Behind Woodward's rather prudent, shrewd and guarded manner (described in the previous chapter), she is really kind, altruistic and idealistic. She is also much more vulnerable than she appears. She is very prudent and sharp in handling some of her affairs, but occasionally Woodward's deep-rooted idealism can cloud her vision. Moreover, she may wage an internal battle, swinging between traditional, conservative pragmatism and lofty idealism.
At heart she is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of her imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Joanne Woodward 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 Woodward may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Joanne Woodward usually keeps to herself.
Joanne 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. Joanne has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and she often feels the pain of others as if it were her own. Joanne Woodward 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, Woodward 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. Joanne 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. Woodward will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Woodward tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. She is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Joanne Woodward 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. Joanne Woodward 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 Woodward more than it bothers her.
Ownership gives Joanne Woodward a sense of security, and she has a strong attachment to her possessions. Joanne also has a natural instinct or understanding of economics, finance, trade, and appraising the value of merchandise.
Joanne Woodward is loving and well loved by others, and has a strong need for relationships that offer kindness, friendship and affection. Her artistic and creative powers are also well developed and Joanne does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Woodward, as are her personal appearance and attractiveness.
Joanne has big aspirations and the desire to succeed in life in a grand way. Joanne Woodward tends to exaggerate, promise more than is feasible and misjudge by being overly optimistic. However, she never gives up on her hopes for the future. Woodward tends to be restless and discontent with the responsibilities and limitations of life.
While Joanne Woodward deeply appreciates beauty and has a great desire for love, she is in no way frivolous or indiscriminate in her affections. Woodward can be very frugal and sparing with both money and emotions.
However she also has a more somber side, which keeps Woodward's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Joanne Woodward 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.
Joanne Woodward has a healthy amount of self-control and self-discipline. Woodward also radiates a rather responsible, trustworthy, solid feeling about herself which will win her the confidence of others, especially her superiors.
She is inclined to feel uncomfortable or restrained in some way in the presence of others and prefer to be alone. Joanne Woodward is modest and shy in her approach to others and tends to accept more responsibility than she really needs to.
Joanne has the ability to stand on her own feet and use the power of her own personality to attain success. Joanne Woodward needs to be a leader and she has a strong desire to obtain power and authority. It is imperative to Woodward that she be out in front of the parade.
Joanne Woodward loves to entertain and likes to cultivate social contacts. She enjoys forming close personal relationships with others and most of them should be harmonious. Joanne prefers teamwork rather than separate efforts to realize her goals.
