April's Emotional Types
Kali: the warrior for
justice who destroys all that no longer serves replacing it with systems that do
The defender of women and children who have been abused.
Growing wise from wandering in poverty and struggle,
her ability to survive is as relentless as her ability to love symbolized by the color green which is the anticipation of things to come.
She loves unconditionally,
but not always wisely.
She dances, sings, flirts.
She eats life
in one full swallow
and then she weeps
Because no one can love her enough
and the world is not as beautiful
as she tastes it to be.

blind goddess oblivious to her beauty, her lovability
The lone wolf with a masculine way of getting things done and a fiercesome protectiveness of those they choose to allow in...intelligence is their weapon and their armour
They long for a love that will change them and complete their better half. But they are long in finding it, and adamant that it be a deeply felt, deeply committed, unconditional melding of souls.
The journey is so long mostly because they never expected to be loved or cherished, so when it does happen, this person is at a loss for words, actions and expectations. They become clumsy with joy and awash in their deeply sensual waters for that one special someone.

the teacher, the healer of broken dreams and protector of those who have been abused
The wise thinker, organic intellectual, dreamer in search of beauty, happiness, truth and flights of serendipitous grace...she is able to intuit the pain of another and anticipate their needs before they can. Her wisdom comes from the kind of deep pain and monumental loss that the average person would never recover from. Because she doesn't expect to ever heal from it, her only recourse is to shield others from the mistakes she has made on her journey. She is often ruthless in her love, but constant. She expects greatness from the ones she chooses to teach.

Indigo, Periwinkle, Cobalt, , Burgundy
the dark spirit determined to become more than what was promised
The person carrying a world of hurt... who has suffered great violence/trauma and survives by sheer dint of will: alone.
The walls that surround this heart seem impenetrable, but it is the courage to be vulnerable that gives this soul its light.
Vulnerability is hard-won, but transformative for this one....
