Even though he is emotionally intense and can be somewhat of a pressure cooker at times (as described on the previous page), Sigmund Freud is very grounded and stable at heart, as described in more detail below. His essentially sensible, practical nature enables Sigmund Freud to direct some of his powerful feelings and drives into productive channels.
He is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of his greatest assets. Once Freud's course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
Sigmund Freud has a very practical nature; he wants to see concrete, tangible results for his efforts, and he is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of his "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for he has a great love of the physical world and he wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Sigmund Freud will work long and persistently, he also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and he wants to enjoy what he has worked for. In fact, Freud can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Sigmund Freud also loves the beauty of the natural world and he probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, his needs are simple and he is easy to please. Sigmund Freud has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless he is forced to do so. He is not very demanding emotionally, though he does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of his faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon Freud for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, Sigmund Freud usually maintains his poise and equanimity. Sigmund Freud also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. He makes an excellent parent, especially if he follows his instincts more often than "the experts".
Sigmund has three major faults: one is his bullheaded obstinacy. The second is his unwillingness to deviate from his safe, predictable routine. And the third is Freud's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Sigmund Freud lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to new horizons.
Sigmund Freud invests a tremendous amount of his creative energy into his relationships with others, particularly his marriage or other close partnerships. Sigmund feels that he needs others in order to be all that he can be, and he is disinclined to solitary activities and endeavors.
Working with people on a one-to-one basis to bring about mutual understanding, harmony, and satisfaction is an area in which Sigmund Freud can really excel. Counseling or negotiating are talents of his.
Innovative, original, unorthodox and unconventional, he identifies with the role of a rebel, reformer or iconoclast. Sigmund Freud insists upon a great deal of personal freedom and does not easily adapt to others' needs and wishes. Sigmund needs a lifestyle that allows him to be spontaneous. He often feels that he is somehow different from other people and outside of society's mainstream.
He is very open and receptive to the spiritual, intangible, and subtle realms, and can easily receive or give conscious guidance based on his inner attunement. Sigmund Freud takes many things for granted, such as the existence of an afterlife or the effects of subtle influences like aromatherapy, spiritual healing, etc. These things seem obvious to Sigmund, whereas to many people they are a matter of conjecture or even illusory. Sigmund Freud may not realize he has spiritual gifts because they come so naturally to him.
His deep comprehension and good powers of concentration give Sigmund Freud the ability to judge matters wisely and prudently. He is a keen observer and also can be a persuasive speaker. Sigmund likes to be in control, but needs appreciation and recognition for his efforts.
