The combination of her direct, forthright manner described in the previous chapter, and her innate sense of diplomacy and fairness (described below) makes Annie Besant a natural manager, consultant or lawyer. Besant can see all points of view and then adopt a leadership role to resolve any differences. Her personal relationships, while enormously important to her, must allow for a lot of personal freedom and self-expression. At times she may find herself torn between doing what she wants to do - no holds barred - and accommodating other people. Both impulses are very strong in Annie.
Harmony and balance are her keynotes. Annie Besant 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, Annie 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 Besant since she can be too dependent on the approval and opinions of other to make her own decisions. Besant 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 Annie Besant, and she has a strong need for a partner and intimate one-on-one relationships.
Annie Besant invests a great deal of her energy in personal love relationships and she is very idealistic and romantic about marriage. Annie Besant 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. Besant perceives relationships like an art that requires time, attention and creative effort. Annie Besant 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 Annie Besant fights about anything, it is often about something she feels is unfair and unbalanced. Balance is very important to Annie. She believes in moderation in all things and avoids fanaticism and extremism at all costs.
Annie Besant also has a strong need for beautiful, harmonious surroundings and a natural sense of artistic style and grace, which is reflected in the way Besant 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.
Annie Besant invests a tremendous amount of her creative energy into her relationships with others, particularly her marriage or other close partnerships. Annie 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 bring about mutual understanding, harmony, and satisfaction is an area in which Annie Besant can really excel. Counseling or negotiating are talents of hers.
Annie Besant 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 Annie does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Besant, as are her personal appearance and attractiveness.
Annie Besant 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. Annie has difficulty satisfying both her need to be an individual and her need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Annie sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to her or what Annie really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
While Annie Besant deeply appreciates beauty and has a great desire for love, she is in no way frivolous or indiscriminate in her affections. Besant can be very frugal and sparing with both money and emotions.
Annie has to overcome considerable hardship in order to fulfill her personal destiny. However, she does have 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 Annie 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. Annie Besant needs to learn to follow her own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what her critics or the authorities say.
Her emotions are in tune with her intentions and Annie Besant goes about her business with complete oneness. Annie Besant has a positive attitude towards life and a high spirit of enterprise. There could be a strong tie between Annie and her mother or her wife.
Her vitality is not up to par and her will-power a bit weak, making Annie Besant vulnerable to swindle or deceit. Her inner discontent and casual attitude could easily lead Besant into dubious schemes. Annie should refrain from any activity that seems to be subversive.
