challenges and difficulties
Mussolini doubts his own intelligence and mental capacities, and he may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Benito is often overly serious and disinterested in light or superficial conversation. Spontaneous communication, social give-and-take, and making small talk are likely to be difficult for him.
Benito Mussolini takes his commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. His strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Mussolini a trustworthy and dedicated partner, but he often feels that marriage or any binding commitment between him and another person is too restrictive and burdensome, and thus seeks to avoid it. Close relationships may be more work than pleasure for Benito Mussolini and it may seem that he is always "working on" his marriage rather than enjoying it. However, Mussolini will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
He is suspicious of groups, crowds, and social organizations. Mussolini is quick to pick up on social charades and insincerity and avoids the limelight and glamour. Benito Mussolini is direct and to the point in speech and manner, stubborn and inflexible, and often unwilling to communicate his innermost feelings and thoughts.
He is not afraid of hard work and leaves no stone unturned in the pursuit of his objectives. Benito Mussolini has a strong desire to overcome any difficulties or obstacles in his way and will do this at all cost, even if it means having to use force.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Benito Mussolini 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 Benito Mussolini needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
He is capable of withstanding outside influences and remaining constant and steady on his path, but when under stress Benito Mussolini becomes downright obstinate and implacable, resisting any change no matter how necessary or desirable the change may be. Tenaciously trying to preserve the status quo and hold on to what he has, he is apt to ignore the subtle signals he receives about needing to do something differently, which often leads to a crisis.
Benito Mussolini needs to learn the limits of his ability to control life, and to accept and even embrace change and loss of the familiar, in order to allow for new life and growth. "Letting go" is a major life lesson for him. Mussolini also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward his appetites and desires, as Benito Mussolini tends to overindulge and/or deny himself excessively.
It is deep within himself, as Benito Mussolini faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Benito Mussolini keeps hidden from public view where he is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
The qualities described above can also be beneficially channeled into some sort of charitable work, altruistic service or ministering to people in need.
