Shirley Temple's fundamental needs, values, and orientation towards life are symbolized by the four astrological elements. Each person has their own unique balance of these four basic energies: fire (warmth, inspiration, enthusiasm), earth (practicality, realism, material interests), air (social and intellectual qualities), and water (emotional needs and feelings).
Temple's "elemental make-up" is described below. Remember that most people are "unbalanced" or lopsided, and if Shirley is lacking or deficient in a certain element (or elements), it simply means that she needs to consciously develop that particular aspect in order to appreciate and/or work harder in that dimension of life.
Sometimes we overestimate the element that we are least endowed with, sensing it as a lack within ourselves, but more often we neglect or ignore it. The qualities described below will be reiterated and explained in more detail in the following pages.
She is a fiery individual, filled with tremendous passion and zest for life. Shirley thrives in situations where there is energy, excitement, action, movement, dynamism and drama. Along with her exuberant vitality and enthusiasm, Shirley Temple has an acute ability to visualize future possibilities, and an almost childlike faith in "what could be". Unless she has a vision, an aspiration, or a wonderful dream to believe in, Temple is not completely happy. Shirley Temple has a great sense of the majesty, grandeur and adventure of life, but tends to overlook the magic in small things and everyday life.
Shirley Temple also has a strong urge to express herself spontaneously and creatively, without conforming to others' ways or conventions. Personal freedom and independence are very important to Shirley and she resists being "owned" or dictated to. Temple is secretly apt to feel that she is special or charmed - somehow above or beyond the realm of "ordinary" people and mundane life.
Shirley Temple has a dominant ego and can be excessively proud, dominating, or concerned with herself. Shirley Temple has a positive, vigorous, active approach to life, and bringing her intentions and desires to the fore feels more natural to her than going with the flow or merely allowing life to unfold. Shirley Temple is essentially very "yang" (assertive, competitive, outgoing, direct), and the "yin" qualities of passive acceptance, receptivity, gentleness, and subtlety do not come easily to her. Shirley inspires others with her generous spirit, idealism, spark, confidence and joie de vivre, but she can also irritate them with her self-centeredness and insistence on expressing herself freely regardless of others' needs or opinions. Moreover, Shirley Temple has trouble being content in the present and would benefit by learning how to consciously pacify her restlessness and achieve the capacity for tranquility and peacefulness.
As described in chapter 3, Shirley Temple also possesses a solid sense of reality, as well as the ability to work and discipline herself in order to fulfill her hopes and dreams.
