challenges and difficulties
Sedgwick doubts her own intelligence and mental capacities, and she may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Edie 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.
She may have vague but ever-present feelings of guilt and fear that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Edie Sedgwick does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend herself from its dangers and its unknowns. Edie Sedgwick 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.
She is inclined to be somewhat timid and afraid to start something on her own, preferring that someone else tell her what to do. Edie Sedgwick can easily be deterred from pursuing her goals, which makes her advancement in life rather slow.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Edie Sedgwick 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 Edie Sedgwick needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Edie Sedgwick's path lies in her development as an individual, the discovery of her own strengths and joys, the capacity to express her uniqueness and to stand out in a crowd. This involves becoming a leader, even though Sedgwick's instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Edie Sedgwick is apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, she may believe that striving to do her personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but Edie should let go of this notion. Finding her own center and doing what gives her delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Edie Sedgwick can offer the world at large.
It is in her way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Edie Sedgwick is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Sedgwick's relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, she needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
Edie Sedgwick has a tendency to shy away from other people, and she reacts toward others in an almost fearful way. Sedgwick seems to lack confidence in herself and for this reason may feel that she lacks the ability to adapt easily to relationships with others.
Edie Sedgwick tends to be a bit too idealistic and may place too much hope in her relationships, resulting in frequent disappointments. Edie could be attracted to naive people, but some of her contacts may also turn out to be swindlers.
