Théo van Gogh
challenges and difficulties
Théo Van Gogh has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, he prevents himself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Van Gogh is more rigid and dogmatic than he realizes. His approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Théo Van Gogh 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 Théo Van Gogh 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 Théo Van Gogh 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 Théo Van Gogh 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 Théo Van Gogh 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.
Théo Van Gogh 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. Van Gogh also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward his appetites and desires, as Théo Van Gogh tends to overindulge and/or deny himself excessively.
It is in his dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Théo Van Gogh needs to integrate in tangible ways: how he makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what he does with the resources he has. Théo Van Gogh should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
