Marion Cotillard's fundamental needs, values, and orientation towards life are symbolized by the four astrological elements. Each person has their own unique balance of these four basic energies: fire (warmth, inspiration, enthusiasm), earth (practicality, realism, material interests), air (social and intellectual qualities), and water (emotional needs and feelings).
Cotillard's "elemental make-up" is described below. Remember that most people are "unbalanced" or lopsided, and if Marion is lacking or deficient in a certain element (or elements), it simply means that she needs to consciously develop that particular aspect in order to appreciate and/or work harder in that dimension of life.
Sometimes we overestimate the element that we are least endowed with, sensing it as a lack within ourselves, but more often we neglect or ignore it. The qualities described below will be reiterated and explained in more detail in the following pages.
Cotillard is a positive and lively person who generally has an invigorating, inspiring, and energizing effect on others. Boredom or staying anchored in old habits is not a problem for Marion Cotillard since she has numerous interests and the energy to pursue many of them. However, she definitely has the tendency to overextend herself without taking the time to regroup or to move on to new things before she finishes previous tasks. Marion can burn out by being involved in too many activities. Marion Cotillard seems impelled to be always in motion, as if she were afraid if missing out on something interesting "out there". Paying attention to her body's need for rest, attending to her own inner world and feelings and giving sufficient attention to her immediate family and their needs is something Marion Cotillard needs to learn to do more of. It would benefit Cotillard to simply stop from time to time and take a breather.
She is very idealistic and frequently disappointed that she does not live in a perfect world, but it is through the vision and energy of people like Marion Cotillard that new ideas are introduced and positive changes made. Cotillard's gifts are her ability to entertain and toy with creative ideas and possibilities, seek new solutions to problems, and venture gaily into new territory (literally or figuratively).
Marion Cotillard needs to cultivate her capacity for receptivity - the ability to listen and quietly absorb what another person is saying, for example, instead of focusing on what she has to say. It would serve Marion Cotillard well to learn to wait and trust, rather than make something happen or try to bend the world to her will.
One of her primary challenges lies in developing a sense of security and stability and adopting a steady rhythm in life. Cultivating self-discipline, patience and endurance and learning to accept realistic limitations will enable Marion Cotillard to be more productive and to implement some of her ideas and creative impulses. Marion Cotillard is not always interested in the practicalities and compromises required to make her dreams a reality.
At times, Marion Cotillard feels out of place in the world, restless, discontent, unable to find her niche and dissatisfied with mundane reality. This may have the positive effect of sparking Cotillard's exploration of the creative, imaginative or spiritual side of life. However, Marion tends to resist growing up and learning how to effectively deal with adult responsibility. She also tends to be either bound up with the past or projecting into the future, thereby ignoring the present. To become more grounded in the here and now, Marion Cotillard may find it helpful to get massages on a regular basis, make a practice of gentle, rhythmic exercise like walking or yoga, and eat substantial, heavy foods.
Marion has trouble dealing with emotions - both her own and those of others. Marion Cotillard often ignores or discounts feelings and the emotional reality of a situation, thus seeming insensitive or uncaring to others. Cotillard needs to develop the capacity to experience deep emotional ties, empathy, compassion and sensitivity to the feelings of others; however, this ability will only manifest later in life rather than in her youth.
Though she may appear emotionally self-sufficient or above it all, Marion's tendency to repress her feelings could have physical ramifications; as such, it would serve Cotillard well to learn to acknowledge and express all of her emotions.
Cotillard may also find that she craves fluids or the desire to live near bodies of water as a means to acquire balance.
