challenges and difficulties
Woody Allen often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something he cannot name or specify, and he 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 Allen.
Woody Allen takes his commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. His strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Allen a trustworthy and dedicated partner, but he often feels that marriage or any binding commitment between him and another person is too restrictive and burdensome, and thus seeks to avoid it. Close relationships may be more work than pleasure for Woody Allen and it may seem that he is always "working on" his marriage rather than enjoying it. However, Allen will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
Woody has an inner conflict between idealism, hope, and faith in the future versus doubt and oppression by limitations and practical realities. Woody Allen needs to develop discipline and patience in order to achieve his aspirations. Allen will grow by learning to accept frustration and to persevere in spite of obstacles.
His outlook on life is inclined to be somewhat negative and Woody Allen tries to avoid relationships and social interaction as much as possible. There is a morose side to Woody's nature that makes him feel that no one cares about him, that life is difficult and perhaps not even worthwhile.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Woody Allen 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 Woody Allen needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Woody Allen has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that he is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Woody Allen needs to foster mature self-discipline, self-control, and personal responsibility.
When under stress, he has a strong instinct to retreat back to the nest, to be a child again, or to become overwhelmed with feelings and longings to be taken care of. Also, he may encourage others to depend on him emotionally (and otherwise) to an unhealthy degree. Woody Allen needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
The arena he is most likely to wrestle with these issues is in playful self-expression, games or sports, and creativity. Woody Allen should try to develop any artistic, expressive, creative potentials he feels he possesses, utilizing the qualities described above.
Allen always looks to establish relationships with groups or associations and has the ability to blend in unobtrusively. Woody Allen has a way of integrating others needs and feelings, at the same time realizing and considering the proceedings of the association.
He is very social and his relationships with others are very warm and expansive. It is essential for Woody's emotional welfare to be surrounded by people and he is an active member of groups or associations he belongs to.
