challenges and difficulties
Burke is wary of becoming emotionally dependent on others, and may distance herself or deny her needs for relationships of closeness and intimacy so that she will not be vulnerable to rejection or abandonment. On the other hand, Billie Burke may cling excessively or need constant reassurance from loved ones and family. Developing a deep, inner sense of security, as well as the ability to give and receive nurturing are important tasks for Billie.
Billie may be plagued by fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death. 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, Billie Burke is very careful about joining forces, and especially her material resources, with others. Burke wants to keep her own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
Billie Burke becomes tense and upset rather easily. She becomes irritated by the unwillingness of others to make changes. In her eagerness to see her inspirations materialize, Burke is inclined to forego tact and diplomacy in favor of achieving her goals. Her occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
Her physical vitality and mental energy tend to be somewhat low. For this reason Billie Burke should try to avoid any unnecessary emotional and physical stress and maintain good health habits in order to enhance her resistance to illness.
Billie Burke has a tendency to be overly critical of herself. She may be plagued by feelings of guilt about certain past events, leading to further self-doubt. Billie must learn to handle her frustration, depression and discontent and try to overcome her lack of self-confidence.
Billie Burke tends to be somewhat insecure and uncertain about her direction in life. Frequently plagued by doubt and fear, she is inclined to worry a lot. Because Burke lacks the confidence to fight back, she may allow herself to become the victim of others.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Billie Burke 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 Billie Burke needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Her natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing her situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing her situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Billie Burke copes with stress. Billie Burke also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
Her development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Billie Burke to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in any involvements she has with teams, clubs, organizations, networks, and the like that Billie Burke is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above need to be channeled into some sort of group effort or experience, or have some impact on society at large.
The following are specific activities that will support Billie Burke in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Burke, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Billie Burke should be willing to become more of a free thinker, to experiment and change, to loosen her ties to tradition and the known and to allow for new developments. She needs to practice getting involved in an area involving new techniques, rapid changes and innovation. Billie can be part of the avant-garde promoting such changes - be it in science, music or social relationships. Billie Burke has to be willing to be different and perhaps to be considered eccentric or odd.
Billie Burke has a very obliging manner and is always in search of new relationships. She is able to identify with people quite easily and probably will make many friends who can be of help to her.
