Even though she is emotionally intense and can be somewhat of a pressure cooker at times (as described on the previous page), Anne Baxter is very grounded and stable at heart, as described in more detail below. Her essentially sensible, practical nature enables Anne Baxter to direct some of her powerful feelings and drives into productive channels.
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 Baxter's course is set, she pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway her from her purpose.
Anne Baxter 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 Anne Baxter 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, Baxter can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Anne Baxter also loves the beauty of the natural world and she probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, her needs are simple and she is easy to please. Anne Baxter has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless she is forced to do so. She is not very demanding emotionally, though she does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of her faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon Baxter for support. Though she hates upheaval and sudden changes, Anne Baxter usually maintains her poise and equanimity. Anne Baxter also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. She makes an excellent parent, especially if she follows her instincts more often than "the experts".
Anne has three major faults: one is her bullheaded obstinacy. The second is her unwillingness to deviate from her safe, predictable routine. And the third is Baxter's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Anne Baxter lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open her mind to new horizons.
Anne Baxter invests a tremendous amount of her creative energy into her relationships with others, particularly her marriage or other close partnerships. Anne feels that she needs others in order to be all that she can be, and she is disinclined to solitary activities and endeavors.
Working with people on a one-to-one basis to promote mutual understanding, harmony, and satisfaction is an area in which Anne Baxter can really excel. Counseling or negotiating are talents of hers.
Anne Baxter often feels that she is at cross purposes with herself, for her conscious intentions and desires conflict with her subconscious emotional needs and drives. She is torn in two different directions. Anne has difficulty satisfying both her need to be an individual and her need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Anne sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to her or what Anne really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
Anne Baxter aims high, dreams big, and has a tremendous sense of what she is capable of achieving. Overconfidence, grandiosity, lack of humility and/or extreme discontent in modest circumstances may be her faults. Generally, however, Baxter's great expectations and enterprising spirit lead to success. Business, especially when there is an element of risk and speculation involved, is ideally suited to Anne.
However she also has a more somber side, which keeps Baxter's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Anne Baxter tends to seesaw between her faith, vision and high aspirations, and her caution and realism (or fear!). She cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and she accepts the need for hard work. Her skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
Anne has to overcome considerable hardship in order to fulfill her personal destiny. However, she has the strength and stamina necessary to do so. Support and helpful guidance from her father or other significant men in her life may well be lacking. In fact, their disapproval of Anne and their harsh criticism are apt to be two of her greatest handicaps, and at times she may feel quite discouraged and alone. But true self-reliance and a solid sense of her own powers may well be the silver lining to that cloud in her life. Anne Baxter needs to learn to follow her own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what her critics or the authorities may say.
Although she takes herself and her responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of Anne Baxter that rebels against rules and restrictions and the need to contend with outside authority. Baxter can feel torn between conforming to the rules or fulfilling her obligations, and breaking free of them. Her wilder side will now be described.
She is an original! Anne Baxter radiates a sort of electrical excitement about the things she is interested in, and conveys this to others, but she also gets bored rather quickly. Anne does not mind being a bit unusual or breaking a few rules either.
While she is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Anne Baxter also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
Anne 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. Anne Baxter is also drawn to mysticism and she has deep spiritual aspirations and yearnings. Gentle and peace loving, Baxter 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.
Emotionally, it could be difficult for Anne Baxter to discern illusion from reality. She is impressionable and sympathetic toward others. However, Baxter tends to idealize others and could adopt a fantasy view of a wonderful marriage, causing disappointment later on.
Her emotions are in tune with her intentions and Anne Baxter goes about her business with complete oneness. Anne Baxter has a positive attitude towards life and a high spirit of enterprise. There could be a strong tie between Anne and her mother or her wife.
