QUIZ: What is your sensitivity superpower?

Jun 04, 2022

Growing up people always told me, "you're very sensitive," or even "you're an empath." While these statements were not always said in a negative way and I took pride in being an empath throughout my adolescence and adulthood, I began to increasingly recognize some of the issues that it presented to me. 


The biggest problem I had was that I did not know how to manage my energy and I often took on responsibilities and burdens that were not mine to carry. 


I've written here about how astrology helped me accept being highly sensitive, but the biggest thing astrology provided to me was a framework for understanding and managing my energy. 

We all live on the same Earth but we are experiencing it in different ways. If you identify with being highly sensitive but don’t feel like you fit “the mold” or want to stop this trait from being part of you, your chart can help guide you to finding the strengths in your sensitivity as well as seasons and cycles of your energy.


Learning to use astrology in this way requires a dedication to the process of self-observation and reflection, however this is usually something that sensitive people tend to be quite good at if they allow themselves to prioritize taking care of themselves in this way.


Issues Sensitive Empaths Face (And Their Gifts)

Sensitive people tend to be highly intuitive and perceptive with heightened abilities with their senses or clairs:

  1. Clairvoyance or clear seeing
  2. Clairaudience or clear hearing
  3. Clairsentience or clear feeling
  4. Claircognizance or clear knowing
  5. Clairaliece or clear smelling
  6. Clairgustance or clear tasting 


Sensitive and empathic people tend to have special relationships to animals or plants. They feel things very deeply and tend to struggle with conflict or violence, which can sometimes make it difficult for them to advocate for their own needs out of fear of conflict or disappointing someone else. At the same time they are often fierce advocates who want to protect others or defend their strong beliefs. They tend to have rich inner worlds which can sometimes lead to anxiety or over-thinking.


They tend to need a lot more downtime and alone time than other people, however sensitive, empathic people can also be extroverts or love to do risky or even daring things. They are often able to communicate complex ideas or make connections that other people do not. Sometimes this means they feel or actually are misunderstood, while they might just have made a connection others have not yet. 


Types of Empaths


While sensitive people share many characteristics or abilities, we are also all unique people with our own passions. Our ability to notice subtle nuances and changes makes us very observant people, however what we are interested in observing varies. There are six core archetypes I see of highly sensitive people in my practice:

  • The Teacher or Guide
  • The Observant Creator
  • The Bold Explorer
  • The Powerful Transformer
  • The Empathic Leader
  • The Earth Intuitive
