challenges and difficulties
Katie Holmes has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. She is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that she discourages herself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Holmes knows it should be done.
She frequently over analyze or pick things apart mentally. Katie Holmes may be something of a hypochondriac also. Katie must learn that she does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax her unnecessarily high or strict standards.
Katie Holmes has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life which colors everything she does. Caution and realism are her virtues though Katie limits herself at times by being too careful, shy, or fearful, and not believing in herself enough or being assertive when necessary. Others find Katie Holmes difficult to get to know intimately, as Holmes tends to distance herself from them or to put forth a rather stern, "adult" face to the world.
Katie Holmes strives and struggles a great deal with her ideals or spiritual aspirations. She may go through periods of self-denial, asceticism, and in-depth study of religious philosophy and spiritual practices, or she may lose heart and become cynical about religious ideals; however, she can never quite divorce herself from her idealistic concerns.
At times circumstances seem to be pushing against Katie, and she may have to withstand severe challenges. Katie Holmes will probably have to work harder than others in order to succeed, turning her hard and cold hearted in her decisions because of it.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Katie Holmes 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 Katie Holmes needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Her natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing her situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing her situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Katie Holmes copes with stress. Katie Holmes also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
Her development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Katie Holmes to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in her dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Katie Holmes needs to integrate in tangible ways: how she makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what she does with the resources she has. Katie Holmes should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
Katie Holmes tends to have deep bonds with the people she associates with and is likely to encounter some unusual or fated relationships. Some of her contacts could be with very influential people who may be of help to Holmes in the future.
