challenges and difficulties
Leto doubts his own intelligence and mental capacities, and he may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Jared is often overly serious and disinterested in light or superficial conversation. Spontaneous communication, social give-and-take, and making small talk are likely to be difficult for him.
His fears revolve around money and material security, and Jared Leto works very hard to ensure that his assets are solid. He may be very conservative, even stingy, with his money because he is afraid there will not be enough. He may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
The conflict between spiritual needs and ideals versus material desires or limitations of the "real world" is one of Jared's ongoing challenges. It may be hard for Jared Leto to sort out his true values, especially when he is enmeshed in the demands of mundane life. Times of retreat, isolation, meditation and prayer could be helpful to Leto in this regard. Finding inner strength through spirituality and attunement to a higher source is ultimately the answer for him.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jared Leto 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 Jared Leto needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Jared Leto's path lies in cultivating idealism and humanitarian feelings, being concerned with how Leto's actions impact the world at large, perhaps becoming more aware of the social implications of Leto's life style and personal choices or becoming active politically. Participating in organizations that support Leto's ideals is one way to do this.
When under stress he is likely to become overly focused on himself and his own little world.
Instead of "how will this benefit or hurt me?" Leto's focus needs to shift to "how will this affect us all?".
Ideally, Jared Leto needs to strike a balance between doing for himself and doing for others, by discovering how Leto's unique gifts can benefit others.
It is in any involvements he has with teams, clubs, organizations, networks, and the like that Jared Leto is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above need to be channeled into some sort of group effort or experience, or have some impact on society at large.
The following are specific activities that will support Jared Leto in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Leto, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
He needs to give and receive affection, love and pleasure (primarily with the qualities described previously). Jared Leto has to learn to respond to, appreciate and create beauty, art, harmonious surroundings and relationships. He needs to be aware of aesthetics and to do things in a gracious, pleasing manner. Jared Leto has to start enjoying life, nurturing friendships and cultivating his ability to love and to receive love.
His conversations with others tend to be lively and productive but could also easily turn into arguments. The subject of Leto's discussions is likely to be about working on and incorporating educational matters.
