“There is a self, and what I have sometimes referred to as “listening to the impulse voices, ” means letting the self emerge. Most of us, most of the time (and especially does this apply to children & young people) listen not to ourselves, but to Mommy’s interjected voice or Daddy’s voice, or to the voice of the establishment, of the elders, of authority or of tradition.” – Abraham Maslow (from “Further Reaches of Human Nature”)
There’s a part of you that needs to MAKE the rules and a part of you that’s intent on questioning and BREAKING them.
You derive emotional fulfillment from establishing structures and strategies, and aspire to express this to the world in a way which has far-reaching implications. YES- there’s definitely a method to your madness, but the “gold” lies in not becoming too methodical or TOO mad.
Your heart isn’t known to be a whimsical one, as emotions are taken seriously and may grow slowly, but become deeper with time. You’ll find, however, that just because you might have always harbored certain feelings doesn’t mean they’ve panned out as being healthy for you.
To successfully navigate this sun/moon blend, it will require that you take calculated risks in the name of personal progress. Also, understanding that experimentation which doesn’t work isn’t necessarily a reflection of your level of competence. In fact, there’s a certain brand of courage included in questioning the conventional, while attempting innovation through one’s own lens.
You’re capable of accomplishing a great deal when you take responsibility for meeting your needs of internal security and allow yourself to be less concerned with doing things the “proper way” according to code 2238.445 in your imaginary rule book.
Relinquishing tight controls, the true genius within is able to radiate, encouraging humanity at large with a general map which asks each person to fill in the blanks and navigate in a way which expresses what’s most unique about them.
