The Altruist is the second path of the Ennealogy archetypes. It was given its name because of its unselfish nature and its devotion to meeting the needs of others. Sharing many characteristics with the Moon, The Altruist is imaginative, sensitive, moody and changeable. The Altruist is one of the most helpful of the nine paths because they genuinely desire to help others the same way a mother sincerely yearns to help her children. They are others-oriented, and get a strong sense of worthiness from helping and serving. The Altruist desires love, companionship, and relationships but can suffer from people-pleasing and unexpressed resentment towards those who don't express appreciation for their devotion and sacrifice.
