From Sculpting Your Reality — the INTELLIGENCE Written Reading
“The poet, the artist, the sleuth — whoever sharpens our perception tends to be antisocial; rarely ‘well-adjusted’, s/he cannot go along with currents and trends. A strange bond often exists between antisocial types in their power to see environments as they really are.”
“Art at its most significant is a distant early warning system that can always be relied on to tell the old culture what is beginning to happen.”
— Marshall McLuhan
Virgo is famous for its orientation on service. At some point in the 20th century there was a revolt in astrology against typecasting Virgos as secretaries, nurses and teachers. This way, all the Virgo race car drivers, underwater demolition experts and computer engineers could finally feel more at home in their sign.
Yet we might seek a deeper understanding of where your orientation on service comes from. However you may feel about it, and whatever you may do, it’s there, and most days, it works for you. The winter solstice 2020 chart is resplendent with this theme, and your ability to offer what you have to the human race (and potentially other critters as well) appears as a reward and an opportunity. Above all else, your opportunity will be to participate in a meaningful way.
The meaning element is the one that seems to be lacking from so many lives: the direct experience of relevance, of contributing, of making a difference. The world is so chaotic, there seems to be little way to make contact. There are so many problems that appear to have no solution at all; it’s easy to think that one person cannot make a difference. And our lives seem so complex and stressed out, and so lacking in resiliency, that the notion of making changes can feel terrifying.
In describing the destination your astrology is pointing to, I’m not talking about merely “helping people,” which is what everyone needs to be doing anyway at this stage of history, however meekly or modestly. The arrival of Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius and their once-per-generation conjunction on Dec. 21, 2020, places you in the position of leadership around urgently needed projects whose time is coming due. Yet this is a deep personal calling, and if you want to respond, you will need preparation — and that is what you’re getting at the moment. It’s as if you receive your commission as an officer and are assigned to your new command.
Therefore, it’s vital that you think of your life now as preparation for something else. You will need every bit of what you learn, whether in theory or from direct experience; whether you do things that seem to go well or not.
Because you’re likely to become responsible for many people other than yourself, you will need to make a careful study of yourself, and of the dynamics of groups — in that order. You won’t understand the way that group psychology works, in any meaningful way, until you figure out your place within group and family dynamics.
One of the most important dynamics to understand is how family structures, and what seem to be the expectations of society, have shaped what you think is possible for you. It is this conditioning that, in order to get where you’re going, you must get underneath and unravel, not merely in concept but in practice. You have help. You have many of the necessary skills, and you are gaining more of them with each passing day.
Most of your preparation is coming in through two sectors of your chart — one related to your creative and self-creative process (the 5th house); and the other related to your orientation on relationships (the 8th house). The current scenario will hold its pattern and indeed intensify, until there is a sudden release point in late 2020 and you are jettisoned into new territory and many new responsibilities.
Movement in Capricorn (your 5th solar or whole sign house) has you excavating your deeper creativity, something that has likely always been a challenge for you. Movement in your 8th solar house or whole sign house (Aries) describes a sudden change in the way you see (and seek) yourself in your most intimate relationships. There is some overlap; the 5th describes the pleasure and play aspect of relationships, and the 8th describes any collaboration where there is some mutual investment.
