challenges and difficulties
James Spader has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. James is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack the capacity for joy and play. James Spader 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 Spader's that may inhibit him a great deal. James Spader must avoid becoming cumbersome and cynical, or a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose sense of practicality and realism rob him of the playful, imaginative side of life.
His childhood or his relationship with his parents was restrictive, unloving or unhappy in ways that may prevent James from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. James Spader feels that he was deprived in one form or another, regardless of whether he actually was or not. His early life - at least as Spader remembers it - may have been marked by emotional separation or repression of his needs and feelings. Forgiving his parents and/or letting go of any resentments he has about the limitations that he experienced early in his life is crucial. Also, James Spader needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help James accomplish this task.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which James Spader 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 James Spader needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
His natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing his situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing his situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways James Spader copes with stress. James Spader also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
His development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable James Spader to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in his relationships with others that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within James Spader between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. James Spader seesaws between being inordinately concerned with his self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about him. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Spader's task.
He is very social and his relationships with others are very warm and expansive. It is essential for James' emotional welfare to be surrounded by people and he is an active member of groups or associations he belongs to.
James Spader 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 James with his plans.
