drive and ambition
She is aspiring, enterprising, and forever following some bright and distant star, planning some new venture or investigating new potentials. She is definitely "upwardly mobile" in either a material or spiritual sense. Avril Lavigne aims high and is not content simply with a quiet, secure existence. Avril likes to stretch her limits, to see how far she can go, and to take risks. She is a positive thinker, expects success for herself, and is philosophical about failures. Lavigne is flexible and she bounces back from disappointment rather quickly, usually with another hopeful new idea she wants to try. Her enthusiasm and confidence are contagious and enable Avril Lavigne to enlist the aid and support she needs for her projects. However, Avril Lavigne sometimes promises more than she can actually achieve, because she is overly optimistic or pays insufficient attention to the practicalities involved.
She also tends to get distracted and to have too many things going at once. Although it is very difficult for her, there are times when Avril Lavigne simply must develop commitment, perseverance, and persistence in order to make her dreams and goals a concrete reality. Too often Avril Lavigne falls short of what she could attain because she is unwilling to persist through the difficult or less exciting times.

Avril Lavigne has a very active and fertile imagination and her ambitions are never strictly mundane, practical, and concrete. Avril Lavigne has a strong desire to act out her fantasies, dreams, visions, and ideals. Artistic creation, drama, or other areas in which Lavigne can express herself imaginatively are excellent for her. Ordinary life seems drab and uninteresting to Avril, and she needs to have some big dream or something larger than her own narrow personal interests to live for. Sometimes she may be confused about exactly how and where to direct her energy and she often drifts along rather than making clear decisions about what she wants. Avril Lavigne has a passive side and at times lacks the will power, physical energy, strength, and the fighting spirit to achieve her aims.
Language, words, communication, networking, clarity of speech or writing, being a messenger or go-between - these are key features in her career, as well as how Avril Lavigne goes about achieving her goals and ambitions. "Work smarter, not harder" is Lavigne's motto.
