challenges and difficulties
McGowan 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, Rose McGowan 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 Rose.
Fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death may plague Rose. She strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for her.
On another level entirely, Rose McGowan is very careful about joining forces, and especially her material resources, with others. McGowan wants to keep her own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
Her faith, optimism, and sense of possibilities are tempered by much caution, and often doubt or skepticism as well. Whatever hopes or visions Rose McGowan has for her life are firmly held in check by her sense of reality. At times she may wish for more freedom, but Rose also fears it and hang back. Rose McGowan may blame practical limitations or some external condition or the prevailing Authority for her own inhibitions.
Once she decides what she wants to do, Rose McGowan will pursue her goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for her deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Rose feel a little out of step with others. Rose McGowan takes things a little more seriously and has an inclination to be somewhat of a fanatic, although probably not flamboyantly so; as a result, others may not be aware of how deeply Rose feels and how driven she is about the things that are important to her. Rose McGowan has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to her, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
At times Rose McGowan struggles with nebulous worries and insecurities, fears which may be difficult to name. Mostly, she may be afraid of getting acquainted with the inner workings of her mind and soul, feeling uneasy with anything irrational or intangible. Rose McGowan has to work hard to overcome being overly serious regarding the spiritual side of life, especially if her religious upbringing emphasized guilt and retribution. Reorienting herself in the direction of spiritual optimism will do much to lift the cloud of worry that settles over Rose occasionally.
Lacking confidence in herself, Rose McGowan has the feeling that her luck has abandoned her. She is inclined to sit and wait for the right opportunities to come along, placing too much emphasis on wishful thinking and is disappointed when nothing happens.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Rose McGowan 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 McGowan needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Rose McGowan has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that she is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Rose McGowan needs to foster mature self-discipline, self-control, and personal responsibility.
When under stress, she 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, she may encourage others to depend on her emotionally (and otherwise) to an unhealthy degree. Rose McGowan needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
It is in her dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Rose McGowan needs to integrate in tangible ways: how she makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what she does with the resources she has. Rose McGowan should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Rose McGowan back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Rose McGowan's rigid self-control overly restricts her ability to freely express herself or explore possibilities. She is excessively concerned with work, duty and security. She tends to be fearful, judgmental towards herself or others, and can feel alone and cut off from sources of nourishment outside herself. Rose McGowan should try to learn to relax and recognize that not everything is McGowan's responsibility.
Rose McGowan tends to be a bit too idealistic and may place too much hope on her relationships, resulting in frequent disappointments. Rose could be attracted to naive people, but some of her contacts also may turn out to be swindlers.
