challenges and difficulties
Jan Kerouac takes her personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort, and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing. She may feel that relationships in general require more of her than they are worth, and Jan enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. Jan Kerouac also fears entrapment in close relationships.
Kerouac is generally not a "joiner" and she does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If Jan Kerouac does participate in a group, she may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or she may simply feel that she does not fit in with the others.
Being alone or with older, more experienced people suits Jan Kerouac better than being with groups of her own peers.
Jan Kerouac tends to seesaw between hope, optimism, and faith versus doubt and oppression by limitations and practical realities. She needs to overcome impatience and restlessness in order to achieve her dreams and desires for a better life.
Jan Kerouac becomes tense and upset rather easily. She becomes irritated by the unwillingness of others to make changes. In her eagerness to see her inspirations materialize, Kerouac is inclined to forego tact and diplomacy in favor of achieving her goals. Her occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jan Kerouac 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 Jan Kerouac needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Kerouac's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, she is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and she can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Jan Kerouac has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. She should let her feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use her imagination and let her dreams emerge!
It is in her way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Jan Kerouac is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Kerouac's relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, she needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
The following are specific activities that will support Jan Kerouac in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Kerouac, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Jan Kerouac should develop true self-confidence and the willingness to put herself "out there", be seen and shine. Jan needs to be willing to take on a leading role. She needs to be a hero - a protagonist in her own story - by cultivating the courageous, active, and positive masculine qualities she possesses. Doing creative work that she is proud of - anything that comes from Kerouac's heart and bears the stamp of Kerouac's individuality - is important. Also, being a mentor, a helpful, encouraging force in the life of someone less experienced than she is a way for Jan Kerouac to grow and become more whole herself.
Jan Kerouac tends to be fascinated by new and obscure things and may be strongly attracted to the occult. She may contribute to spontaneous forming of groups and could gain spiritual enlightenment together with other people.
