challenges and difficulties
Exene Cervenka has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, she prevents herself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Cervenka is more rigid and dogmatic than she realizes. Her approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Exene Cervenka takes her own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if she is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
Exene Cervenka takes both her work and her health very seriously, but she may demand so much of her at work that she compromise her health. Exene can become a workaholic, not so much because she has lofty ambitions, but because she never feels like she has done enough. Exene Cervenka is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that she may not enjoy it at all.
Cervenka can also get overly involved in self-improvement or her health, and she tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
Exene has an inner conflict between idealism, hope, and faith in the future versus doubt and oppression by limitations and practical realities. Exene Cervenka needs to develop discipline and patience in order to achieve her aspirations. Cervenka will grow by learning to accept frustration and to persevere in spite of obstacles.
Once she decides what she wants to do, Exene Cervenka will pursue her goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for her deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Exene feel a little out of step with others.

It is easy for Exene Cervenka to become distracted from her path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to her.

"What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", she is apt to dabble, scatter her energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for her life and aligning her daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Cervenka's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward her personal development.
