challenges and difficulties
Bette has difficulty asserting her will and desires directly and openly. She may also suppress her anger and aggressiveness. Developing self-confidence, courage, and faith in herself are important tasks for Davis.
Her childhood or her relationships with her parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent Bette from allowing other people to get close to her in later life. Bette Davis felt deprived in some manner, whether or not she actually was deprived in some way. Emotional separations or repression of her needs and feelings may typify her early life, at least as Davis remembers it. Forgiving her parents and/or letting go of any resentments she has about the limitations that she experienced early in her life is crucial. Also, Bette Davis needs to build her own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into her home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Bette accomplish this.
Bette Davis has a serious outlook on life and a tendency to dwell on her own flaws as well as those of everyone else. Davis could be rather reserved with people and may find it difficult to express herself, giving a more negative impression than she intended.
She is inclined to exercise self-control and tries to suppress her inner excitability or irritability. Davis can be somewhat self-willed, though, and strive to be independent. If Bette Davis feels that someone is holding her down too much, she may suddenly break up the relationship.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Bette Davis 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 Bette Davis needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
When under stress, Bette Davis 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 Bette Davis' growth. Bette Davis needs to learn how to nourish and lovingly tend to both herself and others. Letting herself be taken care of sometimes is okay!
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Bette Davis has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Davis will see these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual dependency involved. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
The following are specific activities that will support Bette Davis in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Davis, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Bette Davis should become more aware of the spiritual side of life and its underlying unity by getting involved in charitable activities and opening up her psychic channels. Meditation that develops Davis' intuitive abilities, as well as learning about the unseen side of life through her own dream experiences or altered states of awareness, can be important steps in Bette's path.
Moreover, musical and artistic or imaginative endeavors will be important to her.
She is very social and her relationships with others are very warm and expansive. It is essential for Bette's emotional welfare to be surrounded by people and she is an active member of groups or associations she belongs to.
