Receptive and tractable, Menelaus
is an unusual man with a multifaceted personality. He is highly permeable to his affective atmosphere and this results in fluctuations in his mood depending on who is he is with and the influence they have on him, be it intentional or unintentional... His personal relationships are a source of vitality for him and serve as a springboard to success in his undertakings. On the other hand, if he senses an inhospitable atmosphere he will close up like a clam and be at quite a loss of what to say or do. Menelaus
is actually hypersensitive and extremely nervous but he does a wonderful job of appearing calm and unflustered. He tends to become withdrawn and introverted if life disappoints him, however he could also find solace through the intermediary of his rich imagination and day-dreams which allow him to take refuge from reality when the going gets rough. Otherwise long-distance travel in real life could provide the escape that is necessary to his equilibrium... He is socially adept and proves himself to be kind-hearted, tolerant and open-minded with regards to those he meets. However, he is less patient with his close friends and loved ones, for whom he has higher standards in keeping with the principles that he holds the dearest. His simple nature and his big heart make him a very likeable character who is endowed with a real sense of solidarity - his door is always open for his friends to whom he shows warmth and generosity. Extroverted, enthusiastic, lively and resourceful at times; lost in thought, introverted and unhurried at others, Menelaus
's cyclothymic behaviour could be disconcerting to observe, but it is important that he fully experiences both of these facets of his personality. As a child, Menelaus
is sometimes a scatterbrain, fickle and dissipated (especially if he was born on a 5th, 14th, 23th, in May, or if his Life Path
Number is 5). But he is also a day-dreamer and could remain quite calm and serene, with security as a priority (especially if he was born in April or September, or if his Life Path
Number is 4 or 9). It would be a very good idea to encourage this highly sensitive child to take up a hobby that he enjoys and can develop.
