challenges and difficulties
Lemmon both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable with others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting himself be known in a deep way does not come easily to Jack, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Jack Lemmon 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 Lemmon.
It may be difficult for Jack Lemmon to play spontaneously or just let his hair down, for he tends to inhibit that side of his by being too self-conscious and concerned with the impression he is making.
Jack may work very hard at some sport or creative medium in order to excel, for he wants very, very much to be noticed, acknowledged, and recognized as special in some way. Though he may indeed be outstanding, Jack Lemmon also needs to learn to relax and enjoy himself more.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jack Lemmon 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 Jack Lemmon needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Jack Lemmon'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 Lemmon's instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Jack Lemmon 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 Jack should let go of this notion. Finding his own center and doing what gives him delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Jack Lemmon can offer the world at large.
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 Jack Lemmon 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. Jack Lemmon should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
The following are specific activities that will support Jack Lemmon in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Lemmon, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Jack Lemmon should care for and nourish children, plants, pets or other people. He needs to make a home, create and sustain strong relationships with his family or a community that can support him and give him a sense of safety and belonging.
Jack Lemmon should develop his listening skills and deepen his understanding and appreciation of women and their perspective. Jack Lemmon has to learn to trust his own feelings, intuitions and emotional needs. He needs to care for himself in an accepting, non-judgmental way.
It is in Jack Lemmon's best interest to take all that is good and helpful from his past and use it in a new way. (If he is so inclined, Jack may want to explore the potential of past-life regression to tap into gifts he has already developed).
