drive and ambition
Once Madonna sets her mind on a goal, her dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Veronica Ciccone pursues her ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Madonna 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 Madonna to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Madonna has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for her to overcome before Veronica Ciccone 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. Madonna 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. Madonna'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. Madonna also tends to play it safe, and to limit herself as a result.
She has passionate convictions and will fight for them when challenged. Madonna 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 Veronica Ciccone gets so involved and identified with her ideas that she cannot really be receptive to anyone who opposes her philosophically.
Intensely restless, dynamic and energetic, she is always on the go. When Madonna wants something, she wants it NOW, and she acts decisively and impulsively, albeit sometimes hastily and prematurely. Impatient, high-strung, and often nervous and tense, Madonna finds it difficult to slow down, pace herself or relax. She is fiercely individualistic and independent, self-willed and intolerant of restraints and restrictions imposed by others. Madonna has a reckless disregard for authority and can be extremely rebellious. Cooperating with others is not Veronica Ciccone's strong point! She is often brutally frank and abrupt with people, and can be quite impersonal when she is pursuing a desired goal. She may demonstrate an explosive temper when her will is blocked. Madonna has a superabundance of energy and she needs a great deal of personal freedom to do things in her own style and at her own pace.
To achieve her long-range goals and ambitions, the process must be interesting and mentally stimulating, as Veronica Ciccone gets bored with work that is not challenging intellectually. Madonna needs variety and social stimulation as well. One problem she may have is saying the wrong thing at the wrong time, or to the wrong person. Madonna needs to watch her words. Her tongue or even her sense of humor can get Madonna in trouble with superiors at times.
In some ways Madonna may feels that she has little choice about her role in society. She is compelled either by unusual outer circumstances or by an inner drive, to bring things which may be dark, difficult, or taboo, into public awareness. Madonna delves into the hidden side of life, things which may have been purposefully concealed or repressed, and brings these things to light. Madonna could come into direct conflict with the authorities or powers-that-be as a result. She is apt to have extraordinary ambitions, and could also become overly zealous and fanatical.
Her career is apt to involve beauty, adornment, the arts, or entertainment. Her personal charm and appeal are significant factors in her profession, as well. Madonna is very good at selling and promoting - whether it is herself, or her product or company.
Her professional goals and long-range ambitions may be vague and difficult for Madonna to define for quite a long time. This is partly due to the fact that they are not very conventional, concrete, or worldly. Madonna is apt to have more of a spiritual vocation or calling. Healing, counseling, the ministry, music, art - or some combination thereof - may well be part of her role in life. On the other hand, Madonna may simply be confused and seemingly not ambitious at all in the professional realm.
