challenges and difficulties
Stephen Baldwin often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something he cannot name or specify, and he may have both: great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.
Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or oversensitivity is an important task for Baldwin.
Fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death may plague Stephen. He strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for him.
On another level entirely, Stephen Baldwin is very careful about joining forces, and especially his material resources, with others. Baldwin wants to keep his own and other people's property and assets very distinct.

Stephen Baldwin needs to develop discipline and patience in order to achieve his aspirations. Baldwin will grow by learning to accept frustration and to persevere in spite of obstacles.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Stephen Baldwin 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 Baldwin needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Stephen Baldwin benefits by becoming more aware of the rhythm of the seasons and the natural world, learning to slow down and allow life to unfold in its own time. Nurturing a garden, a child, or some other living, growing thing gives Stephen Baldwin a sense of inner balance.
Stephen Baldwin has a tendency to be deeply suspicious, to not take anything at face value and to see hidden agendas and dark motives even where none exist! Life does not have to be a constant conflict... Stephen needs to learn to accept things as they are.
Baldwin also needs to develop patience, peace and stability by grounding himself in his daily work and behaving consistently and reliably towards others.
It is in his public life and career that Stephen Baldwin is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The latter will impact Baldwin's reputation and standing in his community or professional circle, as well as how Stephen Baldwin achieves his important life goals and aspirations.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Stephen Baldwin back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Escapism through fantasy, intoxicants, or passive, vicarious activities (television, movies, etc.), waiting for a miracle instead of taking constructive steps to help himself, aimlessness or an inability to make and keep commitments, and self deception regarding other people. Stephen has a tendency to be a martyr.
The following are specific activities that will support Stephen Baldwin in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Baldwin, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Stephen Baldwin should develop true self-confidence and the willingness to put himself "out there", be seen and shine. Stephen needs to be willing to take on a leading role. He needs to be a hero - a protagonist in his own story - by cultivating the courageous, active, and positive masculine qualities he possesses. Doing creative work that he is proud of - anything that comes from Baldwin's heart and bears the stamp of Baldwin's individuality - is important. Also, being a mentor, a helpful, encouraging force in the life of someone less experienced than he is a way for Stephen Baldwin to grow and become more whole himself.
