challenges and difficulties
Enrico Fermi has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Enrico is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack joyfulness and the ability to play. Enrico Fermi 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 Fermi's which may inhibit him a great deal. Enrico Fermi must avoid becoming heavy and cynical, or becoming a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose practicality and realism squeeze out the playful, imaginative side of life.
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Enrico Fermi may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to him. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Enrico may tenaciously cling to his grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
His overall outlook on life is serious, and Enrico Fermi may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his steps!
His aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Enrico Fermi pursues his aims in a systematic, disciplined, and thorough manner, and he is willing to takes his time, advancing slowly and steadily on his way towards his goal.
Sometimes Enrico Fermi 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 Enrico Fermi 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 Enrico Fermi needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
He is capable of withstanding outside influences and remaining constant and steady on his path, but when under stress Enrico Fermi becomes downright obstinate and implacable, resisting any change no matter how necessary or desirable the change may be. Tenaciously trying to preserve the status quo and hold on to what he has, he is apt to ignore the subtle signals he receives about needing to do something differently, which often leads to a crisis.
Enrico Fermi needs to learn the limits of his ability to control life, and to accept and even embrace change and loss of the familiar, in order to allow for new life and growth. "Letting go" is a major life lesson for him. Fermi also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward his appetites and desires, as Enrico Fermi tends to overindulge and/or deny himself excessively.
It is in his marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. He may see the qualities that he needs to develop more fully (described above) in his partner. It is important for Enrico Fermi to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in his life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them himself. Enrico Fermi has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about himself through others.
The following are specific activities that will support Enrico Fermi in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Fermi, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
He needs to give and receive affection, love and pleasure (primarily with the qualities described previously). Enrico Fermi has to learn to respond to, appreciate and create beauty, art, harmonious surroundings and relationships. He needs to be aware of aesthetics and to do things in a gracious, pleasing manner. Enrico Fermi has to start enjoying life, nurturing friendships and cultivating his ability to love and to receive love.
Enrico Fermi should become a warrior and cultivate a positive, victorious, active approach to life and to any problems he faces. It is in Fermi's best interest to act on his own behalf instead of stalling, waiting or hoping someone else will do it for him. Enrico Fermi needs to assert himself openly and courageously and not to be afraid to make mistakes or stumble; there are bound to be a few trial runs to any new initiative. Enrico needs to foster a healthy fighting spirit, pick himself up, and go! He also should learn to appreciate conflict and confrontation as a means to grow.
