drive and ambition
Once Carolyn Murphy sets her mind on a goal, her dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Murphy pursues her ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Carolyn labors patiently and steadfastly until she achieves what she wants - or until it is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that all is lost. She is a reliable, consistent and productive worker, and she often shoulders more of the workload than her co-workers, usually without complaint. She often ends up with the nitty-gritty work. She prefers a regular routine, with definite hours and clearly defined responsibilities and tasks. In fact, establishing a pattern or routine is very important to her success because once she gets started in a certain direction, it is easy for Carolyn Murphy to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Carolyn Murphy has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for her to overcome before Murphy gets going; but once she gets a momentum going, her energy level is strong and steady.
She is interested in concrete results and solid, practical achievements. Carolyn Murphy needs to have some tangible product or contribution to show for her efforts, and cannot be content with only intangible rewards (such as having a good time, learning, or spiritual enrichment). Material well-being and security is also a large factor in determining what she does. Carolyn's stamina and persistence are her greatest assets, but they can also work against her; she can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Carolyn Murphy also tends to play it safe, and to limit herself as a result.
Carolyn Murphy meets numerous challenges and possibly defeats in pursuit of her goals and desires, and her setbacks often occur because Carolyn has been too rash or intent on working her own will regardless of the impact on others. Carolyn Murphy is intense and passionate, and simply does not know when to stop sometimes! Recklessness with others can be a problem for Murphy.
Carolyn Murphy has a streak of the pacifist or defeatist in her. Learning to assert herself in a strong, clear, forthright manner, and developing stamina in the face of obstacles are necessary to counter such tendencies. To accomplish all she is capable of, it would also be very beneficial for Carolyn Murphy to work on building up her physical energy. Carolyn needs to get regular exercise, eat healthfully, get plenty of rest (something she may require more of than average), and especially avoid activities and people that dissipate and waste her time.
She is intensely willful and can create trouble for herself by rather unconsciously forging ahead, without realizing that she is trampling over people. Sometimes, if Carolyn Murphy cannot get what she wants directly, she will try to dominate, manipulate, or seek power in a covert, subtle sort of way.
Her energy may be a bit low and Murphy does not seem to have enough stamina to resist external powers. Carolyn Murphy could easily be used as a medium, or someone else may set her up as a tool to further their interests without Carolyn knowing what is really going on.
Carolyn Murphy seems to be compelled to defend her rights and may be subject to angry upsets or quarrels in her relationships. At times Carolyn Murphy could be the force behind the scenes and may be attracted to some kind of secret mission, such as a secret agent.
In some ways Carolyn Murphy may feels that she has little choice about her role in society. She is compelled either by unusual outer circumstances or by an inner drive, to bring things which may be dark, difficult, or taboo, into public awareness. Carolyn delves into the hidden side of life, things which may have been purposefully concealed or repressed, and brings these things to light. Carolyn Murphy could come into direct conflict with the authorities or powers-that-be as a result. She is apt to have extraordinary ambitions, and could also become overly zealous and fanatical.
Her profession could involve physical strength and prowess, such as athletics, fire fighting, law enforcement, or the military. Carolyn Murphy would never be happy in a quiet, sit-down job. Vigorous competition and strenuous work are undoubtedly key components of both what Carolyn Murphy does and how she achieves her long-range goals.
Her professional goals and long-range ambitions may be vague and difficult for Carolyn Murphy to define for quite a long time. This is partly due to the fact that they are not very conventional, concrete, or worldly. Carolyn is apt to have more of a spiritual vocation or calling. Healing, counseling, the ministry, music, art - or some combination thereof - may well be part of her role in life. On the other hand, Carolyn Murphy may simply be confused and seemingly not ambitious at all in the professional realm.
