Although Natasha Richardson seems accommodating, obliging, amiable and willing to compromise (as described on the previous page), she can also be enormously stubborn and immovable, as discussed below. Natasha has such a pleasant demeanor that she is able to use a combination of charm and bullying to get what she wants. She is an excellent negotiator.
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 Richardson's course is set, she pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway her from her purpose.
Natasha Richardson 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 Natasha Richardson 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, Richardson can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Natasha Richardson 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. Natasha Richardson 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 Richardson for support. Though she hates upheaval and sudden changes, Natasha Richardson usually maintains her poise and equanimity. Natasha Richardson 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".
Natasha 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 Richardson's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Natasha Richardson lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open her mind to new horizons.
Natasha Richardson craves intense experiences and is attracted to aspects of life that are strange, unfathomable, or taboo. She may hide her interests or inclinations, except from those who know Natasha very intimately. Natasha Richardson is rarely content with herself and her life, and she has an inner urge to be continually going farther or deeper than her ever have before. Natasha has also a strong interest in social power and the role that money and economics play in people's lives.
There is an ongoing, subtle conflict within Natasha Richardson, 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 Natasha 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 Natasha Richardson is denying or suppressing the messages from her subconscious or emotional self.
Ideally, Natasha Richardson will learn to accept the two quite different aspects of her and to express both of them. If she cannot do this, Richardson 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.)
She is direct, energetic, sometimes aggressive and combative. Natasha Richardson often feels that she needs to fight to get what she wants, and she tends to have a "me-first" attitude that angers or irritates others. She is hasty, restless, impatient and sometimes reckless.
While Natasha Richardson does have a strong drive, she frequently holds herself back. One of her challenges lies in learning to endure frustration and to patiently overcome the obstacles in her life (or her own internal caution and resistance!).
She is often plagued by feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions and self-doubt. Natasha Richardson has a cautious, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to her obligations and duties. Natasha Richardson tends to work and struggle more than necessary and to take herself too seriously.
Richardson alternates between aggression and apathy and sometimes feels that she is unable to meet all the demands made on her. Once Natasha Richardson becomes aware of what she needs to do, however, she is capable of working long and hard, not giving up until her work is done.
