challenges and difficulties
Antonio Banderas has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Antonio is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack joyfulness and the ability to play. Antonio Banderas often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Banderas' which may inhibit him a great deal. Antonio Banderas must avoid becoming heavy and cynical, or becoming a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose practicality and realism squeeze out the playful, imaginative side of life.
Banderas 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 Antonio Banderas 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 Antonio Banderas better than being with groups of his own peers.
His vitality tends to be a bit low and Antonio may have to fight against the tendency to be inactive. Easily discouraged, Antonio Banderas is inclined toward pessimism. Perhaps his upbringing was too authoritative, causing problems in his relationships with his parents.
He is subject to rash decisions and impulsive actions that may have sudden, unexpected consequences and undesirable results. Not very adaptable, Antonio Banderas could have considerable tension in his relationships and is likely to have disputes or even violent fights with others.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Antonio Banderas 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 Antonio Banderas needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
His natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing his situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing his situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Antonio Banderas copes with stress. Antonio Banderas also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
His development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Antonio Banderas to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in his marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. He may see the qualities that he needs to develop more fully (described above) in his partner. It is important for Antonio Banderas to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in his life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them himself. Antonio Banderas has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about himself through others.
