Serious and responsible, she tries to carry the world on her shoulders and rarely lets others know that she needs help and support. Maria Sharapova denies or ignores her own emotional needs and feels that others will not accept her if she appears "weak". She is especially uncomfortable with emotional dependency, and tells herself and others (even children) not to be a "baby". Maria Sharapova needs to accept that no one is self-sufficient all the time, and to be gentler with her "childish" emotional needs and wants. To others, she may appear to be rather hard-nosed and tough, with a businesslike attitude toward their personal concerns and feelings. Actually, no one is a truer friend. Her feelings and loyalties run deep, but she often does not let people know how much she cares. Maria Sharapova also sometimes needs to learn to relax, enjoy herself, and play.
She is emotionally expressive and often dramatizes her feelings, acting them out or blowing them out of proportion. Maria Sharapova cannot hide her instinctive emotional reactions to people or situations, and she does not make any pretenses about her personal sympathies or antipathies.
Maria Sharapova has a childlike openness and playfulness which is very appealing to others, but which sometimes gets her into trouble, as Maria takes risks on impulse or whim.
Maria Sharapova tends to be touchy, defensive and rather territorial, and if she perceives a threat to her family or home or personal safety, she can be quite aggressive. Sometimes Maria feels out of sorts and hostile for no apparent reason, and this is usually due to unexpressed, unresolved anger from the past. Maria Sharapova also has a desire to lead, to compete, or to be a free agent, that she is not entirely conscious of. It is good for Sharapova to have benign outlets and ways to let off steam on a regular basis, such as demanding physical work or athletics. Otherwise Maria Sharapova may be rather hard to live with, even abusive in her relationships.
Although Maria Sharapova was portrayed above as being assertive and combative, she also has a diametrically opposed tendency - namely the urge to escape all contention and ugliness. This may mellow Maria's fiery reactions somewhat, or she may seesaw between the two. Her softer side is described in the following paragraphs.
She is a sensitive soul and a dreamer who is very much attuned to the world of imagination and fantasy. Maria Sharapova often retreats into her own inner world in order to escape the harshness of everyday living in the "real world". Gentle and often rather passive as well, she will not fight or assert herself, even when she needs to. Maria Sharapova is very sympathetic and somewhat naive emotionally and must guard against being taken advantage of.
Maria has very deep feelings and profound attachments to people she cares about. Her relationships to her mother, sisters, daughters, and other females in her life are apt to be incredibly close and intense. Maria Sharapova may be easily manipulated too, when it comes to one of these important relationships, because she is so emotionally invested in it.
Tremendously softhearted and sympathetic, Maria Sharapova gives very selflessly and devotedly to those she loves and often allows others to become overly dependent upon her. More compassionate than passionate, Maria Sharapova may become romantically involved with a person because she or she expresses a need for love, rather than out of mutual pleasure or attraction.
She is drawn to sensitive, imaginative, gentle souls - poets, musicians, dreamers - or to someone Maria feels she can have a deep spiritual relationship with. Maria Sharapova idealizes love and has a very beautiful, romantic vision of what love relationships can be.
Maria is attracted to foreigners, exotic places, traveling, and to people who can expand her horizons, teach her something, or show Sharapova places and worlds she has never experienced before. Sharing a philosophy or ideal with her love partner is important to her.
Also, Maria Sharapova feels love and kinship for people everywhere, not only with her own family, nationality, or group. Finding similarities and making links between people from differing backgrounds or with different perspectives is a gift of hers.
Her love feelings are easily aroused and her romantic relationships begin with a sudden electric attraction, but they often end abruptly, and Sharapova may be in and out of love relationships - especially in her younger years. Maria Sharapova craves emotional excitement and needs to feel spontaneous and free, so she may avoid making firm personal commitments. Unusual or nontraditional forms of love and relationships appeal to Sharapova, and she is attracted to unique, creative or unstable people.
