Open and generous, Judy Garland enjoys a wide circle of friends and acquaintances and she thrives on sociability and fellowship. She is adventurous, playful, freedom loving, and always ready for a good time. Garland rarely allows obstacles or difficulties to keep her down, for no matter how bleak the past or present, Judy always expects a better, brighter future. In fact, she is uncomfortable with her own or other people's problems and emotional pain. Judy Garland often tries to "cheer up" or offer philosophical advice to those who are hurting, but she unwittingly avoids or ignores the emotions involved.
Friendship means a great deal to Garland, perhaps even more than love relationships or romance. For Judy Garland to be happy, her mate must be her best friend and encourage Judy's aspirations and ideals. Judy Garland also needs a great deal of emotional freedom and mobility.
Judy Garland has a sympathetic nature and instinctively reaches out to people in need of help. Garland also has a deeply ingrained tendency to want to improve or "fix" other people's lives, which can be annoying to the person who has no desire to be changed or "helped" in this way. For Judy, affection and caring must be expressed in tangible acts or service of some kind.
Judy Garland often feels that she must do something or be something other than what she is in order to receive approval and acceptance from others. She is very sensitive to criticism and easily feels left out or neglected, and though she may appear cool or distant, Garland actually cares very much about being included. Because she is so sensitive, it may seem easier for Judy Garland to withdraw into a shell rather than risk the emotional bumps and bruises she may endure once she lets others really know her in an intimate, personal way. Her reserve and caution make establishing close emotional relationships with others difficult, and Judy Garland becomes very attached to the few people she considers "real friends". Garland can gain inner security and strength through periods of solitude if she views them as times to nourish herself and develop her own interests, rather than as times of loneliness.
Judy Garland tends to be a loner and is inclined to suppress her feelings. Other people think they know Judy, but they never really do. At times she may withdraw too much and may alienate others. Judy Garland is also somewhat biased and may be torn by inner conflicts.
Her emotional needs are very important to Judy Garland and she tends to seek approval and recognition from the people in her immediate world. Garland will derive more benefit in activities with others than by keeping to her.
Sensitive and sentimental, Judy Garland is deeply attached to her family, old friends, familiar places and the past. She is romantic and tender in love relationships, and it is of utmost importance to Garland to remember birthdays, anniversaries, family rituals and other personally significant days. Judy Garland seeks caring, emotional support, and security in her love relationships. Judy likes to be needed, as well as to cherish and protect her loved ones, of whom she is somewhat possessive.
Garland is very much aware of her personal appearance, attractiveness, and charm, and she can be rather narcissistic. On the other hand, Judy Garland is concerned with getting along with others and she has a pleasing, agreeable manner that people find quite appealing. Judy uses tact or charm to get what she wants rather than intense effort or force. Her desire for love and affection colors everything Judy Garland does.
There can be a lack of harmony or satisfaction in Garland's romantic relationships - not necessarily a great deal of open conflict, but simply an underlying tension or discontent. This is because the people Judy Garland finds likeable, lovable, and agreeable to she may not be at all attuned to her sexual tastes and needs. Another, more direct way of saying this is, the people Judy loves and the people Judy wants to make love with are very different from one another. Judy Garland may be confused about what she really needs and wants in personal relationships. Garland needs to acknowledge that she has some conflicting desires (such as a partner who is very gentle and sensitive but also a powerful, dominant personality, or security and commitment in love relationships but also a lot of freedom and excitement.) Trying to satisfy both sides of the equation can be a tricky challenge.
