challenges and difficulties
Samaire Armstrong takes her personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing experience. She may feel that relationships in general require more of her than they are worth, and Samaire enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. Samaire Armstrong also fears entrapment in close relationships.
Samaire may be plagued by fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death. 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, Samaire Armstrong is very careful about joining forces, and especially her material resources, with others. Armstrong wants to keep her own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
Her aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Samaire Armstrong pursues her aims in a systematic, disciplined and thorough manner, and she is willing to take her time, advancing slowly and steadily toward her goal.
Sometimes Samaire Armstrong underestimates what is possible, and holds herself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
She is inclined to exercise self-control and tries to suppress her inner excitability or irritability. However, Armstrong can be somewhat self-willed and determined to be independent. If Samaire Armstrong feels that someone is holding her down too much, she may suddenly break up the relationship.
When she is with others, Samaire Armstrong may often suddenly become inhibited. She is inclined to be afraid of confrontations and probably will avoid group activities as much as possible.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Samaire Armstrong 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 Samaire Armstrong needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Samaire Armstrong'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 Armstrong's instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Samaire Armstrong 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 Samaire should let go of this notion. Finding her own center and doing what gives her delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Samaire Armstrong can offer the world at large.
It is in her marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. She may see the qualities that she needs to develop more fully (described above) in her partner. It is important for Samaire Armstrong to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in her life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them herself. Samaire Armstrong has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about herself through others.
The following are specific activities that will support Samaire Armstrong in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Armstrong, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Samaire Armstrong 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.
Samaire Armstrong should develop her listening skills and deepen her understanding and appreciation of women and their perspective. Samaire Armstrong 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 Samaire Armstrong'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, Samaire may want to explore the potential of past-life regression to tap into gifts she has already developed).
