Though Allen may seem breezy, independent and freedom loving (as mentioned in the previous chapter), she is in fact not completely happy without a partner. She enjoys being on the move and exploring new territory, but wants a traveling companion! Allen yearns for fulfilling, yet non-restricting relationships.
Harmony and balance are her keynotes. Karen Allen instinctively understands the need to accommodate other people's interests and desires, and she is always fair and willing to meet others half way. Tactful, diplomatic, and quite socially aware, Karen does all she can to avoid conflict and discord. Her spirit is one of cooperation and compromise, and she often achieves through charm and discretion what would have been impossible to achieve with a direct, forceful approach.
Getting along with and pleasing others may be too important to Allen since she can be too dependent on the approval and opinions of other to make her own decisions. Allen will rarely act without seeking the counsel and feedback of other people. She prefers sharing and doing things with others rather than on her own. Being alone feels very unnatural to Karen Allen, and she has a strong need for a partner and intimate one-on-one relationships.
Karen Allen invests a great deal of her energy in personal love relationships and she is very idealistic and romantic about marriage. Karen Allen seeks a partner who is her equal intellectually, and who is capable of a mental relationship as well as a physical and emotional one. She makes a thoughtful, considerate friend or lover, and she enjoys the traditional symbols of love - courtship, flowers, etc. Allen perceives relationships like an art that requires time, attention and creative effort. Karen Allen appreciates a partner who is subtle and polished, never coarse or blunt.
Fairness and equality, both in her personal relationships and in the world, are extremely important to her. If Karen Allen fights about anything, it is often about something she feels is unfair and unbalanced. Balance is very important to Karen. She believes in moderation in all things and avoids fanaticism and extremism at all costs.
Karen Allen also has a strong need for beautiful, harmonious surroundings and a natural sense of artistic style and grace, which is reflected in the way Allen dresses and furnishes her home and workspace. Everything must be aesthetically pleasing and appropriate. Working with people as a counselor, advisor, consultant, or negotiator, or in an artistic field such as design or photography would be fulfilling to her.
Her career, reputation, and public image are very important to Allen. Karen Allen has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy her; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Karen Allen may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Karen Allen tends to see things from her perspective only and to be rather subjective. She also enjoys talking and expressing her views but does not always listen as well. Karen Allen has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Allen's subconscious needs and feelings blend well with her conscious intentions and desires, therefore Karen Allen is able to proceed in her life's pursuits relatively unhampered by internal resistance or inconsistency. Karen's male-female relationships will reflect this state of internal harmony also.
Karen Allen aims high, dreams big, and has a tremendous sense of what she is capable of achieving. Overconfidence, grandiosity, lack of humility and/or extreme discontent in modest circumstances may be her faults. Generally, however, Allen's great expectations and enterprising spirit lead to success. Business, especially when there is an element of risk and speculation involved, is ideally suited to Karen.
However she also has a more somber side, which keeps Allen's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Karen Allen 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.
Karen Allen has a mature and often somber demeanor. She is serious, reserved, self-disciplined, highly responsible and conscientious. She progresses rather slowly in life, through her own efforts and persistence. She is also rather stern and judgmental, especially with herself. Cautious and careful, it is difficult for her to really let go, be spontaneous and playful. Karen likes to be in control of herself.
Although she takes herself and her responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of Karen Allen that rebels against rules and restrictions and the need to contend with outside authority. Allen can feel torn between conforming to the rules or fulfilling her obligations, and breaking free of them. Her wilder side will now be described.
Impulsive, restless and spontaneous, her life is apt to be somewhat unstable and full of sudden changes. Karen Allen is extremely independent and craves excitement, adventure, freedom and discovery.

Allen seems to lack self-confidence and has a sense of anxiety and insecurity that has no obvious cause. Karen Allen tends to withdraw and her outlook in general could be a bit too negative. Karen Allen should beware of letting her emotional tension react to her physical well-being.
