Although it may seem that she is just patiently plodding along, Sharon Mitchell is actually quite shrewd and has a clear purpose in mind. She is far more astute and ambitious than her rather gentle, forbearing manner (described in the previous chapter) would suggest.
Serious, disciplined and quietly ambitious, she is driven to prove herself and to achieve material accomplishments and success. Her work, her position in the world, and her contributions to society are very important to Mitchell. Sharon Mitchell will persevere through enormous hardship and frustration in order to reach a goal she has set for herself, and she often sacrifices much in the area of personal relationships and home life in order to do so.
Sharon Mitchell has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show her inner feelings and needs. Sharon Mitchell seems to always be in control, capable, efficient and strong. She is often the person in the family or group who is given more responsibility (and more work) than the others. She is highly conscientious and even as a child she possessed great maturity, soberness, and worldly wisdom.
She is basically a pragmatic realist, and though she may have all sorts of dreams, ideals and colorful theories, she feels that the ultimate test of a concept is its practical usefulness. Sharon has an innate shrewdness and business sense, and there is a bit of the cynic in her as well.
She is clear-headed, detached and objective, and is not swayed by emotional dramatics. She is often authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. Sharon Mitchell has a great respect for tradition and even if she does not agree with certain laws, she will abide by them or strive to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Cautious and conservative, Sharon Mitchell plays by the rules.
She is subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to get to know intimately, and never superficial. She is a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving herself (and others) permission to feel, play, be spontaneous and silly, and sometimes weak and vulnerable is not easy for Mitchell.
Mitchell's strong points are her depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. Her faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
Her career, reputation and public image are very important to Mitchell. Sharon Mitchell has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. She is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Sharon Mitchell may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Mitchell's subconscious needs and feelings blend well with her conscious intentions and desires, therefore Sharon Mitchell is able to proceed with her life's pursuits relatively unhampered by internal resistance or inconsistency. Sharon's male-female relationships will also reflect this state of internal harmony.
Mitchell occasionally gambles, splurges or overextends herself in ways that may be at odds with her usual way of doing things. Exaggerating her accomplishments or spending too much in order to impress others and build up her own self-esteem can be a problem. However, Sharon Mitchell also has faith and an optimistic side, which enable her to recover from the negative consequences of her excesses, and to learn from them.
However she also has a more somber side, which keeps Mitchell's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Sharon Mitchell tends to seesaw between her faith, vision and high aspirations, and her caution and realism (or fear!). She cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and she accepts the need for hard work. Her skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
Sharon Mitchell has a healthy amount of self-control and self-discipline. Mitchell also radiates a rather responsible, trustworthy, solid feeling about herself which will win her the confidence of others, especially her superiors.
Although she takes herself and her responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of Sharon Mitchell that rebels against rules and restrictions and the need to contend with outside authority. Mitchell can feel torn between conforming to the rules or fulfilling her obligations, and breaking free of them. Her wilder side will now be described.
If she follows her true nature, her life is apt to be unconventional, unusual, controversial and full of insecurity and excitement. Sharon Mitchell cannot and will not be forced into a pre-set mold, and Sharon finds it difficult to conform. Her offbeat interests and tastes lead Mitchell to ventures that others may consider too "far-out" or experimental. Sharon Mitchell has a very creative, inventive streak.
While she is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Sharon Mitchell also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
Sharon is extremely sensitive and imaginative, and she can get lost in her dreams, fantasies and visions. She is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, as well as to the world of color, beauty, and emotion. Sharon Mitchell is also drawn to mysticism and she has deep spiritual aspirations and yearnings. Gentle and peace loving, Mitchell may lack the will and competitive spirit needed to make her way in the world. She is often impractical and may seek to avoid or escape the harsh realities of life.
She is prone to fanaticism and cannot go halfway in anything she does. Her extremism may seem (and actually be) obsessive and somewhat blind. That is, Sharon Mitchell does not always consciously understand why she feels as driven or intense about a given course of action as she does. There is a strong element of fate or inevitability in Mitchell's life. A significant death or loss in her close relationships is likely to profoundly influence Sharon Mitchell and shape important life decisions and she may consciously seek out intense, life-or-death experiences as well.
