challenges and difficulties
Prince Andrew has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Prince Andrew is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack the capacity for joy and play. Prince Andrew often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Prince Andrew's that may inhibit him a great deal. Prince Andrew must avoid becoming cumbersome and cynical, or a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose sense of practicality and realism rob him of the playful, imaginative side of life.
Prince Andrew takes both his work and his health very seriously, but he may demand so much of himself at work that he compromises his health. Prince Andrew can become a workaholic, not so much because he has lofty ambitions, but because he never feels like he has done enough. Prince Andrew is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that he may not enjoy it at all.
Prince Andrew can also get overly involved in self-improvement or his health, and he tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
He is inclined to preserve and build up his heritage. Others are attracted to him, but at the same time Prince Andrew gives the impression of being unapproachable. Prince Andrew tends to hold back his feelings and is somewhat inhibited with others, especially in his love relationships.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Prince Andrew 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 Prince Andrew needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
His natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing his situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing his situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Prince Andrew copes with stress. Prince Andrew also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
His development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Prince Andrew to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in his way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Prince Andrew is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Prince Andrew's relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, he needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
Prince Andrew tends to pick his friends and associates very carefully and is always on the lookout for responsible and congenial people. This enables Prince Andrew to feel secure with his colleagues and enjoy good relationships with them.
Prince Andrew should take extra care in his relationships with people, for he could easily end up in the wrong crowd. Prince Andrew could be the victim of fraud and falsehood or through association may become an accessory to malicious action.
