Reduce the complexity of life by eliminating the needless wants of life, and the labors of life reduce themselves. -Edwin Way Teale

The Individual

I was not always into astrology, but after a number of "coincidences", I began to question and pay more attention to the field. I now give astrology much credit for it's ability to describe personality traits and common characteristics of people according to their sign (although I am less inclined to follow advice or predictions, or subscribe to other beliefs associated with the field). I am a classic Piscean. Most astrologists are able to describe my personality as if they know me personally. So whenever people seek to understand me, I suggest they read a book on astrology, since most of what you read will apply to me. I offer the following excerpt below from, which gives a pretty accurate general description of me. For more specific information about me, please follow "The Individual" link on the banner at the top of this page.

For those who know me, trust me, I didn't write this myself. For those who don't know me... now you do.

Pisces are... is a difficult sentence to finish. There are so many kinds of Pisces. Strange statement? Yes, because Pisceans are the most malleable of the twelve signs. They possess a gentle, patient nature, but one that is in want of molding. They can be impressed by and completely absorbed into their environment. They are in need of a container which will shape them, guide them. Without this guiding form, this rudder, they tend to drift.

Pisces adapts to their surroundings, good or bad. They are generous, friendly, good-natured people with a true sense of kindness and compassion. They are sensitive to everything around them including the feelings of others. They are popular folk because of their easygoing and likable manner, which tends to mirror people they are with. They have an uncanny sense of perceiving what a person is in need of, and delivering it. They are not initiators, but rather allow circumstances and events to motivate them, and then they respond. In this aspect, they tend to focus on other peoples problems rather than their own.

Pisceans are not practical people. They are too ephemeral for normal day-to-day living in the 9-5 "practical" world. They are more sensitive and instinctual rather than intellectual or mechanical. They lack decisiveness and are easily diverted from their purposes. They are apt to live a shiftless sort of life, searching for some career or meaning in which to pour themselves. They discourage easily, and can become despondent, feel unappreciated and move on to something or someone else.

When, however, they do find the right container, they are capable of some incredible deeds. They will become completely absorbed in a chosen path, to the exclusion of everything else. The 'absent minded professor' is a classic Pisces character, such as Albert Einstein. They don't fare well in a controlled or fixed environment and generally rebel against convention. But, unlike the Aquarian, who will fight the establishment, Pisces wages only a personal battle.

Pisceans do best in an environment where they can exercise their imaginations and intuitive nature. They are gifted artistically. They are versatile and tend to understand things by absorption rather than logic. They are receptive to new ideas and circumstances. They possess wonderful creativity, which is demonstrated in music, literature, drama and art. They have an acute instinct for, and love of beauty in nature as well as the arts. They appreciate luxury and pleasure, and are ripe for new sensations. When they travel, they prefer remote, exotic places.

Pisceans rarely have an ego problem, and in their personal relationships and friendships tend to be very giving. In matters of the heart, they seek a soul mate rather than a bedmate. That is not to say they will not hop from bed to bed in search of this soul mate. Pisces is a spirit on a quest for Utopia, and Utopia does not exist on this earth. Pisces is easily misled because they want to believe. No matter how often they are led astray by vacant promises, they keep the faith and go on looking for their personal ideal. They are loyal, home loving, kind and generous, but their dreamy and impractical natures are a source of distress to those close to them.

Pisces sense of others is an ability that makes them effective in civil service and the legal arena. Many in law enforcement and the judicial system are Pisceans. Their intuitive and spiritual qualities can lead them into careers in religion or to service as mediums and mystics. Still others are creative cooks and chefs. Because of their versatility and plasticity, they often follow several vocations during their lifetime.

The Philosophy

The Philosophy is the result of my vision to offer others an opportunity to appreciate the true significance of Xianté. A man can only be what he believes himself to be, and a man's beliefs are the foundation of his being. In developing The Philosophy, it is important to note, I do not seek converts to a religion, or followers of a cult. Rather, I seek to impart my wisdom and experience, to induce enlightenment though my words and my ideals.
