William Randolph Hearst
The way William Randolph Hearst appears or comes across to others is very congruent with his true nature; what he sees is what you get. The description below corroborates what you read about William in the previous chapter. If at all possible, Hearst should avoid living in large cities, as he needs natural surroundings.
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 Hearst's course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
William Randolph Hearst 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 William Randolph Hearst 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, Hearst can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. William Randolph Hearst 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. William Randolph Hearst 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 Hearst for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, William Randolph Hearst usually maintains his poise and equanimity. William Randolph Hearst 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".
William 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 Hearst's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, William Randolph Hearst lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to new horizons.
William Randolph Hearst tends to get involved in the helping professions or in activities where his efforts are hidden, behind the scenes, unacknowledged or unknown to the public. Hearst may find it exceedingly uncomfortable to assert himself or get up in front of an audience.
Inwardly he is zealous and fanatical, though he may hide his personal desires and intentions, as well as the intensity of his feelings. He is driven by a deep inner sense of destiny and mission and an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition. William is infatuated with power, incredibly willful and stubbornly fixated on achieving greatness or being someone Special. William Randolph Hearst tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma, and he often seeks to emulate them. William has potential for tremendous good or tremendous evil.
William Randolph Hearst has a pleasant and dreamy disposition with considerable romantic imagination. William has a strong longing for love, but he does not see others very clearly and may experience many disappointments in his emotional relationships.
