At heart she is quite different from what her exuberant, freewheeling manner (described in the previous chapter) would suggest. Although Princess Diana gets restless and like to move around, home is also very important to her, and she craves security and familiarity (as described in more detail below). At times she may feel torn between her craving for the comfortable and familiar versus a taste for the foreign and the unknown. Spencer will need to find a place in her life for these two contradictory impulses.
Diana has powerful emotional attachments to the past, her family, her childhood, places she associates with safety and security, and her beginnings. It is very important to Spencer to maintain a connection with her roots and heritage and keep family bonds strong. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, Spencer tends to cling to whatever is dear to her - be it a person, a familiar place, or a cherished possession.
She is sympathetic, nurturing, supportive and very sensitive to the emotional needs of other people. Diana likes to be needed and to care for others, and she often worries about the people she loves. Princess Diana has a very strong need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, and much of her life centers on her home. She is more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society. Kindness, consideration and tenderness are more meaningful to Princess Diana than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
She is primarily emotional and her views are often dominated by her feelings and her own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic or abstract principles. It is difficult for her to judge situations fairly and objectively because her personal sympathies and loyalties usually factor in. Princess Diana takes things very personally and sometimes builds a wall around herself to shield herself from pain and rejection. Princess Diana feels rather shy and vulnerable at heart. She also tends to be moody and experiences frequent mood swings. Princess Diana needs to have a place and time in her life to withdraw, introspect, dream and replenish herself; otherwise Princess Diana becomes cranky and unhappy with those around her.
Princess Diana functions in an instinctive, irrational manner and likes to immerse herself in creative activities where she can express her feelings, imagination and instincts. Spencer often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Princess Diana also has a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
Her compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are Spencer's strong points. Her faults include an inability to let go of the past and move forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency for self-pity when facing hardship.
Princess Diana invests a tremendous amount of her creative energy into her relationships with others, particularly her marriage or other close partnerships. Diana feels that she needs others in order to be all that she can be, and she is disinclined to solitary activities and endeavors.
Working with people on a one-to-one basis to bring about mutual understanding, harmony, and satisfaction is an area in which Princess Diana can really excel. Counseling or negotiating are talents of hers.
Princess Diana 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. Princess Diana has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
She is imaginative and sensitive to anything colorful, beautiful or magical. She is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, music and mysticism. Her spiritual values color Diana's whole perspective and approach to life. She is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
Princess Diana undergoes deep, transformative changes in her life with relative ease and a minimum of conscious resistance. Because she does not avoid the depths, Spencer has access to a lot of personal power and strength. Without realizing it or seeking it, Diana is apt to have quite a potent effect on the people she comes into contact with, even superficially. Others sense that Princess Diana is a force to be reckoned with.
She is somewhat excitable and quickly aroused. Princess Diana could be a little self-centered, but at the same time also magnetic. Diana likes to flirt and tends to fall in love at first sight, but she then transfers her affections to someone else for no apparent reason.
