Coretta Scott King
drive and ambition
Coretta Scott King avoids direct confrontation as much as possible and is uncomfortable with aggressiveness, competition and personal power. Her ego drive is not very dominant and King is not especially ambitious or eager to push her way to the top. She may feel inadequate in situations that call for strong, forceful action. The only instance in which Coretta Scott King will really fight is when she senses that her loved ones - or something dear to him- are being jeopardized, in which case she is a fierce defender. Coretta Scott King has a very strong protective side. She acts on impulse and instinct and may lash out at anyone she perceives as threatening to Coretta's home or family. However, Coretta Scott King will rarely initiate a confrontation. Her goals also tend to be very personal and centered on family closeness and inner satisfaction rather than worldly achievement.
She is sensitive to stress and does not handle a high-pressured, competitive atmosphere very well. Coretta Scott King is very touchy, irritable and difficult to live with when there are many demands or stressful situations at work. Her energy level varies and is very dependent on the emotional harmony (or lack thereof) in her home. A supportive partner is very instrumental in helping King to achieve her goals and desires.
She has passionate convictions and will fight for them when challenged. Coretta Scott King is willing to dedicate a great deal of her energy and strength to an important cause, and she will act decisively on her beliefs, rather than simply espousing them.
Sometimes King gets so involved, and identifies so much, with her ideas that she cannot really be receptive to anyone who opposes her philosophically.
King frequently meets a tremendous amount of resistance whenever she wants to assert herself in a decisive way or do something just for herself. This resistance stems from within (in the form of self-doubt, fear, or a heavy sense of responsibility toward others), as well as from practical and circumstantial limitations. Especially when initiating a project or acting independently, Coretta Scott King may tell herself that she is not really prepared, or that she is not good enough (yet), and she puts a lot of pressure on herself. Despite the obstacles, setbacks or lack of support she encounters, Coretta Scott King can accomplish a great deal with patience and perseverance. However, she is apt to aim too low and not realize how much she is truly capable of.
Coretta Scott King should try to recognize that she does not have to justify her existence or prove her worth through her accomplishments.
Although she is patient and steady when pursuing an objective, when Coretta Scott King finally loses patience she loses it completely! In addition to having great tenacity and perseverance, Coretta has a daring and rebellious side as well:
Intensely restless, dynamic and energetic, she is always on the go. When Coretta Scott King wants something, she wants it NOW, and she acts decisively and impulsively, albeit sometimes hastily and prematurely. Impatient, high-strung, and often nervous and tense, Coretta finds it difficult to slow down, pace herself or relax. She is fiercely individualistic and independent, self-willed and intolerant of restraints and restrictions imposed by others. Coretta Scott King has a reckless disregard for authority and can be extremely rebellious. Cooperating with others is not King's strong point! She is often brutally frank and abrupt with people, and can be quite impersonal when she is pursuing a desired goal. She may demonstrate an explosive temper when her will is blocked. Coretta Scott King has a superabundance of energy and she needs a great deal of personal freedom to do things in her own style and at her own pace.
She is inclined to be a tyrant and wants other people to submit to her wishes. In Coretta's drive to gain power, she could be ruthless and brutal at times. On the other hand, Coretta Scott King may have to struggle to resist being placed in someone else's hand and power.

Coretta Scott King has a powerful drive for achievement and a penchant for athletics or some other very vigorous, challenging career. She is apt to push herself very hard, trying to outdo the competition. When possible, King likes to work independently, blazing trails for others to follow. Impatience, recklessness, or an overly ego-centered approach to success could be her downfall. (Knowing Coretta Scott King, however, she is likely to get right back on her feet!)
In her professional life, Coretta Scott King is likely to earn a great deal of recognition and success.

Achieving her ambitions and long-range goals will require much stamina and self-reliance as well as a clearly defined strategy. Numerous setbacks, obstructions or delays can also be expected.
