The right environment is key to a Reflector’s happiness.
A Reflector’s gift to the world is experiencing diversity with awe and wonder and reflecting the health of a group or an organization. They have a gift for discernment.
Reflectors are without definition in any of their centres and make up just over 1% of the population. Their strategy is to wait a full cycle of the moon before making major decisions (i.e. love, business partnership, career, life changes, moving, having children, etc.) to find clarity, leading to a life of more surprise and less disappointment.
A Reflector’s presence is a mirror for others. In groups, people’s sense of themselves and the group is mirrored through the Reflector. They are the true mirrors for society with the greatest potential for wisdom out of all the types. They have the ability to take on and become many different things. They can mould to their environment and embody what is taking place. Their auras are said to be like Teflon. Nothing sticks to them. Like the moon, they move on to another phase without getting caught up in the drama that the Solar Types can emit.
They are learning to reflect rather than to identify. Energetically, they are like blank slates with very little of their own defined energy. Growing up in a world where you have to know who you are is confusing for Reflectors most of all. Understanding that they operate so differently from 99% of the world, and that that is okay, is the best place to start for a Reflector.
As mentioned before, Reflectors are LUNAR types and make up just over 1% of the population. Just like the moon doesn’t generate its own light and instead REFLECTS the light of the sun, so do Reflectors mirror, absorb or magnify the energies of the other types through their nine open centres.
Because their Identity Centre is open, they are designed to try many things throughout the course of their life, so they shouldn’t beat themselves up if they’ve changed careers multiple times, gone back to school or changed their course of study, or followed a “non-traditional” career/family/love path. That’s exactly what they were designed to do!
In fact, a great guiding question for Reflectors is “Who am I today?” or “What new/fresh experience will I have today?” Their one true internal “authority” of sorts is FEELING GOOD, and what feels good will change depending on where they are and who they’re with. The 28 day Lunar Authority waiting period applies to the major decisions in their life (i.e. love, business partnership, career, life changes, moving, having children, etc) AND NOT the mundane, day-to-day decisions (i.e. what to have for lunch, picking a new pair of shoes, etc). The lighter decisions are to be made simply by following what feels good in the moment, which again is why it’s so important to curate the people they have around them!
