challenges and difficulties
Zeppo Marx has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Zeppo is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack joyfulness and the ability to play. Zeppo Marx often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Marx's which may inhibit him a great deal. Zeppo Marx must avoid becoming heavy and cynical, or becoming a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose practicality and realism squeeze out the playful, imaginative side of life.
Zeppo Marx takes his commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. His strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Marx 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 Zeppo Marx and it may seem that he is always "working on" his marriage rather than enjoying it. However, Marx will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
His aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Zeppo Marx pursues his aims in a systematic, disciplined, and thorough manner, and he is willing to takes his time, advancing slowly and steadily on his way towards his goal.
Sometimes Zeppo Marx underestimates what is possible, and holds himself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
Zeppo Marx tends to be his own worst enemy, demanding inhuman perfection of himself and harshly criticizing or persecuting himself when he does not measure up. Perhaps circumstances or relationships in his life have been extremely difficult and demanding, reinforcing Zeppo's belief that he must struggle alone.
He is capable of tremendous effort and of overcoming great odds and handicaps. Through these efforts Zeppo Marx develops his power and inner strength. However, Zeppo Marx should not make life harder than it is. He must give himself permission to let up sometimes, and to realize that he is only human.
Zeppo wants to go his own way and tends to withdraw into himself. He prefers to be alone and tends to cut himself off from other people. Zeppo Marx could be a bit too serious and conservative.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Zeppo Marx 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 Zeppo Marx 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 Zeppo Marx 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.
Zeppo Marx 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. Marx also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward his appetites and desires, as Zeppo Marx tends to overindulge and/or deny himself excessively.
It is in his work and his relationships with co-workers, employers, and employees that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Integrating the qualities described above into Marx's work and daily routine will lead to greater satisfaction, improved health, and personal growth.
Zeppo has an extremely magnetic personality along with strong sexual attraction. Zeppo Marx tends to put his heart and soul into his work and may prefer to work with partners of the opposite sex.
