challenges and difficulties
Raśl Castro has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Raśl is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack the capacity for joy and play. Raśl Castro 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 Castro's that may inhibit him a great deal. Raśl Castro 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.
It may be difficult for Raśl Castro to play spontaneously or just let his hair down, for he tends to inhibit that side of his by being too self-conscious and concerned with the impression he is making.
Raśl may work very hard at some sport or creative medium in order to excel, for he wants very, very much to be noticed, acknowledged and recognized as special in some way. Though he may indeed be outstanding, Raśl Castro also needs to learn to relax and enjoy himself more.
Raśl Castro tends to seesaw between hope, optimism and faith versus doubt and oppression due to limitations and practical realities. He needs to overcome impatience and restlessness in order to achieve his dreams and desires for a better life.
Raśl Castro feels that he must work very hard and struggle against tremendous odds that impede his chances of fulfilling his life's ambitions. Raśl may adopt a very hard, cynical, or nihilistic attitude that will only drag him down further. There are major problems with his father or figures of authority. Raśl Castro may fail simply to spite "them", without realizing that he is primarily hurting himself. If he can overcome his feelings of loneliness, bitterness or isolation, and direct his energies toward constructive endeavors, Castro can be immensely effective because of his tremendous tenacity and potential for achievement.
Raśl Castro becomes tense and upset rather easily. He becomes irritated by the unwillingness of others to make changes. In his eagerness to see his inspirations materialize, Castro is inclined to forego tact and diplomacy in favor of achieving his goals. His occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
His physical vitality and mental energy tend to be somewhat low. For this reason Raśl Castro should try to avoid any unnecessary emotional and physical stress and maintain good health habits in order to enhance his resistance to illness.
Raśl Castro tends to be somewhat insecure and uncertain about his direction in life. Frequently plagued by doubt and fear, he is inclined to worry a lot. Because Castro lacks the confidence to fight back, he may allow himself to become the victim of others.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Raśl Castro 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 Raśl Castro needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Seeking harmonious interpersonal relationships, cooperation, and togetherness, as well as the desire to please or appease other people, are drives that come very naturally to Raśl Castro - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Castro tends to look outside himself for approval or answers, and he leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge his own path through life is a key factor in his self-development.
Raśl Castro is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about his intentions or desires, and he can become enmeshed in a quagmire of "little white lies". Stark honesty - both inward and toward others - is the only way out! This, however, leads to the need to confront some of Castro's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Raśl Castro needs to cultivate his ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on his own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Raśl Castro has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Castro 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 following are specific activities that will support Raśl Castro in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Castro, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Raśl Castro should be willing to become more of a free thinker, to experiment and change, to loosen his ties to tradition and the known and to allow for new developments. He needs to practice getting involved in an area involving new techniques, rapid changes and innovation. Raśl can be part of the avant-garde promoting such changes - be it in science, music or social relationships. Raśl Castro has to be willing to be different and perhaps to be considered eccentric or odd.
