challenges and difficulties
Liimatainen both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable to others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting them get to know him intimately does not come easily to Jonne Aaron, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Jonne Aaron is very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive. Learning to relinquish control in personal relationships, and to be completely open, is an important task for Liimatainen.
Jonne Aaron has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life that colors everything he does. Caution and realism are his virtues though Jonne Aaron limits himself at times by being too careful, shy or fearful, not believing in himself enough, or lacking the required assertiveness. Others find Jonne Aaron difficult to get to know intimately, as Liimatainen tends to distance himself from them or to outwardly adopt a rather stern, "adult" demeanor.
He is suspicious of groups, crowds, and social organizations. Liimatainen is quick to pick up on social charades and insincerity and avoids the limelight and glamour. Jonne Aaron is direct and to the point in speech and manner, stubborn and inflexible, and often unwilling to communicate his innermost feelings and thoughts.
His physical vitality and mental energy tend to be somewhat low. For this reason Jonne Aaron should try to avoid any unnecessary emotional and physical stress and maintain good health habits in order to enhance his resistance to illness.
He is likely to find it hard to make decisions, looking forward to the future with great enthusiasm on the one hand, but afraid of misjudgments on the other. Never quite sure about anything, Jonne Aaron may periodically withdraw from situations and people.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jonne Aaron 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 Jonne Aaron needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Jonne Aaron needs to take what he has learned (either through formal education or his own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it or express it in a way that can benefit others. Knowledge and understanding, which does not enhance either Jonne Aaron's quality of life or that of persons in his world, is of little real value. Putting Liimatainen's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in his daily relationships, and in the multiple choices he makes every day, will enable Jonne Aaron to really test his belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Jonne Aaron is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Jonne Aaron needs to cultivate his ability to live in the present!
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Jonne Aaron has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Liimatainen 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 specific habits which are likely to hold Jonne Aaron back, or which he 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 himself, aimlessness or an inability to make and keep commitments, and self deception regarding other people. Jonne Aaron has a tendency to be a martyr.
