challenges and difficulties
Yves Saint-Laurent often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something he cannot name or specify, and he may sense both a great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.
Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or over sensitivity is an important task for Saint-Laurent.
Yves Saint-Laurent has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life that colors everything he does. Caution and realism are his virtues though Yves limits himself at times by being too careful, shy or fearful, not believing in himself enough, or lacking the required assertiveness. Others find Yves Saint-Laurent difficult to get to know intimately, as Saint-Laurent tends to distance himself from them or to outwardly adopt a rather stern, "adult" demeanor.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Yves Saint-Laurent 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 Yves Saint-Laurent needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Yves Saint-Laurent has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that he is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Yves Saint-Laurent 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. Yves Saint-Laurent needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
It is in any involvements he has with teams, clubs, organizations, networks, and the like that Yves Saint-Laurent is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above need to be channeled into some sort of group effort or experience, or have some impact on society at large.
He is very social and his relationships with others are very warm and expansive. It is essential for Yves' emotional welfare to be surrounded by people and he is an active member of groups or associations he belongs to.
