Behind Danes' proud and magnanimous demeanor (as described on the previous page) lays a real go-getter. Others feel that she is rather narcissistic. Claire Danes should strive to always be aware of others' needs and concerns to prove this criticism wrong!
She is a person who thrives on challenge, and she often feels that she must battle her way through life, relying on no one and nothing but her own strength, intelligence and courage. Claire Danes believes in being totally honest, true to herself and her own vision and convictions, even if it means standing alone. Honesty, integrity, personal honor and authenticity are Danes' gods, and she has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Claire Danes craves the freedom to do things in her own way, and she works very well independently. Cooperating with others or carrying out another's will is not her style. Claire likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Claire Danes loves action and if others are settling down into a nice, comfortable little rut, then she is always ready to stir things up, do something new, make changes and introduce some fresh blood. Routine and sameness are tantamount to death for her. She is not afraid of trying something that has never been done before, and even though she may sometimes be perceived as a fool, Claire Danes also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following her own star are the breath of life for Danes, and she wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if she cannot do this.
She is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Claire Danes believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and she perceives herself as a strong, even invincible, person. Claire Danes hates being ill or in a position of dependency. Accepting her own human limitations and emotional needs is often difficult for her.
She is basically aggressive in her attitudes and less adept at relating to others, picking up on subtle messages and nuances, listening, nurturing and harmonizing. She is often so fired up about her own projects or goals that she inadvertently runs over or ignores other people's feelings and interests. Being receptive and appreciative of others' contributions, ideas and feelings would be highly instrumental in improving Danes' relationships. Her impatience to get on with things causes Claire Danes to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. She also frequently tries to accomplish her goals through anger or temper tantrums. Claire Danes would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however her energetic, restless nature rarely allows Claire Danes to do so.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand her intellectual horizons and broaden her understanding of the world are very attractive to Danes.
Claire Danes has a philosophical turn of mind and is concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting the overview of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy her mind much of the time.
Her conscious intentions and goals are frequently opposed by her unconscious beliefs and desires. If Claire Danes overrides her instincts and emotions because they seem to lead her in a direction diametrically opposed to the one she consciously desires, her emotions can become unruly. Poor relationships with women and/or difficulties in close one-on-one relationships are also a reflection of this tendency. However, if Claire Danes attends to her emotional urges and feelings and listens to the voice of her intuition, dreams and gut feelings, she will derive greater satisfaction from a more balanced life.
At times Claire Danes may feel an uncontrollable urge to radically alter her direction in life, or to act in ways that seem eccentric or at least highly uncharacteristic of her. When her life is becoming too predictable, Claire may do something to upset the status quo, sometimes without realizing why or how she is doing this. These impulses may seem at odds with her conscious intent and desires for herself, and can be unsettling. However, there is a streak of unconventionality and creative genius in Claire Danes which needs to be expressed now and then.
She is imaginative and sensitive to anything colorful, beautiful or magical. She is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, music and mysticism. Her spiritual values color Claire's whole perspective and approach to life. She is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
She is infused with a sense of personal destiny or mission and can be extremely driven, obsessed and fanatical. Learning about power and how to use it effectively is definitely on her agenda. Claire Danes confronts abusive power, tyranny and dominating people who will teach her about power and eventually force Danes to claim her own.
Her emotions are very intense and Claire Danes 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.
