Because he is supportive and nurturing (as mentioned in the previous chapter), and also practical and well grounded (as described below), Thomas Huxley is a great source of solace and emotional support for other people. Thomas Huxley is actually more stable and solid than his rather mellow demeanor would suggest.
He is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of his greatest assets. Once Huxley's course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
Thomas Huxley has a very practical nature; he wants to see concrete, tangible results for his efforts, and he is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of his "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for he has a great love of the physical world and he wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Thomas Huxley will work long and persistently, he also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and he wants to enjoy what he has worked for. In fact, Huxley can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Thomas Huxley also loves the beauty of the natural world and he probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, his needs are simple and he is easy to please. Thomas Huxley has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless he is forced to do so. He is not very demanding emotionally, though he does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of his faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon Huxley for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, Thomas Huxley usually maintains his poise and equanimity. Thomas Huxley also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. He makes an excellent parent, especially if he follows his instincts more often than "the experts".
Thomas has three major faults: one is his bullheaded obstinacy. The second is his unwillingness to deviate from his safe, predictable routine. And the third is Huxley's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Thomas Huxley lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to new horizons.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to Huxley. Thomas Huxley has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy him; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Thomas Huxley may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
He is assertive, energetic, active, courageous and vital. Thomas Huxley has a very strong physical drive that expresses itself as sexuality and passion, a desire to compete with others, and a tendency to fight. Thomas Huxley has a victorious spirit and the will to win.
Along with his energy and drive, Thomas Huxley has high ideals and an active fantasy life. There is a dreamer and an idealist in Huxley, as well as a doer and a fighter. Thomas wants to win but not at the expense of others, and this may be somewhat of a dilemma for him.
He is imaginative and sensitive to anything colorful, beautiful or magical. He is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, music and mysticism. His spiritual values color Thomas' whole perspective and approach to life. He is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
