challenges and difficulties
Jackson either overvalues or undervalues his possessions and assets. He can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. Jesse Jackson may deny himself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of his labors. He may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Jesse Jackson feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
His childhood or his relationships with his parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent Jesse from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Jesse Jackson felt deprived in some manner, whether or not he actually was deprived in some way. Emotional separations or repression of his needs and feelings may typify his early life, at least as Jackson remembers it. Forgiving his parents and/or letting go of any resentments he has about the limitations that he experienced early in his life is crucial. Also, Jesse Jackson needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Jesse accomplish this.
He is serious and sincere about his interests, does not accept superficial answers and is not easily placated. Jesse wants his inspirations to become reality and he does not mind upsetting a few apple carts in the process. Jesse Jackson becomes impatient with others for being hesitant to implement new ideas and take action, and his occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
He is inclined to exercise self-control and tries to suppress his inner excitability or irritability. Jackson can be somewhat self-willed, though, and strive to be independent. If Jesse Jackson feels that someone is holding him down too much, he may suddenly break up the relationship.
He is susceptible to deception by others and may encounter people who dissuade him from his objectives and try to use his vulnerability to their advantage. Jesse Jackson should watch his relationships very carefully so he will not get seriously hurt or disappointed.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jesse Jackson 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 Jesse Jackson needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
His natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing his situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing his situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Jesse Jackson copes with stress. Jesse Jackson also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
His development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Jesse Jackson to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Jesse Jackson has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Jackson 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.
The following are specific activities that will support Jesse Jackson in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Jackson, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Jesse Jackson should become more aware of the spiritual side of life and its underlying unity by getting involved in charitable activities and opening up his psychic channels. Meditation that develops Jackson's intuitive abilities, as well as learning about the unseen side of life through his own dream experiences or altered states of awareness, can be important steps in Jesse's path.
Moreover, musical and artistic or imaginative endeavors will be important to him.
Jackson considers the ability to think and speak convincingly as the most powerful instrument one can possess. He always strives for intellectual control in his environment and tends to dominate his relationships. Jesse Jackson has a strong desire to be the spokesman in his community.
