challenges and difficulties
Joan has an innate distrust of groups and/or a cynical attitude toward society that may leave her feeling out of step and unable to participate in activities with her peers. Overcoming a sense of aloofness and alienation from others is an important task for Collins.
She may have nebulous but ever-present guilt and fears that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Joan Collins does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend herself from its dangers and its unknowns. Joan Collins must learn to overcome her ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
Her faith, optimism, and sense of possibilities are tempered by much caution, and often doubt or skepticism as well. Whatever hopes or visions Joan Collins has for her life are firmly held in check by her sense of reality. At times she may wish for more freedom, but Joan also fears it and hang back. Joan Collins may blame practical limitations or some external condition or the prevailing Authority for her own inhibitions.
She is not afraid of hard work and leaves no stone unturned in the pursuit of her objectives. Joan Collins has a strong desire to overcome any difficulties or obstacles in her way and will do this at all cost, even if it means having to use force.
At times circumstances seem to be pushing against Joan, and she may have to withstand severe challenges. Joan Collins will probably have to work harder than others in order to succeed, turning her hard and cold hearted in her decisions because of it.
Joan tries to build her life on solid ground, but may find it difficult to move forward, because she always tends to look back. This could result in feelings of inferiority and periodic moods of depression.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Joan Collins 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 Joan Collins needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Collins' deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, she is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and she can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Joan Collins has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. She should let her feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use her imagination and let her dreams emerge!
It is deep within herself, as Joan Collins faces her own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of her life that Joan Collins keeps hidden from public view where she is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
The qualities described above can also be beneficially channeled into some sort of charitable work, altruistic service or ministering to people in need.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Joan Collins back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Escapism through fantasy, intoxicants, or passive, vicarious activities (television, movies, etc.), waiting for a miracle instead of taking constructive steps to help herself, aimlessness or an inability to make and keep commitments, and self deception regarding other people. Joan has a tendency to be a martyr.
