Audra McDonald'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).
McDonald's "elemental make-up" is described below. Remember that most people are "unbalanced" or lopsided, and if Audra 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.
Finding her life's work - a concrete means of self-expression - and discovering her place in the world is one of her fundamental challenges. Audra McDonald tends to feel out of place in the world, with no solid sense of security. Audra McDonald often lives in the private world of her imagination and though she may have a very rich inner life, McDonald has the tendency to avoid doing anything productive with it. The more prosaic, material side of life either baffles or disinterests her, yet Audra needs to develop this side of herself.
Constancy, patience, and practicality are qualities that McDonald needs to cultivate.
Her outward behavior, which - as we shall see in the next chapter - is rather lighthearted and rational in nature, can be very deceiving since, overall, Audra McDonald is quite an emotional, deeply feeling, often irrational person.
