challenges and difficulties
Vincent Gallo has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Vincent is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack the capacity for joy and play. Vincent Gallo often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Gallo's that may inhibit him a great deal. Vincent Gallo must avoid becoming cumbersome and cynical, or a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose sense of practicality and realism rob him of the playful, imaginative side of life.
Vincent Gallo takes both his work and his health very seriously, but he may demand so much of himself at work that he compromises his health. Vincent can become a workaholic, not so much because he has lofty ambitions, but because he never feels like he has done enough. Vincent Gallo is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that he may not enjoy it at all.
Gallo can also get overly involved in self-improvement or his health, and he tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
His aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Vincent Gallo pursues his aims in a systematic, disciplined and thorough manner, and he is willing to take his time, advancing slowly and steadily toward his goal.
Sometimes Vincent Gallo underestimates what is possible, and holds himself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
Basically shy, Gallo tends to be somewhat inhibited in love relationships and may feel uncomfortable or awkward expressing his love for someone. Vincent Gallo longs for love relationships and dreams about love, but is also inclined to torment himself because of a seeming lack of affection.
Vincent Gallo tends to be somewhat insecure and uncertain about his direction in life. Frequently plagued by doubt and fear, he is inclined to worry a lot. Because Gallo lacks the confidence to fight back, he may allow himself to become the victim of others.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Vincent Gallo 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 Vincent Gallo needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
His natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing his situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing his situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Vincent Gallo copes with stress. Vincent Gallo also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
His development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Vincent Gallo to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in his dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Vincent Gallo needs to integrate in tangible ways: how he makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what he does with the resources he has. Vincent Gallo should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Vincent Gallo back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Being bound to past events and experiences because of his desire to belong, deep attachments to family and the familiar (even if they are neither nourishing nor helpful), the desire to nurture or be nurtured by others, and a strong resistance to cutting the umbilical cord.
The following are specific activities that will support Vincent Gallo in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Gallo, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Vincent Gallo's path to wholeness involves confronting his dark and hidden recesses, bringing them out into the open, and transforming himself in the process. Healing abilities develop as a result of Gallo's willingness to experience and transform deep emotions such as grief, anger, and pain. Furthermore, bringing light to the darkness and pain in the world without becoming overwhelmed by it is a significant challenge for Vincent.
