MEntity: ... With the Scholar energy coming in, a kind of detached, cool-headedness might be involved around all of this and throughout the year. Even as there may be startling realizations or events, the Scholar year tends to help minimize the drama. In the Positive Pole, KNOWLEDGE, our students will likely pull from experience as a means of keeping perspective, gaining insight, and exploring options, while if in the Negative Pole, THEORY, our students may decide what is true without having any basis of experience for this conclusion, making decisions and taking actions based from lack of experience. The latter is how one learns to make decisions based on experience, so it is not a “bad thing” to be in Theory and to take risks that then gain one experience that can be turned into Knowledge. However, sometimes the decisions and choices are to take no risk, take no action, and to remain locked in familiarity, which is one of the slowest forms of “death” for a Scholar. By “death” we mean that the life force slowly drains from them in ways that become reflected as a lack of enthusiasm, a lack of curiosity, a lack of effort, a lack of interest, a lack of openness and inquisitiveness. These Scholars “know what they know” and that is determined to be enough, even if it is painfully outdated knowledge. And so the year of the Scholar can be explored in such a way, as well, locked in familiarity, lack of enthusiasm and curiosity, distanced from the very life force that fuels you.
