Babette van Veen
Even though she is emotionally intense and can be somewhat of a pressure cooker at times (as described on the previous page), Babette van Veen is very grounded and stable at heart, as described in more detail below. Her essentially sensible, practical nature enables Babette van Veen to direct some of her powerful feelings and drives into productive channels.
She is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of her greatest assets. Once van Veen's course is set, she pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway her from her purpose.
Babette van Veen has a very practical nature; she wants to see concrete, tangible results for her efforts, and she is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of her "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for she has a great love of the physical world and she wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Babette van Veen will work long and persistently, she also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and she wants to enjoy what she has worked for. In fact, van Veen can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Babette van Veen also loves the beauty of the natural world and she probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, her needs are simple and she is easy to please. Babette van Veen has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless she is forced to do so. She is not very demanding emotionally, though she does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of her faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon van Veen for support. Though she hates upheaval and sudden changes, Babette van Veen usually maintains her poise and equanimity. Babette van Veen also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. She makes an excellent parent, especially if she follows her instincts more often than "the experts".
Babette has three major faults: one is her bullheaded obstinacy. The second is her unwillingness to deviate from her safe, predictable routine. And the third is van Veen's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Babette van Veen lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open her mind to new horizons.
Her energies are directed toward either honing her professional techniques, skills and abilities or "perfecting", refining, and improving herself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. Babette van Veen is highly motivated to strive for a state of wholeness or optimal functioning and she is quite a perfectionist!
van Veen can easily become overly identified or involved with the task she performs, with her work, or with her own health and "growth process".
Babette van Veen tends to see things from her perspective only and to be rather subjective. She also enjoys talking and expressing her views but does not always listen as well. Babette van Veen has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Both sensitive and sensuous, Babette blends charm and energy. Babette van Veen has a healthy sexuality and a good balance between activity and passivity. She may be fond of singing, dancing, music and drama. Romance comes easily to Babette, and her romantic relationships are passionate.
