challenges and difficulties
He is very self-conscious and has a great need for ego-affirmation and praise. Expressing himself freely and openly is not easy for John. Elton John tends to work hard at playing and "having fun", rather than being light-hearted and spontaneous. Developing self-love and self-acceptance regardless of his "performance" is an important task for Elton.
Fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death may plague Elton. He strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for him.
On another level entirely, Elton John is very careful about joining forces, and especially his material resources, with others. John wants to keep his own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
Very cautious and reserved, Elton John could find it difficult to express himself. He is a bit inhibited around others and does not seem to get much cooperation from them, causing Elton to be disappointed.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Elton John 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 Elton John needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Elton John needs to take what he has learned (either through formal education or his own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it or express it in a way that can benefit others. Knowledge and understanding, which does not enhance either Elton's quality of life or that of persons in his world, is of little real value. Putting John's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in his daily relationships, and in the multiple choices he makes every day, will enable Elton John to really test his belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Elton John is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Elton John needs to cultivate his ability to live in the present!
It is in his work and his relationships with co-workers, employers, and employees that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Integrating the qualities described above into John's work and daily routine will lead to greater satisfaction, improved health, and personal growth.
Elton John seems to be a loner, rather serious and quiet. Perhaps he is burdened by family conditions that weigh him down. Elton prefers to associate with older or more authoritative people and is happier in a subordinate position.
