Though Isabelle Eberhardt seems steady and down-to-earth (as mentioned in the previous chapter), she is also quite idealistic, as described below. She may sometimes feel torn between maintaining stability and the status quo versus experimenting with the unconventional and stirring up change. Isabelle Eberhardt has a keen business sense and is very effective in any organization or large business.
She is a freedom-loving, strong-willed and independent-minded individual, and she insists upon living her own life as she sees fit, even if it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, Isabelle Eberhardt cannot be owned or possessed, and while she is willing to share herself with another, she does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, Eberhardt can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Isabelle has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and she tries to abide by them; however, her ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. Isabelle Eberhardt probably dislikes sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
She is fair, intelligent, objective and rational and she often let her head rule rather than her heart. Isabelle Eberhardt seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because she is capable of putting aside her personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Isabelle makes up her mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade her, and she can be rather dogmatic.
Isabelle Eberhardt thinks in broad terms and is concerned with the world beyond her own personal sphere - her town, nation, or even planet. She is likely to become involved in, or show a keen interest in, community endeavors, social organizations and groups of all kinds. She enjoys being part of a group endeavor, and she often assumes the role of organizing, managing or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, she harbors great hopes for the future. Isabelle Eberhardt stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Isabelle Eberhardt was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Isabelle has an experimental mind and is attracted to novelty.
Her strong points include her concern for human welfare and social betterment, her sense of fairness and democratic spirit, and her vision. Her faults are her stubbornness and inflexibility, and a tendency to be very obtuse and insensitive when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
Leading groups and classes, and being involved in community efforts, social activities, events or movements are areas where Isabelle Eberhardt really shines and expresses her creativity. An awareness of politics or the larger social impact of individual actions is natural to her.
Her life is apt to be blessed with more than her share of helpful friends, fortuitous relationships, and doors opening to her at just the right time. Because Isabelle Eberhardt is usually willing to share and to give back to others in a generous way, she continues to generate successes in her life no matter how unfortunate prevailing circumstances are. Isabelle should beware, however, of becoming an opportunist.
She is very open and receptive to the spiritual, intangible, and subtle realms, and can easily receive or give conscious guidance based on her inner attunement. Isabelle Eberhardt takes many things for granted, such as the existence of an afterlife or the effects of subtle influences like aromatherapy, spiritual healing, etc. These things seem obvious to Isabelle, whereas to many people they are a matter of conjecture or even illusory. Isabelle Eberhardt may not realize she has spiritual gifts because they come so naturally to her.
Her vitality is not up to par and her will-power a bit weak, making Isabelle Eberhardt vulnerable to swindle or deceit. Her inner discontent and casual attitude could easily lead Eberhardt into dubious schemes. Isabelle should refrain from any activity that seems to be subversive.
