Although Josie Maran is quite proud and likes to show off and impress other people with her accomplishments and appearance (as described on the previous page) - she is really quite practical, solid, and down to earth (as discussed below). Because of this, she is likely to actually earn the right to be admired - that is, to have actually done something to be proud of.
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 Maran's course is set, she pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway her from her purpose.
Josie Maran 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 Josie Maran 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, Maran can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Josie Maran 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. Josie Maran 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 Maran for support. Though she hates upheaval and sudden changes, Josie Maran usually maintains her poise and equanimity. Josie Maran 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".
Josie 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 Maran's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Josie Maran lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open her mind to new horizons.
Her career, reputation and public image are very important to Maran. Josie Maran has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. She is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Josie Maran may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
If she follows her true nature, her life is apt to be unconventional, unusual, controversial and full of insecurity and excitement. Josie Maran cannot and will not be forced into a pre-set mold, and Josie finds it difficult to conform. Her offbeat interests and tastes lead Maran to ventures that others may consider too "far-out" or experimental. Josie Maran has a very creative, inventive streak.
Josie Maran tends to be very impressionable and psychically open, and as a youngster, she may have been dominated in relationships with more forceful personalities. Afraid of confrontation, Maran may have become passive, identified herself as a helpless victim, or tried to achieve her desires in underhanded ways.
Josie's hypersensitivity to her environment is likely to be a challenge for her in other ways as well. Pollutants, ugliness or dissonance in any form may affect Josie Maran more than most people.
