challenges and difficulties
Zappa either overvalues or undervalues his possessions and assets. He can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. Frank Zappa may deny himself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of his labors. He may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Frank Zappa feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
It may be difficult for Frank Zappa to play spontaneously or just let his hair down, for he tends to inhibit that side of his by being too self-conscious and concerned with the impression he is making.
Frank may work very hard at some sport or creative medium in order to excel, for he wants very, very much to be noticed, acknowledged and recognized as special in some way. Though he may indeed be outstanding, Frank Zappa also needs to learn to relax and enjoy himself more.
His aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Frank Zappa 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 Frank Zappa underestimates what is possible, and holds himself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
Once he decides what he wants to do, Frank Zappa will pursue his goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for his deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Frank feel a little out of step with others. Frank Zappa takes things a little more seriously and has an inclination to be somewhat of a fanatic, although probably not flamboyantly so; as a result, others may not be aware of how deeply Frank feels and how driven he is about the things that are important to him. Frank Zappa has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to him, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
Frank Zappa has a tendency to think on the dark side, is somewhat gloomy and touchy and easily disappointed. He may find it hard to keeps his attention on the real world and may become obsessed with strange ideas and fanciful beliefs.
Frank tries to build his life on solid ground, but may find it difficult to move forward because he always tends to look back. This could result in feelings of inferiority and periodic depression.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Frank Zappa 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 Frank Zappa needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Instinctively he is a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary. Very often, however, Frank stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Frank Zappa has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that he must be self-reliant and that only he can come up with the answers he needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate him from others, or make Frank Zappa feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Frank Zappa calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Frank Zappa needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
It is in his public life and career that Frank Zappa is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The latter will impact Zappa's reputation and standing in his community or professional circle, as well as how Frank Zappa achieves his important life goals and aspirations.
