challenges and difficulties
Moby often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something he cannot name or specify, and he 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 Moby.
His childhood or his relationship with his parents was restrictive, unloving or unhappy in ways that may prevent Moby from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Moby feels that he was deprived in one form or another, regardless of whether he actually was or not. His early life - at least as Moby remembers it - may have been marked by emotional separation or repression of his needs and feelings. Forgiving his parents and/or letting go of any resentments he has about the limitations that he experienced early in his life is crucial. Also, Moby needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Moby accomplish this task.
Moby seesaws between playing it safe, and doing something unique and original, between self-control and letting loose, between being a responsible adult and a rebellious adolescent, between what Moby has to or should do and what his spontaneous impulses tell him to do. All of this creates enormous inner tension as well as friction with people in his environment. Moby may, for instance, bitterly resent government or authority figures who "crush his individuality", yet ignore his obligations and responsibilities, thus ensuring that they will pursue him. Learning to give each side its due is an ongoing challenge for Moby.
Moby feels that he must work very hard and struggle against tremendous odds that impede his chances of fulfilling his life's ambitions. Moby may adopt a very hard, cynical, or nihilistic attitude that will only drag him down further. There are major problems with his father or figures of authority. Moby may fail simply to spite "them", without realizing that he is primarily hurting himself. If he can overcome his feelings of loneliness, bitterness or isolation, and direct his energies toward constructive endeavors, Moby can be immensely effective because of his tremendous tenacity and potential for achievement.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Moby 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 Moby needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Moby needs to take what he has learned (either through formal education or his own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it or express it in a way that can benefit others. Knowledge and understanding, which does not enhance either Moby's quality of life or that of persons in his world, is of little real value. Putting Moby's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in his daily relationships, and in the multiple choices he makes every day, will enable Moby to really test his belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Moby is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Moby needs to cultivate his ability to live in the present!
It is in his marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. He may see the qualities that he needs to develop more fully (described above) in his partner. It is important for Moby to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in his life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them himself. Moby has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about himself through others.
He is reserved and somewhat conservative in presenting his viewpoints to others and prefers a philosophical discussion to small talk. Moby is quite selective in his choice of subjects and only wants to study what is really of interest to him.
Moby often tends to feel sad and may sympathize with people who are "in the same boat". He is likely to cling to old things and wants to pass on his traditions.
