his appreciation for others more openly.
Chronically discontented, he is likely to be somewhat unstable in matters of love relationships and affection. Rudolf Nureyev tends to be on the defensive and fear rejection and lack of acceptance. Rudolf has to learn to overcome his fears and general shyness with people.
