challenges and difficulties
Selena 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 Gomez.
Her childhood or her relationship with her parents was restrictive, unloving or unhappy in ways that may prevent Selena from allowing other people to get close to her in later life. Selena Gomez feels that she was deprived in one form or another, regardless of whether she actually was or not. Her early life - at least as Gomez remembers it - may have been marked by emotional separation or repression of her needs and feelings. Forgiving her parents and/or letting go of any resentments she has about the limitations that she experienced early in her life is crucial. Also, Selena Gomez needs to build her own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into her home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Selena accomplish this task.
Her faith, optimism, and sense of possibilities are tempered by a great deal of caution, and often doubt or skepticism as well. Whatever hopes or visions Selena Gomez has for her life are firmly held in check by her sense of reality. At times she may wish for more freedom, but Selena also fears it and holds back. Selena Gomez may blame practical limitations, some external condition or the prevailing Authority for her own inhibitions.
Once she decides what she wants to do, Selena Gomez will pursue her goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for her deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Selena feel a little out of step with others. Selena Gomez 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 Selena feels and how driven she is about the things that are important to her. Selena Gomez 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.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Selena Gomez 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 Selena Gomez needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Selena Gomez has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that she is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Selena Gomez 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. Selena Gomez needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
It is in her way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Selena Gomez is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Gomez's relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, she needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
