Even though she is emotionally intense and can be somewhat of a pressure cooker at times (as described on the previous page), Joanna Lumley is very grounded and stable at heart, as described in more detail below. Her essentially sensible, practical nature enables Joanna Lumley to direct some of her powerful feelings and drives into productive channels.
She is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of her greatest assets. Once Lumley's course is set, she pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway her from her purpose.
Joanna Lumley has a very practical nature; she wants to see concrete, tangible results for her efforts, and she is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of her "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for she has a great love of the physical world and she wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Joanna Lumley will work long and persistently, she also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and she wants to enjoy what she has worked for. In fact, Lumley can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Joanna Lumley also loves the beauty of the natural world and she probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, her needs are simple and she is easy to please. Joanna Lumley has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless she is forced to do so. She is not very demanding emotionally, though she does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of her faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon Lumley for support. Though she hates upheaval and sudden changes, Joanna Lumley usually maintains her poise and equanimity. Joanna Lumley also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. She makes an excellent parent, especially if she follows her instincts more often than "the experts".
Joanna has three major faults: one is her bullheaded obstinacy. The second is her unwillingness to deviate from her safe, predictable routine. And the third is Lumley's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Joanna Lumley lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open her mind to new horizons.
Her energies are directed to either perfecting her techniques, skills, and abilities in work, or in "perfecting", refining, and improving herself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. The urge to bring about a state of wholeness or optimal functioning is a strong motivation of Joanna Lumley's, and she is quite a perfectionist!
Lumley can easily become overly identified or involved with the function she performs, with her work, or with her own health and "growth process".
The above description of Joanna Lumley is so deeply ingrained that she has little objectivity and often little appreciation for other, different ways of approaching life. Joanna Lumley 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.
She is intensely willful, zealous, and fanatical though Joanna often hides the intensity of her feelings and her personal motives and desires. Lumley is infatuated with power and has an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition and the desire to be "somebody". Joanna Lumley tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma and often seeks to emulate them. Joanna Lumley both fears, and is intensely fascinated with, death and the hidden, secret, dark side of life.
