challenges and difficulties
Loris Stecca has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Loris is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack the capacity for joy and play. Loris Stecca often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Stecca's that may inhibit him a great deal. Loris Stecca must avoid becoming cumbersome and cynical, or a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose sense of practicality and realism rob him of the playful, imaginative side of life.
Loris may be plagued by fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death. 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, Loris Stecca is very careful about joining forces, and especially his material resources, with others. Stecca wants to keep his own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
The side of Loris Stecca that wants and needs structure, order, stability, and a disciplined way of life is at odds with his urges for unfettered freedom, change, excitement, and discovery. There is apt to be much discontent, inner stress, and tension as a result, and at times Loris finds it hard to relax. Loris Stecca may act out in a rebellious way now and then, or clamp down hard on himself, in an attempt to strictly control his "wild" impulses. Stecca's task is to try to find a reasonable balance between order and creative chaos in his life.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Loris Stecca 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 Loris Stecca 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 Loris Stecca copes with stress. Loris Stecca 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 Loris Stecca 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 Stecca's inner, personal life and his career or involvement with the world at large that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Loris Stecca needs to focus attention on his home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
