Because she is supportive and nurturing (as mentioned in the previous chapter), and also practical and well grounded (as described below), Cate Blanchett is a great source of solace and emotional support for other people. Cate Blanchett is actually more stable and solid than her rather mellow demeanor would suggest.
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 Blanchett's course is set, she pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway her from her purpose.
Cate Blanchett 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 Cate Blanchett 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, Blanchett can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Cate Blanchett 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. Cate Blanchett 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 Blanchett for support. Though she hates upheaval and sudden changes, Cate Blanchett usually maintains her poise and equanimity. Cate Blanchett 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".
Cate 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 Blanchett's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Cate Blanchett lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open her mind to new horizons.
Her career, reputation, and public image are very important to Blanchett. Cate Blanchett 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. Cate Blanchett may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Cate has lofty aspirations but does not struggle or labor to achieve them. Her self-confidence and inner harmony attract success and benefit her in an almost magical way. Her optimism and cheerful generosity also win Blanchett many allies and successes in life.
Cate Blanchett is extremely sensitive, compassionate and giving, often to her own detriment. Her ideals and spiritual values motivate Cate Blanchett, and she cannot live for personal gain or materialistic concerns alone. There must be an element of beauty, magic, imagination, inspiration or creativity in what she does. Otherwise Cate Blanchett becomes listless and aimless. The arts, theater, music and/or charitable work are ideally suited to Cate.
Cate Blanchett deeply believes in her own power and her ability to survive any change and emerge victorious from any difficulty. Cate has tremendous inner resources and strength. Intense, strong willed, and zealous, she pursues her desires and goals with complete dedication and singleness of purpose, and she may be somewhat compulsive and even fanatical at times. Cate likes to live intensely and has no respect for people who are weak or avoid confronting life and their own destiny.
Blanchett is very thorough and takes her time thinking things through. She enjoys games that require a lot of concentration and thought, like chess for example. Cate Blanchett also could find traveling very rewarding.
