challenges and difficulties
Molly Shannon 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 Shannon.
She is serious by nature, and may have difficulty making small talk or participating in friendly, personal exchanges.
Molly Shannon tries to be strictly accurate and is critical of people who exaggerate or discuss subjects they really know little about. Shannon withholds her thoughts and opinions until she has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Molly's silence discomforts others.
Her mental concentration is very good but her breadth of understanding may not be.
Molly has an inner conflict between idealism, hope and faith in the future versus doubt and oppression due to limitations and practical realities. Molly Shannon needs to develop discipline and patience in order to achieve her aspirations. Shannon will grow by learning to accept frustration and to persevere in spite of obstacles.
Molly Shannon tends to be emotionally shy, sensitive and awkward and may have difficulty expressing her true feelings, even when her affection is real. One of Shannon's parents may have been too strict and unloving, and as a result, Molly may fear close relationships.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Molly Shannon 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 Molly Shannon needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Molly Shannon needs to take what she has learned (either through formal education or her 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 Molly's quality of life or that of persons in her world, is of little real value. Putting Shannon's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in her daily relationships, and in the multiple choices she makes every day, will enable Molly Shannon to really test her belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Molly Shannon is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Molly Shannon needs to cultivate her ability to live in the present!
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Molly Shannon has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Shannon 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.
Shannon is able to cooperate with people harmoniously, and others see her as a welcome comrade. Molly likes to work hand-in-hand with everyone and has excellent teamwork ability.
