challenges and difficulties
Bo Derek has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, she prevents herself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Derek is more rigid and dogmatic than she realizes. Her approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Bo Derek takes her own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if she is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
Fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death may plague Bo. 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, Bo Derek is very careful about joining forces, and especially her material resources, with others. Derek wants to keep her own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
Once she decides what she wants to do, Bo Derek will pursue her goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for her deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Bo feel a little out of step with others. Bo Derek takes things a little more seriously and has an inclination to be somewhat of a fanatic, although probably not flamboyantly so; as a result, others may not be aware of how deeply Bo feels and how driven she is about the things that are important to her. Bo Derek has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to her, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Bo Derek 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 Bo Derek needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
She is capable of withstanding outside influences and remaining constant and steady on her path, but when under stress Bo Derek 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 she has, she is apt to ignore the subtle signals she receives about needing to do something differently, which often leads to a crisis.
Bo Derek needs to learn the limits of her 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 her. Derek also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward her appetites and desires, as Bo Derek tends to overindulge and/or deny herself excessively.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Bo Derek has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Derek 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 Bo Derek in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Derek, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Bo Derek should develop true self-confidence and the willingness to put herself "out there", be seen and shine. Bo needs to be willing to take on a leading role. She needs to be a hero - a protagonist in her own story - by cultivating the courageous, active, and positive masculine qualities she possesses. Doing creative work that she is proud of - anything that comes from Derek's heart and bears the stamp of Derek's individuality - is important. Also, being a mentor, a helpful, encouraging force in the life of someone less experienced than she is a way for Bo Derek to grow and become more whole herself.
Bo Derek has to learn to communicate and express herself through the written or spoken word. It is best for Bo to study, learn skills and develop her intellectual interests and capacities. Derek needs to become involved in sharing and exchanging information with others and in developing her intellectual reasoning ability. Bo Derek should practice using her mind, her thinking skills and her ability to be objective. "Work smarter, not harder" might be a motto for her.
Writing, teaching, recording, transcribing, dialoguing, negotiating, mediating, communicating, or facilitating clear communication are significant activities for Bo Derek to pursue.
Bo Derek should foster self-discipline and learn to handle responsibility. She may shoulder an inordinate amount of responsibility as well as burdens that sometimes limit Derek's activities and opportunities in life. However, this is a maturing and ultimately empowering process. She is also likely to be offered positions of tremendous responsibility, whether Bo really wants such jobs or not, usually because she has invested real effort and made some sort of substantial contribution.
There may be considerable obstacles in her path - more adversity than others seem to face - and Derek's task is to learn to cope with pressure and persevere.
Bo Derek has a very affectionate attitude toward others and the capacity to love a lot of people. There probably is a very deep bond between Bo and her friends, and when she falls in love, Bo Derek is likely to love just as deeply.
Her nature is a bit restless and unpredictable and because of this, others may see Bo as somewhat unstable. Bo Derek is inclined to involve herself with unusual enterprises and tends to become overly excited in the presence of other people.
