challenges and difficulties
Chanel doubts her own intelligence and mental capacities, and she may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Coco is often overly serious and disinterested in light or superficial conversation. Spontaneous communication, social give-and-take, and making small talk are likely to be difficult for her.
It may be difficult for Coco Chanel to play spontaneously or just let her hair down, for she tends to inhibit that side of her by being too self-conscious and concerned with the impression she is making.
Coco may work very hard at some sport or creative medium in order to excel, for she wants very, very much to be noticed, acknowledged, and recognized as special in some way. Though she may indeed be outstanding, Coco Chanel also needs to learn to relax and enjoy herself more.
She is inclined to feel inferior and may easily be taken in by others. Coco has to guard against being deceived or used by others, though her intentions may be good. Coco Chanel must not let her desire to have things cloud her ability to see what is really happening.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Coco Chanel 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 Coco Chanel 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 Coco Chanel 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.
Coco Chanel 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. Chanel also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward her appetites and desires, as Coco Chanel tends to overindulge and/or deny herself excessively.
It is in her public life and career that Coco Chanel is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The latter will impact Chanel's reputation and standing in her community or professional circle, as well as how Coco Chanel achieves her important life goals and aspirations.
Chanel cooperates with others in a vigorous and energetic way. Her motto seems to be "one for all and all for one", and she feels strongly connected with others. In fact, Coco Chanel looks upon other people as necessary for a worthwhile life.
