drive and ambition
Joplin is aspiring, enterprising and forever following a bright and distant star, planning some new venture or investigating new potential. She is definitely "upwardly mobile" in either a material or spiritual sense. Janis Joplin aims high and is not content with a mere quiet, secure existence. Janis likes to stretch her limits, see how far she can go and take risks. She is a positive thinker, expects success for herself, and is philosophical about failures. Joplin is flexible and she bounces back from disappointments rather quickly, usually with another hopeful new idea she wants to try. Her enthusiasm and confidence are contagious and enable Janis Joplin to enlist the aid and support she needs for her projects. However, Janis Joplin sometimes promises more than she can actually achieve, because she is overly optimistic or pays insufficient attention to the practicalities involved.
She also tends to get distracted and to have too many things going on at once. Although it is very difficult for her, there are times when Janis Joplin simply must cultivate commitment, perseverance and persistence in order to make her dreams and goals reality. Too often Janis Joplin falls short of what she could attain because she is unwilling to persist through the difficult or less exciting times.
Janis Joplin also enjoys competition and usually does not take it too seriously. Sports and entrepreneurial endeavors are good ways to channel Janis' energy.
She is likely to be known for her drive, energy, ambition, and competitive spirit. A successful career based on her ability to take initiative, be a leader, or excel in physical strength and prowess is likely. Janis Joplin most definitely wants to be a winner and will work hard to achieve that.
Freedom is very important to Janis Joplin and she will work hard to get it. Quick to act, she wants to realize her goals immediately. Janis Joplin has a strong desire to make her fortune in life and tends to take chances with speculative ventures or gambling.
She is very sensitive to the inner qualities of sincerity, honesty, integrity and good will. Janis Joplin notices these qualities (or the lack thereof) more quickly than others and brings them up frequently. She is philosophical about life and very perceptive, but may have an exaggerated sense of her own wisdom and depth of understanding of religious, metaphysical, artistic, or intuitive subjects.
She is capable of overcoming tremendous odds, and of enormous self-discipline and focus. When Janis Joplin sets her sights on achieving something or is presented with a thorny challenge, it is her capacity for eliminating the superfluous, getting along with very little, and riding through tough times that enables Janis Joplin to triumph eventually.
She may have to overcome some significant handicap from her childhood or background in order to attain her ambitions in life. Janis Joplin may appear un-ambitious, but she is apt to simply be playing her cards close to her chest. A sense of inadequacy based on early disappointments may make Janis Joplin an underachiever. However, she can accomplish a great deal if she understands the influence of the past, and learns to give herself the support and help which was lacking.
Janis Joplin possesses great zeal and passion for achieving her aspirations in life, and can be something of a fanatic when she sets her sights on a goal. Janis could do research work, psychological investigation, even detective work - anything that involves delving beneath the surface for hidden elements. A great love of mystery and exploring the unknown fuels many of Janis' personal ambitions.
Janis' profession is apt to involve communications, language, carrying messages, sales, speaking, or teaching - put simply, getting ideas across. A great deal of social involvement, networking, and personnel skills also play a significant part in her professional role.
Often Janis Joplin feels like she is being pulled in two directions - what she needs to do to fulfill her long-range ambitions, and what she actually feels like doing. This may make it difficult for Janis to be constant and consistent in pursuing goals, career aims, etc.
Relationships with women, trying to satisfy family needs, or other emotional attachments sometimes also conflict. Often Janis Joplin has to decide on one or another at a given time, rather than try to have both.
Her disposition could seem a bit strange to others and Joplin has a tendency to lose herself in illusions. Janis Joplin has a very dreamy nature and is inclined to fantasize about erotic and sexual situations.
