growth and expansion
His strength lies in his ability to see the whole, rather than only the parts which compose it. T.S. Eliot has a deep need to explore the world and to develop his own philosophy of life and sense of personal meaning. T. S. Eliot vacillates between being open-minded and tolerant of differing views, and being dogmatic or overly zealous about his own viewpoint.
Wealth, material well-being, and prosperity are very important to T. S. Eliot, and he would never choose a profession that did not offer him great promise and opportunity for growth (financial and otherwise).
Eliot is very generous and sometimes careless with money; he does not want to hold on to it, he wants to enjoy it and use it to enrich his life. Whatever T. S. Eliot does with his money, he does in a big way - making it, spending it, or blowing it! Thomas may accumulate elegant, high quality things (art, jewelry, etc).
He is a highly idealistic dreamer who is open to anything. T. S. Eliot can be extremely impractical and gullible, and will believe anything is possible no matter how "far out" or impossible. Eliot has a tendency for escapism, forever looking for Shangri-La. ("Somewhere Over the Rainbow" could be a favorite theme song of his). Thomas needs to balance his dreamy idealism with temperance and practicality in order to succeed in life. T. S. Eliot is also a very generous, giving soul and sometimes finds it difficult to limit his charitable impulses.
His fortunes are apt to fluctuate wildly throughout his life. Eliot can make and lose fortunes rather easily, due to his risk-taking, speculating and rather adventurous entrepreneurial endeavors. No matter how modest or "normal" his appearance, T. S. Eliot is actually inordinately ambitious and lucky. He needs a large international arena in order to fulfill his ambitions and apply his skills. World travel and foreign exchange feature prominently in this arena.
