In addition to Holly's strong personal loyalties and the devotion she feels for her nearest and dearest relations (as described on the previous page), Holly Hunter has great compassion and sensitivity toward people in all walks of life. Holly Hunter has a gift for understanding and appreciating a wide variety of art and life styles.
Moreover, Hunter should be careful not to be taken advantage of by others. Her good heart and innocent, unsuspecting attitude can make Holly Hunter a victim of others' greed. If this happens, Holly needs to avoid becoming bitter and resentful about life, and instead, to allow her great compassion and sensitivity to blossom and shine, rather than be dimmed by a few mistakes.
At heart she is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of her imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Holly Hunter 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 Hunter may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Holly Hunter usually keeps to herself.
Holly 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. Holly has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and she often feels the pain of others as if it were her own. Holly Hunter 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, Hunter 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. Holly 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. Hunter will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Hunter tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. She is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Holly Hunter 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. Holly Hunter 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 Hunter more than it bothers her.
Her career, reputation, and public image are very important to Hunter. Holly Hunter has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy her; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Holly Hunter may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
The above description of Holly Hunter is so deeply ingrained that she has little objectivity and often little appreciation for other, different ways of approaching life. Holly Hunter tends to be one-sided. There is little ambiguity in her makeup and she generally knows what she wants and what will make her happy.
Hunter can be an inspiring leader of a team or group effort. Her dynamism and energy evokes the same in others, and she sees healthy competition between people as a plus. Generally, Holly Hunter enjoys fine health as well.
Hunter occasionally gamble, splurge, or overextend herself in ways that may be quite at odds with her usual way of doing things. Exaggerating her accomplishments or spending too much in order to impress others and build up her own self-esteem can be a problem. However, Holly Hunter also has faith and an optimistic side, which enable her to recover from the negative consequences of her excesses, and to learn from them.
While Holly Hunter 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!).
However she also has a more somber side, which keeps Hunter's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Holly Hunter 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.
She is often plagued by feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions and self-doubt. Holly Hunter has a cautious, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to her obligations and duties. Holly Hunter tends to work and struggle more than necessary and to take herself too seriously.
She is apt to be a fanatic in some way, and cannot go halfway in anything she does. Her extremism may seem (and actually be) obsessive and somewhat blind. That is, Holly Hunter does not always consciously understand why she feels as driven or intense about a given course of action as she does. There is a strong element of fate or inevitability in Hunter's life. A significant death or loss in her close relationships is apt to profoundly influence Holly Hunter and shape important decisions in her life, and she may consciously seek out intense, life-or-death experiences as well.
Hunter is capable of extraordinary physical or mental efforts to gain success and achieve something that will bring her recognition and respect. Holly Hunter has a strong need for authority and power over others and is likely to perform better in a leading position.
She is well aware of her limitations and has a strong desire to go her own way in life. There is a note of gravity to Holly's personality and she appears somewhat somber. It is not easy for Holly Hunter to relax and enjoy and she prefers to work in seclusion.
Holly Hunter tends to impose her will upon others in a rather ruthless way, but on the other hand she may also be imposed upon by others. Holly feels a constant need to fight for leadership and has a great desire to become a public figure.
