Selma Blair seems much more objective, unemotional and matter-of-fact than she really is. Despite her fussiness and perfectionism (described in the previous chapter), she is actually very caring and loving. Selma Blair needs to make sure to openly express her feelings because otherwise, others do not realize how much she cares about them.
Selma has powerful emotional attachments to the past, her family, her childhood, places she associates with safety and security, and her beginnings. It is very important to Blair to maintain a connection with her roots and heritage and keep family bonds strong. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, Blair tends to cling to whatever is dear to her - be it a person, a familiar place, or a cherished possession.
She is sympathetic, nurturing, supportive and very sensitive to the emotional needs of other people. Selma likes to be needed and to care for others, and she often worries about the people she loves. Selma Blair has a very strong need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, and much of her life centers on her home. She is more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society. Kindness, consideration and tenderness are more meaningful to Selma Blair than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
She is primarily emotional and her views are often dominated by her feelings and her own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic or abstract principles. It is difficult for her to judge situations fairly and objectively because her personal sympathies and loyalties usually factor in. Selma Blair takes things very personally and sometimes builds a wall around herself to shield herself from pain and rejection. Selma Blair feels rather shy and vulnerable at heart. She also tends to be moody and experiences frequent mood swings. Selma Blair needs to have a place and time in her life to withdraw, introspect, dream and replenish herself; otherwise Selma Blair becomes cranky and unhappy with those around her.
Selma Blair functions in an instinctive, irrational manner and likes to immerse herself in creative activities where she can express her feelings, imagination and instincts. Blair often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Selma Blair also has a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
Her compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are Blair's strong points. Her faults include an inability to let go of the past and move forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency for self-pity when facing hardship.
Her career, reputation, and public image are very important to Blair. Selma Blair has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy her; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Selma Blair may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Selma Blair aims high, dreams big, and has a tremendous sense of what she is capable of achieving. Overconfidence, grandiosity, lack of humility and/or extreme discontent in modest circumstances may be her faults. Generally, however, Blair's great expectations and enterprising spirit lead to success. Business, especially when there is an element of risk and speculation involved, is ideally suited to Selma.
Selma Blair tends to be very impressionable and psychically open, and as a youngster, she could have been dominated in her relationships with more forceful personalities. Afraid of confrontation, Blair may have become passive, identified herself as a helpless victim, or tried to gain her desires in underhanded ways.
Selma's hypersensitivity to her environment is apt to be a challenge for her in other ways as well. Pollutants, ugliness, or dissonance in any form is apt to affect Selma Blair more than most people.
She is intensely willful, zealous, and fanatical though Selma often hides the intensity of her feelings and her personal motives and desires. Blair is infatuated with power and has an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition and the desire to be "somebody". Selma Blair tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma and often seeks to emulate them. Selma Blair both fears, and is intensely fascinated with, death and the hidden, secret, dark side of life.
Blair is very thorough and takes her time thinking things through. She enjoys games that require a lot of concentration and thought, like chess for example. Selma Blair also could find traveling very rewarding.
