challenges and difficulties
Gloria Estefan has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, she prevents herself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Estefan is more rigid and dogmatic than she realizes. Her approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Gloria Estefan takes her own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if she is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
Gloria Estefan has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life which colors everything she does. Caution and realism are her virtues though Gloria limits herself at times by being too careful, shy, or fearful, and not believing in herself enough or being assertive when necessary. Others find Gloria Estefan difficult to get to know intimately, as Estefan tends to distance herself from them or to put forth a rather stern, "adult" face to the world.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Gloria Estefan instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that she is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for her. The direction Gloria Estefan needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
She is capable of withstanding outside influences and remaining constant and steady on her path, but when under stress Gloria Estefan 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 she has, she is apt to ignore the subtle signals she receives about needing to do something differently, which often leads to a crisis.
Gloria Estefan needs to learn the limits of her 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 her. Estefan also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward her appetites and desires, as Gloria Estefan tends to overindulge and/or deny herself excessively.
It is deep within herself, as Gloria Estefan faces her own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of her life that Gloria Estefan keeps hidden from public view where she is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
The qualities described above can also be beneficially channeled into some sort of charitable work, altruistic service or ministering to people in need.
She may have an inner fear of separation and could feel left out or ignored at times. Gloria Estefan may have not received much affection while she was growing up or it had to be shared with others. Gloria could find it difficult to show her love in her relationships.
Gloria should use extra care in her relationships with people, for she could easily end up in the wrong crowd. Gloria Estefan could be the victim of fraud and falsehood or through association may become an accessory to malicious action.
