challenges and difficulties
Peter has difficulty asserting his will and desires directly and openly. He may also suppress his anger and aggressiveness. Developing self-confidence, courage, and faith in himself are important tasks for Yarrow.
Peter Yarrow has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life which colors everything he does. Caution and realism are his virtues though Peter limits himself at times by being too careful, shy, or fearful, and not believing in himself enough or being assertive when necessary. Others find Peter Yarrow difficult to get to know intimately, as Yarrow tends to distance himself from them or to put forth a rather stern, "adult" face to the world.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Peter Yarrow 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 Yarrow 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 Yarrow 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 Yarrow 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. Yarrow also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward his appetites and desires, as Peter Yarrow 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 Yarrow has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Yarrow 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.

He is somewhat restless and nervous, but enjoys communicating with people and is constantly confronting others with his new ideas. Peter has the ability to develop new relationships quickly and he can also be a stimulating force in group activities.
He may have an inner fear of separation and could feel left out or ignored at times. Peter Yarrow may have not received much affection while he was growing up or it had to be shared with others. Peter could find it difficult to show his love in his relationships.
