Open and generous, Victor Hugo enjoys a wide circle of friends and acquaintances and he thrives on sociability and fellowship. He is adventurous, playful, freedom loving, and always ready for a good time. Hugo rarely allows obstacles or difficulties to keep him down, for no matter how bleak the past or present, Victor always expects a better, brighter future. In fact, he is uncomfortable with his own or other people's problems and emotional pain. Victor Hugo often tries to "cheer up" or offer philosophical advice to those who are hurting, but he unwittingly avoids or ignores the emotions involved.
Friendship means a great deal to Hugo, perhaps even more than love relationships or romance. For Victor Hugo to be happy, his mate must be his best friend and encourage Victor's aspirations and ideals. Victor Hugo also needs a great deal of emotional freedom and mobility.
He is likely to be a great collector of things - a real pack rat in fact - for his belongings give Victor Hugo a sense of security and continuity with the past, which is important to him. Antiques or articles with sentimental value from Victor's past are especially dear to him.
Victor Hugo may also cling rather tightly to money and possessions, keeping them "in the family" rather than sharing freely with those outside of his immediate circle.
Tremendously softhearted and sympathetic, Victor Hugo gives very selflessly and devotedly to those he loves and often allows others to become overly dependent upon him. More compassionate than passionate, Victor Hugo may become romantically involved with a person because he or she expresses a need for love, rather than out of mutual pleasure or attraction.
He is drawn to sensitive, imaginative, gentle souls - poets, musicians, dreamers - or to someone Victor feels he can have a deep spiritual relationship with. Victor Hugo idealizes love and has a very beautiful, romantic vision of what love relationships can be.
A warm, loving and comfortable home is very important to Victor Hugo and he invests a lot of his energy into beautifying, decorating and creating a lovely home. Also, Victor shares his affection with the people in his family very generously and having close family ties is a major priority for him. Being at home makes Hugo happy.
Money is liable to be an issue in his life, not because he does not have it, but because Victor Hugo cannot or will not hold onto it. Victor Hugo has a freehanded, generous, open attitude and would prefer to spend and enjoy and partake in the pleasures of the moment than to save, discipline or budget himself. At Hugo's worst, he wants an easy ride and friends will often let Victor freeload because he is such an agreeable, friendly and pleasant sort. Alternatively, Hugo could let other people take advantage of his hospitality and tolerance.
Hugo also avoids confronting difficult issues in relationships simply because it is too much trouble or too petty. Victor Hugo just wants to have a good time.
Victor's pleasure-loving nature and his emotional and material generosity discussed above are counterbalanced by a certain caution or restraint in expressing his affection, and by a fear of heartache. At times Victor Hugo is likely to be the jovial, friendly, rather extravagant person mentioned previously, but at other times he is far more contained as described here. Because he is upbeat and fun-loving, people probably do not suspect how sensitive Hugo is to being left out or unappreciated.
Feelings of loneliness, extreme shyness and/or the fear of rejection plague Victor Hugo and may well inhibit him from expressing warmth and affection in an open way. Denying himself pleasure, comfort, and "nice things" due to feelings of unworthiness can also limit the joy Victor allows himself. Heartache and a loss of love in his life - perhaps while quite young - will serve to either close his heart to love or cause him to deeply cherish the friends and love he receives from others. The saying that "true love is hard to find" is certainly true for Victor Hugo, but he will value it tremendously when it does come into his life.
The feeling that "there is not enough for me" may cause him to be very frugal and stingy with money as well.
When it comes to love relationships, Hugo is likely to feel pulled in several directions at once. In addition to his desire for depth and security in his relationships, Victor Hugo has an impulsive side and a need for a lot of variety and excitement, as discussed in the following paragraphs. These urges do not have to conflict, but they certainly can, especially if Victor acts on his spontaneous impulses without much consideration for their long-term effects on his personal life.
While he may seek loving relationships and an "everlasting" love, this is not easy for Victor Hugo to find - or more precisely, to sustain. When Victor 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 Victor Hugo 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, seemingly random events will wreak havoc in Victor's closest relationships.
Victor has deep, compelling love feelings that seem irresistible and often irrational. His love relationships are very passionate and intense, and Hugo experiences both agony and ecstasy in love. Victor Hugo is always profoundly changed by his love experiences, though this change may stem from painful and difficult confrontations or separations. He is somewhat emotionally fanatic about things he cares about.
He may be caught in a conflict between caution and optimism frequently, resulting in restlessness and discontentment. In love relationships, Victor Hugo could feel controlled, rejected or not accepted at times, and at other times experience great ease, happiness and content.
