Although Rosario Dawson is quite proud and likes to show off and impress other people with her accomplishments and appearance (as described on the previous page) - she is really quite practical, solid, and down to earth (as discussed below). Because of this, she is likely to actually earn the right to be admired - that is, to have actually done something to be proud of.
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 Dawson's course is set, she pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway her from her purpose.
Rosario Dawson 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 Rosario Dawson 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, Dawson can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Rosario Dawson 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. Rosario Dawson 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 Dawson for support. Though she hates upheaval and sudden changes, Rosario Dawson usually maintains her poise and equanimity. Rosario Dawson 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".
Rosario 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 Dawson's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Rosario Dawson lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open her mind to new horizons.
Her career, reputation and public image are very important to Dawson. Rosario Dawson has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. She is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Rosario Dawson may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
There is an ongoing, subtle conflict within Rosario Dawson between her conscious attitudes and aspirations and her deeper emotional and subconscious beliefs, needs and feelings. This creates considerable inner stress and sometimes paralyzing indecision, mostly due to the fact that Rosario may be trying to follow a path that is at odds with her subconscious desires. Chronic tightness or tension in her body may well be a signal that Rosario Dawson is denying or suppressing the messages from her subconscious or emotional self.
Ideally, Rosario Dawson will learn to accept and express these two different sides of herself. Should she fail to do so, Dawson is likely to be drawn into many relationships with people who reflect her denied or repressed qualities and seem to make her life difficult. (Also read chapter 4 in order to get a better picture of the duality described here.)
If she follows her true nature, her life is apt to be unconventional, unusual, controversial and full of insecurity and excitement. Rosario Dawson cannot and will not be forced into a pre-set mold, and Rosario finds it difficult to conform. Her offbeat interests and tastes lead Dawson to ventures that others may consider too "far-out" or experimental. Rosario Dawson has a very creative, inventive streak.
Rosario Dawson tends to be very impressionable and psychically open, and as a youngster, she may have been dominated in relationships with more forceful personalities. Afraid of confrontation, Dawson may have become passive, identified herself as a helpless victim, or tried to achieve her desires in underhanded ways.
Rosario's hypersensitivity to her environment is likely to be a challenge for her in other ways as well. Pollutants, ugliness or dissonance in any form may affect Rosario Dawson more than most people.
She is prone to fanaticism and cannot go halfway in anything she does. Her extremism may seem (and actually be) obsessive and somewhat blind. That is, Rosario Dawson does not always consciously understand why she feels as driven or intense about a given course of action as she does. There is a strong element of fate or inevitability in Dawson's life. A significant death or loss in her close relationships is likely to profoundly influence Rosario Dawson and shape important life decisions and she may consciously seek out intense, life-or-death experiences as well.
Emotionally, it could be difficult for Rosario Dawson to discern illusion from reality. She is impressionable and sympathetic toward others. However, Dawson tends to idealize others and could adopt a fantasy view of a wonderful marriage, causing disappointment later on.
Rosario Dawson has a sensitive physique, is impressionable and prone to external influences. Rosario should guard against the tendency to escape through drugs, alcohol etc. Her imagination is very vivid and Dawson is likely to dream of big things.
