challenges and difficulties
Barbara Stanwyck often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something she cannot name or specify, and she may have both: great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.
Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or oversensitivity is an important task for Stanwyck.
Barbara Stanwyck takes her commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. Her strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Stanwyck a trustworthy and dedicated partner, but she often feels that marriage or any binding commitment between her and another person is too restrictive and burdensome, and thus seeks to avoid it. Close relationships may be more work than pleasure for Barbara Stanwyck and it may seem that she is always "working on" her marriage rather than enjoying it. However, Stanwyck will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
Once she decides what she wants to do, Barbara Stanwyck will pursue her goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for her deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Barbara feel a little out of step with others. Barbara Stanwyck 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 Barbara feels and how driven she is about the things that are important to her. Barbara Stanwyck has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to her, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Barbara Stanwyck 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 Barbara Stanwyck needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
When under stress, Barbara Stanwyck is apt to shut off the flow of her emotions and ignore her needs and feelings in order to do what she perceives as her duty or simply what the practical realities of the situation dictate. This can lead to a certain rigidity and inflexibility. If overdone, self-control, self-discipline, or an exaggerated concern over what society, family or others expect of her, makes life more of a burden than an adventure.
Fostering her tender, caring, feminine, and nurturing aspects is an important step in Barbara Stanwyck's growth. Barbara Stanwyck needs to learn how to nourish and lovingly tend to both herself and others. Letting herself be taken care of sometimes is okay!

Doing creative work that she is proud of - anything that comes from Stanwyck's heart and bears the stamp of Stanwyck's individuality - is important. Also, being a mentor, a helpful, encouraging force in the life of someone less experienced than she is a way for Barbara Stanwyck to grow and become more whole herself.
Barbara Stanwyck should develop faith and confidence both in herself and in a higher power that can guide, nourish, and help her.
