Tenderhearted and sympathetic to an unusual degree, Ava Gardner has an understanding of other people's feelings and needs which borders on telepathy. Ava Gardner is extremely compassionate and cannot bear to see any fellow creature - human or animal - suffer. Because of her kindness and nonjudgmental attitude, people suffering from pain or confusion are drawn to Gardner for help, which she readily gives. Sometimes Gardner's soft-heartedness is taken advantage of.
She is a gentle, poetic soul and has a great love and affinity for music. Because many of her feelings are vague and she cannot easily verbalize how she experiences life, music seems a natural language for Gardner. She is also extremely romantic and often "in love with love".
Ava Gardner may have done extensive traveling in her early years, or in some way had a background which enables her to understand and identify with many different types of people or cultures.
Gardner has a craving for things which are far away and foreign or for things she has never experienced before. Ava Gardner wants to completely immerse herself in the feelings and tastes of a new place, rather than simply have facts or an intellectual appreciation. Emotionally, too, Ava is restless and something of a wanderer.
Gardner can be hard to get close to. Subconsciously she may feel that too much closeness in her relationships will interfere with doing what she needs to do and being her own person, so Ava Gardner puts up subtle walls and distance herself when someone begins to want more of her than she can comfortably give. However, Gardner may cut off sources of emotional nourishment and support that way, and end up feeling alone and lonely. Ava Gardner might even develop digestive problems. Overcoming her fears of intimacy, while at the same time affirming and acting on her autonomous needs, is the challenge here.
Highly sensitive and rather easily taken in, Ava Gardner needs to beware of deceiving herself and allowing others to take advantage of her impressionability or gentleness. Daydreaming, fantasizing, or other forms of imaginative, escapist behavior (such as watching television excessively or living her life through romance novels) could be something of an addiction for Gardner. Ava Gardner tends to confuse images with reality and needs to learn to be more circumspect and discriminating. Disappointments through women and in close relationships may occur if Gardner does not.
Ava's emotional life seems to be overly intense and her sexuality is very strong. Ava Gardner is likely to make many demands of her partner and she has to guard against possessiveness, jealousy and a tendency to force someone to love her.
Ava Gardner tends to be a bit pessimistic and is inclined to feel emotional depressed a lot. Ava may feel like withdrawing from everything, but should try to listen to others' point of view in order to balance her overly pessimistic views.
In love relationships, Ava Gardner desires a deep, intense and passionate union with her beloved and forms very strong emotional bonds and attachments. Ava "marries" the person she loves at a very deep emotional level, and is often extremely possessive and jealous of anyone who may pose a threat to that union. Gardner can be very demanding of her love partner. Ava Gardner tends to be somewhat suspicious of her partner's relationships, even if they are merely platonic. If she is ever betrayed, Ava Gardner is capable of hating with as much force and intensity as she once loved. She is attracted to people who have an aura of mystery about them.
Ava Gardner loves romance and wishes that the honeymoon phase of her love relationships would last forever! Gardner needs dramatic romantic gestures and displays of affection from her partner, and she wants to feel very, very special, like a royalty, to her beloved. Ava Gardner also has an artistic flair and she enjoys creating art or beauty in some form.
Ava Gardner tends to suppress her feelings and she approaches other people with great reserve. She may feel lonesome, but unable to bridge the gap between her and others. But once Ava Gardner enters a relationship, she will be faithful and steady in her feelings for her partner.
