challenges and difficulties
Sting takes his personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort, and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing. He may feel that relationships in general require more of him than they are worth, and Sting enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. Sting also fears entrapment in close relationships.
He is serious-minded and may have difficulty making light social conversation or participating in friendly, personal interchanges.
Sting tries to be strictly accurate and he is critical of people who exaggerate or talk on subjects they really know little about. Gordon Sumner withholds his thoughts and opinions until he has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Sting's silence discomforts others.
His mental concentration is very good but his breadth of understanding may not be.
Sting tends to seesaw between hope, optimism, and faith versus doubt and oppression by limitations and practical realities. He needs to overcome impatience and restlessness in order to achieve his dreams and desires for a better life.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Sting 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 Sting 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 Gordon Sumner's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, he is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and he can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Sting has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. He should let his feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use his imagination and let his dreams emerge!
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Sting has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Gordon Sumner 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.
Sting has a very obliging manner and is always in search for new relationships. He is able to identify with people quite easily and probably will make many friends who can be of help to him.
Gordon Sumner considers the ability to think and speak convincingly as the most powerful instrument one can possess. He always strives for intellectual control in his environment and tends to dominate his relationships. Sting has a strong desire to be the spokesman in his community.
