challenges and difficulties
Alan Alda often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something he cannot name or specify, and he may have both: great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.
Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or oversensitivity is an important task for Alda.
His fears revolve around money and material security, and Alan Alda works very hard to ensure that his assets are solid. He may be very conservative, even stingy, with his money because he is afraid there will not be enough. He may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
He may feel inhibited in his relationships with others and give the impression of being unapproachable and wanting to keeps his distance. Alan Alda thinks about his feelings a long time before he expresses them to anyone and he tends to hide his inner self.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Alan Alda instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that he is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for him. The direction Alan Alda needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Alan Alda has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that he is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Alan Alda needs to foster mature self-discipline, self-control, and personal responsibility.
When under stress, he has a strong instinct to retreat back to the nest, to be a child again, or to become overwhelmed with feelings and longings to be taken care of. Also, he may encourage others to depend on him emotionally (and otherwise) to an unhealthy degree. Alan Alda needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
It is in his relationships with others that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Alan Alda between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Alan Alda seesaws between being inordinately concerned with his self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about him. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Alda's task.
He is very social minded and it is easy for Alan Alda to show his affection. His family or community probably provided good possibilities for his development. Alda may love to show off a little and he thrives on being involved with others in joyful group activities.
