challenges and difficulties
Yanni both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable to others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting them get to know him intimately does not come easily to Yanni, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Yanni is very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive. Learning to relinquish control in personal relationships, and to be completely open, is an important task for Yanni.
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Yanni may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to him. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Yanni may tenaciously cling to his grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
His overall outlook on life is serious, and Yanni may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his step!
Yanni has a serious outlook on life and a tendency to dwell on his own flaws as well as those of everyone else. Yanni may be rather reserved with people and may find it difficult to express himself, thereby leaving a more negative impression than he intended.
His attitude toward life is quite serious and he is very thorough. Yanni has the need to be by himself and think out everything very carefully before he takes action. Yanni may enjoy doing some type of creative artwork involving hard or heavy materials.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Yanni 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 Yanni needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Yanni has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that he is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Yanni 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. Yanni needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
It is deep within himself, as Yanni faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Yanni keeps hidden from public view where he is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
The qualities described above can also be beneficially channeled into some sort of charitable work, altruistic service or ministering to people in need.
