challenges and difficulties
Ayrton Senna has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Ayrton is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack the capacity for joy and play. Ayrton Senna 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 Senna's that may inhibit him a great deal. Ayrton Senna must avoid becoming cumbersome and cynical, or a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose sense of practicality and realism rob him of the playful, imaginative side of life.
He may have vague but ever-present feelings of guilt and fear that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Ayrton Senna does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend himself from its dangers and its unknowns. Ayrton Senna must learn to overcome his ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
The side of Ayrton Senna that wants and needs structure, order, stability, and a disciplined way of life is at odds with his urges for unfettered freedom, change, excitement, and discovery. There is apt to be much discontent, inner stress, and tension as a result, and at times Ayrton finds it hard to relax. Ayrton Senna may act out in a rebellious way now and then, or clamp down hard on himself, in an attempt to strictly control his "wild" impulses. Senna's task is to try to find a reasonable balance between order and creative chaos in his life.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Ayrton Senna 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 Ayrton Senna 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 Ayrton Senna copes with stress. Ayrton Senna 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 Ayrton Senna to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Ayrton Senna has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Senna will see these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual dependency involved. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
