challenges and difficulties
Claudia Trieste 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 Trieste knows it should be done.
She frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Claudia Trieste may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Claudia 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.
Claudia Trieste takes her commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. Her strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Trieste a trustworthy and dedicated partner, but she often feels that marriage or any binding commitment between her and another person is too restrictive and burdensome, and thus seeks to avoid it. Close relationships may be more work than pleasure for Claudia Trieste and it may seem that she is always "working on" her marriage rather than enjoying it. However, Trieste will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Claudia Trieste 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 Trieste 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 Claudia Trieste copes with stress. Claudia Trieste 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 Claudia Trieste to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Claudia Trieste has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Trieste 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.
The following are specific activities that will support Claudia Trieste in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Trieste, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Claudia Trieste should foster self-discipline and learn to handle responsibility. She may shoulder an inordinate amount of responsibility as well as burdens that sometimes limit Trieste'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 Claudia 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 Trieste's task is to learn to cope with pressure and persevere.
Claudia Trieste tends to feel inferior and her attitude in the presence of others could be a bit negative or weak. She is inclined to shy away from groups and would be a rather quiet and passive member of an organization or association.
She enjoys relationships with others who can tune into the spiritual world and Claudia Trieste is likely to join groups or associations that sponsor psychics and that explore the connection with karmic influences.
