challenges and difficulties
Rosie has an innate distrust of groups and/or a cynical attitude toward society that may leave her feeling out of step and unable to participate in activities with her peers. Overcoming a sense of aloofness and alienation from others is an important task for O'Donnell.
Rosie O'Donnell takes her commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. Her strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes O'Donnell a trustworthy and dedicated partner, but she often feels that marriage or any binding commitment between her and another person is too restrictive and burdensome, and thus seeks to avoid it. Close relationships may be more work than pleasure for Rosie O'Donnell and it may seem that she is always "working on" her marriage rather than enjoying it. However, O'Donnell will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
Rosie O'Donnell strives and struggles a great deal with her ideals or spiritual aspirations. She may go through periods of self-denial, asceticism, and in-depth study of religious philosophy and spiritual practices, or she may lose heart and become cynical about religious ideals; however, she can never quite divorce herself from her idealistic concerns.
Rosie O'Donnell tends to be her own worst enemy, demanding inhuman perfection of herself and harshly criticizing or persecuting herself when she does not measure up. Perhaps circumstances or relationships in her life have been extremely difficult and demanding, reinforcing Rosie's belief that she must struggle alone.
She is capable of tremendous effort and of overcoming great odds and handicaps. Through these efforts Rosie O'Donnell develops her power and inner strength. However, Rosie O'Donnell should not make life harder than it is. She must give herself permission to let up sometimes, and to realize that she is only human.
She may feel hindered or oppressed by other people frequently and overcoming difficulties jointly with others could come suddenly. Rosie O'Donnell seems to be afraid of her own courage and may find it hard to express her desires.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Rosie O'Donnell 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.

Rosie O'Donnell's path lies in her development as an individual, the discovery of her own strengths and joys, the capacity to express her uniqueness and to stand out in a crowd. This involves becoming a leader, even though O'Donnell's instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Rosie O'Donnell is apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, she may believe that striving to do her personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but Rosie should let go of this notion. Finding her own center and doing what gives her delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Rosie O'Donnell can offer the world at large.
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 Rosie O'Donnell 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.
