drive and ambition
Susan Ward avoids direct confrontation as much as possible and is uncomfortable with aggressiveness, competition and personal power. Her ego drive is not very dominant and Ward is not especially ambitious or eager to push her way to the top. She may feel inadequate in situations that call for strong, forceful action. The only instance in which Susan Ward will really fight is when she senses that her loved ones - or something dear to him- are being jeopardized, in which case she is a fierce defender. Susan Ward has a very strong protective side. She acts on impulse and instinct and may lash out at anyone she perceives as threatening to Susan's home or family. However, Susan Ward will rarely initiate a confrontation. Her goals also tend to be very personal and centered on family closeness and inner satisfaction rather than worldly achievement.
She is sensitive to stress and does not handle a high-pressured, competitive atmosphere very well. Susan Ward is very touchy, irritable and difficult to live with when there are many demands or stressful situations at work. Her energy level varies and is very dependent on the emotional harmony (or lack thereof) in her home. A supportive partner is very instrumental in helping Ward to achieve her goals and desires.
Asserting herself and being direct and forceful about what she wants is very often difficult for Susan. Though she may have a great deal of energy and drive, Susan Ward lacks confidence or simply the desire to put herself and her interests first. Positively, Ward can be very unselfish, working more on behalf of others rather than for herself.
However, Susan Ward denies her own desires and needs too much, and she is likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage her finest efforts.
Susan Ward has a streak of the pacifist or defeatist in her. Learning to assert herself in a strong, clear, forthright manner, and developing stamina in the face of obstacles are necessary to counter such tendencies. To accomplish all she is capable of, it would also be very beneficial for Susan Ward to work on building up her physical energy. Susan needs to get regular exercise, eat healthfully, get plenty of rest (something she may require more of than average), and especially avoid activities and people that dissipate and waste her time.

She may have to overcome something in her background or personal past in order to achieve her long-range goals and ambitions. Sometimes Susan Ward is apt to feel pulled in two different directions - what others expect of her or what she needs to do to progress, versus what her old conditioning or her emotional predisposition would have her do. Overcoming the pull of the past is the key.
Susan Ward perseveres through numerous obstacles, frustrations, delays, and setbacks in order to attain her ambitions in life. Sometimes it may feel as if she is pushing a boulder uphill. Susan Ward should try to avoid bitterness or comparing her lot to others', as these could weaken her resolve.
