Cassandra does not appear to be an intensely emotional or sentimental person, and she is often unaware of her own or other people's deeper feelings and emotional needs. Tears and tantrums bewilder her and make her very uncomfortable. Cassandra Harris would rather settle differences by talking things out reasonably and rationally, but she tends to ignore or poke fun at any attempt to probe her own or others' inner depths.
Cassandra Harris avoids heavy, demanding emotional relationships and is wary of making personal commitments.
She needs ample mental stimulation and feels close to people with whom she can share thoughts and intellectual interests. Conversation is very important to Harris. The strong, silent partner is not for her.
Cassandra Harris often makes decisions solely for emotional or personal reasons, because something "feels right" or because she has always done it a certain way and is uncomfortable acting otherwise. Even when Harris thinks she is being rational, her prejudices, intuitions and feelings influence her thoughts a great deal. Cassandra is comfortable talking about feelings and personal subjects, and sharing confidences, which enables others to express their own inner feelings with her as well. Cassandra Harris has good psychological insight into others.
She is prone to be overly indulgent, overly permissive, overly generous and disinclined to budget or diet or set reasonable limits for herself or others. Subconsciously Cassandra Harris feels entitled to bounty, and sees no reason to be deprived. At her worst, Harris can be greedy but insatiable, and addicted to "the good life". However, if other factors in her chart indicate a capacity for discipline and prudence, there is a positive side to Cassandra's emotional indulgence - Harris tends to be quite charitable and tolerant, freely giving and willing to embrace others despite their shortcomings.
There is another side to Cassandra Harris as well, a rather introverted, self-contained, even pessimistic side which tempers her good cheer and generosity, as discussed below.
Cassandra Harris often feels that she must do something or be something other than what she is in order to receive approval and acceptance from others. She is very sensitive to criticism and easily feels left out or neglected, and though she may appear cool or distant, Harris actually cares very much about being included. Because she is so sensitive, it may seem easier for Cassandra Harris to withdraw into a shell rather than risk the emotional bumps and bruises she may endure once she lets others really know her in an intimate, personal way. Her reserve and caution make establishing close emotional relationships with others difficult, and Cassandra Harris becomes very attached to the few people she considers "real friends". Harris can gain inner security and strength through periods of solitude if she views them as times to nourish herself and develop her own interests, rather than as times of loneliness.
Cassandra Harris responds in a strong emotional way to the influence of her environment and has a need to reform those around her. Cassandra has a very powerful psychic influence on others and they may look to Harris for guidance and direction, and she rarely lets them down.
In love relationships, Cassandra Harris desires a deep, intense and passionate union with her beloved and forms very strong emotional bonds and attachments. Cassandra "marries" the person she loves at a very deep emotional level, and is often extremely possessive and jealous of anyone who may pose a threat to that union. Harris can be very demanding of her love partner. Cassandra Harris tends to be somewhat suspicious of her partner's relationships, even if they are merely platonic. If she is ever betrayed, Cassandra Harris is capable of hating with as much force and intensity as she once loved. She is attracted to people who have an aura of mystery about them.
Cassandra is attracted to foreigners, exotic places, traveling and people who can expand her horizons, teach her something, or show her places and worlds she has never experienced before. Sharing a philosophy or ideal with her love partner is important to her.
Moreover, Cassandra Harris feels love and kinship for people everywhere, not only for her own family, nationality, or group. Finding similarities and making links between people from differing backgrounds or with different perspectives is a gift of hers.
