Robert Downey Jr.
Even-tempered and peace loving, he is not easily ruffled and is rarely given to emotional displays. Robert Downey Jr. has a calming effect on more high-strung or volatile people, and an emotional steadiness that others find soothing. Though gentle and not easily provoked, Downey is tremendously stubborn and resists any change that requires an emotional adjustment, such as changes in his home life or marriage.
Robert Downey Jr. seeks security and loyalty in love relationships, is extremely devoted to his loved ones and provides a warm, nurturing atmosphere for them. However, Downey tends to cling to others and prevent them from changing.
A great deal of physical affection, closeness and touching is crucial to Robert's well-being, and he has a tendency to overindulge in sensual comforts and pleasures. At times Robert Downey Jr. substitutes food for emotional comfort and love.
Downey 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 Robert, and he may invest more of his emotional energy into his career or public life than in his private life. Providing and caring for others, in a professional capacity is very likely.
Emotionally he is very sensitive, dreamy, gentle and easily influenced. If he is with harmonious people and in congenial surroundings, Robert Downey Jr. flourishes, but negative people or dissonant energies very quickly bring him down. His emotional boundaries tend to be very loose and permeable. Robert Downey Jr. feels what others feel, and physically he is very open and impressionable. Standing up for himself, saying no when he wants to, as well as recognizing and respecting others' limitations and boundaries are important lessons for Robert Downey Jr. to learn. Robert Downey Jr. should beware of a tendency for martyrdom out of pity for others' problems.
He enjoys emotional intensity and is attracted to the mysterious, the unknown, and dangerous or challenging experiences that draw on all of his inner resources. He is able to handle an emotional crisis very well and is interested in the underlying root of emotional problems and how to cure them. Robert Downey Jr. insists on bringing feelings between people out into the open, for he craves real closeness and intimacy in his relationships, without barriers or secrets.
His relationships have an emotional overtone and Robert Downey Jr. has a strong desire to share his feelings with others. His circle of friends is likely to be large and Robert enjoys many pleasant meeting with them.
His love feelings and desires are easily aroused but he may find it difficult to sustain his romantic interest in relationships after the initial, exciting "chase and conquest". Robert Downey Jr. enjoys a dynamic partner with a strong independent streak, and he does not like things to become too peaceful or predictable in the love arena. Robert wants to see sparks fly once in awhile, even if it means instigating a fight.
Robert is attracted to foreigners, exotic places, traveling, and to people who can expand his horizons, teach him something, or show Downey places and worlds he has never experienced before. Sharing a philosophy or ideal with his love partner is important to him.
Also, Robert Downey Jr. feels love and kinship for people everywhere, not only with 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.
There can be a lack of harmony or satisfaction in Downey's romantic relationships - not necessarily a great deal of open conflict, but simply an underlying tension or discontent. This is because the people Robert Downey Jr. finds likeable, lovable, and agreeable to he may not be at all attuned to his sexual tastes and needs. Another, more direct way of saying this is, the people Robert loves and the people Robert wants to make love with are very different from one another. Robert Downey Jr. may be confused about what he really needs and wants in personal relationships. Downey needs to acknowledge that he has some conflicting desires (such as a partner who is very gentle and sensitive but also a powerful, dominant personality, or security and commitment in love relationships but also a lot of freedom and excitement.) Trying to satisfy both sides of the equation can be a tricky challenge.
While he may seek loving relationships and an "everlasting" love, this is not easy for Robert Downey Jr. to find - or more precisely, to sustain. When Robert becomes romantically involved with someone, either he or the other person will create rifts once a certain level of comfort and predictability has been achieved. Even if there is no outward break in the relationship, a certain emotional aloofness or dissatisfaction is apt to develop. This is because Robert Downey Jr. really wants both closeness and absolute freedom - a combination that is difficult to attain. However, if he does not at least attempt to honestly fulfill both of these urges, events seemingly out of the blue will wreak havoc in Robert's closest relationships.
He is prone to get involved in highly intense, even obsessive relationships - "fatal attractions", so to speak. At its darkest, this urge for intensity in the personal arena may compel Robert Downey Jr. to choose friends or mates who are rather dangerous or dishonorable characters with a penchant for manipulating and inflicting pain on their "loved ones". On the other hand, Downey may be tempted to use his own sexuality or charm to play the same sort of game, to use love or friendship as a bargaining chip or to gain power over others. Even if his intentions are basically good, Robert Downey Jr. will find that his closest relationships are rather tumultuous affairs in which some rather unlovely aspects of his (such as jealousy and the desire to dominate or to be a victim) keep showing their faces. These are qualities that need to be understood and ultimately outgrown.
