Who is he?
Bertoldo is an endearing character which is undoubtedly due to his shy, gentle and sensitive nature, but especially because he has a big, soft heart. He is nonetheless difficult to work out thanks to the influences of the karmic 1 and 11/2. These two schemas are effectively antagonistic. The former brings him to affirm himself, to shine and influence people, and achieve autonomy; while the latter engenders dependence upon others, submission and cooperation... He is therefore likely to have some difficulty balancing these tendencies and affirming his personality. While he is generally a timid sort, he is also capable of going through phases where he susceptible to anger or aggression if his strong emotions get the better of him, or as a result of his hypersensitivity. In fact, Bertoldo can sometimes be a little vain - he needs to shine, be admired and influence others; ideally he would like to be in charge, however this isn't always possible, and if it is, he could be quite awkward or pretentious. It is nonetheless true that if he lives at the high level of the vibrations of his master number 11, he will think big and be full of ideas and plans that are more or less difficult to accomplish, which will confer him a considerable ascendency over others. If life and circumstances prevent this, he will instead seek a certain security; in both the material and emotional areas of his life, more dependent on his environment than he would like to be. Three letters with a value of 3 in a first name composed of six letters endow him with a shrewd, analytical and inquisitive mind, intelligent and reasonable, admittedly sometimes critical but certainly full of good humour. Furthermore, he is highly strung, impatient, over-emotional and cyclothymic... A motivated type, he chases his dreams with courage, tenacity and dogged determination. He is sensitive and his ego is rather well developed, so he tends to accord too much importance to his image, which in turn often affects his decision making process. As a child, growing up isn't always easy, and it is possible that he experiences problems with one of his parents (karmic 1 and 2) which could be distressing for this sensitive soul. He should definitely cultivate his natural gift for languages. It is also important to encourage him to be autonomous and active because left to his own devices, he tends to be quite lazy. Lastly, since he is rather timid and impressionable, his imagination is inclined to play tricks on him, making him prone to nightmares and afraid of the dark... this is a little boy who will ask for much reassurance.
