He is very sensitive, cautious, and shy about showing others his feelings. Though he may love and care for someone a great deal, John Higgins rarely expresses his feelings openly and freely. Very often Higgins' love for someone is expressed by his wish to help him, do something tangible to benefit him or serve him in some way.
It is also difficult for him to receive warmth, affection or appreciation, for he often feels that he does not really deserve it or that "they do not really mean it". Higgins may therefore come across as rather cool and aloof - much more so than he feels.
A deeply ingrained critical attitude often makes John difficult to live with. John Higgins needs to learn to be gentler and less of a perfectionist with others and with himself.
Higgins works well with the public and has an instinct for what the public wants and will respond to. Having a "nest" is not especially important to John, and he may invest more of his emotional energy into his career or public life than in his private life. He is likely to be engaged in providing and caring for others in a professional capacity.
John Higgins tends to be touchy, defensive and rather territorial, and if he perceives a threat to his family or home or personal safety, he can be quite aggressive. Sometimes John feels out of sorts and hostile for no apparent reason, and this is usually due to unexpressed, unresolved anger from the past. John Higgins also has a desire to lead, to compete, or to be a free agent - and he is not entirely conscious of this desire. It is good for Higgins to have benign outlets and ways to let off steam on a regular basis, such as demanding physical work or athletics. Otherwise John Higgins may be rather hard to live with, even abusive in his relationships.
His emotional attitudes and instincts tend to be quite liberal. John Higgins does not want to be caged or dictated to, and he feels everyone is entitled to do as they please in their personal and emotional affairs. Higgins tends to surround himself with people who are unusual, creative, open-minded, unpredictable, restless and changeable, and his relationships - with women in particular - may be somewhat unstable as a result. However, John Higgins enjoys an element of surprise and unpredictability.
He is very compassionate and loves to share his feelings with others. John Higgins is always in search for new relationships and enjoy working together with others in meetings, clubs or associations.
He is easily influenced by his environment and tends to get depressed when things do not go the way he expected. Relationships are not easy for John Higgins; he could be a recluse, avoiding most contact with others.
John Higgins possesses a certain inner greatness and because of his inner qualities, he has the ability to influence others. People look to Higgins for guidance and advice, and his leadership is easily accepted by those with whom John Higgins comes in contact.
Sensitive and sentimental, John Higgins is deeply attached to his family, old friends, familiar places and the past. He is romantic and tender in love relationships, and it is of utmost importance to Higgins to remember birthdays, anniversaries, family rituals and other personally significant days. John Higgins seeks caring, emotional support, and security in his love relationships. John likes to be needed, as well as to cherish and protect his loved ones, of whom he is somewhat possessive.
John is attracted to foreigners, exotic places, traveling and people who can expand his horizons, teach him something, or show him places and worlds he has never experienced before. Sharing a philosophy or ideal with his love partner is important to him.
Moreover, John Higgins feels love and kinship for people everywhere, not only for his own family, nationality, or group. Finding similarities and making links between people from differing backgrounds or with different perspectives is a gift of his.
John Higgins shares whatever he has freely and his friends know they can always count on John's generosity and support - both emotional and material. His good-hearted acceptance and tolerance of others' foibles goes a long way toward maintaining harmony in his relationships. John Higgins also has a lazy streak and sometimes avoids confronting difficult issues in relationships simply because it seems like too much trouble and too petty. John likes to socialize and will use any excuse to celebrate with friends. He cannot tolerate being overly restricted by his love partner, and encourages his partner's freedom as well.
John's pleasure-loving nature and his emotional and material generosity discussed above are counterbalanced by a certain caution or restraint in expressing his affection, and by a fear of heartache. At times John Higgins is likely to be the jovial, friendly, rather extravagant person mentioned previously, but at other times he is far more contained as described here. Because he is upbeat and fun-loving, people probably do not suspect how sensitive Higgins is to being left out or unappreciated.
Intimacy does not come easily to John Higgins and he may appear cold or unfeeling to others due to his emotional reserve and caution. Perhaps due to painful relationships and separations in his early life, Higgins does not trust others very easily and it takes a long time to break down all of his barriers and defenses. He may feel that he has few friends or people that really care about him. John Higgins needs to learn to value and love himself more and to express his appreciation for others more openly.
It is absolutely essential for John Higgins not to deceive himself when it comes to love relationships, romance, or the true nature of others. John tends to be in love with love, and can be incredibly naive and easily seduced. Confusion, disappointments, and regrettable mistakes in both emotional and financial matters may ensue. On the other hand, it is also possible that John Higgins will use his attractiveness or charm to deceive others. Clarity, directness, honesty and realism regarding romantic relationships and people in general need to be developed.
In contrast to the above-mentioned open, tolerant, live-and-let-live policy he adheres to in his personal and social relationships, John Higgins has another, far more demanding and compulsive side when he is emotionally involved. He may become obsessed with having great material comfort, especially if he is unfulfilled romantically.
John Higgins experiences powerful, compelling emotional and sexual attractions, and he may feel that he has little choice or control over his desires. John Higgins has an intense need for love and may be emotionally greedy or insatiable. His love relationships are passionate and often tumultuous and painful as well. Jealousy, power struggles or possessiveness can become areas of conflict in his relationships. On the positive side, John Higgins can be unusually creative and bring about beneficial and healing changes in the lives of others, motivated by his deeply felt love.
John has the ability to share the abundance of love he feels with many people. But there also is a very strong self-indulgent streak in Higgins, and he has to be careful not to eat or drink too much and feel bad as a result of it.
