He is very self-conscious and has a great need for ego-affirmation and praise. Expressing himself freely and openly is not easy for Valo. Ville Valo tends to work hard at playing and "having fun", rather than being light-hearted and spontaneous. Developing self-love and self-acceptance regardless of his "performance" is an important task for Ville.

Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Ville Valo instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that he is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for him. The direction Ville Valo needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
He is capable of withstanding outside influences and remaining constant and steady on his path, but when under stress Ville Valo becomes downright obstinate and implacable, resisting any change no matter how necessary or desirable the change may be. Tenaciously trying to preserve the status quo and hold on to what he has, he is apt to ignore the subtle signals he receives about needing to do something differently, which often leads to a crisis.
Ville Valo needs to learn the limits of his ability to control life, and to accept and even embrace change and loss of the familiar, in order to allow for new life and growth. "Letting go" is a major life lesson for him. Valo also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward his appetites and desires, as Ville Valo tends to overindulge and/or deny himself excessively.
It is in any involvements he has with teams, clubs, organizations, networks, and the like that Ville Valo is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above need to be channeled into some sort of group effort or experience, or have some impact on society at large.
The following are specific activities that will support Ville Valo in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Valo, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Ville Valo should be willing to become more of a free thinker, to experiment and change, to loosen his ties to tradition and the known and to allow for new developments. He needs to practice getting involved in an area involving new techniques, rapid changes and innovation. Ville can be part of the avant-garde promoting such changes - be it in science, music or social relationships. Ville Valo has to be willing to be different and perhaps to be considered eccentric or odd.
Ville Valo has a strong desire to acquire a leading position in his community. Although he is very capable of assuming leadership, Ville also has a tendency to impose his will upon others. But in spite of that, he is likely to be successful.
