drive and ambition
Thora Birch seesaws between being too pushy, confrontational and insistent on doing things her way, and being too eager to please, without a clear, definite goal of her own. Thora Birch strives for a balance between acting independently and assertively - and working cooperatively and interdependently with others. She may feel frustrated at times that she cannot simply do what HE wants and that she must always accommodate the needs and desires of others. Or she may feel hesitant to act in a positive, assertive manner if she does not have the support and approval of other people. Either way, she is not a loner. Thora Birch achieves her goals by collaborating and joining forces with others, by being a team player. She is very concerned with the concept of fairness and becomes quite indignant and vocal if she senses someone is being taken advantage of. Thora Birch avoids extremism and favors a balanced, moderate approach to living. She is unlikely to push herself too hard or to become fanatically driven to reach her goals.
It is not easy for Thora Birch to show the world at large her angry or competitive side, but her family sees this side of her more often. Temper tantrums, tumultuous family relationships, or a great deal of competition between Birch and one or more of her relations is likely. Thora Birch likes to be the one in charge in her home and she puts a lot of energy into making it the way she wants it.
She is very serious about attaining her goals and feels that keeping her nose to the grindstone is the only way to do it. It is by working hard, keeping up her efforts and focusing on a single objective that Thora Birch achieves her aims in life. Thora exercises great self-control, even self-denial, in order to accomplish what she desires. She meets obstacles stoically and struggles patiently through difficult circumstances. Thora Birch feels that she must rely on herself alone and that she must shoulder all of the responsibility. She can be a harsh disciplinarian, expecting far too much of herself and others. Thora often holds herself back, doubting her own power and ability. She may feel that she meets great resistance whenever she tries to assert herself or take initiative, which is very frustrating to Birch. However, Thora Birch has the power to endure and a dogged determination to overcome all obstacles.
Thora Birch seems to lack determination and has a sense of inferiority. She tends to think negatively about herself and is inclined to downgrade herself. But Thora Birch has strong self-control, accepts hardship well and has the desire to overcome her difficulties.
Positions of honor, affluence, influence, and stature in her community can be hers. Thora Birch feels she has a destiny which involves leadership or distinguishing herself in some line of endeavor.

To achieve her ambitions and long-range goals will require much stamina and self-reliance as well as a clearly defined strategy. Numerous setbacks, obstructions or delays can also be expected. A father figure, mentor, or authority in Birch's life may withdraw support at a crucial time. However, this will not stop Thora Birch and may ultimately be a blessing in disguise.
