challenges and difficulties
Veronica Lake takes her personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing experience. She may feel that relationships in general require more of her than they are worth, and Veronica enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. Veronica Lake also fears entrapment in close relationships.
Veronica 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, Veronica Lake is very careful about joining forces, and especially her material resources, with others. Lake wants to keep her own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
Once she decides what she wants to do, Veronica Lake will pursue her goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for her deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Veronica feel a little out of step with others. Veronica Lake takes things a little more seriously and has an inclination to be somewhat of a fanatic, although probably not flamboyantly so; as a result, others may not be aware of how deeply Veronica feels and how driven she is about the things that are important to her. Veronica Lake has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to her, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
She may feel inhibited in her relationships with others and give the impression of being unapproachable and wanting to keep her distance. Veronica Lake thinks about her feelings for a long time before she expresses them to anyone and she tends to hide her inner self.
Because she is somewhat inhibited when initiating relationships with others, Veronica Lake may prefer to be by herself. Veronica may feel that she does not fit in very well with others and as a result, may have difficulties with team-work.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Veronica Lake 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 Veronica Lake needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Her natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing her situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing her situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Veronica Lake copes with stress. Veronica Lake also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
Her development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Veronica Lake to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Veronica Lake has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Lake 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.
The following are specific activities that will support Veronica Lake in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Lake, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Veronica Lake should care for and nourish children, plants, pets or other people. She needs to make a home, create and sustain strong relationships with her family or a community that can support her and give her a sense of safety and belonging.
Veronica Lake should develop her listening skills and deepen her understanding and appreciation of women and their perspective. Veronica Lake has to learn to trust her own feelings, intuitions and emotional needs. She needs to care for herself in an accepting, non-judgmental way.
It is in Veronica Lake's best interest to take all that is good and helpful from her past and use it in a new way. (If she is so inclined, Veronica may want to explore the potential of past-life regression to tap into gifts she has already developed).
She enjoys relationships with others who can tune into the spiritual world and Veronica Lake is likely to join groups or associations that sponsor psychics and that explore the connection with karmic influences.
