Even though she is emotionally intense and can be somewhat of a pressure cooker at times (as described on the previous page), Sandy Dennis is very grounded and stable at heart, as described in more detail below. Her essentially sensible, practical nature enables Sandy Dennis to direct some of her powerful feelings and drives into productive channels.
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 Dennis' course is set, she pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway her from her purpose.
Sandy Dennis 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 Sandy Dennis 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, Dennis can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Sandy Dennis 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. Sandy Dennis 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 Dennis for support. Though she hates upheaval and sudden changes, Sandy Dennis usually maintains her poise and equanimity. Sandy Dennis 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".
Sandy 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 Dennis' tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Sandy Dennis lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open her mind to new horizons.
Sandy Dennis invests a tremendous amount of her creative energy into her relationships with others, particularly her marriage or other close partnerships. Sandy 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 bring about mutual understanding, harmony, and satisfaction is an area in which Sandy Dennis can really excel. Counseling or negotiating are talents of hers.
Sandy Dennis tends to struggle with how to assert her will and she gets what she wants in life in a way that she can feel good about. Dennis may be unsure about when to use force and take decisive action, and she may occasionally become inappropriately aggressive or pushy. Sandy Dennis may also disapprove of her own anger, competitiveness, or aggressive impulses - and thus have difficulty accessing her personal power. Learning to accept and express her "masculine" or "yang" qualities in a positive manner is a challenge for Dennis.
Innovative, original, unorthodox and unconventional, she identifies with the role of a rebel, reformer or iconoclast. Sandy Dennis insists upon a great deal of personal freedom and does not easily adapt to others' needs and wishes. Sandy needs a lifestyle that allows her to be spontaneous. She often feels that she is somehow different from other people and outside of society's mainstream.
Dennis always seems to find the right words to verbalize her feelings, especially in regard to love and friendship. Sandy Dennis also has a keen sense of beauty and she probably appreciates art, music or poetry.
