challenges and difficulties
Jane Rule has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Jane is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but she may lack the capacity for joy and play. Jane Rule 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 Rule's that may inhibit her a great deal. Jane Rule must avoid becoming cumbersome and cynical, or a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose sense of practicality and realism rob her of the playful, imaginative side of life.
Her childhood or her relationship with her parents was restrictive, unloving or unhappy in ways that may prevent Jane from allowing other people to get close to her in later life. Jane Rule feels that she was deprived in one form or another, regardless of whether she actually was or not. Her early life - at least as Rule remembers it - may have been marked by emotional separation or repression of her needs and feelings. Forgiving her parents and/or letting go of any resentments she has about the limitations that she experienced early in her life is crucial. Also, Jane Rule needs to build her own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into her home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Jane accomplish this task.
Jane Rule feels that she must work very hard and struggle against tremendous odds that impede her chances of fulfilling her life's ambitions. Jane may adopt a very hard, cynical, or nihilistic attitude that will only drag her down further. There are major problems with her father or figures of authority. Jane Rule may fail simply to spite "them", without realizing that she is primarily hurting herself. If she can overcome her feelings of loneliness, bitterness or isolation, and direct her energies toward constructive endeavors, Rule can be immensely effective because of her tremendous tenacity and potential for achievement.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jane Rule 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 Rule needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Seeking harmonious interpersonal relationships, cooperation, and togetherness, as well as the desire to please or appease other people, are drives that come very naturally to Jane Rule - so much so that she seeks them out at her own expense. When she is under stress, Rule tends to look outside herself for approval or answers, and she leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge her own path through life is a key factor in her self-development.
Jane Rule is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about her intentions or desires, and she can become enmeshed in a quagmire of "little white lies". Stark honesty - both inward and toward others - is the only way out! This, however, leads to the need to confront some of Rule's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Jane Rule needs to cultivate her ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on her own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in her marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. She may see the qualities that she needs to develop more fully (described above) in her partner. It is important for Jane Rule to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in her life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them herself. Jane Rule has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about herself through others.
The following are specific activities that will support Jane Rule in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Rule, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Jane Rule has to learn to communicate and express herself through the written or spoken word. It is best for Jane to study, learn skills and develop her intellectual interests and capacities. Rule needs to become involved in sharing and exchanging information with others and in developing her intellectual reasoning ability. Jane Rule should practice using her mind, her thinking skills and her ability to be objective. "Work smarter, not harder" might be a motto for her.
Writing, teaching, recording, transcribing, dialoguing, negotiating, mediating, communicating, or facilitating clear communication are significant activities for Jane Rule to pursue.
Jane Rule should be willing to become more of a free thinker, to experiment and change, to loosen her ties to tradition and the known and to allow for new developments. She needs to practice getting involved in an area involving new techniques, rapid changes and innovation. Jane can be part of the avant-garde promoting such changes - be it in science, music or social relationships. Jane Rule has to be willing to be different and perhaps to be considered eccentric or odd.
She is well mannered and has a kind, helpful and obliging nature. Jane Rule is very social, loves to entertain and enjoys talking with people. Jane feels mentally in tune with others and makes a good companion.
