Behind Hawn's rather jovial, open, enthusiastic demeanor (as described on the previous page), there is a very different side to her - deeper, more serious, and more emotionally intense, as described below. Her optimism and idealism are tempered and balanced by a certain skepticism and a sense of the darker side of life and of people.
Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, she is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. Goldie Hawn is extremely sensitive but disinclined to show it, and she only allows a special few into her inner world. Like a wary animal, she is cautious and mistrustful of those she does not know until "he sniffs them out". She is highly instinctive and intuitive. Goldie Hawn usually has a strong, immediate gut reaction to people, even though she may be unable to clearly articulate why she feels the way she does. Her feelings and perceptions go deeper than words.
Goldie Hawn also has a powerful need for deep emotional relationships and she forms very intense love bonds and attachments. She is possessive and often jealous of anyone or anything that she perceives as a threat to her relationship with someone she loves. When Goldie Hawn commits herself to someone or something, she is wholeheartedly devoted and expects complete loyalty in return. Goldie merges with or "marries" the person she loves at a very deep level and therefore separations are extremely painful for her, and often stormy and nasty. When Hawn has been wounded, she is not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. Goldie will most certainly never forget the hurt and she often harbors grievances and resentment for a very long time. Forgiveness does not come easily to her.
Whatever she does, Goldie does with passion and fervor, and she often goes to extremes. Hawn can be hot or cold, but never lukewarm about anything. Hawn can also be very narrow-minded: either she is 100% involved in something or it does not exist for her at all. Rarely is Goldie Hawn emotionally detached and objective. She definitely has a fanatical streak. She is also immensely strong-willed and her tenacity in pursuing her objectives often borders on obsession. She is filled with fierce pride, courage and emotional strength.
Goldie Hawn loves mysteries and is deeply attracted to the hidden, dark, secret side of life. Goldie never takes things at face value and is always probing beneath the surface of people and situations to discover what is really going on. Goldie Hawn tends to be more of a cynic than an idealist.
Leading groups and classes, and being involved in community efforts, social activities, events or movements are areas where Goldie Hawn really shines and expresses her creativity. An awareness of politics or the larger social impact of individual actions is natural to her.
There is an ongoing, subtle conflict within Goldie Hawn, 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 Goldie 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 Goldie Hawn is denying or suppressing the messages from her subconscious or emotional self.
Ideally, Goldie Hawn will learn to accept the two quite different aspects of her and to express both of them. If she cannot do this, Hawn 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 a positive, vital, energetic and active go-getter. She enjoys competition, and her initiative and self-confidence make Goldie Hawn a winner.
While Goldie Hawn does have a strong drive, she frequently holds herself back. One of her challenges lies in learning to endure frustration and to patiently overcome the obstacles in her life (or her own internal caution and resistance!).
Realistic and practical, Goldie Hawn 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 Hawn possesses self-discipline, concentration and perseverance. Goldie Hawn also has a strong sense of responsibility and is very conscientious about fulfilling her obligations. Hawn often does things because she feels it is expected of her.
