In addition to Brooke's strong personal loyalties and the devotion she feels for her nearest and dearest relations (as described on the previous page), Brooke Burns has great compassion and sensitivity toward people in all walks of life. Brooke Burns has a gift for understanding and appreciating a wide variety of art and life styles.
Moreover, Burns should be careful not to be taken advantage of by others. Her good heart and innocent, unsuspecting attitude can make Brooke Burns a victim of others' greed. If this happens, Brooke needs to avoid becoming bitter and resentful about life, and instead, to allow her great compassion and sensitivity to blossom and shine, rather than be dimmed by a few mistakes.
At heart she is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of her imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Brooke Burns as anything in the outer world, though she may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting her inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, she has a rich inner life, though Burns may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Brooke Burns usually keeps to herself.
Brooke shows great sensitivity and empathy toward others and often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. She is tolerant, forgiving and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. Brooke has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and she often feels the pain of others as if it were her own. Brooke Burns sympathizes with the needy, the disadvantaged and the misfits of society. She is capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker or minister. However, Burns tends to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of her kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon her. Brooke has little sense of boundaries, or of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not her strong points.
She is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and she tries to avoid open conflict. Burns will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Burns tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. She is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Brooke Burns does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
Her gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for she possesses great sensitivity, inspiration and limitless imagination. Brooke Burns has a strong affinity for beauty and love.
Her faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than take strong, definite action to change her life for the better. She also tends to become so detached from her immediate environment that she lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around Burns more than it bothers her.
Her career, reputation, and public image are very important to Burns. Brooke Burns has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy her; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Brooke Burns may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Brooke Burns often feels that she is at cross purposes with herself, for her conscious intentions and desires conflict with her subconscious emotional needs and drives. She is torn in two different directions. Brooke has difficulty satisfying both her need to be an individual and her need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Brooke sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to her or what Brooke really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
She is a positive, vital, energetic and active go-getter. She enjoys competition, and her initiative and self-confidence make Brooke Burns a winner.
Brooke has big aspirations and the desire to succeed in life in a grand way. Brooke Burns tends to exaggerate, promise more than is feasible and misjudge by being overly optimistic. However, she never gives up on her hopes for the future. Burns tends to be restless and discontent with the responsibilities and limitations of life.
While Brooke Burns does have a strong drive, she frequently holds herself back. One of her challenges lies in learning to endure frustration and to patiently overcome the obstacles in her life (or her own internal caution and resistance!).
However she also has a more somber side, which keeps Burns' optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Brooke Burns tends to seesaw between her faith, vision and high aspirations, and her caution and realism (or fear!). She cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and she accepts the need for hard work. Her skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
Brooke has to overcome considerable hardship in order to fulfill her personal destiny. However, she does have the strength and stamina necessary to do so. Support and helpful guidance from her father or other significant men in her life may well be lacking. In fact, their disapproval of Brooke and their harsh criticism are apt to be two of her greatest handicaps, and at times she may feel quite discouraged and alone. But true self-reliance and a solid sense of her own powers may well be the silver lining to that cloud in her life. Brooke Burns needs to learn to follow her own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what her critics or the authorities say.
Burns depends a great deal on other people's reactions to her and rarely acts until she sees how she affects others. Brooke Burns must learn to be direct and straightforward, rather than evasive or manipulative. Brooke should also learn to rely heavily on her hunches.
