challenges and difficulties
Carl has an innate distrust of groups and/or a cynical attitude toward society that may leave him feeling out of step and unable to participate in activities with his peers. Overcoming a sense of aloofness and alienation from others is an important task for Jung.
Carl Jung has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life which colors everything he does. Caution and realism are his virtues though Carl limits himself at times by being too careful, shy, or fearful, and not believing in himself enough or being assertive when necessary. Others find Carl Jung difficult to get to know intimately, as Jung tends to distance himself from them or to put forth a rather stern, "adult" face to the world.
Once he decides what he wants to do, Carl Jung will pursue his goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for his deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Carl feel a little out of step with others. Carl Jung 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 Carl feels and how driven he is about the things that are important to him. Carl Jung has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to him, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Carl Jung 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 Carl Jung needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Seeking harmonious interpersonal relationships, cooperation, and togetherness, as well as the desire to please or appease other people, are drives that come very naturally to Carl Jung - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Jung tends to look outside himself for approval or answers, and he leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge his own path through life is a key factor in his self-development.
Carl Jung is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about his intentions or desires, and he can become enmeshed in a quagmire of "little white lies". Stark honesty - both inward and toward others - is the only way out! This, however, leads to the need to confront some of Jung's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Carl Jung needs to cultivate his ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on his own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in his dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Carl Jung needs to integrate in tangible ways: how he makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what he does with the resources he has. Carl Jung should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
He is a born leader and has the ability to persuade members of a group or association he belongs to. Jung always promotes the cultivation of good fellowship and teamwork, insuring success in any plans or joint undertakings he may pursue.
