Jung’s typology suggests two forms of archetypal expression. One is
the introverted traits of the sign in question, the other being the

rhythm of the sign on an intimate inner level and express the qualities
internally. The extrovert will be energized by their surroundings and
project the characteristics of the sign to the world.

People assume introverts are not as romantic and affectionate in relationships, but they’d be surprise to find the opposite. Relationships are almost sacred, and our most significant aspect within our heart. We only open up to a select few. We aren’ snobby, but it is important for an introvert to feel safe in their vulnerability. The open up to people they feel they can trust. Everything, especially emotions are magnified exponentially. Some may say we even love more. Since we don’t give ourselves away freely, it’s hard for us to let go of the people we let in our weird little world. The kind of love we get immersed in is different from your usual high school love story, and takes on a more matured and meaningful depth, and here’s the top 10 reason why being in love with an introvert could be the most special thing you’ve experienced :
THE HERO - RESCUER/CHAMPION: Mars/Aries THE MAIDEN - PURITY/DESIRE: Virgo THE WISE OLD MAN - KNOWLEDGE/GUIDANCE: Saturn/Capricorn THE MAGICIAN - MYSTERIOUS/POWERFUL: Scorpio/Pluto THE EARTH MOTHER - NATURE: Taurus THE WITCH OR THE SORCERESS: Moon/Cancer THE TRICKSTER - HIDDEN: Neptune/Pisces THE GOD ARCHETYPE - NEED TO UNDERSTAND THE UNIVERSE: Sagittarius THE DIVINE CHILD: Sun/Leo THE REBEL - RULES ARE MADE TO BE BROKEN: Uranus/Aquarius THE LOVER - TO ATTAIN INTIMACY AND PLEASURE: Venus/Libra THE JESTER - PLAYS WITH LAWS OF THE UNIVERSE: Mercury/Gemini
“The dream is a little hidden door in the innermost and most secret recesses of the soul, opening into that cosmic night which was psyche long before there was any ego- consciousness, and which will remain psyche no matter how far our ego-consciousness extends.” ~ Carl Jung
Dreams give us an opportunity to look into our subconscious mind and may allow for a deeper understanding of personal psychological transformation during waking life. Much of the scientific study about the interpretation of the messages that we are given in our dreams has been based on the work of Carl Jung, a well-respected psychologist and psychiatrist, who believed that dreams are filled with symbols that stem from the unconscious.
Interpreting your own dreams can give you an interesting glimpse into the totality of the psyche. If you’re ready for a peek, keep a journal next to your bed and write down what you remember about your dreams as soon as you wake up (because most often you will forget your dream within a few minutes of being awake). To improve your ability to remember your dreams, each night set an intention that you will remember your dreams. Also, it may help to stay free of drugs and alcohol and to limit what you eat 2 or 3 hours before your bedtime.
