Secretive and inclined to brooding silences, it is difficult for others to really know his inner core, for Luca Lionello only trusts and opens himself to a select few. Allowing himself to be vulnerable and to relinquish control in relationships is not easy for Lionello.
Luca has intense, passionate loves and hates and is a jealously loyal and protective friend - or a fearsome foe. Luca Lionello has a nasty habit of holding onto past hurts, resentments and guilt - and to keep such feelings to himself. It is important for Luca Lionello to learn to forgive and let go, as well as to express his feelings openly and directly, rather than hiding or repressing them.

Lionello depends a great deal upon other people for emotional support and he has a large "family" of friends who care about him and treat him as kin.

Luca Lionello may be overly dependent and unsure of himself without a close partner.
Luca has conflicting emotional desires and needs which complicate his personal life and relationships. He may feel that he cannot depend on his love partner to take care of him or perhaps Lionello cannot decide what he really wants in love relationships: a parent or a lover. If his needs for emotional sustenance and love are not satisfied, overeating (especially sweets) can become a problem.
Luca Lionello often feels that he must do something or be something other than what he is in order to receive approval and acceptance from others. He is very sensitive to criticism and easily feels left out or neglected, and though he may appear cool or distant, Lionello actually cares very much about being included. Because he is so sensitive, it may seem easier for Luca Lionello to withdraw into a shell rather than risk the emotional bumps and bruises he may endure once he lets others really know him in an intimate, personal way. His reserve and caution make establishing close emotional relationships with others difficult, and Luca Lionello becomes very attached to the few people he considers "real friends". Lionello can gain inner security and strength through periods of solitude if he views them as times to nourish himself and develop his own interests, rather than as times of loneliness.
He is a sensitive soul and a dreamer who is very much attuned to the world of imagination and fantasy. Luca Lionello often retreats into his own inner world in order to escape the harshness of everyday living in the "real world". Gentle and often rather passive as well, he will not fight or assert himself, even when he needs to. Luca Lionello is very sympathetic and somewhat naive emotionally and must guard against being taken advantage of.

He is open and unconventional in his attitude towards love relationships, romance and sex. He enjoys socializing, bringing people together and having many friends of both sexes. Luca Lionello values friendship very highly and in fact, he is more comfortable being a friend than a lover. Luca desires an intellectual rapport or spiritual bond with his love partner, but deep intimacy and emotional bonding do not come easily to him. The traditional "husband" and "wife" roles do not appeal to Lionello, and he abhors jealousy and possessiveness since he feels that no person truly "belongs" to another. Luca Lionello appreciates relationships in which his love partner allows him plenty of freedom and is not very emotionally demanding.
Lionello is a very sociable, congenial person and he wilts very quickly without relationships with good friends and people to share good times with. Luca Lionello thoroughly enjoys working with others on group projects or community activities. He is quite happy when he is a part of a club, support group or team of some sort.
Intimacy does not come easily to Luca Lionello 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, Lionello 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. Luca Lionello needs to learn to value and love himself more and to express his appreciation for others more openly.
Luca Lionello has a very romantic, idealistic vision of love relationships and may be disillusioned to discover that no real, flesh-and-blood human being ever quite lives up to his dream image of the "perfect love". Though Luca frequently fantasizes about love and romance - he may avoid becoming intimately involved with anyone or making definite commitments. When it comes to love, Lionello can be evasive and dishonest with himself and others. Some of Lionello's love yearnings may be expressed through art, music or an involvement with mysticism.
