challenges and difficulties
Shaun Cassidy has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, he prevents himself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Cassidy is more rigid and dogmatic than he realizes. His approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Shaun Cassidy takes his own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if he is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
He is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with his duty, his public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. Shaun Cassidy understands the need for hard work and careful planning in order to accomplish anything substantial and he is capable of much self-discipline and patience once he sets his sights on a goal.
But Shaun Cassidy is very judgmental and hard on himself if he fails to attain success, and he can become dry, bitter, or cynical if the world does not recognize his efforts.
He is likely to have very intense experiences in his emotional life and should guard against feelings of depression and inhibition. Shaun Cassidy may be plagued by inner turmoil and obsessive ideas or notions.
He is inclined to be rather serious and withdrawn. As he feels very uncomfortable in the presence of others, Shaun Cassidy shies away from social contacts and prefers to be by himself.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Shaun Cassidy instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that he is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for him. The direction Shaun Cassidy needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Instinctively he is a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary. Very often, however, Shaun stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Shaun Cassidy has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that he must be self-reliant and that only he can come up with the answers he needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate him from others, or make Shaun Cassidy feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Shaun Cassidy calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Shaun Cassidy needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Shaun Cassidy has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Cassidy will see these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual dependency involved. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
