Although Catherine Labouré seems accommodating, obliging, amiable and willing to compromise (as described on the previous page), she can also be enormously stubborn and immovable, as discussed below. Saint Catherine has such a pleasant demeanor that she is able to use a combination of charm and bullying to get what she wants. She is an excellent negotiator.
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 Saint Catherine Labouré's course is set, she pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway her from her purpose.
Catherine Labouré 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 Catherine Labouré 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, Saint Catherine Labouré can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Catherine Labouré 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. Catherine Labouré 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 Saint Catherine Labouré for support. Though she hates upheaval and sudden changes, Catherine Labouré usually maintains her poise and equanimity. Catherine Labouré 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".
Saint Catherine 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 Saint Catherine Labouré's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Catherine Labouré lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open her mind to new horizons.
Catherine Labouré invests a tremendous amount of her creative energy into her relationships with others, particularly her marriage or other close partnerships. Saint Catherine feels that she needs others in order to be all that she can be, and she is disinclined to solitary activities and endeavors.
Working with people on a one-to-one basis to promote mutual understanding, harmony, and satisfaction is an area in which Catherine Labouré can really excel. Counseling or negotiating are talents of hers.
Catherine Labouré tends to see things from her perspective only and to be rather subjective. She also enjoys talking and expressing her views but does not always listen as well. Catherine Labouré has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Her conscious intentions and goals are frequently opposed by her unconscious beliefs and desires. If Catherine Labouré overrides her instincts and emotions because they seem to lead her in a direction diametrically opposed to the one she consciously desires, her emotions can become unruly. Poor relationships with women and/or difficulties in close one-on-one relationships are also a reflection of this tendency. However, if Catherine Labouré attends to her emotional urges and feelings and listens to the voice of her intuition, dreams and gut feelings, she will derive greater satisfaction from a more balanced life.
Saint Catherine has lofty aspirations but does not struggle or labor to achieve them. Her self-confidence and inner harmony attract success and benefit her in an almost magical way. Her optimism and cheerful generosity also win Saint Catherine Labouré many allies and successes in life.
Catherine Labouré undergoes deep, transformative changes in her life with relative ease and a minimum of conscious resistance. Because she does not avoid the depths, Saint Catherine Labouré has access to a lot of personal power and strength. Without realizing it or seeking it, Saint Catherine is apt to have quite a potent effect on the people she comes into contact with, even superficially. Others sense that Catherine Labouré is a force to be reckoned with.
Saint Catherine Labouré seems to lack self-confidence and has a sense of anxiety and insecurity that has no obvious cause. Catherine Labouré tends to withdraw and her outlook in general could be a bit too negative. Catherine Labouré should beware of letting her emotional tension react to her physical well-being.
Her physique tends to be sensitive and her vitality may be a bit low. Catherine Labouré is very impressionable and somewhat unrealistic. Sometimes her idealism could be confused or impractical, and Saint Catherine Labouré can be rebellious or else apathetic.
