The way Zelda Fitzgerald comes across to others is very congruent with her true nature so "what she sees is what you get". The description below reinforces what you read about Zelda in the previous chapter.
Proud and intensely individual, Zelda Fitzgerald 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". Zelda Fitzgerald must put her personal stamp on whatever she does, and direct her own course in life. Zelda Fitzgerald needs to have a place where she can shine, express herself creatively, and be the one in charge.
Zelda has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. Zelda Fitzgerald also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Zelda Fitzgerald, 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. Zelda 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 Fitzgerald 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.
Zelda Fitzgerald also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person she loves feel special. Zelda Fitzgerald 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, Zelda Fitzgerald likes to be the strong one in her relationships and she really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, Zelda needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as she is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with her.
Fitzgerald'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.
Zelda Fitzgerald tends to get involved in the helping professions or in activities where her efforts are hidden, behind the scenes, unacknowledged, or unknown to the public. Asserting herself or getting up in front of an audience may be exceedingly uncomfortable for Fitzgerald.
Zelda 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 Fitzgerald many allies and successes in life.
However she also has a more somber side, which keeps Fitzgerald's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Zelda Fitzgerald 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.
Zelda has to overcome considerable hardship in order to fulfill her personal destiny. However, she does have the strength and stamina necessary to do so. Support and helpful guidance from her father or other significant men in her life may well be lacking. In fact, their disapproval of Zelda and their harsh criticism are apt to be two of her greatest handicaps, and at times she may feel quite discouraged and alone. But true self-reliance and a solid sense of her own powers may well be the silver lining to that cloud in her life. Zelda Fitzgerald needs to learn to follow her own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what her critics or the authorities say.
