Behind Travers' rather jovial, open, enthusiastic demeanor (as described on the previous page), there is a very different side to her - deeper, more serious, and more emotionally intense, as described below. Her optimism and idealism are tempered and balanced by a certain skepticism and a sense of the darker side of life and of people.
Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, she is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. Mary Travers is extremely sensitive but disinclined to show it, and she only allows a special few into her inner world. Like a wary animal, she is cautious and mistrustful of those she does not know until "he sniffs them out". She is highly instinctive and intuitive. Mary Travers usually has a strong, immediate gut reaction to people, even though she may be unable to clearly articulate why she feels the way she does. Her feelings and perceptions go deeper than words.
Mary Travers also has a powerful need for deep emotional relationships and she forms very intense love bonds and attachments. She is possessive and often jealous of anyone or anything that she perceives as a threat to her relationship with someone she loves. When Mary Travers commits herself to someone or something, she is wholeheartedly devoted and expects complete loyalty in return. Mary merges with or "marries" the person she loves at a very deep level and therefore separations are extremely painful for her, and often stormy and nasty. When Travers has been wounded, she is not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. Mary will most certainly never forget the hurt and she often harbors grievances and resentment for a very long time. Forgiveness does not come easily to her.
Whatever she does, Mary does with passion and fervor, and she often goes to extremes. Travers can be hot or cold, but never lukewarm about anything. Travers can also be very narrow-minded: either she is 100% involved in something or it does not exist for her at all. Rarely is Mary Travers emotionally detached and objective. She definitely has a fanatical streak. She is also immensely strong-willed and her tenacity in pursuing her objectives often borders on obsession. She is filled with fierce pride, courage and emotional strength.
Mary Travers loves mysteries and is deeply attracted to the hidden, dark, secret side of life. Mary never takes things at face value and is always probing beneath the surface of people and situations to discover what is really going on. Mary Travers tends to be more of a cynic than an idealist.
Leading groups and classes, and being involved in community efforts, social activities, events or movements are areas where Mary Travers really shines and expresses her creativity. An awareness of politics or the larger social impact of individual actions is natural to her.
Mary Travers tends to see things from her perspective only and to be rather subjective. She also enjoys talking and expressing her views but does not always listen as well. Mary Travers has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Realistic and practical, Mary Travers sets goals for herself that are modest enough for her to actually achieve. She is able to tackle long, difficult projects and see them through, for Travers possesses self-discipline, concentration and perseverance. Mary Travers also has a strong sense of responsibility and is very conscientious about fulfilling her obligations. Travers often does things because she feels it is expected of her.
While she is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Mary Travers also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
She is very open and receptive to the spiritual, intangible, and subtle realms, and can easily receive or give conscious guidance based on her inner attunement. Mary Travers takes many things for granted, such as the existence of an afterlife or the effects of subtle influences like aromatherapy, spiritual healing, etc. These things seem obvious to Mary, whereas to many people they are a matter of conjecture or even illusory. Mary Travers may not realize she has spiritual gifts because they come so naturally to her.
