challenges and difficulties
Jim Kerr has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Jim is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack the capacity for joy and play. Jim Kerr 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 Kerr's that may inhibit him a great deal. Jim Kerr must avoid becoming cumbersome and cynical, or a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose sense of practicality and realism rob him of the playful, imaginative side of life.
His childhood or his relationship with his parents was restrictive, unloving or unhappy in ways that may prevent Jim from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Jim Kerr feels that he was deprived in one form or another, regardless of whether he actually was or not. His early life - at least as Kerr remembers it - may have been marked by emotional separation or repression of his needs and feelings. 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, Jim Kerr needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Jim accomplish this task.
His disposition is somewhat melancholic and Jim Kerr may have a rather pessimistic outlook. Jim has an inner need to be alone and to engage in deep meditation. Jim Kerr takes life seriously and may have been taught early on to learn from his mistakes.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jim Kerr 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 Jim Kerr needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Instinctively he is a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary. Very often, however, Jim stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Jim Kerr has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that he must be self-reliant and that only he can come up with the answers he needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate him from others, or make Jim Kerr feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Jim Kerr calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Jim Kerr 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 his dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Jim Kerr needs to integrate in tangible ways: how he makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what he does with the resources he has. Jim Kerr should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
He is very social and his relationships with others are very warm and expansive. It is essential for Jim's emotional welfare to be surrounded by people and he is an active member of groups or associations he belongs to.
Kerr is able to cooperate with people harmoniously, and others see him as a welcome comrade. Jim likes to work hand-in-hand with everyone and has excellent teamwork ability.
