While Christina Rossetti usually comes across a tactful and diplomatic (as described on the previous page), she can also be surprisingly blunt and direct, especially when people get to know her better. Perhaps Christina's gift is to say very honest and candid things in a way that will not alienate people. Alternatively, she may vacillate between being gracious and "telling it like it is".
She is a gambler and an adventurer at heart, one who loves to take risks, to discover and explore new worlds, and to travel the untried path rather than the safe, reliable one. She is independent, freedom loving, and often very restless. She needs a lifestyle that provides opportunities for travel, movement, change, and meeting new people. A steady routine, which offers much in the way of security but little in the way of space and freedom, is odious to her.
To Christina Rossetti, life is a journey and an adventure that is endlessly interesting and rich with possibilities, and it may be difficult for her to decide where to focus her attention and efforts. Christina Rossetti probably traveled around and experimented with many different paths before she settled on a particular career. Or she may go from one project to the next, for once the challenge and vital interest is gone, she is very quick to move on. Commitment, discipline, focus and concentration are not her strong points. Rossetti can be irresponsible and disinclined to take on the burdens and limitations of adult life.
An incurable optimist, she has big dreams, aspirations and hopes for the future and is usually engaged in pursuing a far-off goal. Christina Rossetti has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush her spirit. Rossetti always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Christina Rossetti has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and she is philosophical about her mistakes. Christina has the ability to sense future trends, to see the big picture, and she likes to theorize and speculate. However, she gets annoyed with all the details and practical requirements required to implement her theories.
Rossetti expresses herself in a very open, direct and straightforward manner and is often blunt and tactless as well. Because she does not take herself too seriously, she may not realize how deeply her candid statements can wound more sensitive souls. In fact, though she may not realize it, Christina's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of her worst faults.
Christina Rossetti enjoys being in close relationships but also needs freedom and she does not do well with a possessive, clinging, or emotionally demanding partner. She is quite generous, and heartily dislikes pettiness in others. Someone who shares her ideals, her sense of fun and her zest for life would be the right companion for Rossetti.
Ownership gives Christina Rossetti a sense of security, and she has a strong attachment to her possessions. Christina also has a natural instinct or understanding of economics, finance, trade, and appraising the value of merchandise.
Christina Rossetti tends to see things from her perspective only and to be rather subjective. She also enjoys talking and expressing her views but does not always listen as well. Christina Rossetti has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Christina Rossetti is loving and well loved by others, and has a strong need for relationships that offer kindness, friendship and affection. Her artistic and creative powers are also well developed and Christina does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Rossetti, as are her personal appearance and attractiveness.
Christina Rossetti 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.
Her emotions are very intense and Christina Rossetti is excited quite easily. Love is very important to her and she is constantly seeking emotional fulfillment, but she will not waste time with casual relationships.
