challenges and difficulties
Peter Gabriel has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. He is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that he discourages himself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Gabriel knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyze or pick things apart mentally. Peter Gabriel may be something of a hypochondriac also. Peter must learn that he does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax his unnecessarily high or strict standards.
His fears revolve around money and material security, and Peter Gabriel 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.
His faith, optimism, and sense of possibilities are tempered by much caution, and often doubt or skepticism as well. Whatever hopes or visions Peter Gabriel has for his life are firmly held in check by his sense of reality. At times he may wish for more freedom, but Peter also fears it and hang back. Peter Gabriel may blame practical limitations or some external condition or the prevailing Authority for his own inhibitions.
Because of his inner reserve and basic shyness, Peter Gabriel appears to lack adaptability and is a bit inhibited in dealing with other people. His approach is somewhat serious and it is difficult for Peter to face the public.
He is quite cool and reserved in matters of love relationships and tends to hold back his inclination for love. Somewhat inhibited in regard to relationships, Peter Gabriel is inclined to feel that he is better off staying by himself.
Peter Gabriel tends to have a pessimistic outlook and he seems to be plagued by deep inner conflicts, which could severely undermine his strength. Self-critical and uncertain about his goals, Peter feels that he cannot live up to his ideals and end up disappointed.
He is susceptible to deception by others and may encounter people who dissuade him from his objectives and try to use his vulnerability to their advantage. Peter Gabriel should watch his relationships very carefully so he will not get seriously hurt or disappointed.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Peter Gabriel 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 Gabriel 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 Gabriel - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Gabriel 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 Gabriel 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 Gabriel'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 Gabriel 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 fostering a personal vision or philosophy of life, whether through religious or philosophical studies, education or the wisdom of distant lands or cultures that Peter Gabriel is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Peter Gabriel needs to cultivate the qualities described above in this endeavor. Long distance communication and involvement with foreigners is likely to be significant to Gabriel.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Peter Gabriel back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
The need to be first all of the time and demonstrate an aggressive or bossy attitude, impatience or irritability; an over-eagerness to use force or violence to gain advantage and the tendency to resort to fighting or using confrontation too quickly.
Peter Gabriel has a vivacious and lively manner with a tendency to shock others at times by bluntly blurting out his remarks. Peter loves to be with people, but tends to get overly excited when he is with them.
