challenges and difficulties
Josephine Baker often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something she cannot name or specify, and she 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 Baker.
Josephine Baker takes her commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. Her strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Baker a trustworthy and dedicated partner, but she often feels that marriage or any binding commitment between her and another person is too restrictive and burdensome, and thus seeks to avoid it. Close relationships may be more work than pleasure for Josephine Baker and it may seem that she is always "working on" her marriage rather than enjoying it. However, Baker will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
Josephine has an inner conflict between idealism, hope, and faith in the future versus doubt and oppression by limitations and practical realities. Josephine Baker needs to develop discipline and patience in order to achieve her aspirations. Baker will grow by learning to accept frustration and to persevere in spite of obstacles.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Josephine Baker instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that she is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for her. The direction Josephine Baker needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Josephine Baker's path lies in her development as an individual, the discovery of her own strengths and joys, the capacity to express her uniqueness and to stand out in a crowd. This involves becoming a leader, even though Baker's instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Josephine Baker is apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, she may believe that striving to do her personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but Josephine should let go of this notion. Finding her own center and doing what gives her delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Josephine Baker can offer the world at large.
It is deep within herself, as Josephine Baker faces her own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of her life that Josephine Baker keeps hidden from public view where she 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.
Josephine Baker has a sympathetic understanding of other people and the ability to easily adapt herself to them. Her emotional fulfillment is likely to come through her relationships with others and Baker will probably feel a soul-affinity with many of them.
