Although Maia Morgenstern is quite proud and likes to show off and impress other people with her accomplishments and appearance (as described on the previous page) - she is really quite practical, solid, and down to earth (as discussed below). Because of this, she is likely to actually earn the right to be admired - that is, to have actually done something to be proud of.
She is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of her greatest assets. Once Morgenstern's course is set, she pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway her from her purpose.
Maia Morgenstern has a very practical nature; she wants to see concrete, tangible results for her efforts, and she is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of her "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for she has a great love of the physical world and she wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Maia Morgenstern will work long and persistently, she also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and she wants to enjoy what she has worked for. In fact, Morgenstern can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Maia Morgenstern also loves the beauty of the natural world and she probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, her needs are simple and she is easy to please. Maia Morgenstern has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless she is forced to do so. She is not very demanding emotionally, though she does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of her faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon Morgenstern for support. Though she hates upheaval and sudden changes, Maia Morgenstern usually maintains her poise and equanimity. Maia Morgenstern also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. She makes an excellent parent, especially if she follows her instincts more often than "the experts".
Maia has three major faults: one is her bullheaded obstinacy. The second is her unwillingness to deviate from her safe, predictable routine. And the third is Morgenstern's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Maia Morgenstern lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open her mind to new horizons.
Her career, reputation and public image are very important to Morgenstern. Maia Morgenstern has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. She is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Maia Morgenstern may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Her life is apt to be blessed with more than her share of helpful friends, fortuitous relationships, and doors opening up to her at just the right time. Because Maia Morgenstern is usually willing to share and to give back to others in a generous way, she continues to generate success in her life no matter how unfortunate prevailing circumstances are. Maia should beware, however, of becoming an opportunist.
However she also has a more somber side, which keeps Morgenstern's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Maia Morgenstern tends to seesaw between her faith, vision and high aspirations, and her caution and realism (or fear!). She cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and she accepts the need for hard work. Her skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
She is often plagued by feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions and self-doubt. Maia Morgenstern has a cautious, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to her obligations and duties. Maia Morgenstern tends to work and struggle more than necessary and to take herself too seriously.
While she is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Maia Morgenstern also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
Maia Morgenstern is extremely sensitive, compassionate and giving, often to her own detriment. Her ideals and spiritual values motivate Maia Morgenstern, and she cannot live for personal gain or materialistic concerns alone. There must be an element of beauty, magic, imagination, inspiration or creativity in what she does. Otherwise Maia Morgenstern becomes listless and aimless. The arts, theater, music and/or charitable work are ideally suited to Maia.
Maia Morgenstern deeply believes in her own power and her ability to survive any change and emerge victorious from any difficulty. Maia has tremendous inner resources and strength. Intense, strong willed, and zealous, she pursues her desires and goals with complete dedication and singleness of purpose, and she may be somewhat compulsive and even fanatical at times. Maia likes to live intensely and has no respect for people who are weak or avoid confronting life and their own destiny.
