challenges and difficulties
Rachel Miner has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. She is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that she discourages herself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Miner knows it should be done.
She frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Rachel Miner may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Rachel must learn that she does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax her unnecessarily high or strict standards.
It may be difficult for Rachel Miner to play spontaneously or just let her hair down, for she tends to inhibit that side of her by being too self-conscious and concerned with the impression she is making.
Rachel may work very hard at some sport or creative medium in order to excel, for she wants very, very much to be noticed, acknowledged and recognized as special in some way. Though she may indeed be outstanding, Rachel Miner also needs to learn to relax and enjoy herself more.
Rachel Miner strives and struggles a great deal with her ideals or spiritual aspirations. She may go through periods of self-denial, asceticism, and in-depth study of religious philosophy and spiritual practices, or she may lose heart and become cynical about religious ideals; however, she can never quite divorce herself from her idealistic concerns.
Rachel tries to build her life on solid ground, but may find it difficult to move forward because she always tends to look back. This could result in feelings of inferiority and periodic depression.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Rachel Miner instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that she is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for her. The direction Rachel Miner needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Rachel Miner's path lies in her development as an individual, the discovery of her own strengths and joys, the capacity to express her uniqueness and to stand out in a crowd. This involves becoming a leader, even though Miner's instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Rachel Miner is apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, she may believe that striving to do her personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but Rachel should let go of this notion. Finding her own center and doing what gives her delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Rachel Miner can offer the world at large.
It is in trying to strike a balance between Miner's inner, personal life and her career or involvement with the world at large that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Rachel Miner needs to focus attention on her home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Rachel Miner back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Being bound to past events and experiences because of her 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.
She is reserved and somewhat conservative in presenting her viewpoints to others and prefers a philosophical discussion to small talk. Rachel Miner is quite selective in her choice of subjects and only wants to study what is really of interest to her.
Miner makes a big impression on everyone she meets and has the ability to attract many people. Others find Rachel Miner very fascinating and she is likely to see herself as their model in groups or associations.
Miner is inclined to seek out relationships with people who have the same interests and she has a desire to work with them on obtaining mutual objectives. Some of Rachel's contacts or introductions could come about suddenly.
