Brian De Palma
challenges and difficulties
De Palma either overvalues or undervalues his possessions and assets. He can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. Brian De Palma may deny himself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of his labors. He may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Brian De Palma feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
His fears revolve around money and material security, and Brian De Palma works very hard to ensure that his assets are solid. He may be very conservative, even stingy, with his money because he is afraid there will not be enough. He may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
His aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Brian De Palma pursues his aims in a systematic, disciplined, and thorough manner, and he is willing to takes his time, advancing slowly and steadily on his way towards his goal.
Sometimes Brian De Palma underestimates what is possible, and holds himself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Brian De Palma instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that he is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for him. The direction Brian De Palma needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Instinctively he is a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary. Very often, however, Brian stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Brian De Palma has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that he must be self-reliant and that only he can come up with the answers he needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate him from others, or make Brian De Palma feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Brian De Palma calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Brian De Palma needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
It is in his marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. He may see the qualities that he needs to develop more fully (described above) in his partner. It is important for Brian De Palma to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in his life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them himself. Brian De Palma has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about himself through others.
Brian De Palma has a very affectionate attitude toward others and the capacity to love a lot of people. There probably is a very deep bond between Brian and his friends, and when he falls in love, Brian De Palma is likely to love just as deeply.
