challenges and difficulties
Getty is wary of becoming emotionally dependent on others, and may distance himself or deny his needs for relationships of closeness and intimacy so that he will not be vulnerable to rejection or abandonment. On the other hand, Balthazar Getty may cling excessively or need constant reassurance from loved ones and family. Developing a deep, inner sense of security, as well as the ability to give and receive nurturing are important tasks for Balthazar.
He is serious by nature, and may have difficulty making small talk or participating in friendly, personal exchanges.
Balthazar Getty tries to be strictly accurate and is critical of people who exaggerate or discuss subjects they really know little about. Getty withholds his thoughts and opinions until he has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Balthazar's silence discomforts others.
His mental concentration is very good but his breadth of understanding may not be.
Once he decides what he wants to do, Balthazar Getty will pursue his goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for his deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Balthazar feel a little out of step with others. Balthazar Getty takes things a little more seriously and has an inclination to be somewhat of a fanatic, although probably not flamboyantly so; as a result, others may not be aware of how deeply Balthazar feels and how driven he is about the things that are important to him. Balthazar Getty has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to him, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
Basically shy, Balthazar may become a bit inhibited when talking with other people. Balthazar Getty tends to withdraw from others and likes to live a humble, quiet life in seclusion. He may get involved with a group of a secretive nature, although Getty is not generally one to join groups.
Around others, Getty is somewhat humble and shy and prefers to be by himself. Balthazar Getty tends to limit his relationships with others and associates only with like-minded people. He is inclined to be cool and reserved even toward those he loves.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Balthazar Getty 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 Balthazar Getty needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Balthazar Getty to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. Balthazar Getty needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Balthazar directs his attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", he is apt to dabble, scatter his energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for his life and aligning his daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Getty's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.
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 Balthazar Getty to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in his life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them himself. Balthazar Getty has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about himself through others.
The following are specific activities that will support Balthazar Getty in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Getty, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Balthazar Getty should become more aware of the spiritual side of life and its underlying unity by getting involved in charitable activities and opening up his psychic channels. Meditation that develops Getty's intuitive abilities, as well as learning about the unseen side of life through his own dream experiences or altered states of awareness, can be important steps in Balthazar's path.
Moreover, musical and artistic or imaginative endeavors will be important to him.
