Although Carolyn Cassady is quite proud and likes to show off and impress other people with her accomplishments and appearance (as described on the previous page) - she is really quite practical, solid, and down to earth (as discussed below). Because of this, she is likely to actually earn the right to be admired - that is, to have actually done something to be proud of.
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 Cassady's course is set, she pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway her from her purpose.
Carolyn Cassady 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 Carolyn Cassady 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, Cassady can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Carolyn Cassady 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. Carolyn Cassady 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 Cassady for support. Though she hates upheaval and sudden changes, Carolyn Cassady usually maintains her poise and equanimity. Carolyn Cassady 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".
Carolyn 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 Cassady's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Carolyn Cassady lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open her mind to new horizons.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand her intellectual horizons and broaden her understanding of the world are very attractive to Cassady.
Carolyn Cassady has a philosophical turn of mind and is concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting the overview of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy her mind much of the time.
There is an ongoing, subtle conflict within Carolyn Cassady, between her conscious attitudes and aspirations, and her deeper emotional and subconscious beliefs, needs, and feelings. This creates considerable inner stress and sometimes paralyzing indecision, mostly due to the fact that Carolyn may be trying to follow a path that is at odds with her subconscious desires. Chronic tightness or tension in her body may well be a signal that Carolyn Cassady is denying or suppressing the messages from her subconscious or emotional self.
Ideally, Carolyn Cassady will learn to accept the two quite different aspects of her and to express both of them. If she cannot do this, Cassady is apt to attract many relationships into her life with people who reflect her denied or repressed qualities, and who seem to make her life difficult. (Read also chapter 4 in order to get a better picture of the duality described here.)
Carolyn Cassady undergoes deep, transformative changes in her life with relative ease and a minimum of conscious resistance. Because she does not avoid the depths, Cassady has access to a lot of personal power and strength. Without realizing it or seeking it, Carolyn is apt to have quite a potent effect on the people she comes into contact with, even superficially. Others sense that Carolyn Cassady is a force to be reckoned with.
