Even though she is emotionally intense and can be somewhat of a pressure cooker at times (as described on the previous page), Mary Astor is very grounded and stable at heart, as described in more detail below. Her essentially sensible, practical nature enables Mary Astor to direct some of her powerful feelings and drives into productive channels.
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 Astor's course is set, she pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway her from her purpose.
Mary Astor 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 Mary Astor 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, Astor can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Mary Astor 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. Mary Astor 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 Astor for support. Though she hates upheaval and sudden changes, Mary Astor usually maintains her poise and equanimity. Mary Astor 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".
Mary 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 Astor's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Mary Astor lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open her mind to new horizons.
Her energies are directed toward either honing her professional techniques, skills and abilities or "perfecting", refining, and improving herself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. Mary Astor is highly motivated to strive for a state of wholeness or optimal functioning and she is quite a perfectionist!
Astor can easily become overly identified or involved with the task she performs, with her work, or with her own health and "growth process".
Mary Astor feels that she has the support of her family or others in her environment for her creative efforts and personal goals, which enables her to act with confidence. She is able to satisfy both her need to be an individual and her need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. She is in harmony with herself and is therefore an effective individual.
Mary Astor has a healthy amount of self-control and self-discipline. Astor also radiates a rather responsible, trustworthy, solid feeling about herself which will win her the confidence of others, especially her superiors.
Although she takes herself and her responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of Mary Astor that rebels against rules and restrictions and the need to contend with outside authority. Astor can feel torn between conforming to the rules or fulfilling her obligations, and breaking free of them. Her wilder side will now be described.
The unusual and unorthodox appeal to Astor, and she does not allow tradition, convention or other people's expectations to dictate how she is going to live her life. Mary Astor craves freedom, adventure, excitement and discovery, and is not afraid of change. Mary Astor possesses inventive and creative genius.
Mary Astor probably has great intellectual ability and curiosity. Mary never seem to run out of ideas and always welcomes the study of new subjects, the more abstract the better. But she also has the basic sense to translate abstract ideas into practical reality.
