challenges and difficulties
Stewart 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. Martha Stewart 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 Martha Stewart feels that she does not have "enough" to make her feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) she has!
Martha Stewart takes her commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. Her strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Stewart a trustworthy and dedicated partner, but she often feels that marriage or any binding commitment between her and another person is too restrictive and burdensome, and thus seeks to avoid it. Close relationships may be more work than pleasure for Martha Stewart and it may seem that she is always "working on" her marriage rather than enjoying it. However, Stewart will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
She is serious and sincere about her interests, does not accept superficial answers and is not easily placated. Martha wants her inspirations to become reality and she does not mind upsetting a few apple carts in the process. Martha Stewart becomes impatient with others for being hesitant to implement new ideas and take action, and her occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Martha Stewart 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 Martha Stewart needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Her natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing her situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing her situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Martha Stewart copes with stress. Martha Stewart also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
Her development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Martha Stewart to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in any involvements she has with teams, clubs, organizations, networks, and the like that Martha Stewart is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above need to be channeled into some sort of group effort or experience, or have some impact on society at large.
The following are specific activities that will support Martha Stewart in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Stewart, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Martha Stewart should become more aware of the spiritual side of life and its underlying unity by getting involved in charitable activities and opening up her psychic channels. Meditation that develops Stewart's intuitive abilities, as well as learning about the unseen side of life through her own dream experiences or altered states of awareness, can be important steps in Martha's path.
Moreover, musical and artistic or imaginative endeavors will be important to her.
Martha Stewart 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 Stewart in the future.
