challenges and difficulties
Elias Koteas has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Elias is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack the capacity for joy and play. Elias Koteas often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Koteas' that may inhibit him a great deal. Elias Koteas must avoid becoming cumbersome and cynical, or a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose sense of practicality and realism rob him of the playful, imaginative side of life.
Elias Koteas takes his commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. His strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Koteas a trustworthy and dedicated partner, but he often feels that marriage or any binding commitment between him and another person is too restrictive and burdensome, and thus seeks to avoid it. Close relationships may be more work than pleasure for Elias Koteas and it may seem that he is always "working on" his marriage rather than enjoying it. However, Koteas will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
His aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Elias Koteas pursues his aims in a systematic, disciplined and thorough manner, and he is willing to take his time, advancing slowly and steadily toward his goal.
Sometimes Elias Koteas underestimates what is possible, and holds himself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Elias Koteas 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 Elias Koteas needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
His natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing his situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing his situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Elias Koteas copes with stress. Elias Koteas also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
His development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Elias Koteas to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in his way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Elias Koteas is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Koteas' relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, he needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
The following are specific activities that will support Elias Koteas in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Koteas, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Elias Koteas' path to wholeness involves confronting his dark and hidden recesses, bringing them out into the open, and transforming himself in the process. Healing abilities develop as a result of Koteas' willingness to experience and transform deep emotions such as grief, anger, and pain. Furthermore, bringing light to the darkness and pain in the world without becoming overwhelmed by it is a significant challenge for Elias.
Elias Koteas has a strong desire to share his opinions with others and is inclined to seek out people who have the same ideas that he has. He may enjoy studying and developing his intellectual interests with them.
