Though Ekberg may seem breezy, independent and freedom loving (as mentioned in the previous chapter), she is in fact not completely happy without a partner. She enjoys being on the move and exploring new territory, but wants a traveling companion! Ekberg yearns for fulfilling, yet non-restricting relationships.
Harmony and balance are her keynotes. Anita Ekberg instinctively understands the need to accommodate other people's interests and desires, and she is always fair and willing to meet others half way. Tactful, diplomatic, and quite socially aware, Anita does all she can to avoid conflict and discord. Her spirit is one of cooperation and compromise, and she often achieves through charm and discretion what would have been impossible to achieve with a direct, forceful approach.
Getting along with and pleasing others may be too important to Ekberg since she can be too dependent on the approval and opinions of other to make her own decisions. Ekberg will rarely act without seeking the counsel and feedback of other people. She prefers sharing and doing things with others rather than on her own. Being alone feels very unnatural to Anita Ekberg, and she has a strong need for a partner and intimate one-on-one relationships.
Anita Ekberg invests a great deal of her energy in personal love relationships and she is very idealistic and romantic about marriage. Anita Ekberg seeks a partner who is her equal intellectually, and who is capable of a mental relationship as well as a physical and emotional one. She makes a thoughtful, considerate friend or lover, and she enjoys the traditional symbols of love - courtship, flowers, etc. Ekberg perceives relationships like an art that requires time, attention and creative effort. Anita Ekberg appreciates a partner who is subtle and polished, never coarse or blunt.
Fairness and equality, both in her personal relationships and in the world, are extremely important to her. If Anita Ekberg fights about anything, it is often about something she feels is unfair and unbalanced. Balance is very important to Anita. She believes in moderation in all things and avoids fanaticism and extremism at all costs.
Anita Ekberg also has a strong need for beautiful, harmonious surroundings and a natural sense of artistic style and grace, which is reflected in the way Ekberg dresses and furnishes her home and workspace. Everything must be aesthetically pleasing and appropriate. Working with people as a counselor, advisor, consultant, or negotiator, or in an artistic field such as design or photography would be fulfilling to her.
Ekberg is very attracted to world travel, foreign cultures and studies that expand her intellectual horizons and broaden her understanding of the world.
Anita Ekberg is philosophically inclined and concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting an overall picture of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy her mind much of the time.
Anita Ekberg is loving and well loved by others, and has a strong need for relationships that offer kindness, friendship and affection. Her artistic and creative powers are also well developed and Anita does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Ekberg, as are her personal appearance and attractiveness.
There is an ongoing, subtle conflict within Anita Ekberg 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 Anita 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 Anita Ekberg is denying or suppressing the messages from her subconscious or emotional self.
Ideally, Anita Ekberg will learn to accept and express these two different sides of herself. Should she fail to do so, Ekberg is likely to be drawn into many relationships with people who reflect her denied or repressed qualities and seem to make her life difficult.
