drive and ambition
Once Laurie Anderson sets her mind on a goal, her dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Anderson pursues her ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Laurie labors patiently and steadfastly until she achieves what she wants - or until it is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that all is lost. She is a reliable, consistent and productive worker, and she often shoulders more of the workload than her co-workers, usually without complaint. She often ends up with the nitty-gritty work. She prefers a regular routine, with definite hours and clearly defined responsibilities and tasks. In fact, establishing a pattern or routine is very important to her success because once she gets started in a certain direction, it is easy for Laurie Anderson to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Laurie Anderson has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for her to overcome before Anderson gets going; but once she gets a momentum going, her energy level is strong and steady.
She is interested in concrete results and solid, practical achievements. Laurie Anderson needs to have some tangible product or contribution to show for her efforts, and cannot be content with only intangible rewards (such as having a good time, learning, or spiritual enrichment). Material well-being and security is also a large factor in determining what she does. Laurie's stamina and persistence are her greatest assets, but they can also work against her; she can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Laurie Anderson also tends to play it safe, and to limit herself as a result.
She has passionate convictions and will fight for them when challenged. Laurie Anderson is willing to dedicate a great deal of her energy and force to an important cause, and she will act decisively on her beliefs, rather than simply espousing them.
Sometimes Anderson gets so involved and identified with her ideas that she cannot really be receptive to anyone who opposes her philosophically.
Laurie Anderson has a powerful will and when she wants something, she pursues it passionately and relentlessly until she achieves it. She may be so driven by her desire that she loses all objectivity. Laurie Anderson often becomes compulsive, even obsessed, with doing or achieving something, no matter what the costs or how hard she must work for it. Her forcefulness may be veiled or subtle, for often Anderson does not reveal her real aims and intentions to others until they cross her. Intense power struggles and relationships with a strong dominance/submissiveness theme are likely to erupt. Laurie Anderson has enormous energy reserves, and is capable of extraordinary effort and great achievement if she uses her energies for constructive purposes.
Anderson is able to do her work and take responsibility for overcoming her own problems and challenges in life, while at the same time being open to spiritual comfort, aid and guidance.

Her father or grandfather probably influenced Anderson's choice of career, and will back her up - as long as Laurie chooses to follow in their footsteps.
Often Laurie Anderson feels like she is being pulled in two directions - what she needs to do to fulfill her long-range ambitions, and what she actually feels like doing. This may make it difficult for Laurie to be constant and consistent in pursuing goals, career aims, etc.
Relationships with women, trying to satisfy family needs, or other emotional attachments sometimes also conflict. Often Laurie Anderson has to decide on one or another at a given time, rather than try to have both.
