challenges and difficulties
Vanessa 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 Williams.
Vanessa may be plagued by fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death. 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 Williams is very careful about joining forces, and especially her material resources, with others. Williams wants to keep her own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
Vanessa Williams strives and struggles a great deal with her ideals or spiritual aspirations. She may go through periods of self-denial, asceticism, and in-depth study of religious philosophy and spiritual practices, or she may lose heart and become cynical about religious ideals; however, she can never quite divorce herself from her idealistic concerns.
She is subject to rash decisions and impulsive actions that may have sudden, unexpected consequences and undesirable results. As she lacks the capacity to adapt, Vanessa Williams may encounter considerable tension in her relationships and is likely to have disputes or even violent fights with others.
Since she lacks the capacity to adapt, Vanessa Williams tends to be rebellious and fight hard against oppression. This could even lead to violent incidents, so Vanessa should try to keep her temper at bay. She may have to work extremely hard and handle a great many responsibilities.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Vanessa Williams 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 Williams needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
When under stress, Vanessa Williams 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 Vanessa Williams' growth. Vanessa Williams 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 her relationships with others that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Vanessa Williams between acting spontaneously and being true to herself versus modifying herself or her behavior to suit others. Vanessa Williams seesaws between being inordinately concerned with her self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about her. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Williams' task.
