Who is she?
Bastienne appears to be someone who is determined and original, bursting with vitality and a zest for life. Bold and resourceful, she enjoys taking risks, and is often quick to assume the role of the leader, although she is also particularly feminine and maternal, and enjoys taking care of others. Furthermore, her manner is generally warm and reassuring, because Bastienne is eager to please other people. This could be expressed through a friendly attitude, or perhaps in taking great care of her appearance... In any case she's the real thing, uncompromising, frank and direct - and fiercely loyal. She is extremely sensitive and simply can't tolerate injustice, if she witnesses unfair treatment she usually won't hesitate to intervene. She is highly energetic and capable of summoning up more motivation for others than for herself, whilst competition doesn't worry her much at all. Bastienne is headstrong and active, lives predominantly in the material realm, and knows how to be efficient and practical when needed. Although she is very generous and concerned for others' wellbeing, she nevertheless appreciates the good things in life, comfort as well as money, and could turn out be an excellent business woman. As a child, she is very expressive and endearing. She is a sociable creature and is happiest when surrounded by friends, who tend to follow in her footsteps. Even so, she can also be rather snobbish, uncompromising, possessive and jealous; but so very devoted! She is likely to have quite a varied leisure timetable: toy car racing with her brothers followed by a tea party with her sisters, with dolls in between, this way she is able to conciliate her craving for action with her maternal instinct... She needs harmony as much as she needs air and water, and the family environment is likely to have a considerable influence on her development, either in a positive or negative sense.
