challenges and difficulties
Charles Mingus takes his personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort, and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing. He may feel that relationships in general require more of him than they are worth, and Charles enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. Charles Mingus also fears entrapment in close relationships.
He is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with his duty, his public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. Charles Mingus understands the need for hard work and careful planning in order to accomplish anything substantial and he is capable of much self-discipline and patience once he sets his sights on a goal.
But Charles Mingus is very judgmental and hard on himself if he fails to attain success, and he can become dry, bitter, or cynical if the world does not recognize his efforts.
He is not afraid of hard work and leaves no stone unturned in the pursuit of his objectives. Charles Mingus has a strong desire to overcome any difficulties or obstacles in his way and will do this at all cost, even if it means having to use force.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Charles Mingus 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 Charles Mingus 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, Charles stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Charles Mingus 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 Charles Mingus feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Charles Mingus calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Charles Mingus 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 public life and career that Charles Mingus is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The latter will impact Mingus' reputation and standing in his community or professional circle, as well as how Charles Mingus achieves his important life goals and aspirations.
The following are specific activities that will support Charles Mingus in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Mingus, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Charles Mingus should develop faith and confidence both in himself and in a higher power that can guide, nourish, and help him.

Being generous with his time, energy and resources in helping others achieve a better life will in turn benefit Charles Mingus.
Charles Mingus should foster self-discipline and learn to handle responsibility. He may shoulder an inordinate amount of responsibility as well as burdens that sometimes limit Mingus' activities and opportunities in life. However, this is a maturing and ultimately empowering process. He is also likely to be offered positions of tremendous responsibility, whether Charles really wants such jobs or not, usually because he has invested real effort and made some sort of substantial contribution.
There may be considerable obstacles in his path - more adversity than others seem to face - and Mingus' task is to learn to cope with pressure and persevere.

Charles should use extra care in his relationships with people, for he could easily end up in the wrong crowd. Charles Mingus could be the victim of fraud and falsehood or through association may become an accessory to malicious action.
