challenges and difficulties
Amy has difficulty asserting her will and desires directly and openly. She may also suppress her anger and aggressiveness. Developing self-confidence, courage, and faith in herself are important tasks for Carter.
Her attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Amy Carter may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to her. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Amy may tenaciously cling to her grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
Her overall outlook on life is serious, and Amy Carter may feel that life or God will punish her if she does not watch her steps!
Her ambition and desire for power could be somewhat out of proportion and Carter can be quite ruthless in dealing with obstacles and difficulties she may be faced with. Amy Carter must learn to control her temper and be willing to compromise.
She is likely to find it hard to make decisions, looking forward to the future with great enthusiasm on one hand, but afraid of misjudgments on the other. Never quite sure about anything, Amy Carter may withdraw from situations and people periodically.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Amy Carter instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that she is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for her. The direction Amy Carter needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Seeking harmonious interpersonal relationships, cooperation, and togetherness, as well as the desire to please or appease other people, are drives that come very naturally to Amy Carter - so much so that she seeks them out at her own expense. When she is under stress, Carter tends to look outside herself for approval or answers, and she leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge her own path through life is a key factor in her self-development.
Amy Carter is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about her intentions or desires, and she can become enmeshed in a quagmire of "little white lies". Stark honesty - both inward and toward others - is the only way out! This, however, leads to the need to confront some of Carter's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Amy Carter needs to cultivate her ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on her own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in her public life and career that Amy Carter is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The latter will impact Carter's reputation and standing in her community or professional circle, as well as how Amy Carter achieves her important life goals and aspirations.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Amy Carter back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Being excessively egocentric or proud, needing personal recognition and applause, wanting to be center stage all the time, needing to be important and special.
The following are specific activities that will support Amy Carter in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Carter, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Amy Carter should care for and nourish children, plants, pets or other people. She needs to make a home, create and sustain strong relationships with her family or a community that can support her and give her a sense of safety and belonging.
Amy Carter should develop her listening skills and deepen her understanding and appreciation of women and their perspective. Amy Carter has to learn to trust her own feelings, intuitions and emotional needs. She needs to care for herself in an accepting, non-judgmental way.
It is in Amy Carter's best interest to take all that is good and helpful from her past and use it in a new way. (If she is so inclined, Amy may want to explore the potential of past-life regression to tap into gifts she has already developed).
Carter is able to achieve good cooperation with people, and others see her as a welcome comrade. Amy likes to work hand in hand with everyone and has an excellent sense of team-work.
