Although Love may seem quite poised, even-tempered, balanced and harmonious (as mentioned in the previous chapter), she is actually rather moody and emotional. Inside, she is much more subjective and biased in her attitudes than her fair-minded, reasonable demeanor may imply.
Courtney has powerful emotional attachments to the past, her family, her childhood, places she associates with safety and security, and her beginnings. It is very important to Love to maintain a connection with her roots and heritage and keep family bonds strong. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, Love tends to cling to whatever is dear to her - be it a person, a familiar place, or a cherished possession.
She is sympathetic, nurturing, supportive and very sensitive to the emotional needs of other people. Courtney likes to be needed and to care for others, and she often worries about the people she loves. Courtney Love has a very strong need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, and much of her life centers on her home. She is more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society. Kindness, consideration and tenderness are more meaningful to Courtney Love than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
She is primarily emotional and her views are often dominated by her feelings and her own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic or abstract principles. It is difficult for her to judge situations fairly and objectively because her personal sympathies and loyalties usually factor in. Courtney Love takes things very personally and sometimes builds a wall around herself to shield herself from pain and rejection. Courtney Love feels rather shy and vulnerable at heart. She also tends to be moody and experiences frequent mood swings. Courtney Love needs to have a place and time in her life to withdraw, introspect, dream and replenish herself; otherwise Courtney Love becomes cranky and unhappy with those around her.
Courtney Love functions in an instinctive, irrational manner and likes to immerse herself in creative activities where she can express her feelings, imagination and instincts. Love often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Courtney Love also has a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
Her compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are Love's strong points. Her faults include an inability to let go of the past and move forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency for self-pity when facing hardship.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand her intellectual horizons and broaden her understanding of the world are very attractive to Love.
Courtney Love 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.
The above description of Courtney Love is so deeply ingrained that she has little objectivity and often little appreciation for other, different ways of approaching life. Courtney Love tends to be one-sided. There is little ambiguity in her makeup and she generally knows what she wants and what will make her happy.
Her life is apt to be blessed with more than her share of helpful friends, fortuitous relationships, and doors opening to her at just the right time. Because Courtney Love is usually willing to share and to give back to others in a generous way, she continues to generate successes in her life no matter how unfortunate prevailing circumstances are. Courtney should beware, however, of becoming an opportunist.
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 Courtney's whole perspective and approach to life. She is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
Courtney Love has a strong need for intellectual relationships and associations and she likes to share her intellectual interests with others. This could be in meetings or by joining various clubs and organizations.
