challenges and difficulties
Picasso either overvalues or undervalues his possessions and assets. He can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. Pablo Picasso may deny himself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of his labors. He may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Pablo Picasso feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
He is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with his duty, his public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. Pablo Picasso understands the need for hard work and careful planning in order to accomplish anything substantial and he is capable of much self-discipline and patience once he sets his sights on a goal.
But Pablo Picasso is very judgmental and hard on himself if he fails to attain success, and he can become dry, bitter, or cynical if the world does not recognize his efforts.
Pablo Picasso takes his ideals and dreams very seriously and goes through periods of fervent dedication to a lofty ideal or vision. Pablo has the ability to acquire true spiritual or imaginative insight, but he can also become so involved in his imaginative, idealistic pursuits that he looses perspective and develops feelings of alienation and isolation.
Although Pablo Picasso generally is happy, at times he could become a bit inhibited and because of this, he may let good opportunities slip by occasionally. Although he is interested in people, Picasso also tends to seek seclusion periodically.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Pablo Picasso 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 Pablo Picasso needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Pablo Picasso to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. Pablo Picasso needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Pablo directs his attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", he is apt to dabble, scatter his energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for his life and aligning his daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Picasso's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.
The arena he is most likely to wrestle with these issues is in playful self-expression, games or sports, and creativity. Pablo Picasso should try to develop any artistic, expressive, creative potentials he feels he possesses, utilizing the qualities described above.
The following are specific activities that will support Pablo Picasso in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Picasso, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Pablo Picasso should care for and nourish children, plants, pets or other people. He needs to make a home, create and sustain strong relationships with his family or a community that can support him and give him a sense of safety and belonging.
Pablo Picasso should develop his listening skills and deepen his understanding and appreciation of women and their perspective. Pablo Picasso has to learn to trust his own feelings, intuitions and emotional needs. He needs to care for himself in an accepting, non-judgmental way.
It is in Pablo Picasso's best interest to take all that is good and helpful from his past and use it in a new way. (If he is so inclined, Pablo may want to explore the potential of past-life regression to tap into gifts he has already developed).
