drive and ambition
Vivien Leigh avoids direct confrontation as much as possible and is uncomfortable with aggressiveness, competition, and personal power. Her ego drive is not very strong and Leigh is not especially ambitious or eager to push her way to the top. She may feel inadequate in situations that call for strong, forceful action. The only instance in which Vivien Leigh will really fight is when she feels her loved ones, or something dear to her, is being harmed, for then she is a fierce defender. Vivien Leigh has a very strong protective side. She acts on impulse and instinct and may lash out at anyone she perceives as threatening to Vivien's home or family. However, Vivien Leigh will rarely initiate a confrontation. Her goals also tend to be very personal and centered on family closeness and inner satisfaction rather than worldly achievement.
She is sensitive to stress and does not handle a high-pressured, competitive atmosphere very well. Vivien Leigh is very touchy, irritable, and difficult to live with when there are many demands or tensions at work. Her energy level is inconstant and is very much dependent upon the emotional harmony (or lack of it) in her home. A supportive partner is of great benefit to Leigh in helping her to achieve her goals and desires.
Quick-witted and sharp-tongued, Vivien Leigh enjoys arguing, debating, and contesting other people's opinions. She is quite forthright and sometimes tactless. Leigh can be very convincing about her point of view, but she is prone to a "hard-sell" approach which sometimes backfires. Challenging mental work is a good avenue for Vivien's aggressive intellect.
Vivien Leigh has a very active and fertile imagination and her ambitions are never strictly mundane, practical, and concrete. Vivien Leigh has a strong desire to act out her fantasies, dreams, visions, and ideals. Artistic creation, drama, or other areas in which Leigh can express herself imaginatively are excellent for her. Ordinary life seems drab and uninteresting to Vivien, and she needs to have some big dream or something larger than her own narrow personal interests to live for. Sometimes she may be confused about exactly how and where to direct her energy and she often drifts along rather than making clear decisions about what she wants. Vivien Leigh has a passive side and at times lacks the will power, physical energy, strength, and the fighting spirit to achieve her aims.
She is able to see her objectives in life very clearly and wants to create her own good fortune. Quite energetic, Vivien Leigh may want to express herself creatively. Inviting good cooperation with others, she is likely to achieve much popularity.
Her aspirations in life are apt to be quite unusual, extraordinary, or ahead of their time. Vivien Leigh is a nonconformist, insistent on doing things her own way, and she will follow a zigzag course to the fulfillment of her ambitions.
Rebelling against authority seems to be one aspect of her life's plan. Vivien Leigh simply cannot force herself into a pre-cast mold of any kind.
Vivien Leigh needs to have a strong spiritual base to her life in order to achieve anything in concrete, external terms. That is, fulfilling any ambitions she has for herself will depend upon whether or not Leigh feels connected to a higher source. Clarifying her own role or direction in life may take Vivien Leigh some time, so she is apt to be a "late bloomer" when it comes to outward expression and success in material terms.
Leigh may well have an unusual destiny or pivotal role to play in a drama that involves much more than her own personal ambitions and professional aims. This could involve uncovering secrets, bringing deception, cruelty, or injustice to light, or making fundamental changes in some field. Vivien's work may also include dealing with life and death situations, crises, and emergencies. Somewhere along the way, fate may force Leigh's hand - and it may require some self-sacrifice on her part. On the other hand, her real work may be rather subtle - a quiet transformation of a particular area or field. Vivien Leigh is meant to do in-depth work.
Vivien Leigh has a very harmonious personality and is likely to be loved by everyone. She seems to radiate love and understanding. Vivien has a sense of beauty, appreciates art, and likes beautiful surroundings.
