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 Rivers.
Rivers is generally not a "joiner" and she does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If Joan Rivers does participate in a group, she may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or she may simply feel that she does not fit in with the others.
Being alone or with older, more experienced people suits Joan Rivers better than being with groups of her own peers.
Her faith, optimism, and sense of possibilities are tempered by a great deal of caution, and often doubt or skepticism as well. Whatever hopes or visions Joan Rivers 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 holds back. Joan Rivers may blame practical limitations, some external condition or the prevailing Authority for her own inhibitions.
Joan Rivers tends to have a pessimistic outlook and she seems to be plagued by deep inner conflicts, which could severely undermine her strength. Self-critical and uncertain about her goals, Joan feels that she cannot live up to her ideals and ends up disappointed.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Joan Rivers 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 Rivers 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 Rivers' 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 Rivers 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 Rivers 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 Rivers 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.
