challenges and difficulties
Ike Turner has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Ike is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack joyfulness and the ability to play. Ike Turner often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Turner's which may inhibit him a great deal. Ike Turner must avoid becoming heavy and cynical, or becoming a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose practicality and realism squeeze out the playful, imaginative side of life.
He may have nebulous but ever-present guilt and fears that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Ike Turner does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend himself from its dangers and its unknowns. Ike Turner 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.
His faith, optimism, and sense of possibilities are tempered by much caution, and often doubt or skepticism as well. Whatever hopes or visions Ike Turner has for his life are firmly held in check by his sense of reality. At times he may wish for more freedom, but Ike also fears it and hang back. Ike Turner may blame practical limitations or some external condition or the prevailing Authority for his own inhibitions.
Ike Turner feels that he must work very hard and struggle against tremendous odds that impede his chances of fulfilling his life's ambitions. Ike may adopt a very hard, cynical, or nihilistic attitude that will only drag him down further. There are major problems with his father or figures of authority. Ike Turner may fail simply to spite "them", without realizing that he is primarily hurting himself. If he can overcome his feelings of loneliness, bitterness or isolation, and direct his energies toward constructive endeavors, Turner can be immensely effective because of his tremendous tenacity and potential for achievement.
Ike Turner becomes tense and upset rather easily. He becomes irritated by the unwillingness of others to make changes. In his eagerness to see his inspirations materialize, Turner is inclined to forego tact and diplomacy in favor of achieving his goals. His occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Ike Turner 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 Ike Turner 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 Ike Turner - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Turner 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.
Ike Turner 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 Turner's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Ike Turner 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 his dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Ike Turner needs to integrate in tangible ways: how he makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what he does with the resources he has. Ike Turner should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
Ike Turner has a very engaging manner in the company of others and his relationships with other people are likely to be harmonious. Some of his connections may prove to be helpful to Ike with his plans.
