challenges and difficulties
Bernadette has an innate distrust of groups and/or a cynical attitude toward society that may leave her feeling out of step and unable to participate in activities with her peers. Overcoming a sense of aloofness and alienation from others is an important task for Chirac.
Fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death may plague Bernadette. She strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for her.
On another level entirely, Bernadette Chirac is very careful about joining forces, and especially her material resources, with others. Chirac wants to keep her own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
Her faith, optimism, and sense of possibilities are tempered by much caution, and often doubt or skepticism as well. Whatever hopes or visions Bernadette Chirac has for her life are firmly held in check by her sense of reality. At times she may wish for more freedom, but Bernadette also fears it and hang back. Bernadette Chirac may blame practical limitations or some external condition or the prevailing Authority for her own inhibitions.
Very cautious and reserved, Bernadette Chirac could find it difficult to express herself. She is a bit inhibited around others and does not seem to get much cooperation from them, causing Bernadette to be disappointed.
At times circumstances seem to be pushing against Bernadette, and she may have to withstand severe challenges. Bernadette Chirac will probably have to work harder than others in order to succeed, turning her hard and cold hearted in her decisions because of it.
She is susceptible to deception by others and may encounter people who dissuade her from her objectives and try to use her vulnerability to their advantage. Bernadette Chirac should watch her relationships very carefully so she will not get seriously hurt or disappointed.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Bernadette Chirac 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 Bernadette Chirac 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 Chirac's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, she is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and she can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Bernadette Chirac has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. She should let her feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use her imagination and let her dreams emerge!
It is in fostering a personal vision or philosophy of life, whether through religious or philosophical studies, education or the wisdom of distant lands or cultures that Bernadette Chirac is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Bernadette Chirac needs to cultivate the qualities described above in this endeavor. Long distance communication and involvement with foreigners is likely to be significant to Chirac.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Bernadette Chirac back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
The need to be first all of the time and demonstrate an aggressive or bossy attitude, impatience or irritability; an over-eagerness to use force or violence to gain advantage and the tendency to resort to fighting or using confrontation too quickly.
Escapism through fantasy, intoxicants, or passive, vicarious activities (television, movies, etc.), waiting for a miracle instead of taking constructive steps to help herself, aimlessness or an inability to make and keep commitments, and self deception regarding other people. Bernadette has a tendency to be a martyr.
