challenges and difficulties
Ramon both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable to others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting them get to know him intimately does not come easily to Ilan, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Ilan Ramon is very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive. Learning to relinquish control in personal relationships, and to be completely open, is an important task for Ramon.
His fears revolve around money and material security, and Ilan Ramon works very hard to ensure that his assets are solid. He may be very conservative, even stingy with his money because he is afraid there will not be enough. He may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
He may feel inhibited in his relationships with others and give the impression of being unapproachable and wanting to keep his distance. Ilan Ramon thinks about his feelings for a long time before he expresses them to anyone and he tends to hide his inner self.
He is inclined to exercise self-control and tries to suppress his inner excitability or irritability. However, Ramon can be somewhat self-willed and determined to be independent. If Ilan Ramon feels that someone is holding him down too much, he may suddenly break up the relationship.
Since he lacks the capacity to adapt, Ilan Ramon tends to be rebellious and fight hard against oppression. This could even lead to violent incidents, so Ilan should try to keep his temper at bay. He may have to work extremely hard and handle a great many responsibilities.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Ilan Ramon 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 Ilan Ramon needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Ilan Ramon has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that he is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Ilan Ramon needs to foster mature self-discipline, self-control, and personal responsibility.
When under stress, he has a strong instinct to retreat back to the nest, to be a child again, or to become overwhelmed with feelings and longings to be taken care of. Also, he may encourage others to depend on him emotionally (and otherwise) to an unhealthy degree. Ilan Ramon needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
It is in trying to strike a balance between Ramon's inner, personal life and his career or involvement with the world at large that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Ilan Ramon needs to focus attention on his home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
