challenges and difficulties
Diane Ladd often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something she cannot name or specify, and she 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 Ladd.
It may be difficult for Diane Ladd 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.
Diane 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, Diane Ladd also needs to learn to relax and enjoy herself more.
Diane has an inner conflict between idealism, hope, and faith in the future versus doubt and oppression by limitations and practical realities. Diane Ladd needs to develop discipline and patience in order to achieve her aspirations. Ladd will grow by learning to accept frustration and to persevere in spite of obstacles.
Diane Ladd may often be coerced into doing things that she does not want to do, leaving her frustrated, irritable and touchy. Diane could turn hard and unforgiving toward others and may break up some important relationships.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Diane Ladd 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 Diane Ladd needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Diane Ladd has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that she is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Diane Ladd needs to foster mature self-discipline, self-control, and personal responsibility.
When under stress, she 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, she may encourage others to depend on her emotionally (and otherwise) to an unhealthy degree. Diane Ladd needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
It is in trying to strike a balance between Ladd's inner, personal life and her career or involvement with the world at large that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Diane Ladd needs to focus attention on her home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
The following are specific activities that will support Diane Ladd in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Ladd, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Diane Ladd should care for and nourish children, plants, pets or other people. She needs to make a home, create and sustain strong relationships with her family or a community that can support her and give her a sense of safety and belonging.
Diane Ladd should develop her listening skills and deepen her understanding and appreciation of women and their perspective. Diane Ladd has to learn to trust her own feelings, intuitions and emotional needs. She needs to care for herself in an accepting, non-judgmental way.
It is in Diane Ladd's best interest to take all that is good and helpful from her past and use it in a new way. (If she is so inclined, Diane may want to explore the potential of past-life regression to tap into gifts she has already developed).
