challenges and difficulties
Melinda Gates often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something she cannot name or specify, and she may have both: great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.
Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or oversensitivity is an important task for Gates.
Her childhood or her relationships with her parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent Melinda from allowing other people to get close to her in later life. Melinda Gates felt deprived in some manner, whether or not she actually was deprived in some way. Emotional separations or repression of her needs and feelings may typify her early life, at least as Gates remembers it. 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, Melinda Gates needs to build her own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into her home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Melinda accomplish this.
Her upbringing may have been either too demanding or somewhat lacks. Melinda Gates resists any attempt to restrict her freedom and has the ability to apply extraordinary efforts to overcome any inhibitions or difficulties that she may have.
Her ambition and desire for power could be somewhat out of proportion and Gates can be quite ruthless in dealing with obstacles and difficulties she may be faced with. Melinda Gates must learn to control her temper and be willing to compromise.
Her disposition is somewhat melancholic and Melinda Gates could have a rather pessimistic outlook. Melinda has an inner need to be alone and to deeply meditate on her thoughts. Melinda Gates takes life seriously and may have been taught early on to learn from her mistakes.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Melinda Gates 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 Melinda Gates needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
When under stress, Melinda Gates is apt to shut off the flow of her emotions and ignore her needs and feelings in order to do what she perceives as her duty or simply what the practical realities of the situation dictate. This can lead to a certain rigidity and inflexibility. If overdone, self-control, self-discipline, or an exaggerated concern over what society, family or others expect of her, makes life more of a burden than an adventure.
Fostering her tender, caring, feminine, and nurturing aspects is an important step in Melinda Gates' growth. Melinda Gates needs to learn how to nourish and lovingly tend to both herself and others. Letting herself be taken care of sometimes is okay!
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Melinda Gates has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Gates will see these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual dependency involved. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
