challenges and difficulties
Cronyn 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. Hume Cronyn 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 Hume Cronyn feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
Hume may be plagued by fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death. He strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for him.
On another level entirely, Hume Cronyn is very careful about joining forces, and especially his material resources, with others. Cronyn wants to keep his own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
Hume tries to keep his sensuality under control and is likely to suppress the tension he feels in his love relationships. At times he could feel somewhat emotionally inhibited, while at others, Hume Cronyn may have a strong wish to break all moral barriers.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Hume Cronyn 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 Hume Cronyn needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Hume Cronyn benefits by becoming more aware of the rhythm of the seasons and the natural world, learning to slow down and allow life to unfold in its own time. Nurturing a garden, a child, or some other living, growing thing gives Hume Cronyn a sense of inner balance.
Hume Cronyn has a tendency to be deeply suspicious, to not take anything at face value and to see hidden agendas and dark motives even where none exist! Life does not have to be a constant conflict... Hume needs to learn to accept things as they are.
Cronyn also needs to develop patience, peace and stability by grounding himself in his daily work and behaving consistently and reliably towards others.
It is in his marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. He may see the qualities that he needs to develop more fully (described above) in his partner. It is important for Hume Cronyn to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in his life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them himself. Hume Cronyn has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about himself through others.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Hume Cronyn back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Hume Cronyn tends to over-rely on luck or grace, living for tomorrow and gambling. Hume is overconfident and tends to overextend himself and take on more than is humanly possible. Hume is often dogmatic about his philosophy of life or religious beliefs.
The following are specific activities that will support Hume Cronyn in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Cronyn, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Hume Cronyn should become a warrior and cultivate a positive, victorious, active approach to life and to any problems he faces. It is in Cronyn's best interest to act on his own behalf instead of stalling, waiting or hoping someone else will do it for him. Hume Cronyn needs to assert himself openly and courageously and not to be afraid to make mistakes or stumble; there are bound to be a few trial runs to any new initiative. Hume needs to foster a healthy fighting spirit, pick himself up, and go! He also should learn to appreciate conflict and confrontation as a means to grow.
