challenges and difficulties
Phillip has an innate distrust of groups and/or a cynical attitude toward society that may leave him feeling out of step and unable to participate in activities with his peers. Overcoming a sense of aloofness and alienation from others is an important task for Schofield.
His fears revolve around money and material security, and Phillip Schofield 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.
Phillip Schofield strives and struggles a great deal with his ideals or spiritual aspirations. He may go through periods of self-denial, asceticism, and in-depth study of religious philosophy and spiritual practices, or he may lose heart and become cynical about religious ideals; however, he can never quite divorce himself from his idealistic concerns.
Phillip Schofield tends to be his own worst enemy, demanding inhuman perfection of himself and harshly criticizing or persecuting himself when he does not measure up. Perhaps circumstances or relationships in his life have been extremely difficult and demanding, reinforcing Phillip's belief that he must struggle alone.
He is capable of tremendous effort and of overcoming great odds and handicaps. Through these efforts Phillip Schofield develops his power and inner strength. However, Phillip Schofield should not make life harder than it is. He must give himself permission to let up sometimes, and to realize that he is only human.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Phillip Schofield 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 Phillip Schofield needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Phillip Schofield's path lies in his development as an individual, the discovery of his own strengths and joys, the capacity to express his uniqueness and to stand out in a crowd. This involves becoming a leader, even though Schofield's instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Phillip Schofield is apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, he may believe that striving to do his personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but Phillip should let go of this notion. Finding his own center and doing what gives him delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Phillip Schofield can offer the world at large.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Phillip Schofield has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Schofield 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 Phillip Schofield back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Being bound to past events and experiences because of his desire to belong, deep attachments to family and the familiar (even if they are neither nourishing nor helpful), the desire to nurture or be nurtured by others, and a strong resistance to cutting the umbilical cord.
