Although she can appear freewheeling, independent, and, at times, inconsistent (as mentioned in the previous chapter), at heart she is very loyal and constant. Lillian Carter possesses a certain steadiness and firmness of will that may not be obvious to others until they get to know Lillian well.
Proud and intensely individual, Lillian Carter really wants to stand out, to be the very best she can be, and to be recognized and appreciated for her unique contributions. Doing something well and being respected for it is extremely important to her, and she cannot tolerate being relegated to the background, taking orders from others, or being "just one of the team". Lillian Carter must put her personal stamp on whatever she does, and direct her own course in life. Lillian Carter needs to have a place where she can shine, express herself creatively, and be the one in charge.
Lillian has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. Lillian Carter also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Lillian Carter, it is true that "the entire world's a stage" and she secretly (or perhaps not so secretly) desires to be the star or hero of the play. Lillian wants to be great and to receive the love and applause of an adoring audience, even if the "audience" is just one other special person. She needs someone to believe in her and her dreams. Though Carter appears radiantly self-confident and independent, she is actually very dependent on the affirmation, love and recognition of others. She cannot bear going unnoticed or unappreciated.
Lillian Carter also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person she loves feel special. Lillian Carter loves the magic of "being in love" and knows how to keep the romance alive in her relationships. She is also immensely loyal and will defend her loved ones and stand by them to the end - as long as they never offend her pride or betray her trust. However, Lillian Carter likes to be the strong one in her relationships and she really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, Lillian needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as she is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with her.
Carter's strengths are her zest and love for life, her creative power and her warm and generous heart. Her primary fault is her tendency to be very egocentric, and so concerned with the impression she is making and with her own creative self-expression that she forgets there is another, larger world that does not revolve around her.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand her intellectual horizons and broaden her understanding of the world are very attractive to Carter.
Lillian Carter has a philosophical turn of mind and is concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting the overview of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy her mind much of the time.
She is very open and receptive to the spiritual, intangible, and subtle realms, and can easily receive or give conscious guidance based on her inner attunement. Lillian Carter takes many things for granted, such as the existence of an afterlife or the effects of subtle influences like aromatherapy, spiritual healing, etc. These things seem obvious to Lillian, whereas to many people they are a matter of conjecture or even illusory. Lillian Carter may not realize she has spiritual gifts because they come so naturally to her.
