challenges and difficulties
John Phillips often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something he cannot name or specify, and he may sense both a great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.
Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or over sensitivity is an important task for John Phillips.
His childhood or his relationship with his parents was restrictive, unloving or unhappy in ways that may prevent Papa John from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. John Phillips feels that he was deprived in one form or another, regardless of whether he actually was or not. His early life - at least as John Phillips 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, John Phillips needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Papa John accomplish this task.
John Phillips tends to be somewhat insecure and uncertain about his direction in life. Frequently plagued by doubt and fear, he is inclined to worry a lot. Because John Phillips lacks the confidence to fight back, he may allow himself to become the victim of others.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which John Phillips 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 Phillips needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
John Phillips has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that he is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, John Phillips needs to foster mature self-discipline, self-control, and personal responsibility.
When under stress, he has a strong instinct to retreat back to the nest, to be a child again, or to become overwhelmed with feelings and longings to be taken care of. Also, he may encourage others to depend on him emotionally (and otherwise) to an unhealthy degree. John Phillips needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
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 John Phillips 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. John Phillips should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
