LL Cool J
challenges and difficulties
LL Cool J has difficulty asserting his will and desires directly and openly. He may also suppress his anger and aggressiveness. Developing self-confidence, courage, and faith in himself are important tasks for James Smith.
Fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death may plague LL Cool J. 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, LL Cool J is very careful about joining forces, and especially his material resources, with others. James Smith wants to keep his own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
His faith, optimism, and sense of possibilities are tempered by much caution, and often doubt or skepticism as well. Whatever hopes or visions LL Cool J has for his life are firmly held in check by his sense of reality. At times he may wish for more freedom, but LL Cool J also fears it and hang back. LL Cool J may blame practical limitations or some external condition or the prevailing Authority for his own inhibitions.
His disposition is somewhat melancholic and LL Cool J could have a rather pessimistic outlook. LL Cool J has an inner need to be alone and to deeply meditate on his thoughts. LL Cool J takes life seriously and may have been taught early on to learn from his mistakes.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which LL Cool J 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 LL Cool J needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Seeking harmonious interpersonal relationships, cooperation, and togetherness, as well as the desire to please or appease other people, are drives that come very naturally to LL Cool J - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, James Smith tends to look outside himself for approval or answers, and he leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge his own path through life is a key factor in his self-development.
LL Cool J is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about his intentions or desires, and he can become enmeshed in a quagmire of "little white lies". Stark honesty - both inward and toward others - is the only way out! This, however, leads to the need to confront some of James Smith's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
LL Cool J needs to cultivate his ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on his own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where LL Cool J has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. James Smith 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.
LL Cool J seems to have an innate sense of cosmic awareness and is likely to have strong psychical or metaphysical talents. He is inclined to join some parapsychology groups where he may share his unusual experiences with others.
