challenges and difficulties
Tori has an innate distrust of groups and/or a cynical attitude toward society that may leave her feeling out of step and unable to participate in activities with her peers. Overcoming a sense of aloofness and alienation from others is an important task for Amos.
She is serious-minded and may have difficulty making light social conversation or participating in friendly, personal interchanges.
Tori Amos tries to be strictly accurate and she is critical of people who exaggerate or talk on subjects they really know little about. Amos withholds her thoughts and opinions until she has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Tori's silence discomforts others.
Her mental concentration is very good but her breadth of understanding may not be.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Tori Amos instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that she is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for her. The direction Tori Amos needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
When under stress, Tori Amos is apt to shut off the flow of her emotions and ignore her needs and feelings in order to do what she perceives as her duty or simply what the practical realities of the situation dictate. This can lead to a certain rigidity and inflexibility. If overdone, self-control, self-discipline, or an exaggerated concern over what society, family or others expect of her, makes life more of a burden than an adventure.
Fostering her tender, caring, feminine, and nurturing aspects is an important step in Tori Amos' growth. Tori Amos needs to learn how to nourish and lovingly tend to both herself and others. Letting herself be taken care of sometimes is okay!
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Tori Amos has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Amos 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.
