Paul Rudd's fundamental needs, values, and orientation towards life are symbolized by the four astrological elements. Each person has their own unique balance of these four basic energies: fire (warmth, inspiration, enthusiasm), earth (practicality, realism, material interests), air (social and intellectual qualities), and water (emotional needs and feelings).
Rudd's "elemental make-up" is described below. Remember that most people are "unbalanced" or lopsided, and if Paul is lacking or deficient in a certain element (or elements), it simply means that he needs to consciously develop that particular aspect in order to appreciate and/or work harder in that dimension of life.
Sometimes we overestimate the element that we are least endowed with, sensing it as a lack within ourselves, but more often we neglect or ignore it. The qualities described below will be reiterated and explained in more detail in the following pages.
He is a fiery individual, filled with a tremendous passion and zest for life. Paul thrives in situations where there is energy, excitement, action, movement, dynamism and drama. Along with his exuberant vitality and enthusiasm, Paul Rudd has an acute ability to visualize future possibilities, and an almost childlike faith in "what could be". Unless he has a vision, an aspiration or a wonderful dream to believe in, Rudd is not completely happy. Paul Rudd has a great sense of the majesty, grandeur and adventure of life, but tends to overlook the magic in small things and everyday life.
Paul Rudd also has a strong urge to express himself spontaneously and creatively, without conforming to others' ways or conventions. Personal freedom and independence are very important to Paul and he resists being "owned" or dictated to. Secretly, Paul Rudd is apt to feel that he is special, charmed, and somehow above or beyond the realm of "ordinary" people and mundane life.
Paul Rudd has a dominant ego and can be excessively proud, dominating, or concerned with himself. Paul has a positive, vigorous, active approach to life, and brining his intentions and desires to the fore feels more natural to him than going with the flow or merely allowing life to unfold. Paul Rudd is essentially very "yang" (assertive, competitive, outgoing, direct), and the "yin" qualities of passive acceptance, receptivity, gentleness, and subtlety do not come easily to him. Paul Rudd inspires others with his generous spirit, his idealism, spark, confidence, and joie de vivre, but he can also irritate them with his self-centeredness and his insistence on expressing himself freely regardless of others' needs or opinions. Paul Rudd also has trouble being content in the present and would benefit by learning how to consciously pacify his restlessness and achieve the capacity for tranquility and peacefulness.
Paul Rudd must strive to be aware of the feelings and needs of his loved ones because he has a tendency to be oblivious to their emotional needs, and too often, he is so enthusiastic about his own idea that he does not recognize that others have different interests. Also, Paul Rudd needs to make the effort to communicate clearly rather than just assume that others have already understood the situation. Lastly, Paul should make sure that his enthusiasm and gambling instinct do not jeopardize the things most important to him. Paul Rudd is prone to extreme ups and downs in his financial situation, family relationships and career, and he can have more ups than downs if he is more circumspect, cautious, and practical when the stakes are very high.
