drive and ambition
She is a perfectionist and has high standards for her own work. Barbara Hershey often feels that if she wants something done right she must do it herself, for others do not do as thorough a job as she does. Doing a task well is very important to her, and she may labor over minute details that others would not bother with. Barbara Hershey strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and she becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Barbara Hershey can become so much of a perfectionist and so self-critical that she will not even attempt many activities and projects, feeling that her efforts will simply not be good enough. She is usually modest and realistic in assessing what she can accomplish and, if anything, Barbara Hershey underestimates herself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Hershey does apply herself diligently in a given area, she gradually gains self-confidence as she masters skills and develops expertise.
Barbara Hershey conserves her energy and paces herself so that she does not waste or diffuse her efforts. An unwillingness to take risks or venture from the beaten track can sometimes limit her opportunities. In short, Hershey may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.
Hershey plays vigorously and enjoys competitive games and physical rough-and-tumble activities. Athletics and/or physical activities have great appeal for her. Barbara Hershey takes the initiative in sports and also in romantic relationships: she is ardent in pursuing anything she desires.
Barbara Hershey has a good balance between idealism, optimism, and vision for the future on one hand and a realistic sense of what can actually be achieved on the other hand. Her judgment and business sense are usually quite good. Barbara possesses patience and the ability to accept limitation and frustration on the way to her goals.
Older, more experienced individuals or mentors are likely to play a significant and beneficial role in Barbara's life.
In meeting her challenges and difficulties in life, Barbara Hershey does have allies: her ability to tolerate tension and ambivalence, her ability to compromise, and a capacity to endure discomfort. Remaining steady in the midst of crisis or sudden change is an aspect of this, as well as knowing when to wait and when to make necessary changes. Barbara's timing is usually good.
Indecision and confusion over her ambitions or direction in life may hold Barbara back from achieving anything solid, especially in her early life. She is very much a dreamer and her interests and inclinations may not translate very readily into concrete goals. Personal glory or accomplishment can never be Hershey's sole motivation or drive in life. Ministering to others in some way may be her calling, however. Or Barbara Hershey could use her dreamy, imaginative energies in creative ways - the arts, music or entertainment field.
Hershey may well have an unusual destiny or pivotal role to play in a drama that involves much more than her own personal ambitions and professional aims. This could involve uncovering secrets, bringing deception, cruelty, or injustice to light, or making fundamental changes in some field. Barbara's work may also include dealing with life and death situations, crises, and emergencies. Somewhere along the way, fate may force Hershey's hand - and it may require some self-sacrifice on her part. On the other hand, her real work may be rather subtle - a quiet transformation of a particular area or field. Barbara Hershey is meant to do in-depth work.
