Perdita Macpherson Schaffner
Perdita Macpherson Schaffner's fundamental needs, values, and orientation towards life are symbolized by the four astrological elements. Each person has their own unique balance of these four basic energies: fire (warmth, inspiration, enthusiasm), earth (practicality, realism, material interests), air (social and intellectual qualities), and water (emotional needs and feelings).
Schaffner's "elemental make-up" is described below. Remember that most people are "unbalanced" or lopsided, and if Perdita is lacking or deficient in a certain element (or elements), it simply means that she needs to consciously develop that particular aspect in order to appreciate and/or work harder in that dimension of life.
Sometimes we overestimate the element that we are least endowed with, sensing it as a lack within ourselves, but more often we neglect or ignore it. The qualities described below will be reiterated and explained in more detail in the following pages.
She is often so enthusiastically involved in her projects and intent on achieving results that Perdita Macpherson Schaffner does not take sufficient time to reflect and gain an objective sense of what she is doing. Furthermore, she is apt to override or ignore anyone who raises reasonable questions about what she is doing. Schaffner rarely asks for advice or seeks feedback.
Cooperating and learning how to give and take in relationships between equals does not come easily to Perdita, and she is more comfortable in relationships where one person is clearly more dominant (chief-subordinate, teacher-pupil, parent-child, etc.). Perdita Macpherson Schaffner also has trouble understanding and communicating with people whose interests and approach toward life differ from her own because she tends to view differences as a conflict or threat.
Perdita Macpherson Schaffner needs to develop the capacity to appreciate differences and to see herself objectively.
Although she is energetic and confident, as described above, Perdita Macpherson Schaffner also expresses herself with a lot of feeling and sensitivity, as described in greater detail in the next chapter. Perdita Macpherson Schaffner appears less cocksure and narcissistic than she actually is.
