Although Jim Sturgess is quite proud and likes to show off and impress other people with his accomplishments and appearance (as described on the previous page) - he is really quite practical, solid, and down to earth (as discussed below). Because of this, he is likely to actually earn the right to be admired - that is, to have actually done something to be proud of.
He is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of his greatest assets. Once Sturgess' course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
Jim Sturgess has a very practical nature; he wants to see concrete, tangible results for his efforts, and he is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of his "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for he has a great love of the physical world and he wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Jim Sturgess will work long and persistently, he also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and he wants to enjoy what he has worked for. In fact, Sturgess can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Jim Sturgess also loves the beauty of the natural world and he probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, his needs are simple and he is easy to please. Jim Sturgess has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless he is forced to do so. He is not very demanding emotionally, though he does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of his faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon Sturgess for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, Jim Sturgess usually maintains his poise and equanimity. Jim Sturgess also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. He makes an excellent parent, especially if he follows his instincts more often than "the experts".
Jim has three major faults: one is his bullheaded obstinacy. The second is his unwillingness to deviate from his safe, predictable routine. And the third is Sturgess' tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Jim Sturgess lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to new horizons.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Sturgess. Jim Sturgess has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. He is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Jim Sturgess may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
There is an ongoing, subtle conflict within Jim Sturgess between his conscious attitudes and aspirations and his deeper emotional and subconscious beliefs, needs and feelings. This creates considerable inner stress and sometimes paralyzing indecision, mostly due to the fact that Jim may be trying to follow a path that is at odds with his subconscious desires. Chronic tightness or tension in his body may well be a signal that Jim Sturgess is denying or suppressing the messages from his subconscious or emotional self.
Ideally, Jim Sturgess will learn to accept and express these two different sides of himself. Should he fail to do so, Sturgess is likely to be drawn into many relationships with people who reflect his denied or repressed qualities and seem to make his life difficult. (Also read chapter 4 in order to get a better picture of the duality described here.)
If he follows his true nature, his life is apt to be unconventional, unusual, controversial and full of insecurity and excitement. Jim Sturgess cannot and will not be forced into a pre-set mold, and Jim finds it difficult to conform. His offbeat interests and tastes lead Sturgess to ventures that others may consider too "far-out" or experimental. Jim Sturgess has a very creative, inventive streak.
Jim Sturgess tends to be very impressionable and psychically open, and as a youngster, he may have been dominated in relationships with more forceful personalities. Afraid of confrontation, Sturgess may have become passive, identified himself as a helpless victim, or tried to achieve his desires in underhanded ways.
Jim's hypersensitivity to his environment is likely to be a challenge for him in other ways as well. Pollutants, ugliness or dissonance in any form may affect Jim Sturgess more than most people.
Emotionally, it could be difficult for Jim Sturgess to discern illusion from reality. He is impressionable and sympathetic toward others. However, Sturgess tends to idealize others and could adopt a fantasy view of a wonderful marriage, causing disappointment later on.
Both sensitive and sensuous, Jim blends charm and energy. Jim Sturgess has a healthy sexuality and a good balance between activity and passivity. He may be fond of singing, dancing, music and drama. Romance comes easily to Jim, and his romantic relationships are passionate.
