challenges and difficulties
Siān 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 Phillips.
Siān Phillips takes both her work and her health very seriously, but she may demand so much of herself at work that she compromises her health. Siān can become a workaholic, not so much because she has lofty ambitions, but because she never feels like she has done enough. Siān Phillips is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that she may not enjoy it at all.
Phillips can also get overly involved in self-improvement or her health, and she tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
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 Siān Phillips has for her life are firmly held in check by her sense of reality. At times she may wish for more freedom, but Siān also fears it and holds back. Siān Phillips may blame practical limitations, some external condition or the prevailing Authority for her own inhibitions.
She prefers to work alone rather than with others. Content on her own, Phillips tends to become inhibited when she is with others, especially women. Siān Phillips may feel that the effort required to be with others is too great and probably not even worth it.
Sometimes circumstances appear to be working against Siān, and she may have to confront major challenges. Siān Phillips will probably have to work harder than others in order to succeed, thereby rendering her hard and cold hearted in her decision-making.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Siān Phillips 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 Siān Phillips needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Phillips' deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, she is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and she can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Siān Phillips has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. She should let her feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use her imagination and let her dreams emerge!
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 Siān Phillips to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in her life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them herself. Siān Phillips has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about herself through others.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Siān Phillips back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
The need to be first all of the time and demonstrate an aggressive or bossy attitude, impatience or irritability; an over-eagerness to use force or violence to gain advantage and the tendency to resort to fighting or using confrontation too quickly.
Escapism through fantasy, intoxicants, or passive, vicarious activities (television, movies, etc.), waiting for a miracle instead of taking constructive steps to help herself, aimlessness or an inability to make and keep commitments, and self deception regarding other people. Siān has a tendency to be a martyr.
