Her pleasant manner and desire to relate harmoniously with others (as discussed in chapter 2), combined with her idealism, receptivity, and impressionability (as discussed below), make Rosa Bonheur very self-sacrificing and willing to go the extra mile for someone else's sake. Rosa Bonheur has to be wary of her tendency to lack discrimination in her charitable endeavors. She should also avoid trying to help those who are incorrigible. Moreover, she should not be afraid of confrontation. She is inclined to hide her thoughts and feelings, make excuses and even lie, often just to avoid a person or an issue. Rosa Bonheur should strive to be honest in her communications, which will also help her to be honest with herself. If she channels her energies well, Bonheur can be a asset to others - be it on a professional level as a counselor, teacher, or consultant or on a personal day-to-day level.
At heart she is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of her imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Rosa Bonheur as anything in the outer world, though she may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting her inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, she has a rich inner life, though Bonheur may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Rosa Bonheur usually keeps to herself.
Rosa shows great sensitivity and empathy toward others and often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. She is tolerant, forgiving and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. Rosa has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and she often feels the pain of others as if it were her own. Rosa Bonheur sympathizes with the needy, the disadvantaged and the misfits of society. She is capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker or minister. However, Bonheur tends to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of her kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon her. Rosa has little sense of boundaries, or of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not her strong points.
She is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and she tries to avoid open conflict. Bonheur will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Bonheur tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. She is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Rosa Bonheur does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
Her gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for she possesses great sensitivity, inspiration and limitless imagination. Rosa Bonheur has a strong affinity for beauty and love.
Her faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than take strong, definite action to change her life for the better. She also tends to become so detached from her immediate environment that she lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around Bonheur more than it bothers her.
Her energies are directed to either perfecting her techniques, skills, and abilities in work, or in "perfecting", refining, and improving herself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. The urge to bring about a state of wholeness or optimal functioning is a strong motivation of Rosa Bonheur's, and she is quite a perfectionist!
Bonheur can easily become overly identified or involved with the function she performs, with her work, or with her own health and "growth process".
Inwardly she is zealous and fanatical, though she may hide her personal desires and intentions, as well as the intensity of her feelings. She is driven by a deep inner sense of destiny and mission and an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition. Rosa is infatuated with power, incredibly willful and stubbornly fixated on achieving greatness or being someone Special. Rosa Bonheur tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma, and she often seeks to emulate them. Rosa has potential for tremendous good or tremendous evil.
She is inclined to feel uncomfortable or restrained in some way in the presence of others and prefer to be alone. Rosa Bonheur is modest and shy in her approach to others and tends to accept more responsibility than she really needs to.
