drive and ambition
She is a perfectionist and has high standards for her own work. Rose Bird often feels that if she wants something done right she must do it herself, for others do not do as thorough a job as she does. Doing a task well is very important to her, and she may labor over minute details that others would not bother with. Rose Bird strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and she becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Rose Bird can become so much of a perfectionist and so self-critical that she will not even attempt many activities and projects, feeling that her efforts will simply not be good enough. She is usually modest and realistic in assessing what she can accomplish and, if anything, Rose Bird underestimates herself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Bird does apply herself diligently in a given area, she gradually gains self-confidence as she masters skills and develops expertise.
Rose Bird conserves her energy and paces herself so that she does not waste or diffuse her efforts. An unwillingness to take risks or venture from the beaten track can sometimes limit her opportunities. In short, Bird may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.
Rose Bird meets numerous challenges and possibly defeats in pursuit of her goals and desires, and her setbacks often occur because Rose has been too rash or intent on working her own will regardless of the impact on others. Rose Bird is intense and passionate, and simply does not know when to stop sometimes! Recklessness with others can be a problem for Bird.
She is enterprising, ambitious and has a strong desire to succeed in a big way.

No matter how much Rose accomplishes, she never seems to be completely satisfied. Rose Bird always feels that she can do more, and sets her sights on another goal. Rose Bird feels frustrated in limited circumstances, and she will abandon secure and reasonably successful situations if they do not offer challenges and future growth potential. Bird likes to keep stretching her limits, to see how far she can go. Sometimes Bird overextends herself or promises more than she can actually achieve, due to an overly optimistic or confident assessment of her own capacities. Rose Bird relishes healthy competition and feels that it spurs her on to even greater achievements.
Her competitive drive and lofty ambitions (commented upon earlier) feed on either intense spiritual idealism or a rather inflated, grandiose idea of what Rose Bird can actually accomplish. Her energy level is apt to fluctuate from being very high, as noted earlier, to rather low, as mentioned in the following paragraphs.
Rose Bird has a very active and fertile imagination and Bird's ambitions are never strictly mundane, practical and concrete. Rose Bird has a strong desire to act out her fantasies, dreams, visions and ideals. Artistic creation, drama, or other areas in which Bird can express herself imaginatively are ideally suited to her. Ordinary life seems drab and uninteresting to Bird, and she needs to have some lofty dream or something grander than her own narrow personal interests to live for. Sometimes Bird may be confused about exactly how and where to direct her energy and she often drifts along rather than making clear decisions about what she wants. Rose Bird has a passive side and at times lacks the will power, physical energy, strength and fighting spirit to achieve her aims.
Positions of honor, affluence, influence, and stature in her community can be hers. Rose Bird feels she has a destiny which involves leadership or distinguishing herself in some line of endeavor. Rose possesses an innate sense of greatness or importance, and a strong drive to achieve recognition for her talent. Rose Bird should avoid excessive egotism and arrogant pride, for these could limit her opportunities.
In order to achieve her ambitions in life Rose Bird may well feels that she must make a significant break from her personal past, especially the influences of her childhood environment, her family relationships, or familial traditions. Bird is apt to be the black sheep, or the one who left home and never really returned.
