challenges and difficulties
Émile Zola has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, he prevents himself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Zola is more rigid and dogmatic than he realizes. His approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Émile Zola takes his own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if he is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
Émile Zola has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life that colors everything he does. Caution and realism are his virtues though Émile limits himself at times by being too careful, shy or fearful, not believing in himself enough, or lacking the required assertiveness. Others find Émile Zola difficult to get to know intimately, as Zola tends to distance himself from them or to outwardly adopt a rather stern, "adult" demeanor.
Émile Zola becomes tense and upset rather easily. He becomes irritated by the unwillingness of others to make changes. In his eagerness to see his inspirations materialize, Zola is inclined to forego tact and diplomacy in favor of achieving his goals. His occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
Émile Zola strongly rebels against any restrictions and may have the desire to break away and overthrow any thoughts of responsibility. On the other hand, limitations in his life could suddenly wane, thereby leaving Zola free to do his own thing.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Émile Zola 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 Émile Zola needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Zola's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, he is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and he can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Émile Zola has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. He should let his feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use his imagination and let his dreams emerge!
It is in his way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Émile Zola is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Zola's relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, he needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
