challenges and difficulties
Pantaeva doubts her own intelligence and mental capacities, and she may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Irina is often overly serious and disinterested in light or superficial conversation. Spontaneous communication, social give-and-take, and making small talk are likely to be difficult for her.
Irina Pantaeva takes her commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. Her strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Pantaeva a trustworthy and dedicated partner, but she often feels that marriage or any binding commitment between her and another person is too restrictive and burdensome, and thus seeks to avoid it. Close relationships may be more work than pleasure for Irina Pantaeva and it may seem that she is always "working on" her marriage rather than enjoying it. However, Pantaeva will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
Irina Pantaeva tends to experience inner conflicts between her responsibilities and her desires. Pantaeva may give preference to duties over desires, which makes it very difficult for her to be truly happy.
Irina is inclined to be quite reserved and cautious in her relationships with others, yet she may also have an exaggerated regard for other peoples' views, thereby giving them more credence than they are worth.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Irina Pantaeva 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 Irina Pantaeva needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Irina Pantaeva has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that she is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Irina Pantaeva needs to foster mature self-discipline, self-control, and personal responsibility.
When under stress, she 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, she may encourage others to depend on her emotionally (and otherwise) to an unhealthy degree. Irina Pantaeva needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
It is in her dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Irina Pantaeva needs to integrate in tangible ways: how she makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what she does with the resources she has. Irina Pantaeva should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
