challenges and difficulties
Tougas either overvalues or undervalues her possessions and assets. She can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. Marie-Soleil Tougas may deny herself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of her labors. She may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Marie-Soleil Tougas feels that she does not have "enough" to make her feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) she has!
Her attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Marie-Soleil Tougas may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to her. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Marie-Soleil may tenaciously cling to her grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
Her overall outlook on life is serious, and Marie-Soleil Tougas may feel that life or God will punish her if she does not watch her step!
Marie-Soleil Tougas tends to suppress her feelings and may be somewhat inhibited in love relationships. She may often feel rejected or she may give the impression of rejecting others herself. Perhaps her mother or father found it difficult to express their affection.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Marie-Soleil Tougas 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-Soleil Tougas needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Tougas' deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, she is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and she can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Marie-Soleil Tougas has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. She should let her feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use her imagination and let her dreams emerge!
It is in her marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. She may see the qualities that she needs to develop more fully (described above) in her partner. It is important for Marie-Soleil Tougas to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in her life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them herself. Marie-Soleil Tougas has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about herself through others.
Marie-Soleil Tougas 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 Tougas in the future.
