Queen Silvia of Sweden
Her optimism and enthusiasm (mentioned in the previous chapter), is balanced by an innate objectivity, detachment, and pragmatic realism that usually keeps her idealistic ventures on a sound course. Though she appears confident and positive, Queen Silvia of Sweden is often quite skeptical and much more cautious than she lets on. And while it is true that Queen Silvia likes to play, she is also serious about her work and commitments.
Serious, disciplined and quietly ambitious, she is driven to prove herself and to achieve material accomplishments and success. Her work, her position in the world, and her contributions to society are very important to Queen Silvia. Queen Silvia of Sweden will persevere through enormous hardship and frustration in order to reach a goal she has set for herself, and she often sacrifices much in the area of personal relationships and home life in order to do so.
Queen Silvia of Sweden has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show her inner feelings and needs. Queen Silvia of Sweden seems to always be in control, capable, efficient and strong. She is often the person in the family or group who is given more responsibility (and more work) than the others. She is highly conscientious and even as a child she possessed great maturity, soberness, and worldly wisdom.
She is basically a pragmatic realist, and though she may have all sorts of dreams, ideals and colorful theories, she feels that the ultimate test of a concept is its practical usefulness. Queen Silvia has an innate shrewdness and business sense, and there is a bit of the cynic in her as well.
She is clear-headed, detached and objective, and is not swayed by emotional dramatics. She is often authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. Queen Silvia of Sweden has a great respect for tradition and even if she does not agree with certain laws, she will abide by them or strive to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Cautious and conservative, Queen Silvia of Sweden plays by the rules.
She is subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to get to know intimately, and never superficial. She is a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving herself (and others) permission to feel, play, be spontaneous and silly, and sometimes weak and vulnerable is not easy for Queen Silvia.
Queen Silvia's strong points are her depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. Her faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
Queen Silvia of Sweden has a clear sense of her own self and she therefore conveys a strong impression to others of who she is and what she wants. Assertive and self-motivated, Queen Silvia can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but she competes and often clashes with other strong individuals. Queen Silvia of Sweden feels a need to be in control of her own life and she can be too self-involved, too immersed in her own interests, and oblivious to others at times.
Queen Silvia has lofty aspirations but does not struggle or labor to achieve them. Her self-confidence and inner harmony attract success and benefit her in an almost magical way. Her optimism and cheerful generosity also win Queen Silvia many allies and successes in life.
Queen Silvia is extremely sensitive and imaginative, and she can get lost in her dreams, fantasies and visions. She is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, as well as to the world of color, beauty, and emotion. Queen Silvia of Sweden is also drawn to mysticism and she has deep spiritual aspirations and yearnings. Gentle and peace loving, Queen Silvia may lack the will and competitive spirit needed to make her way in the world. She is often impractical and may seek to avoid or escape the harsh realities of life.
