Even though she is emotionally intense and can be somewhat of a pressure cooker at times (as described on the previous page), Zara Phillips is very grounded and stable at heart, as described in more detail below. Her essentially sensible, practical nature enables Zara Phillips to direct some of her powerful feelings and drives into productive channels.
She is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of her greatest assets. Once Phillips' course is set, she pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway her from her purpose.
Zara Phillips has a very practical nature; she wants to see concrete, tangible results for her efforts, and she is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of her "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for she has a great love of the physical world and she wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Zara Phillips will work long and persistently, she also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and she wants to enjoy what she has worked for. In fact, Phillips can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Zara Phillips also loves the beauty of the natural world and she probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, her needs are simple and she is easy to please. Zara Phillips has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless she is forced to do so. She is not very demanding emotionally, though she does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of her faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon Phillips for support. Though she hates upheaval and sudden changes, Zara Phillips usually maintains her poise and equanimity. Zara Phillips also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. She makes an excellent parent, especially if she follows her instincts more often than "the experts".
Zara has three major faults: one is her bullheaded obstinacy. The second is her unwillingness to deviate from her safe, predictable routine. And the third is Phillips' tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Zara Phillips lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open her mind to new horizons.
Zara Phillips invests a tremendous amount of her creative energy into her relationships with others, particularly her marriage or other close partnerships. Zara feels that she needs others in order to be all that she can be, and she is disinclined to solitary activities and endeavors.
Working with people on a one-to-one basis to bring about mutual understanding, harmony, and satisfaction is an area in which Zara Phillips can really excel. Counseling or negotiating are talents of hers.
If she follows her true nature, her life is apt to be unconventional, unusual, controversial and full of insecurity and excitement. Zara Phillips cannot and will not be forced into a pre-set mold, and Zara finds it difficult to conform. Her offbeat interests and tastes lead Phillips to ventures that others may consider too "far-out" or experimental. Zara Phillips has a very creative, inventive streak.
Zara Phillips tends to be very impressionable and psychically open, and as a youngster, she could have been dominated in her relationships with more forceful personalities. Afraid of confrontation, Phillips may have become passive, identified herself as a helpless victim, or tried to gain her desires in underhanded ways.
Zara's hypersensitivity to her environment is apt to be a challenge for her in other ways as well. Pollutants, ugliness, or dissonance in any form is apt to affect Zara Phillips more than most people.
She is apt to be a fanatic in some way, and cannot go halfway in anything she does. Her extremism may seem (and actually be) obsessive and somewhat blind. That is, Zara Phillips does not always consciously understand why she feels as driven or intense about a given course of action as she does. There is a strong element of fate or inevitability in Phillips' life. A significant death or loss in her close relationships is apt to profoundly influence Zara Phillips and shape important decisions in her life, and she may consciously seek out intense, life-or-death experiences as well.
Both sensitive and sensuous, Zara blends charm and energy. Zara Phillips has a healthy sexuality and a good balance between activity and passivity. She may be fond of singing, dancing, music and drama. Romance comes easily to Zara, and her romantic relationships are passionate.
Zara Phillips has a restless and somewhat nervous manner and she attracts attention through her initiative and originality. She is drawn to unusual friends and acquaintances, and because of her confidence may be regarded as a leader in her sphere.
