Dorothy Dandridge's fundamental needs, values, and orientation towards life are symbolized by the four astrological elements. Each person has their own unique balance of these four basic energies: fire (warmth, inspiration, enthusiasm), earth (practicality, realism, material interests), air (social and intellectual qualities), and water (emotional needs and feelings).
Dandridge's "elemental make-up" is described below. Remember that most people are "unbalanced" or lopsided, and if Dorothy is lacking or deficient in a certain element (or elements), it simply means that she needs to consciously develop that particular aspect in order to appreciate and/or work harder in that dimension of life.
Sometimes we overestimate the element that we are least endowed with, sensing it as a lack within ourselves, but more often we neglect or ignore it. The qualities described below will be reiterated and explained in more detail in the following pages.
Finding her life's work - a concrete means of self-expression - and discovering her place in the world is one of her fundamental challenges. Dorothy Dandridge tends to feel out of place in the world, with no solid sense of security. Dorothy Dandridge often lives in the private world of her imagination and though she may have a very rich inner life, Dandridge has the tendency to avoid doing anything productive with it. The more prosaic, material side of life either baffles or disinterests her, yet Dorothy needs to develop this side of herself.
Constancy, patience, and practicality are qualities that Dandridge needs to cultivate.
Fortunately, as you will read in the next chapter, Dorothy Dandridge does have an active, spirited way of expressing herself, which helps her overcome her tendency towards indolence. She picks herself up and keeps going after being emotionally bruised. She is a survivor. Dorothy Dandridge can become very angry when frustrated, so she should try and find ways to vent anger when necessary.
