Behind Fanning's rather lighthearted, witty and restless demeanor described in the previous chapter, lies a sensitive, poetic soul. Dakota Fanning may cover up her sensitivity with light banter and cleverness - or she may use her verbal and communication skills to express her imagination, kindness and refined sensitivity.
At heart she is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of her imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Dakota Fanning as anything in the outer world, though she may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting her inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, she has a rich inner life, though Fanning may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Dakota Fanning usually keeps to herself.
Dakota shows great sensitivity and empathy toward others and often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. She is tolerant, forgiving and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. Dakota has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and she often feels the pain of others as if it were her own. Dakota Fanning sympathizes with the needy, the disadvantaged and the misfits of society. She is capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker or minister. However, Fanning tends to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of her kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon her. Dakota has little sense of boundaries, or of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not her strong points.
She is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and she tries to avoid open conflict. Fanning will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Fanning tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. She is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Dakota Fanning does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
Her gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for she possesses great sensitivity, inspiration and limitless imagination. Dakota Fanning has a strong affinity for beauty and love.
Her faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than take strong, definite action to change her life for the better. She also tends to become so detached from her immediate environment that she lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around Fanning more than it bothers her.
Her career, reputation, and public image are very important to Fanning. Dakota Fanning has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy her; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Dakota Fanning may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
There is an ongoing, subtle conflict within Dakota Fanning, between her conscious attitudes and aspirations, and her deeper emotional and subconscious beliefs, needs, and feelings. This creates considerable inner stress and sometimes paralyzing indecision, mostly due to the fact that Dakota may be trying to follow a path that is at odds with her subconscious desires. Chronic tightness or tension in her body may well be a signal that Dakota Fanning is denying or suppressing the messages from her subconscious or emotional self.
Ideally, Dakota Fanning will learn to accept the two quite different aspects of her and to express both of them. If she cannot do this, Fanning is apt to attract many relationships into her life with people who reflect her denied or repressed qualities, and who seem to make her life difficult. (Read also chapter 4 in order to get a better picture of the duality described here.)
Dakota Fanning has a mature and often somber demeanor. She is serious, reserved, self-disciplined, highly responsible and conscientious. She progresses rather slowly in life, through her own efforts and persistence. She is also rather stern and judgmental, especially with herself. Cautious and careful, it is difficult for her to really let go, be spontaneous and playful. Dakota likes to be in control of herself.
Fanning always seems to find the right words to verbalize her feelings, especially in regard to love and friendship. Dakota Fanning also has a keen sense of beauty and she probably appreciates art, music or poetry.
Dakota Fanning has a powerful personality and a tendency to run roughshod over others. Dakota tends to inflict her will on them whether or not they are receptive. She is likely to gain respect from others through the demonstration of physical strength and bravery.
Dakota Fanning loves to entertain and likes to cultivate social contacts. She enjoys forming close personal relationships with others and most of them should be harmonious. Dakota prefers teamwork rather than separate efforts to realize her goals.
