Brigitte Horney's fundamental needs, values, and orientation towards life are symbolized by the four astrological elements. Each person has their own unique balance of these four basic energies: fire (warmth, inspiration, enthusiasm), earth (practicality, realism, material interests), air (social and intellectual qualities), and water (emotional needs and feelings).
Horney's "elemental make-up" is described below. Remember that most people are "unbalanced" or lopsided, and if Brigitte is lacking or deficient in a certain element (or elements), it simply means that she needs to consciously develop that particular aspect in order to appreciate and/or work harder in that dimension of life.
Sometimes we overestimate the element that we are least endowed with, sensing it as a lack within ourselves, but more often we neglect or ignore it. The qualities described below will be reiterated and explained in more detail in the following pages.
Her life is likely to be full of emotional extremes, turbulence, joy and sorrow stemming from her own passionate nature and unpredictability. Brigitte Horney is impulsive and temperamental. For Brigitte, everything is intensely personal and colored by emotion. She may have difficulty viewing a situation from a detached, impartial or rational perspective, and she has little inclination to structure and order her life. However, fostering self-discipline, organization and focus is essential. Otherwise Brigitte Horney will be prone to extreme moodiness, alternating between lofty inspiration and despondency.
At times, Brigitte Horney feels a great deal of internal pressure due to two of her dominant impulses which tend to conflict with one another. The desire for independence and freedom, the need for self-expression and ego recognition, and the urge to leave the past behind in order to propel herself into new experiences may clash with other, equally powerful needs - namely attachments to people and to the familiar, a compelling urge for emotional closeness, and a desire for security. Balancing these two drives is a significant challenge for Horney.
Even though her life may be less balanced and perhaps less stable than that of others, it is unlikely that Brigitte Horney would change it because she is very vibrant, sensitive and responsive to the ever-changing, dynamic quality of life.
