Although Whitney Houston appears to be unselfish, gentle and somewhat passive (as described on the previous page), Houston really has a strong sense of herself and is a much more dominant individual than she seems to be initially. Whitney Houston also craves personal glory and acclaim much more than she first lets on. She may feel torn, at times, between taking care of herself and giving to others.
Proud and intensely individual, Whitney Houston really wants to stand out, to be the very best she can be, and to be recognized and appreciated for her unique contributions. Doing something well and being respected for it is extremely important to her, and she cannot tolerate being relegated to the background, taking orders from others, or being "just one of the team". Whitney Houston must put her personal stamp on whatever she does, and direct her own course in life. Whitney Houston needs to have a place where she can shine, express herself creatively, and be the one in charge.
Whitney has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. Whitney Houston also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Whitney Houston, it is true that "the entire world's a stage" and she secretly (or perhaps not so secretly) desires to be the star or hero of the play. Whitney wants to be great and to receive the love and applause of an adoring audience, even if the "audience" is just one other special person. She needs someone to believe in her and her dreams. Though Houston appears radiantly self-confident and independent, she is actually very dependent on the affirmation, love and recognition of others. She cannot bear going unnoticed or unappreciated.
Whitney Houston also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person she loves feel special. Whitney Houston loves the magic of "being in love" and knows how to keep the romance alive in her relationships. She is also immensely loyal and will defend her loved ones and stand by them to the end - as long as they never offend her pride or betray her trust. However, Whitney Houston likes to be the strong one in her relationships and she really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, Whitney needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as she is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with her.
Houston's strengths are her zest and love for life, her creative power and her warm and generous heart. Her primary fault is her tendency to be very egocentric, and so concerned with the impression she is making and with her own creative self-expression that she forgets there is another, larger world that does not revolve around her.
Her energies are directed to either perfecting her techniques, skills, and abilities in work, or in "perfecting", refining, and improving herself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. The urge to bring about a state of wholeness or optimal functioning is a strong motivation of Whitney Houston's, and she is quite a perfectionist!
Houston can easily become overly identified or involved with the function she performs, with her work, or with her own health and "growth process".
Whitney Houston is loving and well loved by others, and has a strong need for relationships that offer kindness, friendship and affection. Her artistic and creative powers are also well developed and Whitney does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Houston, as are her personal appearance and attractiveness.
Whitney Houston feels that she has the support of her family or others in her environment for her creative efforts and personal goals, which enables her to act with confidence. She is able to satisfy both her need to be an individual and her need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. She is in harmony with herself and is therefore an effective individual.
Whitney has lofty aspirations but does not struggle or labor to achieve them. Her self-confidence and inner harmony attract success and benefit her in an almost magical way. Her optimism and cheerful generosity also win Houston many allies and successes in life.
While Whitney Houston deeply appreciates beauty and has a great desire for love, she is in no way frivolous or indiscriminate in her affections. Houston can be very frugal and sparing with both money and emotions.
However she also has a more somber side, which keeps Houston's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Whitney Houston tends to seesaw between her faith, vision and high aspirations, and her caution and realism (or fear!). She cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and she accepts the need for hard work. Her skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
She may have had a demanding and perfectionist or absent father. In any case, a lack of support and approval, a great deal of responsibility at an early age and an underlying feeling that she can never quite measure up may hold Houston back. While she may encounter a great deal of adversity and struggle alone through many of life's trials, this makes Whitney Houston tough and determined. However, Houston should beware of becoming cynical, too hard on herself, and too demanding and critical of others.
While she is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Whitney Houston also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
Whitney is extremely sensitive and imaginative, and she can get lost in her dreams, fantasies and visions. She is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, as well as to the world of color, beauty, and emotion. Whitney Houston is also drawn to mysticism and she has deep spiritual aspirations and yearnings. Gentle and peace loving, Houston may lack the will and competitive spirit needed to make her way in the world. She is often impractical and may seek to avoid or escape the harsh realities of life.
Her emotions are in tune with her intentions and Whitney Houston goes about her business with complete oneness. Whitney Houston has a positive attitude towards life and a high spirit of enterprise. There could be a strong tie between Whitney and her mother or her wife.
Whitney Houston has a strong need for intellectual relationships and associations and she likes to share her intellectual interests with others. This could be in meetings or by joining various clubs and organizations.
Whitney Houston tends to impose her will upon others in a rather ruthless way, but on the other hand she may also be imposed upon by others. Whitney feels a constant need to fight for leadership and has a great desire to become a public figure.
