challenges and difficulties
Nixon either overvalues or undervalues her possessions and assets. She can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. Pat Nixon may deny herself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of her labors. She may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Pat Nixon feels that she does not have "enough" to make her feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) she has!
It may be difficult for Pat Nixon to play spontaneously or just let her hair down, for she tends to inhibit that side of her by being too self-conscious and concerned with the impression she is making.
Pat may work very hard at some sport or creative medium in order to excel, for she wants very, very much to be noticed, acknowledged, and recognized as special in some way. Though she may indeed be outstanding, Pat Nixon also needs to learn to relax and enjoy herself more.
Her faith, optimism, and sense of possibilities are tempered by much caution, and often doubt or skepticism as well. Whatever hopes or visions Pat Nixon has for her life are firmly held in check by her sense of reality. At times she may wish for more freedom, but Pat also fears it and hang back. Pat Nixon may blame practical limitations or some external condition or the prevailing Authority for her own inhibitions.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Pat Nixon 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 Pat Nixon 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 Pat Nixon - so much so that she seeks them out at her own expense. When she is under stress, Nixon tends to look outside herself for approval or answers, and she leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge her own path through life is a key factor in her self-development.
Pat Nixon is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about her intentions or desires, and she 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 Nixon's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Pat Nixon needs to cultivate her ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on her own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in trying to strike a balance between Nixon's inner, personal life and her career or involvement with the world at large that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Pat Nixon needs to focus attention on her home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
Pat Nixon seems to be a loner, rather serious and quiet. Perhaps she is burdened by family conditions that weigh her down. Pat prefers to associate with older or more authoritative people and is happier in a subordinate position.
