Because she is supportive and nurturing (as mentioned in the previous chapter), and also practical and well grounded (as described below), Pauline Ducruet is a great source of solace and emotional support for other people. Pauline Ducruet is actually more stable and solid than her rather mellow demeanor would suggest.
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 Ducruet's course is set, she pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway her from her purpose.
Pauline Ducruet 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 Pauline Ducruet 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, Ducruet can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Pauline Ducruet 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. Pauline Ducruet 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 Ducruet for support. Though she hates upheaval and sudden changes, Pauline Ducruet usually maintains her poise and equanimity. Pauline Ducruet 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".
Pauline 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 Ducruet's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Pauline Ducruet 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 Ducruet. Pauline Ducruet 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. Pauline Ducruet may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Pauline Ducruet 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. Pauline Ducruet has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Pauline Ducruet aims high, dreams big, and has a tremendous sense of what she is capable of achieving. Overconfidence, grandiosity, lack of humility and/or extreme discontent in modest circumstances may be her faults. Generally, however, Ducruet's great expectations and enterprising spirit lead to success. Business, especially when there is an element of risk and speculation involved, is ideally suited to Pauline.
However she also has a more somber side, which keeps Ducruet's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Pauline Ducruet tends to seesaw between her faith, vision and high aspirations, and her caution and realism (or fear!). She cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and she accepts the need for hard work. Her skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
Pauline Ducruet has a healthy amount of self-control and self-discipline. Ducruet also radiates a rather responsible, trustworthy, solid feeling about herself which will win her the confidence of others, especially her superiors.
Both sensitive and sensuous, Pauline blends charm and energy. Pauline Ducruet has a healthy sexuality and a good balance between activity and passivity. She may be fond of singing, dancing, music and drama. Romance comes easily to Pauline, and her romantic relationships are passionate.
