Although Amy Winehouse approaches life instinctively and intuitively (as described on the previous page), she also has a very analytical, rational, unemotional side, as discussed below. Her conflicting urges may vacillate between living passionately and dangerously, and being conservative and playing it safe.
At heart Amy Winehouse is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Amy Winehouse has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Winehouse can be relied upon to be cautious, efficient, and thorough in her work and she takes pride in a job well done. What she may lack in self-confidence Amy Winehouse often makes up for in skills - fostering expertise, technical knowledge and competence in a specialized area. She is adept at using her hands to create or fix things, and meticulous attention to detail and careful craftsmanship are her forte. Some would say she is a little too meticulous, for Winehouse can be extremely critical and petty if everything is not done exactly as she thinks it should be, and she worries about things that other people consider trivial and unimportant. Amy Winehouse likes to organize, categorize and arrange everything into a logical system and is often distinctly uncomfortable when something does not fit into a neat category. Disorganization vexes Winehouse. She probably wishes that she were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Winehouse can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in her environment or within herself, Winehouse tends to focus on the flaws, with a desire to improve, refine, and perfect. She is strictly factual, truthful, and scrupulously honest in her self-assessment and often does not give herself enough praise or credit.
She is also highly discriminating and may be especially particular about her diet, hygiene, and health habits. Amy has high aesthetic standards and refined sensitivities, and is bothered by environmental elements (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that others overlook. Her tastes are simple and understated, yet refined. She is truly offended by coarseness, bluntness and vulgarity. Winehouse can sometimes be difficult to live with because of her fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though Amy Winehouse seems rather cool and self-contained, she is very helpful by nature and enjoys serving others. She is content to play a supporting role rather than the lead. She is quietly devoted to the ones she cares for.
She is cautious, realistic and practical in her approach to life and disinclined to gamble. Amy Winehouse analyzes before she acts. She is sometimes too serious. If Winehouse allowed herself to play and make mistakes, it would be highly beneficial to her health!
Her career, reputation and public image are very important to Winehouse. Amy Winehouse has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. She is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Amy Winehouse may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
There is an ongoing, subtle conflict within Amy Winehouse between her conscious attitudes and aspirations and her deeper emotional and subconscious beliefs, needs and feelings. This creates considerable inner stress and sometimes paralyzing indecision, mostly due to the fact that Amy may be trying to follow a path that is at odds with her subconscious desires. Chronic tightness or tension in her body may well be a signal that Amy Winehouse is denying or suppressing the messages from her subconscious or emotional self.
Ideally, Amy Winehouse will learn to accept and express these two different sides of herself. Should she fail to do so, Winehouse is likely to be drawn into many relationships with people who reflect her denied or repressed qualities and seem to make her life difficult. (Also read chapter 4 in order to get a better picture of the duality described here.)
Amy is extremely sensitive and imaginative, and she can get lost in her dreams, fantasies and visions. She is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, as well as to the world of color, beauty, and emotion. Amy Winehouse is also drawn to mysticism and she has deep spiritual aspirations and yearnings. Gentle and peace loving, Winehouse may lack the will and competitive spirit needed to make her way in the world. She is often impractical and may seek to avoid or escape the harsh realities of life.
Winehouse has an intrinsic creative and artistic ability and an unusual sense of form. Amy Winehouse also has a deep need for relationships that offer affection and can be quite intense when by inner compulsion she feels drawn to someone. Her relationships tend to be peculiar in some way.
Her vitality is very strong and she is likely to be a workaholic. If Amy Winehouse is not careful, she may work so hard that she becomes exhausted, leaving herself open to physical breakdown. Amy Winehouse also has a strong drive to win and to dominate others.
