drive and ambition
Catherine Labouré has a warrior's attitude - decisive, courageous, and bold. Saint Catherine tends to always crave action, even when waiting for an opportune moment or not doing anything at all would actually be effective in the long-term. She absolutely cannot tolerate being passive or even patient about getting what she wants. Catherine Labouré feels that it is up to her to take the initiative and she pursues her goal or desire very aggressively.
She is also self-reliant, in that she does not depend on others to do things for her or help her along, and Catherine Labouré is often irritated when other people offer advice or direction. Cooperation rarely comes easily to her. She is willful and can be quite oblivious to others' desires or feelings when she is pursuing something she wants. She is highly competitive, enjoys a challenge or a good fight, and may be downright pugnacious at times. Abounding in energy and enthusiasm at the start of a new venture, Catherine Labouré needs a very positive response and encouragement in order to sustain her interest throughout. If a project is not successful from the start, she is liable to drop it and move on to something else rather than rework or refine it. She has a strong desire to blaze new trails and put her own twist to things. Saint Catherine Labouré can discover, invent and initiate new things, but she is impatient and may lack the stamina and perseverance needed see a long-term project through.
Catherine Labouré expects to work hard for anything she accomplishes and she has no patience for people who do not pull their own weight. Work is a passion for Saint Catherine at times, and she pushes herself too hard. Saint Catherine Labouré can also be too demanding of the people she works with.
If her energy is not invested in a job or career, Catherine Labouré can become fanatical about her health, and may exercise or "work out" vigorously and perhaps excessively.
Catherine Labouré struggles with feelings of discouragement, self-doubt, and the sense that life is a constant uphill battle. She is also prone to suppressing her feelings - especially aggressive or angry ones. This could lead to chronic resentment and bitterness, which actually undermines Saint Catherine Labouré's goal far more than openly expressing her anger would.
On the positive side, Catherine Labouré is capable of immense patience, endurance and tireless effort in order to attain her goals and desires. Catherine Labouré seems to have to work very hard, and without much outside help. However, if she can avoid a negative attitude and keep "plugging along", Saint Catherine Labouré will achieve something substantial. Moreover, she is much more effective when working for someone else.
Although she is patient and steady when pursuing an objective, when Catherine Labouré finally loses patience she loses it completely! In addition to having great tenacity and perseverance, Saint Catherine has a daring and rebellious side as well:
Catherine Labouré seeks out risky and even dangerous activities, primarily for the excitement they provide. Impulsive, daring, impatient and unconventional, Catherine Labouré cannot sit still for very long and she has no capacity for "doing things as they have always been done". She is a defiant and independent person who can go it alone if need be. Saint Catherine Labouré can be extremely bossy and pushy and is prone to sudden, erratic outbursts, especially when she has to wait for what she wants. Courage and a taste for the unorthodox or outrageous are Saint Catherine Labouré's strengths.
She is able to see her objectives in life very clearly and wants to create her own good fortune. Quite energetic, Catherine Labouré may want to express herself creatively. Inviting good cooperation with others, she is likely to achieve much popularity.
She may be able to sustain a great deal of tension over a long period of time, but then Catherine Labouré suddenly releases it by taking unexpected and very radical actions. Saint Catherine Labouré is not above challenging others for a decisive fight!
Catherine Labouré really wants to leave her mark on the world in some way, to achieve stature and recognition for her contributions, and she is not willing to take a back seat - at least not for very long. In order to achieve her aims, though, Catherine Labouré will have to compromise and "give" more than she may be willing to. Thus, conflicts with others, particularly important men in her life, may arise. To accomplish her goals, Saint Catherine may have to set aside some of her self-centeredness, and learn from these men! However, Catherine Labouré may also be required at some point to make a break in order to hold her own and fulfill her own destiny.
She may have to overcome something in her background or personal past in order to achieve her long-range goals and ambitions. Sometimes Catherine Labouré may feel pulled in two different directions - what others expect of her or what she needs to do in order to progress versus what her old conditioning or her emotional predisposition would have her do. Overcoming the pull of the past is the key.
In order to achieve her long-range goals and ambitions, the process must be interesting and mentally stimulating, as Saint Catherine Labouré gets bored with work that is not intellectually challenging. Catherine Labouré needs variety and social stimulation as well. One problem she may have is saying the wrong thing at the wrong time, or to the wrong person. Saint Catherine needs to watch her words. At time, her tongue or even sense of humor can get Catherine Labouré in trouble with superiors.
Saint Catherine very much wants to be in a position to be able to positively influence and help many people. However, she may believe that she has to sacrifice her idealism or convictions in order to achieve her ambitions. At times her desire for prominence, popularity or stature may make Catherine Labouré do things that put her in a dubious position vis-ŕ-vis her superiors.
Her mind and emotions work together harmoniously and her ability to convince and lead others stems from her deepest inner self. Catherine Labouré is an independent thinker who forms her own judgments and opinions. In relationships, Saint Catherine Labouré seeks out people with whom she can feel a soul-link.
