Because he is supportive and nurturing (as mentioned in the previous chapter), and also practical and well grounded (as described below), Joe Louis is a great source of solace and emotional support for other people. Joe Louis is actually more stable and solid than his rather mellow demeanor would suggest.
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 Louis' course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
Joe Louis 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 Joe Louis 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, Louis can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Joe Louis 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. Joe Louis 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 Louis for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, Joe Louis usually maintains his poise and equanimity. Joe Louis 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".
Joe 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 Louis' tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Joe Louis lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to new horizons.
Leading groups and classes and being involved in community efforts, social activities, events or movements are areas where Joe Louis really shines and expresses his creativity. An awareness of politics or the larger social impact of individual actions comes naturally to him.
Joe Louis tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. Joe Louis has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Joe has big aspirations and the desire to succeed in life in a grand way. Joe Louis tends to exaggerate, promise more than is feasible and misjudge by being overly optimistic. However, he never gives up on his hopes for the future. Louis tends to be restless and discontent with the responsibilities and limitations of life.
He is very open and receptive to the spiritual, intangible, and subtle realms, and can easily receive or give conscious guidance based on his inner attunement. Joe Louis takes many things for granted, such as the existence of an afterlife or the effects of subtle influences like aromatherapy, spiritual healing, etc. These things seem obvious to Joe, whereas to many people they are a matter of conjecture or even illusory. Joe Louis may not realize he has spiritual gifts because they come so naturally to him.
