challenges and difficulties
Jean has difficulty asserting her will and desires directly and openly. She may also suppress her anger and aggressiveness. Developing self-confidence, courage, and faith in herself are important tasks for Houston.
Fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death may plague Jean. 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, Jean Houston is very careful about joining forces, and especially her material resources, with others. Houston wants to keep her own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
Once she decides what she wants to do, Jean Houston will pursue her goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for her deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Jean feel a little out of step with others. Jean Houston takes things a little more seriously and has an inclination to be somewhat of a fanatic, although probably not flamboyantly so; as a result, others may not be aware of how deeply Jean feels and how driven she is about the things that are important to her. Jean Houston has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to her, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
She is inclined to be somewhat timid and afraid to start something on her own, preferring that someone else tells her what to do. Jean Houston can easily be deterred from pursuing her goals, making her advancement in life rather slow.
Jean Houston has a desire to break away from tradition and to free herself from restricting conditions. Somewhat inflexible and rigid, she may suddenly become inhibited before she initiates her objectives, which could work out to Houston's disadvantage.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jean Houston 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 Jean Houston needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
She is capable of withstanding outside influences and remaining constant and steady on her path, but when under stress Jean Houston becomes downright obstinate and implacable, resisting any change no matter how necessary or desirable the change may be. Tenaciously trying to preserve the status quo and hold on to what she has, she is apt to ignore the subtle signals she receives about needing to do something differently, which often leads to a crisis.
Jean Houston needs to learn the limits of her ability to control life, and to accept and even embrace change and loss of the familiar, in order to allow for new life and growth. "Letting go" is a major life lesson for her. Houston also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward her appetites and desires, as Jean Houston tends to overindulge and/or deny herself excessively.
It is in her way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Jean Houston is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Houston's relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, she needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
Jean Houston seems to be a loner, rather serious and quiet. Perhaps she is burdened by family conditions that weigh her down. Jean prefers to associate with older or more authoritative people and is happier in a subordinate position.
