Vanessa del Rio
mental interests and abilities
Outspoken and direct, she is always eager to express her ideas and opinions and does not mind opposing the consensus and stirring up a little controversy. Vanessa has fresh, original ideas and a great deal of enthusiasm for anything new and untried, but once the novelty has worn off, she is interested in another new idea or project. Vanessa del Rio never seems to have enough time to do everything she wants. She is very honest, speaks decisively and convincingly about things she believes in, and is unable to pretend to agree with someone if she honestly does not. She may be somewhat lacking in tact.
Vanessa del Rio thinks a great deal about her career, her reputation and public image, and the way she makes a contribution or impact on the world at large. Public speaking or some other form of communication is likely to be an important aspect of Vanessa del Rio's work.
Vanessa has a knack for establishing a rapport and communicating with people, is blessed with great interpersonal skills, and is adept at dealing with the public. Vanessa del Rio communicates concern, interest, and the ability to listen, which encourages people to open up and confide in her even if they do not know Vanessa well. del Rio fosters close relationships with others by talking to them (even gossiping will do), or by writing intimate, personal letters. Women feel that Vanessa del Rio understands them.
Her desire to make a point sometime overrides her receptivity to others' views. She can be a good listener, but Vanessa del Rio often finds it hard not to speak out.
Vanessa del Rio tends to seesaw between holding her tongue and lashing out. This verbal self-control seems to create internal tension, so that when del Rio finally does speak her mind, there is quite a bit of resentment or energy between the lines. Learning to state an opinion without making it an attack is important. When out of balance, Vanessa del Rio is prone to frequent, irritating little accidents such as cutting her fingers or getting burned.
She enjoys philosophical speculation and theorizing about abstract ideas and concepts. del Rio is interested in a broad perspective, universal principles and systems, and connecting relationships and patterns - namely, she prefers to see the whole picture rather than the sum total of its components. Vanessa del Rio has a great respect and thirst for knowledge and education, and is the proverbial "perpetual student". Vanessa del Rio also has a talent for teaching and sharing her knowledge, and as a teacher, Vanessa presents herself as a fellow participant in the ongoing quest for understanding rather than as a figure of authority.
She may become involved in television, publishing or other fields that involve sharing ideas with large groups of people. Vanessa del Rio excels in areas that require long-range planning and foresight, and can therefore be very successful in business, but she is rather sloppy and haphazard when it comes to implementing her ideas concretely. Vanessa del Rio should leave the details to someone else. Travel or long-distance contacts and communication will play a major role in her life and work.
Even though del Rio can be a decisive and convincing speaker (as indicated earlier), she also has a highly imaginative and intuitive mind. This combination offers a number of possibilities: Vanessa could accurately articulate the images and fantasies she has, she could forcefully convince others of her own brand of idealism (or illusion!), or Vanessa del Rio may alternate from being very clear and direct to being rather evasive or poetic. The following describes the more fluid, non-rational aspect of del Rio's thinking.
Her mind is intuitive, imaginative, colorful and strongly influenced by imagery or fantasy. del Rio sees the world with the eyes of an artist or a poet, and the hard sciences, as well as fields of endeavor based on concrete facts, rules or rigorous logic, are not del Rio's forte. At times she is able to perceive things that other people cannot - e.g. the "aura" of a place or a person - while at others, Vanessa del Rio apparently does not see and/or overlooks things that are blatantly obvious to others. One problem Vanessa del Rio is prone to is that she projects her fantasies, wishes and dreams onto other people or external circumstances and simply fails to see what is actually at stake.
Her mind is deep and penetrating and she is interested in anything secret, mysterious, or hidden, including the deeper recesses of the human psyche. Vanessa del Rio possesses an aptitude for private investigation, psychology and research work. Vanessa del Rio is also drawn to esoteric or occult studies.
