challenges and difficulties
Asher is wary of becoming emotionally dependent on others, and may distance herself or deny her needs for relationships of closeness and intimacy so that she will not be vulnerable to rejection or abandonment. On the other hand, Jane Asher may cling excessively or need constant reassurance from loved ones and family. Developing a deep, inner sense of security, as well as the ability to give and receive nurturing are important tasks for Jane.
Jane may be plagued by fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death. She strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for her.
On another level entirely, Jane Asher is very careful about joining forces, and especially her material resources, with others. Asher wants to keep her own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
She is inclined to be somewhat timid and afraid to start something on her own, preferring that someone else tell her what to do. Jane Asher can easily be deterred from pursuing her goals, which makes her advancement in life rather slow.
Basically shy, Asher tends to be somewhat inhibited in love relationships and may feel uncomfortable or awkward expressing her love for someone. Jane Asher longs for love relationships and dreams about love, but is also inclined to torment herself because of a seeming lack of affection.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jane Asher 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 Jane Asher needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Jane Asher needs to take what she has learned (either through formal education or her own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it or express it in a way that can benefit others. Knowledge and understanding, which does not enhance either Jane's quality of life or that of persons in her world, is of little real value. Putting Asher's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in her daily relationships, and in the multiple choices she makes every day, will enable Jane Asher to really test her belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Jane Asher is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Jane Asher needs to cultivate her ability to live in the present!
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Jane Asher has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Asher will see these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual dependency involved. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
