Although Molly Shannon approaches life instinctively and intuitively (as described on the previous page), she also has a very analytical, rational, unemotional side, as discussed below. Her conflicting urges may vacillate between living passionately and dangerously, and being conservative and playing it safe.
At heart Molly Shannon is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Molly Shannon has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Shannon can be relied upon to be cautious, efficient, and thorough in her work and she takes pride in a job well done. What she may lack in self-confidence Molly Shannon often makes up for in skills - fostering expertise, technical knowledge and competence in a specialized area. She is adept at using her hands to create or fix things, and meticulous attention to detail and careful craftsmanship are her forte. Some would say she is a little too meticulous, for Shannon can be extremely critical and petty if everything is not done exactly as she thinks it should be, and she worries about things that other people consider trivial and unimportant. Molly Shannon likes to organize, categorize and arrange everything into a logical system and is often distinctly uncomfortable when something does not fit into a neat category. Disorganization vexes Shannon. She probably wishes that she were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Shannon can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in her environment or within herself, Shannon tends to focus on the flaws, with a desire to improve, refine, and perfect. She is strictly factual, truthful, and scrupulously honest in her self-assessment and often does not give herself enough praise or credit.
She is also highly discriminating and may be especially particular about her diet, hygiene, and health habits. Molly has high aesthetic standards and refined sensitivities, and is bothered by environmental elements (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that others overlook. Her tastes are simple and understated, yet refined. She is truly offended by coarseness, bluntness and vulgarity. Shannon can sometimes be difficult to live with because of her fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though Molly Shannon seems rather cool and self-contained, she is very helpful by nature and enjoys serving others. She is content to play a supporting role rather than the lead. She is quietly devoted to the ones she cares for.
She is cautious, realistic and practical in her approach to life and disinclined to gamble. Molly Shannon analyzes before she acts. She is sometimes too serious. If Shannon allowed herself to play and make mistakes, it would be highly beneficial to her health!
Her career, reputation and public image are very important to Shannon. Molly Shannon has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. She is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Molly Shannon may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Molly Shannon 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.
Molly has lofty aspirations but does not struggle or labor to achieve them. Her self-confidence and inner harmony attract success and benefit her in an almost magical way. Her optimism and cheerful generosity also win Shannon many allies and successes in life.
Shannon might be called the eternal optimist and has a very peace-loving nature. She seems to be happy and content, generous and popular in social circles. Molly Shannon also has a good sense for business and likes to carry out enterprises on a large scale.
Her vitality is not up to par and her will-power a bit weak, making Molly Shannon vulnerable to swindle or deceit. Her inner discontent and casual attitude could easily lead Shannon into dubious schemes. Molly should refrain from any activity that seems to be subversive.
