The Reflector is the rarest of all the five Types. The Reflector also has the most unique and deliberate strategy.
When you look at a Reflector chart all of the Centers in the chart are white. Remember that wherever you have white on your chart is where you receive in an amplified way energy from the world around you.
Reflectors receive every kind of energy possible from the people and the community around them. That means that at any given point in time, a Reflector is experiencing everyone else’s energies.
That means Reflectors are feeling, thinking, sensing and knowing everything that is going on around them on a deep, experiential level. And, while that gives the Reflector tremendous potential for awareness of what’s up in their world, a Reflector who doesn’t understand their hardwiring can feel confused, lost, overwhelmed, struggle with direction and consistency and have a very difficult time figuring out what to do to create abundance in their life.
The purpose of a Reflector is to serve as a “karmic mirror” for their community. A Reflector has the role of reflecting back to the people around them the health and energetic vibration of their community.
If a Reflector is happy, they are experiencing a happy community. If a Reflector is troubled, struggling or feeling full of lack, they are experiencing an unhappy community. Their sense of direction in life will always be determined by their community. Because of this, it is crucial for the Reflector to be in the right community, the community who they are designed to serve and reflect.
As you can imagine, if you are so sensitive that you are constantly experiencing the energies of others, it’s difficult to connect with your own energy and feel what is good and right for you. Because of the complexity of the Reflector experience, Reflectors need three things to make abundant, authentic choices.
First they need to in a geographical location that feels good to them. Reflectors need to love where they live and love who they work with. If those two factors are out of alignment, a Reflector will feel stuck or trapped and their abundance flow will feel stagnant.
Secondly, Reflectors need time…lots of time. It takes time for a Reflector to sort out everyone else’s energy amidst their own. Not only that, a Reflector’s chart is deeply impacted by the movement of the moon through their chart, changing the nature of their own energy over the course of 28 days. Reflectors need at least 28 days to wait and feel their way into making good decisions.
Thirdly, because Reflectors have very little energy inside of themselves that is consistent, they need relationships that “reflect” their own decision making process. A Reflector has to talk through their decisions out loud and see their choices “reflected” through others in conversation, much like a Projector.
It is also crucial to remember that the Reflector amplifies energy in all nine Centers. So, even though the Reflector can be sensitive, they are also powerhouses. The depth and vibrance of their energy when they are in the “right” place with the “right” people makes them vital forces that and influence the world around them.
Reflectors, like Manifestors and Projectors, do not have consistent energy for working. Although a Reflector can experience enormous amounts of energy from others and can be tremendously powerful, their energy is not consistent or sustainable. Because of this, traditional jobs can be difficult for the Reflector to maintain without regular cycles of rest and restoration.
You can imagine if you are not designed to work, need a minimum of 28 days and lots of conversations to make a good decision for yourself, that it’s hard for the Reflector to tap into their abundance flow if they don’t understand their very unique hard-wiring.
In my limited experience of Reflectors, I’ve found that many Reflectors seem to craft a lifestyle where they are loving supported by others. Reflectors can love and feel deeply and have the potential to know the full potential of what it means to live in community together and to experience all that it means to be human. They bear witness to the human process and potential.
This can be beautiful but also disappointing for the Reflector, especially if they are in the wrong community. The disappointment of the Reflector can cause the to turn away from the world and from serving as the powerful barometers of their community that they are.
Reflectors can also experience deep disappointment about their own personal choices. When they don’t know to wait and talk through their decisions with others, Reflectors can make hasty decisions that don’t turn out like they expect. This can make it traumatic for Reflectors to trust themselves, the abundant nature of life and in their ability to tap into a prosperous life.
The world isn’t really set up for a Reflector and the challenge of feeling pressured to make fast decisions can deeply impair the Reflectors own natural process of aligning with what’s right and abundant for them. Reflectors need time and a supportive community.
