His appearance and the way Kirk Douglas comes across to others (as described on the previous page) is very congruent with his true nature (described below). He is very idealistic, and a great lover of space and freedom.
He is a gambler and an adventurer at heart, one who loves to take risks, to discover and explore new worlds, and to take the untried path rather than the safe, reliable one. He is an independent soul, freedom-loving, and often very restless. He needs a lifestyle that provides opportunities for travel, movement, change, and meeting new people. A steady routine which offers much in the way of security but little in the way of space and freedom is odious to him.
To Kirk Douglas, life is a journey, an adventure, endlessly interesting and rich with possibilities, and it may be difficult for him to decide where to focus his attention and efforts. Kirk Douglas probably traveled around and experimented with many different paths before he settled on a particular career. Or he may go from one project to the next, for once the challenge and vital interest is gone, he is very quick to move on. Commitment, discipline, focus, and concentration are not his strong points. Douglas can be irresponsible and disinclined to take on the burdens and limitations of adult life.
An incurable optimist, he has big dreams, aspirations, and hopes for the future and is usually pursuing some distant goal. Kirk Douglas has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush his spirit. Douglas always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Kirk Douglas has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and he is philosophical about his mistakes. Kirk has the ability to sense future trends, to see the big picture, and he likes to theorize and speculate. However, attending to all of the details and practical requirements of implementing his theories is bothersome to him.
Douglas expresses himself in a very open, direct, and straightforward manner and is often blunt and tactless as well. Because he does not take himself too seriously, he may not realize how deeply his candid statements can wound more sensitive souls. In fact, though he may not realize it, Kirk's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of his worst faults.
Kirk Douglas does enjoy being in close relationships, but he needs freedom also and he does not do well with a possessive, clinging, or emotionally demanding partner. He is quite generous, and heartily dislikes pettiness in others. Someone who shares his ideals, his sense of fun, and his zest for life would be the right companion for Douglas.
Leading groups and classes, and being involved in community efforts, social activities, events or movements are areas where Kirk Douglas really shines and expresses his creativity. An awareness of politics or the larger social impact of individual actions is natural to him.
His conscious intentions and goals are frequently opposed by his unconscious beliefs and desires. If Kirk Douglas overrides his instincts and emotions because they seem to lead him in a direction diametrically opposed to the one he consciously desires, his emotions can become unruly. Poor relationships with women and/or difficulties in close one-to-one relationships are also an indication that he is doing this. However, if Kirk Douglas attends to his emotional urges and feelings, and listen to the voice of his intuition, dreams, and gut feelings, they will give his life balance and greater satisfaction.
He is an original! Kirk Douglas radiates a sort of electrical excitement about the things he is interested in, and conveys this to others, but he also gets bored rather quickly. Kirk does not mind being a bit unusual or breaking a few rules either.
He is polite and gallant and makes a special effort to meet others half-way. Kirk Douglas has the ability to give and receive love. Nurturing friendships, personal love relationships and social life is important to him.
