challenges and difficulties
Claire Danes 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 Danes knows it should be done.
She frequently over analyze or pick things apart mentally. Claire Danes may be something of a hypochondriac also. Claire 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.
Her fears revolve around money and material security, and Claire Danes works very hard to ensure that her assets are solid. She may be very conservative, even stingy, with her money because she is afraid there will not be enough. She may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
At times circumstances seem to be pushing against Claire, and she may have to withstand severe challenges. Claire Danes will probably have to work harder than others in order to succeed, turning her hard and cold hearted in her decisions because of it.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Claire Danes 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 Claire Danes 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 Claire Danes copes with stress. Claire Danes 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 Claire Danes to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in her dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Claire Danes needs to integrate in tangible ways: how she makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what she does with the resources she has. Claire Danes should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Claire Danes back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
The tendency for self-indulgence, laziness, and over-reliance on the generosity or affection of others, as well as making love relationships, social life and superficial pleasures more important than anything else in her life.
