challenges and difficulties
Nelson Eddy has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Nelson is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack joyfulness and the ability to play. Nelson Eddy often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Eddy's which may inhibit him a great deal. Nelson Eddy must avoid becoming heavy and cynical, or becoming a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose practicality and realism squeeze out the playful, imaginative side of life.
Eddy is generally not a "joiner" and he does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If Nelson Eddy does participate in a group, he may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or he may simply feel that he does not fit in with the others.
Being alone or with older, more experienced people suits Nelson Eddy better than being with groups of his own peers.
His aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Nelson Eddy pursues his aims in a systematic, disciplined, and thorough manner, and he is willing to takes his time, advancing slowly and steadily on his way towards his goal.
Sometimes Nelson Eddy underestimates what is possible, and holds himself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
Nelson Eddy has a tendency to think on the dark side, is somewhat gloomy and touchy and easily disappointed. He may find it hard to keeps his attention on the real world and could become obsessed with strange ideas and fanciful beliefs.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Nelson Eddy 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 Nelson Eddy needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
He is capable of withstanding outside influences and remaining constant and steady on his path, but when under stress Nelson Eddy 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 he has, he is apt to ignore the subtle signals he receives about needing to do something differently, which often leads to a crisis.
Nelson Eddy needs to learn the limits of his 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 him. Eddy also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward his appetites and desires, as Nelson Eddy tends to overindulge and/or deny himself excessively.
It is in fostering a personal vision or philosophy of life, whether through religious or philosophical studies, education or the wisdom of distant lands or cultures that Nelson Eddy is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Nelson Eddy needs to cultivate the qualities described above in this endeavor. Long distance communication and involvement with foreigners is likely to be significant to Eddy.
