Helena P. Blavatsky
As described in the previous chapter, Helena P. Blavatsky instinctively protects, nurtures and supports others, and as discussed below, she loves to be a leader. The combination of these two sides of Helena Blavatsky results in her being a good leader of her family, or any club or group to which she belongs. Helena P. Blavatsky treats people with a lot of personal attention and care and is appreciated as a result.
She also often takes things too personally and many times Helena P. Blavatsky thinks that things are directed at her personally when they are not.
Behind Helena Blavatsky's rather gentle, soft appearance she is very willful and stubborn, a surprise to people as they get to know her better.
Proud and intensely individual, Helena P. Blavatsky 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". Helena P. Blavatsky must put her personal stamp on whatever she does, and direct her own course in life. Helena P. Blavatsky needs to have a place where she can shine, express herself creatively, and be the one in charge.
Madame Blavatsky has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. Helena P. Blavatsky also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Helena P. Blavatsky, 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. Madame Blavatsky 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 Helena Blavatsky 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.
Helena P. Blavatsky also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person she loves feel special. Helena P. Blavatsky 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, Helena P. Blavatsky likes to be the strong one in her relationships and she really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, Madame Blavatsky needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as she is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with her.
Helena Blavatsky'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.
Ownership gives Helena P. Blavatsky a sense of security, and she has a strong attachment to her possessions. Madame Blavatsky also has a natural instinct or understanding of economics, finance, trade, and appraising the value of merchandise.
Helena P. Blavatsky aims high, dreams big, and has a tremendous sense of what she is capable of achieving. Overconfidence, grandiosity, lack of humility and/or extreme discontent in modest circumstances may be her faults. Generally, however, Helena Blavatsky's great expectations and enterprising spirit lead to success. Business, especially when there is an element of risk and speculation involved, is ideally suited to Madame Blavatsky.
