challenges and difficulties
Morrison fears of becoming emotionally dependent upon others, and may distance himself or deny his needs for relationships of closeness and intimacy so that he will not be vulnerable to rejection or abandonment. On the other hand, Van Morrison may cling excessively or need constant reassurance from loved ones and family. Developing a deep, inner sense of security, as well as the ability to give and receive nurturing are important tasks for Van.
Van Morrison has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life which colors everything he does. Caution and realism are his virtues though Van limits himself at times by being too careful, shy, or fearful, and not believing in himself enough or being assertive when necessary.

Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Van Morrison 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 Van Morrison needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
When under stress, Van Morrison is apt to shut off the flow of his emotions and ignore his needs and feelings in order to do what he perceives as his 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 him, makes life more of a burden than an adventure.
Fostering his tender, caring, feminine, and nurturing aspects is an important step in Van Morrison's growth. Van Morrison needs to learn how to nourish and lovingly tend to both himself and others. Letting himself be taken care of sometimes is okay!
It is deep within himself, as Van Morrison faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Van Morrison keeps hidden from public view where he is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
The qualities described above can also be beneficially channeled into some sort of charitable work, altruistic service or ministering to people in need.
