challenges and difficulties
Howard both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable with others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting himself be known in a deep way does not come easily to Ron, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Ron Howard is very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive. Learning to relinquish control in personal relationships, and to be completely open, is an important task for Howard.
Ron Howard takes his commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. His strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Howard 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 Ron Howard and it may seem that he is always "working on" his marriage rather than enjoying it. However, Howard will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
He is likely to have very intense experiences in his emotional life and should guard against feelings of depression and inhibition. Ron Howard could be plagued by inner turmoil and obsessive ideas or notions.
Not very adaptable, Ron Howard tends to be rebellious and fight hard against oppression. This could even lead to violent incidents, so Ron should try to keep his temper under control. He may have to work extremely hard and may have a lot of responsibilities that he cannot let go.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Ron Howard 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 Ron Howard needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Ron Howard has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that he is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Ron Howard needs to foster mature self-discipline, self-control, and personal responsibility.
When under stress, he has a strong instinct to retreat back to the nest, to be a child again, or to become overwhelmed with feelings and longings to be taken care of. Also, he may encourage others to depend on him emotionally (and otherwise) to an unhealthy degree. Ron Howard needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
It is in his public life and career that Ron Howard is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The latter will impact Howard's reputation and standing in his community or professional circle, as well as how Ron Howard achieves his important life goals and aspirations.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Ron Howard back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Going to extremes, willful rebelliousness and an instinctive anti-authoritarian attitude. Ron Howard seeks constant (and often purposeless) movement or change, involvement with unreliable people, and individual freedom at any cost.
The following are specific activities that will support Ron Howard in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Howard, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Ron Howard should care for and nourish children, plants, pets or other people. He needs to make a home, create and sustain strong relationships with his family or a community that can support him and give him a sense of safety and belonging.
Ron Howard should develop his listening skills and deepen his understanding and appreciation of women and their perspective. Ron Howard has to learn to trust his own feelings, intuitions and emotional needs. He needs to care for himself in an accepting, non-judgmental way.
It is in Ron Howard's best interest to take all that is good and helpful from his past and use it in a new way. (If he is so inclined, Ron may want to explore the potential of past-life regression to tap into gifts he has already developed).
