If you are serious about becoming a better person, the first step is to become aware of the weaknesses which may be holding you back and preventing your evolution. These might include your need for security, your tendency to escape into fantasy, your hunger for approval, your longing for the past, your fear of the future, and your investment systems.
You sometimes sense a conflict between your desire for social and professional success and your need for a stable, secure domestic life. You are deeply committed to both ideas and do not always succeed in reconciling their schedules and demands on you. Sometimes it feels as though you will never be able to find a balance. However, no job promotion will really satisfy you if you have neglected your most intimate needs and desires. Although it sometimes seems easier to you to climb the rungs of the career ladder out there in the real world, if you merely sacrifice your domestic life, you are only trying to fool yourself. You should accept the fact that your domestic life is the true basis and foundation of your development. All your career endeavors and success will be even more rewarding if they are supported by a safe, warm personal life.
Barton Cowperthwaite has a variety of talents, but it can be difficult for him to concentrate on a single focus. He is ruled by his nervousness and suggestibility, and sometimes he struggles to use his adaptive abilities to their fullest potential and take the time to formulate solutions to his problems. To be truly effective, Barton needs to learn to control his jittery mind; otherwise, he will drain his nervous system of energy. If Barton experiences respiratory problems, like asthma (due to his nerves), it will be a sign that the need to change is urgent.
Barton Cowperthwaite’s energy is vast and very productive. He knows how to persevere and meet challenges, delays, and obstacles with determination and obstinacy, without altering his goals. He is fairly reluctant to change course as a result of outside intervention, preferring to bulldoze his way past any obstacles, slowly but steadily, rather than go around them. Sometimes his will is so powerful that he refuses to make any compromises or concessions, which may be a source of conflict with others. He might want to work on sharing his power or authority, which would allow him to accomplish more.
Barton Cowperthwaite detests contradiction. Although he has vast reserves of mental and intellectual concentration, he sometimes tends to be dogmatic or absolutist. His rigid mindset denotes a certain adaptive difficulty.
Barton Cowperthwaite has fairly single-minded and obstinate desires. He displays a remarkable persistence in the pursuit of his commitments, despite any obstacles he may encounter. He is highly charged with sensuality and sexuality, and they have a great deal of influence on his behavior. His expression in this area is sometimes fraught with problems because he has a tendency to try too hard to control his lustful urges. However, an emotional crisis intervening at around age 40 may bring about a total redefinition of his relationship to his sexuality.
As a result of your great ambitions, Barton Cowperthwaite is fairly organized. He is able to work long and hard to achieve his goals and elaborates fairly rigid strategies to protect himself against any foreseeable obstacles. He is so absorbed in his business that he does not always realize that he tends to be somewhat peremptory with the people around him and that he might do well to soften his tone and be more tactful at times. His friendships seem stifling and superfluous to him, and he is sometimes tormented by inner conflict when he is forced to submit to another’s will. To succeed, work to be less dogmatic. Trust in yourself and other people and flexibility.
