In addition to having an independent spirit, as described in the previous chapter, Sade is also objective, pragmatic and quite ambitious. She is likely to work her way to the top of the ladder in some corporation, academic community or the like through her astute strategies combined with her willingness to take risks. Sade aims to be the authority, the one in charge. At times her impulsiveness may be at odds with her conservative, responsible side (which is discussed below). Sade Adu could experience ongoing internal tension between pleasing herself and acting spontaneously versus doing what she needs to do to get ahead and realize her long-range ambitions.
Serious, disciplined and quietly ambitious, she is driven to prove herself and to achieve material accomplishments and success. Her work, her position in the world, and her contributions to society are very important to Sade Adu. Sade will persevere through enormous hardship and frustration in order to reach a goal she has set for herself, and she often sacrifices much in the area of personal relationships and home life in order to do so.
Sade has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show her inner feelings and needs. Sade seems to always be in control, capable, efficient and strong. She is often the person in the family or group who is given more responsibility (and more work) than the others. She is highly conscientious and even as a child she possessed great maturity, soberness, and worldly wisdom.
She is basically a pragmatic realist, and though she may have all sorts of dreams, ideals and colorful theories, she feels that the ultimate test of a concept is its practical usefulness. Sade has an innate shrewdness and business sense, and there is a bit of the cynic in her as well.
She is clear-headed, detached and objective, and is not swayed by emotional dramatics. She is often authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. Sade has a great respect for tradition and even if she does not agree with certain laws, she will abide by them or strive to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Cautious and conservative, Sade plays by the rules.
She is subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to get to know intimately, and never superficial. She is a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving herself (and others) permission to feel, play, be spontaneous and silly, and sometimes weak and vulnerable is not easy for Sade Adu.
Sade Adu's strong points are her depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. Her faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
Her career, reputation and public image are very important to Sade Adu. Sade 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. Sade may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Sade often feels that she is at cross purposes with herself, for her conscious intentions and desires conflict with her subconscious emotional needs and drives. She is torn in two different directions. Sade has difficulty satisfying both her need to be an individual and her need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Sade sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to her or what Sade really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
She is a positive, vital, energetic and active go-getter. She enjoys competition, and her initiative and self-confidence make Sade a winner.
Her life is apt to be blessed with more than her share of helpful friends, fortuitous relationships, and doors opening up to her at just the right time. Because Sade is usually willing to share and to give back to others in a generous way, she continues to generate success in her life no matter how unfortunate prevailing circumstances are. Sade should beware, however, of becoming an opportunist.
Sade Adu always seems to find the right words to verbalize her feelings, especially in regard to love and friendship. Sade also has a keen sense of beauty and she probably appreciates art, music or poetry.
Appearing successful and attractive to the public is important to her. Sade probably enjoys wearing stylish clothes and modern jewelry. She tends to seek admiration from others and social acceptance is necessary to Sade's well-being.
Sade Adu depends a great deal on other people's reactions to her and rarely acts until she sees how she affects others. Sade must learn to be direct and straightforward, rather than evasive or manipulative. Sade should also learn to rely heavily on her hunches.
