challenges and difficulties
Natalie has difficulty asserting her will and desires directly and openly. She may also suppress her anger and aggressiveness. Developing self-confidence, courage, and faith in herself are important tasks for Wood.
Natalie Wood takes her commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. Her strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Wood a trustworthy and dedicated partner, but she often feels that marriage or any binding commitment between her and another person is too restrictive and burdensome, and thus seeks to avoid it. Close relationships may be more work than pleasure for Natalie Wood and it may seem that she is always "working on" her marriage rather than enjoying it. However, Wood will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
At times Natalie Wood struggles with nebulous worries and insecurities, fears which may be difficult to name. Mostly, she may be afraid of getting acquainted with the inner workings of her mind and soul, feeling uneasy with anything irrational or intangible. Natalie Wood has to work hard to overcome being overly serious regarding the spiritual side of life, especially if her religious upbringing emphasized guilt and retribution. Reorienting herself in the direction of spiritual optimism will do much to lift the cloud of worry that settles over Natalie occasionally.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Natalie Wood 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 Natalie Wood needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
She is capable of withstanding outside influences and remaining constant and steady on her path, but when under stress Natalie Wood becomes downright obstinate and implacable, resisting any change no matter how necessary or desirable the change may be. Tenaciously trying to preserve the status quo and hold on to what she has, she is apt to ignore the subtle signals she receives about needing to do something differently, which often leads to a crisis.
Natalie Wood needs to learn the limits of her ability to control life, and to accept and even embrace change and loss of the familiar, in order to allow for new life and growth. "Letting go" is a major life lesson for her. Wood also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward her appetites and desires, as Natalie Wood tends to overindulge and/or deny herself excessively.
It is in her dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Natalie Wood needs to integrate in tangible ways: how she makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what she does with the resources she has. Natalie Wood should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
