Although Martha Stewart comes across as a very private, somewhat wary and enigmatic individual (as described on the previous page), there is another, quite different side to her: a person who really wants to be noticed, known, loved and admired.
Proud and intensely individual, Martha Stewart really wants to stand out, to be the very best she can be, and to be recognized and appreciated for her unique contributions. Doing something well and being respected for it is extremely important to her, and she cannot tolerate being relegated to the background, taking orders from others, or being "just one of the team". Martha Stewart must put her personal stamp on whatever she does, and direct her own course in life. Martha Stewart needs to have a place where she can shine, express herself creatively, and be the one in charge.
Martha has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. Martha Stewart also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Martha Stewart, it is true that "the entire world's a stage" and she secretly (or perhaps not so secretly) desires to be the star or hero of the play. Martha wants to be great and to receive the love and applause of an adoring audience, even if the "audience" is just one other special person. She needs someone to believe in her and her dreams. Though Stewart appears radiantly self-confident and independent, she is actually very dependent on the affirmation, love and recognition of others. She cannot bear going unnoticed or unappreciated.
Martha Stewart also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person she loves feel special. Martha Stewart loves the magic of "being in love" and knows how to keep the romance alive in her relationships. She is also immensely loyal and will defend her loved ones and stand by them to the end - as long as they never offend her pride or betray her trust. However, Martha Stewart likes to be the strong one in her relationships and she really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, Martha needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as she is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with her.
Stewart's strengths are her zest and love for life, her creative power and her warm and generous heart. Her primary fault is her tendency to be very egocentric, and so concerned with the impression she is making and with her own creative self-expression that she forgets there is another, larger world that does not revolve around her.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand her intellectual horizons and broaden her understanding of the world are very attractive to Stewart.
Martha Stewart has a philosophical turn of mind and is concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting the overview of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy her mind much of the time.
Her life is apt to be blessed with more than her share of helpful friends, fortuitous relationships, and doors opening to her at just the right time. Because Martha Stewart is usually willing to share and to give back to others in a generous way, she continues to generate successes in her life no matter how unfortunate prevailing circumstances are. Martha should beware, however, of becoming an opportunist.
Inwardly she is zealous and fanatical, though she may hide her personal desires and intentions, as well as the intensity of her feelings. She is driven by a deep inner sense of destiny and mission and an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition. Martha is infatuated with power, incredibly willful and stubbornly fixated on achieving greatness or being someone Special. Martha Stewart tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma, and she often seeks to emulate them. Martha has potential for tremendous good or tremendous evil.
Martha has the ability to stand on her own feet and use the power of her own personality to attain success. Martha Stewart needs to be a leader and she has a strong desire to obtain power and authority. It is imperative to Stewart that she be out in front of the parade.
