challenges and difficulties
Marie Osmond has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Marie is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but she may lack the capacity for joy and play. Marie Osmond 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 Osmond's that may inhibit her a great deal. Marie Osmond must avoid becoming cumbersome and cynical, or a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose sense of practicality and realism rob her of the playful, imaginative side of life.
Marie Osmond has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life that colors everything she does. Caution and realism are her virtues though Marie limits herself at times by being too careful, shy or fearful, not believing in herself enough, or lacking the required assertiveness. Others find Marie Osmond difficult to get to know intimately, as Osmond tends to distance herself from them or to outwardly adopt a rather stern, "adult" demeanor.
Her emotional life is likely to be somewhat strained and she has a tendency toward pessimism. Marie Osmond may not feel as close in her relationships to her loved ones as she would like to, and Marie may find it difficult to give and receive love.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Marie Osmond 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 Marie Osmond needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Instinctively she is a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary. Very often, however, Marie stands alone when she does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Marie Osmond has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that she must be self-reliant and that only she can come up with the answers she needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate her from others, or make Marie Osmond feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Marie Osmond calls social "games" do not come naturally to her. Marie Osmond needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
It is in fostering a personal vision or philosophy of life, whether through religious or philosophical studies, education or the wisdom of distant lands or cultures that Marie Osmond is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Marie Osmond needs to cultivate the qualities described above in this endeavor. Long distance communication and involvement with foreigners is likely to be significant to Osmond.
