challenges and difficulties
Kelly doubts his own intelligence and mental capacities, and he may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Gene is often overly serious and disinterested in light or superficial conversation. Spontaneous communication, social give-and-take, and making small talk are likely to be difficult for him.
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Gene Kelly 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, Gene 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 Gene Kelly may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his steps!
Gene Kelly tends to seesaw between hope, optimism, and faith versus doubt and oppression by limitations and practical realities. He needs to overcome impatience and restlessness in order to achieve his dreams and desires for a better life.
Gene should take care not to trust others too blindly. Some of his friends or associates may be untruthful and try to deceive him, resulting in great disappointments or even losses for Kelly.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Gene Kelly 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 Gene Kelly needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Seeking harmonious interpersonal relationships, cooperation, and togetherness, as well as the desire to please or appease other people, are drives that come very naturally to Gene Kelly - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Kelly tends to look outside himself for approval or answers, and he leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge his own path through life is a key factor in his self-development.
Gene Kelly is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about his intentions or desires, and he can become enmeshed in a quagmire of "little white lies". Stark honesty - both inward and toward others - is the only way out! This, however, leads to the need to confront some of Kelly's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Gene Kelly needs to cultivate his ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on his own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Gene Kelly has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Kelly will see these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual dependency involved. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
