challenges and difficulties
Stephen Fry has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, he prevents himself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Fry is more rigid and dogmatic than he realizes. His approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Stephen Fry takes his own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if he is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
His fears revolve around money and material security, and Stephen Fry works very hard to ensure that his assets are solid. He may be very conservative, even stingy with his money because he is afraid there will not be enough. He may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Stephen Fry 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 Stephen Fry needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
He is capable of withstanding outside influences and remaining constant and steady on his path, but when under stress Stephen Fry becomes downright obstinate and implacable, resisting any change no matter how necessary or desirable the change may be. Tenaciously trying to preserve the status quo and hold on to what he has, he is apt to ignore the subtle signals he receives about needing to do something differently, which often leads to a crisis.
Stephen Fry needs to learn the limits of his ability to control life, and to accept and even embrace change and loss of the familiar, in order to allow for new life and growth. "Letting go" is a major life lesson for him. Fry also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward his appetites and desires, as Stephen Fry tends to overindulge and/or deny himself excessively.
It is in his relationships with others that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Stephen Fry between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Stephen Fry seesaws between being inordinately concerned with his self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about him. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Fry's task.
