Trusting others and letting them get to know her intimately does not come easily to Lorraine, and sexual inhibitions may result from this.

Lorraine Bracco understands the need for hard work and careful planning in order to accomplish anything substantial and she is capable of much self-discipline and patience once she sets her sights on a goal.
But Lorraine Bracco is very judgmental and hard on herself if she fails to attain success, and she can become dry, bitter, or cynical if the world does not recognize her efforts.

The direction Lorraine Bracco needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Lorraine Bracco has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that she is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Lorraine Bracco needs to foster mature self-discipline, self-control, and personal responsibility.

Lorraine Bracco needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
It is in her relationships with others that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
