challenges and difficulties
Charles has difficulty asserting his will and desires directly and openly. He may also suppress his anger and aggressiveness. Developing self-confidence, courage, and faith in himself are important tasks for Baudelaire.
Fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death may plague Charles. He strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for him.
On another level entirely, Charles Baudelaire is very careful about joining forces, and especially his material resources, with others. Baudelaire wants to keep his own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Charles Baudelaire 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 Charles Baudelaire needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Baudelaire's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, he is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and he can easily become problem-oriented and loose sight of the big picture.
Charles Baudelaire has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. He should let his feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use his imagination and let his dreams emerge!
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 Charles Baudelaire to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in his life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them himself. Charles Baudelaire has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about himself through others.
