challenges and difficulties
Zelda Fitzgerald has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, she prevents herself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Fitzgerald is more rigid and dogmatic than she realizes. Her approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Zelda Fitzgerald takes her own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if she is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
It may be difficult for Zelda Fitzgerald to play spontaneously or just let her hair down, for she tends to inhibit that side of her by being too self-conscious and concerned with the impression she is making.
Zelda may work very hard at some sport or creative medium in order to excel, for she wants very, very much to be noticed, acknowledged, and recognized as special in some way. Though she may indeed be outstanding, Zelda Fitzgerald also needs to learn to relax and enjoy herself more.
The conflict between spiritual needs and ideals versus material desires or limitations of the "real world" is one of Zelda's ongoing challenges. It may be hard for Zelda Fitzgerald to sort out her true values, especially when she is enmeshed in the demands of mundane life. Times of retreat, isolation, meditation and prayer could be helpful to Fitzgerald in this regard. Finding inner strength through spirituality and attunement to a higher source is ultimately the answer for her.
Fitzgerald may find it difficult to relate to people and express her feelings, especially in love relationships. On one hand, Zelda Fitzgerald wants relationships and on the other she would rather be by herself. A sense of personal inadequacy makes Zelda withdraw from others and feeling lonely as a result.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Zelda Fitzgerald instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that she is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for her. The direction Zelda Fitzgerald needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Zelda Fitzgerald to become distracted from her path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to her. Zelda Fitzgerald needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Zelda directs her attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", she is apt to dabble, scatter her energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for her life and aligning her daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Fitzgerald's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward her personal development.
The arena she is most likely to wrestle with these issues is in playful self-expression, games or sports, and creativity. Zelda Fitzgerald should try to develop any artistic, expressive, creative potentials she feels she possesses, utilizing the qualities described above.
The following are specific activities that will support Zelda Fitzgerald in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Fitzgerald, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Zelda Fitzgerald should be willing to become more of a free thinker, to experiment and change, to loosen her ties to tradition and the known and to allow for new developments. She needs to practice getting involved in an area involving new techniques, rapid changes and innovation. Zelda can be part of the avant-garde promoting such changes - be it in science, music or social relationships. Zelda Fitzgerald has to be willing to be different and perhaps to be considered eccentric or odd.
