drive and ambition
She is a perfectionist and has high standards for her own work. Stevie Nicks often feels that if she wants something done right she must do it herself, for others do not do as thorough a job as she does. Doing a task well is very important to her, and she may labor over minute details that others would not bother with. Stevie Nicks strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and she becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Stevie Nicks can become so much of a perfectionist and so self-critical that she will not even attempt many activities and projects, feeling that her efforts will simply not be good enough. She is usually modest and realistic in assessing what she can accomplish and, if anything, Stevie Nicks underestimates herself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Nicks does apply herself diligently in a given area, she gradually gains self-confidence as she masters skills and develops expertise.
Stevie Nicks conserves her energy and paces herself so that she does not waste or diffuse her efforts. An unwillingness to take risks or venture from the beaten track can sometimes limit her opportunities. In short, Nicks may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.
Nicks plays vigorously and enjoys competitive games and physical rough-and-tumble activities. Athletics and/or physical activities have great appeal for her. Stevie Nicks takes the initiative in sports and also in romantic relationships: she is ardent in pursuing anything she desires.
She makes no effort to hide her feelings and therefore gives others the impression of being moody. Home and family oriented, Stevie Nicks has strong relationships with her relatives. Stevie wants to be in first place and is not afraid to let her voice be heard.
Stevie Nicks is apt to receive much publicity and popularity through her professional pursuits, for she has a way of winning the hearts and trust of many people. Stevie has an instinct for what the masses of people will respond to emotionally, and this feeling-sense of what other people want enables her to succeed in sales, promotion, and so on. Her career could also involve protecting and caring for people, and nurturing them in some capacity.
Her desire for a beautiful home, a comfortable, pleasing lifestyle, and time to relax and enjoy herself may well be the motivation for going out into the world and trying to achieve outward success. Stevie Nicks may seesaw at times between her professional drives and desire for status, and the appeal of a rich personal life and home comforts.
Indecision and confusion over her ambitions or direction in life may hold Stevie back from achieving anything solid, especially in her early life. She is very much a dreamer and her interests and inclinations may not translate very readily into concrete goals. Personal glory or accomplishment can never be Nicks' sole motivation or drive in life. Ministering to others in some way may be her calling, however. Or Stevie Nicks could use her dreamy, imaginative energies in creative ways - the arts, music or entertainment field.
Nicks may well have an unusual destiny or pivotal role to play in a drama that involves much more than her own personal ambitions and professional aims. This could involve uncovering secrets, bringing deception, cruelty, or injustice to light, or making fundamental changes in some field. Stevie's work may also include dealing with life and death situations, crises, and emergencies. Somewhere along the way, fate may force Nicks' hand - and it may require some self-sacrifice on her part. On the other hand, her real work may be rather subtle - a quiet transformation of a particular area or field. Stevie Nicks is meant to do in-depth work.
Stevie Nicks seems to lack confidence in herself and worries about being compromised or exposed. She may feel that she is unable to defend herself and tends to withdraw from close relationships. It is more important to Stevie to do the right thing than to be popular.
