challenges and difficulties
H2O either overvalues or undervalues his possessions and assets. He can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. Allan Houston may deny himself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of his labors. He may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Allan Houston feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
H2O is generally not a "joiner" and he does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If Allan Houston does participate in a group, he may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or he may simply feel that he does not fit in with the others.
Being alone or with older, more experienced people suits Allan Houston better than being with groups of his own peers.
He is not afraid of hard work and leaves no stone unturned in the pursuit of his objectives. Allan Houston has a strong desire to overcome any difficulties or obstacles in his way and will do this at all cost, even if it means having to use force.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Allan Houston 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 Allan Houston needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Allan Houston's path lies in cultivating idealism and humanitarian feelings, being concerned with how H2O's actions impact the world at large, perhaps becoming more aware of the social implications of H2O's life style and personal choices or becoming active politically. Participating in organizations that support H2O's ideals is one way to do this.
When under stress he is likely to become overly focused on himself and his own little world.
Instead of "how will this benefit or hurt me?" H2O's focus needs to shift to "how will this affect us all?".
Ideally, Allan Houston needs to strike a balance between doing for himself and doing for others, by discovering how H2O's unique gifts can benefit others.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Allan Houston has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. H2O will see these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual dependency involved. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
Allan Houston has a strong desire to acquire a leading position in his community. Although he is very capable of assuming leadership, Allan also has a tendency to impose his will upon others. But in spite of that, he is likely to be successful.
Allan Houston tends to have deep bonds with the people he associates with and is likely to encounter some unusual or fated relationships. Some of his contacts could be with very influential people who may be of help to H2O in the future.
