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 Mercury. Freddie Mercury 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 Freddie.
He may have vague but ever-present feelings of guilt and fear that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Freddie Mercury does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend himself from its dangers and its unknowns. Freddie Mercury must learn to overcome his ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Freddie Mercury 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 Freddie Mercury needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Freddie Mercury 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 Freddie's quality of life or that of persons in his world, is of little real value. Putting Mercury's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in his daily relationships, and in the multiple choices he makes every day, will enable Freddie Mercury to really test his belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Freddie Mercury is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Freddie Mercury needs to cultivate his ability to live in the present!

The following are specific activities that will support Freddie Mercury in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Mercury, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Freddie Mercury should be willing to become more of a free thinker, to experiment and change, to loosen his ties to tradition and the known and to allow for new developments. He needs to practice getting involved in an area involving new techniques, rapid changes and innovation. Freddie can be part of the avant-garde promoting such changes - be it in science, music or social relationships. Freddie Mercury has to be willing to be different and perhaps to be considered eccentric or odd.
