Behind Ricci's quiet, unassuming and cautious front (described in the previous chapter) lies a much more unconventional, liberal-thinking, freedom-loving soul, described below.
She is a freedom-loving, strong-willed and independent-minded individual, and she insists upon living her own life as she sees fit, even if it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, Christina Ricci cannot be owned or possessed, and while she is willing to share herself with another, she does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, Ricci can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Christina has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and she tries to abide by them; however, her ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. Christina Ricci probably dislikes sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
She is fair, intelligent, objective and rational and she often let her head rule rather than her heart. Christina Ricci seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because she is capable of putting aside her personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Christina makes up her mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade her, and she can be rather dogmatic.
Christina Ricci thinks in broad terms and is concerned with the world beyond her own personal sphere - her town, nation, or even planet. She is likely to become involved in, or show a keen interest in, community endeavors, social organizations and groups of all kinds. She enjoys being part of a group endeavor, and she often assumes the role of organizing, managing or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, she harbors great hopes for the future. Christina Ricci stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Christina Ricci was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Christina has an experimental mind and is attracted to novelty.
Her strong points include her concern for human welfare and social betterment, her sense of fairness and democratic spirit, and her vision. Her faults are her stubbornness and inflexibility, and a tendency to be very obtuse and insensitive when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
Her energies are directed to either perfecting her techniques, skills, and abilities in work, or in "perfecting", refining, and improving herself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. The urge to bring about a state of wholeness or optimal functioning is a strong motivation of Christina Ricci's, and she is quite a perfectionist!
Ricci can easily become overly identified or involved with the function she performs, with her work, or with her own health and "growth process".
Christina has to overcome considerable hardship in order to fulfill her personal destiny. However, she does have the strength and stamina necessary to do so. Support and helpful guidance from her father or other significant men in her life may well be lacking. In fact, their disapproval of Christina and their harsh criticism are apt to be two of her greatest handicaps, and at times she may feel quite discouraged and alone. But true self-reliance and a solid sense of her own powers may well be the silver lining to that cloud in her life. Christina Ricci needs to learn to follow her own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what her critics or the authorities say.
Although she takes herself and her responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of Christina Ricci that rebels against rules and restrictions and the need to contend with outside authority. Ricci can feel torn between conforming to the rules or fulfilling her obligations, and breaking free of them. Her wilder side will now be described.
Impulsive, restless and spontaneous, her life is apt to be somewhat unstable and full of sudden changes. Christina Ricci is extremely independent and craves excitement, adventure, freedom and discovery. Ricci has a rebellious streak and she often feels she is unusual and different from society's mainstream. The unorthodox and the novel appeal to her.
While she is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Christina Ricci also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
She is very open and receptive to the spiritual, intangible, and subtle realms, and can easily receive or give conscious guidance based on her inner attunement. Christina Ricci takes many things for granted, such as the existence of an afterlife or the effects of subtle influences like aromatherapy, spiritual healing, etc. These things seem obvious to Christina, whereas to many people they are a matter of conjecture or even illusory. Christina Ricci may not realize she has spiritual gifts because they come so naturally to her.
Christina Ricci deeply believes in her own power and her ability to survive any change and emerge victorious from any difficulty. Christina 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. Christina likes to live intensely and has no respect for people who are weak or avoid confronting life and their own destiny.
