challenges and difficulties
Lucas either overvalues or undervalues his possessions and assets. He can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. Jerry Lucas may deny himself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of his labors. He may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Jerry Lucas feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
He is serious by nature, and may have difficulty making small talk or participating in friendly, personal exchanges.
Jerry Lucas tries to be strictly accurate and is critical of people who exaggerate or discuss subjects they really know little about. Lucas withholds his thoughts and opinions until he has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Jerry's silence discomforts others.
His mental concentration is very good but his breadth of understanding may not be.
Once he decides what he wants to do, Jerry Lucas will pursue his goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for his deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Jerry feel a little out of step with others. Jerry Lucas takes things a little more seriously and has an inclination to be somewhat of a fanatic, although probably not flamboyantly so; as a result, others may not be aware of how deeply Jerry feels and how driven he is about the things that are important to him. Jerry Lucas has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to him, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
Jerry Lucas tends to be emotionally shy, sensitive and awkward and may have difficulty expressing his true feelings, even when his affection is real. One of Lucas' parents may have been too strict and unloving, and as a result, Jerry may fear close relationships.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jerry Lucas 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 Jerry Lucas needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Instinctively he is a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary. Very often, however, Jerry stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Jerry Lucas has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that he must be self-reliant and that only he can come up with the answers he needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate him from others, or make Jerry Lucas feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Jerry Lucas calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Jerry Lucas needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
It is in fostering a personal vision or philosophy of life, whether through religious or philosophical studies, education or the wisdom of distant lands or cultures that Jerry Lucas is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Jerry Lucas needs to cultivate the qualities described above in this endeavor. Long distance communication and involvement with foreigners is likely to be significant to Lucas.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Jerry Lucas back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Jerry Lucas tends to over-rely on luck or grace, living for tomorrow and gambling. Jerry is overconfident and tends to overextend himself and take on more than is humanly possible. Jerry is often dogmatic about his philosophy of life or religious beliefs.
Jerry Lucas seems to be a loner, rather serious and quiet. Perhaps he is burdened by family conditions that weigh him down. Jerry prefers to associate with older or more authoritative people and is happier in a subordinate position.
He is very social, loves artistic events and entertainment, and has the ability to show his feelings without reservation. Jerry Lucas probably found joy in learning things early in life and he stays close to his family and other relations.
Some of his relationships tend to be a bit peculiar and Jerry should beware of becoming involved with bad company. Jerry Lucas could be easily lured by others to take part in dubious or underhanded schemes.
