challenges and difficulties
Riki Rachtman often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something he cannot name or specify, and he may sense both a great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.
Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or over sensitivity is an important task for Rachtman.
Riki Rachtman takes his commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. His strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Rachtman a trustworthy and dedicated partner, but he often feels that marriage or any binding commitment between him and another person is too restrictive and burdensome, and thus seeks to avoid it. Close relationships may be more work than pleasure for Riki Rachtman and it may seem that he is always "working on" his marriage rather than enjoying it. However, Rachtman will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
Riki has an inner conflict between idealism, hope and faith in the future versus doubt and oppression due to limitations and practical realities.

Riki Rachtman feels that he must work very hard and struggle against tremendous odds that impede his chances of fulfilling his life's ambitions.
