Bo Derek responds very much to the emotional tone and atmosphere around her, and can be dominated by her fluctuating and unpredictable moods. Derek often appears irrational to others because she cannot always explain the reason or source of her feelings. Anyone who lives with Bo Derek must accept her ups and downs and appreciate Bo's need for times of withdrawal.
Bo Derek is also very sympathetic and understands the unspoken feelings and needs of others. Bo Derek takes slights and rebuffs very personally and though she may forgive a transgression by a friend or loved one, she never forgets it.
Bo Derek often makes decisions solely for emotional or personal reasons, because something "feels right" or because she has always done it a certain way and she is uncomfortable changing it. Even when Derek thinks she is being rational, her prejudices, intuitions, and feelings influence her thoughts a great deal. Bo is comfortable talking about feelings and personal subjects, and sharing confidences, which enables others to express their own inner feelings with her as well. Bo Derek has good psychological insight into others.
Derek can be hard to get close to. Subconsciously she may feel that too much closeness in her relationships will interfere with doing what she needs to do and being her own person, so Bo Derek puts up subtle walls and distance herself when someone begins to want more of her than she can comfortably give. However, Derek may cut off sources of emotional nourishment and support that way, and end up feeling alone and lonely. Bo Derek might even develop digestive problems. Overcoming her fears of intimacy, while at the same time affirming and acting on her autonomous needs, is the challenge here.
The beauty and harmony of her surroundings has a very powerful effect on Derek's emotions. She is very sensitive and cannot stand to be in an atmosphere where there is discord or dissonance. Gentle, kindhearted, and peace-loving, Bo Derek will give or sacrifice much in order to avoid a fight and to "make everyone happy".
Bo has very deep feelings and profound attachments to people she cares about. Her relationships to her mother, sisters, daughters, and other females in her life are apt to be incredibly close and intense. Bo Derek may be easily manipulated too, when it comes to one of these important relationships, because she is so emotionally invested in it.
Bo Derek seems to be happy in her environment and is likely to be the center of attraction in her surroundings. Bo Derek has a kind, warm-hearted and cordial nature and she treats others with sympathetic and compassionate understanding.
Bo Derek possesses the gifts of tact, courtesy, consideration, and a strong desire to please and understand her love partner. Because she values harmony so much, Bo Derek will compromise a great deal to avoid any discord or conflict in her relationships. Bo does not like to dwell on controversial or emotionally difficult subjects, and often tries to "smooth things over" or "sweep them under the rug".
In love relationships, Bo Derek wants an intellectual peer, an equal, and a friend. She is attracted to people who have a certain finesse, delicacy, and subtlety. Bo Derek appreciates good manners and refinement and is not happy with a coarse, blunt type of person.
Derek is a very personable, affectionate, loving friend and will always have many people in her relationships that love and cherish her. Bo Derek prefers being with others rather than on her own, and she feels very incomplete without a special person in her life to share her love with. Being half of a close, loving relationship is very important to Bo.
Bo is a peacemaker, the one who adapts, harmonizes, and makes concessions for the sake of the relationship. Her charm and agreeableness makes Bo Derek very popular.
There can be a lack of harmony or satisfaction in Derek's romantic relationships - not necessarily a great deal of open conflict, but simply an underlying tension or discontent. This is because the people Bo Derek finds likeable, lovable, and agreeable to she may not be at all attuned to her sexual tastes and needs. Another, more direct way of saying this is, the people Bo loves and the people Bo wants to make love with are very different from one another. Bo Derek may be confused about what she really needs and wants in personal relationships. Derek needs to acknowledge that she has some conflicting desires (such as a partner who is very gentle and sensitive but also a powerful, dominant personality, or security and commitment in love relationships but also a lot of freedom and excitement.) Trying to satisfy both sides of the equation can be a tricky challenge.
She is very romantic, idealistic, and imaginative about love relationships. Bo Derek yearns for her "true love" or "soulmate" and may become disappointed in others who never quite live up to her dream image of the perfect lover. Derek frequently fantasizes about love and often falls in love with someone she can only love from afar. She may avoid making a definite personal commitment. Gentle and sensitive, Bo Derek does not like to be approached in a very direct or aggressive manner. She is attracted to those with artistic or mystical inclinations.
