drive and ambition
Once Lois Maxwell sets her mind on a goal, her dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Maxwell pursues her ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Lois 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 Lois Maxwell to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Lois Maxwell has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for her to overcome before Maxwell 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. Lois Maxwell 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. Lois' 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. Lois Maxwell also tends to play it safe, and to limit herself as a result.
Asserting herself and being direct and forceful about what she wants is often very difficult for Lois. Though she may have a great deal of energy and drive, Lois Maxwell lacks confidence or simply the desire to put herself and her interests first. On the positive side, Maxwell can be very unselfish, working more for the benefit of others than for herself.
However, Lois Maxwell denies her own desires and needs too much, and she is likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage her finest efforts.
She enjoys risky, exciting activities and cannot tolerate too much routine, tedium or inactivity. Unless other factors in her chart suggest staying power and the ability to follow through, Lois Maxwell may be the person who initiates a new venture but cannot happily participate in the ongoing, sustained effort it requires. "Independent" is Maxwell's middle name! Lois Maxwell needs to be a totally free agent, to run her own show. Lois likes to introduce new concepts to people, and then move on.
While Lois Maxwell is often charged with energy and inspired about what she wants to do (as mentioned earlier), there is a dreamy, visionary, or passive side to her as well. Her energy level may fluctuate from being superabundant to rather lax.
Ordinary life often seems drab and uninteresting to Lois and she must have something that stirs her imagination - a vision or ideal or dream to motivate her. Lois Maxwell has a strong urge to act out her fantasies or to live her dream, and Lois Maxwell will act where others merely talk or dream. Artistic creation, drama or other areas in which Maxwell can express herself imaginatively are excellent for her.
Work that only serves her own narrow personal interests does not satisfy Lois Maxwell. She may lack the competitive edge, the fighting spirit, the "me first" attitude that is often required for material advancement and success. She also tends to either overestimate or underestimate her own power and abilities.
Her efforts to do something are likely to be half-hearted. Lois Maxwell tends to get discouraged easily and may lack an incentive to work. Her sexual drive also may be somewhat low and Maxwell tends to be averse to physical exertion in general.
Maxwell may well have an unusual destiny or pivotal role to play in a drama that involves much more than her own personal ambitions and professional aims. This could involve uncovering secrets, bringing deception, cruelty, or injustice to light, or making fundamental changes in a given field. Lois' work may also involve life and death issues, crises and emergencies. Somewhere along the way, fate may force Maxwell's hand - and it may require some self-sacrifice on her part. On the other hand, her real work may be rather subtle - a quiet transformation of a particular area or field. Lois Maxwell is destined for in-depth work.
She is refined and sensitive and likely to have subconscious insights or hunches. Lois Maxwell is highly intuitive and the feelings she gets about things are probably accurate. She is also creative and inspirational and could do well in an artistic field.
