challenges and difficulties
Marlene Dietrich has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Marlene is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but she may lack joyfulness and the ability to play. Marlene Dietrich 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 Dietrich's which may inhibit her a great deal. Marlene Dietrich must avoid becoming heavy and cynical, or becoming a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose practicality and realism squeeze out the playful, imaginative side of life.
It may be difficult for Marlene Dietrich to play spontaneously or just let her hair down, for she tends to inhibit that side of her by being too self-conscious and concerned with the impression she is making.
Marlene may work very hard at some sport or creative medium in order to excel, for she wants very, very much to be noticed, acknowledged, and recognized as special in some way. Though she may indeed be outstanding, Marlene Dietrich also needs to learn to relax and enjoy herself more.
Her aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Marlene Dietrich pursues her aims in a systematic, disciplined, and thorough manner, and she is willing to takes her time, advancing slowly and steadily on her way towards her goal.
Sometimes Marlene Dietrich underestimates what is possible, and holds herself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
Marlene Dietrich tends to be her own worst enemy, demanding inhuman perfection of herself and harshly criticizing or persecuting herself when she does not measure up. Perhaps circumstances or relationships in her life have been extremely difficult and demanding, reinforcing Marlene's belief that she must struggle alone.
She is capable of tremendous effort and of overcoming great odds and handicaps. Through these efforts Marlene Dietrich develops her power and inner strength. However, Marlene Dietrich should not make life harder than it is. She must give herself permission to let up sometimes, and to realize that she is only human.
Marlene Dietrich tends to be very sensitive to her surroundings and is strongly influenced by the prevailing conditions around her. Marlene may feels that she has more obligations than she can properly handle, and that it is hopeless to even try.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Marlene Dietrich 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 Marlene Dietrich needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
She is capable of withstanding outside influences and remaining constant and steady on her path, but when under stress Marlene Dietrich becomes downright obstinate and implacable, resisting any change no matter how necessary or desirable the change may be. Tenaciously trying to preserve the status quo and hold on to what she has, she is apt to ignore the subtle signals she receives about needing to do something differently, which often leads to a crisis.
Marlene Dietrich needs to learn the limits of her ability to control life, and to accept and even embrace change and loss of the familiar, in order to allow for new life and growth. "Letting go" is a major life lesson for her. Dietrich also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward her appetites and desires, as Marlene Dietrich tends to overindulge and/or deny herself excessively.
It is in her way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Marlene Dietrich is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Dietrich's relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, she needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
Marlene likes beautiful surroundings and knows how to create harmony in her environment. Marlene Dietrich loves to be around people and has a strong desire to be influential in social circles.
Because of rigid and somewhat unpleasant family relationships, Marlene Dietrich is inclined to seclude herself from others. She may prefer to live in archaic surroundings and could be interested in antiques.
