challenges and difficulties
Mick Mars has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. He is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that he discourages himself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Mars knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Mick Mars may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Mick must learn that he does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax his unnecessarily high or strict standards.
His fears revolve around money and material security, and Mick Mars works very hard to ensure that his assets are solid. He may be very conservative, even stingy with his money because he is afraid there will not be enough. He may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
Because he is somewhat inhibited when initiating relationships with others, Mick Mars may prefer to be by himself. Mick may feel that he does not fit in very well with others and as a result, may have difficulties with team-work.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Mick Mars instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that he is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for him. The direction Mick Mars 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 Mars' deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, he is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and he can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Mick Mars has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. He should let his feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use his imagination and let his dreams emerge!
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Mick Mars has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Mars 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.
Mick Mars seems to have an innate sense of cosmic awareness and is likely to have strong psychical or metaphysical talents. He is inclined to join some parapsychology groups where he may share his unusual experiences with others.
