Kathleen Quinlan's fundamental needs, values, and orientation towards life are symbolized by the four astrological elements. Each person has their own unique balance of these four basic energies: fire (warmth, inspiration, enthusiasm), earth (practicality, realism, material interests), air (social and intellectual qualities), and water (emotional needs and feelings).
Quinlan's "elemental make-up" is described below. Remember that most people are "unbalanced" or lopsided, and if Kathleen is lacking or deficient in a certain element (or elements), it simply means that she needs to consciously develop that particular aspect in order to appreciate and/or work harder in that dimension of life.
Sometimes we overestimate the element that we are least endowed with, sensing it as a lack within ourselves, but more often we neglect or ignore it. The qualities described below will be reiterated and explained in more detail in the following pages.
She is a very gentle person, inclined to immerse herself in her own private, subjective world, and to keep much of what she is experiencing to herself. The pressures of the outer world can seem too much to cope with at times and Kathleen needs to develop her "warrior" side that will enable her to face the world more directly and confidently. The aforementioned passivity can also be a real problem for Kathleen Quinlan, as she is prone to be receptive and to go with the flow rather than take decisive action on her own initiative.
Quinlan also tends to be involved in relationships where others depend upon her to an unhealthy degree, or where she depends on the other person too much - so much so that her sense of self as a distinct individual becomes blurred. Kathleen Quinlan sometimes nurtures others at the expense of her own needs.
Her outward behavior, which - as we shall see in the next chapter - is rather lighthearted and rational in nature, can be very deceiving since, overall, Kathleen Quinlan is quite an emotional, deeply feeling, often irrational person.
