challenges and difficulties
Blanchett either overvalues or undervalues her possessions and assets. She can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. Cate Blanchett may deny herself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of her labors. She may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Cate Blanchett feels that she does not have "enough" to make her feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) she has!
Her attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Cate Blanchett may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to her. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Cate may tenaciously cling to her grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
Her overall outlook on life is serious, and Cate Blanchett may feel that life or God will punish her if she does not watch her steps!
The side of Cate Blanchett that wants and needs structure, order, stability, and a disciplined way of life is at odds with her urges for unfettered freedom, change, excitement, and discovery. There is apt to be much discontent, inner stress, and tension due to this, and at times Cate finds it hard to relax. Cate Blanchett may act out in a rebellious way now and then, or clamp down hard on herself, in an attempt to strictly control her "wild" impulses. Blanchett's task is to try to find a reasonable balance between order and creative chaos in her life.
She is quite cool and reserved in matters of love relationships and tends to hold back her inclination for love. Somewhat inhibited in regard to relationships, Cate Blanchett is inclined to feel that she is better off staying by herself.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Cate Blanchett 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 Cate Blanchett needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Blanchett's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, she is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and she can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Cate Blanchett has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. She should let her feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use her imagination and let her dreams emerge!
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Cate Blanchett has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Blanchett 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.
