challenges and difficulties
Vanessa Redgrave often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something she cannot name or specify, and she may have both: great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.
Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or oversensitivity is an important task for Redgrave.
Fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death may plague Vanessa. She strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for her.
On another level entirely, Vanessa Redgrave is very careful about joining forces, and especially her material resources, with others. Redgrave wants to keep her own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
The conflict between spiritual needs and ideals versus material desires or limitations of the "real world" is one of Vanessa's ongoing challenges. It may be hard for Vanessa Redgrave to sort out her true values, especially when she is enmeshed in the demands of mundane life. Times of retreat, isolation, meditation and prayer could be helpful to Redgrave in this regard. Finding inner strength through spirituality and attunement to a higher source is ultimately the answer for her.
She is not afraid of hard work and leaves no stone unturned in the pursuit of her objectives. Vanessa Redgrave has a strong desire to overcome any difficulties or obstacles in her way and will do this at all cost, even if it means having to use force.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Vanessa Redgrave 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 Vanessa Redgrave needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Vanessa Redgrave to become distracted from her path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to her. Vanessa Redgrave needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Vanessa directs her attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", she is apt to dabble, scatter her energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for her life and aligning her daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Redgrave's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward her personal development.
The arena she is most likely to wrestle with these issues is in playful self-expression, games or sports, and creativity. Vanessa Redgrave should try to develop any artistic, expressive, creative potentials she feels she possesses, utilizing the qualities described above.
Vanessa Redgrave has a tendency to shy away from other people, and she reacts toward others in an almost fearful way. Redgrave seems to lack confidence in herself and for this reason may feel that she lacks the ability to adapt easily into relationships with others.
Vanessa has an inclination to gossip and spread stories or she could be the subject of gossip herself at times. Her perception of partnership and family relationships tends to be somewhat unrealistic, and Vanessa Redgrave may put up a good front and pretend to have a harmonious life.
