challenges and difficulties
Marley fears of becoming emotionally dependent upon others, and may distance herself or deny her needs for relationships of closeness and intimacy so that she will not be vulnerable to rejection or abandonment. On the other hand, Rita Marley 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 Rita.
She is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with her duty, her public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. Rita Marley understands the need for hard work and careful planning in order to accomplish anything substantial and she is capable of much self-discipline and patience once she sets her sights on a goal.
But Rita Marley is very judgmental and hard on herself if she fails to attain success, and she can become dry, bitter, or cynical if the world does not recognize her efforts.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Rita Marley 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 Rita Marley needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Rita Marley needs to take what she has learned (either through formal education or her own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it or express it in a way that can benefit others. Knowledge and understanding, which does not enhance either Rita's quality of life or that of persons in her world, is of little real value. Putting Marley's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in her daily relationships, and in the multiple choices she makes every day, will enable Rita Marley to really test her belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Rita Marley is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Rita Marley needs to cultivate her ability to live in the present!
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Rita Marley has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Marley 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 Rita Marley in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Marley, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Rita Marley should care for and nourish children, plants, pets or other people. She needs to make a home, create and sustain strong relationships with her family or a community that can support her and give her a sense of safety and belonging.
Rita Marley should develop her listening skills and deepen her understanding and appreciation of women and their perspective. Rita Marley has to learn to trust her own feelings, intuitions and emotional needs. She needs to care for herself in an accepting, non-judgmental way.
It is in Rita Marley's best interest to take all that is good and helpful from her past and use it in a new way. (If she is so inclined, Rita may want to explore the potential of past-life regression to tap into gifts she has already developed).
Rita Marley should be willing to become more of a free thinker, to experiment and change, to loosen her ties to tradition and the known and to allow for new developments. She needs to practice getting involved in an area involving new techniques, rapid changes and innovation. Rita can be part of the avant-garde promoting such changes - be it in science, music or social relationships. Rita Marley has to be willing to be different and perhaps to be considered eccentric or odd.
