mental interests and abilities
She is highly interested in inner, subjective and personal issues, and her thinking is based more on feelings, intuition, personal experiences and prejudices, than on reason or logic. Intellectual abilities and accomplishments without heart or soul mean little to Venus. She is empathic and would be an excellent counselor, for she is a sensitive listener and deeply interested in people's feelings and inner life. In addition to psychology, Venus Williams is drawn to education, art, poetry, music or mythology. She is not particularly confident about speaking in public, but will open up and share her thoughts in small, intimate groups. Williams enjoys keeping a personal journal and reading the chronicles of others' lives and personal development.
Venus Williams 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 communications of some other kind is likely to be an important aspect of the work Venus Williams does.
Venus Williams has a sharp tongue and ready wit, and she enjoys intellectual competition, problem solving, and demanding intellectual work. In a debate, she knows how to drive her point home. Venus Williams also possesses quick reflexes and dexterity and could be an excellent tennis or racquetball player. Any sport which involves a dynamic exchange between the players is a suitable arena for Williams.
Venus Williams has a great capacity for concentration, handling details, and learning about subjects others might find ponderous, too technical, or dry. She could easily become a teacher of some specialized skill or field of knowledge. Practical applications and techniques are her forte. In speech Venus Williams tends to be factual and to the point.
Williams will notice that the description below contradicts some of the statements made in the previous paragraphs. So far, Venus Williams' thinking was depicted as careful, conservative, methodical and possibly narrow or rigid, while the following information defines her mind as quick and innovative. Both are true! Venus Williams incorporates both ways of thinking - the inspired-inventive and the deductive-ordered. Here is a description of the more free-flowing aspect:
Independent and freethinking, Venus Williams dislikes being told what to do and how to do it, and she especially does not like being told how to think, for Venus insists on discovering her own truth. Venus Williams does well in a rather unstructured environment that allows her to make her own decisions and to respond to the needs of the moment, rather than following a routine, standardized way of doing things. She is also suited to a fast-paced atmosphere, which Williams finds exciting and stimulating. Her mind functions in an intuitive, nonlinear fashion and sudden insights and flashes of inspiration often come to her "out of the blue". Venus has an aptitude for science and new technologies are of particular interest to her. Venus Williams also has a penchant for astrology or other esoteric sciences.
Even though Williams 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: Venus could accurately articulate the images and fantasies she has, she could forcefully convince others of her own brand of idealism (or illusion!), or Venus Williams may alternate from being very clear and direct to being rather evasive or poetic. The following describes the more fluid, non-rational aspect of Williams' thinking.
Although Venus Williams' thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times Williams can be quite the opposite. There may very well be periods of absentmindedness, building castles in the air, or ruminating over mystical, abstract or imponderable subjects, as discussed below.
Vague, confused thinking which can lead to miscommunication and misunderstandings can be a problem for Venus Williams, and she has to work at being as clear, honest and unambiguous in her dealings with others as she possibly can. Venus tends, also, to "go off the deep end" regarding spiritual philosophies, imaginative ideas, or theoretical speculation which may or may not have any real relevance or validity. Venus Williams should try to critically test out her ideas, or seek out a person whose judgment and character she respects, to use as a sounding board.
Never satisfied with the face value of anything, Venus is always probing beneath the surface for deeper reasons and hidden motives - though she rarely reveals her own. Venus Williams has a very suspicious, even paranoid, side. Her mind is penetrating and Venus Williams has an aptitude for research, investigative reporting or private investigation. She is keenly interested in the deeper aspects of the human psyche, with a sort of "x-ray vision" of the inner motivations and intentions of others. She is drawn to anything secret, hidden, or mysterious, and may pursue esoteric or occult studies. Williams is also a forceful and convincing speaker or writer, with the ability to influence people's thinking by the sheer power of her conviction.
Venus Williams has a strong desire to keep in contact with like-minded people and tends to discuss love relationships problems with them. Venus seems to be especially drawn to children and young people and is always welcomed and appreciated by them.
