Her desire for harmonious relationships and surroundings is so strong that she avoids personal confrontations or any expression of intense, unpleasant emotions. Maya Angelou is an idealist who would like to paint the world in pastel colors, and live in peace and harmony with others at all times. She is able to see points of similarity and unity with people who are vastly different from her, and befriend many different types of people. She is a considerate and thoughtful friend, and has a real flair for making others feel accepted and appreciated. Inwardly Maya Angelou is often torn with indecision and is much more at odds with herself than others would ever guess from her smooth, even disposition.
She is likely to be a great collector of things - a real pack rat in fact - for her belongings give Maya Angelou a sense of security and continuity with the past, which is important to her. Antiques or things with sentimental value from Maya's past are especially dear to her.
Maya Angelou may also cling rather tightly to money and possessions, keeping them "in the family" rather than sharing freely with those outside of her immediate circle.
Gregarious and fun-loving, she is always out to have a good time. Maya Angelou tends to "play now, pay later" and is prone to overspend, overeat, drink too much, and in general overdo; even more so when in the company of others. It is hard for Maya Angelou to say no, especially when her emotions or appetites are involved. Generous to a fault, she is apt to be very free both with money and with affection.
Maya has intense desires and feelings and her personal relationships are deeply emotional, passionate, and often stormy and painful as well. Maya Angelou has powerful magnetic relationships with those she cares about, and she could become emotionally obsessed by another person. Her feelings can become so urgent and compelling that she does things that are not rational. Maya Angelou undergoes periodic emotional upheavals and purging, when she must break all ties, release the past and begin anew.
Maya has an optimistic outlook, good intuition and the ability to find and use opportunities to her advantage. Her quick understanding of things allows Maya Angelou to see beyond ordinary limits, and she has the courage to exploit unexpected breaks.
Tremendously softhearted and sympathetic, Maya Angelou gives very selflessly and devotedly to those she loves and often allows others to become overly dependent upon her. More compassionate than passionate, Maya Angelou may become romantically involved with someone because they need love and she wants to help them, rather than out of mutual pleasure or attraction.
She is drawn to sensitive, imaginative, gentle souls - poets, musicians, dreamers - or to someone Maya feels she can have deep spiritual relationships with. Maya Angelou idealizes love and has a very beautiful, romantic vision of what love relationships can be.
Maya Angelou craves very intense, deep, emotional relationships, and would even prefer stormy, tumultuous relationships to ones that are smooth but lacking vitality and passion. Maya loves wholeheartedly and expects all-consuming, total devotion and attention from her partner. Casual, light relationships hold no appeal for Angelou.
She is serious and finds it difficult to enjoy herself in a lighthearted, open and playful way with others. Maya Angelou rarely does something purely for pleasure, and can be very close-fisted and parsimonious. Perhaps due to painful separations in her early life, Maya is very cautious about becoming involved in close relationships and sharing her feelings. Though Angelou craves love and affection, intimacy is difficult for her. She may become romantically involved with people who do not value her or treat her well. Maya Angelou needs to learn to love and value herself before she will find happiness in love.
She is romantic and amorous and has a well-developed sexual nature. Maya expresses her feelings openly, but sometimes could feel hurt if people do not respond to her. Maya Angelou also has a strong drive to express herself in artistic ways.
She is rich in feelings and has the ability to express them well. Maya Angelou has a knack for making others feel good and is likely to enjoy a harmonious sex-life. Maya also has a strong need to create and may have a flair for designing fashionable clothes.
