drive and ambition
She is a perfectionist and has high standards for her own work. Venus Williams often feels that if she wants something done right she must do it herself, for others do not do as thorough a job as she does. Doing a task well is very important to her, and she may labor over minute details that others would not bother with. Venus Williams strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and she becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Venus Williams can become so much of a perfectionist and so self-critical that she will not even attempt many activities and projects, feeling that her efforts will simply not be good enough. She is usually modest and realistic in assessing what she can accomplish and, if anything, Venus Williams underestimates herself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Williams does apply herself diligently in a given area, she gradually gains self-confidence as she masters skills and develops expertise.
Venus Williams conserves her energy and paces herself so that she does not waste or diffuse her efforts. An unwillingness to take risks or venture from the beaten track can sometimes limit her opportunities. In short, Williams may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.
Asserting herself and being direct and forceful about what she wants is very often difficult for Venus. Though she may have a great deal of energy and drive, Venus Williams lacks confidence or simply the desire to put herself and her interests first. Positively, Williams can be very unselfish, working more on behalf of others rather than for herself.
However, Venus Williams denies her own desires and needs too much, and she is likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage her finest efforts.
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 Venus Williams achieves her aims in life. Venus exercises great self-control, even self-denial, in order to accomplish what she desires. She meets obstacles stoically and struggles patiently through difficult circumstances. Venus Williams 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. Venus 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 Williams. However, Venus Williams has the power to endure and a dogged determination to overcome all obstacles.
Ordinary life often seems drab and uninteresting to Venus and she must have something that stirs her imagination - a vision or ideal or dream to motivate her. Venus Williams has a strong urge to act out her fantasies or to live her dream, and Venus Williams will act where others merely talk or dream. Artistic creation, drama or other areas in which Williams can express herself imaginatively are excellent for her.
Work that only serves her own narrow personal interests does not satisfy Venus Williams. She may lack the competitive edge, the fighting spirit, the "me first" attitude that is often required for material advancement and success. She also tends to either overestimate or underestimate her own power and abilities.
Eccentric, individualistic and very excitable, Venus Williams can create a stir wherever she goes. If she is not careful, Williams could often find herself involved in quarrels or even violent assaults. To avoid trouble, it would be wise for Venus Williams to learn to deal with others without anger.
Venus Williams has a desire to accomplish projects with others for the good of all. Venus could form associations or groups of people where she can further the pursuit of mutual objectives. Her achievements are likely to generate prestige for Williams.
In meeting her challenges and difficulties in life, Venus Williams does have allies: her ability to tolerate tension and ambivalence, her ability to compromise, and a capacity to endure discomfort. Remaining steady in the midst of crisis or sudden change is an aspect of this, as well as knowing when to wait and when to make necessary changes. Venus' timing is usually good.
Language, words, communication, networking, clarity of speech or writing, being a messenger or go-between - these are key features in her career, as well as how Venus Williams goes about achieving her goals and ambitions. "Work smarter, not harder" is Williams' motto.
In some ways Venus Williams may feels that she has little choice about her role in society. She is compelled either by unusual outer circumstances or by an inner drive, to bring things which may be dark, difficult, or taboo, into public awareness. Venus delves into the hidden side of life, things which may have been purposefully concealed or repressed, and brings these things to light. Venus Williams could come into direct conflict with the authorities or powers-that-be as a result. She is apt to have extraordinary ambitions, and could also become overly zealous and fanatical.
Her profession could involve physical strength and prowess, such as athletics, fire fighting, law enforcement, or the military. Venus Williams would never be happy in a quiet, sit-down job. Vigorous competition and strenuous work are undoubtedly key components of both what Venus Williams does and how she achieves her long-range goals.
