Although Elizabeth Berkley appears quite pleasant, agreeable and prepared to compromise for the sake of harmony (as described on the previous page), she also has a strong need to shine and express her own opinions. Elizabeth has the potential to be a great leader, manager, coach or teacher.
Proud and intensely individual, Elizabeth Berkley 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". Elizabeth Berkley must put her personal stamp on whatever she does, and direct her own course in life. Elizabeth Berkley needs to have a place where she can shine, express herself creatively, and be the one in charge.
Elizabeth has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. Elizabeth Berkley also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Elizabeth Berkley, 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. Elizabeth 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 Berkley 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.
Elizabeth Berkley also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person she loves feel special. Elizabeth Berkley 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, Elizabeth Berkley likes to be the strong one in her relationships and she really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, Elizabeth needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as she is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with her.
Berkley'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.
Her career, reputation, and public image are very important to Berkley. Elizabeth Berkley 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. Elizabeth Berkley may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
There is an ongoing, subtle conflict within Elizabeth Berkley, 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 Elizabeth 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 Elizabeth Berkley is denying or suppressing the messages from her subconscious or emotional self.
Ideally, Elizabeth Berkley will learn to accept the two quite different aspects of her and to express both of them. If she cannot do this, Berkley 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.)
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 Elizabeth's whole perspective and approach to life. She is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
