challenges and difficulties
Jane Russell has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. She is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that she discourages herself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Russell knows it should be done.
She frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Jane Russell may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Jane must learn that she does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax her unnecessarily high or strict standards.
She is serious by nature, and may have difficulty making small talk or participating in friendly, personal exchanges.
Jane Russell tries to be strictly accurate and is critical of people who exaggerate or discuss subjects they really know little about. Russell withholds her thoughts and opinions until she has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Jane's silence discomforts others.
Her mental concentration is very good but her breadth of understanding may not be.
Her aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Jane Russell pursues her aims in a systematic, disciplined and thorough manner, and she is willing to take her time, advancing slowly and steadily toward her goal.
Sometimes Jane Russell underestimates what is possible, and holds herself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
Jane Russell strongly rebels against any restrictions and may have the desire to break away and overthrow any thoughts of responsibility. On the other hand, limitations in her life could suddenly wane, thereby leaving Russell free to do her own thing.
Jane should take care not to trust others too blindly. Some of her friends or associates may be untruthful and try to deceive her, resulting in great disappointments or even losses for Russell.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jane Russell 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 Russell needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Instinctively she is a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary. Very often, however, Jane stands alone when she does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Jane Russell has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that she must be self-reliant and that only she can come up with the answers she needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate her from others, or make Jane Russell feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Jane Russell calls social "games" do not come naturally to her. Jane Russell needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
It is in trying to strike a balance between Russell's inner, personal life and her career or involvement with the world at large that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Jane Russell needs to focus attention on her home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
