challenges and difficulties
Ashe doubts his own intelligence and mental capacities, and he may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Arthur is often overly serious and disinterested in light or superficial conversation. Spontaneous communication, social give-and-take, and making small talk are likely to be difficult for him.
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Arthur Ashe may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to him. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Arthur may tenaciously cling to his grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
His overall outlook on life is serious, and Arthur Ashe may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his steps!
He is not afraid of hard work and leaves no stone unturned in the pursuit of his objectives. Arthur Ashe 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 Arthur Ashe 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 Arthur Ashe needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Arthur Ashe's path lies in his development as an individual, the discovery of his own strengths and joys, the capacity to express his uniqueness and to stand out in a crowd. This involves becoming a leader, even though Ashe's instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Arthur Ashe is apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, he may believe that striving to do his personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but Arthur should let go of this notion. Finding his own center and doing what gives him delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Arthur Ashe can offer the world at large.
It is in any involvements he has with teams, clubs, organizations, networks, and the like that Arthur Ashe is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above need to be channeled into some sort of group effort or experience, or have some impact on society at large.
Not at all selfish, Arthur Ashe has the ability to share the joy he feels with other people. Arthur seems to have a gift for getting more reserved people to open up, teaching them how to give and receive love and affection.
Because of rigid and somewhat unpleasant family relationships, Arthur Ashe is inclined to seclude himself from others. He may prefer to live in archaic surroundings and could be interested in antiques.
