Secretive and inclined to brooding silences, it is difficult for others to really know his inner core, for Tom DeLay trusts and opens himself to very few. Allowing himself to be vulnerable and to relinquish control in relationships is not easy for DeLay.
Tom has intense, passionate loves and hates and is a jealously loyal and protective friend - or a fearsome foe. Tom DeLay has a nasty habit of holding on to past hurts, resentments, and guilt - and to keep such feelings to himself. It is important for Tom DeLay to learn to forgive and let go, as well as to express his feelings openly and directly, rather than hiding or repressing them.
He is not content with superficial appearances and is always probing beneath the surface of things for hidden motives. Tom DeLay has a great deal of emotional depth.
Tom DeLay has a soft exterior and tends to relate very personally and sympathetically to other people. However, Tom sometimes lets his emotions overpower his reasoning and logic, and consequently he is sometimes biased in his opinions. Tom DeLay is impressionable and rather gentle, or at least that is the way he appears. His feelings are on the surface and Tom cannot hide his emotions.
He is assertive and confronts difficulties in a direct, no-nonsense sort of way. Tom DeLay cannot tolerate self-pity or passivity, and he can be rather brusque with others' emotional problems. "Stop crying and do something about it" might be DeLay's motto.
Although he is impetuous and easily provoked (as mentioned above), Tom DeLay also has a good-natured, live-and-let-live attitude and a sense of humor, which balances that. While hotheaded at times, he is usually a good sport.
He is tolerant and forgiving, always ready to overlook mistakes and give others a second chance. Tom DeLay expects the best from people and draws it out of them, and he enjoys making others comfortable and happy. Because of his emotional generosity, his life is rich with friends, and often financial blessings as well.
Although DeLay gets hot under the collar rather easily (as mentioned above), he also has a certain degree of emotional self-control and composure which enables Tom DeLay to rein in some of his more aggressive tendencies. This side of his is described below.
There is another side to Tom DeLay as well, a rather introverted, self-contained, even pessimistic side which tempers his good cheer and generosity, as discussed below.
Tom DeLay has an inner poise and balance that enables him to act in a cool, efficient manner during emotional traumas and stress. He keeps perspective and objectivity about highly charged emotional issues - sometimes to the chagrin of others who might wish that DeLay would react more intensely. Tom is quietly supportive and faithful to his friends and loved ones.
Tom has the ability to speak with his heart and soul and therefore to convince people. He is adaptable in both his thinking and speaking, but also changeable. In his work Tom DeLay can be a fanatic, at times inconsiderate and expects too much of others.
His will tends to be a bit weak and he seems to lack courage. Somewhat slow to take action, Tom DeLay thinks that he will fail because of his inadequacies as a person. He keeps his feelings to himself and should guard against depression and pessimism.
Tremendously softhearted and sympathetic, Tom DeLay gives very selflessly and devotedly to those he loves and often allows others to become overly dependent upon him. More compassionate than passionate, Tom DeLay may become romantically involved with someone because they need love and he wants to help them, rather than out of mutual pleasure or attraction.
He is drawn to sensitive, imaginative, gentle souls - poets, musicians, dreamers - or to someone Tom feels he can have deep spiritual relationships with. Tom DeLay idealizes love and has a very beautiful, romantic vision of what love relationships can be.
A warm, loving, and comfortable home is very important to Tom DeLay and he invests a lot of his energy into beautifying, decorating, and creating a lovely home. Also, Tom shares his affection with the people in his family very generously and having close family relationships is a major priority for him. Being at home makes DeLay happy.
It is absolutely essential for Tom DeLay not to deceive himself when it comes to love relationships, romance, or the true nature of other people. Tom tends to be in love with love, and can be incredibly naive and easily seduced. Confusion, disappointments, and regrettable mistakes in both emotional and financial matters may result. On the other hand, it is also possible that Tom DeLay will use his attractiveness or charm to deceive others. Clarity, directness, honesty, and realism regarding romantic relationships and people in general, need to be developed.
He is prone to get involved in highly intense, even obsessive relationships - "fatal attractions", so to speak. At its darkest, this urge for intensity in the personal arena may compel Tom DeLay to choose friends or mates who are rather dangerous or dishonorable characters with a penchant for manipulating and inflicting pain on their "loved ones". On the other hand, DeLay may be tempted to use his own sexuality or charm to play the same sort of game, to use love or friendship as a bargaining chip or to gain power over others. Even if his intentions are basically good, Tom DeLay will find that his closest relationships are rather tumultuous affairs in which some rather unlovely aspects of his (such as jealousy and the desire to dominate or to be a victim) keep showing their faces. These are qualities that need to be understood and ultimately outgrown.
He is likely to have very strange experiences in love relationships. Tom DeLay is inclined to fantasize a lot about love and seems to admire the unattainable. Strongly attracted to the spiritual dimensions of life, he may pursue the study of mystical and occult subjects.
