challenges and difficulties
Mary Astor often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something she cannot name or specify, and she may sense both a great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.
Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or over sensitivity is an important task for Astor.
Her childhood or her relationship with her parents was restrictive, unloving or unhappy in ways that may prevent Mary from allowing other people to get close to her in later life. Mary Astor feels that she was deprived in one form or another, regardless of whether she actually was or not. Her early life - at least as Astor remembers it - may have been marked by emotional separation or repression of her needs and feelings. Forgiving her parents and/or letting go of any resentments she has about the limitations that she experienced early in her life is crucial. Also, Mary Astor needs to build her own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into her home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Mary accomplish this task.
Mary has an inner conflict between idealism, hope and faith in the future versus doubt and oppression due to limitations and practical realities. Mary Astor needs to develop discipline and patience in order to achieve her aspirations. Astor will grow by learning to accept frustration and to persevere in spite of obstacles.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Mary Astor 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 Mary Astor needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Mary Astor's path lies in her development as an individual, the discovery of her own strengths and joys, the capacity to express her uniqueness and to stand out in a crowd. This involves becoming a leader, even though Astor's instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Mary Astor is apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, she may believe that striving to do her personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but Mary should let go of this notion. Finding her own center and doing what gives her delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Mary Astor can offer the world at large.
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 Mary Astor is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Mary Astor needs to cultivate the qualities described above in this endeavor. Long distance communication and involvement with foreigners is likely to be significant to Astor.
