Shaun Cassidy has frequent emotional outbursts due to his fiery temper and emotional impulsiveness. Cassidy expresses himself very directly and honestly and no one has to guess what his true feelings are. However, Shaun Cassidy dislikes showing any personal weakness or his need for support, comfort and nurturing. He is often impatient with himself and others. Shaun abhors emotional dependency and dislikes "complainers".
Shaun Cassidy inspires others to take positive action in their lives through his own enthusiasm and eagerness to meet life's challenges, and he is attracted to people who are adventurous, courageous and independent. Shaun is rather bossy but does not like to be with people that he can boss around too much. He enjoys a good fight sometimes. Relationships that are built on mutual respect and emotional freedom are ideal for Cassidy.
Shaun Cassidy becomes very cross if he lacks vigorous physical activity. Cassidy feels his best if he frequently "does battle" on the tennis or racquetball court (or engages in another form of competitive sport).
He is likely to be a great collector of things - a real pack rat in fact - for his belongings give Shaun Cassidy a sense of security and continuity with the past, which is important to him. Antiques or articles with sentimental value from Shaun's past are especially dear to him.
Shaun Cassidy may also cling rather tightly to money and possessions, keeping them "in the family" rather than sharing freely with those outside of his immediate circle.
Cassidy is rambunctious and a little rowdy at times, and he enjoys sharing this kind of energy with his friends. Making noise, cheering at a football game or even getting into a friendly fight all seem like good fun to him. In fact, Shaun Cassidy needs to do these things - otherwise he gets crabby.
Although he is impetuous and easily provoked (as mentioned above), Shaun Cassidy also has a good-natured, live-and-let-live attitude and a sense of humor, which balances it all out. While hotheaded at times, he is usually a good sport.
He is prone to be overly indulgent, overly permissive, overly generous and disinclined to budget or diet or set reasonable limits for himself or others. Subconsciously Shaun Cassidy feels entitled to bounty, and sees no reason to be deprived. At his worst, Cassidy can be greedy but insatiable, and addicted to "the good life". However, if other factors in his chart indicate a capacity for discipline and prudence, there is a positive side to Shaun's emotional indulgence - Cassidy tends to be quite charitable and tolerant, freely giving and willing to embrace others despite their shortcomings.
Although Shaun Cassidy was portrayed above as being assertive and combative, he also has a diametrically opposed tendency - namely the urge to escape all contention and ugliness. This may mellow Shaun's fiery reactions somewhat, or he may seesaw between the two. His softer side is described in the following paragraphs.
Highly sensitive and rather easily taken in, Shaun Cassidy needs to beware of deceiving himself and allowing others to take advantage of his impressionability or gentleness. Daydreaming, fantasizing or other forms of imaginative, escapist behavior (such as watching television excessively or living his life through romance novels) could be something of an addiction for Cassidy. Shaun Cassidy tends to confuse images with reality and needs to learn to be more circumspect and discriminating. Disenchantment with women and close relationships could ensue as a result.
Powerful and complex emotions stir Shaun Cassidy, and his emotional life and closest personal relationships are liable to be tumultuous until Shaun does some deep soul searching. Buried feelings and memories that he does not want to deal with may surface at unexpected times. Holding in fears, secrets or "taboo" thoughts and feelings can only intensify them, and Shaun Cassidy needs to share them with someone who is sympathetic, trustworthy and fairly objective. Ridding himself of emotional compulsions and deeply embedded patterns that do not serve him can be tremendously liberating if Shaun Cassidy is willing to do the necessary inner house cleaning.
He is quietly devoted and faithful to his loved ones and often becomes subservient to his love partner. Shaun Cassidy is more comfortable showing his love by doing or making something for his loved one, or simply being there for her, rather than by making any romantic, soul-stirring declarations. He is timid about expressing too much sentiment or emotion. Shaun Cassidy also underestimates his attractiveness and lovability and doubts his own worthiness of love and appreciation.
Cassidy is a very personable, affectionate, loving friend and will always know many people who love and cherish him. Shaun Cassidy prefers being with others rather than on his own, and he feels very incomplete without a special person in his life to share his love with. Being half of a close, loving relationship is very important to Shaun.
Shaun is a peacemaker - the one who adapts, harmonizes, and makes concessions for the sake of the relationship. His charm and agreeableness make Shaun Cassidy very popular.
He is serious and finds it difficult to enjoy himself in a lighthearted, open and playful way with others. Shaun Cassidy rarely does something purely for pleasure, and can be very close-fisted and parsimonious. Perhaps due to painful separations in his early life, Shaun is very cautious about becoming involved in close relationships and sharing his feelings. Though Cassidy craves love and affection, intimacy is difficult for him. He may become romantically involved with people who do not value him or treat him well. Shaun Cassidy needs to learn to love and value himself before he finds happiness in love.
Shaun Cassidy is extremely sensitive to his surroundings and could feel highly elated one minute and quite down the next. Cassidy tends to avoid the truth about himself and his relationships and could have some strange or peculiar experiences in love relationships.
