She is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of her greatest assets. Once MacDowell's course is set, she pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway her from her purpose.
Andie MacDowell has a very practical nature; she wants to see concrete, tangible results for her efforts, and she is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of her "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for she has a great love of the physical world and she wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Andie MacDowell will work long and persistently, she also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and she wants to enjoy what she has worked for. In fact, MacDowell can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Andie MacDowell also loves the beauty of the natural world and she probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.

Andie has three major faults: one is her bullheaded obstinacy. The second is her unwillingness to deviate from her safe, predictable routine.
