Although Rita Coolidge often appears self-controlled, disciplined, and even somewhat of an ascetic (as described on the previous page), there is also a pleasure-loving sensualist in her that thoroughly enjoys "the good life". She may sometimes feel torn between saving her hard-earned money and conserving her resources versus indulging herself and appeasing her appetite for pleasure and beauty.
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 Coolidge's course is set, she pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway her from her purpose.
Rita Coolidge 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 Rita Coolidge 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, Coolidge can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Rita Coolidge 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. Rita Coolidge 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 Coolidge for support. Though she hates upheaval and sudden changes, Rita Coolidge usually maintains her poise and equanimity. Rita Coolidge 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".
Rita 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 Coolidge's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Rita Coolidge lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open her mind to new horizons.
She is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Rita Coolidge prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Coolidge invests a lot of her creative energy into her home, family relationships, and inner life.
Rita Coolidge has a healthy amount of self-control and self-discipline. Coolidge also radiates a rather responsible, trustworthy, solid feeling about herself which will win her the confidence of others, especially her superiors.
She is intensely willful, zealous, and fanatical though Rita often hides the intensity of her feelings and her personal motives and desires. Coolidge is infatuated with power and has an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition and the desire to be "somebody". Rita Coolidge tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma and often seeks to emulate them. Rita Coolidge both fears, and is intensely fascinated with, death and the hidden, secret, dark side of life.
