challenges and difficulties
John Wayne often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something he cannot name or specify, and he may have both: great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.
Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or oversensitivity is an important task for Wayne.
Fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death may plague John. He strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for him.
On another level entirely, John Wayne is very careful about joining forces, and especially his material resources, with others. Wayne wants to keep his own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
Once he decides what he wants to do, John Wayne will pursue his goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for his deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make John feel a little out of step with others. John Wayne takes things a little more seriously and has an inclination to be somewhat of a fanatic, although probably not flamboyantly so; as a result, others may not be aware of how deeply John feels and how driven he is about the things that are important to him. John Wayne has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to him, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
His vitality tends to be a bit low and John may have to fight against the tendency to be inactive. Easily discouraged, John Wayne is inclined toward pessimism. Perhaps his upbringing was too authoritative, causing problems in his relationships with his parents.
John dislikes tense or frustrating situations and has a strong desire to free himself from them. Acting quickly at times, John suddenly overcomes his inner inhibitions. John Wayne also has the ability to grasp difficult situations correctly and to use them for his advancement.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which John Wayne 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 Wayne needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
When under stress, John Wayne is apt to shut off the flow of his emotions and ignore his needs and feelings in order to do what he perceives as his duty or simply what the practical realities of the situation dictate. This can lead to a certain rigidity and inflexibility. If overdone, self-control, self-discipline, or an exaggerated concern over what society, family or others expect of him, makes life more of a burden than an adventure.
Fostering his tender, caring, feminine, and nurturing aspects is an important step in John Wayne's growth. John Wayne needs to learn how to nourish and lovingly tend to both himself and others. Letting himself be taken care of sometimes is okay!
It is deep within himself, as John Wayne faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that John Wayne keeps hidden from public view where he 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.
John Wayne has a tendency to shy away from other people, and he reacts toward others in an almost fearful way. Wayne seems to lack confidence in himself and for this reason may feel that he lacks the ability to adapt easily into relationships with others.
