Because she is supportive and nurturing (as mentioned in the previous chapter), and also practical and well grounded (as described below), Penélope Cruz is a great source of solace and emotional support for other people. Penélope Cruz 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 Cruz's course is set, she pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway her from her purpose.
Penélope Cruz 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 Penélope Cruz 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, Cruz can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Penélope Cruz 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. Penélope Cruz 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 Cruz for support. Though she hates upheaval and sudden changes, Penélope Cruz usually maintains her poise and equanimity. Penélope Cruz 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".
Penélope 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 Cruz's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Penélope Cruz 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 Cruz. Penélope Cruz 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. Penélope Cruz may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Cruz can be an inspiring leader of a team or group effort. Her dynamism and energy evokes the same in others, and she sees healthy competition between people as a plus. Generally, Penélope Cruz enjoys fine health as well.
Her life is apt to be blessed with more than her share of helpful friends, fortuitous relationships, and doors opening to her at just the right time. Because Penélope Cruz is usually willing to share and to give back to others in a generous way, she continues to generate successes in her life no matter how unfortunate prevailing circumstances are. Penélope should beware, however, of becoming an opportunist.
Along with her energy and drive, Penélope Cruz has high ideals and an active fantasy life. There is a dreamer and an idealist in Cruz, as well as a doer and a fighter. Penélope wants to win but not at the expense of others, and this may be somewhat of a dilemma for her.
Penélope Cruz tends to be very impressionable and psychically open, and as a youngster, she could have been dominated in her relationships with more forceful personalities. Afraid of confrontation, Cruz may have become passive, identified herself as a helpless victim, or tried to gain her desires in underhanded ways.
Penélope's hypersensitivity to her environment is apt to be a challenge for her in other ways as well. Pollutants, ugliness, or dissonance in any form is apt to affect Penélope Cruz more than most people.
Penélope Cruz feels physically strong and fit and has a healthy sex-life. Her actions are governed by a strong sense of honor and integrity. Cruz is ambitious with a talent for organizing and a strong desire to succeed, insuring by that her professional success.
Penélope Cruz has a sensitive physique, is impressionable and prone to external influences. Penélope should guard against the tendency to escape through drugs, alcohol etc. Her imagination is very vivid and Cruz is likely to dream of big things.
