challenges and difficulties
Ian has an innate distrust of groups and/or a cynical attitude toward society that may leave him feeling out of step and unable to participate in activities with his peers. Overcoming a sense of aloofness and alienation from others is an important task for Astbury.
Ian Astbury takes both his work and his health very seriously, but he may demand so much of himself at work that he compromises his health. Ian can become a workaholic, not so much because he has lofty ambitions, but because he never feels like he has done enough. Ian Astbury is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that he may not enjoy it at all.
Astbury can also get overly involved in self-improvement or his health, and he tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
Ian Astbury strives and struggles a great deal with his ideals or spiritual aspirations. He may go through periods of self-denial, asceticism, and in-depth study of religious philosophy and spiritual practices, or he may lose heart and become cynical about religious ideals; however, he can never quite divorce himself from his idealistic concerns.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Ian Astbury 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 Ian Astbury needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Ian Astbury's path lies in his development as an individual, the discovery of his own strengths and joys, the capacity to express his uniqueness and to stand out in a crowd. This involves becoming a leader, even though Astbury's instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Ian Astbury is apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, he may believe that striving to do his personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but Ian should let go of this notion. Finding his own center and doing what gives him delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Ian Astbury can offer the world at large.
It is deep within himself, as Ian Astbury faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Ian Astbury keeps hidden from public view where he 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.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Ian Astbury back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Ian Astbury's rigid self-control overly restricts his ability to freely express himself or explore possibilities. He is excessively concerned with work, duty and security. He tends to be fearful, judgmental towards himself or others, and can feel alone and cut off from sources of nourishment outside himself. Ian Astbury should try to learn to relax and recognize that not everything is Astbury's responsibility.
