challenges and difficulties
Joseph Cotten 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 Cotten.
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Joseph Cotten may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to him. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Joseph may tenaciously cling to his grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
His overall outlook on life is serious, and Joseph Cotten may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his steps!
Joseph dislikes tense or frustrating situations and has a strong desire to free himself from them. Acting quickly at times, Joseph suddenly overcomes his inner inhibitions. Joseph Cotten also has the ability to grasp difficult situations correctly and to use them for his advancement.
Joseph tries to keeps his sensuality under control and is likely to suppress the tension he feels in his love relationships. At times he could feel somewhat emotionally inhibited, while at other times Joseph Cotten may have a strong wish to break all moral barriers.
He is not afraid of hard work and leaves no stone unturned in the pursuit of his objectives. Joseph Cotten has a strong desire to overcome any difficulties or obstacles in his way and will do this at all cost, even if it means having to use force.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Joseph Cotten 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 Joseph Cotten needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
His natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing his situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing his situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Joseph Cotten copes with stress. Joseph Cotten also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
His development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Joseph Cotten to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in trying to strike a balance between Cotten's inner, personal life and his career or involvement with the world at large that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Joseph Cotten needs to focus attention on his home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Joseph Cotten back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Joseph Cotten's rigid self-control overly restricts his ability to freely express himself or explore possibilities. He is excessively concerned with work, duty and security. He tends to be fearful, judgmental towards himself or others, and can feel alone and cut off from sources of nourishment outside himself. Joseph Cotten should try to learn to relax and recognize that not everything is Cotten's responsibility.
Cotten is a good team worker and has the ability to lead others. His relationships and associations with others tend to be harmonious and cooperative. Joseph Cotten may also have a very industrious family and he tends to be strongly tied to them.
