Josh Lucas is searching for stability; he wants to find a firm, unchanging structure for his life. But his efforts to achieve this ideal are often vain, because unconsciously, he is also inhabited by the opposite desire. Every time he reaches what he believes to be a good balance, he realizes he wants something entirely different. He would do well to become aware that the concepts of stability and balance are difficult to apply to life. By definition, life is movement, change, and perpetual instability.
Josh Lucas often finds it hard to fit in with society’s rules and conventions. The mask of sociability most well-adapted people wear is difficult for him to assume, and it is hard for him to act out the roles expected of him as a normal member of the community. The usual social values and rewards, like money, respect, and prestige, only mildly interest him. His refusal or inability to play the social game may make it hard for him to find a job, which may have negative consequences on his financial and legal status. Reluctant and unwilling to adapt to the demands of social life, he sometimes unwittingly makes mistakes when a new project is in the planning stages. For example, he may leave gaps in a job application, botch up an interview with a prospective employer, or make a big mistake when bidding for a contract. But his financial difficulties may clear up when his emotional ones do.
You are a very sensitive person who is very receptive to your surroundings. You often live in osmosis with your surroundings and find it difficult to communicate your feelings to other people or engage in any structured, analytical thought. This may stem from a misunderstanding when you were a child. Unable to understand the disciplinary measures or authority of your teachers, you may have withdrawn into yourself in self-defense. It was then that you constructed your rich inner life, the part of you they could not invade, and cut many of your ties to the outside. Because you enjoyed indulging in your inner life, it may have been difficult for you to acquire an objective vision of reality. As a result, even today, you tend to create imaginary problems for yourself, regardless of the objective facts outside. Although your imagination is a source of inspiration and intuition, your fluid inner structure and organization sometimes make it difficult for you to grasp the essence of your dreams and share them with other people. You are not at all combative, and this tends to hinder your efforts to fit into society and assert yourself productively. You are likely to prefer fantasy to reality, but your refusal to abandon your unattainable dreams is a psychological trap you have fallen into without realizing it. You must understand that by running away from your obligations and commitments, you only increase the feelings of guilt and incompetence which made reality so distasteful in the first place. Once you free yourself from this pernicious process, you have a great deal of potential for fulfilling yourself in the outer world, either by devoting yourself to some sort of social work or by cultivating your considerable artistic talents.
Josh Lucas has an inalienable awareness of the void and the vanity of existence. He is sometimes disoriented and deconstructed by an unknowable, unconscious force and tends to ignore or disparage the superficial pleasures and pains of daily life, preferring to dive into the depths of human experience as deeply as his intellectual, emotional, and spiritual capacities permit. Grappling with his “fundamental nature,” with the deepest and most primitive part of himself, he is sometimes aghast at the discovery of the sheer power of the life instinct and feels an imperious need to cope with it. This special consciousness he has been endowed with is somewhat beyond the bounds of conventional schools of human understanding and thought and may be a source of identity problems for him at the outset. It is not easy for him to recognize himself in any social or narcissistic models or identify with any existing roles or attitudes, so he sometimes finds himself forced to construct and assert his own identity on a basis which may impress others with its intensity, if not its eccentricity.
Josh Lucas is always on the move because his personality is ruled by his mind. He is always curious about new contacts, and he takes care to inform himself about many different subjects. He enjoys conversation and communication, and he hopes to be admired for his talent and wit. Due to his wide variety of interests, however, he can be something of a dilettante, and his thinking may sometimes lack discipline.
Josh Lucas is an expansive, affable, and communicative associate. Indeed, some people find him generous almost to a fault! He gives of himself and his resources unstintingly. Paradoxically, there are times when he is self-focused. He reacts instinctively, without taking the trouble to analyze a given situation, and is prone to misjudge. As a result, his everyday life may be riddled with a whole variety of practical problems. Indeed, he senses a conflict between his social life and his family and will sometimes find it hard to fulfill himself in both spheres at the same time. His attitude toward his private life may inhibit his ambitions for social or career expansion; at worst, society (the law) may impinge on his private life. He should be careful not to project his personal problems onto his partner. If, instead, the two of them analyzed the problem, they might be able to find opportunities to resolve it together.
Although Josh Lucas seems to keep to himself, he is actually incredibly sensitive. In some cases, his rather austere and rigid behavior and his refusal to yield too readily to sentimentality discourage others from being too demonstrative of their tenderness and affection. He has spells of melancholy in which he does not feel worthy of being loved, and tends to forbid himself emotional fulfillment. An austere or somewhat traumatic childhood experience may be the source of this behavior. He may have suffered rejection in his infancy, and, as a result, lacked the parental love which is essential to the cohesion of a personality and identity. In order to feel secure, and to protect himself from ever suffering rejection or abandonment again, he withdrew into himself and developed his aloofness as a defense mechanism. When he finally let down his defenses and allow himself to express his feelings, he tends to become impassioned and exalted. He is fairly introverted and egocentric, and has a powerful sense of his own identity.
Josh Lucas’s intellect is sometimes haunted by disturbing philosophical anguishes and a need for security. As a result, his adaptation to life and surroundings is somewhat complicated. Certain inhibitions may sometimes inhibit his intellectual activity.
Josh Lucas was sensitive and imaginative, which sometimes caused him trouble distinguishing dreams from reality. Although his bubbling imagination provided an abundant source of inspiration for creative or spiritual evolution, it tended to be less helpful and positive in matters that concerned his self-assertion as responsible and self-sufficient in a relationship. In a relationship, he was extremely romantic and sometimes didn’t see others the way they really were.
Josh Lucas is a person who often keeps their feelings to themselves. They are very private, and do not like to share their sensitive side with anyone.

Josh Lucas is bubbly, breezy, and attractive. He will not settle down readily. Although to protect himself from his own unconscious he needs the support and structure a stable, solid mate would provide, he is likely to prefer someone just as unstructured as he is – perhaps a younger person… Unless his need to live an original lifestyle drives him to meet an extraordinary individual with whom he develops a relationship characterized more by friendship than love. Together, they may develop a fulfilling and exciting intellectual life.

Josh Lucas has an ardent and amorous character, and his relationships with the other sex are enlivened by intensity and passion. A charmer perpetually engaged in a quest for the ideal love, he is often more in love with the idea of love than with his partners. As a result, his love life may be subject to some instability. He is generally attracted to original people who defy norms, standards, and classifications, and expect them to amaze and fascinate him. Love is often a matter of luck with him. Even when a relationship falls apart, he does not see the experience as a failure or a tragedy; instead, he seems to learn valuable lessons from his mistakes. Psychologically, his emotion contributes positively and efficiently to his evolution. From another standpoint, his acute sensitivity predisposes him to original and subtle tastes; he is so receptive to beauty and attached to the concepts of truth and balance that they may all combine to yield remarkable creative potential.
Josh Lucas has a lively wit which gives him great agility and scope and a broad field of consciousness which enlivens his curiosity and makes him love variety and change. His mind is alert and his speech is full of verve, humor, and sometimes impudence. These abilities are great resources in communication, discussion, and debate. He is a storehouse of information and ideas of every kind and delights in manipulating words and concepts, discovering new things, and sharpening his memory for trivial facts. This mental agitation could sometimes make him scattered, however, or lacking in coherence and discipline.
Josh Lucas tries to shun subjectivity and be as objective as possible. His thoughts are usually structured, and his reasoning, based on objective facts or experience, usually relates to practical goals.
Josh Lucas is a person who makes mistakes in judgment. His understanding of things is not always in tune with social realities or prevailing opinion. His judgments tend to be hasty; his decisions are reckless. Moreover, he tends to overestimate his abilities and usually aims higher than might be realistic. Once an enterprise or project is underway, he may try to avoid obstacles by dodging certain duties. Because his vision of the world differs somewhat from social realities, he should be extremely careful and scrupulous in regard to legal matters, in order to avoid any complications of that type. He is sometimes slightly dishonest in his relations; he may break promises or attempt to duck responsibility. However, he should realize that such conduct toward other people is also a form of unconscious self-loathing. If he continues to behave in such a way, he is exposing himself to the same lack of sincerity from his partners.
