challenges and difficulties
Ava Gardner takes her personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort, and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing. She may feel that relationships in general require more of her than they are worth, and Ava enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. Ava Gardner also fears entrapment in close relationships.
Her childhood or her relationships with her parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent Ava from allowing other people to get close to her in later life. Ava Gardner felt deprived in some manner, whether or not she actually was deprived in some way. Emotional separations or repression of her needs and feelings may typify her early life, at least as Gardner remembers it. Forgiving her parents and/or letting go of any resentments she has about the limitations that she experienced early in her life is crucial. Also, Ava Gardner needs to build her own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into her home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Ava accomplish this.
Somewhat inhibited in initiating relationships with others, Ava Gardner may prefer to be by herself. Ava could feels that she does not fit in very well with others and as a result may have difficulties in team-work with groups or associations.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Ava Gardner 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 Ava Gardner needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Her natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing her situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing her situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Ava Gardner copes with stress. Ava Gardner also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
Her development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Ava Gardner to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in her way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Ava Gardner is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Gardner's relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, she needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
