Even-tempered and peace loving, she is not easily ruffled and is rarely given to emotional displays. Sophia Crawford has a calming effect on more high-strung or volatile people, and an emotional steadiness that others find soothing. Though gentle and not easily provoked, Crawford is tremendously stubborn and resists any change that requires an emotional adjustment, such as changes in her home life or marriage.
Sophia Crawford seeks security and loyalty in love relationships, is extremely devoted to her loved ones and provides a warm, nurturing atmosphere for them. However, Crawford tends to cling to others and prevent them from changing.
A great deal of physical affection, closeness and touching is crucial to Sophia's well-being, and she has a tendency to overindulge in sensual comforts and pleasures. At times Sophia Crawford substitutes food for emotional comfort and love.
Crawford works well with the public and has an instinct for what the public wants and will respond to. Having a "nest" is not especially important to Sophia, and she may invest more of her emotional energy into her career or public life than in her private life. She is likely to be engaged in providing and caring for others in a professional capacity.
Sophia Crawford feels that she must always be doing something, and she becomes impatient and irritable if she has to slow down or wait for anything. A stormy home life may be the result of her own tendency to fight for what she wants, rather than compromise. Sophia may not realize how competitive she is.
She is uninhibited and spontaneous and will often do something unexpected or humorous in order to loosen people up and get them out of their rut. Sophia Crawford craves emotional stimulation, excitement, surprises and anything new. Crawford also loves to feel free and unfettered.
Although Sophia Crawford was portrayed above as being assertive and combative, she also has a diametrically opposed tendency - namely the urge to escape all contention and ugliness. This may mellow Sophia's fiery reactions somewhat, or she may seesaw between the two. Her softer side is described in the following paragraphs.
Emotionally she is very sensitive, dreamy, gentle and easily influenced. If she is with harmonious people and in congenial surroundings, Sophia Crawford flourishes, but negative people or dissonant energies very quickly bring her down. Her emotional boundaries tend to be very loose and permeable. Sophia Crawford feels what others feel, and physically she is very open and impressionable. Standing up for herself, saying no when she wants to, as well as recognizing and respecting others' limitations and boundaries are important lessons for Sophia Crawford to learn. Sophia Crawford should beware of a tendency for martyrdom out of pity for others' problems.
She enjoys emotional intensity and is attracted to the mysterious, the unknown, and dangerous or challenging experiences that draw on all of her inner resources. She is able to handle an emotional crisis very well and is interested in the underlying root of emotional problems and how to cure them. Sophia Crawford insists on bringing feelings between people out into the open, for she craves real closeness and intimacy in her relationships, without barriers or secrets.
Her thinking is dictated by her feelings and Crawford may rely on her intuitions and impressions rather than practical means. Her advice may often be sought and heeded, because Sophia Crawford seems to know and understand what motivates others.
She is subject to changing moods and tends to alternate between associating with others and being completely alone, seeking to regenerate herself in solitude. Sophia Crawford seems to be too critical of herself and tends to generate distance from 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". Sophia Crawford 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. Sophia wants to see sparks fly once in awhile, even if it means instigating a fight.
Sophia is attracted to foreigners, exotic places, traveling and people who can expand her horizons, teach her something, or show her places and worlds she has never experienced before. Sharing a philosophy or ideal with her love partner is important to her.
Moreover, Sophia Crawford feels love and kinship for people everywhere, not only for 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.
While she may seek loving relationships and an "everlasting" love, this is not easy for Sophia Crawford to find - or more precisely, to sustain. When Sophia becomes romantically involved with someone, either she or the other person will create rifts once a certain level of comfort and predictability has been achieved. Even if there is no outward break in the relationship, a certain emotional aloofness or dissatisfaction is apt to develop. This is because Sophia Crawford really wants both closeness and absolute freedom - a combination that is difficult to attain. However, if she does not at least attempt to honestly fulfill both of these urges, seemingly random events will wreak havoc in Sophia's closest relationships.
She is prone to getting 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 Sophia Crawford 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, Crawford 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, Sophia Crawford will find that her closest relationships are rather tumultuous affairs in which some rather unsavory aspects of her character (such as jealousy and the desire to dominate or to be a victim) keep surfacing. These are qualities that need to be understood and ultimately outgrown.
