Annette Bening's fundamental needs, values, and orientation towards life are symbolized by the four astrological elements. Each person has their own unique balance of these four basic energies: fire (warmth, inspiration, enthusiasm), earth (practicality, realism, material interests), air (social and intellectual qualities), and water (emotional needs and feelings).
Bening's "elemental make-up" is described below. Remember that most people are "unbalanced" or lopsided, and if Annette is lacking or deficient in a certain element (or elements), it simply means that she needs to consciously develop that particular aspect in order to appreciate and/or work harder in that dimension of life.
Sometimes we overestimate the element that we are least endowed with, sensing it as a lack within ourselves, but more often we neglect or ignore it. The qualities described below will be reiterated and explained in more detail in the following pages.
Annette Bening has a great capacity to relate to, appreciate and understand different people and points of view, and she tends to be quite liberal in her attitudes. She is primarily a thinking person who requires much intellectual and social stimulation, conversation and interaction. Annette Bening comprehends abstract reasoning and concepts very quickly and she likes ideas, language and culture. Bening cannot imagine being happy in a world without books, films or interesting relationships.
There is an androgynous quality to Annette, and she relates equally well to men and women, having both male and female characteristics in nearly equal measure within herself. Annette Bening tends to see someone as a person first, rather than as a woman or a man.
Friendship is very important to her sense of well-being. Annette Bening thrives on camaraderie, teamwork, social endeavor and sharing. However, she is also quite objective about them and there is often an impersonal touch to her relationships with others.
Her mind is Bening's real gift: thinking clearly, logically and creatively, planning and organizing efficiently, and communicating intelligently. However, Annette Bening tends to "live in her head" - reading about, talking about, and observing life without becoming completely immersed in it. Annette should avoid becoming a dabbler. She also needs to foster constancy, stability, and depth.
Fortunately, as you will read in the next chapter, Annette Bening has a down-to-earth attitude towards life that prevents her from becoming lost in her lofty ideas, concepts or ideals. Annette Bening has a healthy dose of practicality.
