Developmental Tasks: To engage in deep involvement with oneself via multifaceted inquiry. To process one’s experience through the lens of challenging the status quo.
If you think that your life’s task is to find a cozy spot smack dab in the middle of the “establishment” and go along to get along- please think again.
What you’re really here to do is live a life of deep significance which entails asking the right questions, which will “rock the boat”. Notice that I didn’t mention being liked as a top priority or concern, because when you sincerely embark upon this mission, it’s a toss up: some people will admire and love what you’re doing while others will find you unsettling because you’re disrupting their comfortable life with all of your damn questions.
Ideally, your aspirations center around turning over any and every rock which will reveal the REAL truth about precisely who and what you are. The question which permeates your astrological signature is: are you prepared to digest “the good, the bad and the ugly”? This arrangement in your birth chart suggests that the work of deep mining is done via an emotional need to gather, classify and analyze information. For you, there’s a safety in breaking things and sometimes people into parts in order to understand each component more fully.
An inquiring and versatile mind can serve as one of your many gifts. When optimally used, your intellect can be the instrument which can see through self-created facades as well as any b.s. that others attempt to send in your direction.
To question what seems to be “universally” accepted is one of your specialties. The things which usually get classified under: “Well, everyone knows that…..” are precisely the targets for which you aim. In your world, being well-adjusted isn’t about fitting into existing systems. Rather it’s about challenging them, rebelling against them and creating a more sound and liberating way of life for yourself and others.
As a reminder, it needs to be said that some of the lessons you’ll be learning won’t manifest in a lighthearted fashion. The minute you decide to actualize the potential that your birth chart contains, there will be tests. It’s important to ask yourself: no matter what I see or encounter, am I willing to look it directly in the eye and keep going?
A picture of this combination working in a constructive fashion is a versatile, intellectually adept rebel who’s also psychologically sophisticated.
Understanding which ideas to take seriously and implement into your life is crucial to your existence. There are a couple of things to take into consideration : (1) just because it ignites your passion doesn’t mean it’s something to run with and (2) it’s possible to agree with the majority and it still hold potential for your liberation in that area of life.
Ultimately, it’s the QUALITY of your rebellion and your learning that will determine your success, not the quantity.
