drive and ambition
Holden is aspiring, enterprising and forever following a bright and distant star, planning some new venture or investigating new potential. She is definitely "upwardly mobile" in either a material or spiritual sense. Amanda Holden aims high and is not content with a mere quiet, secure existence. Amanda likes to stretch her limits, see how far she can go and take risks. She is a positive thinker, expects success for herself, and is philosophical about failures. Holden is flexible and she bounces back from disappointments rather quickly, usually with another hopeful new idea she wants to try. Her enthusiasm and confidence are contagious and enable Amanda Holden to enlist the aid and support she needs for her projects. However, Amanda Holden sometimes promises more than she can actually achieve, because she is overly optimistic or pays insufficient attention to the practicalities involved.
She also tends to get distracted and to have too many things going on at once. Although it is very difficult for her, there are times when Amanda Holden simply must cultivate commitment, perseverance and persistence in order to make her dreams and goals reality. Too often Amanda Holden falls short of what she could attain because she is unwilling to persist through the difficult or less exciting times.
Amanda Holden also enjoys competition and usually does not take it too seriously. Sports and entrepreneurial endeavors are good ways to channel Amanda's energy.
Holden is attracted to feisty, dynamic, strong-willed people, and she seems to need a healthy dose of fireworks in her personal relationships. Amanda Holden can be very combative, or get involved with people who are. Ideally Amanda will join forces with people who are energetic and ambitious, but not too domineering or aggressive.
Holden frequently meets a tremendous amount of resistance whenever she wants to assert herself in a decisive way or do something just for herself. This resistance stems from within (in the form of self-doubt, fear, or a heavy sense of responsibility toward others), as well as from practical and circumstantial limitations. Especially when initiating a project or acting independently, Amanda Holden may tell herself that she is not really prepared, or that she is not good enough (yet), and she puts a lot of pressure on herself. Despite the obstacles, setbacks or lack of support she encounters, Amanda Holden can accomplish a great deal with patience and perseverance. However, she is apt to aim too low and not realize how much she is truly capable of.
Amanda Holden should try to recognize that she does not have to justify her existence or prove her worth through her accomplishments.
Although she is patient and steady when pursuing an objective, when Amanda Holden finally loses patience she loses it completely! In addition to having great tenacity and perseverance, Amanda has a daring and rebellious side as well:
She enjoys risky, exciting activities and cannot tolerate too much routine, tedium or inactivity. Unless other factors in her chart suggest staying power and the ability to follow through, Amanda Holden may be the person who initiates a new venture but cannot happily participate in the ongoing, sustained effort it requires. "Independent" is Holden's middle name! Amanda Holden needs to be a totally free agent, to run her own show. Amanda likes to introduce new concepts to people, and then move on.
Language, words, communication, networking, clarity of speech or writing, being a messenger or go-between - these are key features in her career, as well as how Amanda Holden goes about achieving her goals and ambitions. "Work smarter, not harder" is Holden's motto.
She may have to overcome something in her background or personal past in order to achieve her long-range goals and ambitions. Sometimes Amanda Holden may feel pulled in two different directions - what others expect of her or what she needs to do in order to progress versus what her old conditioning or her emotional predisposition would have her do. Overcoming the pull of the past is the key.
The road to success, professional advancement and fulfillment of her long-range goals is likely to be easier and smoother for Amanda Holden than for many. This is partly due to her getting a great deal of financial and/or emotional support. Someone early in her life probably really believed in Amanda and had high expectations for her. Amanda Holden contributes to her own success by setting high goals and enlisting the aid of friends and others to achieve these goals. A lack of selfishness or pettiness is a great boon to her. Whatever Amanda Holden does is likely to be expansive and eventually quite prosperous.
