Although Candice Bergen often appears self-controlled, disciplined, and even somewhat of an ascetic (as described on the previous page), there is also a pleasure-loving sensualist in her that thoroughly enjoys "the good life". She may sometimes feel torn between saving her hard-earned money and conserving her resources versus indulging herself and appeasing her appetite for pleasure and beauty.
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 Bergen's course is set, she pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway her from her purpose.
Candice Bergen 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 Candice Bergen 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, Bergen can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Candice Bergen 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. Candice Bergen 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 Bergen for support. Though she hates upheaval and sudden changes, Candice Bergen usually maintains her poise and equanimity. Candice Bergen 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".
Candice 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 Bergen's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Candice Bergen lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open her mind to new horizons.
Candice Bergen has a very dramatic, creative, expressive nature and she loves to perform. Candice enjoys being the center of attention and she seeks to shine, to excel, and to be outstanding in some unique way. She is very involved in her own creativity and self-expression, and takes great pleasure in developing and using her special talents, whether these are artistic, athletic, or intellectual. Candice Bergen has a strong sense of pride.
Bergen occasionally gamble, splurge, or overextend herself in ways that may be quite at odds with her usual way of doing things. Exaggerating her accomplishments or spending too much in order to impress others and build up her own self-esteem can be a problem. However, Candice Bergen also has faith and an optimistic side, which enable her to recover from the negative consequences of her excesses, and to learn from them.
However she also has a more somber side, which keeps Bergen's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Candice Bergen 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.
Candice Bergen has a healthy amount of self-control and self-discipline. Bergen also radiates a rather responsible, trustworthy, solid feeling about herself which will win her the confidence of others, especially her superiors.
Bergen always seems to find the right words to verbalize her feelings, especially in regard to love and friendship. Candice Bergen also has a keen sense of beauty and she probably appreciates art, music or poetry.
Bergen depends a great deal on other people's reactions to her and rarely acts until she sees how she affects others. Candice Bergen must learn to be direct and straightforward, rather than evasive or manipulative. Candice should also learn to rely heavily on her hunches.
