challenges and difficulties
Yul Brynner has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. He is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that he discourages himself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Brynner knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyze or pick things apart mentally. Yul Brynner may be something of a hypochondriac also. Yul must learn that he does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax his unnecessarily high or strict standards.
His fears revolve around money and material security, and Yul Brynner works very hard to ensure that his assets are solid. He may be very conservative, even stingy, with his money because he is afraid there will not be enough. He may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
Yul Brynner seesaws between playing it safe, and doing something unique and original, between self-control and letting loose, between being a responsible adult and a rebellious adolescent, between what Yul has to or should do and what his spontaneous impulses tell him to do. All of this creates enormous inner tension as well as friction with people in his environment. Yul Brynner may, for instance, bitterly resent government or authority figures who "crush his individuality", yet ignore his obligations and responsibilities, thus ensuring that they will pursue him. Learning to give each side its due is an ongoing challenge for Brynner.
His vitality tends to be a bit low and Yul may have to fight against the tendency to be inactive. Easily discouraged, Yul Brynner is inclined toward pessimism. Perhaps his upbringing was too authoritative, causing problems in his relationships with his parents.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Yul Brynner 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 Yul Brynner needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
He is capable of withstanding outside influences and remaining constant and steady on his path, but when under stress Yul Brynner becomes downright obstinate and implacable, resisting any change no matter how necessary or desirable the change may be. Tenaciously trying to preserve the status quo and hold on to what he has, he is apt to ignore the subtle signals he receives about needing to do something differently, which often leads to a crisis.
Yul Brynner needs to learn the limits of his ability to control life, and to accept and even embrace change and loss of the familiar, in order to allow for new life and growth. "Letting go" is a major life lesson for him. Brynner also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward his appetites and desires, as Yul Brynner tends to overindulge and/or deny himself excessively.
It is in trying to strike a balance between Brynner's inner, personal life and his career or involvement with the world at large that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Yul Brynner needs to focus attention on his home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Yul Brynner 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.
His feelings are heightened when he is with others and Yul Brynner has the ability to open up to them and show his feeling without reservation. Lead by his instincts, Yul is likely to have many spontaneous relationships with other people.
