For Columba Bush, 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. Columba 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.

Columba Bush 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, Columba Bush likes to be the strong one in her relationships and she really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, Columba needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as she is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with her.
Bush'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.

Columba Bush often feels that she is at cross purposes with herself, for her conscious intentions and desires conflict with her subconscious emotional needs and drives. She is torn in two different directions. Columba has difficulty satisfying both her need to be an individual and her need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Columba sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to her or what Columba really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.

However she also has a more somber side, which keeps Bush's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown.

Inwardly she is zealous and fanatical, though she may hide her personal desires and intentions, as well as the intensity of her feelings.
