challenges and difficulties
Anna Wintour has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. She is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that she discourages herself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Wintour knows it should be done.
She frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Anna Wintour may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Anna must learn that she does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax her unnecessarily high or strict standards.
Anna may be plagued by fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death. She strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for her.
On another level entirely, Anna Wintour is very careful about joining forces, and especially her material resources, with others. Wintour wants to keep her own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
Anna Wintour tends to have a pessimistic outlook and she seems to be plagued by deep inner conflicts, which could severely undermine her strength. Self-critical and uncertain about her goals, Anna feels that she cannot live up to her ideals and ends up disappointed.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Anna Wintour 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 Anna Wintour 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 Anna Wintour - so much so that she seeks them out at her own expense. When she is under stress, Wintour 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.
Anna Wintour 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 Wintour's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Anna Wintour 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 way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Anna Wintour is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Wintour's relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, she needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Anna Wintour back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Escapism through fantasy, intoxicants, or passive, vicarious activities (television, movies, etc.), waiting for a miracle instead of taking constructive steps to help herself, aimlessness or an inability to make and keep commitments, and self deception regarding other people. Anna has a tendency to be a martyr.
The following are specific activities that will support Anna Wintour in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Wintour, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Anna Wintour 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.
Anna Wintour should develop her listening skills and deepen her understanding and appreciation of women and their perspective. Anna Wintour 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 Anna Wintour'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, Anna may want to explore the potential of past-life regression to tap into gifts she has already developed).
She is gay and cheerful in the company of others and happy to be with them. Anna Wintour is fond of telling jokes and is likely to entertain everyone. Her relationships with others tend to be for a common purpose.
Anna Wintour often tends to feel sad and may sympathize with people who are "in the same boat". She is likely to cling to old things and wants to pass on her traditions.
