Basil are the spirit of the ancient cultures, and their soul is from elsewhere, so what it that defines them as a character is, they may wonder. Well, you seek knowledge and you wish for a revelation, something that’ll help you make sense out of this world you’re forced to live in. You’re thirsty for knowledge, and there is no end to your curiosity, but this all comes with the analytical mind, the mind that is constantly looking for answers, and cannot be satisfied with simplified explanations. Basil wish to explore the borders of their capabilities, and they do not stop in that quest. In your mind, science is the only thing that matters, and then you occupy yourself with philosophy and mysticism to explain something that science cannot explain. In this case, your career will probably be either investigating or contemplating. Your perfect job is researcher, as there, in that place, your questions are being answered, but you can also find your peace of mind if you decide on being the priest or even a lawyer.

Even though it may seem unusual at this time, Basil can also be attracted to philosophy, which is extremely likely to happen given they look for answers, and they need material to pour themselves over, in order to achieve their peace of mind. Most of the things have already played out in your mind, and no matter how strange that may sound, your inner peace is also defined by the time you think for yourself. You often tend to wander off, lose yourself in the sea, and there, far away from the world, you feel good. Sometimes, Basil will find themselves disappointed in the people, as they seem to be illiterate, at least when it comes to the certain topics. You avoid the argument, but you cannot help but wonder if that’s the path you wish to take or merely the path they chose for you. You accept the standards, like everyone else, but seek for something to explain the point of everything, as you cannot allow yourself to fall into the abyss. You tend to be critical of others, as you expect them to do more with their life, to share their portion of knowledge in order for the system to function. Sometimes, Basil get lucky, but most of the times, it all is messed up, in their head, and they get cynical, judging their every move, questioning their purpose. You tend to be distant towards the others, lost in your imagination, and it can get really bad given all of us need to be in touch with the rest of the world.

Basil should probably meditate or do something else which will take their mind of the things like this, and in case that too isn’t working, they must exercise, include music and soft vibrations to balance out. If they fail to do so, consequences can take them to the place of despair, and they can be lost for a long period of time.
