In addition to Vanessa's strong personal loyalties and the devotion she feels for her nearest and dearest relations (as described on the previous page), Vanessa Williams has great compassion and sensitivity toward people in all walks of life. Vanessa Williams has a gift for understanding and appreciating a wide variety of art and life styles.
Moreover, Williams should be careful not to be taken advantage of by others. Her good heart and innocent, unsuspecting attitude can make Vanessa Williams a victim of others' greed. If this happens, Vanessa 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 Vanessa Williams 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 Williams may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Vanessa Williams usually keeps to herself.
Vanessa 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. Vanessa has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and she often feels the pain of others as if it were her own. Vanessa Williams 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, Williams 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. Vanessa 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. Williams will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Williams tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. She is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Vanessa Williams 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. Vanessa Williams 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 Williams more than it bothers her.
Her career, reputation and public image are very important to Williams. Vanessa Williams 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. Vanessa Williams may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Vanessa Williams often feels that she is at cross purposes with herself, for her conscious intentions and desires conflict with her subconscious emotional needs and drives. She is torn in two different directions. Vanessa has difficulty satisfying both her need to be an individual and her need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Vanessa sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to her or what Vanessa really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
She is blessed with abundant optimism, self-confidence and cheerful generosity. Her good will and friendliness win her many allies. Vanessa Williams also has grand visions and aspirations, and the desire to succeed in life in a big way. Vanessa expects the best, and usually gets it.
