challenges and difficulties
Cassini doubts his own intelligence and mental capacities, and he may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Oleg is often overly serious and disinterested in light or superficial conversation. Spontaneous communication, social give-and-take, and making small talk are likely to be difficult for him.
His childhood or his relationship with his parents was restrictive, unloving or unhappy in ways that may prevent Oleg from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Oleg Cassini feels that he was deprived in one form or another, regardless of whether he actually was or not. His early life - at least as Cassini 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, Oleg Cassini needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Oleg accomplish this task.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Oleg Cassini 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 Oleg Cassini needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Seeking harmonious interpersonal relationships, cooperation, and togetherness, as well as the desire to please or appease other people, are drives that come very naturally to Oleg Cassini - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Cassini tends to look outside himself for approval or answers, and he leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge his own path through life is a key factor in his self-development.
Oleg Cassini is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about his intentions or desires, and he can become enmeshed in a quagmire of "little white lies". Stark honesty - both inward and toward others - is the only way out! This, however, leads to the need to confront some of Cassini's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Oleg Cassini needs to cultivate his ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on his own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in his dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Oleg Cassini needs to integrate in tangible ways: how he makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what he does with the resources he has. Oleg Cassini should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
The following are specific activities that will support Oleg Cassini in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Cassini, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Oleg Cassini has to learn to communicate and express himself through the written or spoken word. It is best for Oleg to study, learn skills and develop his intellectual interests and capacities. Cassini needs to become involved in sharing and exchanging information with others and in developing his intellectual reasoning ability. Oleg Cassini should practice using his mind, his thinking skills and his ability to be objective. "Work smarter, not harder" might be a motto for him.
Writing, teaching, recording, transcribing, dialoguing, negotiating, mediating, communicating, or facilitating clear communication are significant activities for Oleg Cassini to pursue.
Oleg has an inner need to share his experiences with others and he talks to his friends and acquaintances in a very open manner. Socially minded, Oleg Cassini likes to cultivate close relationships, especially with women.
Oleg Cassini tends to have a certain fear of crowds and may find it hard to integrate himself into a group of people. Working with others is not easy for Cassini, and he may frequently encounter upsets or hostility.
