challenges and difficulties
Quincy 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 Jones.
His childhood or his relationship with his parents was restrictive, unloving or unhappy in ways that may prevent Quincy from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Quincy Jones feels that he was deprived in one form or another, regardless of whether he actually was or not. His early life - at least as Jones remembers it - may have been marked by emotional separation or repression of his needs and feelings. Forgiving his parents and/or letting go of any resentments he has about the limitations that he experienced early in his life is crucial. Also, Quincy Jones needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Quincy accomplish this task.
He is not afraid of hard work and leaves no stone unturned in the pursuit of his objectives. Quincy Jones has a strong desire to overcome any difficulties or obstacles in his way and will do this at all cost, even if it means having to use force.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Quincy Jones 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 Quincy Jones needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Jones' deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, he is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and he can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Quincy Jones has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. He should let his feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use his imagination and let his dreams emerge!
The arena he is most likely to wrestle with these issues is in playful self-expression, games or sports, and creativity. Quincy Jones should try to develop any artistic, expressive, creative potentials he feels he possesses, utilizing the qualities described above.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Quincy Jones 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.
Escapism through fantasy, intoxicants, or passive, vicarious activities (television, movies, etc.), waiting for a miracle instead of taking constructive steps to help himself, aimlessness or an inability to make and keep commitments, and self deception regarding other people. Quincy has a tendency to be a martyr.
The following are specific activities that will support Quincy Jones in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Jones, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
He needs to give and receive affection, love and pleasure (primarily with the qualities described previously). Quincy Jones has to learn to respond to, appreciate and create beauty, art, harmonious surroundings and relationships. He needs to be aware of aesthetics and to do things in a gracious, pleasing manner. Quincy Jones has to start enjoying life, nurturing friendships and cultivating his ability to love and to receive love.
His relationships with others may be rather unstable and unreliable. With a somewhat negative attitude and weak will, Quincy Jones avoids opposition and escapes his responsibilities. In his relationships he is likely to choose people who are asocial.
Quincy Jones tends to have deep bonds with the people he associates with and is likely to encounter some unusual or fated relationships. Some of his contacts could be with very influential people who may be of help to Jones in the future.
