challenges and difficulties
Gandhi is wary of becoming emotionally dependent on others, and may distance himself or deny his needs for relationships of closeness and intimacy so that he will not be vulnerable to rejection or abandonment. On the other hand, Rajiv Gandhi may cling excessively or need constant reassurance from loved ones and family. Developing a deep, inner sense of security, as well as the ability to give and receive nurturing are important tasks for Rajiv.
Gandhi is generally not a "joiner" and he does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If Rajiv Gandhi does participate in a group, he may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or he may simply feel that he does not fit in with the others.
Being alone or with older, more experienced people suits Rajiv Gandhi better than being with groups of his own peers.
Rajiv Gandhi 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.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Rajiv Gandhi 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 Rajiv Gandhi needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
When under stress, Rajiv Gandhi is apt to shut off the flow of his emotions and ignore his needs and feelings in order to do what he perceives as his duty or simply what the practical realities of the situation dictate. This can lead to a certain rigidity and inflexibility. If overdone, self-control, self-discipline, or an exaggerated concern over what society, family or others expect of him, makes life more of a burden than an adventure.
Fostering his tender, caring, feminine, and nurturing aspects is an important step in Rajiv Gandhi's growth. Rajiv Gandhi needs to learn how to nourish and lovingly tend to both himself and others. Letting himself be taken care of sometimes is okay!
It is deep within himself, as Rajiv Gandhi faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Rajiv Gandhi keeps hidden from public view where he is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
The qualities described above can also be beneficially channeled into some sort of charitable work, altruistic service or ministering to people in need.
Rajiv Gandhi has a vivacious and lively manner with a tendency to shock others at times by blurting out blunt comments. Rajiv loves to be with people, but tends to get overly excited when he is with them.
His feelings are heightened when he is with others and Rajiv Gandhi has the ability to open up to them and show his feelings without reservation. Rajiv Gandhi is led by his instincts and likely to have many spontaneous relationships with other people.
Because of rigid and somewhat unpleasant family relationships, Rajiv Gandhi is inclined to seclude himself from others. He may prefer to live in archaic surroundings and may be interested in antiques.
