drive and ambition
Wilma Rudolph avoids direct confrontation as much as possible and is uncomfortable with aggressiveness, competition and personal power. Her ego drive is not very dominant and Rudolph 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 Wilma Rudolph will really fight is when she senses that her loved ones - or something dear to him- are being jeopardized, in which case she is a fierce defender. Wilma Rudolph has a very strong protective side. She acts on impulse and instinct and may lash out at anyone she perceives as threatening to Wilma's home or family. However, Wilma Rudolph 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. Wilma Rudolph is very touchy, irritable and difficult to live with when there are many demands or stressful situations at work. Her energy level varies and is very dependent on the emotional harmony (or lack thereof) in her home. A supportive partner is very instrumental in helping Rudolph to achieve her goals and desires.
She is a doer and an achiever. Energetic, courageous, and often impatient, Wilma Rudolph will forge ahead with her plans regardless of others' reservations. In fact, Rudolph often feels other people get in her way and she prefers working on her own. Wilma is active, assertive, and rather competitive as well.
She enjoys risky, exciting activities and cannot tolerate too much routine, tedium, or inactivity. Unless other factors in her chart suggest staying power and the ability to follow through, Wilma Rudolph may be the person who initiates a new venture but cannot happily participate in the ongoing, sustained effort it requires. "Independent" is Rudolph's middle name! Wilma Rudolph needs to be a totally free agent, to run her own show. Wilma likes to introduce new concepts to people, and then move on.
While Wilma Rudolph is often charged with energy and inspired about what she wants to do (as mentioned earlier), there is a dreamy, visionary, or passive side to her as well. Her energy level may fluctuate from being superabundant to rather lax.
Unlike some who have hopes and fantasies, Rudolph is a person who tries to live out these dreams, no matter how impractical or fantastic they seem. Wilma Rudolph has a quixotic, idealistic streak. She may be more inspired to work for some higher cause than simply for her own personal achievement.
She is very inspirational, but may lack the energy to put her ideas into action. Wilma Rudolph is inclined to feel tired a lot and may not have enough push to follow through. Rudolph can be rebellious at times, but she knows her limits.
Wilma Rudolph 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 Rudolph feels connected to a higher source. Clarifying her own role or direction in life may take Wilma Rudolph some time, so she is apt to be a "late bloomer" when it comes to outward expression and success in material terms.
