Because she is supportive and nurturing (as mentioned in the previous chapter), and also practical and well grounded (as described below), Beatrice Lillie is a great source of solace and emotional support for other people. Beatrice Lillie is actually more stable and solid than her rather mellow demeanor would suggest.
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 Lillie's course is set, she pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway her from her purpose.
Beatrice Lillie 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 Beatrice Lillie 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, Lillie can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Beatrice Lillie 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. Beatrice Lillie 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 Lillie for support. Though she hates upheaval and sudden changes, Beatrice Lillie usually maintains her poise and equanimity. Beatrice Lillie 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".
Beatrice 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 Lillie's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Beatrice Lillie lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open her mind to new horizons.
Leading groups and classes and being involved in community efforts, social activities, events or movements are areas where Beatrice Lillie really shines and expresses her creativity. An awareness of politics or the larger social impact of individual actions comes naturally to her.
She is very receptive and sensitive but has a tendency to over-idealize, making her approach to love relationships, romance or marriage somewhat unrealistic. Beatrice Lillie also tends to be a bit absent-minded and naive, leaving herself open for being taken, swindled or lied to.
She may lack direction and drive and tends to compare herself unfavorably to others. Lillie alternates between caution and unrealistic expectations and lets others expect too much of her. But Beatrice Lillie plods forward steadily, reaching success later in life.
