Glenn Close is actually a more sensitive, vulnerable and compassionate person than her proud and somewhat vain manner (described in the previous chapter) would suggest. Although she maintains a strong, confident facade, she is actually quite soft, understanding and caring.
At heart she is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of her imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Glenn Close 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 Close may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Glenn Close usually keeps to herself.
Glenn 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. Glenn has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and she often feels the pain of others as if it were her own. Glenn Close 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, Close 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. Glenn 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. Close will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Close tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. She is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Glenn Close 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. Glenn Close 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 Close more than it bothers her.
Glenn Close craves intense experiences and is attracted to aspects of life that are strange, unfathomable or taboo. Glenn may hide her interests or inclinations, except from those who know her very intimately. Glenn Close is rarely content with herself and her life, and she has an inner urge to continually delve deeper than ever before. Glenn is also highly interested in social power and the role that money and economics play in people's lives.
Glenn has lofty aspirations but does not struggle or labor to achieve them. Her self-confidence and inner harmony attract success and benefit her in an almost magical way. Her optimism and cheerful generosity also win Close many allies and successes in life.
However she also has a more somber side, which keeps Close's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Glenn Close tends to seesaw between her faith, vision and high aspirations, and her caution and realism (or fear!). She cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and she accepts the need for hard work. Her skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
Realistic and practical, Glenn Close sets goals for herself that are modest enough for her to actually achieve. She is able to tackle long, difficult projects and see them through, for Close possesses self-discipline, concentration and perseverance. Glenn Close also has a strong sense of responsibility and is very conscientious about fulfilling her obligations. Close often does things because she feels it is expected of her.
Her emotions are in tune with her intentions and Glenn Close goes about her business with complete oneness. Glenn Close has a positive attitude towards life and a high spirit of enterprise. There could be a strong tie between Glenn and her mother or her wife.
She may lack direction and drive and tends to compare herself unfavorably to others. Close alternates between caution and unrealistic expectations and lets others expect too much of her. But Glenn Close plods forward steadily, reaching success later in life.
