challenges and difficulties
Dennis Hopper often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something he cannot name or specify, and he may have both: great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.
Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or oversensitivity is an important task for Hopper.
He is serious-minded and may have difficulty making light social conversation or participating in friendly, personal interchanges.
Dennis Hopper tries to be strictly accurate and he is critical of people who exaggerate or talk on subjects they really know little about. Hopper withholds his thoughts and opinions until he has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Dennis' silence discomforts others.
His mental concentration is very good but his breadth of understanding may not be.
Dennis has an inner conflict between idealism, hope, and faith in the future versus doubt and oppression by limitations and practical realities. Dennis Hopper needs to develop discipline and patience in order to achieve his aspirations. Hopper will grow by learning to accept frustration and to persevere in spite of obstacles.
Dennis Hopper tends to be somewhat insecure and uncertain about his direction of life. Frequently plagued by doubt and fear, he is inclined to worry a lot. Because Hopper lacks the confidence to fight back, he may allow himself to become the victim of other people.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Dennis Hopper instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that he is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for him. The direction Dennis Hopper needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Dennis Hopper has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that he is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Dennis Hopper needs to foster mature self-discipline, self-control, and personal responsibility.
When under stress, he has a strong instinct to retreat back to the nest, to be a child again, or to become overwhelmed with feelings and longings to be taken care of. Also, he may encourage others to depend on him emotionally (and otherwise) to an unhealthy degree. Dennis Hopper needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
It is in his relationships with others that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Dennis Hopper between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Dennis Hopper seesaws between being inordinately concerned with his self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about him. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Hopper's task.
Hopper considers the ability to think and speak convincingly as the most powerful instrument one can possess. He always strives for intellectual control in his environment and tends to dominate his relationships. Dennis Hopper has a strong desire to be the spokesman in his community.
