challenges and difficulties
Kerry doubts his own intelligence and mental capacities, and he may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. John is often overly serious and disinterested in light or superficial conversation. Spontaneous communication, social give-and-take, and making small talk are likely to be difficult for him.
John Kerry takes his commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. His strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Kerry a trustworthy and dedicated partner, but he often feels that marriage or any binding commitment between him and another person is too restrictive and burdensome, and thus seeks to avoid it. Close relationships may be more work than pleasure for John Kerry and it may seem that he is always "working on" his marriage rather than enjoying it. However, Kerry will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which John Kerry 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 John Kerry needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
John Kerry's path lies in his development as an individual, the discovery of his own strengths and joys, the capacity to express his uniqueness and to stand out in a crowd. This involves becoming a leader, even though Kerry's instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress John Kerry is apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, he may believe that striving to do his personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but John should let go of this notion. Finding his own center and doing what gives him delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution John Kerry can offer the world at large.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where John Kerry has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Kerry 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 John Kerry in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Kerry, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
John Kerry's path to wholeness involves confronting his dark and hidden recesses, bringing them out into the open, and transforming himself in the process. Healing abilities develop as a result of Kerry's willingness to experience and transform deep emotions such as grief, anger, and pain. Furthermore, bringing light to the darkness and pain in the world without becoming overwhelmed by it is a significant challenge for John.
His relationships with others could be rather unstable and unreliable. With a somewhat negative attitude and weak will, John Kerry avoids opposition and escapes his responsibilities. In his relationships he is likely to choose people who are asocial.
John Kerry has a strong desire to acquire a leading position in his community. Although he is very capable of assuming leadership, John also has a tendency to impose his will upon others. But in spite of that, he is likely to be successful.
