is as warm, friendly and good-natured as he is outgoing, talkative and sociable. Charming and attractive, he is inclined to take care of his appearance and can be known to spend a lot of money on clothes, preoccupied as he is with the effect that he has on others. Bright, cultivated and adaptable, he communicates with ease and eloquence, choosing his words carefully as much for the pleasure of playing with the language as in order to make sure that his presence doesn't go unnoticed. If at times he can seem abrupt, bossy and aloof, this is just a front to compensate for his lack of confidence and overwhelming shyness. Worse still, his emotions can play tricks on him making his moods unpredictable, and this is not without repercussions on the personal and professional areas of his life! This emotivity is actually a result of an inner conflict due to two rather incompatible aspects of his personality: a side that is masculine, active, dynamic, independent, domineering, hardworking, ambitious and headstrong (even more pronounced if he was born on the 1st, 10th, 19th or 28th, during the month of January, or if his Life Path
Number is 1) and another that is feminine in essence: passive, dependent, impressionable, emotional, intuitive but easily swayed (more pronounced if he was born on the 2nd, 11th, 20th, 29th, in February, or if his Life Path
Number is 2 or 11). As a child, his development and well-being depend heavily on his emotional environment, gentle encouragement and support will bring out the very best in his nature. Unpleasant teachers could be the cause of an unhappy educational experience, but luckily, Bastian
is into everything and usually good at whatever he puts his mind to. A vivacious and talented child, especially where languages are concerned, it would be wise to encourage him to learn at least one other language as early as possible. Keep an eye out for half-completed jigsaw puzzles and abandoned toys and books, as his insatiable curiosity sweeps him from one activity to the next, rarely ever finishing anything at all. He is of exemplary moral character, so much so that acquiring a touch of arrogance and bravado could even do wonders for his confidence!
