challenges and difficulties

She may have vague but ever-present feelings of guilt and fear that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Claudia Cardinale does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend herself from its dangers and its unknowns. Claudia Cardinale must learn to overcome her ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
Claudia Cardinale tends to be very sensitive to her surroundings and is strongly influenced by the prevailing conditions surrounding her. Claudia may feel that she has more obligations than she can properly handle, and that it is hopeless to even try.
Claudia Cardinale has a sense of duty and responsibility, but may find it difficult to make up her mind and come to a decision. Cardinale is somewhat slow to act, and her need to be fully prepared inclines her to let good opportunities slip away at times.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Claudia Cardinale 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 Claudia Cardinale needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
She is capable of withstanding outside influences and remaining constant and steady on her path, but when under stress Claudia Cardinale becomes downright obstinate and implacable, resisting any change no matter how necessary or desirable the change may be. Tenaciously trying to preserve the status quo and hold on to what she has, she is apt to ignore the subtle signals she receives about needing to do something differently, which often leads to a crisis.
Claudia Cardinale needs to learn the limits of her ability to control life, and to accept and even embrace change and loss of the familiar, in order to allow for new life and growth. "Letting go" is a major life lesson for her. Cardinale also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward her appetites and desires, as Claudia Cardinale tends to overindulge and/or deny herself excessively.
It is in her marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. She may see the qualities that she needs to develop more fully (described above) in her partner. It is important for Claudia Cardinale to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in her life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them herself. Claudia Cardinale has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about herself through others.
