When reading Thalía's description in the preceding chapter, one would never guess that behind her direct and self-assured manner lies a great deal of caution and self-doubt. Part of Thalía wants to take risks and forge ahead; the other part is far more cautious and sees all the ways her ventures could fail. Moreover, as mentioned below, precision and meticulous attention to detail are actually strong points of Thalía's, though one might be deceived at first by her impetuous manner.
At heart Thalía is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Thalía has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Thalía can be relied upon to be cautious, efficient, and thorough in her work and she takes pride in a job well done. What she may lack in self-confidence Thalía often makes up for in skills - fostering expertise, technical knowledge and competence in a specialized area. She is adept at using her hands to create or fix things, and meticulous attention to detail and careful craftsmanship are her forte. Some would say she is a little too meticulous, for Thalía can be extremely critical and petty if everything is not done exactly as she thinks it should be, and she worries about things that other people consider trivial and unimportant. Thalía likes to organize, categorize and arrange everything into a logical system and is often distinctly uncomfortable when something does not fit into a neat category. Disorganization vexes Thalía. She probably wishes that she were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Thalía can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in her environment or within herself, Thalía tends to focus on the flaws, with a desire to improve, refine, and perfect. She is strictly factual, truthful, and scrupulously honest in her self-assessment and often does not give herself enough praise or credit.
She is also highly discriminating and may be especially particular about her diet, hygiene, and health habits. Thalía has high aesthetic standards and refined sensitivities, and is bothered by environmental elements (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that others overlook. Her tastes are simple and understated, yet refined. She is truly offended by coarseness, bluntness and vulgarity. Thalía can sometimes be difficult to live with because of her fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though Thalía seems rather cool and self-contained, she is very helpful by nature and enjoys serving others. She is content to play a supporting role rather than the lead. She is quietly devoted to the ones she cares for.
She is cautious, realistic and practical in her approach to life and disinclined to gamble. Thalía analyzes before she acts. She is sometimes too serious. If Thalía allowed herself to play and make mistakes, it would be highly beneficial to her health!
Her energies are directed toward either honing her professional techniques, skills and abilities or "perfecting", refining, and improving herself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. Thalía is highly motivated to strive for a state of wholeness or optimal functioning and she is quite a perfectionist!
Thalía can easily become overly identified or involved with the task she performs, with her work, or with her own health and "growth process".
Thalía tends to see things from her perspective only and to be rather subjective. She also enjoys talking and expressing her views but does not always listen as well. Thalía has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Thalía is loving and well loved by others, and has a strong need for relationships that offer kindness, friendship and affection. Her artistic and creative powers are also well developed and Thalía does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Thalía, as are her personal appearance and attractiveness.
Thalía has big aspirations and the desire to succeed in life in a grand way. Thalía tends to exaggerate, promise more than is feasible and misjudge by being overly optimistic. However, she never gives up on her hopes for the future. Thalía tends to be restless and discontent with the responsibilities and limitations of life.
While Thalía deeply appreciates beauty and has a great desire for love, she is in no way frivolous or indiscriminate in her affections. Thalía can be very frugal and sparing with both money and emotions.
However she also has a more somber side, which keeps Thalía's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Thalía tends to seesaw between her faith, vision and high aspirations, and her caution and realism (or fear!). She cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and she accepts the need for hard work. Her skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
She is often plagued by feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions and self-doubt. Thalía has a cautious, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to her obligations and duties. Thalía tends to work and struggle more than necessary and to take herself too seriously.
While she is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Thalía also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
Thalía is extremely sensitive and imaginative, and she can get lost in her dreams, fantasies and visions. She is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, as well as to the world of color, beauty, and emotion. Thalía is also drawn to mysticism and she has deep spiritual aspirations and yearnings. Gentle and peace loving, Thalía may lack the will and competitive spirit needed to make her way in the world. She is often impractical and may seek to avoid or escape the harsh realities of life.
Thalía always seems to find the right words to verbalize her feelings, especially in regard to love and friendship. Thalía also has a keen sense of beauty and she probably appreciates art, music or poetry.
She may lack direction and drive and tends to compare herself unfavorably to others. Thalía alternates between caution and unrealistic expectations and lets others expect too much of her. But Thalía plods forward steadily, reaching success later in life.
Thalía seems to lack self-confidence and has a sense of anxiety and insecurity that has no obvious cause. Thalía tends to withdraw and her outlook in general could be a bit too negative. Thalía should beware of letting her emotional tension react to her physical well-being.
