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.
What does she like?
Her dream is one that is within her reach: she wants to influence people, to be a living, breathing example for others, and she intends to reach dizzy heights, one day. Luckily, she is also prepared to make the necessary effort to get there. In romance she needs to be able to admire her partner, and his social status is likely to be of considerable importance to her, or he had better be extremely intelligent. However, her true nature is quite dominant, and it might not be an easy task dominating and admiring the same man!... Happily, her active number 26 takes her in the precise direction that is needed to achieve and maintain an equilibrium that is quite fragile, after all. Nevertheless, she definitely isn't cut out for the role of a meek and mild housewife!
What does she do?
Gretchen could be attracted to professions in connection with the world of business (management, finance, banking...), liberal or independent occupations, those in relation with the notion of power (police...) or action (sport), of an esoteric or parapsychologic nature, or in relation to the latest, cutting-edge or very specialized technology.
Note: Two or more first names can have the same meaning - this is intended. Indeed, the names have the same numerology numbers. It's just like in astrology when two people with the same sign share the same characteristics!
