challenges and difficulties
Bijou Phillips has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. She is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that she discourages herself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Phillips knows it should be done.
She frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Bijou Phillips may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Bijou must learn that she does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax her unnecessarily high or strict standards.
She is serious by nature, and may have difficulty making small talk or participating in friendly, personal exchanges.
Bijou Phillips tries to be strictly accurate and is critical of people who exaggerate or discuss subjects they really know little about. Phillips withholds her thoughts and opinions until she has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Bijou's silence discomforts others.
Her mental concentration is very good but her breadth of understanding may not be.
Bijou Phillips strives and struggles a great deal with her ideals or spiritual aspirations. She may go through periods of self-denial, asceticism, and in-depth study of religious philosophy and spiritual practices, or she may lose heart and become cynical about religious ideals; however, she can never quite divorce herself from her idealistic concerns.
She is not afraid of hard work and leaves no stone unturned in the pursuit of her objectives. Bijou Phillips has a strong desire to overcome any difficulties or obstacles in her way and will do this at all cost, even if it means having to use force.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Bijou Phillips 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 Bijou Phillips needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Bijou Phillips' path lies in her development as an individual, the discovery of her own strengths and joys, the capacity to express her uniqueness and to stand out in a crowd. This involves becoming a leader, even though Phillips' instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Bijou Phillips is apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, she may believe that striving to do her personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but Bijou should let go of this notion. Finding her own center and doing what gives her delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Bijou Phillips can offer the world at large.
It is in her dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Bijou Phillips needs to integrate in tangible ways: how she makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what she does with the resources she has. Bijou Phillips should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
The following are specific activities that will support Bijou Phillips in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Phillips, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Bijou Phillips should become a warrior and cultivate a positive, victorious, active approach to life and to any problems she faces. It is in Phillips' best interest to act on her own behalf instead of stalling, waiting or hoping someone else will do it for her. Bijou Phillips needs to assert herself openly and courageously and not to be afraid to make mistakes or stumble; there are bound to be a few trial runs to any new initiative. Bijou needs to foster a healthy fighting spirit, pick herself up, and go! She also should learn to appreciate conflict and confrontation as a means to grow.
Bijou Phillips should develop faith and confidence both in herself and in a higher power that can guide, nourish, and help her. She needs to expand her willingness to dream and envision better things in life by studying religion, philosophy and other subjects that enable her to acquire a larger, more inclusive view of the world.
Being generous with her time, energy and resources in helping others achieve a better life will in turn benefit Bijou Phillips.
