challenges and difficulties
Rose Bird often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something she cannot name or specify, and she may have both: great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.
Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or oversensitivity is an important task for Bird.
Her fears revolve around money and material security, and Rose Bird works very hard to ensure that her assets are solid. She may be very conservative, even stingy, with her money because she is afraid there will not be enough. She may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
The conflict between spiritual needs and ideals versus material desires or limitations of the "real world" is one of Rose's ongoing challenges. It may be hard for Rose Bird to sort out her true values, especially when she is enmeshed in the demands of mundane life. Times of retreat, isolation, meditation and prayer could be helpful to Bird in this regard. Finding inner strength through spirituality and attunement to a higher source is ultimately the answer for her.
She is a bit skeptical, somewhat irritable, and others may think of Rose Bird as quarrelsome or nagging. Her nervousness seems to stem from her tendency to over-work herself, and Bird should try not to make more demands on others than they are able to handle.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Rose Bird 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 Rose Bird needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Rose Bird to become distracted from her path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to her. Rose Bird needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Rose directs her attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", she is apt to dabble, scatter her energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for her life and aligning her daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Bird's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward her personal development.
It is in any involvements she has with teams, clubs, organizations, networks, and the like that Rose Bird is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above need to be channeled into some sort of group effort or experience, or have some impact on society at large.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Rose Bird back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Being bound to past events and experiences because of her desire to belong, deep attachments to family and the familiar (even if they are neither nourishing nor helpful), the desire to nurture or be nurtured by others, and a strong resistance to cutting the umbilical cord.
The following are specific activities that will support Rose Bird in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Bird, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Rose Bird should develop faith and confidence both in herself and in a higher power that can guide, nourish, and help her. She needs to expand her willingness to dream and envision better things in life by studying religion, philosophy and other subjects that enable her to acquire a larger, more inclusive view of the world.
Being generous with her time, energy and resources in helping others achieve a better life will in turn benefit Rose Bird.
