Although Natalie Appleton is quite proud and likes to show off and impress other people with her accomplishments and appearance (as described on the previous page) - she is really quite practical, solid, and down to earth (as discussed below). Because of this, she is likely to actually earn the right to be admired - that is, to have actually done something to be proud of.
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 Appleton's course is set, she pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway her from her purpose.
Natalie Appleton 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 Natalie Appleton 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, Appleton can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Natalie Appleton 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. Natalie Appleton 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 Appleton for support. Though she hates upheaval and sudden changes, Natalie Appleton usually maintains her poise and equanimity. Natalie Appleton 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".
Natalie 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 Appleton's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Natalie Appleton lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open her mind to new horizons.
Her career, reputation, and public image are very important to Appleton. Natalie Appleton has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy her; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Natalie Appleton may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Natalie Appleton 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. Natalie Appleton has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
There is an ongoing, subtle conflict within Natalie Appleton, between her conscious attitudes and aspirations, and her deeper emotional and subconscious beliefs, needs, and feelings. This creates considerable inner stress and sometimes paralyzing indecision, mostly due to the fact that Natalie may be trying to follow a path that is at odds with her subconscious desires. Chronic tightness or tension in her body may well be a signal that Natalie Appleton is denying or suppressing the messages from her subconscious or emotional self.
Ideally, Natalie Appleton will learn to accept the two quite different aspects of her and to express both of them. If she cannot do this, Appleton is apt to attract many relationships into her life with people who reflect her denied or repressed qualities, and who seem to make her life difficult. (Read also chapter 4 in order to get a better picture of the duality described here.)
Appleton always seems to find the right words to verbalize her feelings, especially in regard to love and friendship. Natalie Appleton also has a keen sense of beauty and she probably appreciates art, music or poetry.
