Wild Rose is indicated for those who are resigned to an unpleasant situation, whether illness, a monotonous life or uncongenial work. They do not complain and are too apathetic to get well, change their occupation or enjoy simple pleasures. Although their situations are unsatisfactory, they are not actually unhappy and make no effort to change their circumstances. This makes them rather dull as companions, and unable to fulfil their potential.
When ill, they are over-accepting of medical prognoses such as 'you must learn to live with it'. They are resigned, rather than depressed, at the prospect and accept life the way it is. They lack energy and ambition.
The positive potential of Wild Rose is a lively interest in life, work and the world in general. Resignation gives way to ambition and a sense of purpose, good health and enjoyable friendships. Positive Wild Rose people accept responsibility for their own lives and circumstances and use their initiative to make changes.
