Claudia Cardinale's fundamental needs, values, and orientation towards life are symbolized by the four astrological elements. Each person has their own unique balance of these four basic energies: fire (warmth, inspiration, enthusiasm), earth (practicality, realism, material interests), air (social and intellectual qualities), and water (emotional needs and feelings).
Cardinale's "elemental make-up" is described below. Remember that most people are "unbalanced" or lopsided, and if Claudia is lacking or deficient in a certain element (or elements), it simply means that she needs to consciously develop that particular aspect in order to appreciate and/or work harder in that dimension of life.
Sometimes we overestimate the element that we are least endowed with, sensing it as a lack within ourselves, but more often we neglect or ignore it. The qualities described below will be reiterated and explained in more detail in the following pages.
She is a very stable individual, and can be incredibly stubborn with very little appreciation for those whose opinions, experiences, or approach toward life differ from her own. Claudia Cardinale does not readily adjust to unfamiliar social situations, new ideas, or different types of people, and thus she can be rather narrow-minded in her understanding and experience of life.
As an extremely pragmatic person, Claudia is not interested in knowledge or concepts for their own sake. Claudia Cardinale values practical skills and knowledge over abstract ideas, and she may look down on people who are "too intellectual" or "live in their heads", while at the same time feel intellectually inferior to them.
Learning to be more flexible would be of great benefit to Claudia, for she is prone to be rather rigid in both body and mind, especially as the years go by.
As we shall see in Chapter 3, Claudia Cardinale also has a fiery, energetic side, which provides balance and the opportunity for Claudia to apply her practical nature in creative, interesting ways. Sometimes, however, her very sensible, realistic, practical ways prevent Claudia Cardinale from expressing the energy and wild dreams burning inside.
