Although Clara Bow appears to be unselfish, gentle and somewhat passive (as described on the previous page), Bow really has a strong sense of herself and is a much more dominant individual than she seems to be initially. Clara Bow also craves personal glory and acclaim much more than she first lets on. She may feel torn, at times, between taking care of herself and giving to others.
Proud and intensely individual, Clara Bow really wants to stand out, to be the very best she can be, and to be recognized and appreciated for her unique contributions. Doing something well and being respected for it is extremely important to her, and she cannot tolerate being relegated to the background, taking orders from others, or being "just one of the team". Clara Bow must put her personal stamp on whatever she does, and direct her own course in life. Clara Bow needs to have a place where she can shine, express herself creatively, and be the one in charge.
Clara has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. Clara Bow also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Clara Bow, it is true that "the entire world's a stage" and she secretly (or perhaps not so secretly) desires to be the star or hero of the play. Clara wants to be great and to receive the love and applause of an adoring audience, even if the "audience" is just one other special person. She needs someone to believe in her and her dreams. Though Bow appears radiantly self-confident and independent, she is actually very dependent on the affirmation, love and recognition of others. She cannot bear going unnoticed or unappreciated.
Clara Bow also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person she loves feel special. Clara Bow loves the magic of "being in love" and knows how to keep the romance alive in her relationships. She is also immensely loyal and will defend her loved ones and stand by them to the end - as long as they never offend her pride or betray her trust. However, Clara Bow likes to be the strong one in her relationships and she really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, Clara needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as she is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with her.
Bow's strengths are her zest and love for life, her creative power and her warm and generous heart. Her primary fault is her tendency to be very egocentric, and so concerned with the impression she is making and with her own creative self-expression that she forgets there is another, larger world that does not revolve around her.
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 Clara Bow's, and she is quite a perfectionist!
Bow can easily become overly identified or involved with the function she performs, with her work, or with her own health and "growth process".
Her mind is very active and her judgment usually is sound. Although Clara Bow's thinking is influenced by her feelings, she is inclined to think in realistic and practical terms. She is in control of her feelings and is able to express them rationally.
Clara Bow feels spiritually bonded with her friends, partners or associates. She is likely to have a good rapport and harmony in her relationships with the opposite sex and enjoys spending time with her partner.
She is very receptive and sensitive but has a tendency to over-idealize, making her approach to love relationships, romance or marriage somewhat unrealistic. Clara Bow also tends to be a bit absent-minded and naive, leaving herself open for being taken, swindled or lied to.
