In addition to Theodora's strong personal loyalties and the devotion she feels for her nearest and dearest relations (as described on the previous page), Theodora Richards has great compassion and sensitivity toward people in all walks of life. Theodora Richards has a gift for understanding and appreciating a wide variety of art and life styles.
Moreover, Richards should be careful not to be taken advantage of by others. Her good heart and innocent, unsuspecting attitude can make Theodora Richards a victim of others' greed. If this happens, Theodora needs to avoid becoming bitter and resentful about life, and instead, to allow her great compassion and sensitivity to blossom and shine, rather than be dimmed by a few mistakes.
At heart she is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of her imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Theodora Richards as anything in the outer world, though she may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting her inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, she has a rich inner life, though Richards may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Theodora Richards usually keeps to herself.
Theodora shows great sensitivity and empathy toward others and often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. She is tolerant, forgiving and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. Theodora has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and she often feels the pain of others as if it were her own. Theodora Richards sympathizes with the needy, the disadvantaged and the misfits of society. She is capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker or minister. However, Richards tends to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of her kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon her. Theodora has little sense of boundaries, or of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not her strong points.
She is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and she tries to avoid open conflict. Richards will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Richards tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. She is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Theodora Richards does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
Her gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for she possesses great sensitivity, inspiration and limitless imagination. Theodora Richards has a strong affinity for beauty and love.
Her faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than take strong, definite action to change her life for the better. She also tends to become so detached from her immediate environment that she lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around Richards more than it bothers her.
Her career, reputation and public image are very important to Richards. Theodora Richards has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. She is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Theodora Richards may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Realistic and practical, Theodora Richards sets goals for herself that are modest enough for her to actually achieve. She is able to tackle long, difficult projects and see them through, for Richards possesses self-discipline, concentration and perseverance. Theodora Richards also has a strong sense of responsibility and is very conscientious about fulfilling her obligations. Richards often does things because she feels it is expected of her.
Theodora Richards has a sense of good fellowship and comradeship and is very much at ease in contact with others. Richards works successfully with others in her community, groups or associations and may get some assistance from some very powerful and influential people.
