drive and ambition
Once Gertrude Lawrence sets her mind on a goal, her dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Lawrence pursues her ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Gertrude labors patiently and steadfastly until she achieves what she wants - or until it is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that all is lost. She is a reliable, consistent and productive worker, and she often shoulders more of the workload than her co-workers, usually without complaint. She often ends up with the nitty-gritty work. She prefers a regular routine, with definite hours and clearly defined responsibilities and tasks. In fact, establishing a pattern or routine is very important to her success because once she gets started in a certain direction, it is easy for Gertrude Lawrence to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Gertrude Lawrence has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for her to overcome before Lawrence gets going; but once she gets a momentum going, her energy level is strong and steady.
She is interested in concrete results and solid, practical achievements. Gertrude Lawrence needs to have some tangible product or contribution to show for her efforts, and cannot be content with only intangible rewards (such as having a good time, learning, or spiritual enrichment). Material well-being and security is also a large factor in determining what she does. Gertrude's stamina and persistence are her greatest assets, but they can also work against her; she can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Gertrude Lawrence also tends to play it safe, and to limit herself as a result.
She has passionate convictions and will fight for them when challenged. Gertrude Lawrence is willing to dedicate a great deal of her energy and force to an important cause, and she will act decisively on her beliefs, rather than simply espousing them.
Sometimes Lawrence gets so involved and identified with her ideas that she cannot really be receptive to anyone who opposes her philosophically.
Gertrude Lawrence has a desire to accomplish projects with others for the good of all. Gertrude could form associations or groups of people where she can further the pursuit of mutual objectives. Her achievements are likely to generate prestige for Lawrence.
Her attunement to the intangible or unseen world is very strong. Thus, Gertrude's drive and ambitions in life are apt to be colored by her subtle awareness, her mystical or intuitive sensitivity. Imagination, "make believe", creative fantasy, and the ability to visualize may be aspects of her career, also. Gertrude Lawrence has the ability to "channel" healing or inspirational messages.
Gertrude has an extraordinary drive for power and influence in the world, which can be used for good or ill, for her own personal aggrandizement or for achieving some wider aim.
Gertrude Lawrence could be a channel for healing, transforming, revivifying energies in society or in individuals. Her work will involve stimulating deep, fundamental changes and bringing to light hidden, taboo, repressed, or secret information and knowledge.
Her career is apt to involve beauty, adornment, the arts, or entertainment. Her personal charm and appeal are significant factors in her profession, as well. Gertrude Lawrence is very good at selling and promoting - whether it is herself, or her product or company.
Often Gertrude Lawrence feels like she is being pulled in two directions - what she needs to do to fulfill her long-range ambitions, and what she actually feels like doing. This may make it difficult for Gertrude to be constant and consistent in pursuing goals, career aims, etc.
Relationships with women, trying to satisfy family needs, or other emotional attachments sometimes also conflict. Often Gertrude Lawrence has to decide on one or another at a given time, rather than try to have both.
