approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Selena's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Selena comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Selena - her real motivation, which describes the kind of person she is at heart and where her true priorities lie. Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Selena" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Selena a little better. This page describes the disguise Selena wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Selena appears gentle and soft, and she acts rather reserved with others until she knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. Selena has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: her heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for her. Selena tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Selena.
Selena approaches life emotionally and subjectively and she is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around her. Instinctive and non-rational, Selena is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for her actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
Her emotions and personal loyalties tend to color Selena's thoughts and opinions. She views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach herself from her own personal bias and prejudices. She is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects her and those dear and close to her, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, she may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for Selena and her near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for her and her near and dear ones, it is no good.
She is tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those she cares about, and has a very strong nurturing, paternal nature. Selena empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Selena is often the one that others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.
Her moods fluctuate and change frequently and she is sometimes open and sometimes withdrawn emotionally. Selena communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Selena never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
Despite the fact that her core self is quite distinct from the face the world generally sees, Selena has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant impact on people in her environment. She may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Selena often does not get the full recognition she yearns for.
She may come across as a bit scattered, nervous or restless, as if unable to sit still. Selena seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Selena tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind soothing.
There is an air of universal sympathy, gentleness and nonjudgmental acceptance about Selena which draws people in need to her. Because she has a good deal of intuitive insight or psychic perceptiveness, Selena is able to say or do just the right thing for them. Selena needs to beware of fostering dependency in those people, however.
Selena has penetrating insight into people and a keen eye and ear for the hidden, unspoken, behind-the-scenes facets of life. She may seem intense and make other people a bit uncomfortable at times. There is also a sexual quality in Selena's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
Selena has a big heart, is generous with her affections, and has a strong desire to take care of everyone around her. It is easy for Selena to establish personal contacts and relationships because of her ability to fully understand others.
Selena is cheerful, warm-hearted and social and she strives for a pleasant life. She likes to be seen in social circles and is charitable to her fellow man. It makes Selena happy to be involved in many relationships and she is very sympathetic toward everyone.
Selena seems to enjoy projecting a different image of herself to others, giving them a false impression of herself. She is inclined to associate with odd and peculiar people and is likely to have very strange romantic relationships.
