Ruth St. Denis
Although Ruth St. Denis comes across in a very gracious, tactful and considerate manner (as described on the previous page), she also holds some very definite points of view. Others may be surprised when they get to know Ruth and recognize her willfulness and strong opinions.
She is a freedom-loving, strong-willed and independent-minded individual, and she insists upon living her own life as she sees fit, even if it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, Ruth St. Denis cannot be owned or possessed, and while she is willing to share herself with another, she does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, St. Denis can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Ruth has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and she tries to abide by them; however, her ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. Ruth St. Denis probably dislikes sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
She is fair, intelligent, objective and rational and she often let her head rule rather than her heart. Ruth St. Denis seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because she is capable of putting aside her personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Ruth makes up her mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade her, and she can be rather dogmatic.
Ruth St. Denis thinks in broad terms and is concerned with the world beyond her own personal sphere - her town, nation, or even planet. She is likely to become involved in, or show a keen interest in, community endeavors, social organizations and groups of all kinds. She enjoys being part of a group endeavor, and she often assumes the role of organizing, managing or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, she harbors great hopes for the future. Ruth St. Denis stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Ruth St. Denis was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Ruth has an experimental mind and is attracted to novelty.
Her strong points include her concern for human welfare and social betterment, her sense of fairness and democratic spirit, and her vision. Her faults are her stubbornness and inflexibility, and a tendency to be very obtuse and insensitive when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
She is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Ruth St. Denis prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
St. Denis invests a lot of her creative energy into her home, family relationships, and her inner life.
At times Ruth St. Denis may feel an uncontrollable urge to radically alter her direction in life, or to act in ways that seem eccentric or at least highly uncharacteristic of her. When her life is becoming too predictable, Ruth may do something to upset the status quo, sometimes without realizing why or how she is doing this. These impulses may seem at odds with her conscious intent and desires for herself, and can be unsettling. However, there is a streak of unconventionality and creative genius in Ruth St. Denis which needs to be expressed now and then.
Ruth 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. Ruth St. Denis is also drawn to mysticism and she has deep spiritual aspirations and yearnings. Gentle and peace loving, St. Denis 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.
St. Denis depends a great deal on other people's reactions to her and rarely acts until she sees how she affects others. Ruth St. Denis must learn to be direct and straightforward, rather than evasive or manipulative. Ruth should also learn to rely heavily on her hunches.
