Because she is supportive and nurturing (as mentioned in the previous chapter), and also practical and well grounded (as described below), Bernadette Chirac is a great source of solace and emotional support for other people. Bernadette Chirac 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 Chirac's course is set, she pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway her from her purpose.
Bernadette Chirac 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 Bernadette Chirac 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, Chirac can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Bernadette Chirac 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. Bernadette Chirac 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 Chirac for support. Though she hates upheaval and sudden changes, Bernadette Chirac usually maintains her poise and equanimity. Bernadette Chirac 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".
Bernadette 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 Chirac's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Bernadette Chirac 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 Bernadette Chirac really shines and expresses her creativity. An awareness of politics or the larger social impact of individual actions is natural to her.
Chirac alternates between aggression and apathy and sometimes feels that she is unable to meet all the demands made on her. Once Bernadette Chirac becomes aware of what she needs to do, however, she is capable of working long and hard, not giving up until her work is done.
Chirac seems to lack self-confidence and has a sense of anxiety and insecurity that has no obvious cause. Bernadette Chirac tends to withdraw and her outlook in general could be a bit too negative. Bernadette Chirac should beware of letting her emotional tension react to her physical well-being.
