Who is he?
Physically strong and masculine, Nikias is rather magnetic and emanates self-confidence. But one should never judge a book by its cover, and while it is true that Nikias is dynamic, resourceful, resolute and can even appear gruff or abrupt; he is a big softie, first and foremost. The powerful vibrations of the 1 and the 8 are expressed through his tendency to be authoritarian and bossy, and a little vain. However, Nikias also cares deeply about others. His sensitivity can be overwhelming and his emotions intense, making him just as capable of great generosity as fierce rage or even violence. He wants to be liked and admired, but never really forgets the ascendancy that he has over others. Difficulty stimulates him and he willingly fights, objects and seeks confrontation. He is extremely argumentative, and although he is essentially individualistic, he often needs other people's help to succeed. If he participates in group or associative activities (political, sport-related or other), he will want to be the leader! He has an innovative mind and thinks that he can change the world. But if Nikias is an active, pragmatic man who is made for concrete achievement, then he is also a day-dreamer and an idealist who can be naïve and a little disorganized. He appreciates material wealth and the finer things in life, so he is far from indifferent to the financial sphere. As a child, he is lively, bright and inventive. Proud and touchy, he has trouble accepting a subordinate role, and if he gets stuck with the part he could become rebellious, difficult and argumentative. He could just as easily be fascinated by poetry and art, which nourish his great sensitivity; as by sport or mechanics.
What does he like?
He likes to be noticed and admired, to be the centre of attention and to be in charge; such are the desires of this rather self-important individual. He is sensitive to beauty, elegance and distinction. When it comes to love, he is passionate, uncompromising, jealous and a little selfish; however he is nevertheless an attentive lover and his partner's pleasure is high on his list of priorities, especially when their desires are compatible... A sensual man who is more sentimental than he appears to be, Nikias isn't always able to resist temptation, despite his best efforts...
What does he do?
He has quite a few different choices: occupations requiring imagination or sensitivity (theatre, art), in connection with travel, the hotel and catering industry, cuisine, mechanics, technology, sport, metallurgy; or any occupation that is physically demanding as well as those that confer them with a certain amount of power or autonomy, such as politics or one of the liberal professions. Otherwise they could find satisfaction through a career in connection with finance (management, banking, accounting...).
