challenges and difficulties
Bogdanovich 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. Peter Bogdanovich 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 Peter Bogdanovich feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
His fears revolve around money and material security, and Peter Bogdanovich works very hard to ensure that his assets are solid. He may be very conservative, even stingy, with his money because he is afraid there will not be enough. He may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
Once he decides what he wants to do, Peter Bogdanovich will pursue his goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for his deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Peter feel a little out of step with others. Peter Bogdanovich takes things a little more seriously and has an inclination to be somewhat of a fanatic, although probably not flamboyantly so; as a result, others may not be aware of how deeply Peter feels and how driven he is about the things that are important to him. Peter Bogdanovich has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to him, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
His vitality tends to be a bit low and Peter may have to fight against the tendency to be inactive. Easily discouraged, Peter Bogdanovich is inclined toward pessimism. Perhaps his upbringing was too authoritative, causing problems in his relationships with his parents.
Peter Bogdanovich tends to suppress his feelings and may be a bit inhibited in love relationships. Often times he may feel rejected or he may give the impression of rejecting others himself. Perhaps his mother or father has a difficult time showing their affection.
Peter Bogdanovich has a desire to break away from tradition and to free himself from restricting conditions. Somewhat inflexible and rigid, he may suddenly become inhibited before he initiates his objectives, which could work out to Bogdanovich's disadvantage.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Peter Bogdanovich 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 Peter Bogdanovich 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 Peter Bogdanovich 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.
Peter Bogdanovich 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. Bogdanovich also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward his appetites and desires, as Peter Bogdanovich tends to overindulge and/or deny himself excessively.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Peter Bogdanovich has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Bogdanovich will see these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual dependency involved. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Peter Bogdanovich back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Peter Bogdanovich's rigid self-control overly restricts his ability to freely express himself or explore possibilities. He is excessively concerned with work, duty and security. He tends to be fearful, judgmental towards himself or others, and can feel alone and cut off from sources of nourishment outside himself. Peter Bogdanovich should try to learn to relax and recognize that not everything is Bogdanovich's responsibility.
He is a born leader and has the ability to persuade members of a group or association he belongs to. Bogdanovich always promotes the cultivation of good fellowship and teamwork, insuring success in any plans or joint undertakings he may pursue.
He is highly emotional and tends to display his feelings in a theatrical way. Peter Bogdanovich seems to enjoy being somewhat eccentric and finds it difficult to adapt himself to others. Although he may seek emotional fulfillment, Peter does not do well in relationships and team work.
