Serious and responsible, she tries to carry the world on her shoulders and rarely lets others know that she needs help and support. Sofia Coppola denies or ignores her own emotional needs and feels that others will not accept her if she appears "weak". She is especially uncomfortable with emotional dependency, and tells herself and others (even children) not to be a "baby". Sofia Coppola needs to accept that no one is self-sufficient all the time, and to be gentler with her "childish" emotional needs and wants. To others, she may appear to be rather hard-nosed and tough, with a businesslike attitude toward their personal concerns and feelings. Actually, no one is a truer friend. Her feelings and loyalties run deep, but she often does not let people know how much she cares. Sofia Coppola also sometimes needs to learn to relax, enjoy herself, and play.
She is emotionally expressive and often dramatizes her feelings, acting them out or blowing them out of proportion. Sofia Coppola cannot hide her instinctive emotional reactions to people or situations, and she does not make any pretenses about her personal sympathies or antipathies.
Sofia Coppola has a childlike openness and playfulness which is very appealing to others, but which sometimes gets her into trouble, as Sofia takes risks on impulse or whim.
Sofia Coppola craves excitement, change and discovery, and cannot tolerate a routine or lifestyle that offers little in the way of surprise or challenge. Excitable, spontaneous and enthusiastic about anything new, she may be perceived by others as being too impulsive, especially in personal relationships. It is not easy for Sofia Coppola to make or keep commitments, since she does not know how she will be feeling from one day to the next. Emotional freedom is very important to Coppola. Her domestic life may be very unstable - but Coppola likes it that way.
Sofia has the ability to speak with her heart and soul and therefore to convince people. She is adaptable in both her thinking and speaking, but also changeable. In her work Sofia Coppola can be a fanatic, at times inconsiderate and expects too much of others.
Her love feelings and desires are easily aroused but she may find it difficult to sustain her romantic interest in relationships after the initial, exciting "chase and conquest". Sofia Coppola enjoys a dynamic partner with a strong independent streak, and she does not like things to become too peaceful or predictable in the love arena. Sofia wants to see sparks fly once in awhile, even if it means instigating a fight.
Sofia is attracted to foreigners, exotic places, traveling, and to people who can expand her horizons, teach her something, or show Coppola places and worlds she has never experienced before. Sharing a philosophy or ideal with her love partner is important to her.
Also, Sofia Coppola feels love and kinship for people everywhere, not only with her own family, nationality, or group. Finding similarities and making links between people from differing backgrounds or with different perspectives is a gift of hers.
She is prone to get involved in highly intense, even obsessive relationships - "fatal attractions", so to speak. At its darkest, this urge for intensity in the personal arena may compel Sofia Coppola to choose friends or mates who are rather dangerous or dishonorable characters with a penchant for manipulating and inflicting pain on their "loved ones". On the other hand, Coppola may be tempted to use her own sexuality or charm to play the same sort of game, to use love or friendship as a bargaining chip or to gain power over others. Even if her intentions are basically good, Sofia Coppola will find that her closest relationships are rather tumultuous affairs in which some rather unlovely aspects of her (such as jealousy and the desire to dominate or to be a victim) keep showing their faces. These are qualities that need to be understood and ultimately outgrown.
