The Minx’s Magnetic Power
People view you as someone who’s always on the go with somewhere interesting to be. You have a vibrant attitude and live on your terms. Your style is edgy, contemporary, and sporty. When you dress, you gravitate toward high-low styles, boyfriend sizes, and athletic fits. Your preference lies in fashionable sneakers over heels because prim and proper is not your energy. When it comes to a beauty routine, you generally do whatever you’re in the mood for but rarely make a huge deal about it because you find yourself content either way. People are attracted to how self-assured you are.
Your originality is your best asset, and you have an it-factor that many cannot duplicate. Ultimately, you’re happiest when you get to express yourself and have something to look forward to. Conformity is not your forte. However, when you’re fully utilizing the power of this archetype, you attract an adventurous lifestyle.
The Minx archetype for women uses her individualism to enthrall. She often makes a living through artistic expression, design, or even social work. These women often attract partners who soften their edge.
The Shadow Side of the Minx
Individualism is your asset, but it can work against you…
Individuality is your ideal because you perfectly understand that you are your only competition and commit to staying true to your beliefs. Aaliyah always had an opinion about what she wanted to wear, and the world listened. She wore a white lace pantsuit in 1997 when most girls were wearing more traditional dresses for their proms. The look combined boyish silhouettes with sexually assertive details that made her stand out from other people who seemed less interested in being themselves than looking like everyone else.
The shadow side of this archetype is avoiding vulnerability and pushing people away. You may even develop resentment for other women who don’t share your beliefs. If you haven’t mastered the art of leveraging your Minx energy, you may find it challenging to develop healthy boundaries.
