Abounding in energy and enthusiasm at the start of a new venture, Gloria Steinem needs a very positive response and encouragement in order to sustain her interest throughout.

She has a strong desire to blaze new trails and put her own twist to things.

Remaining steady in the midst of crisis or sudden change is an aspect of this, as well as knowing when to wait and when to make necessary changes. Gloria's timing is usually good.
Her desire for a beautiful home, a comfortable, pleasing lifestyle, and time to relax and enjoy herself may well be the motivation for going out into the world and trying to achieve outward success.

She may have to overcome some significant handicap from her childhood or background in order to attain her ambitions in life.
