Dolores del Río
Although Dolores del Río appears to be modest and shy (as described on the previous page), at heart she has a strong need to shine and be the center of attention. She is very self-conscious and self-critical however, and she often shies away from the limelight. Her dilemma lies in the fact that she wants to take center stage, but doubts her abilities. Dolores del Río needs to avoid being overly critical of herself and to practice hard at whatever she does so that she feels fully confident.
Proud and intensely individual, Dolores del Río really wants to stand out, to be the very best she can be, and to be recognized and appreciated for her unique contributions. Doing something well and being respected for it is extremely important to her, and she cannot tolerate being relegated to the background, taking orders from others, or being "just one of the team". Dolores del Río must put her personal stamp on whatever she does, and direct her own course in life. Dolores del Río needs to have a place where she can shine, express herself creatively, and be the one in charge.
Dolores has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. Dolores del Río also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Dolores del Río, 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. Dolores 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. Though del Río appears radiantly self-confident and independent, she is actually very dependent on the affirmation, love and recognition of others. She cannot bear going unnoticed or unappreciated.
Dolores del Río also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person she loves feel special. Dolores del Río 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, Dolores del Río likes to be the strong one in her relationships and she really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, Dolores needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as she is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with her.
del Río'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.
Dolores del Río tends to get involved in the helping professions or in activities where her efforts are hidden, behind the scenes, unacknowledged, or unknown to the public. Asserting herself or getting up in front of an audience may be exceedingly uncomfortable for del Río.
Emotionally, it could be difficult for Dolores del Río to discern illusion from reality. She is impressionable and sympathetic toward others. However, del Río tends to idealize others and could adopt a fantasy view of a wonderful marriage, causing disappointment later on.
