drive and ambition
Once Bette Davis sets her mind on a goal, her dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Davis pursues her ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Bette labors patiently and steadfastly until she achieves what she wants - or until it is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that all is lost. She is a reliable, consistent and productive worker, and she often shoulders more of the workload than her co-workers, usually without complaint. She often ends up with the nitty-gritty work. She prefers a regular routine, with definite hours and clearly defined responsibilities and tasks. In fact, establishing a pattern or routine is very important to her success because once she gets started in a certain direction, it is easy for Bette Davis to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Bette Davis has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for her to overcome before Davis gets going; but once she gets a momentum going, her energy level is strong and steady.
She is interested in concrete results and solid, practical achievements. Bette Davis needs to have some tangible product or contribution to show for her efforts, and cannot be content with only intangible rewards (such as having a good time, learning, or spiritual enrichment). Material well-being and security is also a large factor in determining what she does. Bette's stamina and persistence are her greatest assets, but they can also work against her; she can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Bette Davis also tends to play it safe, and to limit herself as a result.
Davis is attracted to feisty, dynamic, strong-willed people, and she seems to need a lot of fireworks in her personal relationships. Bette Davis can be very combative, or get involved with people who are. Ideally Bette will join with people who are energetic and ambitious, but not too domineering or aggressive.
Conscientious, responsible, and serious about her work, Bette Davis accomplishes a great deal through her dedication. She is the person in the office or company who follows through, quietly sustains the effort, and keeps on going in spite of tedium, setbacks, or dry spells. This is often the key to Bette's success. However, Bette Davis is humble about her accomplishments and contributions, and may thus not receive the recognition or recompense that she deserves.
Her efforts to do something are likely to be half-hearted. Bette Davis tends to get discouraged easily and may lack an incentive to work. Her sexual drive also may be somewhat low and Davis tends to be averse to physical exertion in general.
Bette Davis 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. Bette 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 Bette's life.
Bette Davis tends to want to take the easy road to success, and unless other factors in her chart suggest a capacity for effort or a lot of energy, laziness could interfere with achieving whatever ambitions Davis has. She tends to gain her objectives through her personal charm and appeal. Bette Davis also possesses a fine aesthetic sense which could be a prominent factor in her career.
Davis is intensely competitive, and may engage in furious battles of will, numerous conflicts, and possible public controversy, on her way to gaining her objectives. Bette Davis could be drawn to activities that are dangerous, in the line of fire, so to speak. She puts herself on the line. Anger or recklessness could be her downfall.
To achieve her ambitions and long-range goals will require much stamina and self-reliance as well as a clearly defined strategy. Numerous setbacks, obstructions or delays can also be expected. A father figure, mentor, or authority in Davis' life may withdraw support at a crucial time. However, this will not stop Bette Davis and may ultimately be a blessing in disguise.
She is a bit restless and always seems to be in motion. Bette Davis probably had the desire to go her own way early in life, wanting to learn from her own mistakes and experiences. Her plans for the future are far-reaching and Bette Davis may choose an unusual career.
