challenges and difficulties
Cushing doubts his own intelligence and mental capacities, and he may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Peter 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.
He is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with his duty, his public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. Peter Cushing 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 Peter Cushing 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.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Peter Cushing 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 Cushing 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 Peter Cushing - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Cushing 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.
Peter Cushing 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 Cushing's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Peter Cushing 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 marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. He may see the qualities that he needs to develop more fully (described above) in his partner. It is important for Peter Cushing to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in his life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them himself. Peter Cushing has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about himself through others.
Cushing cooperates well with others and has the ability to give and receive stimulating suggestions. Peter Cushing is always receptive to new ideas and ready for spontaneous group efforts. He seems to have instant recall and is likely to act just as quickly.
