mental interests and abilities
One of Catherine's greatest assets is her ability to see both sides of an issue, and to negotiate and bring about compromise and reconciliation. Tactful, reasonable, and with considerable social finesse, Catherine Zeta-Jones works well with people in business as well as in personal relationships. She is objective and somewhat detached from emotional bias, and makes an excellent consultant, mediator, or public relations person. Catherine Zeta-Jones insists upon fairness and seeks to bring harmony or at least peaceful coexistence between people, and her diplomacy is a benefit in any business or social situation. Catherine Zeta-Jones also has fine aesthetic sensitivities and could work in an artistic or cultural environment.
Catherine has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and wisdom and for an ever broadening understanding of life. Catherine Zeta-Jones is the perpetual student and will be involved in higher education, philosophy, or religion. Law, broadcasting, publishing, or fields of communications are also areas that interest Zeta Jones. World travel and studying other cultures are also strong urges of hers.
She enjoys philosophical speculation and theorizing about abstract ideas and concepts. Zeta Jones is interested in the broad view, universal principles and systems, seeing connecting relationships and patterns, and seeing the whole picture rather than its component parts. Catherine Zeta-Jones has a great respect and thirst for knowledge and education, and is the proverbial "perpetual student". Catherine Zeta-Jones also has a talent for teaching and sharing her knowledge, and as a teacher Catherine presents herself as a fellow participant in the ongoing quest for understanding rather than as an authority.
She may become involved in television, publishing, or other fields that involve sharing ideas with large groups of people. Catherine Zeta-Jones excels in areas that require long-range planning and foresight, and can therefore be very successful in business, but she is rather sloppy and haphazard when it comes to implementing her ideas in a concrete way. Catherine Zeta-Jones should leave it to someone else to take care of the details. Travel or long-distance contacts and communications will play a large role in Zeta Jones' life and work.
Although broad-minded and interested in the philosophical or long-range implications of any plan (as mentioned earlier), Zeta Jones' mind is clear and practical as well. Her wide-ranging ideas and interests are grounded by a sense of realism and order. At times Catherine Zeta-Jones may seesaw between her optimism and sense of larger possibilities, and her skepticism and need for facts and tangible proof.
Catherine Zeta-Jones has a deep, serious turn of mind, and when out of balance, she tends toward pessimism, cynicism, and overly rigid or judgmental thinking. These are tendencies Zeta Jones may have to work to counteract, by choosing to focus on the humor in a situation, associating with cheerful, positive-minded people, and so on. Being around children can sometimes alter and lighten up her mental outlook considerably. Duty, obligation, "should", and "ought to" may color Catherine's thinking too much.
