The Community Leader
Your God Qualities
Atlas is the protector of humankind. He is often perceived as carrying the world on his shoulders.
Your Personality at its Best
As an Atlas, you have a strong sense of civic leadership and are a pillar of your community. Usually intelligent and forthright, you are a good family man, a hard worker, and a responsible citizen. You strive for success and financial independence and like to better yourself intellectually and professionally. You desire to feel loved, and prefer to live a conventional life with a wife at home, a family, and a stable job. You enjoy working with your hands and your mind, on computers or anything mechanical. A natural coach and teacher, you can also be an accountant or run the local grocery store. In fact, your versatility in career choice is exceeded by none. Your relationships with others are usually quite satisfactory, as long as you are held in respect.
Early Childhood Conditioning
You were never taught as a child to trust your feelings and, since you are more sensitive than you give yourself credit for being, you tend to internalize your day to day stresses. You may still blame your early upbringing, including your parents, for your difficulty in expressing what you feel.
How Your Personality May Undermine Your Health
You phyiscal problems are usually caused by the ineffectual way you handle stress. While you feel deeply, you tend to repress your feelings because of your low self-esteem or fear of social reprisals. You often hide your sensitivity from yourself until you are in danger of losing your own identity. You probably had a hero as a youngster and, as an adult, have had to live up to your heroic ideals or suffer feelings of inadequacy, worry, or guilt. You also tend to overwork yourself. When combined, these numerous stresses can alter the alkaline/acid ratio in your blood chemistry, making your digestion sensitive. Genetically, you may have pancreatic dysfunction in your family history and, if you become overweight, you must be careful to monitor your blood-sugar levels and watch your diet.

Meeting Your Creative Wellness Challenge
You need to learn self-introspection and self-acceptance, and then apply your sense of responsibilty and concern for others to yourself. You need not hold the whole world on your shoulders. To make the most of your Atlas personality, you can
- become a coach or “big brother”
- pay attention to your physical needs, exercising regularly and choosing the right foods in your diet
- make peace with your inner self and turn yourself over to a higher power, freeing yourself of unnecessary self-imposed “duty consciousness”
- enjoy practical entertainment and home activities, like camping, softball, gourmet cooking, working in the yard, and around the house
- involve yourself in hobbies that reward you with the love you deserve, such as taking a long-awaited vacation or learning to dance with your partner
As you meet your goals and lighten your load, you will have the opportunity to share your true nature as the community father.
I acknowledge that in the past
I have disregarded my emotional
and physical needs for balance.
Realizing these inadequacies,
I therefore pledge to transform my habits.
I affirm to honor my true nature
and become a more integrated person —
mind, body, and spirit as one,
bringing me self-love and self-esteem,
and the ability to share my whole self with others.
