drive and ambition
She is a perfectionist and has high standards for her own work. Phoebe Cates often feels that if she wants something done right she must do it herself, for others do not do as thorough a job as she does. Doing a task well is very important to her, and she may labor over minute details that others would not bother with. Phoebe Cates strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and she becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Phoebe Cates can become so much of a perfectionist and so self-critical that she will not even attempt many activities and projects, feeling that her efforts will simply not be good enough. She is usually modest and realistic in assessing what she can accomplish and, if anything, Phoebe Cates underestimates herself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Cates does apply herself diligently in a given area, she gradually gains self-confidence as she masters skills and develops expertise.
Phoebe Cates conserves her energy and paces herself so that she does not waste or diffuse her efforts. An unwillingness to take risks or venture from the beaten track can sometimes limit her opportunities. In short, Cates may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.
Asserting herself and being direct and forceful about what she wants is often very difficult for Phoebe. Though she may have a great deal of energy and drive, Phoebe Cates lacks confidence or simply the desire to put herself and her interests first. On the positive side, Cates can be very unselfish, working more for the benefit of others than for herself.
However, Phoebe Cates denies her own desires and needs too much, and she is likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage her finest efforts.
Cates frequently meets a tremendous amount of resistance whenever she wants to assert herself in a decisive way or do something just for herself. This resistance stems from within (in the form of self-doubt, fear, or a heavy sense of responsibility toward others), as well as from practical and circumstantial limitations. Especially when initiating a project or acting independently, Phoebe Cates may tell herself that she is not really prepared, or that she is not good enough (yet), and she puts a lot of pressure on herself. Despite the obstacles, setbacks or lack of support she encounters, Phoebe Cates can accomplish a great deal with patience and perseverance. However, she is apt to aim too low and not realize how much she is truly capable of.
Phoebe Cates should try to recognize that she does not have to justify her existence or prove her worth through her accomplishments.
Phoebe has great courage and relentless energy to do whatever she sets her mind to. But she is inclined to want her own way and has a tendency to manipulate others. Because of her foolhardy actions at times, Phoebe Cates is also prone to accidents.
Phoebe has the patience and the stamina to realize her visions and bring them down to earth, a fine balance between hard work and realism, and a positive, hopeful spirit. Phoebe Cates grows by adhering to systems and plans, and taking one step at a time. Overnight success or instant enlightenment is not what Cates aims for. Her patient, well-balanced approach gives Phoebe Cates credibility with many different types of people, and she is likely to acquire an excellent reputation for being able to do big things without overreaching or becoming pretentious.
Cates achieves her objectives and ambitions in life through her personal charm, attractiveness and ability to please others visually and/or emotionally. A career in the arts or entertainment world is possible for Phoebe Cates. Anything involving sales or promotion, particularly of beautiful or luxurious items, is an area she can flourish in. Vanity or indiscretions in relationships could lead Phoebe Cates to her downfall.
Phoebe Cates has a spiritual gift or vocation that colors her personal ambitions and drive for achievement. Helping people or serving the Whole is part of her role in life. Music, the arts, entertainment, and/or imagery, visualization or imagination may all be aspects of Phoebe's endeavor in the world.
Phoebe has an aptitude for detective or research work, or any field that involves digging beneath the surface for the hidden elements. An interest in psychology, hypnosis and subconscious forces or subliminal messages may well be a key factor in her career.
Whatever her choice of profession, Phoebe Cates is apt to feel a sense of inner mission about it and may pursue it with great zeal and intensity.
