Using Creativity to Build Your Character
Have you ever asked yourself why certain circumstances of life can be so challenging? The New Moon theme this month provides some unexpected light on this question. Last month there were opportunities to expand your creativity in a number of ways. The Lunar cycle this month give you opportunity to exercise your expanded creativity, by applying it to the process of building of your character.
How We Build Character
When I was a young boy, I remember my father telling me to do something because, as he said, it would “build my character.” I didn’t understand what he meant by that statement until I was much older. Now I see that building character is all about developing personal mastery. Personal mastery is developed as a byproduct of the ways in which we respond to challenging circumstances in our life.
This month you have the opportunity to focus your creative awareness on any area or areas in your life that you find challenging.
Virgo and Personal Mastery
The Zodiac sign of Virgo plays an important role in activating the New Moon energies this month. Virgo’s energy seeks to refine, modify, and adjust any personal involvement in projects or activities. It is often related to the process of work and the details involved in improving or creating greater efficiency. However, Virgo is more than efficiency, order, and details. The root motive of Virgo is centered in personal mastery.
Virgo’s attention to details and the increase in efficiency are only by-products of something more important. That something rests in the archetype of perfection. Perfection in this sense is through a long series of successes that result in mastery. At its core, mastery is a reflection of, and in service to, that which is seen as greater than the individual. The deepest desire of Virgo is to realize more that what the current circumstances are.
The meaning of 9° Taurus is appreciation. Specifically, to activate the potentials of this month, you can draw support from the remembrance of life’s past high-points. Then hold appreciation for the cyclic flow of life. Happiness and faith are linked together like warmth and beauty. Each low-point of life is followed by a high-point, the same way cold and barren of winter is followed by the warmth and beauty of summer.
You can look to the meaning of Taurus 9°, which completes the Grand Sextile, to give you additional support for creating harmony, order, balance, and a beautiful quality of flowing energy in your life.
As this month unfolds, your greatest success will come from combining your creativity and life-force toward the skillful navigation of difficult circumstances. I’m not suggesting that the entire month will be challenging. However, your opportunity this month will come in recognizing an area of your life in which you desire improvement or growth.
Once you have identified one of your life challenges, use the coming days as a creative opportunity. By intentionally applying creative energy to an area of challenge, you will access a new sense of personal mastery. By setting your intentions to turn character building into a conscious process, you’ll activate new levels of creative potential and you’ll feel as if nothing is too big to tackle.
