Who is she?
Gretchen is anything but wishy-washy! Endowed with qualities that one would more readily attribute to a man than a woman, Gretchen is full of energy, bold and authoritarian. Rather egocentric, her primary concern is herself and the second is asserting herself (her first name begins with two letters that have a value of 1). Nonetheless, deep down inside, worry and self-doubt subsist, and this could manifest itself in different ways due to the influence of 1 and 8. For example, if she thinks she is in the wrong, she could project these feelings onto the outside world and become wary, distant and rather haughty, a wry smile on her face, on the defensive... She could either become introverted, hiding away in her shell, or she could go the other way by being original - eccentric even, in a radical attempt to compensate. In fact, an apparently interiorized nature that is thoughtful, cerebral and analytic (7) coexists with a more concrete, materialistic tendency (8), and this duality can result in a very strong character! However, these influences are karmic, and Gretchen could constantly alternate between these two orientations in life. With one, material preoccupations are predominant, while the other is uncomfortable with money and is drawn to spirituality or abstraction... Whatever the case, this is a woman who is active, determined, shrewd and impatient, and somebody who seeks power, above all. As a child, she can be a shady character. Rather hard-nosed and touchy, she is prone to anger. Somewhat jealous, she demands exclusivity. All the same, she knows what she wants, and with a little help from her dynamism, her opportunism as well as her personal magnetism, she usually succeeds in getting it, (especially since flexibility and weakness aren't words that she understands). Her upbringing should be firm but fair. She needs to be able to admire her parents, particularly her father, and can't excuse weakness in them.
