challenges and difficulties
Tom Harmon has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. He is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that he discourages himself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Harmon knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyze or pick things apart mentally. Tom Harmon may be something of a hypochondriac also. Thomas must learn that he does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax his unnecessarily high or strict standards.
Harmon is generally not a "joiner" and he does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If Tom Harmon does participate in a group, he may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or he may simply feel that he does not fit in with the others.
Being alone or with older, more experienced people suits Tom Harmon better than being with groups of his own peers.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Tom Harmon 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 Tom Harmon 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 Tom Harmon 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.
Tom Harmon 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. Harmon also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward his appetites and desires, as Tom Harmon 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 Tom Harmon 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. Tom Harmon should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
The following are specific activities that will support Tom Harmon in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Harmon, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Tom Harmon should care for and nourish children, plants, pets or other people. He needs to make a home, create and sustain strong relationships with his family or a community that can support him and give him a sense of safety and belonging.
Tom Harmon should develop his listening skills and deepen his understanding and appreciation of women and their perspective. Tom Harmon has to learn to trust his own feelings, intuitions and emotional needs. He needs to care for himself in an accepting, non-judgmental way.
It is in Tom Harmon's best interest to take all that is good and helpful from his past and use it in a new way. (If he is so inclined, Thomas may want to explore the potential of past-life regression to tap into gifts he has already developed).
His nature is a bit restless and unpredictable and because of this, others may see Thomas as somewhat unstable. Tom Harmon is inclined to involve himself with unusual enterprises and tends to become overly excited in the presence of other people.
