challenges and difficulties
Christina Rossetti has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. She is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that she discourages herself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Rossetti knows it should be done.
She frequently over analyze or pick things apart mentally. Christina Rossetti may be something of a hypochondriac also. Christina must learn that she does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax her unnecessarily high or strict standards.
She is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with her duty, her public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. Christina Rossetti understands the need for hard work and careful planning in order to accomplish anything substantial and she is capable of much self-discipline and patience once she sets her sights on a goal.
But Christina Rossetti is very judgmental and hard on herself if she fails to attain success, and she can become dry, bitter, or cynical if the world does not recognize her efforts.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Christina Rossetti 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 Christina Rossetti needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Her natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing her situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing her situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Christina Rossetti copes with stress. Christina Rossetti also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
Her development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Christina Rossetti to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in any involvements she has with teams, clubs, organizations, networks, and the like that Christina Rossetti is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above need to be channeled into some sort of group effort or experience, or have some impact on society at large.
The following are specific activities that will support Christina Rossetti in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Rossetti, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Christina Rossetti should foster self-discipline and learn to handle responsibility. She may shoulder an inordinate amount of responsibility as well as burdens that sometimes limit Rossetti'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 Christina 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 Rossetti's task is to learn to cope with pressure and persevere.
Her nature is a bit restless and unpredictable and because of this, others may see Christina as somewhat unstable. Christina Rossetti is inclined to involve herself with unusual enterprises and tends to become overly excited in the presence of other people.
